1. Van rams crowd near London mosque

A van ploughed* into a crowd of Muslims near a London mosque on Monday, leaving one person dead and injuring 10 others in the second terror attack this month in the British capital.

Prime Minister Theresa May condemned the “sickening” incident, saying Britain’s determination to fight “terrorism, extremism and hatred... must be the same, whoever is responsible.”

The 48-year-old driver of the van, a white man who police believe acted alone, was detained by people at the scene before being arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

2. 7 sailors found dead aboard US destroyer

All seven bodies of U.S. sailors missing after a collision between the U.S. Navy’s guided missile destroyer* USS Fitzgerald and a Philippine container vessel have been found aboard the stricken destroyer, local media reported on Sunday.

According to Japan’s public broadcaster NHK, all seven bodies of the missing sailors were found aboard the destroyer in areas that had become flooded after the collision, such as a living space and a machine room.

The Navy said that rescuers had gained access to spaces that were damaged during the collision.

3. Leo Varadkar to be Irish prime minister

The son of an Indian immigrant who came out as gay in 2015 will be the next Irish prime minister, after he was voted leader of the country’s main governing party.

Leo Varadkar’s victory in the Fine Gael leadership contest on Friday, which took place after outgoing Prime Minister Enda Kenny announced his resignation last month, marks another significant step forward for equality in the country, after 2015’s gay marriage referendum*.

As well as becoming Ireland’s first gay prime minister, Varadkar, 38, will also become the country’s youngest leader and the first from an ethnic minority background.

4. 57 dead in Portugal wildfires

Raging* forest fires in central Portugal killed at least 57 people, many of them trapped in their cars as flames swept over a road, in what the prime minister on Sunday called “the biggest tragedy of human life that we have known in years.”

Nearly 60 other people were injured, including four firefighters and a seriously injured minor, said Interior Ministry official Jorge Gomes.

A lightning strike is believed to have sparked the blaze in the Pedrogao Grande area after investigators found a tree that was hit during a “dry thunderstorm.”

5. Colombia: Bombing at mall kills 3

A homemade bomb placed in a women’s bathroom rocked one of the busiest shopping centers in Bogota, Colombia’s capital, killing three people on Saturday, including a French woman, and wounding nine others.

Police said a potent* explosive, possibly made of ammonium nitrate*, had caused the destruction.

Mayor Enrique Penalosa called it a “cowardly terrorist bombing,” and attention immediately focused on the National Liberation Army, which is the last rebel movement still active in Colombia.

6. Singapore PM denounced by siblings

A feud between the children of Singapore’s late founding leader has intensified after two siblings publicly accused their brother Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong of disobeying their father’s last wishes and abusing his powers.

“We have felt threatened by Hsien Loong’s misuse of his position and influence over the Singapore government and its agencies to drive his personal agenda,” read a statement posted online by younger brother Hsien Yang and younger sister Wei Ling.

The siblings’ grievances largely center on the fate of the family’s home after their father’s death.(SD-Agencies)
