Vaccini, i cinque criteri per decidere se estenderli a tutti i bambini

Vaccino per l’influenza sì o no, per i bambini da sei mesi a 14 anni? La risposta non è facile, perché da un lato la circolare ministeriale che regola le raccomandazioni in materia indica l’opportunità solo nei piccoli a rischio, dall’altro il Calendario vaccinale per la vita consiglia di estenderlo a tutti i bimbi sani in età prescolare. Il rischio di restare confusi c’è, per questo l’Associazione Culturale Pediatri ha pubblicato un documento in cui indica i cinque criteri che un vaccino deve avere perché possa essere promosso, una prima base oggettiva da cui partire per decidere nel caso dell’influenza (e da ricordare sempre, quando si giudica l’opportunità anche di altri vaccini).

The South Korean president, Moon Jae-in, is due to hold talks in the White House with Donald Trump on Tuesday amid growing uncertainty over Trump’s planned North Korean summit in Singapore next month.

Trump was reported by the New York Times to have been “surprised and angered” by a statement from a senior North Korean official last week that said the regime would never trade away its nuclear arsenal and would not settle for a “one-sided” outcome to Trump’s summit with Kim Jong-un, due to take place on 12 June.

How to topple a dictator: the rebel plot that freed the Gambia

After 22 years, Yahya Jammeh seemed unassailable. His brutal and reckless rule was finally ended by a small but courageous resistance

On Saturday 13 August 2016, six bodyguards from the protection detail of the Gambia’s president, Yahya Jammeh, squeezed into a rental car and drove to the sprawling coastal town of Serekunda. They stopped in Senegambia, the capital’s famous party street, where music blares from bars and white tourists walk around in flip-flops hand-in-hand with young lovers. The men drank some juice and nibbled at some food as they awaited nightfall.

At 1am, when they considered it was safe to move, they got back in the car and drove towards the headquarters of Jammeh’s ruling party, the Alliance for Patriotic Reorientation and Construction (APRC). They stopped a little distance from the building and peered through the darkness. The building seemed empty. After circling it twice they parked the car 300 metres away. There was only one guard, in a small shed close to the entrance.

He stars in TV ads calling for impeachment and has set up a “Need to Impeach” campaign to build national support for removing the president. The House minority leader, Nancy Pelosi, doesn’t think so. She says talking about impeachment is “a gift to Republicans”. The former Senate majority leader Harry Reid also doesn’t think so. “I’ve been through impeachment,” he said, “and they’re not pleasant.”

So who is right?

Marawi one year after the battle: a ghost town still haunted by threat of Isis

A year after conflict started, residents of the ‘Islamic capital’ of the Philippines don’t know when or if they will be able to return home

The green Bato Ali mosque on Marawi’s Gomisa Avenue is a heartbreaking reminder of the fierce battles the military fought to stop supporters of Islamic State (Isis) from carving out a caliphate in the Philippines.

The dome, minaret and walls are pockmarked by bullets, shrapnel and gaping holes punched out by bombs. One of the largest allows sunlight to enter the basement underneath the mosque, where militants were once holed up with hostages including a Catholic priest.

Terry Crews: Marvel, toxic masculinity and life after #metoo

The Deadpool 2 star made his name as the NFL player-turned-comedic gentle giant. Now, in the wake of his own sexual abuse allegations, he’s become the voice of the male #metoo movement

Terry Crews sits in the cabana of his Pasadena mansion looking out at a spectacular view of the San Gabriel mountains. With mounting emotion, he speaks with trepidation about the future of his career: “Lincoln freed the slaves but was killed. Martin Luther King did the I Have a Dream speech and he was murdered. Hollywood has seen a couple of murders, too. The mindset is: sit tight, we’ll get you. Retaliation is real. You say something now but there will be backlash against anybody who comes forward.”

