Rishi Sunak has written to Boris Johnson warning that the UK's travel restrictions are "out of step" in comparison to other countries, reports suggest. According to the Sunday Times newspaper, the chancellor has raised concerns with the prime minister about the damage that the current border controls are doing to the UK's economy and has called for holiday rules to be relaxed.

AMMAN (Reuters) -Syrian President Bashar al Assad has tasked Prime Minister Hussein Arnous with forming a new government following an election in May that extended Assad's two-decade-old presidency. Assad originally named Arnous as prime minister last August to replace Imad Khamis, who was fired as Syria grappled with a major economic crisis and a plunging currency with much of the country shattered by a 10-year civil war. Assad took the oath last month for a fourth term in office after a presidential election last May that Western powers dismissed as a farce and the United Nations said defied a peace plan calling for voting under international supervision to help enable a political settlement of Syria's conflict.
