Agreement to hand over border towns comes after more than 700 Isis affiliates escape camp

More than 700 people with links to Islamic State have escaped from a detention camp in north-east Syria, as the Kurdish-led forces in control of the area reached a deal with the Assad regime to stave off a bloody five-day-old Turkish assault.

Kurdish fighters controlling the region would surrender the border towns of Manbij and Kobane to Damascus in a deal brokered by Russia, several officials said on Sunday night.

UK expected to be hit hardest by Trump’s latest tariffs after the 25% tax on $7.5bn of goods is set to start against the EU

There is a corner of Manhattan’s Greenwich Avenue that is forever England – and right now it’s bloody angry.

“This is absolutely draconian, ridiculous,” huffed Sean Kavanagh-Dowsett, co-owner of the restaurant, Tea & Sympathy, the adjoining general products store and its neighbor, A Salt & Battery, a fish and chip shop, that has been serving all things British to locals and expats for 29 years.

US scientists say it may be possible to decipher words using new x-ray technique

When Mount Vesuvius erupted in AD79 it destroyed the towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum, their inhabitants and their prized possessions – among them a fine library of scrolls that were carbonised by the searing heat of ash and gas.

But scientists say there may still be hope that the fragile documents can once more be read thanks to an innovative approach involving high-energy x-rays and artificial intelligence.

Donald Trump cut taxes for rich Americans, but Berlin should invest in modernisation

As long as Germany’s economy was recovering well from the 2008 global financial crisis, policymakers had a coherent rationale for fiscal austerity. Rejecting other eurozone countries’ constant urging that it undertake stimulus, Germany enshrined the national commitment to budget discipline in the 2009 “debt brake”, which limits the federal structural deficit to 0.35% of GDP, and in the subsequent schwarze null (“black zero”) policy of fully balancing the budget.

More German public spending, stimulus advocates argued, would reduce the country’s huge current account surplus and fuel demand that would help other eurozone members, especially in southern Europe. But with Germany experiencing low unemployment and relatively strong growth, policymakers in Berlin were understandably afraid such measures would cause the domestic economy to overheat.
