  • Xi Jinping says China willing to fight 'bloody battle' to regain rightful place in the world, in blistering nationalist speech news

    President Xi Jinping delivered a blistering nationalist speech Tuesday, warning against any attempts to split China and touting the country's readiness to fight "the bloody battle" to regain its rightful place in the world. Mr Xi, who is set to rule China for life having scrapped presidential term limits, lauded his vision of the “rejuvenation of the Chinese nation”.  He sent strong warnings to Taiwan and Hong Kong, self-governed regions that the Communist Party of China (CPC) seeks to unify politically with the mainland, saying that any efforts made towards their independence would be “doomed”. In front of around 3,000 CPC delegates in the Great Hall next to Beijing’s Tiananmen Square, Mr Xi declared: "The Chinese people have been indomitable and persistent, we have the spirit of fighting the bloody battle against our enemies to the bitter end.” He said that China, which has been building military facilities in disputed territory in the South China Sea and has established military bases on recognised foreign soil since Mr Xi came to power in 2012, would not seek expansion. "Only those who are accustomed to threatening others will see everyone as a threat," he said. Chinese President Xi Jinping delivers a speech during the closing session of the National People's Congress (NPC) at the Great Hall of the People on March 20 Credit: Lintao Zhang/Getty Images As state media TV cameras honed in on delegates from Taiwan the President added: “All acts and tricks to separate the country are doomed to fail and will be condemned by the people and punished by history.”  Achieving “total unity”, he said, was the “collective hope of all Chinese people.” The US does not recognise Taiwan as a separate country, in line with Beijing’s wishes. However, last week US President Donald Trump riled the Chinese government by signing an agreement with Taiwan allowing US ships to move into Taiwanese waters. China is overseeing a massive global trade infrastructure initiative to revive the ancient Silk Road, drawing interest from nations participating in the investment but also criticism from others fearing that it mainly serves Beijing's interests. China propaganda puff The Chinese leader's plan to build a "world-class" military by mid-century has also raised concerns about how it plans to use its increasingly modern forces amid regional frictions over China's territorial claims in the South China Sea. The highly-choreographed NPC, which takes place annually, saw the rubber stamping of Mr Xi’s second presidential term as well as the abolition of his two-term limit.  Many Chinese online commentators suggested that by pushing through the latter motion he was turning himself into an emperor-like figure, while others compared him to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. Critical comments were, however, largely deleted by the government’s army of censors. A major restructuring of the Chinese government was also announced during the NPC, which began on March 5. The move will see banking and insurance bodies merged and the formation of new ministries, such as those for immigration and the environment. High-ranking government personnel changes were confirmed too. Wang Qishan, formerly in charge of the government’s corruption investigations department, was elevated to the position of Mr Xi’s vice president.  Yi Gang was named governor of China’s central bank: a promotion from his position of vice governor.

  • Collector who bought Jesse James picture for just £7 on eBay told it could be worth £2 million news

    A collector has hit the jackpot after being told that an old photograph he picked up on eBay for just £7 was a genuine portrait of infamous Wild West outlaw Jesse James, worth up to £2 million. Justin Whiting, 45, bought the photograph in July 2017 and immediately tracked down Will Dunniway, a 19th century photography expert from California. He was astonished when forensic experts confirmed his picture of infamous Wild West outlaw Jesse James was genuine and could sell for six figures. Single Justin, from Spalding, Lincs., said: "Anything is possible on eBay so I kept buying the odd photograph for a few quid, like other people would buy a lottery ticket. "I noticed the picture for sale - it was ten dollars. It was a bit blurry on the site but when I got it, it was a lot clearer. "I thought to myself: 'Gee wizz, this could be a real photo!' I've been obsessed with American outlaws for years and read lots of books and study their faces. Justin Whiting's photo of Jesse James (right) and an existing picture of the outlaw at a similar age Credit: Justin Whiting / "The picture was identical to the one in my book, except it was full length. All my friends said it was the same but I knew I needed to contact experts. "I didn't dare to believe they would say it was genuine and worth at least two million." Expert Mr Dunniway confirmed the photograph was a genuine portrait of bank robber Jesse taken when the babyfaced outlaw was just 14. His report said: "The age of this image was about 1861-2 and is correct in every way to this period. "When it is compared to the much used comparison image I believe it was taken on the same day by the same photographer. "It is very evident by the face, hair cut, jacket, shirt and tie that this is the same image of Jesse James at 14 years old. One of the originals." The eBay listing from which Justin Whiting picked up an old photo  Credit: Justin Whiting / Justin then sent the 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches Victorian tintype photograph to Los Angeles forensic expert Kent Gibson who has verified evidence for the FBI. Mr Gibson confirmed the image was authentic and said: "All power to Justin. An authentic photograph of outlaw Billy the Kid sold for $5million in 2015 so the sky's the limit. "Jesse James is a very famous outlaw so this is obviously a valuable image." Justin, who has been out of work since 2003 due to back problems, has already been in touch with posh London auction house Christie's and is looking forward to spending his windfall. He said: "I'm definitely selling it. I'll be able to buy my own house and my own car. I can't wait. Good things do happen sometimes." Jesse may have robbed a few banks in his time, but Justin isn't taking any chances with his haul. He said: "I'm being super careful. That photograph is the most valuable thing I've ever had in my possession. It's staying in my friend's safe for now."

