Saturday, 11th January Daily Roundup
Here’s a quick summary of what has happened around the world over the last 24 hours, brought to you exclusively by British Herald.
Prince Harry and his wife Meghan can expect less intense local media scrutiny than they have faced in Britain should they move to Canada, experts said on Friday, though international press attention will be impossible to avoid. Meghan returned to Canada to be with their son after the couple provoked a rift with Britain’s royal family by unexpectedly announcing they would be stepping back from their roles to spend more time in North America.
Back in London, Transport for London (TfL) announced that the delayed multi-billion-pound Crosstrail line’s central section shall open by summer 2021, slightly ahead of forecasts. U.S. rejected Britain’s formal request regarding the extradition of the wife of a U.S. diplomat who fleed the country last year after involvement in a fatal road crash which killed a 19-year old boy Harry Dunn. Prosecutors in Britain are seeking Anne Sacoolas’ extradition over the crash from August last year where Dunn was killed while riding his motorbike.
Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, one of the Middle East’s longest serving rulers who maintained the country’s neutrality in regional struggles, died on Friday and state media said his cousin Haitham bin Tariq al-Said was named his successor. Oman declared three days of official mourning with flags to be flown at half-mast for 40 days for the Western-backed Qaboos, 79, who ruled since taking over in a bloodless coup in 1970 with the help of former colonial power Britain.
