UK police arrest three suspected right-wing extremists over 3D-printed firearm in counter-terrorism raids — RT World News From “RT World News”



Two men and a woman have appeared in Westminster Magistrates Court charged with possessing articles connected with an act of terrorism in relation to a 3D-printed firearm. The trio were detained in UK counter-terrorism raids.

Liam Hall, Daniel Wright and Stacey Salmon, who appeared in court via video-link on Friday, were arrested by counter-terrorism police during a raid on May 1, along with a fourth defendant, Samuel Whibley, who seperately faces a number of terrorism charges.The suspects have been accused by British authorities of being part of an extreme-right terrorist social media group, with police claiming that Whibley ran the channel on encrypted messaging service Telegram.Investigators said that during their raid on Wright’s property, they discovered a file showing an image of the Oklahoma City bomber, Timothy McVeigh, which was intended to encourage terrorism. McVeigh was executed in 2001 for killing 168 people in the 1995 bombing – one of the deadliest domestic terrorism attacks in US history.The group made no plea during Friday’s hearing, and the defendants were remanded in custody to appear for another hearing in the UK’s Old Bailey court at the end of the month.

Macron’s party joins rightwing rival for regional vote From “World News Headlines, Latest International News, World Breaking News – Times of India”



PARIS: Emmanuel Macron’s centrists will team up with a rightwing rival for a key test in French regional elections next month, officials said Sunday, the latest sign that the president has failed to build up a compelling political force at the local level. Prime Minister Jean Castex told the Journal du Dimanche newspaper that the Republic on the Move (LREM) would withdraw its slate of candidates for the southern city of Marseille and the surrounding region. Instead they will line up behind Renaud Muselier, a veteran force in an area where the far right is hoping to make further inroads ahead of next year’s presidential election. The move divided Muselier’s fellow Republicans, whose leadership swiftly denounced a deal that could jeopardise the party’s performance in the regional elections set for June 20 and 27. Castex said it was too early to say if similar pacts would be made elsewhere. Macron’s party suffered a humiliating rout in municipal elections last year, with his candidates winning only a handful of seats while the Greens surged and traditional left and right parties saw respectable performances. Analysts say that after sweeping to power in 2017 with a pledge of upending politics as usual, Macron has had only marginal success in developing an effective party apparatus for his centrist platform. He has also seen his popularity weaken amid criticism that he has favoured the wealthy with tax cuts and pro-business policies. Opinion polls suggest next year’s presidential vote will again see him face far-right leader Marine Le Pen, who is hoping to capitalise on the populist anger revealed by the “yellow vest” protests of 2018 and 2019.
