Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam to withdraw extradition bill- BBC News



Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam has said she will withdraw the controversial extradition bill which triggered months of protests.

The proposal, introduced in April, would have allowed criminal suspects to be extradited to mainland China.

The bill was suspended in June when Ms Lam called it “dead”, but she stopped short of withdrawing it.

Full withdrawal is one of five key demands of protesters, who are also calling for full democratic rights.

Jeremy Corbyn, Boris Johnson and Jo Swinson react to the election results – BBC News



The prime minister said it would give him a mandate to “get Brexit done” and take the UK out of the EU next month.

Jeremy Corbyn said Labour had a “very disappointing night” and he would not fight a future election.

Labour have lost seats across the North, Midlands and Wales in places which backed Brexit in 2016.

Speaking after he was re-elected in Uxbridge, west London, with a slightly higher majority, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “It does look as though this One Nation Conservative government has been given a powerful new mandate to get Brexit done.”

Speaking at his election count in Islington North, where he was re-elected with a reduced majority, Mr Corbyn said Labour had put forward a “manifesto of hope” but “Brexit has so polarised debate it has overridden so much of normal political debate”.

Jailed spy's relief at going home for Christmas – BBC News



A Norwegian pensioner convicted of spying in Moscow says he was wrong to trust an intelligence officer who recruited him to pass on payment for secrets about Russia’s atomic submarine fleet.

Frode Berg has just returned home after complex negotiations led him being included in a spy swap between Russia and Lithuania.

His arrest and conviction for espionage has caused controversy in Norway, where many criticise the Nato country’s use of a civilian in risky intelligence operations – especially when tensions between the West and Russia are so high.

Sarah Rainsford has been to meet Frode Berg in Norway where he is preparing to return to his hometown.

London Bridge attack: Man shot dead after killing two – BBC News



Two people have died and several more injured in what police are describing as a terrorist incident on London Bridge. The attacker was later shot dead. Several members of the public managed to wrestle him to ground, and their bravery has been widely praised.
