1. First human head transplant ‘success’

The world’s first human head transplant has been carried out on a corpse in China, according to a controversial Italian doctor who said at a press conference in Vienna on Friday that he and his team are now ready to perform the surgery on a living person.

Dr. Sergio Canavero, chief of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation* Group, said the operation was carried out by a team led by Dr. Ren Xiaoping, who last year successfully grafted* a head onto a monkey’s body.

2. Elizabeth II marks 70th wedding anniversary

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip celebrated 70 years of marriage on Monday, becoming Britain’s first reigning couple to mark a platinum* wedding anniversary.

The decades-spanning marriage of the Queen — the nation’s longest serving sovereign — has outlasted* those of all prior British monarchs*.

The royal couple will not hold any public events but have invited family and friends to Windsor Castle for a private dinner, according to media reports.

3. Signals offer hope in hunt for missing sub

Hopes of finding survivors from a missing Argentine submarine with 44 crew members aboard have been revived after the navy had detected what could be distress calls*.

There has been no contact with the ARA San Juan since November 15, prompting Buenos Aires to launch an air and sea search with help from countries including Brazil, Britain, Chile, Uruguay and the United States.

The search has, however, been complicated by stormy conditions, Argentine navy spokesman Enrique Balbi said on Saturday.

4. Hariri to return to Lebanon as crisis simmers

Prime Minister Saad Hariri said he will return to Lebanon for the Independence Day celebrations today and explain his situation, after his shocking resignation announcement in Saudi Arabia sparked turmoil*.

Speaking after talks in Paris on Saturday with French President Emmanuel Macron, who is seeking to broker a way out of the crisis, Hariri said he would “make known my position” once back in Beirut.

5. US troops in Japan banned from drinking

U.S. military personnel in Okinawa have been restricted to base and banned from drinking alcohol after a Marine* was arrested over a crash that killed a Japanese man.

Police on the southern Japanese island arrested 21-year-old Nicholas James-McLean on Sunday on suspicion of negligent driving resulting in injury or death and driving under the influence of alcohol, said Kazuhiko Miyagi of the Okinawa police. (SD-Agencies)
