Two British teenagers killed and another injured parasailing in Greece
A rope holding their parachute reportedly snapped in the incident in Rhodes

Two British teenagers have been killed and a third seriously injured after a rope holding their parasailing parachute snapped.

The trio, believed to be siblings, were found on rocks near Lindos on the island of Rhodes.

High winds caused the group to drift towards the rocks after their parachute broke, Greek media reported.

“A 13-year-old girl and a young man of 15 were found dead on the rocks near the city of Lindos in Rhodes,” the Greek coastguard’s press office said.

The coastguard and fire service found a third British teenager, also aged 15, on rocks nearby, who is now in a critical condition in hospital.

Apparently a third resident on Zakynthos has passed away due to coronavirus, a 56 y-o male who had been hospitalised for the past 23 days.

Labour suspends Jeremy Corbyn over reaction to anti-Semitism report

Sir Keir Starmer has suspended Jeremy Corbyn after an inquiry found Labour responsible for "unlawful" harassment and discrimination when he was leader.

The UK's human rights watchdog, in a report on anti-Semitism in the party, also said Mr Corbyn's office had "politically interfered" in the complaints process.

Mr Corbyn said the scale of the problem had been "dramatically overstated".

Labour then said it was suspending him for a "failure to retract" this remark.

France attack: Three stabbed to death in 'Islamist terrorist attack'

Three people have died in a knife attack at a church in Nice, in what French President Emmanuel Macron said was an "Islamist terrorist attack".

He said France would not surrender its core values after visiting the Notre-Dame basilica in the southern city. Thousands of troops are being deployed to protect churches and schools.

In Nice, one elderly victim was "virtually beheaded", officials said. Another woman and a man also died.

A male suspect was shot and detained.
