Anger erupts at U.N. climate summit as major economies resist bold action

Anger erupts at U.N. climate summit as major economies resist bold actionMajor economies resisted calls for bolder climate commitments as a U.N. summit in Madrid limped toward a delayed conclusion on Saturday, dimming hopes that nations will act in time to stop rising temperatures devastating people and the natural world. With the two-week gathering spilling into the weekend, campaigners and many delegates slammed Chile, presiding over the talks, for drafting a summit text that they said risked throwing the 2015 Paris Agreement to tackle global warming into reverse. "At a time when scientists are queuing up to warn about terrifying consequences if emissions keep rising, and school children are taking to the streets in their millions, what we have here in Madrid is a betrayal of people across the world," said Mohamed Adow, director of Power Shift Africa, a climate and energy think-tank in Nairobi.

British tourist shot dead in Buenos Aires robbery

British tourist shot dead in Buenos Aires robberyA British tourist has been killed outside a five star hotel in Argentina in an attempted robbery. A 50-year-old man and his son, 28, were both shot as they tried to enter the luxury Hotel Faena, in the heart of Buenos Aires’ Puerto Madero district, emergency services said. They were intercepted by two men on a motorcycyle who tried to rob them as they got out of a taxi, arriving at the hotel. The robbers, who had been circling the area, also had a support vehicle nearby. The two Brits attempted to resist the theft and were shot in the struggle, authorities said. Emergency services arrived within minutes and took both to local Argerich hospital. The father was shot in the armpit and suffered a haemmorage after the bullet entered his chest. He died of his wounds shortly afterwards. His son received a bullet to his left leg and is reportedly out of danger: the bullet missed his femoral artery. The perpetrators escaped after the attack and police were still searching for them on Saturday. Local police have closed off the area and security footage from the scene is being analysed in order to identify the motorcycle and the route of escape. The hotel, which is party of the luxury Faena Group including a hotel in Miami, released a statement expressing "deepest condolences" and promising full support in the investigation. Armed robberies tend to rise at this time of year in Buenos Aires, when tourists flood to the city for the warmer months. In December last year, Swedish tourist Christoffer Persson was shot during an attempted robbery, and his leg subsequently amputated due to his injuries. In the same month, a US tourist was hospitalised after a violent assault during which his camera was stolen. Puerto Madero, where the murder took place, is the redeveloped former city docks, hailed as one of the most successful urban regeneration projects in the world, attracting huge foreign investment, young professionals, and luxury tourism.
