  • Australian grandmother Maria Exposto sentenced to death for drugs in Malaysia news

    An Australian grandmother who said she was tricked into carrying drugs into Malaysia after falling for an online romance scam was Thursday sentenced to death after an earlier acquittal was overturned, her lawyer said. Maria Elvira Pinto Exposto was arrested in December 2014 while in transit at Kuala Lumpur airport with 1.1 kilos (2.4 pounds) of crystal methamphetamine stitched into the compartment of a backpack she was carrying. The 54-year-old was cleared in December of trafficking after a High Court judge ruled she did not know she was transporting the drugs. But prosecutors challenged the decision and an appeals court overturned the acquittal Thursday, and found her guilty, her lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah said. Anyone caught with at least 50 grams (1.75 ounces) of crystal meth is considered a trafficker in Muslim-majority Malaysia, and death by hanging is mandatory in the case of a conviction. FAQ | Methamphetamine Shafee slammed the ruling as "perverse" and said Exposto would make a final appeal to the country's top court. "I thought there was an overwhelming case for the defence. I am shocked with the decision," he said. The mother of four argued she did not know about the hidden stash of "ice". She said she had been fooled into carrying the bag after travelling to China to see someone she met online called "Captain Daniel Smith", who had claimed to be a US serviceman. After engaging in a long online romance, Exposto had travelled to Shanghai to see "Smith". But she did not succeed in meeting her supposed love interest while there and ended up being given a bag by a stranger, who asked her to take it to Melbourne. When she arrived at Kuala Lumpur International Airport to change flights, she mistakenly went through immigration as she was unfamiliar with the airport. She voluntarily offered her bags for customs inspection and the drugs were discovered. There are at least 900 people on death row in Malaysia, officials have said, but executions have been rare in recent years. Malaysian lawmakers have voted to amend legislation so that capital punishment is no longer mandatory in drug-trafficking cases. But the changes have not yet come into force as they must be passed by the upper house. Two Australians were hanged in Malaysia in 1986 for heroin trafficking - the first Westerners to be executed in the country - in a case that strained relations. In 2013 Dominic Bird, a former truck driver from Perth, was acquitted of drug trafficking charges after he was allegedly caught with 167 grams of crystal methamphetamine.

The Rim of the Pacific exercise, known as RIMPAC and previously attended by China, is billed as the world's largest international maritime exercise and held every two years in Hawaii in June and July. The Pentagon said the withdrawal of the invitation was in response to what it sees as Beijing's militarization of islands in the disputed South China Sea, a strategic waterway claimed in large part by Beijing.

  • MH17: Plane shot down with Russian military missile launcher, investigators conclude news

    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.  Dutch police investigator Wilbert Paulissen next to the engine casing and thrust nozzile of the missile that brought down MH17 Credit: FRANCOIS LENOIR /Reuters The allegations come after Yulia Skripal said she was lucky to have survived an “attempted assassination” with a nerve agent in Salisbury, raising pressure on Russia three weeks before the start of the World Cup here.  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”.

  • Georgia makes history with Stacey Abrams, the first black female nominee for governor news

    Georgia could be set to elect the first black female governor in US history after lawyer Stacey Abrams won the Democratic primary for the race. Ms Abrams has already made history as both the first black candidate and the first woman to be nominated by a major party in the southern state.  The 44-year-old lawyer will face a Republican candidate in November's high-stakes election.  A Democrat has not been elected governor in the deeply conservative state since 2003. Ms Abrams, who won 75 per cent of the vote in Tuesday's Democratic primary, said:  “We are writing the next chapter of Georgia’s history, where no one is unseen, no one is unheard and no one is uninspired”. President Trump won Georgia, whose capital city Atlanta is a magnet for immigrants from across the world, by just five percentage points in the 2016 presidential race.  Ms Abrams is a rising star of the Democrats' progressive wing Credit: AP However Ms Abrams has suggested she is unlikely to target rural white voters who have abandoned the Democratic party, telling voters that attempts to "convert" Republicans into Democrats had previously failed. Three other southern states -  Kentucky, Arkansas and Texas - also elected female nominees in Democratic primaries on Tuesday ahead of the midterm elections. The US currently has just six female governors, but the increase in successful female candidates in various political races has been seen in the context of the 'Me Too' and 'Times Up' movements.  That was certainly the view of Amy McGrath, a former fighter pilot, who won a Kentucky primary for a seat in the US House of Representatives. "It's more, this time, this climate, right now," she told CNN before her win against Jim Gray, mayor of Lexington. "It's very clear that people are looking for more women." Ms Abrams, who has a law degree from Yale University and a masters from the University of Texas is considered a rising star within Democratic party's progressive faction.  Hillary Clinton, whom Ms Abrams strongly backed in the presidential election, recorded a robocall for her ahead of Tuesday's race.  A number of other prominent Democrats, including Bernie Sanders and Kirsten Gillibrand, have backed the Georgia nominee. Ms Abrams, who was elected to Georgia's state House of Representative in 2006, has also written eight romantic novels under the pen name Selena Montgomery.

The engine under the hood of the 2019 Mercedes-AMG E53 sedan also produces the same 429 horsepower and 384 lb.-ft. of torque as it does elsewhere, but perhaps the standout point of this powerplant is the 48-volt ultra-mild hybrid assist system it also shares with its siblings.
