FaviconTotal solar eclipse: When is it, where is it happening and how to watch in the UK 20 Aug 2017, 12:26 pm

Total solar eclipse: When is it, where is it happening and how to watch in the UKWhat's happening? On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will witness an eclipse of the sun for the first time in 99 years, where the Moon will pass in front of the Sun casting darkness across swathes of the Earth's surface. Dubbed the Great American Eclipse, the moment will see the Sun, the Moon and the Earth become perfectly aligned in a once-in-a-lifetime celestial spectacle seen from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean. Although we won't see a perfect alignment in the UK, we will be able to see a partial eclipse (where the moon covers only a part of the sun). 10 amazing places in America to watch the 2017 solar eclipse Who will see it? Everyone in North America, parts of South America, Africa and Europe - including the UK - will see at least a partial solar eclipse, where the moon covers only a part of the sun. However, 14 states across the United States will experience a total solar eclipse with more than two minutes of darkness descending in the middle of the day over the course of 100 minutes. More than 12 million Americans live inside the path of totality and more than half of the nation live within 400 miles of it. Millions more are expected to travel to cities along the path to witness the phenomenon.  Where and when to see the eclipse What causes an eclipse? The diameter of the Sun is 400 times that of the Moon but it lies 400 times further away - which means if you are in exactly the right alignment on the surface of the Earth at the right time, you will see the two celestial bodies overlap exactly. What creates a total solar eclipse Where can I see the eclipse in the UK? Sadly Brits won't get a total eclipse like our friends across the pond, but we will be treated to a slight partial eclipse which will still be worth watching.  It will be visible in parts of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland from around 19:35 on August 21 - but make sure you're in a spot where there's no cloud.  UK eclipse circumstances for August 21 2017 What areas will see total blackout? Anyone within the path of totality will see the sky become dark for several minutes as the moon completely covers the sun. The path is relatively thin, around 70 miles wide, and stretches from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. It will first be seen at Lincoln Beach, Oregon at 9:05 PDT, with totality beginning at 10:16 PDT. Over the next 90 minutes, it will cross through Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and North and end near Charleston, South Carolina at 14:28 EDT. The lunar shadow will leave the US at 04:09 EDT. Its longest duration will be near Carbondale, Illinois, where the sun will be completely covered for two minutes and 40 seconds. What time can I see the total eclipse? Here are the mid-eclipse times for some of the major towns and cities along the path of totality, according to Nasa. All times are local.  Where to see it | The Great American solar eclipse Will there be a live stream? Yes - Nasa will host an Eclipse Megacast for four hours during the eclipse which will be picked up by local, national and international TV stations. You can also follow all the action via the Telegraph. How can I see it safely? Never look directly at the Sun, even through sunglasses or dark material such as a bin liner or photographic negative. Makeshift filters may not screen out the harmful infrared radiation that can burn the retina of the eye risking permanent eye damage and blindness. Also, viewers must never use binoculars or a telescope. Wear special eclipse viewing glasses - not ordinary sunglasses - or construct a simple pinhole camera which projects an image of the Sun onto a blank piece of paper. Solar eclipse: how to watch the eclipse safely When will Britain next see a solar eclipse? There was a pretty spectacular eclipse in Britain in March 2015, but the last total eclipse in the UK was in August 1999. You might be waiting a while for the next decent one too - it won't take place until August 12, 2026. On that date up to 95 per cent of the Sun will be obscured. Britain will not see a total solar eclipse until September 23, 2090. How we watched the 1999 solar eclipse - in 90 seconds 01:42 Total solar eclipses in history Eclipses have both fascinated and terrified civilisations for centuries. When King Henry I of England, the son of William the Conqueror, died in 1133, his death happened to coincide with a total solar eclipse plummeting the nation into darkness for four minutes and 38 seconds. Historian William of Malmesbury wrote in 1140 that "the darkness was so great that people at first thought the world was ending."

The arrest of the German national in Granada was part of a "targeted hunt against critics of the Turkish government living abroad in Europe," Akhanli's lawyer Ilias Uyar told magazine Der Spiegel, which first reported Akhanli's detention.

