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.
