Susannah Mushatt Jones, last US woman born in 19th Century, dies

BBC

The oldest known person in the world has died in New York aged 116. Born on an Alabama farm in July 1899, Susannah Mushatt Jones was also the last living American born in the 19th Century. She lived in three centuries, through two world wars and 20 US presidencies. An Italian woman, Emma Morano, now takes on the title of oldest person in the world, and is thought to be the last living person to have been born in the 1890s. Ms Jones was one of 11 children. Her grandparents were slaves, her parents crop pickers. She attended a special…

India’s top court slams authorities over “ostrich-like” attitude to drought

NEW DELHI (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – India’s top court on Wednesday slammed authorities for delays in responding to the worst drought in decades, saying that some states had taken an “ostrich-like attitude” towards the calamity, and called on the government to set up a drought fund. More than 330 million people – almost a quarter of India’s population – have been hit by water shortages across 13 of the country’s 29 states, including Haryana, Bihar, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh, and Karnataka. A petition filed by Swaraj Abhiyan, a Delhi-based non-profit group, said that India’s current method of declaring drought…

Hagel says NATO deployment could spark a new Cold War with Russia

Getty Images

By Kristina Wong – 05/11/16 02:29 AM EDT Former Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on Tuesday urged caution in response to NATO’s plans to deploy four battalions to the Baltic states, warning it could lead to another Cold War with Russia. “If I were secretary of defense today, I’d be careful with this because, I’m not opposed to it, but we can find ourselves very quickly in another Cold War buildup here, that really makes no sense for either side,” he said at a media roundtable at the Atlantic Council. In response to NATO’s decision to send the four battalions —…

Black West Point cadets will not be punished for raised-fists photo

AP

Sixteen black West Point cadets who posed with raised fists for a pre-graduation picture will not be punished for the gesture. The US Military Academy said on Tuesday it concluded the group photo did not violate any Department of Defense rules limiting political activity. West Point said in a statement an internal inquiry found the picture of the 16 female cadets captured a spur-of-the-moment gesture intended to demonstrate unity and pride. The seniors will graduate on 21 May. Some observers outside the academy had suggested the cadets violated the military policy by posing with clenched fists held head high. A…

Turkish court says insufficient evidence against suspected killer of Russian pilot

A war plane crashes in flames in a mountainous area in northern Syria after it was shot down by Turkish fighter jets near the Turkish-Syrian border November 24, 2015. Turkish fighter jets shot down a Russian-made warplane near the Syrian border on Tuesday after repeatedly warning it over air space violations, Turkish officials said, but Moscow said it could prove the jet had not left Syrian air space. Turkish presidential sources said the warplane was a Russian-made SU-24. Turkey's military, which did not confirm the plane's origin, said it had been warned 10 times in the space of five minutes about violating Turkish airspace. Russia's defence ministry said one of its fighter jets had been downed in Syria, apparently after coming under fire from the ground, but said it could prove the plane was over Syria for the duration of its flight, Interfax news agency reported.

A Turkish court has decided there is insufficient evidence to prosecute a man suspected of killing a Russian air force pilot after his plane was shot down by a Turkish jet near the Syrian-Turkish border last November, the man’s lawyer said on Tuesday. Russian defense officials said at the time that the pilot had managed to eject from his Su-24 plane only to be killed by ground fire from militants inside Syria. His navigator survived but a Russian marine was killed during the rescue mission. Alparslan Celik, who was fighting with a Turkish-backed Turkmen brigade opposing government forces in northern…

Brazilian president’s impeachment process back on track as speaker backtracks

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff’s looming suspension from office was back on track on Tuesday after the speaker of the lower house of Congress withdrew his controversial decision to annul an impeachment vote against her. The Senate will vote on Wednesday whether to put Rousseff on trial for breaking budget laws. If, as is widely expected, a simple majority agrees to hold the trial, she will be automatically suspended from office for up to six months. Vice President Michel Temer would take over as president, and if Rousseff were convicted and removed definitively, he would stay in the post until elections…

Photograph: Yuri Cortez/AFP/Getty Images A Mexican federal judge has ruled that Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán can be extradited to face trial in the US, days after he was moved to a prison on the border with Texas. Mexico’s foreign ministry now has 20 days to approve the extradition, a political decision which Guzmán’s lawyers described as a foregone conclusion. “We’re convinced the (foreign ministry) will concede this request for extradition,” José Refugio Rodriguez, one of the…

Rousseff impeachment vote annulled, throwing Brazil legislature into chaos

Brazil’s political landscape has been thrown deeper into chaos after the interim speaker of the country’s lower house announced the annulment of last month’s impeachment vote against Dilma Rousseff. The surprise move – which was immediately challenged by senior figures in the senate – provides a new twist in the country’s ongoing political drama that would stretch the credibility of a House of Cards plot. Waldir Maranhão, who took over as acting speaker last week, said a new congressional vote would be needed as a result of procedural flaws in the earlier session on 17 April that dealt Rousseff a…

Ryan: I’ll step down as convention chairman if Trump asks

The Hill

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) says he’s willing to relinquish his duties as chairman of the Republican National Convention in July if Donald Trump requests it. “He’s the nominee. I’ll do whatever he wants with respect to the convention,” Ryan said during an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Monday. The willingness to hand over the convention position comes ahead of Ryan’s Capitol Hill meeting this Thursday with Trump and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus. Ryan last week said that he’s not ready to support Trump, a break from other top GOP leaders like Priebus and Senate Majority Leader…