‘I had no real interest in politics, until this’ – Ireland’s accidental abortion activists
On 25 May, voters in Ireland will decide whether to legalise abortion. Doctors, grandparents and those who have been forced to travel the UK to seek terminations have been raising their voices in a bid to shift the narrative

In September 1983, article 40.3.3 – the eighth amendment – was voted into the Irish constitution. It equated the life of the “unborn” with that of the mother. It gave rise to a ban on abortion in all circumstances from the moment of conception. It also led to a grave national silence, whereby abortion was outsourced to neighbouring jurisdictions, with Britain becoming a place of medical refuge for at least 168,703 Irish women.

Now, just less than 35 years later, a grassroots mobilisation of doctors, lawyers, parents, grandparents, tech professionals, psychologists, fashion designers, artists, midwives, nurses and more has led to an unstoppable revolution and a referendum on 25 May, which may well result in the amendment finally being removed from the Irish constitution. Siobhan Donohue is one such accidental activist. “I never in my wildest dreams thought I would be sitting here talking about my abortion,” says Donohue. “I never put my head up about anything. I was the kid who never talked in class. I did everything by the book. I had no real interest in politics, until this, until I felt this sense of outrage.”

Central African leaders turn to constitutional changes to cement power

Burundi president’s power grab is latest by a number of regional leaders to have raised term limits or bolstered their powers

Voters in Burundi have backed wide-ranging constitutional changes that will reinforce the power of the president, Pierre Nkurunziza, potentially allowing him to rule for up to 14 more years after his current term expires in 2020.

The measures were approved by 75% of voters, with 17% opposed, on a reported turnout of 98%.

Ireland’s abortion referendum is revolutionary politics, whoever wins | Lizzie O’Shea

Women’s reproductive rights have been ill-served by top-down politics. The campaign to repeal the eighth should inspire us all

No matter what happens in Ireland’s abortion referendum on Friday, the campaign should serve as an inspiration. For too long, women in Ireland and elsewhere have paid the price for the notion that abortion is electoral poison and no good will come of politicians campaigning on it.

The eighth amendment to the Irish constitution, introduced in 1983 and valuing the life of the mother and foetus equally, in effect prohibited lawmakers from regulating abortion. This law has had insidious and devastating consequences. In 1992 women were given the right to travel abroad to obtain an abortion, and about 170,000 women have, usually to England, effectively sweeping the issue under the carpet. In 2012 the case of Savita Halappanavar brought the issue back home. Seventeen weeks pregnant, she went to hospital in pain and began to miscarry. She was denied an abortion and later died of septicaemia. Partly as a result of this tragic case, the sense grew that this law had generated a crisis in women’s health, but there was little appetite to take the necessary steps to achieve reform.

Cannes of worms: true gender equality in film will take more than 'just add women'

Women working solo direct 15% of new releases – but many of those films aren’t widely screened. The problem’s not just access, but gatekeeping too

Last weekend at the Cannes film festival, eyes were fixed not on the flickering images of a distant screen but on 82 women paused dramatically on the steps of the Palais.

Filmmakers, actors and lobbyists led by jury head Cate Blanchett and veteran filmmaker Agnes Varda took the red carpet opportunity of Eva Husson’s new film, Girls of the Sun, to give stark statistical visibility to a stubborn industrial deficit.

When we cheer the royals, democracy suffers. What a retrograde moment | Suzanne Moore

Meghan Markle brings glamour to the royals, and they benefit enormously, but Broken Britain can’t be patched together by pageantry and a kiss

A friend texts from the US: “Is the monarchy safe for another 100 years now?” Yes, I tell him, I think it is. Saturday was a sunny day and we were brought a vision of ourselves as open, inclusive, free of politicians, full of celebs and horses; this was balm itself. The two people at the centre of it all radiated love, there was a gospel choir and a preacher, and a single mother sitting all alone with immense dignity. I was happy for them.

Meghan is a self–declared feminist, while Harry is a besotted prince. Thus the institution renews itself and there is a mood of self-congratulation. Look at us! We are not a mean-spirited, racist country, because we have let a little bit of the “other” into our theme-park monarchy. This is symbolically important: a woman does not have to be white to get her prince. The fairytale opens the door and in slips the wondrous Meghan.

