The six men hurled abuse at the women and children in Arabic and German, calling them "sluts" for bathing in the nude at the pool in the town of Geldern in the North Rhine-Westphalia region. A member of pool staff, Lisa-Marie Theunissen, said she asked the men to be quiet after her customers had complained.

By Steve Holland and Emily Stephenson MIAMI/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican Donald Trump on Wednesday invited Russia to dig up tens of thousands of "missing" emails from Hillary Clinton's time at the U.S. State Department, vexing intelligence experts and prompting political foes to accuse him of dangerously urging a power abroad to spy on the United States. "Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing," Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, told reporters. Clinton, a Democrat who faces Trump in the Nov. 8 U.S. presidential election, responded with a campaign statement saying he was posing a possible national security threat.

A tourist guide has stumbled across a giant dinosaur footprint that is one of the biggest ever found. Argentine paleontologist Sebastian Apesteguia, who is studying the find, said the biped dinosaur, which once roamed South America, is the most likely creator of the 1.2 metre-wide print. It was found some 40 miles (64km) outside the city of Sucre in central Bolivia, in an area well known for dinosaur tracks being found in the soft clay of the region.

Britain could face a "surge" in migration from EU nationals rushing to come in before restrictions are imposed, MPs have warned. The Home Affairs Select Committee is urging Theresa May to impose a "cut-off date" for them to settle permanently in the UK to avoid a spike in applications. In a report published today, the MPs say moves to restrict immigration - as expected after Brexit - will invariably lead to a sharp rise in numbers before the deadline.

By Makiko Yamazaki TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's Nintendo Co Ltd booked a quarterly operating loss on a sharply stronger yen and delayed the launch of an accessory for Pokemon GO, but hopes for long-term growth are running high on the mobile game's success. First rolled out only three weeks ago, the game which has players walking around real life neighbourhoods to catch and train Pokemon, has taken the world by storm, driving up Nintendo's market value by 50 percent. While analysts have been upbeat about prospects for Nintendo to make money off the game - how much it will be able to do so is unclear.
Pokemon Go has become a global phenomenon, and one that has given us all the chance to live out our monster-catching dreams since it was released last month. But for all its joys, there’s always the nagging feeling that the Pokemon that you’re catching in your local area are ALWAYS the same. It’s the emergence of of a Rattata here, and the sudden appearance of a Pidgey there.

Here’s a ranking of the top 10 UK attractions to find rare Pokemon, according to attractiontix.co.uk .

By Tim Hepher and Cyril Altmeyer PARIS (Reuters) - Airbus Group took a 1.4 billion euro (£1.1 billion) hit for problems with Europe's troubled A400M troop plane and its A350 jetliner on Wednesday, clouding better than expected quarterly profits. Delays in deliveries of another keenly awaited jet, the revamped A320neo jetliner, which competes with Boeing's upcoming 737 MAX, also weighed on Europe's largest aerospace group, whose core profits fell 4 percent in the second quarter. Airbus Group posted 1.03 billion euros of charges for the A400M following gearbox problems and fuselage cracks and 385 million for the A350, whose deliveries have been held up by shortages of seats and, most recently, botched toilet doors.
By Ben Hirschler LONDON (Reuters) - GlaxoSmithKline plans 275 million pounds of new investments at three drug manufacturing sites in Britain, signalling its confidence in the country despite last month's vote to leave the European Union. The decision came as Britain's biggest drugmaker reported better-than-expected quarterly earnings on Wednesday, buoyed by new drug sales and currency gains from a falling pound, which it said could pump up full-year results by 19 percent. GSK, which had argued against Brexit before the referendum, said the UK remained an attractive place for making medicines, thanks to a skilled workforce and relatively low tax rates.

GlaxoSmithKline (Amsterdam: GO8.AS - news) (GSK) has announced a £275m investment in its UK manufacturing sites, saying the country remains "attractive" despite the Brexit vote. The company, which is the UK's largest drugmaker, had argued against the prospect of an exit from the European Union ahead of the referendum. It said that included the so-called 'patent box' which boosts profits from patented innovations by halving the rate of corporation tax - a tax relief that has faced opposition from Labour.
