"They find that this city embraces them and their children, it treats them like its own, and this is why there's a bigger turnout."
A Thai temple building a 69-metre-tall (230 ft) Buddha statue that will be visible across Bangkok said construction was nearly complete but its opening may be pushed back to 2022 due to delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Work on the statue, which is as tall as a 20-storey building, started in 2017 and should be completed this year, but due to the coronavirus pandemic the official opening may be pushed back to 2022, said temple spokesman Pisan Sangkapinij.

Leading economists and political rivals on Monday tore into election promises from Germany's conservatives to lower taxes for companies and the rich while aiming to return to balanced budgets as soon as possible. "The economic programme of the CDU/CSU cannot be financed as it promises tax relief for top earners and companies of 50 billion euros per year, but categorically rules out higher taxes," said Marcel Fratzscher, head of the DIW institute. The programme, with which the conservatives want to cement their poll lead ahead of September's federal election, is based on the assumption that an economic boom will flush more tax revenues into state coffers, he said.
World champions France hope their attacking stars finally align against defending European champions Portugal on Wednesday in an intriguing finale to Euro 2020's heavyweight group. Tournament favourites Les Bleus dominated Germany in their opener but only won through an own goal, then looked short of ideas and stamina in a surprising 1-1 draw against Hungary. They do top Group F - after Portugal were humbled by Germany - but the fearsome attacking trio of Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema will be disappointed to have only found the net once so far.