Most Australians don't know their head of state. This doesn't help the republicans | Peter Lewis

Australian republicans will have to reinvent themselves to make a compelling case for their mission

It may take some of the shine off the Markle sparkle, but the majority of Australians luxuriating under the warm doona of the royal nuptials were blissfully unaware they were celebrating the family that legally reigns over them.

This wedding was more than a cross-Atlantic celebrity romance, it was the union of an American TV star with the man who is sixth in line to be Australia’s head of state. Among the little darlings running down the aisle were those who are third and fourth in line to rule over Australia; the best man is second in line, while the fella who stepped in to give the bride away is next cab off the rank (number five is currently too young to reign over anyone and was off to the side in the arms of his mother).

The real war within the Tory party? It starts after Brexit | Rafael Behr

Party modernisers are trying to attract young people with liberal views just as the party absorbs a huge number of ex-Ukippers

It is a snowy December day in New York. Tom Hagen, consigliere to one of the city’s mafia bosses, is stopped on the street by Virgil Sollozzo, a big-time drug-runner, who invites him to get in a car. Fearing a hit, Hagen hesitates. “What are you worried about?” says Sollozzo. “If I wanted to kill you, you’d be dead already.”

I don’t know if Theresa May is a fan of The Godfather, but even if she isn’t familiar with the film, she should recognise that scene. She has been in it enough times. The prime minister has often looked like a hostage in the back of a car driven by backbench Tory MPs. They surround her as she is going about her Brexit business and make her offers she can’t refuse.

The recent mass shootings in the US all have one thing in common: misogyny | Jessica Valenti

The longer we ignore the toxic masculinity that underlies so many of these crimes, the more violence we’re enabling

The massacre at Santa Fe high school last week that left 10 people dead – most of them students – seems to have something in common with so many other mass shootings that happen in the US: misogyny. The shooter, one victim’s mother claims, targeted her daughter as the first victim because she rejected his continued harassing advances.

How many more tragedies have to happen before we recognize that misogyny kills? The longer we ignore the toxic masculinity that underlies so many of these crimes, the more violence we’re enabling.

Unai Emery’s grasp of detail can succeed at Arsenal after PSG problems

The tactically astute and well prepared Spaniard will find a more receptive audience in the Emirates dressing room than with an unruly PSG squad

Neymar is not one for ‘homework’, but that didn’t stop Unai Emery. “We are analysing some videos with him to see how he can grow,” said Emery last year, “especially in his positioning and how to work with his colleagues.” While Emery’s quiet meticulousness may have proven crucial in the past, spending 12 hours looking over videos for every game, with hindsight his persistence with the Brazilian should be regarded as having been a little optimistic.

Harry Kane will captain England at the summer’s World Cup finals after Gareth Southgate formalised his appointment and praised his “outstanding personal qualities”.

The Tottenham Hotspur forward, who boasts 12 goals from his 23 caps, had emerged as the favourite for a role Southgate has shared among his senior players to date. Kane first captained his country in last summer’s qualifying draw in Scotland, when his stoppage-time equaliser secured a point, and had worn the armband in three games since.

Record-setter LeBron James scores 44 as Cavaliers level series with Celtics
  • Cleveland beat Boston 111-102 in NBA Eastern Conference finals
  • Series is now square at 2-2 as teams head to Boston for Game 5
  • LeBron now has most field goals in NBA playoffs history

LeBron James scored 44 points, surpassed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar atop a postseason list and helped the Cleveland Cavaliers even the Eastern Conference finals at 2-2 on Monday night with a 111-102 victory over the Boston Celtics, who must be looking forward to getting home. Pushed on by a raucous crowd, the Cavs held off Boston’s comeback in the fourth quarter and squared a series that is now effectively a best-of-three.

Cleveland are trying to become the 20th team out of 300 to overcome a 2-0 deficit and James, who has already orchestrated two such rallies, is a step closer to a third. But to do it again the Cavs will have to win in Boston, where the Celtics are 9-0 this postseason.

