  • Petya is spreading along the world

    AlvaroMolina: Fix Template


    {{Mergeto|The Petya computer virus attacks companies around the world}}
    {{Science and technology}}
    The rasomware {{w|Petya}} is attacking servers accross the world. It first appeared in [[Ukraine]] today June 27, 2017, leaving banks unable to operate because its servers are affected and also power grids and government offices of this country. The Petya virus is travelling across Europe, specially {{w|Western Europe}} where websites in [[United Kingdom|Great Britain]] are affected. The servers of [[Denmark|Danish]] company Maersk are offline due to the attack. On the other side of the [[Atlantic Ocean]], the ramsomware has appeared in [[Argentina]] and the [[United States]].

    Petya is a {{w|rasomware}} variant of {{w|Wannacry}}, which atacked servers last month. It uses the ETERNALBLUE networking exploit developed by the United States {{w|National Security Agency}} to spread along an organization's internal network and it encrypts all data stored in the computer. Only the developer of the malicious program may decipher it, usually upon payment of monetary ransom from the affected company, generally in {{w|Bitcoin}}s.

    Today, new {{w|ransomware}} appeared in [[Ukraine]], leaving banks unable to operate because their servers were affected. The virus also affected power grids and government offices of this country. Called 'the Petya virus' according of several sources, it was travelling across Europe, specially {{w|Western Europe}}, affecting the operation of websites in [[United Kingdom|Great Britain]]. On the other side of the [[Atlantic Ocean]], the ransomware has appeared in [[Argentina]] and the [[United States]].<!-- The Guardian, El Mundo (Spain), Diario Ámbito Financiero -->

    Though many experts believed this to be a new variant of Petya, analysts at {{w|Kaspersky Lab}} claimed it was a completely new sort of ransomware which they've named "NotPetya". Petya is a ransomware variant of {{w|WannaCry}}, which attacked servers last month. It used the ETERNALBLUE networking exploit developed by the United States {{w|National Security Agency}} to spread along an organization's internal network. It encrypted all data stored in the computer. Only the developer of the malicious program would be able to decipher it, usually upon payment of monetary ransom from the affected company in {{w|Bitcoin}}s.<!-- CBS News -->

    Petya entered computers through emails that seemed harmless but contained links to {{w|Dropbox}} that target infected files. The virus also spread when the users were browsing unknown or dubious content web pages. Once inside the computer the virus began to spread through the internal network of the company, looking for other unprotected equipment to infect. The virus appeared in the market in 2016, but a simple change in its encryption was enough for it to avoid detection by an antivirus.<!-- Spanish Sources -->

    Ukrainian banks could not function normally and people could not use credit cards to pay for Kiev subway services, as the payment servers were affected by the virus.<!-- CBS News - Telegraph -->

  • Curaçao wins the Caribbean Cup

    Numbermaniac: here too


    {{date|June 28, 2017}}{{football}}
    On Sunday, [[Curaçao]]'s [[soccer|football]] team won their first {{w|Caribbean Cup}} defeating the defending champions [[Jamaica]] 2&ndash;1.

    {{w|Elson Hooi}} opened the scoring for Curaçao in the tenth minute. The defending champions were trailing the team ranked 70th in the [[FIFA]] ranking. {{w|Rosario Harriott}} scored an equaliser for the Jamaicans after a free-kick in the 82nd minute of the game. But within two minutes, Hooi, who previously played for {{w|Netherlands|Dutch}} football clubs {{w|NAC Breda}} and {{w|FC Volendam}}, netted another goal, restoring Curaçao's lead. The match ended 2&ndash;1.

    In 2013's competition, Curaçao did not manage to win a single game. Before Sunday's final, Curaçao's goalkeeper said, "Being in the final is a wonderful feeling". He added, "But I must say, Jamaica is a dangerous team. They have no {{w|Europe|European}} players in their team and they are still in the final. They have speed, unity and physical players. So, on Sunday, we need to work hard for our victory." He won the 2016&ndash;17 {{w|KNVB Cup}} with Dutch {{w|Eredivisie}} (Dutch league) club {{w|SBV Vitesse}}.

    Curaçao defeated hosts [[Martinique]] 2&ndash;1 in the semi-final. In the third-place decider, {{w|French Guiana}} defeated Martinique 1&ndash;0. {{w|Sloan Privat}} scored the only goal of the match in the 74th minute. Curaçao, Martinique, French Guiana, and Jamaica are to play in the {{w|CONCACAF Gold Cup}} which is scheduled to be played next month in the [[United States]]. Curaçao has never featured in a Gold Cup tournament.

    Curaçao's starting lineup consisted of {{w|Rangelo Janga}}, {{w|Jarchinio Antonia}}, Elson Hooi, {{w|Gevaro Nepomuceno}}, {{w|Dustley Mulder}}, {{w|Leandro Bacuna}}, {{w|Gillian Justiana}}, {{w|Darryl Lachman}}, {{w|Quentin Jakoba}}, and {{w|Cuco Martina}}, with {{w|Eloy Room}} guarding the nets.

The identity of the corpse is still unknown even to the residents, the residents said that the body was found early in the morning, right there on the street lifeless and still fresh.

    The residents suggested that she might have visited the hotel that was only few meters away from her corpse, the hotel was said to be a place where hookers hang for the weekend and the lady might just be one of them. The identity of the body is still unknown and investigation is still going on.

  • Police stops LGBT march in Istanbul for third consecutive year

    AlvaroMolina: Addition of Interwiki (+es)


    {{Date|June 28, 2017}}
    {{LGBT}}
    <!-- How about "Police stops LGBT march in Istanbul; rally cancelled for third consecutive year"? -->
    On Sunday, police stopped {{w|Istanbul Pride}}, a yearly [[LGBT]] march in [[Turkey]]'s largest city, [[Istanbul]]. Police officials reportedly used rubber and plastic bullets and sprayed tear gas to prevent the participants from parading, after the Istanbul Governor's office ordered them on Saturday not to conduct the march, asserting security reasons. This marks the third consecutive year activists were banned from holding the rally.
    [[File:XXI. Istanbul Gay Parade Pride - Peace Tower.jpg|left|thumb|260px|File photo of 2013's Istanbul Pride.{{image|[[Commons:User:Lubunya|Lubunya]]}}]]
    The statement released by the governor's office read, "no application that suits the methods was made to our governor's office", though the organisers of the march disagreed. Homosexuality has been legal in Turkey for almost a century, but the governor's office reported "serious reactions against the march." Activists found checkpoints and a large number of police near {{w|Istiklal Avenue}}.

    The pride organisers reported 41 were arrested by the police. Far-right {{w|Alperen Ocakları|Alperen Hearths}} was amongst nationalist groups calling for prohibiting the parade. Last week, on June 19, Kürşat Mican of Alperen said, "We will not allow them to walk. Wherever they march, we'll also go. We will close down that street and they will not be able to go there. If we want, our numbers can reach 200,000".

    In a statement by the organisers of the rally, on Sunday, they said, "Our security will be provided by recognising us in the constitution, by securing justice, by equality and freedom". Turkish legislators have yet to enact laws shielding the LGBT community from hate speech and ensuring civil rights. In 2010, {{w|Selma Aliye Kavaf}}, then-Minister of Women and Family Affairs said, {{translated quote|tr|Turkish language|Ben eşcinselliğin biyolojik bir bozukluk, bir hastalık olduğuna inanıyorum. Tedavi edilmesi gereken bir şey bence.|I believe homosexuality is a biological disorder and this disease needs treatment.}} After the unsuccessful attempt to conduct the parade, organisers released a statement on Sunday, saying, "We are not scared, we are here, we will not change[...] You are scared, you will change and you will get used to it."

    Istanbul Pride was first organised in 2003, attracting by varying reports from tens of thousands to possibly a hundred thousand people in 2014. That was the last actual march before it was blocked three times in the last three years. Last year, the organisers were not granted permission for Istanbul Pride after Istanbul faced militant attacks. The 2015 march was stopped as it was about to start, and police used water canons and tear gas to disperse the protesters.

  • U.S. Senate Republicans unveil their replacement for Obamacare

    Darkfrog24:


    {{review}}
    {{United States}}
    {{date|June 25, 2017}} <!-- substitutes the date automatically; you don't need to modify the template -->

    Tuesday, [[United States]] [[US Senate|Senate]] Majority Leader {{w|Mitch McConnel}} decided to delay a vote on whether to pass the Senate's recently revealed {{w|Better Care Reconciliation}} (BCRA). If successful, this would repeal and replace the {{w|Affordable Care Act}}, [[Barack Obama|Obama]]-era legislation that established the health care exchange system commonly called {{w|Obamacare}}.The Senate will vote on BCRA some time after the {{w|Independence Day (United States)|Independence Day}} celebrations on July 4.<!--NYTimes-->

    "We will not be on the bill this week, but we're still working toward getting at least 50 people in a comfortable place," McConnel told the press. McConnel can afford to lose no more than two votes, which will mean not only wooing Senate [[US Democratic Party|Democrats]] and independents but also retaining the support of his own party.

