Thai boys spend eighth night in flooded cave as weather eases

Thai boys spend eighth night in flooded cave as weather easesTwelve Thai boys and their assistant football coach spent their eighth night trapped in a flooded cave, as a round-the-clock search was aided by better weather on Sunday. Rescue teams attempted to reach deeper into the chambers of Tham Luang cave in the hope of locating the children, aged 11 to 16, and the coach more than a week after they ventured in and were blocked by heavy rains. Despite the tireless effort and international assistance, there has been no contact with the group since they were reported missing, and monsoon rains have complicated the rescue by blocking passageways.

Ambassador to Sudan becomes eighth Russian diplomat to die suddenly in 10 months 

Ambassador to Sudan becomes eighth Russian diplomat to die suddenly in 10 months Russia's ambassador to Sudan has reportedly died of a heart attack, becoming the eighth Russian diplomat to pass away unexpectedly in the past 10 months. Mirgayas Shirinsky, 62, was found dead on Wednesday at his Khartoum residence.  Maria Zakharova, Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman, told journalists on Thursday that the ambassador had been “found with signs of an acute heart attack”. “Embassy employees called a doctor, but unfortunately he was unable to save (Mr) Shirinsky,” she said. Police told AFP he had “died while he was swimming in his pool at his house” but that an initial investigation had ruled out foul play. Mr Shirinsky is at least the eighth foreign ministry official to die since late last year.  Mirgayas Shirinsky died while he was swimming in his pool at his house Credit: EPA The spate of deaths began on the day Donald Trump was elected US president in November, when Sergei Krivov, duty commander of the Russian consulate in New York, was found dead with a head wound at the facility, police said. Initial reports said he had fallen to his death from the roof, but consulate officials said he had a heart attack and hit his head. The New York city medical examiner later contradicted these explanations, saying he died of internal bleeding related to a tumour. Andrei Karlov, ambassador to Turkey, was shot in the back during his speech at an Ankara art gallery in December by a police officer yelling “Don't forget Syria”.  Vitaly Churkin, ambassador to the United Nations, died at work in Februarythe day before his 65th birthday, reportedly of a heart attack. More than 10,000 people work at the Russian foreign ministry in Moscow and abroad, and five of the men were in their sixties, old by Russian standards.  Alexander Kadakin, ambassador to India, was 67 when he died in a hospital in January, one year over the average life expectancy for Russian males. But the recent deaths, at least three of which occurred in unclear circumstances, have raised eyebrows, especially since high-profile Russians have been killed abroad before.  A UK inquiry found in 2016 that spy-turned-MI6-informant Alexander Litvinenko had been poisoned by two Russians acting on the Kremlin's orders.  In addition, some US intelligence and law enforcement officials reportedly now believe Mikhail Lesin, former communications minister and aide to Vladimir Putin, was murdered on the eve of an interview with the department of justice in 2015.

Philippines urges Islamist rebels to surrender as battle enters eighth dayBy Tom Allard MARAWI, Philippines (Reuters) – The Philippine military urged Islamist militants occupying a southern city to turn themselves in on Tuesday, the eighth day of a push by security forces using armored vehicles and firing rockets from helicopters to eliminate the gunmen. The government says it is close to retaking Marawi from the Islamic State-linked Maute group, which seized parts of the city after a failed attempt by security forces to capture Isnilon Hapilon, the militants’ so-called emir of Southeast Asia. Graphic on battle for Marawi: tmsnrt.rs/2qBkSPk “We call on the remaining terrorists to surrender while there is an opportunity,” a military spokesman, Brigadier-General Restituto Padilla, told reporters.
