    Moscow taxi mounts pavement and injures people 'wearing Mexico colours'A taxi mounted the pavement near Moscow's Red Square on Saturday evening, ploughing into a group of people and injuring eight. Early reports say that Mexico fans are among the injured, as some of those involved were wearing Mexican team colours. Police said the driverlikely lost control of the vehicleand has been detained. Two ambulances quickly arrived at the scene and seven people were taken to hospital. There were no immediate details on the severity of the pedestrians' injuries, although a medical source told local media that none of them were grave. The driver, a citizen of Kyrgyzstan, said hedid not act on purpose, according to Moscow authorities. The taxi lost a bumper and toppled a parking sign during the incident Credit: Twitter Interfax media reported sources saying the driver may have been drunk. The accident took place on Ilinka Street, about 650 feetfrom Red Square andMoscow's famous GUM shopping arcade. Russia is currently hosting the World Cup andMoscowis one of 11 Russian cities where tournament games are being played. Although it did not initially appear to be deliberate, it will hardly lessen fears of a terrorist threat during the World Cup. Ambulances take injured people away in the aftermath of the accident Credit: Twitter Russia has earned the enmity of jihadi groups with its bombing campaign against the Islamic State and rebels in Syria, and Islamists have reportedly threatened fans at the tournament. Last year, 16 people were killed when a lone wolf attacker blew himself up in the metro in St Petersburg, the World Cup host city near where the England team is based for the tournament.

Tens of thousands of police have been deployed to World Cup cities, along with national guardsmen and Cossacks, the traditional caste of horse warriors. The taxi is towed away from the scene of the crash, just a few hundred yards from the Kremlin Credit: Reuters Anti-aircraft missiles and drone-jamming devices have been protecting the skies near stadiums. The influx of police into World Cup cities has been so great that police in at least one other city have worried crime could go up there.

  • Harvard accused of racism against Asian applicants
     

    Harvard accused of racism against Asian applicantsHarvard University has been accused of racism against Asian students because of perceived negative personality traits, according to court documents filed on Friday. The 388-year-old institution is being sued by Students for Fair Admissions, an action group, for discriminating against Asian applicants. The group commissioned an analysis of more than 160,000 applicants who applied for admission from 2000 to 2015, which showed that Asians were given lower scores on ?personality? traits - likability, courage, kindness and being ?widely respected?. It argues that if admitted on academic merit alone, the intake of Asian students at the prestigious university would be much higher. Ted Lieu, a congressman for California, blasted Harvard for appearing to "attribute personality traits based on race." He called the report ?outrageous?, adding that ?it feeds into historical damaging stereotypes about Asian-Americans.? Dear @Harvard: Your admissions policies against Asian-Americans are racist. Take your "personality trait" crap and shove it. How's that for "courage." Also, you need to apologize. https://t.co/WQXWAlYQ6E? Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) June 15, 2018 How do we know @Harvard is lying about its racist admissions policies against Asian-Americans? Because it won't release its own internal reviews from 2013 showing discrimination. Release the information Harvard. What are you hiding? Oh, and do you like my personality traits? https://t.co/LSgHBMl5Bh? Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) June 15, 2018 The Supreme Court has held race can be used as a factor in admissions. But what @Harvard appears to have done is attribute personality traits based on race. That is what is outrageous, because it feeds into historical damaging stereotypes about Asian-Americans. https://t.co/sHPut2Kd9T? Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) June 15, 2018 Students for Fair Admissions likened the report's findings of alleged discrimination to antisemitism in the 20th century. ?It turns out that the suspicions of Asian-American alumni, students and applicants were right all along,? the group said in a court document laying out the analysis. ?Harvard today engages in the same kind of discrimination and stereotyping that it used to justify quotas on Jewish applicants in the 1920s and 1930s.? In response, Harvard commissioned its own study, which described the report as ?incomplete and misleading?. The documents are a prelude to a trial scheduled for the autumn, and come at the same time as the US government?s justice department investigates Harvard?s admission policies for evidence of bias. The filings, which run to hundreds of pages and rely on data for individual applicants to the classes that entered Harvard between 2010 and 2015, give the public the most detailed look ever at Harvard?s method for selecting its incoming undergraduate class. Harvard, the oldest university in the US, remains its most selective. It admitted only 4.6 per cent of applicants this year, while Princeton and Columbia admitted 5.5 per cent, while Yale took 6.3 per cent of those wishing to attend. Barack Obama, who became president of the Harvard Law Review in 1990 - the first African American elected to the prestigious role Credit: AP Each Harvard applicant is given four component ratings - academic, extracurricular, athletic and personal - and an overall score that is assigned by taking all factors into account. Within each category, applicants are scored on a scale from one to six, with one being the best. Admissions decisions are made by a 40-person committee vote. The plaintiffs found in their analysis that Asian-American applicants have higher academic and extracurricular scores than any other racial group. However, Harvard?s admissions officers assign Asian-Americans the lowest score of any racial group on the personal rating, which includes a subjective assessment of character traits such as whether the student has a ?positive personality,? the plaintiffs said. ?Asian-Americans are described as smart and hardworking yet uninteresting and indistinguishable from other Asian-American applicants,? the plaintiffs said, after reviewing a sample of documents provided by Harvard with admissions officers? comments on applicants.

  • North Korea 'sought diplomatic back channel through Jared Kushner'
     

    North Korea 'sought diplomatic back channel through Jared Kushner'Jared Kushner was partly responsible for setting up a diplomatic back channel with North Korea that led to the Singapore summit. Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser was approached by an American businessman based in Singapore last year, the New York Times reported. Gabriel Schulze, whose family made a fortune in the mining business, told Mr Kushner that a highly placed North Korean official was seeking to speak with him to look into the possibility of a meeting between Mr Trump and Kim Jong-un. The approach came as tensions heightened between the two countries, and Mr Trump and Kim exchanged threats. Senior North Korean officials wanted to get in touch with Mr Kushner because of his family relationship to Mr Trump. Hidden trillions: What if North Korea?s economy opened up? They reportedly felt that, amid a rapid turnover of senior White House staff, Mr Kushner would continue to have influence with the president. Mr Kushner reported the possibility of a diplomatic back channel to Mike Pompeo, who was then the Director of the CIA, the New York Times reported. It might have been expected that Mr Kushner would tell the US State Department instead, but he did not have a good relationship with Rex Tillerson, then the Secretary of State. Mr Pompeo took the lead in negotiations with North Koreans and subsequently replaced Mr Tillerson as Secretary of State. The White House and the CIA declined to comment on Mr Kushner's role. Mr Schulze told the New York Times: "I do not discuss the nature of my business or personal relationships." Mr Kushner was also said to have been involved in the setting up a diplomatic back channel between Mr Trump's administration and China early in the presidency. Mr Kushner reportedly set up a diplomatic back channel through Cui Tiankai, China?s ambassador to Washington, which helped lead to Xi Jinping, the Chinese president, visiting Mr Trump at Mar-a-Lago, his Florida retreat in April last year. Meanwhile, it emerged that a former confidant of Mr Trump met with a Russian individual who offered "dirt" on Hillary Clinton for $2 million (1.5 million). Roger Stone, the confidant, told the Washington Post he rejected the offer in May 2016, telling the Russian: "You don?t understand Donald Trump. He doesn?t pay for anything." It also emerged that the Russian had previously been an FBI informant. Mr Stone, who met the man at a restaurant in Florida, said he appeared to have been the target of an "FBI sting".