    Several Senate [[Republican party (United States)|Republicans]] have said they do not intend to support the bill,<!--WPost-->, though not all of them gave the same reasons. Senator {{w|Susan Collins}} of [[Maine]], expressed concern for the effect BCRA would have on rural hospitals in her state.<!--WPost--> "It's difficult for me to see how any tinkering is going to satisfy my fundamental and deep concerns about the impact of the bill," she later told the press.<!--NYTimes-->

    According to Senate Democrat Richard Durbin, report issued Monday by the {{w|Congressional Budget Office}} "did more to strike a dagger to the heart of this Republican repeal than anything else."<!--NYTimes--> This report compared the national health care plan proposed in the Better Care Reconciliation Act to the country's current system and estimating its effects over the next ten years. They predicted about 22 million more Americans would become uninsured by 2026, mostly poorer individuals and users of the country's {{w|Medicaid}} program, as opposed to 1 million if the Affordable Care Act were left in place<!--CNN-->. It would also cut the federal government's expenditures by [[United States dollar|US$]]321 billion.<!--WPost-->

    The CBO report says the BCRA would remove many of the taxes on the wealthy established to pay for Obamacare and drastically cut Medicaid spending. Although premiums would eventually decrease, overall out-of-pocket spending on health care would go up, with poorer individuals and people between the ages of 50 and 64 seeing the most pronounced change. States would be allowed to charge older people up to five times as much as younger people, as opposed to three times under Obamacare rules. Coverage for maternity and mental health care could become especially expensive. The BRCA would also eliminate all federal funding for [[Planned Parenthood]] for one year.<!--USA Today--> Planned Parenthood has been {{w|Hyde Amendment|prohibited from using federal money}} to provide [[abortion]]s since the late 1970s, with some exceptions for rape and incest, but it is currently allowed to use its roughly $500 million in U.S. government funds for other services, such as cancer screening and contraception.<!--NPR PP-->

    The [[White House]] issued an official statement questioning the accuracy of the report. "The CBO has consistently proven it cannot accurately predict how healthcare legislation will impact insurance coverage. This history of inaccuracy, as demonstrated by its flawed report on coverage, premiums, and predicted deficit arising out of Obamacare, reminds us that its analysis must not be trusted blindly."<!--Business Insider--> The statement went on to point out that the CBO had predicted that Obamacare would cover 24 million people by 2016, when in fact it came to under 11 million.<!--Business Insider-->

    The report also indicates that while many people would lose their insurance under BCRA, this is still roughly one million fewer than under its counterpart from the [[US House of Representatives|House of Representatives]], the {{w|American Health Care Act}}, and while the House bill saves only $119 billion dollars, the Senate bill saves over $200 billion more.<!--WPost--> Both laws would reverse the Affordable Care Act's requirement that all U.S. residents carry insurance or pay a fine, though they do still contain some incentives.<!--WPost-->

  • Judge declares mistrial for officer who shot Samuel DuBose

    Numbermaniac: fix typo that was undone earlier


    {{crime and law}}
    {{date|June 24, 2017}} <!-- substitutes the date automatically; you don't need to modify the template -->

    Yesterday<!--On Friday-->, Judge Leslie Ghiz declared a mistrial in the case of {{w|University of Cincinnati}} police officer Ray Tensing, who was on trial for the fatal shooting of Samuel DuBose during a traffic stop in 2015. Tensing is white and DuBose was black. The trial took place in [[Cincinnati]], [[Ohio]]. This is the second mistrial of Tensing for this crime.

    The jurors told the judge they were "almost evenly split" after deliberating for 31 hours. Tensing was charged with murder and {{w|voluntary manslaughter}}.<!--WLWT--> Nine of the jurors were white, and three were black.<!--NBC-->

    A crowd of protesters gathered outside the courthouse. One, Charles Campbell, said, "This is a miscarriage of justice, this is unacceptable[...] We cannot allow this in our city. We cannot allow this in our country. I'm here to share solidarity with the family of Sam DuBose, and the family of all these people who are being gunned down by police officers with impunity." De Bose's family has requested that all protests remain peaceful.<!--WLWT-->

    Tensing did not deny fatally shooting DuBose, instead arguing he feared for his life during their encounter. Tensing was wearing a body camera when he pulled DuBose over for the lack of a front license plate on his vehicle.<!--NYTimes--> DuBose stopped the car but did not show Tensing his license and registration when asked. Tensing told DuBose to step out of the car, and DuBose refused and began to drive away while Tensing's hand was still inside the vehicle. The images from his camera grow shaky and difficult to parse at around that point. Tensing called out "Stop! Stop!" and then shot DuBose in the head.<!--NBC,NYTimes--> The entire incident took under two minutes. Two other officers, also present, also recorded the incident.<!--NBC--> At the time, Tensing was 25 and DuBose 43. The University of Cincinnati agreed to pay over [[US$]]4 million to DuBose's family, and educate DuBose's 12 children.

    Tensing is the third [[US]] police officer in roughly a week to be tried but not convicted for shooting a black man<!--NYTimes-->, though his is the only case to end in a mistrial. Jeronimo Yanaz was acquitted for killing {{w|Philando Castile}} and Dominique Heaggan-Brown for killing {{w|Sylville K. Smith}}.

    On Friday 23rd June 2017 a video was posted to Youtube under the title: '''''19.15.21.12 - 9.19 - 18.15.20.20.9.14.7'''''

    The title translates to "Soul - Is - Rotting" if you take the numbers showcased in the title for their alpha-numeric position. For example, 1=A 2=B 3=C etc.

    The video also has a description entirely made of binary figures. The Binary numbers also translate to "Soul Is Rotting"

    The video depicts close up and heavily distorted imagery of a Soviet Russian Gas Mask, A vintage image of Medusa's head after her beheading, a selection of assorted workman tools, a can of lighter fluid and a hair tie.

    Nobody as of today has found any meaning behind the video but if you have any information relating to the short video please update this article.

  • Finsbury Park: Van rams into pedestrians near a mosque, kills one and injuries ten

    {{Crime and law}}
    On early hours of Sunday, local time, a speeding van hit the pedestrians near a mosque in {{w|Finsbury Park}}, [[London]]. One was killed, ten injured and two were in critical condition, all of them were [[Muslims]]. Eight were hospitalised, police said.

    Hundreds of Muslims were​ on the Seven Sisters Road, coming after late night prayers as their Holy month [[Ramzan]] is about to end. The 48-year-old suspect, Darren Osborne, who, according to the officials, acted alone, was arrested for murder charges. Osborne was also taken to the hospital. The case is to be handled by [[UK]]'s Counter Terrorism command.

    "A van speeding very fast came towards us. We thought he was late for work or trying to catch the traffic light before it turned red. Suddenly, he turned towards pedestrians. His first casualty was a woman and three guys. Then he reversed and carried on. And he hit another five people.", eyewitness Saeed Hashi told Al Jazeera.

    The driver was taken out of the vehicle and held by the civilians till the police came. The police was notified at about 12:20 AM ({{w|British Summer Time|BST}}) (UTC+1). According to Muslim's Welfare House's leader Tawfiq al-Qasimi, the mob started beating the driver, but Imam Mohamed Mahmoud protected the driver till the officers came. He said, "People started hitting him [driver] hard and Mohamed took so many punches because he was protecting the guy until the police arrived".

    Many eyewitnesses reported Osborne was shouting "I want to kill Muslims". Muslim Council of Britain requested for more security after the incident.

    In the last two months, there had been many attacks and accidents in the UK including Manchester Arena bombing, Westminster and London Bridge attack and the Grenfell Tower caught in the inferno.

  • Rural India focused two wheeler, the Honda Cliq launched

    Acagastya: Undo revision 4326616 by Alishahessle (talk) the concerns raised by the reviewer in the last review were not addressed. Fix them before resubmitting


    {{tasks|news|npov|re-review}}{{date|June 21, 2017}}
    {{India}}In past few years, the focus of automakers has largely shifted from the Urban markets of India to the rural market. [[w:Honda|Honda]] understands this opportunity, and thus, in a bid to capture the rural two-wheeler market, has launched its new automatic scooter, the Honda Cliq. The Cliq, which primarily caters the needs of the rural India, was launched in an event held in Jaipur on June 20th, 2017.

    The Honda cliq [[w:Scooter_(motorcycle)|two-wheeler]] packs several modern features like self-start, mechanical combi brakes which work simultaneously on the front and the rear wheels, under seat mobile charging socket, auto headlamps, and maintenance free battery. In addition, the two-wheeler gets certain discretionary enhancements like the floor cover, front screen, box center, cap cover, and rear grip.

    The two-wheeler gets an air cooled 109.19cc engine which can churn up a maximum power of 8bhp at 7000rpm and a peak torques of 8.94Nm at 5,500rpm. According, the company claims that the scooter can notch a top speed of 83 Km/h. In addition, the two-wheeler gets a fuel tank.of 3.5litre.

    Although the two-wheeler has a mechanical setup which is quite similar to the [[w:Honda_Activa|Honda Activa]] and Honda Nova in terms of the engine incorporated in the scooter, it has an added telescopic front fork which is not present in Honda Activa and Honda Nova. The two-Wheeler is equipped with a spring led Hydraulic suspensions at both ends.

    The colour options for this two-wheeler include - Moroccan Blue with White, patriotic Red with White, Black and Orcus Grey.

    Initially, the scooter will be available in [[Rajasthan]] only followed by other parts of the country. The Honda Cliq comes in two variants. The standard variant is priced at Rs. 42,990 (ex-showroom, Jaipur), while the Deluxe variant will be available at Rs.43,490 (ex-showroom, Jaipur).

