Many feared dead in passenger plane crash in Cuba
A Boeing 737 plane crashed on Friday shortly after taking off from Havana's main airport on a domestic flight, with a number of people feared dead or injured, Reuters witnesses and officials said.
There were at least three possible survivors among the 105 passengers plus nine crew, Cuban state-run media reported, adding that there were five children on board. Earlier reports on state media said there were 104 passengers.

The number of casualties was not immediately known, but Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel, visiting the site of the crash, told Agence France Presse: “It appears there is a high number of victims.”

“We heard an explosion and then saw a big cloud of smoke go up,” said Gilberto Menendez, who runs a restaurant near the cra..

Trump says Texas school shooting is heartbreaking
U.S. President Donald Trump called the latest school massacre heartbreaking.
As many as 10 people may have died, a majority of them students, in the latest U.S. high school shooting, according to the Texas sheriff for the county where a gunman opened fire in Santa Fe High School.

The suspected shooter, now in custody, was a student at the school, said Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, adding the campus is still considered an active crime scene.

“There are multiple fatalities. It could be anywhere between eight to 10,” he told a press briefing.

Trump said, “My administration is determined to do everything in our power to protect our students, secure our schools and to keep weapons out of the hands of those who pose a threat to themselves and to others.”

Two relegated Premier League sides see their managers leave
Both Stoke City and Swansea City have decided it is time to make a change after their relegation to the Championship.
Swansea City parted company with manager Carlos Carvalhal and Paul Lambert left Stoke City earlier today.

Stoke ended a decade in the Premier League with a win at Swansea on Sunday, that sealed the fate of the Welsh side.

A statement from Stoke City said.

“Whilst he was unable to guide us to safety, it certainly wasn't due to a lack of effort, professionalism and dedication.”

Meanwhile Carvalhal left after saying he wanted to discuss his future at the club but chairman Huw Jenkins said “it was in the interest of both parties to move in a new direction.”

North Korea does not accept South Korean media outlets for visit of nuclear site event
North Korea has declined to accept a list of South Korean journalists hoping to observe the closure of its nuclear test site
This is raising new questions about the North’s commitment to reducing tension.

North Korea had invited a limited number of journalists from South Korea and other countries to witness what it said will be the closing of its only nuclear weapons test site at Punggye-ri next week.

The North Korean offer to scrap the test site has been seen as major concession in months of easing tension between it, on the one hand, and South Korea and the United States on the other.

But the remarkable progress appears to have been checked in recent days with North Korea raising doubts about an unprecedented June 12 summit in Singapore between leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump, and calling off talks with the South.

Socially responsible funds have start to act on Facebook over data privacy
Several socially conscious investment firms are selling or rethinking their Facebook Inc holdings.
The retreat from the world’s largest social media network is one of the sharpest responses by investors to concerns about Facebook’s handling of user data.

Cambridge Analytica, a now-defunct political data firm hired by Trump’s 2016 election campaign, has been accused of harvesting data for 87 million Facebook users and is under investigation in the United States and Europe.

Facebook shares fell in the first quarter when the scandal broke, and recovered after founder and Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg testified before U.S. lawmakers in April. Although he deflected questions and avoided pledging to support new regulation, doubts were raised about his commitment to fully resolve the issue.[

“Facebook’s problems, we believe, are founded on a lack of sufficient attention to consumer privacy and data securi..
