UK accused of agreeing to Iran’s ‘unlawful’ request that she sign false statement as condition of her release
A Falklands War veteran has recalled the moment the Royal Navy destroyer HMS Coventry was sunk 40 years ago. Christopher Howe, 65, was a petty officer aboard the Type 42 destroyer off Pebble Island when the Argentine Air Force launched an attack on May 25 1982. Speaking to the PA Media news agency, Mr Howe said he tried to warn the ship's captain of the incoming air raid: "I'm not sure if I actually finished my statement," he said, "when there was this thud, if you like. And it was a dull thud, followed by an extreme heat, and a fireball rolling around the ops room." Mr Howe was knocked unconscious, but recovered and was able to escape from the ship. He suffered 27% burns in the attack, and feared he had gone blind as his eyelids were badly swollen. Events are taking place across the UK and in the Falkland Islands to mark the 40th anniversary of the conflict, which started when Argentina invaded the remote British Overseas Territory on April 2 1982. Mr Howe told PA Media: "There's not a day goes by I don't think about what happened then. You can't help it. And there are triggers in your life that take you back to 1982, and things that make you stop and think 'I'm lucky – why am I so lucky?' "I feel it's very important that we continue to remember this conflict, and any conflict, because of those that came forward and stood up, and really offered their lives. "They made a sacrifice. And as we say in the (Kohima) epitaph: 'We gave our today for your tomorrow.'"

After making it through the spring planting season, sometimes with the help of bulletproof vests and helmets, Ukraine's farmers are facing another challenge – finding enough diesel for the harvest to come. The war with Russia cut fuel supplies just as farmers stepped up work for the spring season and they have lost about 85% of their normal supplies since the conflict started on Feb. 24, farmers, fuel distributors and analysts say. The total area planted with grain this spring is already expected to be up to 30% smaller than last year because of the fighting, and yields could drop too if farmers don't get fuel so they can apply chemicals and harvest crops at the right time.

The hot-off-the-press launches to know now
Vladimir Putin is the President of Russia and has been leading the country for more than 22 years. He was born on 7 October 1952 in what used to be Leningrad and is now St. Petersburg, Russia. He didn't come from a rich background and was born into a working-class family. Putin’s academic results were not his strong point at school. He was reportedly very sporty when growing up and practiced judo and samba, which is a Russian combat sport. According to the Russian government, Putin wanted to work in intelligence even before he had finished high school. It wasn’t until he had graduated from college that he was then recruited by the KGB (former main security agency for the Soviet Union), and served with them for 15 years. In 1983, he married a flight attendant named Lyudmila, whom he had two children with. His political career began when he and his family moved to Moscow in 1996. In 2014, Putin was ranked the world’s most powerful person by Forbes. On 24 February 2022, the president ordered the invasion of Ukraine under the pretext of ‘demilitarisation’ and ‘denazification’.
