HONG KONG: Marchers against a new security law clashed with police yesterday.
The controversial legislation toughening restrictions on subversion and foreign-funded activity has been brought in following a year of protests and anti-Beijing riots that have seen citizens set alight and buildings and businesses smashed.
Police said marchers were breaking lockdown rules on large gatherings.
SPAIN: Thousands of Vox party supporters drove cars and motorbikes through Madrid and other cities on Saturday protesting against lockdown.
The far-right party says the government is lying about the scale of the pandemic and has violated people’s rights by making them stay at home.
It called its protest “the caravan for Spain and liberty.” Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez asked them to “ respect the criteria, rules, and decisions that health authorities have made.”
PALESTINE: Gaza reported its first Covid-19 death on Saturday, raising fears that an outbreak in the besieged enclave could be impossible to contain.
Authorities said the deceased was a 77-year-old woman who had underlying health problems and had been placed at a special field hospital near the Rafah border crossing point upon arriving from Egypt.
Gaza’s health system is crippled by the Israeli and Egyptian blockade.
RUSSIA: An alligator rumoured to have belonged to Hitler has died aged 84 in Moscow.
Saturn was born in the US and sent as a hatchling to Berlin Zoo, from which he escaped following a bombing raid in 1943. He was found in 1946 by British soldiers and given to the Soviet Union as a gift.
Moscow Zoo said the longstanding rumour that he had belonged to Hitler was baseless and that anyway “animals are not involved in war and politics and it is absurd to blame them for human sins.”
