Friday 07:01 GMT

Critics said the pardon would be an endorsement of racism and further hypocrisy on the part of the president and blasted Trump for “attempting to lionize” Arpaio by calling him a ‘great American patriot’ despite his racial profiling of Latinos.

Just days after he was criticized for being slow to call out white supremacists and Nazis following the deadly violence in Virginia, President Donald Trump is under fire again for saying he’s seriously considering pardoning former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Australia Plans More Barriers in Public Spaces After Attacks in Spain

Tuesday 12:43 GMT

A few days after the vehicle attacks in Spain that killed 14 people, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull of Australia has unveiled a counterterrorism strategy to protect crowded public spaces.

The strategy identifies how to “make crowded places as resilient as possible to terrorist attacks while preserving our use and enjoyment of these places,” according to the text of the plan, which means it is essentially a guide for business owners on how to help prevent attacks or mitigate harm should one happen. The plan includes “information to help owners and operators better understand terrorist weapons and tactics,” which can include explosive devices, chemical weapons and vehicles, Mr. Turnbull said in a statement.

"Until February of 2016, U.N. sanctions against North Korea were strong on paper but poorly enforced, and U.S. sanctions against North Korea were comparatively weak — weaker than our sanctions against Belarus and Zimbabwe," said Joshua Stanton, a North Korea expert and former Army officer.

According to Chinese corporate filings, Sun is the listed owner of Dandong Dongyuan Industrial Co., which has shared an email address with another Chinese company, Dandong Zhicheng Metallic Material Co., a coal exporter suspected of helping North Korea evade sanctions.
