Top US court confirms 241-year sentence for youth offender The US Supreme Court on Monday declined to take up the appeal of a man sentenced to 241 years in prison for violent armed robberies committed when he was 16. The decision confirms the sentence and means that Bobby Bostic, who went on an armed crime spree in St Louis, Missouri, on 12 December 1995, will not be eligible for parole until he is 112 years old.

Voter redistricting: US Supreme Court to hear third key case of term

Voter redistricting: US Supreme Court to hear third key case of term For as long as the 27th Congressional District in Texas has been embroiled in litigation over whether it was racially gerrymandered, Nick Gilby has been working on Democratic Party campaigns there. “He wins 60 percent of the vote or more every time, regardless of who the candidate is,” adds Mr. Gilby, referring to former Rep. Blake Farenthold, the Republican who held the seat from 2010 until he resigned earlier this month amid sexual harassment allegations and an ongoing ethics investigation. Gilby’s frustrations are shared by William Whitford, a Democratic voter in Wisconsin, and John Benisek, a Republican voter in Maryland.

Trump sent handwritten message to Macron saying 'It's true Emmanuel, I love you', book claims Donald Trump reportedly sent a jokey, handwritten note to French leader Emmanuel Macron, which read: “Yes, Emmanuel, it’s true. As the French leader arrived in Washington, the first foreign leader to be honoured by a state visit since Mr Trump became president, attention has focussed on the warm relationship between the men, apparently initially started when the two engaged in long handshake during a summit in Europe last year. After Mr Trump returned to Washington, he apparently followed up by sending the French leader press clippings about their budding relationship, sometimes annotated by Mr Trump’s handwritten messages.


Nikol Pashinyan: from fugitive to victorious protest leader

Nikol Pashinyan: from fugitive to victorious protest leader Armenia's opposition lawmaker Nikol Pashinyan has been leading mass anti-government protests that culminated with the resignation of newly appointed Prime Minister Serzh Sarkisian on Monday. A fortnight ago, few in Armenia would have believed that the 42-year-old could bring tens of thousands of people out onto the streets of Yerevan and other cities, eventually forcing the veteran leader to resign. Before these protests, Pashinyan was mostly associated with the tragic events following the 2008 presidential vote that first brought Sarkisian to power, when 10 people died in clashes between police and supporters of the defeated opposition candidate.
