Cars trapped in massive flood in China
The latest review of the UK’s travel restrictions is the most eagerly anticipated yet, with hopes that additions to the green list could mean a last-minute summer holiday abroad. From August 2, fully vaccinated people travelling from the EU and the US can enter the UK without having to quarantine. The rumoured amber watchlist could put thousands of holidaymakers at risk of having to stay in hotel quarantine.

NEW YORK (Reuters) -New York City will become the first major U.S. city to require proof of COVID-19 vaccination at restaurants, gyms and other businesses, Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Tuesday, as the nation grapples with the rapidly spreading Delta variant. With vaccines widely available, political leaders were combating the latest surge in infections with shots and masks rather than ordering businesses to close and Americans to stay home as they did last year. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Tuesday issued a new 60-day moratorium on residential evictions in areas with high levels of COVID-19 cases, despite a Supreme Court ruling in June suggesting that such a move would require Congress to pass new legislation.
Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said on Tuesday she expected updated advice from Britain's COVID-19 vaccine experts soon and was hoping for more children to be offered shots before schools and universities restarted in September. The UK's Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has said some children with underlying health conditions should get COVID-19 vaccines, but so far has not recommended a broader rollout of shots to under-18s. The devolved Scottish government has control over its health policy, but the JCVI gives advice for the United Kingdom's four nations on the rollout of vaccines.

A terrorist convict who launched an attack 10 days after his release from prison had boasted in jail of his intention to join ISIS and kill the Queen, an inquest has heard. Sudesh Amman, 20, from Queensbury, North London, was under surveillance when he grabbed a 20cm carving knife from a shop and stabbed two passers-by in Streatham High Road in February last year. Amman had pleaded guilty in November 2018 to 13 offences of obtaining and distributing material that could be used for terrorist purposes and was jailed for three years and four months.
Germany's Greens presented an "emergency climate protection programme" on Tuesday, aiming to reset their national election campaign after squandering an early surge in opinion polls with a raft of mistakes. The programme includes plans for a new Ministry for Climate Protection that would ensure no legislative project undermines a goal of limiting global warming under the 2015 Paris Agreement. The ministry would lead a government Climate Task Force that would convene every week for the first 100 days of the next government, and would have a veto right over other ministries should draft legislation not be compliant with the Paris accord.
