Israel police have arrested one of the Palestinian pallbearers beaten by officers at the funeral of slain Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, the detained man's lawyer said on Wednesday. A police spokesperson confirmed the arrest of Amro Abu Khdair but said it was not connected to Friday's funeral.

But in Lysychansk, 700 kilometres east of the capital, that is all a world away. It is here that Russia is pushing its renewed offensive in Ukraine's eastern Donbas region the hardest, concentrating its forces and slowly but surely moving forward. Almost three months into the war, only a small sliver of Luhansk oblast, one of two main administrative regions

"But it feels targeted," said Sharp, owner of Leading Edge Property Solutions on Somerset Street in the north end of Saint John.

Will Towell is at an impasse: either live in a homeless shelter with cockroaches he hates or move back to a tent in the bush and deal with a bunch of other critters. What the 64-year-old Kingston, Ont., resident really needs is a wheelchair-accessible unit in social housing.

While the thought of living outdoors tempts him, Towell decides to tough

When a shooter attacked a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, over the weekend, its security guard tried to stop him.
