    Satoshi Uematsu removed the sheet covering his head as he was bundled into a police van - displaying a huge smile for the world’s press. Just hours earlier, Uematsu broke into the Tsukui Yamayuri-en care home in Sagamihara, 30 miles west of Tokyo, armed with a bag full of knives for his killing spree. Uematsu, who had previously worked at the centre, turned himself in following the attack and had earlier delivered a letter to parliament outlining his deadly plan, saying that all disabled people should be put to death.

  • Trump urges Russia to find 'missing' Clinton emails, drawing ire

    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.

  • From yellow to gold, Froome eyes road to glory

    By Martyn Herman LONDON (Reuters) - Chris Froome underlined his love of yellow with a third Tour de France triumph on Sunday, now the British rider has his eyes on Olympic glory alongside the golden sands of the Copacabana. The 31-year-old missed out on gold at London 2012, settling for a bronze in the time trial, but looks almost unbeatable at present and will be the man to overcome in the Rio road races. Froome's victory in the Tour's individual time trial last week, a brutal 17km uphill slog, was so dominant that he finished 21 seconds ahead of second-placed Dutchman Tom Dumoulin who could miss Rio after breaking his wrist in France.

  • Death of black man in Canada after arrest sparks race debate

    By Leah Schnurr OTTAWA (Reuters) - The death of a mentally ill black man following his arrest by police in Canada's capital has sparked calls for a probe into whether race was a factor in the incident as advocacy groups voiced concerns over police violence against minorities. Witnesses told local media that the Somali immigrant, identified as Abdirahman Abdi, 37, was beaten by Ottawa police officers. While incidents of this type are rare in Canada, they are not unheard of and the death echoed similar events in the United States where allegations of police brutality and racial bias have sparked protests.

  • Britain Facing EU Migrant 'Surge', Warn MPs

    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.

  • Santander's Brazilian bounce offsets profit hit from one-offs, Brexit

    By Angus Berwick and Jesús Aguado MADRID (Reuters) - Santander's profit was slightly above forecasts in the second quarter, despite falling 50 percent year-on-year, and the euro zone's biggest bank's shares rose on Wednesday on lower provisions for bad loans and an improvement in Brazil. A 20 percent profit rise in Brazil over the first quarter pointed to a recovery in a country stuck in its worst recession in a century, offsetting a worse-than-expected performance by Santander in Britain after its vote to quit the European Union. Overall, Santander reported net profit of 1.28 billion euros ($1.4 billion), just above analysts' forecasts.

  • Airbus Group takes 1.4 billion euro hit for troop plane, A350 problems

    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.

  • GlaxoSmithKline invests 275 million pounds in UK despite Brexit

    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.