    On Tuesday, [[U.S. Republican party|Republican]] {{w|Karen Handel}} defeated [[U.S. Democratic party|Democrat]] {{w|Jon Ossoff}} in a {{w|runoff election}} for [[Georgia (U.S. state)|Georgia's]] {{w|Georgia's 6th congressional district|sixth congressional district}} seat in the [[United States House of Representatives]] by about 13,000 votes, roughly 53% to 47%.<!--NBC--> The two candidates together had spent more money on this campaign than on any other House contest in [[U.S.]] history<!--Guardian June-->, over [[US$]]50 million.<!--CNN I-->

    The congressional seat was left vacant when its previous congressman, {{w|Tom Price}}, accepted an offer to serve in President [[Donald Trump]]'s cabinet. The sixth district is considered heavily Republican and has not been held by a Democrat since the 1970s. Despite this, 30-year-old Ossoff nearly won the initial election in April, with 48.1% of the vote. At that time, among several Republican candidates, Handel came away with 19.8% of the vote.<!--CNN April-->

    Some, including Ossoff himself, characterized this election a chance for voters to indicate whether they truly approve or disapprove of the Trump presidency, saying that the election could "send a message that will be heard across the country and around the world."<!--NBC--> After the election, he conceded, saying, "As darkness has crept across this planet, [Ossoff supporters] have provided a beacon of hope for people here in Georgia and people around the world[.] We showed the world that in places where no one thought it was even possible to fight, we could fight."<!--NBC-->

    Both candidates received death threats during the campaign and spoke with the press about violence in U.S. politics. In remarks to ''[[The Guardian]]'', Handel said, "The lack of civility in society as a whole, some of it, I believe, is very much fueled by social media and frankly, it's fueled by the fact that journalism is not journalism any more. It's tabloid. [...] The anger has been from the left with groups of trackers showing up and literally adopting a gang-like posture and virtually stalking individuals."<!--Guardian-->

    Ossoff commented as well: "This is a deep-rooted problem in American politics right now which is going to take work and bipartisan commitment to try to heal wounds and focus on substance instead of fear-mongering and slander." He specifically objected to an ad that he said politicized the {{w|foreign=suppress|2017 Congressional baseball shooting|recent shooting}} of Republican Representative {{w|Stephen Scalise}} by saying that violent leftists were voting for Ossoff.<!--Guardian-->

    Over 140,000 people, an extraordinarily high number for a special election in the area, voted early.

  • South Korea and Stielike part ways

    Pi zero: /* Sources */ tweak


    {{date|June 18, 2017}}
    {{Football}}
    On Thursday, [[South Korea]]'s​ [[football (soccer)|Football]] Association <!--(KFA)--> sacked {{w|Uli Stielike}} as the head coach. Stielike's last match as South Korea's head coach ended in a 3&ndash;2 defeat against [[Qatar]] in a [[FIFA]] World Cup qualifier.
    [[File:Uli Stielike in press conference before Iran match 2.jpg|left|thumb|File photo of Stielike {{image|Mohammad Ali Marizad}}]]
    63-year-old Stielike was in charge of the Korean team since September 2014 succeeding {{w|Hong Myung-bo}}. Stielike led the Korean team to the final of the {{w|Asian Cup}} in 2015 without conceding a goal, but lost to [[Australia]] in the extra time of the final.

    In the group A of Asian countries for the next year's World Cup qualification, South Korea is second in the table after already-qualified [[Iran]], who has 20 points &mdash; seven more than Korea. Korea is to face Iran on August 31, and [[Uzbekistan]] on September 5.

    Tuesday's defeat against Qatar was Korea's third defeat in their last five games. In the eight qualification games, Korea won four and drew one game. A second-place finish would earn the Korean team automatic qualification, but faces potential competition with third place Uzbekistan, who is trailing by only one point.

  • Helmul Kohl, Chancellor of Germany, died last Friday 16

    Ezarate: fix


    {{tasks|news|re-review}}{{Obituaries}}
    {{Date|June 18, 2017}}
    [[File:Helmut Kohl 1989.jpg|thumb|left|Kohl in 1989 {{Image|[http://www.kas.de/ Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung]}}]]
    {{w|Helmut Kohl}}, who served as {{w|Chancellor of Germany|German chancellor}} from 1982 to 1988, died on Friday in his home town of {{w|Oggersheim}}, near Ludwigshafen at the age of 87. He is well known for his role in reunifying Germany after 45 years of {{w|Cold War}}.

    Kohl was born on April 3, 1930 in {{w|Ludwigshafen}}, [[Germany]]. He was the youngest of three children of Cäcilie E. and Hans Kohl. His father, Hans Kohl was a civil servant, tax expert and served as a soldier in the [[World War I]].

    Kohl served as the Chancellor of West Germany from 1982 to 1990 and of the reunified Germany from 1990 to 1998. He was also the chairman of the {{W|Christian Democratic Union of Germany|Christian Democratic Union}} from 1973 to 1988 and was {{w|List of Ministers-President of Rhineland-Palatinate|Minister-President}} of {{w|Rhineland-Palatinate}}.

    [[Margaret Thatcher]], [[Ronald Reagan]] and Helmut Kohl were conservartive politicians opposed to the [[Soviet Union]]. They participated, practically and ideologically, in the fall of {{w|Berlin Wall}} in 1989, and consequently in the end of the Cold War in Europe which started in 1945. Kohl wrote a ten-point plan for "Overcoming the Division of Germany and Europe", ignoring the [[United States]], the [[United Kingdom]], and [[France]], the main western wartime powers.
    <!--
    Kohl was a tall man 6 feet 4 inches, and weighed over 300 pounds in the years of leadership. He was not seriously himself; he admitted that the sudden {{w|Dissolution of the Soviet Union|Soviet dissolution}} was a surprise for him. -->

    Kohl was married twice. His first wife Hannelore Khole suffered from a rare allergy to light who had only night social activities. She commited suicide in 2001 due to a scandal involving Kohl. In 2008, he married Maike Richter, his former economic adviser in the chancellery, whom was 35 years younger than Kohl.

    Kohl was involved in a scandal over CDU party financing using secret bank accounts. He hid illegal money donations to his party. Mr Kohl never revealed the names of the donors, even after a parlament inquiry in progress. He paid a fine of {{w|US$}}100,000 for the criminal case against him. In 2002, he retired from public life .

    Several politicians gave their condolences, including current German chancellor [[Angela Merkel]]: "It will take some time before we realize what we have truly lost."

    Despite Kohl doesn't want a state funeral the European Union is preparing a special state funeral, {{w|Jean-Claude Juncker}} push for a "European act of state" for Kohl but he didn't give more details. In an interview given to Sunday's Bild am Sonntag newspaper said that the existence of euro is thanks to Kohl, and also said "us Europeans to get to know each other better and work more closely together.". The funeral will be two weaks ago on European Parliament on {{w|Strasbourg}}, France, next the funeral mass will be in {{w|Speyer cathedral}}, {{w|Germany}}. The travel of the Kohl's coffin between two places will be along Rhine river. Finally, using the Rhine river, the cofin will travel since Cologne catherdral to a cemetery in {{w|Rhöndorf}}.

  • Amazon, Inc. to acquire Whole Foods at US$43 per share

    Numbermaniac: typo fix


    {{date|June 17, 2017}}
    {{Economy and business}}
    Yesterday<!--On Friday-->, e-commerce giant [[Amazon.com]] announced they are to acquire [[Texas]] based retail grocery store chain {{w|Whole Foods Market}} at [[US$]]42 per share. According to the deal worth US$13.7 billion ({{w|pound sterling|£}}10.7 billion) the retail grocery store chain is to keep the Whole Foods Market brand name and {{w|John Macey (businessman)|John Mackey}} is reportedly to remain its CEO.

    After the announcement, Amazon's shares went up more than two percent and Whole Foods Market shares went up by about 28%. Shares of other grocery-selling chains like {{w|Kroger}}, {{w|Target Corporation|Target}}, {{w|Sprouts Farmers}} and {{w|Costco}} experienced a dip after the announcement.

    Amazon runs their own online grocery &mdash; {{w|Amazon Fresh}} &mdash; which started a decade ago in [[Seattle, Washington|Seattle]], [[Washington]]. Amazon's​ CEO {{w|Jeff Bezos}} said, "Millions of people love Whole Foods Market because they offer the best natural and organic foods, and they make it fun to eat healthy."

    Whole Foods Market started in 1978, and employs about 87000 people in its roughly 460 stores across the [[US]], UK and [[Canada]]. The deal is expected to cover debts of Whole Foods Market.

    Whole Foods Market CEO Mackey said, "This partnership presents an opportunity to maximize value for Whole Foods Market's shareholders, while at the same time extending our mission and bringing the highest quality, experience, convenience and innovation to our customers."

    The acquisition, which has not yet received approval from the shareholders of Whole Foods Market, adds a 27% premium to Thursday's closing value of its stock. This would be Amazon's largest acquisition if the deal is done.

