  2. Daredevil #604 has unveiled The Order of the Dragon - a secretive group of Catholic warrior-priests who have battled against the darkness for centuries. Marvel's answer to the legends of the Knights Templar, the Order of the Dragon has emerged to help Matt Murdock save New York from the Hand. Charles Soule's "Mayor Fisk" storyline has plunged New York into chaos. The Hand have struck New York in force, and the city's heroes are desperately attempting to drive them back. With Mayor Fisk in a coma, Matt Murdock has become Mayor of New York, and he's commanding the city's superheroes and police force in battle against the Hand. But #603 ended with Matt struck down by a mysterious gas, left unconscious. As clouds of mystic smoke swept across the city, a figure emerged from the shadows to help Matt. It was Father Jordan, Matt's priest, clad in a strange garb. Daredevil #604 reveals that Father Jordan isn't just a parish priest. He's also a member of a secret Catholic group of warrior-priests known as the Order of the Dragon, who have fought to protect the Earth from supernatural threats for centuries. The Order Draconum was founded by King Sigismund Von Luxembourg of Hungary in 1408, and was initially used to protect the king's empire from threats. About a hundred years later, the Order of the Dragon went underground, now working to protect humanity itself. In the 16th century, they fought vampires. The 17th saw the Order battle the Plague Zombies, and in the 18th they battled against the Fjord Queens. The vampires returned in the 19th century, but again were driven back; and it seems in the 20th, the Order fought against Nazi shark-mutants! Surprisingly enough, writer Charles Soule has based the Order of the Dragon on a group who really existed. King Sigismund Von Luxembourg is an actual figure from history, and in 1408 he really did found the Order of the Dragon after the fashion of the different orders who served in the Crusades. Daredevil #604 is actually sprinkled with imagery that really does run all the way back to the Order of the Dragon, right down to their sigils and insignia. Even that whistle-stop history of Order Draconum activity throughout the ages has its basis in history and legend. Some of the oldest vampire legends originate in the 16th century; the 17th century is famous for the bubonic plague; global temperatures worldwide really did drop throughout the 18th century, and the winter of winter of 1794–1795 was particularly harsh in the Northern Hemisphere. Bram Stoker's Dracula was written in 1897, and Dracula's an actual Marvel villain, so it makes sense that the Order took on vampires around that time. Amusingly, Father Jordan reveals that Van Helsing was actually a member of the Order Draconum. Apparently he died fighting a Yeti-demon in Nepal. It seems the Order has never been numerous; Father Jordan only manages to bring in 20 soldiers to help in the battle against the Hand. But they're tremendously skilled warriors, and appropriately enough they can actually fly. With the help of the Order Draconum, Daredevil finally manages to begin to gain ground in the war for New York. When the dust settles from the "Mayor Fisk" arc, the Order of the Dragon will no doubt go down as one of the most important and imaginative twists in Soule's tale. Soule's run is one of the best in decades, easily standing alongside the likes of Frank Miller and Mark Waid. It's surely only a matter of time before some of these arcs are adapted into Netflix's popular Daredevil series - and this imaginative idea is definitely an attractive one.
