That was a golden opportunity! 18 mins: Xhaka angry There are some tackles flying about and Xhaka is angry at being penalised after coming together with Son. Can he keep his cool this afternoon? A Spurs corner comes to nothing and Tripper fires a cross into the crowd. 15 mins: Cagey start Neither side has been able to impose themselves on the game so far, with plenty of passing around the midfield but few chances for either set of forwards. Spurs have had most of the possession so far, but have yet to find a killer ball. Arsenal will probably be content with the way things are going so far. 11 mins: Penalty shout Arsenal attack and a ball into the box from Sanchez is almost collected by Gibbs, but Lloris is out quickly and gets a hand to the ball. Gibbs goes down under his challenge but there's no penalty. 5 mins: Spurs corners Spurs are keen to test Arsenal's wing backs, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain in particular.

GOXHILL residents have made a last-ditch attempt to save their village local the Brocklesby Hunt by asking North Lincolnshire Council to impose a compulsory purchase order on the property. Earlier this week, after a door to door canvass, campaigners handed over a 785-name petition to council chiefs. The petitioners believe an order would enable then to buy the pub, which has been earmarked for housing. Funds have been raised in the village to convert the Brocklesby Hunt into bed and...

about what Trump is going to do, far more worried than the North Koreans are. So on Monday Donald Trump said we had to do something, I agree with them. The status quo in North Korea is also unacceptable. The council must be prepared to impose.

leaders were in prison. The Conservative Government refused to impose sanctions on South Africa. They entertained the leaders of the regime. They banned protests outside the South African Embassy in London. Being a member of Parliament helped bring attention to that ban and the wider cause of South Africa's liberation. It also got a group of us arrested. But the space.

"Fighting alongside their Afghan partners, Josh and Cameron proved themselves willing to go into danger and impose a brutal cost on enemies in their path," Mattis said. "Our nation owes them an irredeemable debt, and we give our deepest condolences to their families." The Pentagon estimates that about 1,000 IS fighters remain in Afghanistan. The jihadists established a foothold there in early 2015 and their numbers now are about half what they were at their peak. "If confirmed, the death of the emir (Hasib) and his associates will significantly degrade ISIS-K operations in Afghanistan and help reach our goal of destroying them in 2017," US-Forces Afghanistan said. — AFP

The United States continues to send wildly conflicting signs on their intentions toward North Korea, with President Trump following up yesterday's assurances that no war would hapen so long as the situation is manageable with a warning that there is a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea. Absolutely . Trump continued to suggest that China might be able to resolve the situation, saying that President Xi certainly doesn't want to see turmoil and death. In the meantime, he said he hopes North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is rational, despite Secretary of State Rex Tillerson saying just the day prior that the US is confident Kim makes rational decisions. Speaking of Tillerson, yesterday's talk of patience and keeping North Korea manageable for as long as possible appears to have been replaced today with calls to impose painful new measures on the country, while warning against showing patience because time will run out.

While it wants the North to end its nuclear weapons program, it is wary of destabilizing a traditional ally whom it fought with in the 1950-53 Korean War. Tillerson's told nations to downgrade their diplomatic relations with Pyongyang and increase its financial isolation. We must levy new sanctions on DPRK entities and individuals supporting its weapons and missile programs, and tighten those already in place, he said, using an acronym for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. He said the U.S. would not hesitate to impose sanctions on non-American companies helping the North and described China as having unique economic leverage. In an interview Thursday, Tillerson said Beijing has threatened to impose sanctions on North Korea if it conducts further nuclear tests. The North conducted two last year and satellite imagery in recent weeks has suggested another could be coming.

Additional patience will only mean acceptance of a nuclear North Korea. The more we bite our time the sooner we will run out of it. The time has come for us to put new pressure on North Korea to abandon this dangerous path. I urge this council to act before North Korea does. We must work together to adopt a new approach and impose.

"I urge this council to act before North Korea does. We must work together to adopt a new approach and impose increased diplomatic and economic pressures on the North Korean regime. The goal of the U.S. was not regime change, Tillerson said, but before the U.S. will even consider talks, North Korea must take "concrete steps" to cease its illegal weapons program. To that end, he called on the U.N. member states to implement their commitments to earlier resolutions toward North Korea, called on countries to suspend or downgrade diplomatic relations with North Korea, and called for increasing North Korea's financial isolation through new sanctions on DPRK entities and individuals supporting their weapons and missile programs. "We will not hesitate to sanction third country entities and individuals supporting the DPRK's illegal activities. We must bring maximum economic pressure by severing trade relationships that directly fund the DPRK's nuclear missile program," he said.

Beijing would consider an oil embargo against Pyongyang in the case of further nuclear tests by its reclusive neighbour, according to diplomatic analysts. A suspension of oil supplies from Beijing could deal a much harder blow to Pyongyang than any of the existing sanctions, possibly paralysing the government of Kim Jong-un. But analysts said China was unlikely to impose further sanctions on North Korea without a mandate from the UN Security Council, given Beijings sweeping ban on coal...
