The leader of the Anglican Communion, which includes 85 million people in about 165 countries, tweeted a picture of himself receiving the shot and described the rapid development of vaccines against the new coronavirus as an answer to prayer. "To everyone in this country and across the world, I want to say please, please accept the invitation to get the jab when it comes -- and encourage everyone around you to do the same."

AL-QAIM, Iraq (Reuters) - Iraq is tightening security along its 600 km (400 mile) border with Syria to curb the movement of Islamic State militants, drug smuggling and other illegal activities. Iraqi commanders on Monday toured the remote desert frontier controlled by various different forces, including the Iraqi military, Iran-aligned militias, the Syrian army, anti-Damascus rebels, and U.S.-backed Kurdish forces. The border is a flashpoint for tension between Iran-backed groups and the United States, and is also tense because of Islamic State incursions and Turkish pressure on Kurdish rebel groups.

The ITA also charged Dumitru Captari of Romania -- who competed alongside Rahimov in the under-77 kg event in Rio de Janeiro - with offences that took place "over a period of time in 2016". Both athletes have been provisionally suspended but it is unclear if the allegations span the 2016 Rio Games where Rahimov claimed gold with a world record lift.
Mandzukic has been without a club since last summer when his contract at Qatar's Al-Duhail was terminated by mutual consent. The 34-year-old had spent the previous four years at Juventus, scoring 31 league goals in 118 Serie A appearances, and returns to Italy to line-up in an experienced Milan attack alongside 39-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimovic. "I am very happy," Ibrahimovic told Sky Sport Italia when asked about Mandzukic's imminent arrival following Milan's win at Cagliari on Monday.
The number of patients being treated for COVID-19 in Irish hospitals fell on Tuesday from the highest level recorded since the pandemic began a day earlier, as a surge in infections that threatened to overwhelm the health system began to ease. Ireland had the fastest-growing incidence rate in Europe at the start of the year, fuelled by the relaxation of restrictions ahead of Christmas and the increasing prevalence of a new, more transmissible variant first detected in England. That led to 2,020 patients being admitted to hospital with COVID-19 by Monday, more than double the previous peak set in the first wave of infections in April.
While major corporations and some law firms stopped contributions to lawmakers after the deadly Jan. 6 siege of the U.S. Capitol, few of the legal industries' most powerful political spenders have publicly taken similar steps. Five people including a police officer lost their lives as supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the seat of Congress, fueled by Trump's baseless claims of voter fraud. Firms including Covington & Burling, outside counsel for President-elect Joe Biden's campaign, and lobbying giants Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld and Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck issued statements condemning the violence, but stopped short of pledging to suspend donations from their political action committees.