West Ham appoint Manuel Pellegrini as manager on three-year deal

• Chilean agrees £7m-a-year deal after talks with David Sullivan
• Pellegrini will be given full control of transfers at London club

West Ham United have appointed Manuel Pellegrini as their new manager after concluding negotiations late on Monday night.

Pellegrini has signed a three-year deal worth up to £7m a year after meeting with David Sullivan, the co-owner, who had promised that the club would make a “high-calibre” appointment after parting company with David Moyes last week.

Newcastle United’s Rafael Benítez was high on the London Stadium club’s four-man shortlist and Sullivan also interviewed Shakhtar Donetsk’s Paulo Fonseca last Monday. Benítez’s contract contained a £6m release clause, however, and Fonseca ended up agreeing a new deal with Shakhtar. Unai Emery, who is set to join Arsenal, proved elusive after leaving Paris Saint-Germain and that made Pellegrini the frontrunner to replace Moyes.

Impact defender Michael Petrasso stepped on the 36-year-old’s foot in the 40th minute of the match in Montreal and the towering Swede retaliated with a slap to the back of Petrasso’s head.

Desire can deliver Champions League dream for Liverpool, says Jürgen Klopp
• Klopp says his team can overcome experience of Real Madrid
• Adam Lallana and Emre Can increase Klopp’s selection options

Jürgen Klopp believes Liverpool’s bravery, work-rate and desire for a sixth European Cup can compensate for Real Madrid’s greater experience when the sides meet in the Champions League final. Saturday’s contest in Kiev will be Real’s fourth Champions League final in five years, with Zinedine Zidane’s holders aiming to lift the trophy for a third consecutive season. No club has won a hat-trick of European Cups since Bayern Munich in 1974, 75 and 76.

Liverpool’s recent European record pales by comparison but having reached a first final in 11 years with several exhilarating performances and scored a competition record 40 goals en route, their manager is confident his team’s virtues can prove decisive in Ukraine.

Former world champion sues over alleged cover-up of sexual abuse by USA Swimming
  • Ariana Kukors Smith says she was abused by coach while a minor
  • USA Swimming says it did not find any evidence of misconduct

Olympic swimmer Ariana Kukors Smith is suing USA Swimming, alleging the governing body knew her former coach sexually abused her as a minor and covered it up.

Kukors Smith filed the lawsuit in Orange County, California. She alleges Sean Hutchison, who began coaching her at a swim club near Seattle, groomed her for sexual abuse when she was 13, started touching and kissing her when she was 16 and engaging in sexual activity with her when she was 17. Kukors Smith is also suing longtime Olympic coach Mark Schubert, saying he failed to report “a reasonable suspicion of child abuse or endangerment.”

Gaspar Noé: 'Six people walked out of Climax? No! I usually have 25%'

The director’s violent, sexually charged films repel as many viewers as they entrance – but at Cannes, almost everyone loved his latest, LSD-soaked dance drama Climax. So where did he go wrong?

The Cannes equivalent of a Sunday service is the 8.30am screening of Gaspar Noé’s Climax, in a basement cinema beside the casino. Once inside, the congregation (all sleep-deprived, many hungover) are treated to the complete matins, a kind of prolonged grand-mal seizure set to music. There’s sex and there’s violence. There’s coke-snorting and mouth-frothing. A corridor is patrolled by a lumbering giant wearing a fright wig and a kilt. A utility closet contains a hysterical child screaming about cockroaches. And then, near the end, we get a sermon printed on the screen in letters 10ft tall. “Death is an extraordinary experience,” it says.

The Franco-Argentine director has grown used to outraging audiences, driving punters from the theatre like a shepherd chasing his flock. But here’s the thing: Climax is promptly greeted by almost uniformly glowing reviews. Critics are claiming it’s his most fully realised, purely exciting film to date. And now, for perhaps the first time in his life, it’s Noé’s turn to be outraged. He says: “I must be doing something wrong. I have to take a long holiday and rethink my career.”

