    Six security officials have been killed in an attack in southwest Pakistan when their convoy came under heavy firing in a mountainous area near the border with Iran.

    Brexit: EU pledges to May unlikely to placate critics

    Image copyright Reuters Image caption It was a tough diplomatic test for Theresa May (3rd R) Led by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the other 27 leaders spent almost an hour last night asking Theresa May questions. What reassurances did she seek on the Irish backstop? How did she intend to get the Brexit deal through parliament? What was her vision for the future relationship between the UK and the EU? A diplomatic summary of the meeting seen by the BBC said her answers were “not really clear”. “Bad” and “pretty bad” is how it was described by some usually-optimistic diplomats.…

    Venom Is A Huge Hit With International Audiences

    Venom Writer Says Spider-Man Could Appear In A Sequel

    Before it was released, Sony’s Venom was surrounded with questions — like what universe does this take place in, does Spider-Man exist here, is it the world of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, and if the web-slinger isn’t in this universe, can Venom work without him? The latter question was answered, as Venom performed heroically at the box office and didn’t even have a Spider-Man cameo. Nevertheless, the Venom sequel could still see these two foes crossing paths, as Venom writer Jeff Pinkner explained: For someone who was being careful about not revealing too much, Jeff Pinkner certainly said a lot of…

    May says further Brexit talks with EU in coming days

    Brussels (AFP) – Prime Minister Theresa May said Friday that Britain and the EU would hold more talks in the coming days, denying reports that bloc leaders refused her plea for reassurances on her Brexit plan. She welcomed a statement issued by the other 27 EU leaders restating their position on arrangements for the Irish border, which has caused MPs in Britain to threaten to reject the deal. “As formal conclusions, these commitments have legal status and therefore should be welcomed,” she told reporters after a Brussels summit, but added: “MPs will require further assurances.” After talks with EU Council…
