Also, Saudi Arabia urges respect for Islamic law after Western singers perform in Jeddah, and how a man in Assam found a tiger resting on his bed.
A majority of 41 MPs approved the amendment to block the suspension of Parliament. The move is to prevent the future Prime Minister forcing through a no-deal Brexit.

Police say a 41-year-old suspect broke into the building and sprayed petrol before igniting it.Also, new warnings to the UK about potential dangers posed by a 'no deal' Brexit, and how a South African taxi-driver revealed his talent as an opera-singer.
He is a former head of the Sinaloa cartel, which officials say was the biggest supplier of drugs to the US. The World Health Organization has declared the Ebola crisis in eastern Congo a public health emergency, and the dragon with a lethal bite that tourists can’t stay away from.
Ruling military council and opposition leaders have signed a power-sharing accord. Sudan has been in chaos since the military ousted President Omar al-Bashir in April.Also, a surprise as Turkish court acquits two journalists and a human rights activist of terrorism charges, and Andrea Camilleri - author of the "Inspector Montalbano" stories - has died aged 93.
Fifty years since launch of Apollo Eleven mission - those involved remember; European Parliament narrowly approves next European Commission President; Dozens killed in monsoon flooding in South Asia - millions are displaced.
Mrs von der Leyen said dealing with climate change and tackling illegal immigration humanely would be her priorities.

Monty Mann racism is not a "card," it is when we perceive a human being first in terms of a (negative) racial/ethnic stereotype and then either discount them based on this perception or expect the person to disprove this stereotype, which should not be their burdan.

Rana Ayub is anything but journalist. She is jihadi apologist and clearly Anti Hindu. Opinions of Rana Ayub and likes of her mean nothing for new India and election's result shows it. Let her cry for 10 more years cause Modi Ji will win 2024 election too 🤘🚩