  3. Shane Black's The Predator will have a presence at the 2018 International Comic-Con in San Diego. The sequel/reboot to the previous Predator movies has been relatively slow to begin its marketing, with The Predator teaser trailer having only dropped back in May. Fox has further shifted the film's release date back a few times and reportedly revamped most of its third act during reshoots. The Predator's trailer didn't inspire much confidence in the film either, judging by the generally lukewarm response it earned. Fortunately, there's still plenty of time to improve the Predator fanbase's outlook towards the movie, starting with a showing at Comic-Con in July. Black's movie stars Jacob Tremblay (Wonder) as a boy who inadvertently sends out a signal that prompts the titular alien's race to return to earth and wreak havoc, as they are inclined to do. The film's cast also includes such geek favorites as Olivia Munn, Yvonne Strahovski, and Keegan-Michael Key in key roles, along with acclaimed characters actors like Sterling K. Brown (Hotel Artemis), Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight), and Boyd Holbrook (Logan). Chances are, at least a few of these players will join Black during The Predator's SDCC panel next month. Deadline is reporting that The Predator will "definitely" have a Hall H panel at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. However, it's not clear yet what other Fox movies (if any) will be featured at the 'Con. As Deadline notes in its report, Fox has several other movies on its docket that seem like natural fits for the event; including, this August's YA sci-fi adaptation The Darkest Minds, December's live-action anime/manga movie Alita: Battle Angel, and next February's X-Men: Dark Phoenix. For the time being though, The Predator is the only Fox release set to have a presence at the 2018 SDCC. There is, in fact, a precedent for Fox only focusing on a single movie at SDCC. Last year, the studio used its Hall H panel to highlight Kingsman: The Golden Circle, an R-rated franchise sequel much like The Predator. The Kingsman sequel even hit theaters in mid-September last year, much like Black's sci-fi/action film will be doing later this summer. Things worked out well enough for the second Kingsman movie at the box office, so it stands to reason that Fox is hoping that history repeats itself with The Predator, in that regard. Questionable marketing aside, Black's involvement alone is a good harbinger for The Predator, as far as the film's quality goes. Recent TV spots for The Predator have further assured that the movie will have Black's trademark action style and humor, as opposed to being a flavorless rebooting sequel like The Predator teaser trailer (arguably) suggested. Either way, there's a decent chance that Fox will premiere a new trailer for the film during its SDCC panel, so there should be more to talk about on that front in the foreseeable future. The 2018 International Comic-Con in San Diego takes place from July 19-22 next month.
  4. Zachary Quinto believes it's only a matter of time before more concrete updates on Star Trek 4 come to light. Paramount announced they were making a fourth installment in the franchise's rebooted Kelvin Timeline before 2016's Star Trek Beyond opened in theaters. However, with Beyond earning just $343.4 million worldwide against a production budget of $185 million, the series entered a state of limbo. For a while, talk of a Star Trek 4 cooled, giving way to Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek movie. However, it looks like a fourth go-around for the current Enterprise crew is still in the cards. Earlier this year, after Simon Pegg stated the cast would do another film, it was reported S.J. Clarkson was in talks to become the franchise's first female director. That's a prospect that excites many, though it's been relatively quiet on the Star Trek 4 front since Clarkson became attached. That could be changing soon, if the latest comments by Quinto are anything to believe. The actor appeared on Andy Cohen's show on Sirius XM, where he was naturally asked about the state of the Star Trek franchise. Quinto appeared optimistic that some headway on the new films is going to be made in just a few weeks: “You know, I think we’re going to know more in the next few weeks actually. There is a fourth movie that’s being developed right now. They’ve brought a director who’s actually a wonderful woman who I’ve worked with before named S.J. Clarkson into the mix to develop and to helm that project. And so I think it’s now kind of in the business, logistical kind of phase.” It'll be interesting to see when exactly any announcements will be made. San Diego Comic-Con 2018 takes place in the timeframe Quinto is referring to, though there's so far been no word on Paramount having a presence at the convention. That being said, it wouldn't be out of the question for there to be a Star Trek panel at SDCC, giving fans some insight into what's going on behind-the-scenes. If not during Comic-Con, another possibility is the Official Star Trek Convention, which takes place in Las Vegas at the beginning of August. There will of course be all kinds of presentations there, and revealing new movie details in a less competitive week could have its benefits for Paramount. They could, of course, opt to confirm information regarding Star Trek 4 at some other point in time. Quinto also touched on Tarantino's Star Trek, which he said remains in the pipeline. Fascinatingly enough, he seemed to indicate the Kelvin Timeline cast would appear in that one, remarking the priority right now is Clarkson's film (while Tarantino works on Once Upon a Time in Hollywood), and then they'll do "that one" (referring to Tarantino's) at some point "down the line." Previously, it was reported Tarantino's Star Trek was not set in the Kelvin Timeline, so this would mark quite a significant change in the concept. Hopefully, it won't be much longer until fans know what the future holds for their beloved property on the big screen.
