There has also been speculation that the plan to amend citizenship laws, which was disclosed in February, could affect second-generation Australians who carry only one passport.

"I've lost the race haven't I?" the disconsolate driver enquired over the team radio after rejoining in third place behind Rosberg and Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, neither of whom pitted.

    Puddles of blood and bullet shells are some of the remnants of an intense gunfight on a western Mexico ranch that killed 42 criminal suspects and one police officer.

  • Next-generation plane engines take a LEAP towards delivery

    If there's one key selling point that aerospace giants Airbus and Boeing have both been using in marketing their new aircraft, it is fuel efficiency. It is in fact largely down to French company Safran and GE, whose joint venture CFM International is making the LEAP motors that will power most of the next-generation of the planes which will be the future workhorses of airlines. The promise of 15 to 20 percent fuel savings moved closer as LEAP engines made their first flight tests that are a key step for the Airbus320neo to enter service next year and Boeing's B737 MAX in 2017 as planned.

  • Abandoned Tube station used by Churchill awaits new tenant

    An abandoned Underground station used by Winston Churchill as a bunker during World War II could become London's latest go-to bar or gallery under a plan launched by the city's transport agency. The facade has lost its sign but kept the traditional crimson-red tiles once used for stations on the Underground, the oldest metro system in the world. Now Transport for London (TfL) hopes it will be the first of seven or eight off-limits empty stations under the capital to be leased for commercial use.

In that six minute opening period on Saturday Bogut, just days ago named one of the NBA's best defensive players, scored 10 of the Warriors' first 17 points.

  • Iraq regains ground from Islamic State; mass deaths reported in Palmyra

    BAGHDAD/BEIRUT (Reuters) - Iraqi forces recaptured territory from advancing Islamic State militants near the recently-fallen city of Ramadi on Sunday, while in Syria the government said the Islamists had killed hundreds of people since capturing the town of Palmyra. The fall of Ramadi and Palmyra, on opposite ends of the vast territory controlled by Islamic State fighters, were the militant group's biggest successes since a U.S.-led coalition launched an air war to stop them last year. The near simultaneous victories against the Iraqi and Syrian armies have forced Washington to examine its strategy, which involves bombing from the air but leaving fighting on the ground to local forces in both countries.