Patrick Melrose captures heroin addiction perfectly – my memories flooded back | John Crace

A new TV drama based on Edward St Aubyn’s books captures the untold truth of heroin addiction – the blood, dirty hits and banality. For one former addict, it brought a harrowing decade back to life

I never flew on Concorde. I seldom dared leave London during my 20s. I was never sexually abused by my father. (I somehow managed to hate myself enough without being forced to endure that horror.) I never shot up heroin in the penthouse suite of a flash, New York hotel. I shot up heroin in grubby bedrooms and the back of cars.

But to concentrate on the differences between Patrick Melrose and me is to commit a major category error. Edward St Aubyn’s five semi-autobiographical novels contain some of the most viscerally accurate depictions ever written of what it means – and how it feels – to be an addict. And watching them come to life in the virtuoso performance by Benedict Cumberbatch in the new TV drama has brought the memories flooding back. In just a few hours of television, superbly scripted by David Nicholls, the checklist has been near-enough complete.

Ibiza review – breezy and raucous Netflix comedy is a fun night in

Gillian Jacobs heads up a strong trio of female comic actors in a knockabout trip around Europe that squeezes moments of hilarity into a barebones plot

Last year, in a belated attempt to redress the balance, a party busload of films was released that saw women drinking, partying and casual sexing in ways that have usually been reserved for their male counterparts. There was Scarlett Johansson dealing with the death of a stripper in the dark, intermittently funny Rough Night, Toni Collette and Molly Shannon leaving the kids at home in Fun Mom Dinner, the cast of Bad Moms returning with diminishing returns in A Bad Moms Christmas and Tiffany Haddish transforming into a one woman comic phenomenon in crowd-pleasing box office hit Girls Trip. The results were mixed but the message was clear: the post-Bridesmaids boom in comedies fronted by groups of very funny women was finally happening.

Frank Ocean's Blonde dissected: 'A cultural artefact that deserves to be studied'

Cole Cuchna of the podcast Dissect is devoting his third season to Frank Ocean deep dives – and aims to unpack a record extraordinarily rich in detail

For four years Ocean had made repeated promises about the record’s release date, only for him to miss his own deadlines. Fans desperate for new music began mocking his tardiness on social media. Ocean responded in kind by stamping all the record’s missed released dates on a library card.

The age of punk: Debbie Harry looks back on a defining era

As a new exhibition in New York celebrates classic punk images from the 70s and 80s, members of Blondie recall the era

When most people see a beat-up car abandoned on a street, they rubberneck for a second and move on. When Debbie Harry saw one lying upside down on a midtown Manhattan street in 1976, she thought, what a great place for a photo shoot! “It seemed really funny and glamorous to get a shot of me crawling from the wreckage,” said the Blondie singer as she gazed at the photo.

Ruby Tandoh’s recipe for barbecued malted milk, chocolate and raspberry s’mores

This fun dessert is a simple, delicious and delightfully messy way to end the day

You don’t want fussy desserts on a barbecue day. What you need is something easy and fun: for mum or dad to be forcibly ousted from their role as lord of the barbecue for a while (do it quick, before they martyr themselves over the coals), and for everyone else to entertain themselves around the embers, taking pudding into their own hands. S’mores are perfect for this.

Toasting the marshmallows is great fun for little ones, but you’ll want to keep a close eye to make sure the kids don’t end up toasted themselves.

'Dynamic' Dundee earns place on Lonely Planet's Best in Europe 2018 hotlist

The truth about obesogens: can dust and chemicals make you fat?

Researchers suspect that taking your shoes off, getting rid of carpets and dusting can prevent chemicals building up that may affect our hormones – and our waistlines. But is it good science?

With 26% of adults classified as obese in the UK in 2016, the hunt for causes and solutions to expanding waistlines is on. While public health messages have focused largely on the food we eat, some scientists suspect there is another factor at play: substances being dubbed as “obesogens” – found in our packaging, household goods and furnishings that might affect our hormones and the buildup of fat in the body.