FaviconBarcelona attack: Police raid home of imam linked to cell behind twin terror attacks  19 Aug 2017, 3:00 pm

Barcelona attack: Police raid home of imam linked to cell behind twin terror attacks Moussa Oukabir confirmed shot dead in Cambrils ​Cambrils shoot out ' was like a horror movie'  Who are the victims? British boy, seven, among the missing Who are the suspects in the Spanish terror attacks? Everything we know about first attack on Spain in 13 years Catalan investigators on Saturday raided the house of an imam in the town of Ripoll they believe may have overseen the cell which killed 14 people in twin terrorist attacks in Barcelona and the seaside resort of Cambrils. Police are trying to piece together how a cell composed of multiple sets of brothers from the same sleepy Pyreenes town came to carry out the devastating attacks, amid reports they planned to blow up the Sagrada Familia.  The home of the imam, named as Abdelbaki Es Satty, was raided overnight from Friday to Saturday, with officers reportedly seeking - among other evidence - DNA samples which might link him to a building in the town of Alcanar believed to be where the attack was prepared. The mosque in Ripoll, where the imam preached Credit:  JEFF GILBERT El Pais, a leading Spanish daily, said they were investigating whether the imam, who apparently left Ripoll around a month ago, might be one of two dead bodies discovered in the Alcanar house. Sources involved in the investigation told El Confidencial they believed he was a "spiritual or idealogical leader" to the cell members, radicalising them and helping them to plan the attacks.  The sources cited the lack of previous terror links among the group, and said they had detected a number of trips by some members to France and Morocco. Police did not officially confirm or deny the reports. Cambrils suspect taunts police before being shot 00:26 A spokesperson for the Catalan force told the Telegraph they were working on the “principle hypothesis” that the cell was comprised of 12 members, 11 of whom have now been identified and hail almost exclusively from Ripoll. Five members died at the hands of police in the attack on Cambrils late on Thursday night, which killed one woman and injured several others. Moussa Oukabir, 17, Mohammed Hychami, 23 and Said Aallaa, 19, all believed to be of Moroccan origin, have been officially identified as among the attackers killed. The other two have been named by Spanish press as Omar Hychami, Mohammed’s brother, and Houssaine Aouyaaquoub, who is presumed to be a family member of Younes Aouyaaquoub, the suspected driver of the Ramblas van who remains on the run. Police raided this flat in Ripoll where the missing imam, Abdelbaki Es Satty, is believed to have lived Credit:  Francisco Seco/AP Another four have been detained, including Driss Oukabir, Moussa’s 23-year-old brother, whose identification was found in the van that attacked Barcelona’s Ramblas but who claims it was stolen by his sibling. Almost all of the men lived in close proximity in Ripoll - Oukabir and Mohammed Hychami in the same building - while Allaa lived in the nearby town of Ribes de Freser.  The head of the Ripoll mosque at which the Satty preached told reporters that he had arrived just over a year ago and left at the end of June, when he asked for three months' holiday to visit Morocco and was denied.  Inside the home of imam Abdelbaki Es Satty, in Ripoll Credit:  PAU BARRENA/ AFP The imam, said to be a father of about 45 years old, had never said or done anything to prompt concern, said the mosque chief, Ali Yassine.  "We never heard anything about him or received any (complaint) until this happened, and we don't know how this happened, this has fallen on us like a stone," he said. But, he added, no one could know what was happening "inside a person's head". The suspected cell members rarely came to the mosque, but from their little interaction had seemed like "normal boys", Mr Yassine explained, adding that he had only ever seen Younes Aouyaaquoub "three or four times". Mosque president Ali Yassine talks to the media after the attacks Credit:  JEFF GILBERT Mr Yassine said he was not aware of any lessons the iman was conducting outside the mosque, insisting that if he had learned that was happening, he would have prevented it and gone to the police.  The mosque president emphatically condemned this week's attacks, saying terrorism were the acts of "crazy people".  "Our religion does not permit us to do this ever, our religion totally condemns these terrorist actions," he said. "Our religion is peace, Islam is peace." What remains unclear is exactly what led the cell to Alcanar, a town almost 200 miles to the south, where police believe they were preparing an attack initially intended to involve explosives. Alcanar and Cambrils both sit in a coastal area south of Barcelona that has gained a reputation as a Salafist hotbed after a number of terror arrests in recent years. It was in Salou, adjacent to Cambrils, that one of the 9/11 attackers, Mohammed Atta, held a meeting with a key al-Qaeda figure. But its connection to Ripoll is unknown. Moussa Oukabir, 18, was shot dead by police Police have found two bodies in the rubble of the house after a blast in the early hours of Thursday morning, which was initially suspected to be caused by a gas leak in a drugs lab. One of the men injured in the blast, a Spanish national from the enclave of Melilla in Morocco, was later arrested as a suspected cell member.  Investigators at the site, where controlled explosions were carried out on Friday and Saturday, later discovered a stockpile of explosive material including more than 100 gas canisters. Local media reported that a crude and unstable homemade explosive known as acetone peroxide was being produced in the house. The explosives - known as the 'Mother of Satan' are favoured among jihadis and were used in the 7/7 bombings.  Barcelona terror attack Neighbours speculated that recent high temperatures in the heatwave known as Lucifer might have triggered the explosion.  That may have saved Barcelona from an even more devastating attack. Catalan police told the Telegraph they believed the group had been preparing to use the explosives, either against one target or in multiple coordinated attacks. They could not confirm or deny reports in two Spanish newspapers that the cell's "Plan A" was to blow up the Sagrada Familia, the iconic Barcelona cathedral designed by Antonio Gaudi. Residents of Ripoll - a town of just 11,000, around a tenth of whom are of North African origin - said that Moussa Oukabir and the imam disappeared around the same time. At the Cafeteria Esperanza, which the imam used to frequent, three Moroccan men playing chess told the Telegraph that he had been in Ripoll for several years before leaving a month ago. Police officers by the upturned car used to target civilians in a second terrorist attack in Cambrils early on Friday Credit: LLUIS GENE/AFP One of the men, who did not wish to be named, said that the imam used to give talks behind the cafe. "We do not know where he went, just that he had another job somewhere. My friend told me that he went elsewhere in Spain." At the home of Younes Aouyaaquoub, an elderly neighbour told The Telegraph that she would not have believed the teenager capable of such violence. "To me, he has always been a good boy, no trouble. I not understand why he would do this. I am angry," she said. Others in the neighbourhood also expressed disbelief that so many young men from the town could have been drawn into terrorism. Speaking to The Telegraph, a shop assistant at a tobacconist close to where Moussa Oubakir lived said that no one in the town had heard of anyone leaving to join Islamic State. The woman, who would only give her first name, Ximena, added: "We don't get this here. We are a small town and we would know about it."  Mapped: Barcelona van attack 5:42PM  Media reports Julian Cadman's father is at the justice and forensic centre He was reportedly taken there by authorities.

There are reports that officers are seeking to match his DNA with the bodies found after the Alcanar explosion.

A traditional tent set up on a rocky patch of ground near the rough stone house of the Oukabir family, originally intended for a wedding reception, has been turned into a funeral tent. "Joy has given way to sadness and pain," said Abderrahim, in his forties, an uncle of the Oukabir brothers. Driss Oukabir, 27, was arrested in the Spanish town of Ripoll on Thursday just hours after a van sped into crowds on the busy Las Ramblas avenue in central Barcelona, leaving 13 people dead. Driss Oukabir, suspect linked to the attack of Barcelona  Credit: AFP/Getty Images His brother Moussa, 17, was one of five "suspected terrorists" shot dead after knocking down pedestrians in the Catalan seaside resort of Cambrils in a second attack in the early hours of Friday. "We are in shock, completely distraught", said the father of the two young men, Said, with tears in his eyes. With an athletic build and a baseball cap on his head, he was surrounded by family members, neighbours and friends who had come to offer their condolences. "Spanish police called Moussa's mother who is in Spain to tell her that he was dead," he told AFP shortly before the official announcement by police on Friday night. The twin terror attacks left 14 people dead and some 120 wounded. "We are simple, peaceful people. We don't know anything about radicalism or terrorism," another resident told AFP. 'A nice boy' The economy of the impoverished, mostly Berber-speaking region is based mainly on farming, herding and money sent home by family members working in Europe. Said Oukabir left to try his luck on the other side of the Mediterranean in the 1990s. With his son Driss, who was 10 at the time, he headed for the province of Girona in Catalonia. Moussa Oukabir Moussa, who would have celebrated his 18th birthday in October, was born in Ripoll, a Spanish town of around 10,000 people about 100 kilometres (60 miles) north of Barcelona. The family have since lived between Spain, Melouiya and the nearby town of Aghbala. The news that the two brothers were implicated in the Spain attacks shocked relatives, who said they had no idea the two had been radicalised. "The whole region is in shock," Moussa's uncle said. "He was gentle, always smiling, he didn't smoke or drink." Said said his sons had shown no sign of radicalisation.

Hannah Strange reports from Barcelona: El Confidencial is also reporting the hypothesis of a "spiritual or idealogical leader" who radicalised them and helped them plan the attacks over a number of months, citing sources involved in the investigation. The paper says investigators believe the cell members' lack of prior terror links  support this theory. Sources also said they had detected a number of trips by some members to France and Morocco. Among the up to 20 members of the suspected cell, there are five sets of brothers, the paper also reports. 10:21AM Hunt for 'van driver' continues Harry Yorke reports  The blinds were drawn at Younes Abouyuqoub's third floor apartment today, with no answer when his door was knocked. A neighbour, Huan, 47, said that he had seen Younes on several occasions, but that he did not live with anyone else But another woman, who refused to give her name, said that she had seen children in the apartment. She did not know if they were relatives. 9:49AM Second source claims terror cell may have planned to target historic landmark James Badcock reports: One hypothesis being considered by investigators is that the 12-strong terrorist cell planned to perpetrate three van attacks in Barcelona, mowing down as many pedestrians as possible before detonating the gas canisters inside the vehicles at emblematic locations around the city. According to the online newspaper El Español, the popular port area of the city could have been the third location, along with the Sagrada Familia basilica and La Rambla boulevard. The police have found more than 100 butane gas canisters amongst the rubble of the cell’s bomb-making safehouse in Alcanar, which they believe were to be ignited with acetone peroxide, also known as “mother of Satan” and used regularly, despite its instability, by Isil terrorists. The Sagrada Familia isto hold a special Mass on Sunday in memory of the victims of the attacks in Barcelona and Cambrils. 9:25AM Julian Cadman's family face agonising wait The family of Julian Cadman, 7, who is missing after the attack, are facing an agonising wait for news of their boy. His father, Andrew, who found out over the radio while at work that his son was missing and wife badly injured in the attack, boarded a plane and took the long journey from Sydney to Barcelona to hunt for his son. Missing Julian However, there is still no news. On Saturday morning, relative Debbie Cadman wrote on Facebook: "Morning everyone. First of all thank you to all who got involved yesterday in trying to track down my young cousin Julian. Your many good wishes were of great strength and comfort. Unfortunately we as a family have no news to bring you. Will let you all know if there's any updates. Trying to stay positive but it's far from easy. Hopefully he's being looked after by some kind people somewhere safe and sound. With heartfelt thanks" 9:16AM Reports the terrorists wanted to blow up the Sagrada Familia Hannah Strange reports from Barcelona El Confidencial cited sources in the investigation as saying the famous landmark was a target in the cell's original plans, which police believed involved explosives found in a house in Alcanar, 120 miles to the south of Barcelona.  Those plans are believed to have been called off after a blast in the house in the early hours of Thursday morning - at first suspected to be caused by a gas leak - which destroyed much of their materials. Barcelona Sagrada Familia Credit:  GlobalVision Communication / GlobalFlyCam A spokesperson for the Mossos d'Escuadra, the Catalan police force, told The Telegraph that they could not confirm the potential targets at this stage. It was clear that the group had been planning a "large scale" attack using explosives in Barcelona but police could not say whether this was on one target or multiple points, consecutively or simultaneously, they explained. The police force put out an alert on Saturday morning advising that residents of Alcanar were about to hear several controlled explosions. 8:54AM Spanish police are investigating Barcelona attackers' bomb factory From James Rothwell in Alcanar Spanish police are to carry out a series of controlled explosions at the site of the Barcelona attackers' bomb factory in the seaside resort of Alcanar on Saturday.   The house exploded on Wednesday, when the terrorists are believed to have accidentally set off on an improvised bomb.  According to local media, the jihadist cell had been producing a crude homemade explosive known as ketone peroxide which is highly unstable and must be kept at low temperatures.  Neighbours in Alcanar speculated that the intense heat may have triggered the explosion.  It was also reported that more than 105 gas cannisters were being stored in the house.  8:41AM Hunt for "van driver"  ongoing as man still on the run Harry Yorke reports from Ripoll At least six men from the small Pyrenees town of Ripoll are thought to have been involved in the Las Ramblas and Cambrils terror attacks, it emerged last night. Three of the men, all thought to be of Moroccan origin and including chief suspect Moussa Oukabir, were said to have been killed by Spanish police during the second attack in Cambrils on Thursday night.  Mohammed Hychami, 23, who lived in the same building as Moussa Oukabir, and Said Aalla, 19, who lived in nearby Ribes de Freser, Girona, were also killed in the shootout. Meanwhile, four other men from Ripoll, including Oukabir's older brother, Driss, and Aalla's brother Mohammed, who was arrested late last night, have been detained by Mossos d'Esqaudra.  Last night Spanish media reported that 11 of the 12 man terror cell had either been killed or detained.  However, Younes Abouyaaqoub, 21, who lives a ten minute's walk from the Oukabir's family home, is still on the run.  Police now believe that Abouyaaqoub drove the white van into crowds on Las Ramblas, having previously identified Moussa Oukabir as the driver.  The son of Moroccan immigrants who moved to the town in 2006, Abouyaaqoub was described by locals in the town as "shy" and "timid", compared to the other men he kept company with.  Speaking to The Telegraph, a young woman who asked to remain anonymous said that she had gone to school with Abouyaaqoub, adding: "Younes was a shy boy, I have said this to others. I did not think he could do something like this."  Another local told the Catalonian newspaper La Vanguardia that Abouyaaqoub had associated with a group of men of Moroccan descent from varying age groups, including Hychami, who he said was two years older and more "boastful".  8:29AM Terror threat to Britain is increasing, according to the Security Minister. The Press Association reports The terror threat to Britain is increasing as Islamic State (IS) loses battles and territory in Syria and Iraq, the Security Minister has said. Ben Wallace said extremist Britons and other Europeans are either unable to get out to the region to join IS, also known as Isis, or have come home and are trying to inspire homegrown fanatics to carry out attacks. The terror group has already lost its base in Iraq, Mosul, and is facing an international coalition-backed offensive in Raqqa, Syria, which was described by former prime minister David Cameron as "the head of the snake". Mr Wallace told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "I think the threat is still increasing, partly driven by the fact Isis is collapsing in Syria and people are either unable to get out there to fight for Isis and so they look to do something at home, or also because people have come back and tried to inspire people with their stories and tales of the caliphate. "I think those two things mean that the threat is to some extent increasing." Mr Wallace rejected suggestions that the Government's voluntary anti-radicalisation programme, Prevent, could be made compulsory. It comes after Simon Cole, the police lead for Prevent, said there needs to be a debate about introducing an element of compulsion for certain groups, such as returnees from Syria. Responding, Mr Wallace said Prevent is under review all the time and revealed plans to release more information about its operations to boost public understanding. But the Security Minister went on: "I'm not sure at the moment that compulsion is the right thing to do, I think the first thing to do is get everyone on board with it. "That includes people like the NUT and all these people that have campaigned against it. "There's no ifs and buts nowadays, if we're going to stop these people who use everyday items such as vehicles and kitchen knives to murder people on our streets, we are going to have to all engage together with Prevent and we are having real success when we do that." He added: "I think it's time for all of us to put a shoulder to the wheel on Prevent and move it along." 8:27AM What we know about the victims We have a full report on the victims here. Here is a short round-up of what we know about the dead. A three-year-old boy is among the dead. Local reports suggest this is the nephew of Francisco Lopez Rodriguez, 65, from Barcelona, who has also been confirmed as dead. However, this has not been confirmed. Two Germans, as yet unnamed, have been confirmed as dead. Ana Maria Suarez died in the attack in the seaside resort of Cambrils.

Francisco Lopez died in the attack while on holiday with his family, according to his niece. Julian Cadman, a 7-year-old boy who was born and raised in Kent, is still missing. His father flew out from Sydney, where they now live, to find him yesterday. 8:13AM Two Germans confirmed dead Earlier reports said there were three German victims of the attack but the German Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sigmar Gabriel, just said the true number is two. He said: "Just like Germany, Spain also seemed to be a safe land (...). Terrorists are trying to widen their network. (...). Sadly there is no absolute safety against terrorism. "The majority of people in the world know that such events are always possible nowadays, many such attacks have been hindered but we can't always prevent it". 7:59AM People continue to lay floral tributes There are now floral tributes along the whole length of Las Ramblas pic.twitter.com/URqMYjJhyy— Hannah Al-Othman �� (@HannahAlOthman) August 19, 2017   7:31AM 'Compassionate, generous' Canadian victim identified as dead Ian Moore Wilson has been identified as dead. Ian Moore Wilson was killed in the attack  His daughter, Vancouver police Staff Sgt. Fiona Wilson, issued this statement:  "My dad, Ian Moore Wilson, was a much-loved husband, father, brother, and grandfather, who lived a healthy, active life alongside his partner of 53 years, my mum, Valerie. "He was compassionate, generous, adventurous, and always game for a lively debate, a good book, exploring new places, and a proper-sized pint.  In the midst of this tragedy, my dad would want those around him to focus on the extraordinary acts of human kindness that our family has experienced over the past several days, and that is exactly what we intend to do.  "From our policing colleagues and friends at the Vancouver Police Department and the RCMP, who have been unwavering in their love and support; to Albert, who threw a family member on the back of his scooter to rush him to the hospital after tragedy struck; to the Air Canada employee who offered up a personal discount pass to make emergency flights more affordable; to the people who assisted my dad in his final moments, and those who focused on my mum’s urgent medical attention and aftercare; and to the Catalonian first responders who put their lives at risk for the safety of others. "These are the things we will choose to focus on when we endeavour to come to terms with the senseless violence and acts of hatred that have taken loved ones before their time. My dad’s passing leaves an immense void in our tight-knit family. He was desperately loved by us all and will be dearly missed."