    On Wednesday, at least six people &mdash; [[United States]] [[US House of Representatives|House]] {{w|Majority Whip}} {{w|Steve Scalise}}, Representative Roger Williams, congressional staffer Zach Barth, lobbyist Matt Mike, and two Capitol police officers, Crystal Griner and special agent {{w|David Bailey}}, were hospitalized after shots were fired on a ball field in [[Alexandria, Virginia|Alexandria]], [[Virginia]] during practice for a charity [[baseball]] game.<!--LATimes--> The alleged perpetrator, a 66-year-old [[Illinois]] man, was shot by police and later died in a hospital.<!--NPR-->

    [[File:Eyewitness Account- Senator Jeff Flake on Congressional Shooting.webm|thumb|left|Senator {{w|Jeff Flake}} recounts the incident. {{image|media=video|[[VOA]]}}]]
    According to [[Alabama]] Congressman {{w|Mo Brooks}}, the shooter was in the {{w|dugout (baseball)|dugout}} behind third base. Team members saw Scalise crawl away from second base after he was shot. According to Senator {{W|Jeff Flake}}, Scalise's security team fired upon the shooter. Flake and Congressman {{w|Brad Wenstrup}}, a physician, went to Scalise and attempted to staunch the bleeding until help could arrive. Scalise was still in critical condition yesterday, who was admitted to MedStar Washington Hospital Center, though some of the other injured had been released.<!--CNN-->

    "Nobody would have survived without the Capitol Hill police," [[Kentucky]] Senator {{w|Rand Paul}} told [[CNN]]. "It would have been a massacre without them." <!--CNN-->

    The U.S. [[Federal Bureau of Investigation]] identified the shooter as {{W|James T. Hodgkinson}} of {{w|Belleville, Illinois|Belleville}}, Illinois. Hodgkinson, who worked as a home inspector until earlier this year, had made posts on the Internet condemning the [[Republican party (United States)|Republican]] tax plan, attended at least one {{w|Occupy movement|99% rally}} in 2012. He had campaigned for [[Democratic Party (United States)|Democrat]] [[Bernie Sanders]] in last year's [[2016 US presidential election|U.S. presidential race]], Sanders said; Sanders condemned Hodgkinson's actions, saying he was "sickened by this despicable act."<!--NPR-->

    A 7.62 mm SKS rifle and a nine mm pistol were obtained from the scene. According​ to the FBI, the shooter acquired the arms legally.<!--WPost-->

    Hodgkinson has written many letters to a local newspaper ''News-Democrat'' with comments such as "This country is in need of a major change in more ways than one, but let's start with the federal income tax rates" in 2008 and "We need to vote all Republicans out of office" in 2011.<!--NPR--> The day before the shooting, Hodgkinson had had a brief but intense in-person outburst in which he said that [[Donald Trump|President Trump]] messed up the U.S. "more than anyone in the history of this country."<!--WPost-->

    In 2006, Hodgkinson was arrested after allegedly punching a woman in the face and attempting to choke someone. He also fired a shotgun as part of that incident. The charges were later dismissed. <!-- NPR source; hit CTRL-F "shotgun" and see next sentence --> In March, police responded to reports of a gunshot at Hodgkinson's home and found him holding a hunting rifle. After ascertaining that he had a license for said firearm, they left him with a warning.<!--NPR-->

    Scalise, a Congressperson from [[Louisiana]] is the third-highest ranking [[Republican party (United States)|Republican]] in the [[US Congress|U.S. Congress]].

    The {{w|Congressional Baseball Game}}, played between Democrats and Republicans, is a tradition for the U.S. Congress. It was played yesterday evening as scheduled, and both teams wore hats from [[Louisiana State University]] to honor Scalise. The event raised more than [[USD|US$]]1 million for Congressional Sports for Charity. It is about twice the previous year's figure, spokeswoman Meredith Raimondi said. The Democrats won the game, and the ball used in the game was presented to officer David Bailey, who had been released from the hospital after being injured by the shooter.<!--CNN HerbLo-->

    {{date|June 15, 2017}}
    {{Infobox|FC Bayern München}}
    Yesterday<!-- On Wednesday -->, [[Germany|German]] [[football (soccer)|football]] club [[FC Bayern Munich]] announced signing of {{w|Corentin Tolisso}} from {{w|Olympique Lyonnais}}. The 22-year-old [[France|French]] international midfielder has signed a five-year contract.

    Tolisso joined Lyon's academy when he was 13-years-old and made 160 appearance for the club in all competitions scoring 29 goals.

    Via their official website, Lyon announced that the clubs agreed to a fee of [[euro|€]]41.5 million (£35 million) for Tolisso's transfer. Per the agreement, Lyon may receive a bonus up to €6 million depending on the Tolisso's performance. This was the highest transfer money Lyon has received till now, the French club said.

    Lyon club president {{w|Jean-Michel Aulas}} said Tolisso's departure was an {{translated quote|fr|French language|une perte affective et qualitative|emotional and qualitative loss}} for the club and described him as {{translated quote|fr|French language|un joueur exceptionnel, sans doute un des meilleurs européens à son poste mais aussi un homme à forte personnalité.|an exceptional player, undoubtedly one of the best European in his position but also a man with a strong personality.}} He added further {{translated quote|fr|French language|c’est également une fierté de voir un joueur formé par l’Academy OL rejoindre l’un des meilleurs clubs d’Europe|It is also a pride to see a player trained by the Lyon Academy join one of the best clubs in [[Europe]]}}.

    Bayern's chairman {{w|Karl-Heinz Rummenigge}} reserved similar praise for Tolisso, saying, "We're really pleased we've been able to sign such a young and interesting player ahead of stiff competition from abroad. Corentin Tolisso was {{w|Carlo Ancelotti}}'s wish for our midfield."

    Previously, Bayern had announced signing {{w|Serge Gnabry}}, {{w|Sebastien Rudy}} and {{w|Niklas Süle}}.

  • U.S. President Trump under investigation for obstruction of justice in Russia inquiry

    Darkfrog24: let's see if there's any way to freshen this; after this much time no sense giving it to a reviewer


    {{develop}}
    {{United States}}
    {{date|June 21, 2017}}

    On Sunday morning, {{w|Jay Sekulow}}, one of [[United States]] President [[Donald Trump]]'s personal lawyers, told the press Trump was not being investigated for obstruction of justice connected to the [[Federal Bureau of Investigation]] (FBI) inquiry into [[Russian involvement in the 2016 US presidential election|Russian involvement in the 2016 U.S. presidential election]], run by special counsel {{w|Robert S. Mueller}}. This drew confusion from many quarters because President Trump had himself referred to the investigation via [[Twitter|Tweet]] the previous Thursday and Friday.<!--Washington Post Monday-->

    "I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt" Trump posted early Friday morning<!--NBC News-->, possibly referring to Deputy Attorney General {{w|Rod Rosenstein}}, who wrote a memorandum recommending the firing of then-Director of the FBI [[James Comey]]. While Rosenstein did recommend a special counsel be appointed to head the investigation, the special counsel is Robert Mueller, not Rosenstein himself.<!--CNN-->
    {{QuoteLeft|Let me be very clear here, as it has been since the beginning, the president is not and has not been under investigation for obstruction.|source=President Trump's lawyer, Jay Sekulow}}
    The message that came from Sekulow on Sunday was different. "Let me be very clear here, as it has been since the beginning, the president is not and has not been under investigation for obstruction," he told [[NBC]]'s ''{{w|Meet the Press}}''.<!--Washington Post Monday-->

    Addressing newscaster {{w|Chuck Todd}}, Sekulow went on to say, "The president is not under investigation by the special counsel. The tweet from the president was in response to the five anonymous sources purportedly leaking information to ''[[The Washington Post]]'' about a potential investigation of the president."<!--Washington Post Monday-->

    Former [[US House of Representatives|Speaker of the House]] and fellow [[Republican Party (United States)|Republican]] [[Newt Gingrich]] gave a different interpretation on {{w|ABC (US)|ABC}}'s ''{{w|This Week (ABC TV series)|This Week}}'': "Trump has a compulsion to counter-attack. I don’t think that tweet helped him."<!--Guardian Monday-->

    According to ''Washington Post'' and other reports released last week, three officials, {{w|Mike Rogers}} of the {{w|United States National Security Agency|National Security Agency}} (NSA), Daniel Coats of national intelligence, and former NSA deputy {{w|Richard Ledgett}} agreed to be interviewed as part of the investigation.<!--WPost-->
    {{QuoteLeft|They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story.|4=President Trump, on the investigation}}
    Up until then, the investigation, which has already lasted several months, had focused on financial ties or improper communication between members of the Trump campaign and the Russian government. President Trump does not stand accused of collusion of that kind. Rather, Mueller is investigating whether President Trump attempted to stop or obstruct earlier stages of the investigation in any inappropriate way.<!--WPost--> For example, according to Daniel Coats, Trump asked him to try to convince Mueller's predecessor as director of the FBI, [[James Comey]], to reduce the intensity of his investigation into connections between the {{w|Kremlin}} and then-national security advisor {{w|Michael Flynn}}, though Coats also said he did not feel pressured to comply.<!--WPost--> Comey later told the [[US Senate|U.S. Senate]] Trump had privately asked him the same, saying, "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go." Trump claims this is not true. He later fired Comey over what he called, in an interview, "this Russia thing".<!--Guardian B&J-->

    Although another of President Trump's personal attorneys, {{w|Marc Kasowitz}}, has been handling many of the questions about the investigation addressed to his client,<!--WPost--> President Trump did Tweet about it early Thursday morning: "They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story. Nice" and "single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people!"<!--NPR-->

    If Mueller should find evidence the President committed a crime, he is not likely to be charged. Rather, it would be the responsibility of the [[United States Congress]] to weigh the evidence and decide whether to start {{w|impeachment}} proceedings, which could remove Trump from office.<!--WPost and NPR-->

    Last year, the computer systems of both major U.S. political parties were hacked, and negative information about Democratic candidate [[Hillary Clinton]] was leaked to the public. According to an NSA report dated May 5 that was leaked to ''{{w|The Intercept|Intercept}}'' earlier this month, this hack was ordered by Russian military intelligence, specifically the {{w|Main Intelligence Directorate|Russian General Staff Main Intelligence Directorate}} (GRU), and not by unaffiliated Russian citizens with "patriotic leanings" as President [[Vladimir Putin]] had publicly claimed.<!--Intercept and Guardian S&S-->

    {{date|June 13, 2017}}
    {{Tennis}}
    On Sunday in {{w|tennis}}'s [[French Open]] men's singles final, "King of {{w|clay court|Clay}}" [[Rafael Nadal]] defeated {{w|Stan Wawrinka}} 6&ndash;2 6&ndash;3 6&ndash;1 to claim his tenth title in {{w|Paris}}. With this victory, Nadal became the first person to win a particular {{w|Grand Slam (tennis)|Grand Slam}} on ten occasions in the {{w|tennis open era|open era}}.
    {{missing image|File:Nadalgarros.jpg|left|thumb|File photo of Rafael Nadal {{image|MarioGalli01}}}}
    32-year-old Wawrinka, who has featured in three Grand Slam finals before yesterday's match, had a 100% win record, while Nadal, who won his first French Open title in 2005 at the age of 19, had never lost a French Open final.