  5. Terminator 6 brings new meaning to the iconic phrase "I'll be back". Not only is Arnold Schwarzenegger once again putting on the sunglasses for his iconic role of the T-800, but Linda Hamilton is back as Sarah Connor and original director James Cameron is writing and producing. The film, set for a 2019 release, will be directed by Deadpool's Tim Miller and follow-up 1991's Terminator 2, completely ignoring the three sequels since. Release Date: November 22, 2019 Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Mackenzie Davis Director: Tim Miller Writers: James Cameron, David S. Goyer, Justin Rhodes, Billy Ray, Justin Friedman LINDA HAMILTON AND ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER ARE BACK FOR TERMINATOR 6 Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger are returning for Terminator 6. It's the first time that both actors will be appearing in the same installment since 1991's Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Hamilton will be reprising her role as Sarah Connor, while Schwarzenegger will be portraying the "human basis" for the iconic T-800. However, that doesn't mean Arnie won't also have a few scenes as the T-800. It wouldn't be a Terminator film, otherwise. A younger Schwarzenegger has also been cast. TERMINATOR 6'S HERO & VILLAIN HAVE BEEN CAST The first actor cast in Terminator 6 after the returning duo was Mackenzie Davis, who plays a soldier-assassin who in some way influences the plot. It's unclear how she'll slot into the film's plot, but the understanding is that she'll play opposite other castee, Diego Boneta. The Terminator - non-Arnie vintage - will be Gabriel Luna, best known for playing Ghost Rider on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. With filming underway on Terminator 6, it's expected for more casting to be confirmed soon. TERMINATOR 6'S PLOT HASN'T BEEN REVEALED YET Official story details for Terminator 6 haven't released as of yet. James Cameron, however, has mentioned that the film will center on the aforementioned 18 - 21-year-old actress who can continue the story in future installments should the first movie prove successful. It's since been reported the film will be set in Mexico, a location that provided a backdrop to some of Judgement Day's action. TERMINATOR 6 SET PHOTOS REVEAL MACKENZIE DAVIS & LINDA HAMILTON Terminator 6 is currently in production, and as a result some set photos revealing characters new and old have found their way online. First is Linda Hamilton back as Sarah Connor, sporting a bulletproof vest complete with grenades. Mackenzie Davis isn't far off in terms of look, sporting a short haircut and tank top not dissimilar to Sarah in Terminator 2: Judgement Day - only with more scars.
  6. The European Union will launch a raft of retaliatory tariffs against US exports on Friday, a top official has said. The move comes after US President Donald Trump imposed steep duties on steel and aluminium earlier this month. American exports such as blue jeans, motorbikes and bourbon whiskey will be targeted, trade commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom confirmed. However, she said the bloc "did not want to be in this position". "The unilateral and unjustified decision of the US to impose steel and aluminium tariffs on the EU means that we are left with no other choice," she said. Brussels drew up the list of products in March when Mr Trump initially proposed the 25% tariffs on steel imports and 10% on aluminium, which also target Canada, Mexico and other close US allies. Cranberries, orange juice, sweetcorn and peanut butter are among the other goods targeted. It comes amid an intensifying row over trade between the US and its partners. On Tuesday, Mr Trump threatened to impose duties on an additional $200bn (£151bn) of Chinese goods after hitting $50bn of products with tariffs. He said the 10% duties would come into effect if China "refuses to change its practices". However, China accused the US of "blackmail" and said it would "fight back firmly", raising fears of a full-blown trade war. How did this start? Mr Trump announced plans for tariffs on foreign steel and aluminium in March, justifying them on national security grounds. He has argued that global oversupply of steel and aluminium, driven by China, threatens American steel and aluminium producers, which are vital to the US. Since the announcement, South Korea, Argentina, Australia and Brazil have agreed to put limits on the volume of metals they can ship to the US in lieu of tariffs. However, Canada has announced it will impose retaliatory tariffs on C$16.6bn (£9.5bn) worth of US exports from 1 July. And Mexico put tariffs on American products ranging from steel to pork and bourbon two weeks ago. What does the EU say? Ms Malstrom called the EU response proportionate and in line with World Trade Organization rules. She said that counter-measures - which affect €2.8bn worth of US goods - would be removed if Washington removed its metal tariffs. EU steel and aluminium exports now facing US tariffs are worth a total of €6.4bn (£5.6bn). What could the impact be? Many of the products the EU has in its sights are specifically chosen to have maximum political effect. Bourbon whiskey is produced in Kentucky, the state of Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell. Orange juice is a key export for Florida, a swing state in the US elections. Meanwhile, economists have warned the US metal tariffs could lead to higher metal costs, disrupt supply chains and even get passed on to US households. Imposing the metals duties on 31 May, US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross dismissed the concerns about higher costs, arguing that the effects would be minimal. And in March, Mr Trump signalled he could impose yet more retaliation if the EU raised trade barriers on US companies. Last week, the International Monetary Fund warned that the Trump administration's protectionist policies are likely to hurt the US economy and undermine the world's trade system. IMF director Christine Lagarde said a trade war would lead to "losers on both sides" and have a "serious" impact.
