    EU eyes Brexit customs deal to break Irish deadlock - sources

    European Union negotiators are looking at ways to promise Britain a customs deal that could stretch Brussels' Brexit red lines but might break a deadlock over the Irish border, EU sources close to the talks have told Reuters. Accounts of how British and EU negotiators came close to a deal on Oct. 13 focus on how Prime Minister Theresa May balked at an EU demand for a "backstop" clause. This could put Northern Ireland in a special relationship with the EU that might distance it from the British mainland to avoid putting up customs posts on Britain's only EU land border, with Ireland.

    What are the Brexit terms that have been agreed so far?

    Theresa May will tell MPs "95%" of the UK's divorce deal with the EU has been agreed. The prime minister will deliver a bullish message to the House of Commons later on Monday, when she will state "the shape of the deal across the vast majority of the withdrawal agreement is now clear". Last week, the EU ruled "not enough progress" has been achieved in Brexit talks and so shelved plans for a special summit next month to sign off on a UK divorce deal.

    Brexiteers accused of using firearms debate for 'proxy row' over EU withdrawal

    Prominent Brexiteers have been accused of attempting to hijack a firearms debate in parliament in a "proxy row" over Britain's departure from the European Union. It comes after MPs from both the Conservative and Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) - hostile to Theresa May's Brexit plans - tabled an amendment to a government bill aimed at reclassifying certain firearms. The proposed change has the support of dozens of Conservative MPs and aims at preventing a government-imposed ban on high-energy rifles, "over 13,600 joules at the muzzle".

    Uber, Ola drivers strike in India, demanding higher fares

    Hundreds of drivers for ride-hailing giant Uber and its local rival Ola went on strike in the two biggest Indian cities, Delhi and Mumbai, on Monday, demanding higher fares to meet rising fuel costs that are eating away at their incomes. Fuel prices in India have risen more than 20 percent since the start of the year but drivers say fares have not grown at the same rate, making it difficult for them to meet expenses despite working longer hours. "The companies don't understand the issues drivers face ... they have reduced fares when they should be paying a higher rate," said Sunil Borkar, secretary at Mumbai taxi drivers' union Maharashtra Rajya Rashtriya Kamgar Sangh.

    French academic and convicted Holocaust denier dies in Vichy

    Robert Faurisson, a former French academic who was convicted several times for claiming there was no systematic mass killings of Jews by Nazi Germany, has died aged 89 in his hometown of Vichy, central France, his sister and his editor said Monday. British-born Faurisson was also a staunch defender of Marshal Philippe Petain, the Vichy French leader who collaborated with Nazi occupiers of the country during World War II. A former professor of French literature at the University of Lyon, Faurisson maintained that the gas chambers in Auschwitz were the "biggest lie of the 20th century", saying deported Jews died instead of disease and malnutrition.