    In the match lasting​ for just two hours and five minutes, Nadal served four {{w|ace (tennis)|aces}}, while the 2014 French Open winner Wawrinka hit only one. Nadal won six {{w|Tennis|anchor=Break point|break points}} out of thirteen. His opponent, Wawrinka, missed his only chance to break the Spaniard's serve. Wawrinka, who faced first seeded {{w|Andy Murray}} in the semi-final &mdash; winning that match 6&ndash;7 6&ndash;3 5&ndash;7 7&ndash;6 6&ndash;1 after four hours and 34 minutes &mdash; committed 29 {{w|unforced error|unforced errors}}, compared to Rafa's twelve.

    Just as in 2008 and 2010, Nadal did not drop a single set in the entire tournament. Last year, Nadal had to withdraw from the tournament due to wrist injury. Nadal extended his record at the French Open to 79&ndash;2, losing just two matches in thirteen seasons on the French soil. Nadal is the third man to win this Grand Slam title in his teens, 20s, and 30s; the others were {{w|Ken Rosewall}} and {{w|Pete Sampras}}.

    After the match, Nadal said, "You know, on paper, when you look at the scores, it all seems fairly easy[...] But it's not. As I said before, the French Open is the most important tournament of the year. That means when you arrive in Paris, I'm very nervous and I know that it's going to be difficult for me. Year after year it's becoming increasingly difficult, because I'm getting older, also."

    Nadal now has fifteen Grand Slam singles titles. Only {{w|Roger Federer}} has more than him. Nadal has faced Federer in the French Open finals four times. A player who defeated Nadal at {{w|Stade Roland Garros|Roland Garros}} has never won the tournament in that year, which remains true to current date.

  • Japan's National Diet passes law allowing Emperor Akihito to abdicate

    {{Japan}}
    {{date|June 12, 2017}}

    On Friday, [[Japan]]'s parliament, the {{w|National Diet}}, passed a law to allow [[Akihito|Emperor Akihito]] to abdicate. The law gives Akihito three years to become the first emperor to abdicate since {{w|Emperor Kōkaku|Emperor Kokaku}} in 1817, two hundred years ago.<!--AP-->

    [[File:Emperor Akihito (2016).jpg|left|thumb|Emperor Akihito in 2016 {{image|Malacañang Photo Bureau}}]]
    The newly passed law, made in response to the country's {{w|Imperial Household Law}}'s lack of abdication provisions, applies to only Akihito, aged 83.<!--AP--> It prohibits Akihito's successors from abdicating.<!--AP--><!--BBC, "Japan"-->

    Akihito ascended to the 2,000-year-old {{w|Chrysanthemum Throne}} when his father {{w|Hirohito|Emperor Hirohito}} died in 1989. Having a {{w|cardiac surgery}} and treatment for {{w|prostate cancer}}, Akihito in a televised address last year said age and health were interfering with his duties. Per {{w|Constitution of Japan|Japan's current constitution}}, an emperor cannot make political statements, so Akihito did not explicitly mention abdication.<!--BBC, "Japan"-->

    When abdication happens, under new law, Akihito's son and heir apparent {{w|Naruhito, Crown Prince of Japan|Naruhito}} will ascend the throne,<!--AP--><!--BBC, "Japan"--> becoming the country's 126th emperor.<!--IB Times--> Besides Naruhito, Akihito has another son and a daughter.<!--IB Times-->

    Emperor Akihito's heir apparent Naruhito, born in 1960,<!--IB Times--> graduated from [[Oxford University]] and married a {{w|Harvard University}} graduate {{w|Masako, Crown Princess of Japan|Masako Owada}} in 1993.<!--BBC, "Naruhito"--> {{w|Portland State University}} professor Kenneth Ruoff told the [[BBC]] that, while Akihito and his wife have been active in social causes, Naruhito and Masako have done little in this regard.<!--BBC, "Naruhito"--><!--IB Times--> A {{w|Kyoto Sangyo University}} emeritus professor Isao Tokoro said Naruhito "has been educated," is born, and is qualified "to be emperor[.]"<!--BBC, "Naruhito"-->

    In 2006, the National Diet debated on allowing female ascendance, as the emperor lacked grandsons at the time, due to the current male-only royal ascendance laws. Then {{w|Prince Hisahito of Akishino|Hisahito}}, now 10, was born, and the debate lapsed.<!--BBC, "Japan"--><!--AP-->

    Naruhito has only one child {{w|Aiko, Princess Toshi|Aiki}}, 15, while his brother {{w|Fumihito, Prince Akishino|Prince Akishino}}, 51, has three children, including his only son Hisahito. Per current law, Hisahito is qualified to ascend after his uncle Naruhito and his father.<!--AP--><!--NBC News-->

    The royal family has 19 living members,<!--IB Times--> including seven unmarried princesses and five males.<!--CNN, June--><!--NBC News--> Female royals, if marrying a {{wikt|commoner}}, would have to give up their royal status, leaving the royal family, while males would still be allowed to retain their royal status after marrying a commoner.<!--AP--><!--CNN, June--> Akishino's daughter {{w|Princess Mako of Akishino|Princess Mako}} announced her plans last month to relinquish her royal status and leave the royal family in order marry a commoner Kei Komuro, a graduate student and law firm worker, both of them aged 25.<!--CNN, May--> In 2005, Mako's aunt and Naruhito's sister {{w|Sayako Kuroda|Sayako, formerly Princess Nori}},<!--IB Times--> married a commoner Yoshiki Kuroda, a town planner, and was forced to relinquish her status and leave the family.<!--CNN, May-->

    A {{w|Temple University Japan}} professor Jeff Kingston said a national succession crisis has people raising concerns about female princesses leaving the royal family when getting married. Kingston added the family "[has] a shortage of male heirs."<!--CNN, June--> Kingston also said ousting a female royal for marrying a commoner is "a very old-fashioned approach, totally out of sync with 21st-century norms" to many people around the world, including in Japan.<!--NBC News-->

    In a survey by {{w|Kyodo News}} conducted in May of about 3000 people at least 18 years old, 68 percent said the Imperial Household Law should be amended to allow future emperors to abdicate. 25 percent favored separately legislating each abdication. Four percent said abdication of emperors should never be allowed.

    On questions involving female royals, 86 percent said to allow empresses; 59 percent supported both empresses and established branches of female lineages. 62 percent supported establishment of separate branches for princesses retaining their roles while marrying commoners; 35 percent opposed. 61 percent said female ascendance should be debated only after the abdication, while 28 percent said it shouldn't wait for the abdication.<!--Kyodo News-->

    Early this year, the Japanese Prime Minister [[Shinzo Abe]] considered giving imperial status to branches of those who left the royal family. In the survey, 22 percent supported the idea; 72 percent opposed.<!--Kyodo News-->

    The Abe government has avoided the debate of female ascendance but recently passed a non-binding resolution attached to the newly passed abdication law to consider how to strengthen female royal status, possibly including allowing them to retain their royal titles and continue their duties, to compensate for the declining royal population.<!--AP--><!--CNN, June--><!--NBC News-->

  • General election knocks out Conservative Parliamentary majority, leaving Brexit details in question

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Theresa May's Conservative Party wins UK election but loses majority, leaving Brexit plan in question": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow...


    {{United Kingdom}}
    {{date|June 11, 2017}}

    While [[Theresa May]] remains Prime Minister of [[Britain]], her party, the [[Conservative Party (UK)|Conservative Party]], won {{w|United Kingdom general election, 2017|Thursday's general election}} but lost its {{w|Parliamentary majority|majority}} in [[UK Parliament|Parliament]].

    [[File:Theresa May (cropped).png|thumb|left|File photo of Theresa May, 2017. {{image|Controller of Her Majesty’s Stationery Office}}]]
    The next scheduled general election was not until 2020. May requested this general election, called a snap election, in April, when polls indicated it would strengthen the then-slight majority the Conservatives held in Parliament. Talks to establish the specifics of Britain's [[2016 UK EU referendum|departure from the European Union]] are set to begin June 19. Last year, British voters decided to leave the EU, but many of the specifics of the United Kingdom's new relationship with the rest of Europe have yet to be established. May and the other Conservatives favor a "hard Brexit", in which Britain would lose its current level of access to Europe's single market and have to deal with higher tariffs and more complicated customs processes but it would regain full control of its borders with respect to trade and immigration.<!--Independent--> An increase in the number of Conservative Parliamentary seats would have supported this plan.

    "Officially Theresa May is still the partner in Brexit negotiations," said senior [[Germany|German]] MP {{w|Stephan Meyer}}, "but the political reality is different after this disastrous defeat. I can't imagine that May will be able to remain prime minister."

    {{w|Jean-Claude Juncker}} of the [[European Commission]] said, "As far as the Commission is concerned we can open negotiations tomorrow morning at half past nine [...] First we have to agree on the divorce and exit modalities, and then we have to envisage the architecture of our future relations. I do hope that the result of the elections will have no major impact on the negotiations we are desperately waiting for." <!--BBC-->

    A {{w|Parliamentary majority}} requires 326 of the organisation's 650 seats. The Conservative Party holds 318 outright, including May's own seat in {{w|Maidenhead}}, and the [[Labour Party (UK)|Labour Party]] holds 262, having gained about 30 in this election. In Britain, the leader of whichever political party has the most seats becomes Prime Minister, though they are also formally appointed by the monarch. Theresa May became leader of the Conservative Party on July 11 of last year and was appointed by [[Queen Elizabeth II]] two days later. Cases in which no political party wins outright are called a {{w|hung Parliament}}, and then two or more parties rule together in coalition. Britain had a coalition government from 2010 to 2015.<!--Sun--> [[Northern Ireland]]'s {{w|Democratic Unionist Party}} has pledged an unofficial alliance with the Conservatives, which would bring them up to 328<!--Reuters-->.

