‘United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres says Washington made a “serious mistake” by blocking a former Palestinian prime minister from heading the global body’s political mission in Libya.

“I believe that it’s essential for everybody to understand that people serving the UN are serving in their personal capacities. They don’t represent a country or a government,” said Guterres, while addressing the Munich Security Conference held on Saturday.

Last week, the United States blocked the appointment of former Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad (seen below) to lead the UN mission in Libya in a move intended to reassure the Tel Aviv regime of the new US administration’s support for Israel.’

‘A massive budget crisis has forced a Texas school district to consider radical measures including suggestions to use students as janitors and having students pay to play sports.

The Frisco Independent School District (ISD) serves over 56,000 students in the Dallas area, but to what extent in the future remains to be seen. Between a loss of state funding and voters refusing to pay an extra 13 cents in property taxes, the district has been left to devise its own methods of fixing its budget.

When it comes to school budget cuts, it’s rare for there to be an easy or simple solution. However, one particularly interesting idea made its way into Thursday’s brainstorming session: “reasonable ‘self-service’ programs to reduce custodial needs.” The suggestion essentially means that the district is being asked to consider having students use time during the school day to take out the garbage.’

‘Michael Flynn, the national security adviser to President Trump, resigned late Monday over revelations about his potentially illegal contacts with the Russian ambassador to the United States, and his misleading statements about the matter to senior Trump administration officials.

Flynn stepped down amid mounting pressure on the Trump administration to account for its false statements about Flynn’s conduct after The Washington Post reported Monday that the Justice Department had warned the White House last month that Flynn had so mischaracterized his communications with the Russian diplomat that he might be vulnerable to blackmail by Moscow.

In a letter to Trump, Flynn said he had “inadvertently briefed the Vice President Elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian ambassador. I have sincerely apologized to the president and the vice president.”’

‘Labour’s leader in the House of Lords has pledged not to hold up or “frustrate” the triggering of Article 50 – as the Government’s bill moves to the House of Lords for scrutiny.

The Bill going through Parliament at the moment is required to give the Government the power to start Brexit negotiations, which Theresa May has said she wants to do by the end of March.

Baroness [Angela] Smith pledged no “extended ping-ping” between the House of Commons and the House of Lords, but said peers would try to add “legitimate” amendments to the Bill. Labour’s peers have tabled a number of ideas they say could make the Brexit process run more efficiently, including the call for a meaningful vote on the final deal.’

‘People have staged demonstrations across Bahrain to express their strong condemnation over the killings of three pro-democracy activists as the ruling Al Khalifah regime’s crackdown on dissidents and human rights campaigners continues unabated in the kingdom.

On Thursday evening, protesters took to the streets in the northwestern village of Bani Jamra, chanting slogans in protest at the deaths of 29-year-old Rida al-Ghisra, Mahmoud Yahya, 22, and 35-year-old Mostafa Abedali, whom regime forces shot dead off Khalifah Bin Salman Port, east of the capital Manama, at dawn.

The protesters carried banners and photos of the trio, and shouted slogans against Bahraini King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifah. They held the monarch fully responsible for the killings.’
