Remains of 63 foetuses found in second Detroit funeral home

Today 18:09 GMT

Police removed the remains of 63 foetuses from a Detroit funeral home and regulators closed the business amid a widening investigation of alleged improprieties at local funeral homes.

The Detroit police chief, James Craig, said officers found 36 foetuses in boxes and 27 others in freezers during Friday’s raid at the Perry Funeral Home. He said he was “stunned” by the discovery, which came a week after the remains of 11 infants were discovered in a ceiling at Detroit’s defunct Cantrell Funeral Home.

EU Brexit backstop plan 'remains unacceptable' to May

Friday 08:05 GMT

Theresa May continues to believe the EU’s proposal for avoiding a hard border in Ireland is unacceptable, senior UK officials have stressed, after a plan to consider an extension to the post-Brexit transition period raised fears she was about to sign up to a Northern Ireland-only backstop.

The prime minister told fellow leaders on Wednesday evening she was open to extending the transition period – one proposal mooted during intensive talks over the Irish backstop issue, which broke down without agreement last weekend.

More irregular border-crossers have arrived so far this year than by this time last year

Friday 15:27 GMT

READ MORE: More than half of Quebec asylum seekers had some kind of ‘legal status’ in U.S. before crossing to Canada. While that is fewer than the 1,881 intercepted in September 2017, it keeps the overall number of irregular arrivals in Canada so far this year, above the number who arrived by this time last year.

If the remaining months of the year see 1,263 people arrive each month — the lowest monthly amount seen so far this year — Canada will end the year with 19,515 irregular border-crossers arriving.

European bourses edge mostly higher as strong earnings remain in focus

Friday 08:05 GMT

Europe’s main equity benchmarks traded cautiously higher Thursday — though Italy’s stock index was under pressure — as investors appeared to focus on better-than-expected corporate results rather than weakness in U.S. and Asian markets.

Read: With ‘no-deal’ Brexit risk on the rise, analysts see uncertain path for pound. Market participants pointed to strength in a recent spate of earnings as one reason that European equity indexes were tracking slightly higher, despite concerns around Britain’s continuing efforts to extricate itself from the EU, which appear to have been delayed amid a border impasse.

Mohammed bin Salman never was a reformer. This has proved it

Friday 04:15 GMT

In June, when the ban on Saudi women driving ended, it was portrayed around the world as part of a modernising, liberalising agenda by the new crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman.

In the summer of 2017, 30 Saudi clerics, writers and intellectuals were jailed for expressing their opposition to the policies of the Royal Palace driven by Bin Salman. In many ways the crown prince has already been more despotic than previous rulers, so the murky events in Istanbul surrounding the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate should not be quite as shocking as they may have first appeared.

Aging Japan: Unclaimed burial urns pile up in Japan amid fraying...

Saturday 09:55 GMT

Unclaimed urns containing ashes of the dead are piling up by the thousands across Japan, creating storage headaches and reflecting fraying family ties and economic pressures in a rapidly aging nation.

Yokosuka was so overwhelmed with unclaimed urns that it ran out of space in a 300-year-old charnel house that was about to collapse. It combined ashes of different people into a much smaller number of urns that it now stores in a hillside cave, with about 50 newer urns accumulating at the city office.

Friday 16:22 GMT

Cook's family, who said he had moved to Costa Rica after retiring this past summer, worked together with the Missing Americans Project in a desperate bid to find the 62-year-old.