Top Democrats had tied their support for previous budget bills to their receiving of commitments from Republicans to consider legislation that would salvage the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme. Instead, they want negotiators in both parties to drop all contentious provisions unrelated to the budget to make it easier to pass the spending bill and keep the government open.

Thang faces up to 20 years in prison if found guilty, in addition to the 13-year sentence handed down in January, after he was found guilty of "economic mismanagement" at a coal-fired power plant overseen by state-owned energy firm PetroVietnam, of which Thang was chairman.

  • Hillary Clinton says she never meant to cause offence by claiming white women voted Republican because of their husbands news

    Hillary Clinton has been forced to publish a lengthy explanation for recent comments that attracted the ire of Republicans and Democrats for suggesting that white women often voted the same way as their husbands. During a trip to India, she also described how her voters tended to come from more wealthy areas than Trump voters. Her candid views were reminiscent of the moment during the election campaign when she described Trump supporters as “deplorables”. She took to Facebook at the weekend to say: 'I understand how some of what I said upset people and can be misinterpreted. I meant no disrespect to any individual or group. “And I want to look to the future as much as anybody.” Profile | Hillary Rodham Clinton The White House had earlier criticised her comments. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the president’s spokeswoman, said last week: “She is completely disconnected from the American public and certainly I think shows her disdain for the millions and millions of Americans who came out and voted and supported President Trump and still support him today.” Some Democrats also expressed concern that she had spoken out at a time when they needed to win over Trump supporters ahead of November’s mid-term elections. In particular she said the the party struggled to attract married, white women because of "a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should". However, in her explanation, Mrs Clinton said she had been asked whether Mr Trump was a “virus” or if his election was a symptom of some deeper problem in the US. Her response, she said, was simply part of an attempt to analyse the election results. hillary clinton style in pictures “Like most Americans, people overseas remain shocked and dismayed at what they are witnessing daily,” she wrote. “My first instinct was to defend Americans and explain how Donald Trump could have been elected.” People doing better economically tended to vote Democrat, she wrote, while those with less faith in the future tended to go Republican. “That doesn't mean the coasts versus the heartland, it doesn't even mean states,' she said. 'In fact, it more often captures the divisions between more dynamic urban areas and less prosperous small towns within states.” She continued to say that there was some research to suggest that women can be swayed more by men than the other way around. “As much as I hate the possibility, and hate saying it, it’s not that crazy when you think about our ongoing struggle to reach gender balance – even within the same household,” she wrote.

  • Massive volcano described in apocalyptic poem ushered in Christianity for Iceland's Vikings news

