Ethiopia declares assault on Tigray region capital - BBC News
Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed says he is launching the "final phase" of the army's operation in the northern region of Tigray after weeks of fighting. He said the military would try not to harm civilians in the regional capital Mekelle - a city of 500,000 people - and urged residents to stay at home. The TPLF party, which controls Mekelle, has vowed to keep fighting. The UN warns of possible war crimes if the Ethiopian army attacks Mekelle.

Biden: US doesn't want guarded border on Ireland - BBC News
President-elect Joe Biden has said America does not want a "guarded border" between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland following Brexit. He said it had taken a lot of hard work to reach a settlement on the island of Ireland, ending decades of conflict. The UK government has threatened to overrule the Brexit withdrawal agreement which committed it to keeping the border open. Mr Biden has previously said Brexit must not endanger the peace process. Speaking to reporters in Wilmington, Delaware, on Tuesday, Mr Biden said: "We do not want a guarded border. We've worked too long to get Ireland worked out. "The idea of having a border north and south once again being closed is just not right, we've just got to keep the border open." Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog

Joshua Wong pleads guilty in Hong Kong trial - BBC News
Hong Kong democracy activist Joshua Wong and two fellow campaigners are facing the prospect of prison after pleading guilty to unlawful assembly during last year's mass protests. Mr Wong, Ivan Lam and Agnes Chow appeared in court on Monday. Mr Wong said he expected to go to jail, possibly facing five years behind bars. However, as the alleged offences took place before China enacted a harsh national security law in June, they avoided a potential life sentence. The prominent activist revealed he decided to change his plea after talking to his lawyer. "We three have decided to plead guilty to all charges," Mr Wong told reporters gathered at the court on Monday. "It will not be surprising if I am sent to immediate detention today." "We will continue to fight for freedom - and now is not the time for us to kowtow to Beijing and surrender," he added. The three were remanded in custody until 2 December, when they will be sentenced. Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog
