His arrest may have an impact on upcoming Indian election

due to take place in May.

The discovery of the alleged fraud and Modi’s refusal to return to India to face criminal charges has in

creased pressure on Prime Minister Narendra Modi — no relation to Nirav Modi — who promised to fight corruption in India.

Tuesday’s arrest and the possibility of extradition could help to improve the Prime Minister’s tarnished image.

Rahul Gandhi, leader of the principle opposition party Congress, has repeatedly attacked PM Modi on his failure to bring fugitives back to India.

In 2016, liquor baron Vijay Mallya left the country owning an estimated $1.6 billion to 17 Indian banks.

The process for Mallya’s extradition to India is ongoing. He has denied fleeing the country ov

er his debts and described charges of fraud and money laundering as “false, fabricated and baseless.”

At smaller services, shovels are used to move the dirt. So

many people attended Wednesday’s service that Akil said guests were invited to throw a small handful each.

Zaid was too weak to hold a shovel, Akil said, so one was taken to him, piled with dirt.

‘It’s their names we need to keep telling’

Zaid stayed to accept condolences before being taken back to Christchurch Hospital, A

kil said. It’s likely to be some time before he’s well enough to return to Cashmere High School, which his brother also attended.

Ardern visited Cashmere High on Wednesday to address the students who’ve been payi

ng tribute to Hamza and another classmate who was killed, Sayyad Milne, 14. Former student Tariq Omar, 24, also died.

New Zealand terror suspect planned third attack, police chief says

“You know some of the young people who lost their lives on Friday,” Ardern told the students. “It’s their names and their stories we need to keep telling.”

The prime minister invited questions from the assembly. The first was: “How are you?”

“Thank you for asking,” Ardern said. “I’m very sad.”

New Zealand will fall silent for two minutes this Friday to remember the victims of the massacre.

The call to prayer will be also broadcast over national television and radio uniting a country wracked by grief one week on.

After rejecting May’s Brexit deal last week, MPs voted in favor

  tension to the withdrawal process, given the unlikelihood of agreeing a deal before Mar

ch 29. May is expected to ask the remaining 27 EU member states for a delay at this week’s summit.

  It’s possible the EU may propose a long extension to the Brexit process and require the UK to take part in the upcoming European elections in May.

  Downing Street has used the prospect of a lengthy delay — which could be used to force a second

referendum — to try to persuade Brexiteer lawmakers that they risk losing Brexit altogether if they don’t vo

te for May’s deal.The man who opened fire on two New Zealand mosques last week may have succeeded in killing 50 pe

ople, but the country’s leader has promised to deny him the one thing he truly wanted: Notoriety.

  ”You will never hear me mention his name,” Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern told the New Zealand Parliament Tuesday.

  ”He is a terrorist, he is a criminal, he is an extremist, but he will, when I speak, be nameless, and

to others I implore you: Speak the names of those who were lost rather than the name of the man who took t

hem. He may have sought notoriety but we in New Zealand will give him nothing — not even his name.”

The day after the attack in Christchurch, Ardern wore a h

  ijab as she stood in the center of a room, surrounded by families desperate to hear words of reassurance. They were tired, worried and m

any were grieving loved ones presumed killed in the hail of bullets fired by a man who singled them out for their beliefs.

  Even before she said a word, Ardern’s simple decision to cover

her hair served to show families she respected them and wanted to ease their pain.

  ”People were quite surprised. I saw people’s faces when she was wearing the hijab — th

ere were smiles on their faces,” said Ahmed Khan, a survivor of the attack who lost his uncle at the Al Noor mosque.

  Ali Akil, a member of Syrian Solidarity New Zealand who came to Christc

hurch to support the community, said wearing the hjiab was “a symbolic thing.”

  ”It’s saying I respect you, what you believe, and I’m here to help,” he said. “I’m very impressed.”

On Tuesday Ardern hinted at major changes to come in light

  of the terror attack, especially when it comes to New Zealand’s gun laws.

  New Zealand Prime Minister says, ‘Our gun laws will change’

  The Prime Minister had previously announced that a government inquiry will look into the circumstances leading up to Friday’s attack.

  The inquiry will investigate what agencies knew — or should have known — about th

e gunman’s access to weapons or any impediments into the sharing of information, she said.

  Australian Brenton Harris Tarrant, 28, was charged with

murder on Saturday. He is believed to be the only person responsible for the attacks.

  Tarrant lived in New Zealand’s southern city of Duned

in, around 225 miles from Christchurch. Officials said he had no criminal history in New Zeala

nd or Australia and had not drawn the attention of the intelligence community for extremist views.Tarrant is esco

rted into Christchurch District Court on Saturday. The judge ruled pictures of the suspect in court must have his face blurred.

Authorities said the assailant obtained the firearms used

  in the attack through legal means. Ardern and Deputy Prime Mi

nister Winston Peters announced Monday evening that the cabinet has agreed to ch

anges to New Zealand’s gun laws “in principle,” but the exact measures have not been revealed.

  While acknowledging that “for a short period” the planned amendments might create uncertainty for some gun own

ers, Ardern said she believes “the vast majority” of New Zealand’s gun owners agree that change is needed.

  Tech companies face increased scrutiny

  Some of Ardern’s toughest rhetoric was reserved for social

media and its ability to quickly disseminate “ideas and language of division and hate.”

  ”We cannot simply sit back and accept that these platforms

just exist and that what is said on them is not the responsibility of the place where they are pu

blished. They are the publisher. Not just the postman. There cannot be a case of all profit no responsibility,” she said.

ter this team of players will still be remembered for what they did at the World Cup.”

Around 8,000 spectators packed into the arena to witness the draw, whi

ch was conducted by Chinese pop star Yang Chaoyue, a member of the idol group Rock

After going 0-5 at the 2016 Rio Olympics and failing to qualify for the last World Cup, in 2

014 in Spain, Asian Games champion China is under heavy pressure to deliver an improved performance at home.

Should China emerge from Group A, it will face one of the top two

teams from a tougher-looking Group B, which features Argentina, Russia, South Korea and Nigeria.

Cups, slides, beds, hotels, salons and medical care are creating a huge pet market worth multibillion yuan

was three times that of 2013, and forecast it would grow to 472.3 billion yuan by 2023.

The pet cat market segment, worth 60 billion yuan, is the second la

rgest after the pet dog segment (98.5 billion yuan). It is predicted to be the most vibrant one.
