1.New Zealand mosque attacksAt least 49 people were killed in Christchurch after gunmen opened fire on two mosques. Dozens more are injured, many of them seriously, and the death toll is expected to rise. Three men and one woman have been arrested, with one man, 28, charged with murder. Witnesses say the man strolled in and opened fire on innocent worshipers. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said it was a well-coordinated attack and called this “one of New Zealand’s darkest days.”This type of shocking terror attack is almost unheard-of in New Zealand, one of the world’s safest countries. An attacker reportedly livestreamed the massacre in a graphic, 17-minute post on Facebook, which was soon pulled down from the social media platform. An 87-page manifesto believed to belong to one attacker also has emerged, filled with anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim rhetoric.

The North’s deputy foreign minister says the country has “no intention to yield to the US demands” or continue negotiations. She said Pyongyang was disappointed in the breakdown in negotiations during last month’s summit in Vietnam between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump, and she blamed the US delegation, saying the Americans were inflexible and too demanding.

Yes, lawmakers voted yesterday to delay Brexit (and rejected a call for a second referendum), but now the ball is in the hands of EU leaders. They’ll have to agree to give the UK more time, and there’s no guarantee that will happen. The EU wants the UK to have a withdrawal deal in place before agreeing to the delay. But the UK Parliament has already shot down such a deal twice, by big margins. So, the pressure once again is on Prime Minister Theresa May to craft a withdrawal deal that UK lawmakers will accept.Second Brexit referendum rejected by lawmakersSecond Brexit referendum rejected by lawmakersSecond Brexit referendum rejected by lawmakersJUST WATCHEDSecond Brexit referendum rejected by lawmakersReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH
