Iran will continue scaling back compliance with a nuclear deal unless other signatories to the pact show "positive signals", the Iranian president said on Saturday as tensions with the United States escalated over tanker attacks in the Gulf region. Iran stopped complying in May with some commitments in the 2015 nuclear deal that was agreed with global powers, after the United States unilaterally withdrew from the accord in 2018 and ratcheted up sanctions on Tehran. "Obviously, Iran cannot stick to this agreement unilaterally," President Hassan Rouhani told Russian, Chinese and other Asian leaders at a conference in Tajikistan.
Passengers on Delta Airlines' Flight 500 from Indianapolis to Paris got an unexpected visit to Detroit on Thursday after an "unruly passenger" caused the plane to divert. The disturbance happened just after 6 p.m. EDT, according to a federal criminal complaint.
Police helicopters and squad cars patrolled the Memphis neighborhood overnight into Friday morning where a young black man was fatally shot by federal agents, with residents appearing to heed calls for calm a day after sometimes violent street demonstrations. The man who was killed, Brandon Webber, was suspected by police of shooting a man in a violent carjacking in Mississippi earlier this month. Webber's death prompted hundreds of his neighbors to demonstrate in nearby streets on Wednesday night in Frayser, a working-class, predominantly black neighborhood.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Friday pressed for an investigation to establish those responsible for a spate of suspected attacks on oil tankers in the Gulf that has raised fears of war. After the United States accused Iran of carrying out the attacks and Tehran rejected the accusations, the UN chief suggested that an independent entity could step in to verify the facts. It's very important that responsibilities are clarified," Guterres told reporters.
At 2:30 a.m., the choppers fanned out and set to work in teams of two. Rocket motors flashed as Hellfire missiles streaked towards two Iraqi radars powerful enough to potentially pick up the faint signature of a stealth plane. Nearly three decades later, the Apache's status as the world's premier attack helicopter remains largely unchallenged, and the type continues to see extensive action in the Middle East and in demand in countries as diverse as the UK, Egypt, India and Taiwan.
The teenage girl with pigtail braids was hunched over in a wheelchair and holding a bunched sweatshirt when an immigrant advocate met her at a crowded Border Patrol facility in Texas. "You look at this baby and there is no question that this baby should be in a tube with a heart monitor," said Hope Frye, a volunteer with an immigrant advocacy group who travels the country visiting immigration facilities with children to make sure the facilities comply with federal guidelines. Frye and other advocates said the case highlights the poor conditions immigrants are held in after crossing the U.S.-Mexico border as the government deals with an unprecedented number of families and children arriving daily.

Anita Hill has said she could see herself voting for Joe Biden, despite his past treatment of her, saying she considers him “perfectly capable of running for president”. Before announcing his presidential bid in April, Biden contacted Hill to express his “regret for what she endured” while testifying against US supreme court nominee Clarence Thomas in 1991, a hearing over which the former vice-president presided and where Hill was given little support as she alleged persistent sexual harassment from Thomas when they worked together. In an interview broadcast on Thursday evening, Hill, now a law professor, said she still holds Biden accountable, but has not ruled out voting for him if he were to become the Democratic nominee in next year's presidential election.
Father's Day, the official calendar date to honour our wonderful dads and celebrate fatherhood, is just around the corner. Recognised each June, the day sees children around the world present their dads with cards and gifts as a thank you for all they do.

