A video taken by a police helicopter during the five hour pursuit last week showed masked smugglers taking photographs and waving to the officers. The five members of the gang were later arrested after their speedboat was intercepted by a customs patrol boat off the coast of Cartagena, in southeastern Spain.

Italy reported 686 COVID-19-related deaths on Saturday, against 827 the day before, and 26,323 new infections, down from 28,352 on Friday, the health ministry said. Italy was the first Western country to be hit by the virus and has seen 54,363 COVID-19 fatalities since its outbreak emerged in February, the second highest toll in Europe after Britain. While Italy's daily death tolls have been amongst the highest in Europe over recent days, the rise in hospital admissions and intensive care occupancy has slowed, suggesting the latest wave of infections was receding.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi toured three of the nation's leading vaccine development and manufacturing sites on Saturday (November 28) as coronavirus case counts continue to soar. India has recorded at least 9.35 million COVID-19 infections, second only to the United States. It reported 41,322 new cases and 485 deaths on Saturday. The western state of Maharashtra - home to India's financial hub, Mumbai - has been particularly hard hit by the virus. Its tally of 1.68 million cases is higher than countries such as Spain, Italy and the United Kingdom. A street market in India's capital New Delhi was packed with shoppers on Saturday despite the climb in cases. Regional authorities sent coronavirus-themed rickshaws to spread awareness about the virus and the importance of wearing masks and social distancing. In a series of tweets, Modi congratulated scientists on their progress and assured them of his government's support. The companies are testing homegrown vaccine options, as well as working on trials of vaccines being developed overseas.
Boris Johnson has appointed Nadhim Zahawi as a health minister responsible for the deployment of the coronavirus vaccine, Downing Street has announced. The temporary position will last 'until at least next summer' with Mr Zahawi temporarily relinquishing responsibility for most areas of his brief at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (Beis). The duration of Mr Zahawi's appointment suggests it could take up to six months for the vaccine to be rolled out in its entirety across the UK. Mr Zahawi said he was "delighted" to be appointed to the role, vowing to ensure vaccines are rolled out quickly to save lives and livelihoods. On Friday, he said that he was "extremely disappointed and sad" that Warwickshire, where he serves as MP for Stratford-on-Avon, will be moving into Tier 3.
Alex Thomson's bid for Vendee Globe glory ended on Saturday when the British skipper had to retire with a damaged boat.
Manama [Bahrain], November 28 (ANI): Seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton on Saturday dominated every segment of Bahrain Grand Prix qualifying to take the pole position.
Thomson was looking to become the first non-French winner of the 24,000 nautical mile non-stop race aboard the HUGO BOSS but damaged the rudder 19 days into the race. The team said Thomson, 46, had disconnected the starboard rudder and had been sailing with just one rudder before they decided to stop racing and asked him to sail the boat to Cape Town. Thomson, who had also been forced to stop earlier this week to make repairs on damage to the bow area before rejoining the race, is currently around 1,800 nautical miles from Cape Town and is expected to arrive in seven days.
Pope Francis on Saturday installed 13 new cardinals, including the first African-American to hold the high rank, further expanding the pontiff's impact on the group that will one day elect his successor. The cardinals were installed in a ceremony, known as a consistory, that was markedly slimmed down because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of the usual thousands, only 10 guests per cardinal were allowed in St. Peter's Basilica as the pope gave the men their ring and traditional red hat, known as a biretta.
A fire swept through a warehouse inside a factory compound owned by Chinese smartphone maker Oppo on the outskirts of the Indian capital on Saturday, a senior police official said. Ambulances and 19 fire trucks were rushed to the Oppo plant in Greater Noida after the fire broke out in the evening, Vishal Pandey, a senior police official in the area, told Reuters. The extent of the damage is not known but the fire may cause more problems for Oppo, which was recently forced to import some of the smartphones manufactured at the site, as the COVID-19 pandemic and supply chain issues impacted production from the facility.

Another test event for the 2022 Beijing Olympics was called off Saturday, when bobsled and skeleton officials canceled plans to have a training week and World Cup race on a newly built track to end this year’s sliding season. The reason, in both cases, was the same: ongoing concerns about international travel during the coronavirus pandemic, which originated in China about a year ago. In a letter sent to national federations Saturday, International Bobsled and Skeleton Federation secretary general Heike Groesswang said several weeks of conversations were held about how to move forward with the training week and World Cup “under the challenging circumstances the COVID-19 pandemic causes to all of us.”

German filmmaker Ulrike Ottinger has been making films for nearly 50 years now, creating experimental and often transgressive work that frequently walks the line between documentary reality and artistic truth. Nothing has fazed her in this time, even working in the bohemian heyday of the late Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s Berlin, but her latest film, in […]
