The British man who was shot dead after taking four people hostage at a synagogue in Texas had been on the radar of MI5, Sky News understands.

The so-called "short-lead investigation" into Akram by MI5, however, concluded that there was no "credible threat to national security at that time", the source said.

NEW YORK (Reuters) -New York state's attorney general has accused Donald Trump's family business of repeatedly misrepresenting the value of its assets to obtain financial benefits, citing what it said was significant new evidence of possible fraud. The accusations by Attorney General Letitia James mark a substantial escalation of her civil probe into the Republican former U.S. president's business, the Trump Organization, and the roles of his adult children. They are part of her effort to force Donald Trump and his children Donald Trump Jr and Ivanka Trump to comply with her subpoenas to testify under oath, which the family has asked a judge to block https://www.reuters.com/legal/government/donald-trump-jr-ivanka-trump-subpoenaed-new-york-probe-2022-01-03.

Matthew Stafford passed for 202 yards and two touchdowns in his first playoff victory and the Los Angeles Rams roared out of the wild-card round with a 34-11 win over the Arizona Cardinals
LONDON (Reuters) -British Prime Minister Boris Johnson denied on Tuesday an accusation by his former adviser that he had lied to parliament about a lockdown party, saying nobody had warned him the "bring your own booze" gathering might contravene COVID-19 rules. Senior ministers have said people needed to wait for the conclusion of her inquiry.
Millions of people tuned in last week across various channels to watch the prime minister give an explanation of that party in No 10 on 20 May 2020. Today, people were no doubt watching to see how he would perform amid building rumours there could be a no-confidence vote against him triggered by his own backbenchers. As one Conservative political operative put it to me on Wednesday: "Johnson won support because he could reach a wider base of voters as the Heineken politician who polled better than the party, but now he is a drag anchor on colleagues so it really is a question of when not if."