    This would make May the second Prime Minister in a row to call an election with unexpected results. [[David Cameron]] called for a referendum on Britain's EU membership, not expecting the voters would reject it.<!--Reuters-->

    May's current ministry said most of her senior officials, including Treasurer {{w|Philip Hammond}}, Foreign Secretary [[Boris Johnson]], and Home Secretary {{w|Amber Rudd}}, will remain in the Cabinet.<!--AP-->

    May met with [[Queen Elizabeth II]] yesterday to request her permission to form a government in her name, a traditional formality.<!--Reuters-->

  • Former U.S. FBI Director James Comey testifies about President Trump

    {{United States}}
    {{date|June 10, 2017}}

    Former director of the [[United States]]' [[Federal Bureau of Investigation]] [[James Comey]] testified on Thursday before the [[US Senate|Senate]]<!--New York Times--> about meetings between himself and U.S. President [[Donald Trump]] and about the [[Russia]]n [[Russian involvement in the 2016 US presidential election|involvement]] in [[2016 US presidential election|last year's election]], in which Trump was elected.

    "I take the president at his word — that I was fired because of the Russia investigation. Something about the way I was conducting it," Comey told the Senate, "the president felt, created pressure on him that he wanted to relieve."<!--NYTimes-->

    Other parts of Comey's testimony raise questions regarding whether Trump committed the crime of {{w|obstruction of justice}} by attempting to end the FBI's investigation of his former advisor {{w|Michael Flynn}}.

    "The president never, in form or substance, directed or suggested that Mr. Comey stop investigating anyone," Mr. Trump's lawyer, {{w|Marc E. Kasowitz}}, told the public.

    Trump fired Comey about a month ago, on May 9. Officially, he was dismissed for mishandling the [[Hillary Clinton]] {{w|Hillary Clinton email scandal|email scandal}}, according to the {{w|U.S. Justice Department}}, and for investigating alleged ties between Trump's presidential campaign and the Russian government, according to President Trump.<!--Guardian--> Of Trump's claims that Comey was fired because he'd done a poor job of running the FBI and that his subordinates did not trust him, Comey said, "Those were lies, plain and simple."<!--NYTimes-->

  • Borussia Dortmund announces former Ajax coach Peter Bosz as team's new boss

    Pi zero: Protected "Borussia Dortmund announces former Ajax coach Peter Bosz as team's new boss": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|June 9, 2017}}
    {{infobox|Borussia Dortmund}}
    On Tuesday, {{w|Germany|German}} {{w|soccer|football}} club [[Borussia Dortmund]] (BVB) announced {{w|Peter Bosz}} as their new head coach. Bosz, who spent one season with the {{w|Netherlands|Dutch}} {{w|Eredivisie}} runners-up {{w|AFC Ajax|Ajax}}, was to sign a two-year deal with the DFB Pokal winners BVB which runs through June 2019. Ajax's assistant coach Hendrie Krüzen also was to leave the Dutch side for Dortmund.

    The 53-year-old Dutch manager led the the Dutch capital club to a second place finish in the Dutch league Eredivisie, finishing just one point below {{w|Feyenoord Rotterdam}} and won a silver medal in the UEFA Europa League, losing 2&ndash;0 against [[Manchester United]].

    Bosz's predecessor {{w|Thomas Tuchel}} led Dortmund to the DFB Pokal victory, third place finish in [[Bundesliga]] the last season and a qualification to next season's {{w|UEFA Champions League|Champions League}} group stage. Two years ago, Tuchel succeded {{w|Jürgen Klopp}} and his side remained unbeaten in the home games. On May 30, days after winning his first trophy with Borussia Dortmund, the club announced Tuchel was sacked with immediate effect via their official website. "'Unfortunately we couldn't see a basis for continued work together built on trust with a successful outlook in the current personnel constellation.", the CEO said.

    Edwin van der Sar, Ajax's General Manager said, {{translated quote|nl|Dutch language|Ik heb gemengde gevoelens bij deze overgang. Toen we Peter vorige zomer naar Ajax haalden was het niet de bedoeling dat na één jaar alweer een einde zou komen aan de samenwerking. We hebben, met name in de Europa League, een geweldig seizoen neergezet. Net als bij onze spelers trekt dat ook voor de trainer de aandacht van clubs uit de Europese topcompetities. Het ging ons te ver om hem aan zijn contract te houden en we zijn er met Dortmund goed uitgekomen. Het is nu aan ons om, voordat de voorbereiding begint, een goede opvolger te contracteren.|I have mixed feelings about this transfer. When we brought Peter in to Ajax last summer, it wasn't our intention that our partnership would end after just one season. Especially in the Europa League, we've had an amazing season. For our players, and our coach, that has attracted extra attention from clubs in top European competitions. But we couldn't go so far as to bind him to his contract, and we worked out a good deal with Dortmund. It's now up to us, prior to the start of the pre-season, to sign on a good successor.}}

    Under former coach Thomas Tuchel, Borussia Dortmund's key players {{w|İlkay Gündoğan}}, {{w|Henrikh Mkhitaryan}} and Dortmund then-captain {{w|Mats Hummels}} left {{w|Signal Iduna Park}} last season, but signed {{w|Ousmane Dembélé}}, {{w|André Schürrle}}, {{w|Marc Bartra}} and {{w|Mario Götze}}.

    This season, Dortmund signed Ömer Toprak, Mahmoud Dahoud, Dan-Axel Zagadou and Maximilian Philipp.

Not much later, {{w|Mario Mandžukić}} scored a goal from an overhead kick in the 27th minute from former Real Madrid forward {{w|Gonzalo Higuaín}}. Three players were booked in the first half &mdash; Juve's {{w|Paulo Dybala}}, Real Madrid's captain {{w|Sergio Ramos}} and Dani Carvajal as the first half ended 1&ndash;1.

    Just after the one hour mark, {{w|Casemiro}} made it 2&ndash;1 as his right footed shot deflecting off {{w|Sami Khedira}} found the net, and three minutes later, Ronaldo netted his 600th career goal from {{w|Luka Modrić}}'s cross from just six yards in front of the goal. {{w|Juan Cuadrado}}, who was substituted after the scoreline was 1&ndash;3, was booked twice in the span of eleven minutes, in the 72nd and 83rd minutes, making the situation harder for trailing Juventus. The ten-men Juve had seven minutes plus injury time to minimise the damage. But, a 90th minute goal by {{w|Marco Asensio}} ensured the game ended without going into extra time like last year's final. Asensio was shown a yellow card for his celebration.

    Real Madrid, under {{w|Zinedine Zidane}}, secured their twelfth European title; their sixth Champions League trophy after the tournament's rebranding, becoming the first club to win consecutive Champions League titles. They also won the {{w|La Liga}} title this season. Juve's goalkeeper, {{w|Gianluigi Buffon}}, missed out on what would have been his first Champions League title. Juventus missed their second chance to win a {{w|treble (association football)|treble}}, previously denied by [[FC Barcelona]] two years ago.<!-- http://www.uefa.com/uefachampionsleague/news/newsid=2468197.html -->

    Ronaldo is to face his former club [[Manchester United]] and his former manager at Real Madrid in 2012, [[José Mourinho]] in the {{w|UEFA Super Cup}} in [[Macedonia]], scheduled for August 8. Ronaldo has now won four Champions League titles &mdash; three with ''Los Blancos'' and one with Manchester &mdash; and finished as the Champions League top scorer netting twelve goals this season ahead of [[Lionel Messi]]. For the last four years, Spanish clubs have won four European Championship in a row, Real Madrid and Barcelona, more than any other [[Europe]]an country.

  • Cosby sexual assault trial begins

    AlvaroMolina: Undo revision 4325987 by 38.114.71.6 (talk) Vandalism


    {{crime and law}}
    {{date|June 20, 2017}}

    On Saturday, Judge Steven O'Niell of {{w|Norristown, Pennsylvania|Norristown}}, [[Pennsylvania]] declared a {{w|mistrial}} in the trial of [[United States|U.S.]] actor [[Bill Cosby]] for [[sexual assault]] because the jury had become deadlocked, unable to arrive at a unanimous guilty or not guilty verdict. Prosecutors immediately announced plans to retry the case.<!--CNN-->

    Brian McMonagle, one of Cosby's lawyers, addressed the jury, "We came here looking for an acquittal but like that {{w|Rolling Stones}} song says, 'You can't always get what you want. But sometimes you get what you need.'"<!--CNN-->

    {{QuoteLeft|It would be reasonable, based on the evidence presented, for the jurors to agree that Cosby is a sexual predator and still disagree on a verdict as to the assault of Constand.|4=Former prosecutor Kevin Harden Jr.}}
    The jurors had deliberated for a total of 53 hours, longer than the testimony of all witnesses combined.<!--NBC 16--> They had already declared themselves deadlocked Thursday morning, at which time Judge O'Niell told them to return to deliberations and try again. On Friday, they emerged to request copies of previous testimony and phone transcripts.

