Kashmir leaders under house arrest as unrest grows – BBC News

Tensions are high in Indian-administered Kashmir amid speculation that a law which grants the state’s residents unique privileges including property rights could be revoked.

Top politicians in Indian-administered Kashmir have been put under house arrest, days after thousands of troops were deployed to the disputed region.

Public meetings have been banned and reports say mobile networks and the internet have been restricted.

Last week authorities also ordered tourists and Hindu pilgrims to leave, citing a “terror threat” against an annual pilgrimage to a major shrine.

It is unclear what is behind the latest moves, which have stoked tensions.

Parliament to vote again on Brexit – BBC News

The British government has confirmed that parliament will vote on Brexit again on Friday, but only on one part of the deal reached with the European Union.
Members of parliament will vote on the withdrawal agreement including the Irish ‘backstop’, divorce bill and citizens’ rights.

But it will not amount to a third ‘meaningful vote’ on the deal, as it will not include a vote on the UK’s future relationship with the EU.

Meanwhile the British Chambers of Commerce said MPs need to stop “chasing rainbows” when it comes to resolving the Brexit impasse. At their annual conference, they said the Brexit uncertainty is already doing “real world damage” to the UK economy.

The 29th March was meant to be the day that Britain left the European Union. The BBC has been talking to voters in Weston-Super-Mare in North Somerset, where like the UK as a whole, they voted 52 to 48 in favour of Leaving.

Theresa May: No third vote on Brexit deal yet – BBC News

Theresa May has ruled out a third Commons vote on her Brexit deal on Tuesday.

She tells MPs there is not enough support in Parliament at the moment for another meaningful vote, but she continues to have discussions with MPs to see if they can be convinced to vote for the deal.

In her statement to MPs, she says that the EU Council has reiterated again that there “could be no re-opening of the withdrawal agreement”.

The UK has an extension to 11pm on the 12th of April, she says, in the event that no deal is agreed by Parliament.

Any further extension, and the UK will need to take part in elections for the European parliament.

A gunman has opened fire inside a tram and at several other locations in the Dutch city of Utrecht, authorities say.

Dutch anti-terrorism co-ordinator Pieter-Jaap Aalbersberg said all efforts were now focused on catching the gunman. He also said there could be more than one perpetrator.

The threat level has been temporarily raised to its highest point in the province of Utrecht.

Heavily armed police are reportedly gathered outside a house on a street near the 24 Oktoberplein junction, where the tram attack took place, with reports they are preparing to launch a raid.