However, experts are sceptical, particularly in the light of one report this week. It has made the bold claim that “removing shoes when entering the house and swapping carpet for wooden floors could help people stay slim”, citing a talk by researchers at the universities of Aveiro and Beira Interior in Portugal, who have suggested that preventing obesogens accumulating in the house by frequently sweeping and dusting could stop us gaining weight.

The ethics of wearing feathers: it's not just live-plucking that's a problem

They are fluttering down catwalks and even appeared at the royal wedding, but for some activists all feathers are stolen property – whether or not they involve cruelty

The red carpet has been a hotbed of sartorial protest this year, with influential people opting to express their politics through their wardrobe. But as many celebrities scramble for the moral high ground, some controversial guests have slipped under the radar. They go by a few names – marabou, ostrich, peacock – and accompanied Angelina Jolie to the Critics’ Choice awards, Lupita Nyong’o to the Cannes film festival and Katy Perry to the Met Gala.

Yes, feathers are suddenly everywhere again – not only in the wardrobes of glossy style icons, but also on embellished fascinators (as worn by the Duchess of Cornwall at the royal wedding) and in a sizeable proportion of the nation’s pillows, parkas and duvets. Yet, in some quarters, there is a growing discomfort with them.

Proust's love letters to composer go on display before Paris auction

Great-niece is selling literary manuscripts, books and letters that shed new light on author

In March 1896, Marcel Proust sat down to compose a letter to his first love and secret passion, the celebrated composer Reynaldo Hahn. The pair were the cultural beacons of their generation, but their relationship, known in their refined circle, was to remain secret from the public throughout their lives.

In his missive, in scrawled and often barely legible handwriting, Proust, then 24, writes: “I want you to be here all the time but as a god in disguise, whom no mortal would recognise.”

Sarah Achieng Opendi, state minister for health, told the Guardian the country’s national medical stores were running out of the antibiotic Septrin, which is used to treat and fight conditions like flu, malaria, diarrhoea and tuberculosis.

An activist who campaigned for Tibetan language education has been sentenced to five years in prison in China for “inciting separatism.” Tashi Wangchuk, who has been in jail for more than two years, was found guilty by a court in the western Chinese city of Yushu, according to his lawyers.

Tashi was detained in 2016 after appearing in a New York Times documentary talking about his campaign for Tibetan language in local schools. The video, “A Tibetan’s Journey for Justice,” followed Tashi as he travelled from a Tibetan area of Qinghai province to Beijing where he attempted to file a lawsuit against local officials for contravening China’s constitution, which maintains that all ethnicities in China “have the freedom to use and develop their own spoken and written languages”.

The fall of 'Italy’s Stalingrad': symbol of left wages war on migrants and poor

The closure of its factories hit Sesto hard, but when the perpetrator of the Berlin truck attack was shot there, the former leftwing stronghold turned right

Gramsci Avenue, May Day Square, Karl Marx library … even today the streets of Sesto San Giovanni recall its past as the “Stalingrad of Italy”. For more than seven decades, this suburb of Milan was ruled by the Communist party and its political heirs, but things have radically changed since the election of the new rightwing mayor, Roberto Di Stefano.

Begging, bivouacking in parks or streets and drinking alcohol in the open have all been banned. Those breaking the rules are expelled, and over the past year that has been the fate of more than 200 people – most of them homeless, street vendors or migrants.

Holograms: are they still the preserve of science fiction?

A projected Princess Leia in Star Wars suggested a 3D future, but we’ll have to wait a while before we are playing holochess

The fragile apparition endured only long enough to say: “Help me Obi Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope” before flickering out. But R2D2’s 3D projection gave millions of young eyes, including mine, their first taste of holograms, and planted unrealistic expectations of a future playing dejarik, the gruesome game of holographic chess played on board the Millennium Falcon.

