Bali's Mount Agung has first major volcano eruption since 1963

The international airport on the Indonesian island of Bali is closed for a third day due to an erupting volcano. Bali airport spokesman Arie Ahsannurohim said the airport would be closed until Thursday morning. He said Wednesday morning that volcanic ash has not been detected at the airport yet, but observations show it has reached an altitude of 25,000 feet and was being blown southward and southwestward toward the airport.

Tuesday’s closing affected more than 440 flights carrying more than 59,500 passengers. Mount Agung has been at the highest alert level since Monday and has spewed clouds of ash for days. The eruptions marked the first major activity from Mount Agung since 1963. (AP)

    Israel delays eviction of West Bank Bedouin village

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday postponed the forced eviction of a Bedouin village in the occupied West Bank, a government official said. The fate of Khan al-Ahmar has drawn international concern after Israel said it planned to raze the village, a ramshackle camp housing 180 residents. Its residents, backed by foreign activists who have gathered at the site, have been waiting for bulldozers to move in at any time after an Oct. 1 deadline from Israel for the villagers to demolish their own homes expired.

    Farage 'happy to have another referendum in 20 years'

    Brexit supporters have reiterated their "Leave Means Leave" message at a counter-rally to the "People's Vote" march in central London. Supporters of leaving the EU were addressed by Nigel Farage, and MPs Kate Hoey and Nigel Owen Paterson in a rally that pledged to "rescue Brexit" and express "support for the Brexit Britain voted for". The event, run by Leave Means Leave and thought to be attended by around 1,200 people in Harrogate, has branded the campaign for a second referendum a "losers' vote".

    Dana White is already thinking about Khabib Nurmagomedov's next opponent, and it sounds like Conor McGregor will have to wait for his rematch. Speaking with ESPN, White hinted that he'd like to see former lightweight champion Tony Ferguson get the next shot and Nurmagomedov and his belt. While White didn't commit to the fight, it's no surprise that Ferguson is at the top of the list of potential challengers, as it's a fight UFC has been trying to set up for some time.

    8 years ago William proposed to Kate - and this is exactly how it happened

    Princess Eugenie's wedding, Meghan's pregnancy announcement and the arrival of the Duchess of Cambridge's new nephew - Prince William and Kate are celebrating eight years since their engagement! Although the pair didn't officially make the announcement until 16 November 2010, William revealed he proposed to his girlfriend of nine years while on a trip to Kenya with friends a few weeks earlier in October. In their first interview after announcing the engagement, William explained he'd planned it for a while and carried his mother's sapphire and diamond engagement ring in his rucksack for three weeks before proposing and was terrified of losing it. Kate called the moment "very romantic," before admitting it was a "total shock," but the couple admitted they'd discussed marriage with each other a lot in the previous year.

    UK firms near point of no return for Brexit contingency plans, CBI warns

    Most British companies will implement their plans for coping with a disruptive Brexit by December if there is no clarity by then on how Britain will leave the European Union, a survey by a major employers group showed. The Confederation of British Industry said its findings showed how the lack of a breakthrough in negotiations between London and Brussels was endangering British jobs, investment and economic growth. "Businesses have displayed remarkable resilience since the referendum, but patience is now threadbare," CBI Director General Carolyn Fairbairn said.

    Cate Blanchett defends straight actors who play gay characters on screen

    Cate Blanchett has defended straight actors who play gay characters on screen. Hollywood has been increasingly criticised over the past few months for giving LGBT+ roles to straight actors, with Scarlett Johansson recently dropping out of playing a transgender character in Rub and Tug following a backlash. Blanchett, who played a lesbian character in 2015’s Carol, said she would “fight to the death” for the right to suspend disbelief and play characters beyond her own experience.

    I am a terror attack survivor and this is how I am fighting extremism

    The last time I heard the joy and laughter of my classmates was on the morning of 16 December 2014 in Pakistan. It had been a perfectly normal start to the day and my friends and I were joking around in a lesson and having fun. But just after 10.30am, everything changed. Six men – terrorists – broke in to my school and started shooting indiscriminately at my friends and teachers.

    'It's a dark time': Fears Hong Kong is losing its freedom as China tightens grip on city

    When Britain handed Hong Kong back to Chinese sovereignty in 1997, it was agreed that the city would enjoy “a high degree of autonomy” for at least the next 50 years. For years the principle of “one country, two systems” has served Hong Kong well, as it continues to prosper as one of the world’s major financial and business centres, and retaining its own civil liberties, free press, judiciary and distinct culture – a stark contrast from the mainland’s authoritarian single-party communist rule. Meanwhile, the Hong Kong National Party – which argued for the city’s separation from the mainland – has been banned.

BepiColombo was launched into space from the European space port in Kourou, French Guiana, on Saturday, as it began a five billion-mile trip to the Sun's closest natural satellite. It was carried on top of an Ariane 5, the European Space Agency's (ESA's) most powerful rocket.
