Pope likens migrant holding centres to ‘concentration camps’

Islamists had slit the throat of the man’s Christian wife because she refused to throw her crucifix on the ground. “I don’t know if he managed to leave that concentration camp, because refugee camps, many of them, are of concentration (type) because of the great number of people left there inside them,” the pope said. The American Jewish Committee (AJC) later urged the pope “to reconsider his regrettable choice of words” for using the term concentration camp. “The Nazis and their allies erected and used concentration camps for slave labor and the extermination of millions of people during World War II. The pope urged people in northern Italy, home to an anti-immigrant party, to take more migrants, hoping that the generosity of southern Italy could “infect the north a bit”.

France votes in cliffhanger presidential election on Sunday

Voting began in France on Sunday in the first round of a bitterly fought presidential election that is crucial to the future of Europe and a closely-watched test of voters’ anger with the political establishment. “It wouldn’t be the classic left vs right divide but two views of the world clashing,” said Ifop pollsters’ Jerome Fourquet. While Macron wants to further beef up the euro zone, Le Pen has told supporters “the EU will die”. Le Pen or Melenchon would struggle, in parliamentary elections in June, to win a majority to carry out such radical moves, but their growing popularity worries both investors and France’s EU partners. For Macron, a big question would be whether he could win a majority in parliament in June.

March for Science draws big crowds, clever signs across US

In hundreds of “March for Science” events from Boston to Sydney, Australia, engineers, researchers and teachers took a break from the lab to apply their ingenuity to colourful protest placards. Some demonstrators walked in lab coats while others shaded themselves under umbrellas and signs as temperatures neared 32°C. March for Science is the latest in a series of national demonstrations staged since Trump’s inauguration nearly 100 days ago. Trump’s proposed 2018 budget calls for deep spending cuts by government science agencies, including a 31% reduction for the Environmental Protection Agency. “Being here definitely gives me hope that there’s this overwhelming population that supports science and supports scientific theory,” she said.

France votes in cliffhanger presidential election

"It wouldn't be the classic left vs right divide but two views of the world clashing," said Ifop pollsters' Jerome Fourquet. "Macron bills himself as the progressist versus conservatives, Le Pen as the patriot versus the globalists." Some 20-30 percent might not vote and about 30 percent of those who plan to show up at the polling stations are unsure whom to vote for. While Macron wants to further beef up the euro zone, Le Pen has told supporters "the EU will die." Some 67,000 polling stations will open at 8 am, monitored by more than 50,000 police officers.
