Denmark's foreign minister defended democratic values alongside Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen on Monday, drawing criticism from China which considers fiercely democratic, self-ruled Taiwan its "sacred" territory. China has never renounced the use of force to ensure eventual unification with Taiwan, an island it views as a breakaway province. Denmark and all but a handful of countries recognise Beijing over Taipei as part of Beijing's "one China" policy.
AstraZeneca Plc has delivered 50 million doses of its COVID-19 vaccine to European Union countries, according to EU's latest supply data, a milestone it was originally due to hit in January. Repeated cuts to supplies, which contributed to delays in the EU's vaccination drive, pushed the European executive commission to sue the Anglo-Swedish drugmaker in late April in a bid to get more doses by mid-year. AstraZeneca had shipped nearly 50 million doses as of May 7, an EU official told Reuters on Monday, citing the latest EU internal figures on vaccine supplies.
At least 78 priests were ‘massacred’ in one zone of Tigray, according to an official church letter leaked to the Telegraph. The letter, which was addressed to the Synod of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, says that “priests, deacons, choristers, and monks” have been “massacred” over the last five months. Half a dozen survivors confirmed the news to this newspaper and said that both Ethiopian national army soldiers and Eritrean troops went into their holy spaces across southeast Tigray and “shot them down”. Ethiopia has been wracked by a horrific civil war since the Nobel Peace Prize winner Abiy Ahmed sent his national army into the mountainous northern region of Tigray to oust the powerful regional government there on November 4. The news comes several days after a video was smuggled out of the country showing the head of Ethiopia’s Orthodox Church Abune Mathias condemning what he calls a ‘genocide’ being committed on the ethnic Tigrayan people by the Ethiopian state. The conflict has released an almighty humanitarian crisis and neither priests nor religious sites have not been spared.

A small whale has been rescued after becoming stranded along the River Thames in south-west London. Hundreds gathered at Richmond Lock and Weir on Sunday evening after the whale, believed to be a Minke whale - between three to four metres long, became stuck. Videos showed it being hosed down by a man, while a vet performed a check-up at the river's edge, before the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI) arrived at the scene to cheers at around 9pm. A witness said that "quite the crowd" watched as the attempted rescue took place. Jake Manketo, 20, from Richmond, said: "Everyone here is just hoping they get it out. "We couldn't believe our eyes when we first saw the poor fella, not every day something like this happens in Richmond."
Opponents of Sadiq Khan on Monday vowed to hold his “feet to the fire” after increasing their strength on the London Assembly. The Conservatives, Greens and Lib-Dems each picked up one seat on the 25-member scrutiny body charged with holding the mayor to account. There were no changes in the 14 constituency seats on the last results in 2016, with Labour retaining nine seats – including marginal areas such as Barnet & Camden and Ealing & Hillingdon – and the Tories five, including increasing their slender majority 10-fold in Havering & Redbridge.
