US National Security Adviser John Bolton has said “naval mines almost certainly from Iran” were to blame for the damage to oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman earlier this month. Bolton provided no evidence to support the allegation. Iran has denied involvement in the attacks off the eastern coast of the United Arab Emirates on May 12th, which left holes in the hulls of four ships. The incident came amid an escalation in tensions between Iran and the US.

An Australian teenager who broke an egg on a controversial far-right senator’s head says he has given almost $69,000 to survivors of the Christchurch mosque attacks. Will Connolly egged Fraser Anning in March, prompting people to flood him with donations to pay his legal costs. Anning had caused fury a day earlier when he said, on the day of the shootings, Muslim migration was to blame for them. Anning was formally censured by Australia’s Senate in April for his “appalling” remarks.

 

on May 29, 1953, Edmund Hillary of New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay, a Sherpa of Nepal, become the first explorers to reach the summit of Mount Everest, which at 29,035 feet above sea level is the highest point on earth. The two, part of a British expedition, made their final assault on the summit after spending a fitful night at 27,900 feet. News of their achievement broke around the world on June 2, the day of Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation, and Britons hailed it as a good omen for their country’s future.

Theresa May has said she will quit as Conservative leader on June 7th, paving the way for a contest to decide a new prime minister. In an emotional statement in Downing Street, May said she had “done my best” to honour the 2016 EU referendum result. It would remain a matter of “deep regret” that she had been unable to deliver Brexit, she added. But a new PM was “in the best interests of the country”. May said she will continue to serve as prime minister while a Conservative leadership contest takes place. She will step down as Tory leader on June 7th and a leadership contest is due to begin the following week.

Some of the world’s biggest footwear firms are urging Donald Trump to end the US trade war with China, warning of a “catastrophic” effect on consumers. A letter signed by 173 companies, including Nike and Adidas, says the president’s decision to raise import tariffs to 25% will disproportionately affect the working class. They also warn that higher levies threaten the future of some businesses. Trump maintains that trade deficit will China hurts the US economy. The US president increased levies on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports into the US from 10% to 25% more than a week ago after Washington and Beijing failed to reach a deal on trade.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has won resounding support in last week’s mid-term elections. Wednesday’s official results show his allies now control the senate which so far has served as a check on some of his more controversial policies. The win gives him sweeping power to push his agenda including constitutional changes and reintroducing the death penalty. The election has also cemented his family members in the political elite. Despite criticism from rights groups over his brutal drug war, the president remains hugely popular across the Philippines.