Cora claimed she narrowly avoided being kidnapped and sexually assaulted on the Caribbean island. In an Instagram post published Thursday, the Florida couple, who document their adventures on their Great Escape blog and Instagram account, answered critics who slammed them for only opening up now about their experience, as the island makes headlines over the recent deaths of U.S. tourists.
Wall Street was set to drop at the open on Friday, as the long-feared hit to global growth from President Donald Trump's trade war crystallized in slashed sales forecast from chipmaker Broadcom, and more signs of slowdown in Chinese industry. Shares of Broadcom Inc plunged 8.6% in premarket trading after it cut its revenue forecast for 2019 by $2 billion, blaming the U.S.-China trade conflict and export curbs on Huawei Technologies Co Ltd. Data from China showed industrial output growth in the world's second largest economy slowed to a more than 17-year low in May, sending a chill through stock market investors globally.
March 5, 2017: Sanders appeared on ABC's “This Week,” where she was asked about Trump's claim that former President Barack Obama had ordered then-candidate Trump's phones to be wiretapped. Everybody acts like President Trump is the one that came up with this idea,” Sanders said, adding that “there are multiple news outlets” that reported the claim. While Sanders and her defenders can point to articles in right-wing media outlets to justify the claim that Trump wasn't the only person to believe this conspiracy theory, multiple fact checks of the underlying allegation about Obama ordering that Trump's phones be wiretapped have shown it to be false.
"This video refutes false reports by some media outlets claiming that Iran avoided helping the sailors working on the vessel," Press TV said, without elaborating on what reports it was referring to. The video begins by showing the 23 crew members of the tanker Front Altair in a room watching what seems to be Iranian state television's coverage of a speech by supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. According to the official news agency IRNA, the Iranian navy rescued 44 crew members from the two tankers which caught fire off the Iranian coast and transferred them to the nearby port of Bandar-e Jask.
ROME—There are few scandals in the sordid history of the American Catholic church more painful than the saga of former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, a high-ranking prince of the church who fell from grace amid a slew of lies and cover ups. McCarrick was forced to resign and later defrocked after credible allegations that he sexually abused a boy from the age of 11 until the young man was 29, starting long before the Boston Spotlight probe and Pennsylvania Grand Jury report came to define priests behaving badly. Unlike in Boston and Pennsylvania, where the local dioceses were easy to blame for bad management, McCarrick was a man of the popes, which makes him an easy target for those who oppose the direction of the church.
Gun News Daily Security, Americas All the evidence. If there's anything you need to know about the company Heckler & Koch, it's that they are pretty much synonymous with quality firearms that are in service with military, law enforcement units, and civilians all over the world. And if you know anything about Heckler & Koch, then you should have heard about the HK VP9 9mm pistol, which was first released to the general market in 2014.
Wobbles aside, Biden eventually pegged the landing: “I can no longer support an amendment that makes that [abortion] right dependent on someone's ZIP code. Biden finally stands where all Democratic presidential contenders must, to avoid the Donkey party's volcanic, socialist rage: Abortion is A-okay until the moment a baby exits the womb, and taxpayers must sponsor it, at least for the poor. Today's Democrats believe that every individual right demands a corresponding taxpayer-funded freebie.
Beauty giant Avon is championing education for youngsters this year by funding almost 200 scholarships. The brand's Avon Foundation has doubled the funding for its 'Global Scholarship Programme', which aims to facilitate educational opportunities for its beauty representatives and their children and grandchildren, boosting the amount it invests from $200,000 to over $400,000.

The Nissan Rogue is one of the most popular SUVs in America, and it's about to get redone. A naturally aspirated 2.5-liter inline-four is likely to be the base engine, but we're thinking the newer PR25DD engine from the Altima will supplant the old Rogue's QR25DE motor. Nissan may opt to offer its variable-compression-ratio turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four in the Rogue to match competitors' more powerful upgrade engines, but that's not a sure bet.
China on Friday launched an investigation into FedEx for "failing to deliver express packages" to the correct addresses in the country, state media said, after the US delivery service misrouted some Huawei parcels. FedEx apologised earlier this month for the delivery mishap after Chinese telecoms giant Huawei said it was reviewing its ties with the package service over the incident. The US delivery firm said at the time that "no external parties requested that FedEx transfer these packages".
Nissan Motor Co is considering giving its alliance partner Renault SA some seats on planned oversight committees after the French automaker expressed discontent with the envisioned governance reform, a source said. The two-decade-old partnership of Nissan and Renault was plunged into a crisis earlier this week, as the French automaker's demand for a greater say in Nissan's new governance system drew rare public censure by the Japanese firm. Renault, which owns 43.4% of the Japanese firm, signaled it would block Nissan from formally adopting an overhauled governance structure at a June 25 shareholder meeting - unless Renault received representation on new Nissan committees.
Donald Trump has said he will not fire White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway, despite a US government oversight agency saying she should be dismissed for engaging in banned political activity while in office. Ms Conway has violated the Hatch Act “on numerous occasions”, according to the independent Office of Special Counsel (OSC). The OSC said failure to punish her violations will send a message to other federal employees they need not abide by the act's rules and restrictions.

Mexico's immigration chief resigned Friday and the country's prisons director was swiftly nominated to replace him, as the country embarks on a crackdown on irregular migration through its territory in response to U.S. pressure. The National Immigration Institute said in a brief statement that Tonatiuh Guillén thanked President Andrés Manuel López Obrador for the opportunity to serve the country, but it did not give a reason for why he presented his resignation. "I thank Tonatiuh very much.
Incandescent bulbs are very affordable, dimmable, commonly available in sizes ranging from 40 to 150 watts, and they emit a warm, soft light that's complementary to skin tones. On the downside, traditional incandescent bulbs produce a lot of heat, only last 1 to 2 years, and consume more electricity than any other type of bulb. Plus, modern CFLs are 75 percent more energy-efficient than incandescent bulbs, and they have a life expectancy of 7 to 9 years.
