1. Vatican signs historic deal with China – but critics denounce sellout18:26[−]
Agreement with Beijing on nominating bishops is step in Pope Francis’s bid to repair diplomatic relations

The Vatican and China said yesterday they had signed a historic agreement on the appointment of Roman Catholic bishops, a breakthrough on an issue that for decades fuelled tensions between the Holy See and Beijing and thwarted efforts toward diplomatic relations.

The provisional agreement, which was signed in Beijing by deputy foreign ministers from both sides, was described by the Vatican as “the fruit of a gradual and reciprocal rapprochement”, following a long process of careful negotiation, and subject to periodic review.

Republican Chuck Grassley reluctantly grants Christine Blasey Ford more time to negotiate Senate testimony

The woman who has accused the supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault was given until 2.30pm ET on Saturday to negotiate conditions of her testimony to the Senate.

The Republican chair of the Senate judiciary committee, Chuck Grassley, reluctantly set the new deadline after the committee failed to reach agreement with lawyers for the Californian professor Christine Blasey Ford, who has said Kavanaugh attacked her when they were both teenagers.

4. Rotterdam prepared for worst when Britain crashes out of EU18:00[−]
In Rotterdam, everyone assumes the UK will leave the single market and customs union. We went to see how it plans to cope with the upheaval

Europe’s largest port, Rotterdam, is counting down to Brexit. “In about 200 days’ time, if nothing else happens… we will need to supervise all the goods coming in and out of the UK market,” says Roel van ’t Veld, Brexit coordinator at the Dutch customs authority.

Hard Brexit or soft? Chequers dead or alive? Does “max-fac” make any sense? The feverish debate in Westminster is distant for officials in Rotterdam, who are working on the assumption the UK will leave the EU’s single market and customs union on 29 March 2019.

8. Cue fireworks as ‘lord of misrule’ Donald Trump chairs UN security council16:00[−]
The US president will lead a crucial assembly in New York, raising fears of global backlash over Iran

In medieval English folklore, the lord of misrule was an anarchic, half-crazed clown who presided over an annual Feast of Fools. This week the UN security council, that most august and sober of international bodies, looks set to revive the tradition with its own riotous diplomatic banquet. In the chair and wielding the gavel for the first time: none other than Donald Trump, 45th US president, former reality TV host, and modern-day lord of misrule.

Trump will be in New York for the annual UN general assembly of world leaders. Some 84 heads of state, 44 heads of government and senior ministers from the UN’s 193 sovereign states are due to attend. Like other presidents and premiers, Trump will address the assembly on Tuesday. Last year he stole the show when he tore up protocol, threatened to “totally destroy” North Korea, and mocked its leader, Kim Jong-un, as “Rocket Man on a suicide mission” – before performing a dizzying U-turn this year.

9. Tanzania ferry disaster: divers pull survivor from capsized ship15:46[−]

Engineer found near engine of upturned vessel, which sank on Lake Victoria

A survivor has been rescued by divers from the wreck of an overcrowded Tanzanian ferry two days after it capsized on Lake Victoria, killing at least 166 people.

An engineer was found near the engine of the upturned vessel, Mwanza regional commissioner John Mongella said. The Tanzanian Broadcasting Corporation reported he had shut himself into the engine room. His condition was not immediately clear.

Navy divers resumed the search operation inside the sunken MV Nyerere early on Saturday after hearing sounds that suggested signs of life. They pulled a man out of the overturned ship and he was taken to hospital, a witness said, while bodies continued to float to the surface around the vessel.

Tanzania’s president, John Magufuli, has ordered the arrest of the managers of the ferry, which may have been carrying as many as 300 people when it capsized near the dock on the Ukara Island. The precise number was unknown, however, because the ticket-seller had drowned and the machine recording sales had not been found.

During a speech on public television on Friday night, Magufuli referred to negligence and said he had ordered the arrest of all those involved in the management of the ferry. “It appears clear that the ferry was overloaded,” he said, adding that the arrests had already begun.

The president also declared four days of national mourning.

The works, transport and communication minister, Isack Kamwelwe, said the government was sending sophisticated equipment to aid the rescue. “This equipment will increase efficiency in the rescue operation and we will continue with the search until we are satisfied that we have rescued everyone,” he told Reuters. At least 40 people were brought to safety on Thursday as dozens of security forces and volunteers wearing gloves and face masks spent the day hauling bodies into wooden boats.

Tanzanian ferries often carry hundreds of passengers and are overcrowded, and there are shifts in weight as passengers move to disembark. The Nyerere was crowded because it was a market day.

10. Italy releases Tunisian fishermen held on suspicion of smuggling migrants15:37[−]

Supporters say the six have rescued hundreds of people from the sea in recent years

Judges in Palermo have ordered the immediate release of six Tunisian fishermen who were arrested by the Italian police on suspicion of enabling the smuggling of migrants.

The men were captured at sea early in September after their trawler released a small vessel it had been towing with 14 migrants onboard, 24 miles (37km) from the coast of the Italian island of Lampedusa.

11. Is Matera’s crumbling beauty ready for its year in Europe’s cultural sun?15:00[−]

Roads and venues remain unbuilt as the southern Italian city struggles to be the 2019 capital of culture

When the southern Italian city of Matera found out it had been selected as the 2019 European capital of culture, its ancient streets echoed with cheers. Thousands gathered in October 2014 to watch the announcement live from Brussels in a central piazza. “It reminded me of the day when Napoli announced it had acquired Diego Maradona,” said Daniele Kihlgren, an Italian-Swedish businessman who has invested in a hotel in Matera. “The same uproar was heard throughout the town.”

