"If the ship cannot be salvaged then Russia surely will try to take away the sensitive equipment from on board by divers." 'Syria Express' Relations between Russia and Turkey hit their worst state since the Cold War in November 2015 when Turkish war planes shot down a Russian jet over the Syrian border. But there has since been a dramatic reconciliation, with Moscow and Ankara now engaged in a joint effort to bring peace to Syria despite standing on opposing sides of the conflict. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is due to hold his latest talks with Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in Russia on May 3. As a Black Sea littoral state, Russia is allowed to have its military ships pass through the Bosphorus under the 1936 Montreux Convention on the Straits. The intense traffic of Russian vessels to and from Syria — known as the Syrian Express — has caused immense curiosity in Istanbul where the warships pass through the heart of the city in full view of ship-spotters. — AFP

The protest resulted in authorities using pepper spray and batons against protesters who charged a police barricade. Charges include inciting disorderly conduct, unlawful assembly and obstructing police officers. Those arrested were subsequently released on bail , and will appear in court on May 5, the party says. Avery Ng of the League of Social Democrats, who was among those arrested, wrote on Facebook that it was the third time this year that police had taken him from his home into custody.

To deepen financial inclusion in the country, RBI had allowed small finance banks and payments banks to start services.

The White House never provided any documents related to what Flynn told the administration when he was vetted even though the committee formally requested it . So they must have a paper trail of evidence, Cummings added. I honestly do not understand why the White House is covering up for Michael Flynn. I watched [press secretary] Sean Spicer make all kinds of excuses about how hard it would be to comply with our requests. Cmon man. A third letter released shows the Pentagons inspector general announcement of yet another investigation of Flynns actions. Cummings said that Chaffetz, however, refused to have Flynn testify before their committee. Trump named Flynn to be national security adviser in mid-November. Flynn resigned from the position in mid-February. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

At the Rainy River development, Wolfson noted that productivity gains are expected through spring and summer, and start-up timelines were reiterated. But the timeline for the Schedule 2 permit receipt, a critical permit required to facilitate tailings storage past the 6-months of capacity provided by the starter tailings dam, have been revised and pushed back to January 2018, from November 2017, the analyst noted. The broker's 12-month target price of $4 is based on 1.6 times the broker's target NAV at a long term gold price of $1,300 an ounce. This is below its peers due to greater development and financial risks, said the broker.

REMEMBER why the "Trump bump" began, all the way back in November? The rationale for the surge in stockmarkets was that the new administration would cut taxes and allow American growth to accelerate. And so we waited for the details. When they came yesterday, it was only a one-page set of bullet points, containing around 200 words. If, as one expert pointed out, it had really taken 100 experts to come up with the plan, they averaged two words each. The response from the markets was a yawn. Analysts at Clear Treasury said that Much of yesterday was a non-event, markets were waiting to hear what came of Trump’s tax plans but there was certainly an air of disappointment when finally released. The S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average were slightly lower on the day, and the European markets have fallen today. Of course that could be related to the other story floating around yesterday—that America might withdraw from Nafta.

And after news segments, Trump will sometimes call his own advisers to discuss what he saw. No slight is too small to ignore. West Wing staffers have even fumed about news coverage of the Easter Egg Roll. First, it was that Trump’s White House wouldnt be smart enough to pull it off. Then, it was that no one would be there. And after the Easter Egg Roll went off without a hitch, “no one wanted to give us any credit,” said one senior administration official. It is part of a siege mentality that has taken hold, from the president down, with Trump and his associates believing their coverage has stayed just as bad — or gotten worse — since the campaign ended in November. Senior administration officials said they’ve never seen Trump angrier than when the media focused its attention on the crowd size at his inauguration. The darkest cloud shadowing the West Wing has been continuous questions about the Trump campaign’s connections to Russia.

Sales of the novel have surged since November's vote, according to US media, and it is currently third on Amazon's fiction bestseller list. Both "1984" and "Brave New World" have seen similar boosts. "I hate to say the story is newly relevant, as if it weren't for three decades," said James Poniewozik of the New York Times. "But face it: when you have a president who talks about women as if they were squeeze toys, who implied a tough female journalist was on her period, whose administration gathered a room full of male politicians to discuss women's health coverage — well, the viral marketing takes care of itself." Not resting on its laurels, Hulu has been building buzz by sending women dressed in the iconic handmaid's uniform of crimson dress and white bonnet to public events from San Diego Comic-Con and South by Southwest in Austin to the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books.
