A suspected jihadist carrying a rucksack packed with knives was thought to be heading towards Downing Street when he was dramatically arrested by armed police, according to security sources. The ‘lone wolf’ suspect had been under close surveillance when counter-terrorism officers ordered his immediate detention as he came within 300 yards of the gates of the Prime Minister’s residence. It is understood that the suspect’s family had become concerned about his behaviour and reported him to the authorities several weeks ago.
By Suleiman Al-Khalidi and Angus McDowall AMMAN/BEIRUT (Reuters) - Israeli warplanes struck a weapons supply hub operated by Lebanese group Hezbollah near Damascus airport on Thursday, targeting arms sent from Iran in commercial and military cargo aircraft, Syrian rebel and regional intelligence sources said. The Israeli military said later that one of its Patriot anti-aircraft missile batteries intercepted a target over the Golan Heights that Israeli media described as an unmanned drone. It was the second Israeli interception of a target coming from Syria in the past few weeks.
I’m a torture survivor. I fled my country to seek refuge in the UK. I know the relief that comes from finally being believed and having your claim for protection accepted. But, as a new report from MPs makes clear, the transition from asylum seeker to refugee can be extremely difficult. Without proper support and advice, you can find yourselfhomeless and penniless, fending for yourself in an unfamiliar and increasingly hostile environment.

On Wednesday, the U.S. commander in the Asia Pacific region said the United States would likely carry out new freedom of navigation operations in the South China Sea soon.

The world is quietly, tensely waiting as J.K. Rowling finishes off her screenplay for Fantastic Beasts 2. If Newt's use of his Patronus is somehow a major plot point for Fantastic Beasts 2, that would presumably involve him coming face-to-face with a Dementor.
A routine cremation at a Cincinnati funeral home took an unexpected turn when flames from an "overly obese" body spread, starting an unscheduled fire. The "freak accident" took place at the Hillside Chapel Crematory in Ohio's third-largest city on Wednesday (26 April) night. "My operator was in the process of cremating remains and [the body] was overly obese and apparently it got a little hotter than the unit is supposed to get," owner Don Catchen told WCPO.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the US has announced the first move in its efforts to kill off net neutrality.

Taylor Wimpey has set aside £130m as it moves to tackle the fallout from controversial leasehold contracts agreed with customers. The company used a statement to investors ahead of its AGM to confirm that a review of lease agreements it drew up over the past decade had resulted in "unintended financial consequence". It promised negotiations with the owners of freeholds to ease pressure on the leaseholders of flats and homes built by the company.
It’s ever so rarely you get a perfect biography, a marvellous match of subject and writer — but Thomas Dilworth’s biography of David Jones is just that. It’s not just a full account of a man but a compelling argument as to why Jones should be as admired by us as he was by his contemporaries, who thought him wonderful: T S Eliot; W B Yeats (he bowed from the waist as he entered the sitting room where Jones was having tea , intoning: “I salute the author of In Parenthesis”); Igor Stravinksy; Kenneth Clark; Dylan Thomas; W H Auden; Eric Gill.
Kimi Hamilton was travelling from Atlanta to Milwaukee on a Delta Air Lines plane when he urgently needed to use the toilet as take-off proceedings were underway. In fellow passenger Krista Rosolino's view, Hamilton's removal from the April 18 flight was an outrage and so was everyone else's forced exit from the plane when it returned to the gate in Atlanta. The Delta Air Lines quick-take on this incident is that federal law requires passengers to comply with crew instructions or run the risk of being seen as a security threat.
Many brands, particularly those from countries associated with poor production quality, attempt to disguise their origins.

Gog and Magog are thought by some to be part of a ceremonial druidic avenue of oak trees running towards Glastonbury Tor. An ancient oak tree in Glastonbury known as Gog has been damaged in a fire that may have been caused by a lit candle or incense stick. Firefighters tackled the spectacular blaze and managed to save Gog, which was already dead, and made sure the flames did not spread to its twin tree, Magog.
Former Labour leader Ed Miliband’s 2013 energy price freeze for the “squeezed middle” was a stupid idea, and he was rightly pilloried for it. The Tories have aped him this time around — dangling the electoral carrot to help the “just about managing” classes — and have gained a far more sympathetic reception, but that doesn’t make the idea any less flawed. Attempts at price controls have been around almost as long as money itself — and things usually go belly-up.
Ouch! Bella Thorne films an intimate video of her lady parts. SO, Bella recorded her FIRST EVER bikini wax in all it’s glory on her Snapchat, and if the visuals aren’t enough to deter you… then the sounds will! Is this video T.M.I for your stomach to handle? Didn’t do much for me other than make me wanna NEVER get a wax. Is Bella Thorne sharing too much with us on social media?
The boss of plus-size fashion retailer N Brown on Thursday said the “heavy lifting” was over as it reported its best womenswear sales performance for almost a decade. The chain has been transforming from a catalogues business to a digital one under boss Angela Spindler and earlier reported a 2.5% rise in revenue to £900.7 million in the year to March 4. Womenswear sales, which have stuttered on high streets, were up 4.2% over the year and 10.4% in its second half, their strongest growth since 2008.
Following Theresa May’s triggering of Article 50, the scene has been set for Brexit.

The man kicked off a British Airways flight on a remote Portuguese air base for “demanding an upgrade” is a 65-year-old cancer sufferer who moved seats because he was in pain, according to the woman who helped him. Londoner Kwame Bantu was ejected from the plane after it touched down at an air force base on the island of Terceira alongside businesswoman Joy Stoney, who had stepped in to defend him. Ms Stoney, 40, said she was furious at the airline for stranding them on the island in the Atlantic Ocean "with no plan" on Thursday following the “humiliating, inhumane” ordeal the day before.
In March students blocked the entrance to Harvard’s University Hall, demanding that the institution divest from fossil fuels. Harvard University is “pausing” investments in some fossil fuel interests following a five-year campaign by some students and environment groups to pressure the university to divest itself from coal, oil and gas. The elite university has come under fire for investing its $36bn endowment in a portfolio that contains fossil fuel companies and has until now resisted a concerted divestment campaign that has also targeted other US universities.
