Alexander-Arnold pulls out of England squad

Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has withdrawn from the England squad for their Euro 2020 qualifiers due to a back injury. Alexander-Arnold had been struggling with the problem before linking up with England and on Wednesday it was decided the right-back wouldn't recover in time to feature against the Czech Republic and Montenegro. The 20-year-old has returned to Liverpool to continue treatment on the injury with a view to featuring for the Premier League leaders after the international break. «Trent Alexander-Arnold has withdrawn from the England squad and returned to Liverpool,» a Football Association statement read. «The right-back arrived nursing a back injury and, despite progress in recent days, it was unlikely he would be able to play a role in the forthcoming UEFA EURO 2020 qualifiers. »The 20-year-old will now continue his rehabilitation at his club leaving Gareth Southgate with a 22-man squad." World Cup semi-finalists England host the Czech Republic in their opening qualifier at Wembley on Friday before travelling to Montenegro for the second Group A match on Monday.

PN votes for suspension of Orban's Fidesz from EPP

The Fidesz party of firebrand Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban was suspended from the European People's Party Wednesday, the EU's biggest and most influential political grouping, the EPP said. The Nationalist Party voted in favour of the suspension. A total 190 party members voted in favour of the suspension, with only three against, after reports of long and often heated discussions with Orban at a meeting in Brussels. Fidesz had faced expulsion from the EPP after running a controversial billboard campaign that accused European Commission head Jean-Claude Juncker and liberal US billionaire George Soros, a bete-noire of Orban, of plotting to flood Europe with migrants. The campaign has since been dropped and Orban has apologised for insulting partners from the EPP - the mainstream conservative group of MEPs - though the party leadership had warned this was not enough. A statement said the suspension was a joint decision by Fidesz and the EPP in a last minute re-wording intended to stop Orban from slamming the door on the group forever. Sanctioning Orban has split the EPP, amid concern that the Hungarian leader will team up with Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini,...

Short walk once-a-week can lower risk of death

A brisk stroll once or twice a week is enough to reduce the risk of dying from heart attack, stroke or cancer, according to a statistical study of nearly 90,000 people released Tuesday. People who walked or gardened 10 minutes to an hour each week had an 18% lower risk of death from any cause compared to full-on couch potatoes, researchers reported in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. Two-and-a-half to five hours weekly of such «moderate physical activity» - broken into segments of no less than 10 minutes - resulted in a 31% reduction in risk, they found. And those who clocked up at least 25 hours almost halved the risk. Not everyone, however, has that much time to spend on leisure-time exercise, the authors acknowledged. Heart-pumping and pulse-quickening activities such as biking, running and competitive sports «are more time-efficient than moderate intensity activity,» they said. For cardiovascular disease alone, there was no additional benefit to be gained by graduating from five to 25 hours, they noted. Researchers led by Bo Xi, a professor in the Department of Epidemiology at Shandong University in northern China, sifted through data collected annually on 88,140...

Ornis Committee recommends spring hunt for quail

The Ornis Committee will be recommending to the government a spring hunt for quail from April 10 to 30, from two hours before sunrise up to midday, with no individual bag limit, and a national bag limit of 5,000 birds. The decision was taken with five votes for and two against. This followed a hunters proposal for a quail hunt between the above dates and a turtle dove hunt from April 15 to 30. In a statement, the hunters’ federation, FKNK, said it made its recommendation on the basis of its report “Traditional Turtle Dove Hunting in Spring on the Maltese Islands – Lifting of the Moratorium”. Committee members requested more time to evaluate the FKNK report, which urges the government to immediately lift the moratorium and open discussions with the EU Commission for a long term solution to be reached on the hunting of turtle doves. A decision on the turtle dove season will be taken at the next meeting to be held shortly.

Italy's Senate blocks Salvini migrant trial

Italy's Senate voted Wednesday to block the trial of far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini for allegedly illegally confining migrants rescued at sea by an Italian coastguard ship last year. Senators voted 237 to 61 in favour of the immunity commission's recommendation that Salvini, who heads the anti-immigrant League party, should not face trial. The case relates to the rescue in August of 190 people by Italy's Diciotti coast guard ship, who were left stuck at sea for five days without permission to dock. Thirteen migrants with health problems were eventually disembarked on Lampedusa island off Italy's southern tip. The ship then headed to Catania in Sicily, but was blocked for another five days before the remaining 177 migrants were allowed off. The permission came only once the interior minister had been assured that other European countries would take them in. A Catania prosecutor opened an investigation into the case but in November decided not to press charges. However, a ministers' tribunal, made up of three judges chosen at random, asked the Senate for permission to go ahead with a trial. Italy's constitution says that parliament can block proceedings if lawmakers...