    A massive volcanic eruption helped convert Iceland's Vikings to Christianity more than a thousand years ago, according to new research. Memories of the largest lava flood in the history of Iceland, recorded in a medieval poem, were used to drive the island's conversion to Christianity, suggests the study. A team of scientists and historians, led by Cambridge University researchers, has used information contained within ice cores and tree rings to accurately date the massive eruption, which took place soon after the island was first settled. Having dated the eruption, the researchers found that Iceland's most celebrated medieval poem, which describes the end of the pagan gods and the coming of a new, singular god, describes the eruption and uses memories of it to stimulate the Christianisation of Iceland. The eruption of the Eldgjá in the 10th Century is known as a lava flood: a rare type of prolonged volcanic eruption in which huge flows of lava engulf the landscape, accompanied by a haze of sulphurous gases. Iceland specialises in this type of eruption - the last example occurred in 2015, and it affected air quality hundreds of miles away in Ireland. An Icelandic lava flow Credit: Telegraph The Eldgjá lava flood affected southern Iceland within a century of the island's settlement by Vikings and Celts around 874. But until now the date of the eruption has been uncertain, hindering investigation of its likely impacts. Scientists say it was a "colossal" event with around 20 cubic kilometres of lava erupted - enough to cover all of England up to the ankles. The Cambridge-led team pinpointed the date of the eruption using ice core records from Greenland that preserve the volcanic fallout from Eldgjá. Using the clues contained within the ice cores, they found that the eruption began around the spring of 939 and continued at least through the autumn of 940. At a glance | Deadliest volcanic eruptions Study first author Dr Clive Oppenheimer, of Cambridge's Department of Geography, said: "This places the eruption squarely within the experience of the first two or three generations of Iceland's settlers. "Some of the first wave of migrants to Iceland, brought over as children, may well have witnessed the eruption." Once they had a date for the eruption, the team then investigated its consequences. First, a haze of sulphurous dust spread across Europe, recorded as sightings of an exceptionally blood-red and weakened Sun in Irish, German and Italian chronicles from the same period.

  • British woman Anna Campbell who joined all-female fighting unit killed in Syria news

    A British woman fighting with a Kurdish armed unit has died in Syria, her father has said. Anna Campbell, 26, from Lewes, East Sussex, died on March 15 in Afrin while with the Kurdish Women's Protection Units, the YPJ. It is feared she was killed by Turkish airstrikes. Ms Campbell - who had dyed her fair hair black so she would not stand out - is the first British woman to have been killed in Syria with the Kurds and the first Briton to be killed in the battle for Afrin. Seven other Britons have died in the country while fighting alongside the groups. Ms Campbell's father, Dirk, told the BBC she "wanted to create a better world and she would do everything in her power to do that". Anna Campbell, centre, with YPJ fighters stationed in northern Syria Credit: YPJ He added: "I told her of course that she was putting her life in danger, which she knew full well she was doing. I feel I should have done more to persuade her to come back, but she was completely adamant." The YPJ is an all-female brigade of the Kurdish People's Protection Units YPG, which has around 50,000 Kurdish men and women fighting against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) in northern Syria. The group has been defending the Kurdish-majority city of Afrin from Turkish forces backed by Syrian rebels after they launched an offensive in mid-January.  Ankara considers the YPG a terrorist group, an offshoot of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) which has led an insurgency in Turkey for decades.  Ms Campbell had been qualified plumber living in Bristol before she left to join the Kurdish militia in Syria.  Her friends and commanders are thought to have tried to dissuade her from going, saying it was too dangerous.  İngiliz BBC haber kanalı, İngiliz Anna Campbell isimli kadının, Afrin'de terör örgütü YPG'nin kadınlardan oluşan kolu YPJ saflarında öldürüldüğünü duyurdu.— Son Kale Türkiye (@SonKaleTurkiye2) March 19, 2018 He said his daughter was an "incredibly principled, brave, determined, committed woman" whose death had left him "in pieces". "She was determined to live in a way that made a difference to the world and she was determined to act on that and do whatever it took," he told the BBC. "She was prepared to put her life on the line. There aren't many people who do that. "In retrospect I think that I probably should have done more to dissuade her (from going to Syria) but I also knew that she would never have forgiven me if I had actively prevented her from going. "I couldn't affect or try to influence her own perceived destiny. It was the most important thing in life for her." Britons killed after joining Kurdish forces in Syria Macer Gifford, a British volunteer with the YPG, said: "I travelled into Rojava with Anna in May 2017. She was kind, funny and brimming with energy. She had heard about the bravery of the YPJ and they inspired her to come out to fight for democracy, equality and peace in Syria. "She wanted to fight ISIS and to rid Syria of the evil that has ripped the country apart," said Gifford, who uses a pseudonym. "Anna then bravely volunteered to join the defence of Afrin. She bravely fought alongside her YPJ sisters, they opened corridors for civilians to leave and delayed the invaders long enough to save thousands of lives." About | Women's Protection Units (YPJ) Mark Campbell, co-chairman of the Kurdistan Solidarity Campaign, said: "Anna is a woman who seemed to have more humanity in her little finger than the whole of the international community. "She is an inspiration and a hero." He said Ms Campbell, who is no relation to him, was killed alongside two Kurdish women amid the air strikes. He added: "I did not know her but I met with her father this morning. I have the utmost respect and condolences for her family."