  7. More than 450 patients died after being given powerful painkillers inappropriately at Gosport War Memorial Hospital, a report has found. An independent panel said, taking into account missing records, a further 200 patients may have suffered a similar fate. The report found there was a "disregard for human life" of a large number of patients from 1989 to 2000. It said Dr Jane Barton oversaw the practise of prescribing on the wards. There was an "institutionalised regime" of prescribing and administering "dangerous" amounts of a medication not clinically justified at the Hampshire hospital, the report said. Prime Minister Theresa May described events at Gosport as "deeply troubling" and apologised to families over the time it took to get answers from the NHS. Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt told MPs that police and the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) would examine material in the report to consider their next steps and "whether criminal charges should now be brought". Bridget Reeves - whose grandmother Elsie Divine, 88, died at the hospital in 1998 - said "These horrifying, shameful, unforgivable actions need to be disclosed in a criminal court for a jury to decide and only then can we put our loved ones to rest." So far, the only person to face disciplinary action has been Dr Barton, who was found guilty of failings in her care of 12 patients at Gosport between 1996 and 1999. But no prosecutions were brought and she was not struck off the medical register, choosing to retire after the findings. Former Bishop of Liverpool James Jones, who led the Gosport Independent Panel, said: "The documents seen by the panel show that for a 12-year period a clinical assistant, Dr Barton, was responsible for the practice of prescribing which prevailed on the wards. "Although the consultants were not involved directly in treating patients on the wards, the medical records show that they were aware of how drugs were prescribed and administered but did not intervene to stop the practice." Relatives had said they hoped the findings of the report would end their "harrowing" wait for answers. The document said families were "consistently let down" by those in authority, both medical individuals and institutions, when they complained about the treatment of their loved ones. Bishop Jones, who also headed the Hillsborough inquiry, said: "It's not for the panel to ascribe criminal or civil liability. "It will be for any future judicial processes to determine whatever culpability and criticism might be forthcoming." Police previously investigated the deaths of 92 patients during three inquires between 1998 and 2006, but no prosecutions were brought. Chief Constable Olivia Pinkney, of Hampshire Constabulary, said the force had "co-operated fully" with the panel and "shared with them more than 25,000 documents containing 100,000 pages of information". 'Another Shipman' "We will assess any new information contained within the report in conjunction with our partners in health and the CPS in order to decide the next steps," she added. The report said an "awareness" that the deaths "might be due to 'another Shipman'" had "cast a shadow over how concerns at the hospital were viewed". GP Harold Shipman was jailed for life in 2000 for murdering 15 patients between 1995 and 1998. "The police focused on the allegation that Dr Barton was guilty of unlawful killing, rather than pursuing a wider investigation," the report added. "Hampshire Constabulary approached Dr Barton's managers, including the then chief executive at the trust and Dr Althea Lord, the responsible consultant, in a way that ignored the possibility that they too might have been subject to investigation." It said the quality of the force's three investigations was "consistently poor". The panel found officers had a mindset of seeing family members who complained as "stirring up trouble" while seeing the hospital as the place to go for guidance and assurance during their inquiries. The report added: "There was an institutionalised regime of prescribing and administering 'dangerous doses' of a hazardous combination of medication not clinically indicated or justified, with patients and relatives powerless in their relationship with professional staff." Gosport MP Caroline Dinenage said it highlighted many "failures" by the authorities to properly investigate. She said organisations must look closely at the full report and urged the government to take action if there were cases to answer. She said: "I can't even imagine what the families must be going through - it's absolutely heart-breaking." Janet Davies, chief executive of the Royal College of Nursing, said the report made for "very sober reading for everybody involved in the care of patients". "Nursing as a profession must work hard to seek out lessons from Gosport," she added. The health secretary described the findings as "truly shocking". He said "brave nurse whistle blowers" had first raised concerns in 1991, as well as families. He added there had been a "catalogue of failures", including by the Department of Health. A report first compiled by Prof Richard Baker in 2003 - and published 10 years later - found evidence of an "almost routine use of opiates" since 1998. Speaking in the Commons, Mr Hunt asked why it had taken 10 years for this to be made public. 