    [[File:The World Affairs Council and Girard College present Bill Cosby (6343662303) (cropped to Cosby).jpg|thumb|left|Cosby in 2011{{image|The World Affairs Council of Philadelphia}}]]
    During their deliberations, the jury asked to review the testimony of alleged victim Andrea Constand, particularly her testimony about the 2004 night the alleged assault took place, which produced over 300 pages of transcripts.<!--NBC News--> Constand claims that, in 2004 when she was working for {{w|Temple University}}, Cosby invited her to his home, where he gave her pills that left her "immobilized"<!--NYTimes--> and unable to speak and then touched her breasts and genitals and placed her hand on his exposed genitals<!--Guardian-->. Cosby claims their contact was consensual and that the pills he gave her were ordinary Benadryl<!--CNN-->, though he has admitted on-record that he gave women {{w|quaaludes}} for sex in the 1970s. Cosby was accused of three charges of {{w|aggravated}} [[indecent assault]], these being assaulting Constand without her consent; whilst she was unconscious; and after using drugs to impair her ability to give consent. On each charge, a guilty verdict could have placed Cosby, now 79, in prison for up to ten years.<!--CNN--> Many other women have claimed that Cosby assaulted them as well, with specifics ranging from inappropriate touching to rape<!--Guardian-->, but the {{w|statute of limitations}} for many of these complaints has expired, meaning that the crime happened too long ago for the government to legally prosecute Cosby. However, Pennsylvania law does allow for the testimony of such victims in other sexual assault trials, and one of these women, Kelly Johnson<!--CNN-->, testified in last week's proceedings.<!--Guardian-->

    Constand did file a complaint with police in 2005, and the district attorney at the time, {{w|Bruce Castor}}, decided against charging Cosby. Constand then sued Cosby in civil court and the matter was settled with an undisclosed sum. However, during his deposition for this civil case, Cosby admitted on the record to giving women quaaludes.

    When asked why he thought the jury was unable to come to a unanimous verdict in this case, former Philadelphia prosecutor Kevin Harden Junior said that the jurors probably had doubts regarding Constand's credibility and cited the fact that only one of Cosby's other accusers had been allowed to testify: "By limiting evidence of other accusers, the Court focused the jury on whether the prosecution presented enough credible evidence to convict Cosby of this particular assault. [...] It would be reasonable, based on the evidence presented, for the jurors to agree that Cosby is a sexual predator and still disagree on a verdict as to the assault of Constand."<!--NYTimes-->

    {{w|University of Richmond}} law professor Carl Tobias commented on the prospects for a new trial: "The fact that the case turned substantially on one person's testimony may have made it difficult to win and the defense counsel made many efforts to undercut her testimony. The retrial happens next, and the prosecution may try to call other accusers."<!--CNN-->

  • Terrorists kill seven on London Bridge

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Seven killed, forty-eight injured in attack on London Bridge": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{United Kingdom}}
    {{date|June 5, 2017}}

    Saturday night in the [[UK]]<!--BBC-->, three men wearing what were later found to be fake suicide vests drove a van into crowds on {{w|London Bridge}}, then exited the van at {{w|Borough Market}} and began to stab people with blades, killing seven and injuring at least 48. All three were shot and killed by police, who went on to arrest at least twelve other people.<!--Guardian--> Militants from the [[Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant]] claimed responsibility.<!--Telegraph-->

    Prime Minister [[Theresa May]] says that the attacks on Westminster Bridge, Manchester Arena, and now London Bridge were not connected through any known network but did attribute the attack to the "evil ideology of {{w|Islamism|Islamist}} extremism".<!--Guardian--> According to the [[BBC]], a witness to the attack heard one or more of the perpetrators say "this is for {{w|Islam|Allah}}."<!--Guardian-->
    {{QuoteLeft|Muslims everywhere are outraged and disgusted at these cowards [...] That this should happen in this month of Ramadan [...] only goes to show that these people respect neither life nor faith|source=Harun Khan of the Muslim Council of Britain}}
    "Enough is enough," said May. "There is, to be frank, far too much tolerance of extremism in our country. So we need to become far more robust at identifying it and stamping it out [...] That will require some difficult and often embarrassing conversations. We need to live our lives not in a series of separated, segregated communities but as one truly United Kingdom."<!--Guardian-->

    The [[Muslim Council of Britain]] condemned the attacks: "These acts of violence were truly shocking and I condemn them in the strongest terms. Muslims everywhere are outraged and disgusted at these cowards who once again have destroyed the lives of our fellow Britons. That this should happen in this month of Ramadan, when many Muslims were praying and fasting only goes to show that these people respect neither life nor faith" said the organization's Secretary General, {{w|Harun Khan}}.

    Yesterday<!--On Sunday--> morning there was no train service to London Bridge station. Because the site was still cordoned off, many people had to take miles-long detours, often on foot, to get to work or else had to wait outside for long periods. Security office Mohammed Osman told the press: "I'm not feeling worried. I'm strong enough. These enemies are trying to divide us but we have to be together."<!--BBC-->

    While most of [[United Kingdom|the country]]'s political parties have decided to suspend campaigning temporarily, the upcoming general elections scheduled for Thursday have not been cancelled.

    According to the ''BBC'', this attack differs from the one in Manchester Arena because creating a bomb requires sophisticated technical skill and operating vans and knives does not.<!--BBC-->

    Some of the people injured in the attacks have been released from hospitals; as of yesterday<!--Sunday-->, others were still reported in critical condition.<!--Guardian-->

  • Leo Varadkar becomes the first openly gay elected Taoiseach of Ireland

    Pi zero: there isn't more than one Ireland; there's Ireland, and then there's a small bit called "Northern Ireland"


    {{date|June 16, 2017}}
    {{Ireland}}

    On Wednesday, a {{w|Fine Gael|Fine Gael party}} premier candidate and doctor {{w|Leo Varadkar}} was elected {{w|Taoiseach}} &mdash; Prime Minister of [[Ireland]] &mdash; succeeding {{w|Enda Kenny}}, who confirmed his resignation on Tuesday. He becomes the first openly gay Taoiseach in Irish history.

    }}
    In Wednesday's election, 55 members of the Irish parliament {{w|Dáil Éireann}} voted for Varadkar as the 14th Taoiseach, the head of government; 50 against; and 45 abstained.<!--BBC, "Leo Varadkar elected"--><!--RTÉ, "Finance"-->

    Also, in {{w|Áras an Uachtaráin}}, the current {{w|President of Ireland}}, head of state, {{w|Michael D. Higgins}} presented Varadkar with the seals of Taoiseach and the Government.<!--RTÉ, "Finance"-->

    In Wednesday's speech, Varadkar acknowledged his predecessor Kenny for helping to rebuild the country and legalize same-sex marriage.<!--RTÉ, "Finance"-->

    In May, Kenny, aged 66,<!--DW--> announced his retirement as Taoiseach and, after 15 years of service, the leader of Fine Gael.<!--BBC, "Leo Varadkar set", Page--><!--France 24--> Kenny has served the parliamentary as also {{w|Teachta Dála}} (TD), a member of the parliament, for {{w|Mayo (Dáil Éireann constituency)|Mayo}} since he was elected TD for {{w|Mayo West (Dáil Éireann constituency)|Mayo West}} in 1975, succeeding Kenny's {{w|Henry Kenny|late father}}.<!--Reuters, "Leo Varadkar: Son"--><!--The Irish Times--><!--BBC, "Leo Varadkar set", Page--> On Tuesday, Kenny confirmed his resignation ending his premiership after six years of premiership.<!--Irish Examiner-->

    In an election on June 2, Varadkar was {{w|Fine Gael leadership election, 2017|elected}} the Fine Gael premier candidate by 60 percent of the votes.<!--Reuters, "Leo Varadkar: Son"--><!--DW--><!--BBC, "Leo Varadkar elected"--> His political opponent {{w|Simon Coveney}} was voted for premiership by 40 percent and lost.<!--DW--> Varadkar received the electoral college vote, derived from votes by party members, local representatives and parliamentarians.<!--France 24--> About 70 percent of Fine Gael parliamentary members favoured Varadkar:<!--DW--> 51 of 73, while 22 of 73 favoured Coveney.<!--France 24--> However, 65 percent of overall party members favoured Coveney.<!--France 24--><!--DW-->

    One week later, on June 9, after [[Theresa May]]'s [[Conservative Party (UK)|Conservative Party]] won this year's general election in the [[United Kingdom]] but lost the majority, Varadkar said the UK election results signified that hard [[Brexit]] lacks a "strong mandate", calling this "an opportunity for Ireland." He also said he will negotiate with the UK over [[Northern Ireland]].<!--RTÉ, "UK"-->

    Yesterday<!-- On Thursday-->, Varadkar combined two departments of Finance and of Public Expenditure into one, and appointed new Cabinet ministers, including his rival Coveney as foreign minister.<!--RTÉ, "Finance"-->

    Leo Eric Varadkar,<!--Irish Times--> 38, was born on January 18, 1979 in [[Dublin]], [[Ireland]] to his Indian father and Irish mother, a doctor and nurse respectively, who have lived in Ireland since the 1970s, where homosexuality was illegal until the 1990s.<!--BBC, "Leo Varadkar profile", Page-->

    Varadkar, as a 20-year-old {{w|Trinity College, Dublin|Trinity College}} medical student, campaigned in the 1999 local {{w|Mulhuddart}} election and lost.<!--The Irish Times--> In 2003, Varadkar became a councilor aged 24 to replace {{w|Sheila Terry (politician)|Sheila Terry}}, who had to resign due to a conflicting parliamentary office.<!--The Irish Times--><!--BBC, "Leo Varadkar profile", Page-->

    In 2007, Varadkar was elected TD.<!--The Irish Times--><!--BBC, "Leo Varadkar set", Page--> While Ireland suffered from ongoing {{w|Post-2008 Irish economic downturn|economic crisis}}, Fine Gael started leading the country in 2011, and Varadkar has since served as minister for social protection; health; and transport, tourism and sport.<!--BBC, "Leo Varadkar profile", Page--><!--DW-->

    In 2015, Varadkar came out as gay in a {{w|Raidió Teilifís Éireann}} (RTÉ) interview, months before the country legalised same-sex marriage by referendum under Taoiseach Kenny.<!--BBC, "Leo Varadkar profile", Page--><!--Irish Examiner-->

    A {{w|University College Cork}} lecturer Theresa Reidy told ''[[Reuters]]'', "When you're Taoiseach, you can't speak as open and freely as when you're a maverick, straight-shooting minister. If he [Varadkar] doesn't temper his more colorful contributions, that could actually become a liability quite quickly." Reidy further said he has relatively little experience despite having held three different cabinet posts.<!--Reuters, "Leo Varadkar: Son"; -->

    Varadkar's partner is a doctor in Dublin.<!--DW--> Varadkar is about a year younger than {{w|France|French}} President {{w|Emmanuel Macron}}; Macron is 39 years old.<!--Reuters, "Leo Varadkar: Son"-->

  • Curiosity Rover reports chemically complex lake once graced Mars' Gale Crater

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Curiosity Rover analysis suggests chemically complex lake once graced Mars's Gale crater": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administ...