"On behalf of the Women's Defence Units YPJ, we express our deepest condolences to (her) family and we promise to follow the path she took up. We will represent her in the entirety of our struggles." Conflict between Turkey and Kurdish groups has been inflamed since January.

    By Andrew Chung WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Conservative U.S. Supreme Court justices on Tuesday signaled sympathy toward Christian-based facilities that argued that a California law requiring them to post signs disclosing the availability of state-subsidized abortions and birth control violates their right to free speech. Several of the justices on a court that has a 5-4 conservative majority expressed concerns that the law was fashioned in order to specifically target the centers, which are staunchly opposed to abortion. Conservative Justice Samuel Alito said that even if the law is neutral on its face, it contains so many exemptions that it appears to target only those with anti-abortion views.

    Jeremy Corbyn has reiterated his demands that the Kremlin be given a sample of the Novichok agent so that it can say "categorically one way or the other" whether it ordered the poisoning of a former Russian agent and his daughter. The Labour leader has again refused to explicitly blame Russia for the attack, insisting that while the evidence points towards Russian involvement, he wanted an “absolutely definitive answer” to where the poison came from. In an interview due to air on Radio 4 later today, Mr Corbyn added that he would still do business with Vladimir Putin despite "all fingers" pointing towards Russia being responsible for the Salisbury spy incident. It comes after Mr Corbyn last week suggested that a “mafia-like” group could have been behind the attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter, adding that Theresa May should not “rush way ahead of the evidence.” Mr Corbyn also appeared to distance himself from his shadow chancellor John McDonnell, who yesterday said that it was “highly likely” that the Salisbury attack was a “state execution." Russian spy poisoning | Read more Mr McDonnell’s decision to break rank on the issue comes amid growing unease within the Labour Party over Mr Corbyn’s handling of the issue, with dozens of moderate Labour MPs openly defying their leader and offering Theresa May their support. However, in an interview with the World At One, Mr Corbyn reiterated his calls for Russia to be sent samples of the nerve agent so that it can "say categorically one way or the other" whether it was complicit. "All fingers point towards Russia's involvement in this, and obviously the manufacture of the material was undertaken by the Russian state originally,” he added. "What I'm saying is the weapons were made from Russia, clearly. "I think Russia has to be held responsible for it but there has to be an absolutely definitive answer to the question where did the nerve agent come from? I asked the Russians be given a sample so that they can say categorically one way or the other." Mr Skripal, a former double agent, and his daughter are still fighting for their lives after being exposed to Novichok in the Wiltshire city. Corbyn or the Russian Embassy | Who said what Shadow chancellor John McDonnell has previously said Labour agreed with Theresa May that Russia was responsible for the attack. But Mr Corbyn maintained there had to be a relationship with Russia and said he would still "do business" with President Vladimir Putin if Labour came into power. "Would I do business with Putin, sure? And I'd challenge him on human rights in Russia, challenge him on these issues and challenge him on that whole basis of that relationship," he told the BBC. On Monday, Mrs May hit back at Mr Putin's dismissal of the British Government's claim that Russia was responsible for the attack. Her comments followed strong words from Boris Johnson, who accused Russia of trying to conceal "the needle of truth in a haystack of lies" over the case - after Mr Putin dismissed the idea of Russian responsibility as "nonsense". Writing in The Daily Telegraph, the Foreign Secretary said the use of a nerve agent against the Skripals was "very deliberate". "As Ken Clarke pointed out in Parliament last week, the obvious Russian-ness of the weapon was designed to send a signal to anyone pondering dissent amid the intensifying repression of Mr Putin's Russia," he wrote. "The message is clear: we will hunt you down, we will find you and we will kill you - and though we will scornfully deny our guilt, the world will know that Russia did it." Mr Corbyn's interview will be broadcast later today.