The concept of the hologram was already familiar, invented in the 1940s by physicist Dennis Gabor, but since the force reawakened the idea almost 40 years later, things haven’t really moved on. Why aren’t real, moving, Leia-style holograms now part of our day-to-day lives?

Class act: the great Dalit fightback that started in the schoolroom

A network of free after-school coaching classes for Dalits is just one way that India’s lowest caste is raising its sights

When he was 14, Govind Gyan Chand started attending the large school near his village. In the first week, some upper-caste boys took him aside and asked him about his caste. He told them he was Dalit, considered the lowest caste in Indian society. When he left school for the day, the boys were waiting outside, and flogged him. “I don’t know why they did it,” he says. “All I know is the upper caste likes to torture us. I wanted to give up school – somehow I didn’t.”

Now 22, Chand divides his time between classes in college, working, and teaching English and maths to the Dalit children of his village. He is a volunteer for Bhim Pathshala, a network of free after-school coaching classes for Dalit children run by Bhim Army, an organisation that works for the education and rights of Dalits.

Untouchable no more: the Dalit bridegroom rejecting class prejudice | Amrit Dhillon

When a student from India’s lowest caste proposed to take his marriage procession past the homes of well-to-do Hindus, uproar ensued. Yet he is now poised for a significant victory

The dusty, nondescript road has long been a no-go area, on pain of death, for bridegrooms from the Dalit caste and their wedding processions.

In July, however, on a date yet to be fixed, Sanjay Kumar Jadav, 27, will lead his parade of male relatives – called the “baraat” – down the road in Nizampur village. The group will pass the houses of upper caste Hindus who fear they will be “tainted” by his passing, to where his fiancee Sheetal lives. There, the couple will be married.

Is Abramovich at last paying the price for being too close to Putin?

Chelsea’s owner is vulnerable to UK retaliation because of his proximity to Russian president

The pope says God made gay people just as we should be – here’s why his comments matter

Francis’s reported remarks show a new Catholic acceptance of LGBT people and confirm what many of us have always known: God doesn’t make mistakes

It is immensely powerful to hear that Pope Francis, the leader of the Roman Catholic church, reportedly told Juan Carlos Cruz, a gay man: “God made you like this and loves you like this.”

Cruz is a survivor of clerical abuse who spoke privately with the pope a few weeks ago, and has since reported his conversation to Spanish newspapers. His abuser, Fernando Karadima, was found guilty of abuse by the Vatican in 2011.

Maasai herders driven off land to make way for luxury safaris, report says

Honduran dam protesters face trial in ongoing crackdown against defenders

The ‘Jilamito Five’ are the latest to be caught up in battles over land and natural resources, that have seen more than 130 defenders killed since 2009

The suspects pray together on a concrete podium opposite the courthouse where they face criminal charges. Their alleged misdemeanour: “land invasion” during a protest against the construction of a dam. A guilty verdict could bring a jail term of up to four years.

If that seems harsh, then it’s because this is Honduras, where hundreds have been jailed and scores killed for environmental activism over the past decade. The accused – a teacher, hardware-store owner, farmers and the newly elected municipal mayor – are opposed to a dam on the Jilamito river in the tropical region of Atlántida. The authorities are hoping a prosecution will enable them to clear a makeshift community blockade in the remote hilly pastures so construction can begin.

While the city sleeps: London after hours – a photo essay

Photographer Sean Smith captures the city at night, from cabaret stars to road maintenance workers, homeless people to fire wardens

In the changing rooms backstage at Proud Cabaret in London, half a dozen performers are crammed together preparing themselves for the evening’s shows. As one liberally applies eye makeup, another fills the air with a cloud of hairspray. There are nipple tassels, high heels, leather and wigs. It’s 8pm and the night is about to begin.

“There’s always a buzzing atmosphere while everyone prepares for the doors to open,” says Fiona Jay-Brown, one half of the acrobatic duo Deux Ailes. “There are a lot of performers so it does get very busy backstage but we all do our best to get the show on the road. There’s rarely a backstage panic. Whether it’s missing tit-tape or hairspray running out, we all help each other out.”
