  • Britain sets out reasons to bypass parliament over EU divorce papers

    (The story was refiled for incorrect change of the word ministers to MPs in paragraph 2) By Michael Holden LONDON (Reuters) - The British government's legal reasons for stating that Prime Minister Theresa May has the power to begin divorce proceedings from the European Union without parliament's authority were made public for the first time on Wednesday. In its submission ahead of a Brexit court challenge next month, the government argued that it had been "unequivocal" that the outcome of June's referendum would be respected and that constitutionally a decision to withdraw from the bloc was a power that only ministers could take on behalf of the monarchy. A series of claims have been brought to force May and her ministers to accept parliament must trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, the formal exit procedure.

  • Rise in Nigerian sex slavery in Italy fuelled by violence and "juju" magic

    By Tom Esslemont CATANIA, Italy (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - When Nigerian teenager Beauty arrived in Sicily after crossing the Mediterranean from North Africa last year, she had only hours to phone the man who trafficked her - or risk lethal repercussions for family members back home. Before her journey through Niger to Libya, a spiritual priest practicing a form of black magic known in Nigeria as "juju" had forced her to swear an oath of obedience to her trafficker. The threat of a "curse" if she broke her oath and the possibility of violence by her traffickers at home in Benin City, a southern Nigerian hub for human trafficking, were enough to trap her into sex slavery.

  • Palestinian president plans to attend funeral of Israel's Peres

    By Jeffrey Heller JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas plans to pay a rare visit to Jerusalem on Friday to attend the funeral of former Israeli leader Shimon Peres, a Palestinian official said on Thursday. It was not immediately clear if the occasion would yield anything more than handshakes with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. President Barack Obama, who will also be at the burial. Peres, who died on Wednesday aged 93, won a Nobel Prize for his peace efforts with the Palestinians in the 1990s.

  • Experts warn some painkillers ‘increase the risk of heart failure’

    Common painkillers used by millions of people in the UK can increase the risk of developing heart failure, according to medical experts. A study published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) found that non-selective non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) - like ibuprofen - could increase the risk of being admitted to hospital with a heart problem. Previous studies have linked the drugs to abnormal heart rhythm - which can cause heart failure, and an increased risk of heart attack and stroke if taken regularly.

  • Rosetta's final hours before being crashed into comet

    Final plans are being made for the crashing of a European spacecraft on to a comet, a sad but necessary end to the £1bn Rosetta mission. The spacecraft is set for a one-way trip to the bleak and rugged surface of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, where it is expected to crash at about 11.40am on Friday, UK time. Rosetta was not designed to land and so will not survive the crash, with confirmation of the sad ending expected at around 12.20am Saturday - the delay is because Rosetta's radio signals take a long time to reach Earth.