'Closing of ranks' At the launch of the inquiry four years ago, former Care Minister Norman Lamb said it would address what he called "unanswered questions" about the care of those who died. "There has been a real systemic failure here. . . a closing of ranks in my view," he said. The Lib Dem MP has now called for an "independent and thorough" police investigation. Shadow Health Secretary Jonathan Ashworth said the "substantial" 370-page report would take time to absorb. "Families were too readily dismissed, it's shameful," he said. As well as hundreds of death certificates, the panel analysed documents from the police, coroners, the NHS and other organisations. The panel included geriatric medicine specialist Dr Colin Currie, investigative journalist David Hencke, former Scotland Yard Commander Duncan Jarrett and pathology and medical records expert Dr Bill Kirkup.
  8. Protesters have barracked a Trump administration official as she dined at a Mexican restaurant in Washington DC. The activists heckled Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen at the eatery near the White House. The Trump administration is facing international pressure to drop its new policy of taking migrant children from their parents. They include babies and toddlers sent to three "tender age" shelters, the Associated Press news agency reports. The Metro DC Democratic Socialists of America claimed responsibility for Tuesday evening's protest against the homeland security secretary. Her security detail kept the demonstrators from approaching too near her table at the back of the restaurant. The activists shouted: "How do you sleep at night?" "If kids don't eat in peace, you don't eat in peace." "Do you hear the babies crying?" "Aren't you a mother, too?" Ms Nielsen later tweeted: "I will work tirelessly until our broken immigration system is fixed, our borders are secure and families can stay together." President Donald Trump has said the homeland security secretary "did a fabulous job" defending the controversial policy at a news conference this week. Meanwhile, a former Trump campaign manager made fun of a story about a 10-year-old girl with Down's syndrome who was reportedly separated from her mother after crossing the border illegally. Appearing on Tuesday on Fox News, Corey Lewandowski sarcastically said "womp, womp", as a Democratic party aide said the girl had been "taken from her mother and put in a cage". The Democratic adviser, Zac Petkanas, shouted repeatedly: "How dare you!" The unconfirmed report of the so-called tender age shelters for babies and toddlers drove an MSNBC news anchor on Tuesday night to almost break down in tears. When she first received the breaking news report from the Associated Press, Rachel Maddow paused. "This is incredible. Trump administration officials have been sending babies and other young children..." she trailed off, before covering her mouth and saying she was unable to continue. In a USA Today op-ed, Attorney General Jeff Sessions wrote that the migrant children "get better care than a lot of American kids do". Tom Homan, the acting director of Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, told CNN: "If you want to blame someone for separating families, blame the parents who choose to break the law." On Tuesday, a group of US lawmakers were denied entry to a detention centre for migrant children in Homestead, Florida. Nearly 1,000 children are being held there, according to homeland security officials. "This is an absolute outrage," said Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, standing outside the facility. This is not the first time lawmakers have been turned away from visiting migrant shelters, which now contain nearly 12,000 children, according to government figures. There is anecdotal evidence that the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" crackdown, launched last month, may be achieving its objective of deterring migrants crossing the border illegally. Salvadoran postman Cen Epigmenio told Reuters news agency he hoped to cross the Mexican border into the US in the coming months. But the 40-year-old said he and his wife have postponed their plans for fear of being separated from their two sons, Axel, nine, and Steven, three. He said he was fleeing gang violence at home. "As things stand today, it's difficult, because if you get caught, they take your kids away. I think I'm going to stay here, in Mexico, and establish myself." Another Salvadoran migrant, Lucia Carmen Flores Sanchez, who is travelling overland with her eight-year-old daughter, told the New York Times a similar story.
