Russia’s Mariinsky Theatre staged a surprise concert in the amphitheatre of the Syrian city of Palmyra on Thursday, in what looked like an attempt by the Kremlin to win hearts and minds and remind the world of its role in the city’s recapture. The concert, held just over a month after Russian air strikes helped push Islamic State militants out of Palmyra, saw Valery Gergiev, a close associate of President Vladimir Putin, conduct the Mariinsky orchestra. Sergei Roldugin, a cellist friend of Putin’s named in the Panama Paper leaks as owning a network of offshore firms that have handled billions…

Ryan fans GOP civil war over Donald Trump

The Hill

Getty Images By Scott Wong and Mike Lillis – 05/05/16 08:06 PM EDT   Paul Ryan on Thursday pressed presumptive nominee Donald Trump to do more to unify the party. But the Speaker’s latest public break with Trump has started tearing Republicans apart. Members of the #NeverTrump movement and Trump’s biggest critics on Capitol Hill cheered Ryan’s remarks on CNN that he could not in good conscience endorse or support the bombastic New York businessman at this time. Ryan’s “proving that he’s an honest and courageous leader and not just another politician who quietly falls in line,” vulnerable Rep. Carlos…

Former Republican presidents will not endorse Trump

BBC

Former US presidents George H W Bush and George W Bush will not endorse Donald Trump’s candidacy for president, aides have told local media. This marks a first for the 91-year-old former president Bush, who had endorsed Republicans in the past five elections. Republican politicians are struggling to define their support, or lack thereof, for Donald Trump. Mr Trump’s remaining opponents dropped out earlier this week leaving him as the presumptive Republican nominee. Both Bush men had previously campaigned this year for former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who exited the race in February. They had each supported past Republican presidential…

Trump and Cruz are campaigning in Indiana on the eve of that state’s primary. Trump’s…

Breast cancer: Scientists hail ‘milestone’ genetic find

SPL

Scientists say they now have a near-perfect picture of the genetic events that cause breast cancer. The study, published in Nature, has been described as a “milestone” moment that could help unlock new ways of treating and preventing the disease. The largest study of its kind unpicked practically all the errors that cause healthy breast tissue to go rogue. Cancer Research UK said the findings were an important stepping-stone to new drugs for treating cancer. To understand the causes of the disease, scientists have to understand what goes wrong in our DNA that makes healthy tissue turn cancerous. The international…

Ukrainian firms turn to court over Crimea losses

Two Ukrainian energy companies have asked a U.N. arbitrator to award them compensation for investments they lost when Russia seized control of the Crimean peninsula, the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) said on Monday. The case, brought in June but only now made public, involves petrol stations owned by Ukrnafta and Stabil. It is the latest instance of investors asking international courts to compensate them for losses they blame on the Russian government. Last year, Igor Kolomoisky, one of Ukraine’s richest businessmen, brought a case before the same court seeking some $15 million compensation from Russia for the loss of…

After killing the five Spaniards, the soldiers then shot an infirm Salvadoran priest in his bedroom before opening fire on the…

 Pierre Moscovici has been leading EU efforts on tax transparency. Photograph: Laurent Dubrule/EPA Britain is under growing pressure to end its opposition to an EU blacklist of tax havens, as the European commission vowed to step up action on tax transparency following the leak of the Panama Papers. Pierre Moscovici, the European commissioner in charge of tax policy, said he was outraged by the revelations in the leak of 11.5m files from the Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca. The extent of illegal activity was unclear, he told journalists in Brussels, but much of it was “clearly immoral, unethical and simply unacceptable”….

Pope Francis to dismay reformists with ‘modern families’ document

the guardian

 Pope Francis is not expected to grant remarried Catholics the right to take holy communion. Photograph: SIPA/Rex/Shutterstock Pope Francis is likely to disappoint Catholic reformists on Friday with the publication of his views on family life, which observers predict will not change church doctrine on divorcees and gay people, despite presenting a more open approach. The Amoris Laetitia (Joy of Love) document, known as an apostolic exhortation, follows a two-year consultation with bishops to determine how the church should address the challenges facing modern families. Francis is expected to adopt a positive tone and welcoming approach to Catholics who do not fit the…