Samsung Galaxy Note 8: Rumours, release date and everything you need to knowSamsung is gearing up to announce the next device in its Galaxy Note series of luxury mobile phones with large "infinity" displays, a stylus pen and a powerful camera. The company is due to announce the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 smartphone at a major press event on Wednesday, August 23. Official teasers for the new device have shown a phone with a stylus, known as the S Pen, under the tag line "do bigger things". Starting August 23, 2017, do bigger things. #DoWhatYouCantpic.twitter.com/7GiH6R3IGA— Samsung Mobile (@SamsungMobile) August 14, 2017 The last Samsung Galaxy Note was one of the best-looking smartphones you could buy. But the device proved to be a failure after dozens of reports of batteries overheating led to a global recall of the high-end smartphone. Samsung has recovered consumer trust somewhat with the Galaxy S8, which has been a hit for 2017 and is arguably one of the best Android phones you can buy. But the company will will be hoping the new Note 8 can return the brand to its former glory. When will Samsung release the Galaxy Note 8? The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be unveiled on August 23. It is not clear when the device will go on sale, but it is likely to be a few weeks after the launch, which will mean it goes on sale around the time Apple is due to unveil its 10th anniversary iPhone 8.  What will it look like? The Note 8 is rumoured to have a 6.3-inch SuperAMOLED display that covers the whole front of the device, much like its predecessor and the Galaxy S8, according to prominent leaker Evan Blass. The edge-to-edge display is known as an infinity display. The Note 8 is also reported to be Samsung's first handset with a dual-lens camera, the sort found on the iPhone 7 Plus and Android rivals such as the OnePlus 5 and Nokia 8.