    {{date|June 4, 2017}}

    In an analysis published on Friday in ''{{w|Science (journal)|Science}}'', scientists announced data collected from the {{w|Curiosity Rover}} show that [[Mars]]'s {{w|Gale Crater}} was once a chemically stratified lake, meaning the aquatic environment differed markedly between deep and shallow water.<!--Eurekalert--> According to the report, "all of the physical, chemical, and energetic conditions necessary to establish a habitable environment were present on Mars between ~3.8 billion and 3.1 billion years ago."<!--Science-->
    [[File:PIA16239_High-Resolution_Self-Portrait_by_Curiosity_Rover_Arm_Camera.jpg|thumb|left|Composite self-portrait of the Curiosity Rover, taken in 2012{{image|NASA/JPL-Caltech/Malin Space Science Systems}}]]
    Analysis shows the chemical index of alteration fluctuated over time in a way that suggested the lake varied between hot, wet periods and colder, drier periods. The shallow water would have been rich in oxidants brought in from the atmosphere and groundwater, and the deeper water would have been oxidant poor. {{w|Phosphates}}, {{w|carbon}}, {{w|nitrogen}}, {{w|iron}} and {{w|sulfur}}, indicating chemistry suitable for life, have also been found there in a variety of compounds.<!--Science-->

    Lead author Joel Hurowitz of {{w|Stony Brook University}} explained, "These were very different, co-existing environments in the same lake[...] This type of oxidant stratification is a common feature of {{w|lake|lakes}} on Earth, and now we've found it on Mars. The diversity of environments in this Martian lake would have provided multiple opportunities for different types of microbes to survive."<!--Eurekalert-->

    The scientists also evaluated the fineness of the {{w|sediment}}, meaning the sizes of individual particles of dirt, dust and sand. Curiosity found larger grains near the edges of the lake where sediments from incoming rivers and streams would have fed it, and smaller ones in what would have been the deep lakebed, which is consistent with particles dropping out of the water as the current slows down.<!--Science---> "We could tell something was going on," Hurowitz said in a statement. "What was causing iron minerals to be one flavor in one part of the lake and another flavor in another part of the lake? We had an 'Aha!' moment when we realized that the mineral information and the bedding-thickness information mapped perfectly onto each other in a way you would expect from a stratified lake with a chemical boundary between shallow water and deeper water."<!--NASA and Register-->

    On Thursday, the [[Sri Lanka]]n government reported more than 202 people were killed due to the torrential heavy rains caused by {{w|cyclone Mora}} over the last few days. {{W|Galle}}, {{W|Matara, Sri Lanka|Matara}}, {{W|Kalutara}}, {{W|Rathnapura}}, {{W|Colombo}} districts were mainly affected due to the heavy rains.

    According to the figures reported by the Disaster Management Center (DMC) issued on Wednesday, at least 202 people have been confirmed dead while about 99 people were missing and 122 injured.<!-- add: Leaving about 500,000 displaced --> The report said about 1505 houses were destroyed and more than 7600 houses were damaged. More than 629,742 were affected and several people have been displaced to safe places, DMC stated.

    Sixteen countries including [[India]], [[Russia]], the [[US]] had offered food and relief medicines, Foreign Minister Ravi Karunanayake said yesterday. On Monday, [[Red Cross]] said this was Sri Lanka's {{w|2017 Sri Lanka floods|worst floods}} since 2003. Police said the Panapitiya Bolgoda dam could collapse due to the heavy rains.

  • Man posthumously marries a late police officer in Paris

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Man posthumously marries Legion of Honour recipient in France": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{France}}
    {{date|June 2, 2017}}

    On Tuesday or Wednesday, by varying reports,<!--BBC--><!--Sky News--> Etienne Cardiles married his late partner Xavier Jugelé at a posthumous wedding ceremony in [[France]]. Xavier Jugelé was a police officer posthumously awarded France's {{w|Legion of Honour}} &mdash; amongst the highest honours of France &mdash; after he was killed in the line of duty in April of this year.

    Some reports indicated the guests included former French President [[Francois Hollande]] and current Mayor of [[Paris]] {{w|Anne Hidalgo}}.<!--BBC-->

    The {{w|BBC}} reported this ceremony may be the first posthumous {{w|same-sex wedding}} in France, where posthumous weddings are legally allowed under the country's civil code.<!--BBC--><!--CNN--> Hollande, while in office, granted Cardiles permission; posthumous marriage guidelines on the French government's website say the president may grant permission if the petitioner, here Cardiles, shows serious cause and the other partner's willingness to be married. In [[China]], posthumous weddings are also practiced in a form called "ghost marriages", arranged for deceased with a living or dead partner.<!--CNN-->

    Jugelé had a civil partnership with Cardiles. Jugelé was a campaigner for gay rights, and as an officer worked in Paris since 2014. He also was deployed in the {{w|November 2015 Paris attacks}}.<!--BBC-->

    On April 20, Jugelé was fatally shot twice in the head on duty by a convicted criminal Karim Cheurfi during the {{w|2017 shooting of Paris police officers|Champs-Élysées shooting incident}} of that day.<!--Sky News--> During the shooting, two other officers were wounded, and Cheurfi was fatally shot in action.<!--BBC-->

    At a remembrance ceremony for Jugelé in April, then-President Hollande gave him the Legion of Honour. Cardiles said in eulogy, "I have no hatred, Xavier, because it is not like you and does not fit with what made your heart beat nor what made you a guardian of the peace."<!--Sky News-->

  • Truck bomb kills 80 in Afghan capital city center

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Truck bomb kills at least 80 in Afghan capital city center": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{Afghanistan}}
    {{date|May 31, 2017}}

    In what [[Afghanistan|Afghan]] president [[Ashraf Ghani]] called "a crime against humanity," earlier this morning, local time, a septic tanker truck filled with explosives detonated not far from the [[Germany|German]] embassy<!--Guardian--> in [[Kabul]]'s {{w|Wazir Akbar Khan}} area, during the city's morning commute.<!--Irish--> According to the country's health ministry<!--NBC-->, at least 83 bodies have been found and over 450 have been wounded. The ministry's spokesperson, Ismail Kawasi, said most of the victims were civilians, including children.<!--NYTimes, NBC-->
    {{QuoteLeft|It was a car bomb near the German embassy, but there are several other important compounds and offices near there too. It is hard to say what the exact target is|source=Police Spokesperson Basir Mujahid}}
    "The attack demonstrates a complete disregard for civilians and reveals the barbaric nature of the enemy faced by the Afghan people," Ghani said in an official statement. "The terrorists, even in the holy month of [[Ramadan]], the month of goodness, blessing and prayer, are not stopping the killing of our innocent people," he said. General John W. Nicholson Jr., commander of American and North Atlantic Treaty Organization forces in Afghanistan congratulated city security forces for preventing the truck from coming any closer to important government buildings and embassies.<!--NYTimes-->

    This attack was unusual, though not unheard of, because of the sheer volume of the bomb involved. According to Kabul's police chief, General {{w|Hassan Shah Frogh}}, "The blast was so huge that it dug a big crater as deep as four meters" (13 {{w|foot (unit)|feet}}) and it damaged buildings as far as one mile (1.2 {{w|kilometre|km}}) away.<!--NYTimes-->

    Though an initial report by Interior Ministry spokesman Najib Danish claimed the site of the detonation as near one of the gates to the {{w|Afghan Presidential Palace}}, it was actually closer to the German embassy,<!--NBC News--> which sustained considerable damage, according to [[NBC]]. Germany currently has more than 950 soldiers in Afghanistan as part of [[NATO]]'s {{w|Resolute Support Mission}} and helped the Afghan security personnel in their training.<!--NY Times, IrishI--> "It was a car bomb near the German embassy, but there are several other important compounds and offices near there too. It is hard to say what the exact target is," said police spokesperson Basir Mujahid.<!--Guardian-->

    The Taliban has denied any association with this attack. Western countries have been {{w|War in Afghanistan (2001–14)|fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan for about 15 years}}, including the U.S., Germany, and [[UK|Britain]], but many of these countries {{w|Withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan|withdrew much of their forces before 2015}}. Since then, the Taliban has come to control about 40% of Afghanistan, per U.S. estimates. <!--NBC News-->