But the euphoria was quickly replaced by a sense of anxiety. “After the celebrations,” said Eustachio Nicoletti, Matera’s secretary for Italy’s largest labour union, the CGIL, “people began to wonder, ‘and what the hell are we going to do now?’”

16. 'We stopped these': Roman Quaedvlieg says Scott Morrison gave him boat trophy06:55[−]

Former border force head says he was handed a migrant boat model as a thank-you gift for work on border protection

Scott Morrison gave a model of an asylum-seeker boat emblazoned with the words “We stopped these” to Roman Quaedvlieg as a thank-you gift for his work on the Coalition’s border protection policy, Quaedvlieg has said.

The gift was a replica of one that Morrison said was a gift from a constituent, with the words “I stopped these”, referring to the fishing boats used to transport asylum seekers – mainly via Indonesia – to Australia to seek refuge.

23. 'I follow a different person every day': using strangers to explore the cityПт., 21 сент.[−]

The rules of the art of ‘following’ are simple: choose a stranger and secretly copy their route – you’ll see the city in a new light

Two days after I arrive in Belgrade, I’m being shown the outskirts of the city by a man in pink trousers. I think he must be a local: he knows exactly where he’s going, striding confidently down narrow alleys and across wide roads, showing me parts of the Serbian capital far from the beaten track.

Sometimes I have to break into a little run to keep up. But I don’t get too close, because he doesn’t know he’s acting as my guide to the parts of Belgrade that are off the tourist route – and the last thing I want is for him to find out he’s being followed.

24. 'Imagine in five years': how education became a casualty of Cameroon's warПт., 21 сент.[−]

As schools close their doors amid the ongoing anglophone crisis, families in Cameroon are growing ever more anxious about what the future holds for their children

If Simon had the chance to tell his class about his summer holidays, the seven-year-old Simon would no doubt mention the large tarpaulin sack that for almost four months served as his sleeping bag and his magic carpet.

When the family fled their home in the town of Batibo, in Cameroon’s north west, his mother used grain bags to carry her two youngest children as Simon ran alongside. Later, out in the open jungle, all three children slept inside the bags.

25. What is behind the decline in UFO sightings?Пт., 21 сент.[−]

In an age of wild claims churned out by politicians, media and advertisers, perhaps people don’t care as much any more

This month, the two major online sites for reporting UFOs – the National UFO Reporting Center and the Mutual UFO Network – both documented steep drops in worldwide sightings. The declines started around 2014, when reports were at a peak. They have since reduced drastically to 55% of that year’s combined total, many UFO interest groups have folded, and numerous previously classified government documents have been disclosed.

Do these declines reveal that UFO interest is becoming a blip on the human cultural radar? Perhaps UFO and alien lore is seeming more like a reflection of human culture, tied to the space age, motivated by conquering new existential frontiers.

When residents complained the noise from a pedestrianised street was causing sleeplessness and psychological distress, city authorities reopened it to cars. Was there a better way?

Trying to walking through the pedestrian zone of Sai Yeung Choi Street South, walkers were always shoulder-to-shoulder, bumping into every other passing person. There was simply no way to avoid fellow pedestrians.

Hong Kong’s Mong Kok area – “busy corner” in Cantonese – is a sea of people, shops and chaotic energy in the heart of the city’s most densely populated district.

North Korea offered the concession during a three-day summit in Pyongyang with the South Korean president, Moon Jae-in, and also offered to close its only known nuclear complex if the United States makes its own concessions.

The philanthropist warns that stability in Africa makes a huge difference to the world, and that investing in the health and education of its young people is vital

What worries Bill Gates most? The booming population of Africa looms over his foundation’s latest global survey. By the end of this century there will be 4 billion more people on Earth – and 3 billion of these extra souls will be born in Africa. The challenge, he says, is that “Africa must almost quadruple its agricultural productivity to feed itself. That’s very daunting.”

The philanthropist is torn between sending out a message of hope and a message of fear when I meet him at his foundation’s spacious campus in the heart of his hometown, Seattle.

Improved nutrition and access to water among factors that have added 11 years to average lifespan in a generation

People in sub-Saharan African can expect to live for 11 years longer than the generation that went before them, new statistics show.

Factors including recovery from HIV epidemics, reductions in child mortality, improved nutrition and access to drinking water have driven life expectancy from 49.7 years in 1990 to 60.7 years in 2017. The number of years children typically spend in school has also increased across the region, growing 14% over the past decade.

34. Starvation: a weapon of war that could kill 590,000 children by the end of 2018Пн., 10 сент.[−]

Save the Children says two thirds of infants in conflict zones are not being treated for life-threatening hunger

Starvation being used as a weapon of war has become the new normal, according to Save the Children. Its analysis shows more than half a million infants in conflict zones could die of malnutrition by the end of the year if they do not receive treatment, the equivalent of one every minute.

The charity makes its own estimates using UN data, and projects that 4.5 million under-fives will need treatment for life-threatening hunger this year in the most dangerous conflict zones – an increase of 20% since 2016. At current rates, only one in three will receive treatment, and 590,000 could die as a result.