  9. Passengers who bought cheap British Airways flights say they are angry after their tickets were cancelled because the prices were wrong. The airline said it had sent incorrect fares to a number of travel agents for flights to Tel Aviv and Dubai. Ash Dubbay, from London, says he had booked a return flight to Tel Aviv for £195 but now has to pay about £1,000. BA has apologised and offered full refunds and a £100 voucher. The company refused to say how many were affected. Mr Dubbay, from Golders Green, said he booked his tickets for Tel Aviv two-and-a-half weeks before he was due to travel. He said he booked the flights through a travel agent, Travel Up, for a three-day trip for a family wedding and memorial service. Travel Up have been contacted for comment. Mr Dubbay said he thought the tickets were cheap but "not far-fetched" and comparable with other airlines. He said the firm should honour the flights, which were advertised for several hours. Mr Dubbay said he was "annoyed and angry" and the voucher would be of "no help" as it will not cover the cost difference for new flights. He said: "I'm very disappointed and let down by British Airways. "If I wanted to cancel my tickets I wouldn't have been able to but it seems like they can just do what they want." Another customer, Esther Vadia, had booked six tickets to Tel Aviv for £167 each and a seventh for her son later in the year for £195. 'Not excessively cheap' All have been cancelled. She says she is unable to afford to pay for other flights and although she will be refunded, she will still have to pay credit card fees for the cancelled tickets. Ms Vadia also said she would end up losing more than £1,000 on non-refundable accommodation in Israel. She said: "If you go to a supermarket and buy something for cheap, they cannot come after you later and say you have to give it back. "So how can an airline do that? Besides, I don't think the tickets were so cheap as to be unbelievable." Hanna Simon, another passenger, also said she did not believe the flights were "excessively cheap". She said she was particularly frustrated as she had corresponded with BA about add-ons to her flight and no problem had been raised by the airline. Several people the BBC spoke to also said they had not been informed of the cancellation and only found out when they checked their online accounts. They also said the £100 voucher was "useless" as, aside from "restrictive" terms and conditions, the flights were now costing much more than that. BA said in a statement: "Errors like this are exceptionally rare, and if they do occur, under contract law, there is no binding contract between the parties. "We have apologised to customers and offered a gesture of goodwill." Guy Anker, deputy editor of MoneySavingExpert.com, said BA should "do the right thing" and let the passengers "fly at the price they booked". He said: "While this may have been a 'rare' error, it's not the passengers' error. "They've bought these tickets in good faith at a believable price - it's not as though the tickets cost £5, which would clearly have been a glitch." 'Odd one' Jack Sheldon, founder of Jack's Flight Club, said "fare errors" were not uncommon but in almost 70% of cases the airline would honour the tickets. He said: "They honour it because it's bad PR to cancel tickets. "This is an odd one. In cases where tickets are cancelled it is usually because the ticket was supposed to be say £400 but was sold for £40. "In this case the error doesn't seem to have been that big and a typical customer could well have thought this was a genuine fare."