Samsung has since launched the tech in US, but even though the S8 came with a dedicated Bixby button you cannot yet use the voice assistant in the UK. The Note 8 is expected to feature Bixby, but it is unclear whether it will be available to use in the UK on launch.

The debacle surrounding Samsung Galaxy Note 7 01:02 While the problem did not effect all the phones, it was a major public relations blow to the company. The Note 8 will have a 3300mAh battery battery with wireless charging capabilities, according to Venturebeat.

How much will the Note 8 cost? It certainly won't come cheap. The Note 7 cost £750 when it was released and the Note 8 could cost more as manufacturers continue to push up the prices of  high-end smartphones. One rumour suggests the phone could cost an eye-watering €1,000 (£900). This will make it the most expensive smartphone Samsung has ever made. What will the iPhone 8 look like?

FaviconBoston free speech rally organisers say they fear far-Right groups could repeat violence of Charlottesville 18 Aug 2017, 5:15 pm

Boston free speech rally organisers say they fear far-Right groups could repeat violence of CharlottesvilleOrganisers of a free speech rally in Boston on Saturday are warning far-Right groups to stay away amid growing fears of a repeat of the violent clashes that led to the death of a protester in Virginia last weekend. The national director of the Ku Klux Klan has said members are expected to turn out for the event, due to start on Boston common at midday. And police, already preparing for the presence of thousands of counter-protesters, said they were stepping up their vigilance in the wake of Thursday’s terrorist attack in Barcelona. The result is a city preparing for the worst. John Medlar, of Boston Free Speech which is organising the rally, said he was as shocked and horrified as anyone else at the violence in Charlottesville when white supremacist groups protested the removal of Confederate statutes commemorating the Civil War.

The Boston group held a similar rally in May but this weekend’s event has come under intense scrutiny after neo-Nazi groups and counter-protesters clashed in Charlottesville. A 32-year-old woman died when a car drove into a crowd sparking a week of debate about race relations, freedom of speech and America’s tempestuous political climate under Donald Trump. Mr Medlar said the roster of speakers included libertarians from both Left and Right but insisted there was no place for groups such as the KKK. “We don’t think the KKK is the type of group that will defend the first amendment rights of black people, so we don’t want them at our rally,” he said, referring to the part of the US constitution that guarantees free expression. Several of the most inflammatory speakers have already dropped out. Gavin McInnes, who describes himself as a “Western Chauvinist” and heads a group called the Proud Boys, said this week would no longer be attending. Trump says 'both sides' to blame in Charlottesville 01:19 Among the confirmed guests are Joe Biggs, who used to work for the conspiracy-mongering website Infowars, as well as Shiva Ayyadurai, a scientist who claims to have invented email and is now running for the Senate. Mr Medlar said he had been working with city authorities to ensure the day would go off peacefully. A planned march has been cancelled and police are setting up physical barriers and a neutral zone to separate counter-protesters from the rally. Several thousand people are expected at the rival “Fight Supremacy” rally. It was planned as a response to the Charlottesville unrest but, coming at the same time as the free speech rally, now raises the prospect of fresh clashes between the two sides. Mr Medlar said he had considered cancelling but realised people might still show up anyway. The responsible course, he added, was to work with city authorities on ensuring an orderly event. “No-one will be able to bring anything that can be used as a weapon,” he said. Charlottesville far-right protest In Charlottesville, armed militias linked to both Left and Right made use of Virginia’s open carry laws to patrol the area carrying assault rifles. About 500 police officers will be on the streets to maintain order. They are planning to close some roads to vehicle after of the car attacks that killed Heather Heyer in Charlottesville and 13 in Barcelona. "We all know the tragedy that happened in Barcelona. That only makes us more vigilant," said William Evans, Boston Police Commissioner. At the same time, Thomas Robb, of the KKK, told the Boston Herald that he expected members to attend. "I don't think they're going to cause a disturbance," he said. "Our members don't stand out, they don't walk around giving Nazi salutes, they might be your next door neighbour or Cub Scout leader."
