Germany’s Vice-Chancellor Says He’s Shocked To Find UK Has “No Real Strategy” On Brexit

Sean Gallup / Getty Images BERLIN – Germany's vice-chancellor has said he is shocked the UK appears to have "no real strategy" for Brexit negotiations and said Britain will have to accept a worse deal than the status quo as punishment for leaving the EU. Sigmar Gabriel, who is Angela Merkel's deputy and a former leader of Germany's centre-left SPD party, told BuzzFeed News the UK government will have to back down on some of its demands if it wants to strike a deal on Brexit. "Their positions are not very realistic. At the end everyone has to accept a compromise," he said. "But the main difficulty is that you cannot see a real strategy from the British government." Gabriel, who also serves as Germany's foreign minister, said he was not confident about the progress being made in Brussels talks, despite the negotiating teams getting on well. "The British government has no real strategy," he said. "When I get the reports about negotiations it’s always ‘good climate, n..

Downing Street Said There Are No Plans To Cancel Trump’s State Visit Despite Growing...

Politicians across the political spectrum expressed their disgust at the US president’s response to the protests in Charlottesville and called on Theresa May to take a stand. A Downing Street spokesperson has said there has been no change in the UK's position regarding Donald Trump's state visit despite calls to cancel it. The spokesperson told BuzzFeed News: "An invitation has been extended to Trump and it has been accepted." It was reported in July that there would be a state visit next year. Leon Neal / Getty Images Calls to cancel the visit grew after US president Donald Trump defended the white nationalists who marched in Charlottesville, Virginia. Drew Angerer / Getty Images During a press conference, Trump repeated his earlier comments that there were "many sides" to the violent protests, which involved neo-Nazis and other white supremacists. "You also had some very fine people on both sides," Trump said. "You had many people in that group other than ne..

How A Hoax Made To Look Like A Guardian Article Made Its Way To...

Screenshot A completely fake article, made to look as if it were published by The Guardian and containing explosive comments attributed to the former head of British intelligence, was likely created to serve as propaganda material for Russian media, according to experts and details uncovered by BuzzFeed News. Additional reporting by BuzzFeed News also found that the hoax story is connected to a series of other fabricated articles made to look like they had come from media outlets such as Haaretz, The Atlantic, and Al Jazeera. The fake stories used the same malicious domain technique to trick people, and all were translated from English into Russian for the same Russian news blog. The translations are all credited to a person named Addilyn Lambert. A person with a Facebook account by that name told BuzzFeed News, in Russian, via Facebook Messenger that she translated the stories. But apart from a person with that name receiving a translation credit on multiple fake articles on Russian ..

This Is What Africans Think Of The US After The Racism On View In...

White nationalists, neo-Nazis and members of the 'alt-right' with body armor and combat weapons in Charlottesville, Virginia Chip Somodevilla / Getty Images DAKAR, Senegal — For decades, a large swath of Africans have held the US as a symbol of global stability and, rightly or wrongly, a country founded on ideals of equality and abundant with opportunity. The rise of white supremacists under President Donald Trump has bowled over those assumptions. With almost 70% of the continent aged under 25, and populations increasingly plugged into social media, happenings across the Atlantic are being followed more closely than ever. Events like Charlottesville are “changing perceptions that some young African might have had that the US was a model of democracy and human rights,” said Gilles Yabi, the founder of Wathi, a citizen-led think-tank based in Senegal. “On a daily basis we see actions and situations that seem to underscore that the United States are not really in a position t..

After Sierra Leone’s Floods, “There Are Dead Bodies Littering Some Of The Streets,” NGOs...

“There are dead bodies in the water and littering some of the streets, and houses are still under water,” an NGO worker in Freetown said. Torrential rains caused massive flooding and mudslides in Sierra Leone's capital on Monday, killing hundreds with an untold number still missing. Stringer . / Reuters At least 3,000 homes are thought to have been submerged. So far, 312 corpses have been recovered, according to a Red Cross spokesperson, and Freetown’s mayor, Sam Gibson, warned that the total death toll would rise. Sierra Leone's president, Ernest Bai Koroma, appealed for urgent international help on Tuesday — declaring a state of emergency and saying the catastrophe “was overwhelming us.” Reuters Tv / Reuters “Entire communities have been wiped out,” Koroma told the media. “We need urgent support now.” Social Media / Reuters View Entire List ›

Nour was born in Syria in 2011 and has never known anything but the brutal civil war currently being fought by rebels opposed to the dictatorship of Bashar al-Assad. The conflict has devastated the country, displacing millions and killing tens of thousands. Particularly affected has been Nour's birthplace, Aleppo, which became one of the focal points of the conflict until the city was recaptured by government forces at the end of 2016.

Fundraiser For ‘WannaCry Hero’ Closing Over Credit Card Fraud

IT expert Marcus Hutchins speaks during an interview in Ilfracombe, England. Frank Augstein / AP An online legal defense fund for Marcus Hutchins, the 23-year-old British researcher who stopped the worldwide WannaCry ransomware, only to be arrested by the FBI when he visited the US, is scheduled to be shut down Tuesday. Tor Ekeland, a New York City-based defense lawyer who frequently represents accused hackers, hosted the fundraiser after GoFundMe refused to host one, citing its terms of service. Ekeland said he halted the fund for Hutchins, who on Monday pleaded not guilty to all six charges against him, because of repeated attempts to donate to it with fraudulent credit card numbers. “Some numbnut decided to run a script,” Ekeland told BuzzFeed News. “It basically tried to use a bunch of fraudulent or stolen credit card numbers, which my payment processor picked up. So we have to sort through what donations were legitimate and which were fraudulent." Hutchins' role in stoppin..

Jekesai Njikizana / AFP / Getty Images NAIROBI — Grace Mugabe, the first lady of Zimbabwe who has long been rumored to take over for her husband as the country’s next president, it turns out may or may not have actually turned herself in to South African police on Tuesday after a model accused her of physical assault.
