William and Kate are set to move back to London with their family. Kensington Palace has announced that Prince William will leave his job as an air ambulance pilot. The couple will focus on spending more time on their official duties to support the Queen - while Prince George and Princess Charlotte will start attending school in the capital. I wonder if it's going to be a little bit disappointing for William, because I know they have enjoyed the freedom of being away from the capital and doing what they want a little bit more.

But his wife Adriana and their son Gianfilipo, 7, were found on Friday morning and guided to safety. Just after nightfall it was announced six-year-old Ludovica had also been rescued. The news came at the end of a day of painstaking efforts to find signs of life amid the snow-covered remains of the three-storey spa hotel located on the eastern lower slopes of Monte Gran Sasso, the highest peak in central Italy. Another five survivors were still under the rubble with at least one of them injured. "We are in vocal contact with those survivors we are still trying to rescue. We have sent a video probe down and have seen them but there is not enough space to get anything to them, no food, water or blankets," said Italian firefighters' spokesman Luca Cari. 'Like they'd been reborn' Most of the guests were waiting to leave when the avalanche struck late Wednesday afternoon.

"When I arrived for this programme just now, I exchanged greetings with (former Malaysian footballers) Datuk Soh Chin Aun and Datuk Santokh Singh. It reminded me of my younger days, watching Pestabola Merdeka. "We were together in the stadium cheering the Malaysian team. At that time, the standard of football was much better than today," he said, adding that watching matches of national shuttler Datuk Lee Chong Wei had also united Malaysians. At the event, Najib announced the appointment of Chong Wei as Malaysia's 'Unity Icon' and the National Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Malaysia as the country's 'Unity Ambassador'. He then presented the appointment certificates.

Reuters Turboprop maker ATR has completed commercial negotiations with IranAir for the sale of at least 20 aircraft and expects to be able to sign a contract very soon, the head of the Franco-Italian aircraft maker said on Friday. The deal will come after Iran, which had not directly purchased a Western-built plane in nearly 40 years, signed contracts with Europe's Airbus ( AIR.PA ) and U.S. rival Boeing ( BA.N ) last year to purchase about 180 jets. That became possible after an agreement between Iran and six major powers lifted most international sanctions imposed on Tehran, in exchange for Iran curbing its nuclear program. We have concluded the negotiations and we should sign the contract imminently, ATR Chief Executive Christian Scherer said. Scherer was responding to some Iranian media reports on Friday that ATR had already announced the signature of the keenly awaited deal.

Expanding on their involvement in US-led coalition's military operations in Iraq and Syria, the Danish Parliament today approved the deployment of up to 60 special forces ground troops into Syria . The Danish government had sought, and failed, to get similar permission back in April, but won the vote this time. Details on what the Danish troops will be doing in Syria are unclear, but officials did say they would be operating in the area along the Iraq-Syria border. The government had previously announced they are ending their operation of F-16s over Syrian airspace. This makes Denmark the third member of the US-led coalition to send ground troops into Syria, following the United States itself and France. None of the nations has Syrian government permission to deploy troops into the country, which has at times been a sore spot. In addition to the ground troops, which add to the Danish troops already based in Iraq, Denmark has also announced that it will send a single navy frigate into the area, where it will operate alongside a US aircraft carrier.

The pomp and circumstance ended in pandemonium in the White House briefing room. President Donald Trump’s staff teased the press all afternoon on Friday about whether Trump would sign executive orders. “A possibility,” said Press Secretary Sean Spicer. “Potentially,” said strategic communications director Hope Hicks. “Dont start drinking yet,” said deputy Communications director Raj Shah. The back-and-forth ended with Trump signing an executive order allowing federal agencies to disregard provisions of the Affordable Care Act. In the hours leading up to Trump's signing, Spicer emerged repeatedly, without warning, to address the press in the briefing room, prompting reporters to run through the corridor and push each other out of the way. He announced, at first, that Trump would sign two executive orders. Then he announced there’d be three actions – and in the end, only one of them was actually an executive order.
