Brother Of Manchester Bomber To Face Trial

Hashem Abedi, the younger brother of Manchester bomber Salman Abedi, will be tried in Libya over his suspected role in the attack.

The 20-year-old was arrested in Libya shortly after the suicide attack in May that killed 22 people.

Libya’s chief investigator in the case, Asadiq al-Sour, said Mr Abedi is suspected of having helped his brother and collected materials for the attack. Their father Ramadan, who was also detained in Libya, has been freed.

Hashem Abedi will be taken to court within two months at most.

Libya currently has two rival governments – Mr Sour works for the one backed by the UN, based in the capital, Tripoli.

The country has been wracked by conflict since a Nato-backed uprising against long-serving ruler Col Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

North Korea In Early Stages Of Missile Launch Operations

North Korea says its firing of a missile over Japan was “the first step” of military operations in the Pacific, signalling plans for more launches.

State media also repeated threats to the US Pacific island of Guam, which it called “an advanced base of invasion”.

The missile launched on Tuesday crossed Japan’s northern Hokkaido island, triggering public alerts to take cover, before landing in the sea.

The UN Security Council has unanimously condemned North Korea for its actions.

Meeting late on Tuesday in New York, the council called the launch “outrageous”, demanding North Korea cease all missile testing. While the statement said the regime’s actions were a threat to all UN member states, it did not threaten new sanctions against Pyongyang.

Crime Is Children’s Biggest Fear Reports Charity

British children’s biggest fear is becoming a victim of crime, a survey has found.

Among 10 to 17-year-olds, almost 40% worry about crime and are particularly fearful of theft, being followed by a stranger or being assaulted.

The Children’s Society’s annual report, which surveyed 3,000 children and their parents, found that overall, levels of happiness continue to fall each year. It wants the government to increase funding for vulnerable children.

After their safety, parental debt and money struggles damage children’s happiness the most, the charity’s annual Good Childhood Report found. Though the fear of crime is widespread, the fear is greater than the reality – with 17% of children reporting that they had been a victim of crime in the last 12 months.

Military Style Equipment Supplied To US Police

US President Donald Trump has lifted restrictions imposed by Barack Obama on the transfer of surplus military-style equipment to the police.

An executive order provides police with items including bullet-proof helmets and armoured vehicles.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the aim was to enhance public safety.

Mr Obama barred the military from handing over some types of military equipment to police after unrest in Ferguson, Missouri.

The ban followed criticism that police were too heavy handed in dealing with the protests that followed the killing of an unarmed black teenager by a white police officer in 2014.

The former US president was concerned about public reaction to images of heavily militarised police on the streets, saying it was important that police were perceived to be part of the community than being seen as an occupying force.
