Tens of thousands of Hungarians took to the streets in Budapest for a second consecutive Saturday to protest against newly reelected Prime Minister Viktor Orban. Campaigning hard against immigration, the 54-year-old Orban's overwhelming victory April 8 saw his Fidesz party secure around half the vote. As part of sweeping reforms since he came into power in 2010, Orban has turned the public media channels into what his critics call "government mouthpieces".

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have joined the Australian Prime Minister at a London reception ahead of the Invictus Games in Sydney later this year. Harry and his bride-to-be will meet servicemen and women from both Britain and Australia, some of whom have previously competed in the international sporting event. The couple will also learn more about preparations for this year's games at the reception hosted by Malcolm Turnbull and his wife Lucy at Australia House on Saturday. Harry and Meghan will meet Invictus competitors Credit: PA More than 500 competitors - made up of sick and injured military and veterans - from 18 nations are expected to compete at the Invictus Games in Sydney between October 20 and 27. It is expected Harry, who is patron of the Invictus Games Foundation which oversees the delivery of the tournament, will travel to Australia for the event with Ms Markle, who will by then be his wife.

The trip to Sydney is also likely to see the couple embark on their Commonwealth duties, meeting young Australians to discuss issues close to their hearts after Prince Harry was appointed youth ambassador.  Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attend a reception hosted by Malcolm Turnbull for the Invictus Games Credit: AP pool Servicemen and women at the Invictus launch praised Prince Harry for changing lives ahead of this year's Games in Sydney. Gareth Paterson, from Newcastle, who is leaving the army after 24 years' service, said: "You can't really fault the guy, he puts in so much effort.

Jo Hursey, 42, from Herefordshire, who knows Harry from her 23 years in the army, said: "I don't think he realises how many lives he's changed. "He's changed mine for the better." The 42-year-old said she tried to persuade Ms Markle - who wore a green dress by Self-Portrait and an Alexander McQueen blazer - to try out "sitting volleyball", saying the former Suits actress seemed keen.

He said: "It will be a formidable contest. Five hundred athletes ... will all be competing in a country and a city which will applaud them for their service and cheers them on to greater heights." He said the spirit of the games was embodied by people like Curtis McGrath, a young Australian combat medic who lost both legs in Afghanistan before winning the canoeing Paralympic gold in Rio de Janeiro two years ago. Chelsea Pensioner Marjorie Cole, who taught cooking in the Women's Royal Army Corps for around 15 years, said: "It's absolutely fantastic what Harry is doing for disabled veterans.

"I was at the first Invictus Games at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and it was something I'll never forget." The prince recognised Ms Cole in the hall and stopped for a chat, with the 73-year-old later saying: "He's very charming and said 'nice to see you again'. I'm thrilled for him and Meghan." Asked if she would be flying out to Sydney, Ms Cole replied: "I've got to win the lottery first." Sydney is the fourth city to host the Games, after London in 2014, Orlando in 2016, and Toronto in 2017.

Soros foundation attacks 'stifling' Orban law as Hungary exit looms

By Marton Dunai BUDAPEST (Reuters) - The foundation of Budapest-born financier George Soros accused Hungary's right-wing leadership on Friday of trying to stifle non-government groups, but said it would decide whether to leave the country only after parliament passes a "Stop Soros" law. Prime Minister Viktor Orban, whose draft law has provoked legal action by the European Union, made clear he would be glad to see the back of the foundation after saying it promotes mass immigration against the will of the Hungarian people. Critics of the nationalist premier, who scored a landslide election victory this month, said a departure of the Open Society Foundations (OSF) would mark a milestone in a slide towards authoritarian rule as he cracks down on independent centres of thought and activism.

IMF chief Christine Lagarde on Thursday called on India's leader to focus more on women in the wake of the "revolting" rape and murder of two young girls. While she praised the nation's economic performance, "what has happened is just revolting," Lagarde said when asked about the incidents in the past week involving a seven- and an eight-year-old girl. "I would hope that the Indian authorities, starting with Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi, pay more attention, because it is needed for the women of India," a visibly angry Lagarde said.

Added: 21.04.2018 15:05 | 0 views | 0 comments

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday that "at least half a dozen" countries were considering moving their embassies to Jerusalem following the U.S. decision to do so. U.S. President Donald Trump announced in December that the United States recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, infuriating even Washington’s Arab allies and dismaying Palestinians who want the eastern part of the city as their capital. The U.S. Embassy is due to relocate to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv on May 14, the date on which Israel declared its independence in 1948.
