The Duchess of Sussex has applied to have her privacy and copyright claims against the Mail on Sunday decided by a judge now, avoiding the need for a trial. Her legal team will on Thursday ask for summary judgment to be handed down in lieu of the trial, which is scheduled to begin in January, arguing that the newspaper has no chance of success. It is also considering an application to strike out the defence for the privacy aspect of the case. The application will be heard by Justice Warby at the High Court. If successful, it would mean the Duchess, 39, would no longer have to give evidence, or face her father, Thomas Markle, in court. The Duchess is suing Associated Newspapers, owners of the Mail on Sunday, Daily Mail and MailOnline for publication of a story featuring extracts of a "private and confidential" letter she sent her father, Thomas Markle, in 2018. She claims the article was a breach of privacy and copyright. A summary judgment and strike out application can be brought when one party believes it has an overwhelmingly strong case. The Duchess’s legal team has said it does not believe that the Mail on Sunday’s case has a chance of succeeding and therefore, that there is no “compelling reason” for trial. “We are confident in our case and therefore believe it should be determined on a summary basis,” a source said. If the judge rules that some or all of the claims should proceed to a trial then the Duchess will apply to adjourn the case. She will also appeal against the ruling that Finding Freedom, a tell-all biography about the Sussexes, can be used as evidence by the newspaper. The 350-page book was thrust to the heart of the case after its publication in August due to its startling level of detail about the couple’s innermost thoughts and feelings. The Mail on Sunday successfully argued that it should be allowed to include details from the biography in its defence, suggesting it was proof that the Duchess permitted details of her life to be shared with authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand. A source close to the Duchess said the application to adjourn the case was due to the volume of work required now that the biography had been included. “It is a massive expansion of the case,” the source said. “The volume of additional evidence, disclosures and research required could not meet the original timetable.” Francesca Kaye, a Master of the Chancery Division, ruled in September: "Meghan says she had nothing to do with the information in the public domain, including the book, either directly or indirectly. "She says, 'It was not me and had nothing to do with me', which is a simple case. If it's a house of cards, then it will fall down quickly at trial. But I'm satisfied it is arguable." The Duchess has denied cooperating with them.
A woman has been decapitated, and two others have been killed, during a knife attack inside the Notre Dame Basilica church in the French city of Nice. The mayor of Nice, Christian Estrosi, tweeted that the incident is a "terrorist" attack. Here's what we know so far: At least three people, two women and a man, have been killed, including one woman who was decapitated. The man is reportedly the sexton of the church. Nice mayor Christian Estrosi said it was a terrorist attack, and that the "Islamo-fascist" assailant "didn't stop shouting Allahu Akhbar even under medication" after being shot and arrested. The police believe the attacker, who has been named as 'Brahim', was acting alone. A suspect with a knife reportedly shouting "Allahu Akbar" has been fatally shot during an attack on police officers in Avignon. A Saudi citizen has also been arrested in Jeddah for stabbing a security guard outside the French consulate with "a sharp tool". Follow the latest updates below.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has hit back at a “loathsome” and “Islamophobic” caricature of him that was published Wednesday in the French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo. The front-page cartoon, which depicts him half-naked and lifting a woman’s niqab, comes amid a major rift between France and the Muslim world that has led to street protests and a boycott of French goods.Erdogan denounced the drawing as a "despicable attack" committed by "scoundrels”, adding that he refused to even look at it."My anger is not due to the vile attack on my person, but to the insults against the Prophet Mohammed," he said in a speech in Ankara. “We know that the target is not my person, but our values.”A statement from the Turkish presidency written in French threatened “legal and diplomatic" retaliation for the image, which comes amid a breakdown of relations between the leaders of Turkey and France.Turkey-France spatEarlier this week Erdogan accused the French President of leading a “hate campaign" against Muslims after Macron warned Islam was in crisis, promising to fight the “Islamist separatism” that he said was taking hold of some French Muslim communities.Macron’s words came during a high-level ceremony to honour French history teacher Samuel Paty, who was beheaded by a religious extremist for showing controversial cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad to his class during a lesson on freedom of expression.During the ceremony, Macron also said that France would not “renounce cartoons”, adding that Paty "was killed because Islamists want our future". Muslims are not persecuted in France says country’s Muslim leader Pakistan condemns France's 'systematic Islamophobia' as cartoons row deepens While Turkey condemned the murder, Erdogan accused Macron of targeting Muslims in a manner similar to the “lynching campaign against the Jews of Europe before World War II”.The leaders of Germany and Italy were quick to reject what they called "defamatory" and "absolutely unacceptable” comments, expressing their “full solidarity” with Macron.Extreme terror threatMeanwhile France has beefed up security at religious sites ahead of this weekend’s All Saints holiday amid a heightened terror threat following the teacher’s murder.France’s national police warned of online threats from extremists against Christians and moderate French Muslims, including imams who have publicly supported Macron. A telegram from the Interior Ministry warned of possible knife attacks, or cars ramming into crowds, saying the list of potential targets was “numerous”.