  10. Israeli jets have struck Palestinian militant positions in the Gaza Strip after rockets and mortars were fired into Israel, the Israeli military says. Twenty-five targets linked to the Hamas movement were hit overnight in response to a barrage of about 45 projectiles. Two Hamas security personnel are reported to have been lightly injured. The escalation came hours after Israel bombed three sites in retaliation for the launching of incendiary kites and balloons over the Gaza border. Israeli officials say the crude devices have sparked more than 450 fires in recent weeks, burning 2,800 hectares of land and causing $2m (£1.5m) of damage. Palestinians began launching kites and balloons carrying containers of burning fuel and explosive devices during mass protests at which Gaza health officials say more than 120 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces since 30 March. The demonstrations have seen thousands of Palestinians gather on the border in support of the declared right of Palestinian refugees to return to their ancestral homes in what is now Israel. Human rights groups have accused Israeli troops of using excessive force during the protests. Israel has said they have only opened fire in self-defence or on people trying to infiltrate its territory under the cover of the protests. Early on Wednesday morning, the Israeli military announced that its warplanes had struck three military targets in a Hamas compound in southern Gaza in response to the incendiary kite and balloon attacks. The military said Hamas, which dominates Gaza, was responsible for all events in the coastal territory and would "bear the consequences". Not long afterwards, sirens were sounded across southern Israel and the Israeli military said it had detected rocket and mortar fire emanating from Gaza. Israeli jets subsequently struck another eight targets in three Hamas military compounds as well as a cement factory, according to the military. Following further rocket launches, Israeli warplanes carried out a third round of strikes, this time hitting 11 targets in four military compounds. Israeli officials say six rockets fired from Gaza landed inside populated areas, causing damage to buildings and vehicles but no casualties. One rocket exploded just outside a kindergarten. At least three people were injured in Israeli strikes on southern Gaza, two in the town of Rafah and one in neighbouring Khan Younis, according to the Palestinian news agency Wafa. Residents told Reuters news agency that two were Hamas security men. "The sounds and explosions reminded us of the nights of summer of 2014," one Gaza resident told the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, referring to the last major conflict between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza. The Israeli military warned Hamas that it was "dragging the Gaza Strip and its civilians down a deteriorating path". A Hamas spokesman praised the attacks, insisting it was "a legitimate right that bombing is met with bombing" but he did not say who was behind them.
  11. A leading crypto-coin exchange has halted trade after declaring that hackers had stolen some of the digital currencies it stored. Seoul-based Bithumb said that 35bn won (£24m; $31.6m) worth of cyber-cash had been "seized" overnight, adding that it would fully compensate affected customers. The values of Bitcoin, Ethereum and Ripple all fell on the news. It is the second time in less than a year that Bithumb has been breached. Last July, it acknowledged an employee's PC had been hacked - exposing users' personal details. South Korea's spy agency later accused North Korea of being responsible after the stolen information was used to carry out scams. Cold wallet Bithumb notified a local regulator - the Korea Internet and Security Agency - of the latest attack, shortly before alerting the public via social media. "Some crypto-currencies valued [at] about $30m was stolen," it posted in a since deleted tweet. In subsequent posts - which are still online - it added: "All deposit and withdrawal services will be stopped to make sure [of our] security... We are providing compensation... Bithumb urgently asks our valuable customers not to deposit any funds into Bithumb wallet addresses for the time being." The firm provided a Google-shortened link with further information, but it appears to have been blocked by the search firm for unspecified reasons. An earlier post on Bithumb's Twitter account reveals that it had announced that a database upgrade was being carried out as part of a security update late last week. It added that it had transferred assets to a "cold wallet" - a term used to refer to external storage unconnected to the internet - as part of the process. However, it is unclear whether this is linked to the reported theft. The Yonhap news agency has reported that police officers have launched an investigation and collected records from computers at the company's headquarters. The incident comes just over a week after another South Korean crypto-currency exchange, Coinrail, reported that it had been the victim of a separate attack in which hackers had stolen 40bn won worth of virtual coins. Bithumb is, however, the bigger of the two operations, and represents the world's sixth busiest crypto-cash trading platform, according to the news site Coindesk. At the time of writing, one bitcoin was trading at $6,626.19 (£5,035) - representing a 1.4% drop from its level before news of the heist spread.
