Delayed arraignment for suspect in Massachusetts police shooting

Delayed arraignment for suspect in Massachusetts police shootingA Massachusetts man suspected of killing a police officer and a bystander with the officer's pistol will not be formally charged on Monday because he is still recovering from wounds sustained during a gunfight with police, officials said. Suspect Emanuel Lopes, 20, was arrested early Sunday after police in Weymouth, Massachusetts, received a report of a person driving erratically. "The Norfolk District Attorney's Office has now been informed that Emanuel Lopes will not be medically available for arraignment today," David Traub, a spokesman for the Norfolk County District Attorney's Office, said in a statement.

Mike Pompeo rejects EU appeal for exemptions in sanctions against Iran

Mike Pompeo rejects EU appeal for exemptions in sanctions against IranMike Pompeo, the US Secretary of State, has rejected a high-level appeal from the EU for exemptions from sanctions against Iran, throwing into doubt billions of euros worth of trade. Senior officials from Britain, France and Germany had pleaded with the US not to impose sanctions next month on European companies which do business with Iran. In a letter to the nations' finance and foreign ministers, Mr Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin rejected the appeal, saying America wanted to exert "unprecedented financial pressure" on Tehran after President Donald Trump pulled out of the nuclear deal in May. Mr Pompeo added that the US will not ease the sanctions until it sees a "tangible, demonstrable and sustained shift'' in Iran's policies. "The president withdrew from the [Iran nuclear deal] for a simple reason - it failed to guarantee the safety of the American people,'' Mr Pompeo and Mr Mnuchin wrote in a letter leaked to the press on Sunday night. "We are thus not in a position to make exceptions to this policy except in very specific circumstances where it clearly benefits our national security.'' The letter was a response to an appeal from the three European countries last month, in which they said they "strongly regret" the US decision to withdraw. Some of Europe's biggest firms rushed to do business with Iran after the nuclear deal was implemented in 2015 and last year the EU exported €10.8bn (£9.5bn) in goods and services to Iran. Imports from Iran were also worth €10.1bn (£8.8bn). The other countries that reached the nuclear agreement with Iran - the UK, France, Germany, Russia and China - pledged to continue to honour the nuclear agreement to lift economic sanctions in return for curbs on Iran's nuclear program. However the US withdrawal may make that a practical impossibility. Iran has said it will stay in the deal if it still receives the economic benefits. The EU nations had sought a host of exemptions, including assurances that secondary sanctions on companies that deal with Iran would not be applied to EU businesses and individuals. However, one EU diplomat said they had not realistically expected to get sanctions relief from the US, and a number of companies such as Peugeot and Total have already cut back their business with Iran for fear of jeopardising their business prospects in the US. The first set of US sanctions, which take effect on August 6, will target Iran's automotive sector, trade in gold and in other key metals. The remaining sanctions are due to come into effect on November 4 and will target Iran's energy sector, in particular its oil trade, and transactions with the Central Bank of Iran.

Anger over 'callous' Magufuli remarks on prisoners

Anger over 'callous' Magufuli remarks on prisonersAmnesty International on Monday slammed Tanzanian President John Magufuli for ordering that prisoners be made to work "day and night" and be kicked if lazy. "All people deprived of their liberty must be treated with humanity and with respect for the inherent dignity of the human person," Amina Hersi, Amnesty International's East Africa campaigner told AFP. "President Magufuli's statement that lazy inmates should be 'kicked' is not only callous but if implemented would amount to cruel, inhumane or degrading treatment or punishment," she added.

FANG surge leads stock market recovery, putting Netflix in spotlight

FANG surge leads stock market recovery, putting Netflix in spotlightBy Caroline Valetkevitch and Noel Randewich NEW YORK/SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The FANGs have gotten their bite back, and they are helping Wall Street erase the wrenching correction that beset it in February. Facebook, Amazon.com, Netflix and Google's parent Alphabet have led the technology and consumer discretionary sectors back to record high levels in recent days. Whether they can haul the wider market over that threshold likely hinges on the rush of quarterly scorecards due soon from the four of them, starting with Netflix late on Monday.
