|Gun control support fades three months after Florida massacre: Reuters/Ipsos poll|
|Wed, 23 May 2018 12:53:58 -0400|
By Daniel Trotta NEW YORK (Reuters) - The Parkland, Florida, school massacre has had little lasting impact on U.S. views on gun control, three months after the shooting deaths of 17 people propelled a national movement by some student survivors, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed on Wednesday. While U.S. public support for more gun control measures has grown slowly but steadily over the years, it typically spikes immediately after the mass shootings that have become part of the U.S. landscape, then falls back to pre-massacre levels within a few months. The poll found that 69 percent of American adults supported strong or moderate regulations or restrictions for firearms, down from 75 percent in late March, when the first poll was conducted following the Valentine's Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

2018 might well be dubbed the year of the Mediterranean diet. Not only did it tie for the best overall diet in the U.S. News Best Diets rankings in January, but this year also marks the Mediterranean diet pyramid's 25th anniversary. Beyond being linked to a host of powerful health benefits including a reduction in heart disease risk, potential weight loss, improved brain health and longevity, much of the eating pattern's staying power can be attributed to its flexibility -- there aren't entire food groups excluded, and followers don't calorie count or track macros.

|Amnesty highlights sex-for-food claims in Boko Haram-hit Nigeria|
|Thu, 24 May 2018 04:20:50 -0400|
Amnesty International on Thursday urged Nigeria to act on claims soldiers and members of the civilian militia have raped women and girls in remote camps for people displaced by Boko Haram but the government said the rights monitor was repeating false accusations. Amnesty said it had gathered multiple testimonies about alleged abuse by the security forces, including claimed that soldiers coerced vulnerable survivors into having sex in exchange for food. In November 2016, police vowed to look into allegations of sexual abuse and exploitation in the camps but several months later, the military rejected the allegations.

|MH17: Plane shot down with Russian military missile launcher, investigators conclude|
|Thu, 24 May 2018 06:18:44 -0400|
An international investigation has said the Russian military brought the missile that downed Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 into eastern Ukraine, leading to the tragedy that killed 298 people. The Dutch-led Joint Investigation Team said last year the Buk 9M38 surface-to-air missile in question arrived from Russia and was fired from territory held by Russia-backed separatists. But Thursday's press conference in the Netherlands for the first time implicated the Russian military, of which president Vladimir Putin is the commander in chief, in the catastrophe that shocked the world in July 2014. Although the JIT did not say who pulled the trigger, the conclusion that the 53rd anti-aircraft brigade from Kursk, a unit of a “few hundred people,” was operating the missile marks a step closer to naming the perpetrators. Investigators said they were working toward a court case in the Netherlands against those who fired the Buk Telar missile system as well as higher-ups in their chain of command. They are reportedly focusing on 100 or so suspects.

The JIT said it had again requested information from Russia, which had failed to tell it of this missile unit's activities, and put out another open call for confidential witness testimony. “We are looking for people that were directly or indirectly involved in the downing of MH17, but we're also thinking of individuals who were responsible for the operation that deployed the Buk Telar,” said Wilbert Paulissen, head of the Dutch national police. Russian officials began pushing back against the Dutch allegation almost immediately. Moscow has since the days after the plane went down put out a raft of unlikely theories to shift the blame to Ukraine and vetoed a proposed United Nations tribunal. Video: The Telegraph's Roland Oliphant visits site of downed jet Yury Shvytkin, a member of parliament from the ruling party, called the investigation “aggression against our country like that during the Skripal case” and claimed it would have to “at the minimum” find a soldier's fingerprints on the Buk missile to accuse Moscow. One of the two main Russian state television channels ignored the news on Thursday afternoon, while the other posted a news item on its website that avoided any mention of the Russian military involvement. The defence ministry could not immediately be reached for comment, even as it continued to post on social media footage tanks and ships at war games. Those killed when the missile hit MH17 at 33,000 feet, raining bodies and debris onto the farm fields below, were mostly Dutch but also of 17 other nationalities including British, Australian, Malaysian and Indonesian. Mr Paulissen said a “fingerprint for the missile” had been established through seven markings and features on the sides of the launcher visible in social media images. Photographs, videos and witness testimony traced the progress of this launcher in a convoy from Kursk to the Ukrainian border in June 2014, and it was photographed again near the launch site on the day of the catastrophe. Investigators also detonated a Buk missile to compare the debris to that found in the fields and bodies of MH17 victims, according to Australian federal police commander Jennifer Hurst. She displayed an engine casing and thrust nozzle from the Buk responsible with a serial number she said indicated it had been produced at a factory near Moscow in 1986. FAQ | Flight MH17 Asked whether there were satellite images of the launch, Dutch chief prosecutor Fred Westerbeke said the investigation had more information that it could not reveal at the risk of “showing our cards to the other side”. He added it was entering the “last phase” ahead of possible legal proceedings. Relatives of MH17 victims said in a letter in the independent newspaper Novaya Gazeta on Wednesday that a “shadow” hangs over the World Cup, and the “Russian leaders who will profess to welcome the world with open arms, are those who are chiefly to blame for shattering our world”.
