President Trump former aides want immunity to testify at hearings into alleged Russian meddling U.S. election

Mr. Michael Flynn's lawyer says his client "has a story to tell", but needs to guard against "unfair prosecution".The Senate opened its hearing earlier, with one member warning of Kremlin "propaganda on steroids".Mr Flynn was sacked in February after misleading the White House about his conversations with a Russian envoy.General Flynn certainly has a story to tell, and he very much wants to tell it, should the circumstances permit," said his attorney, Robert Kelner.He said he would not comment on his discussions with congressional panels investigating claims Moscow sought to help Donald Trump win the US presidential election.The lawyer said the media was awash with "unfounded allegations, outrageous claims of treason, and vicious innuendo".No reasonable person, who has the benefit of advice from counsel, would submit to questioning in such a highly politicized, witch-hunt environment without assurances against unfair prosecution," …

What's happened to the body of Kim Jong-nam?

Mr Kim's body was released to North Korea and flown to Beijing, where North Korean officials are expected to receive it.Malaysia had previously said they would not release the body until a request came from family members.On Thursday, Mr Najib said a formal request had been received from the family, but did not give further details. It is not known who exactly requested for the body.Mr Kim's own family previously lived in Macau but they are now thought to be in hiding.His son Kim Han-sol appeared in a video earlier this month confirming he was with his mother and sister at an unspecified location.

How was North Korea and Malaysia resolved their diplomatic crisis?

Malaysian officials have not hesitated in branding the return of their citizens as a triumph of diplomatic deal-making.On Friday morning Malaysian Foreign Minister Anifah Aman told reporters: "There can be no substitute for diplomacy, for level-headedness in dealing with such situations, and this has served Malaysia well in this instance."But the exact circumstances of how the deal was struck remain unclear.Correspondents say that Malaysia appears to have acceded to North Korea's wishes to get the Malaysians released.Mr Najib had said earlier that, after challenging negotiations, all North Koreans would be allowed to leave Malaysia - which probably includes North Korean suspects in the murder who are wanted by Malaysian police.Japanese news agency Kyodo said two men resembling two of the suspects were seen on a Beijing-bound flight transporting Mr Kim's body on Friday.The suspects are Hyon Kwang Song, the second secretary at the North Korean embassy in Kuala Lumpur, …

Nigeria APC goes to court over Obiano’s Local Government chairmen appointment

Almost 48 hours after Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State appointed transition caretaker council chairmen for the 21 local government areas in the state, the All Progressives Congress, APC, yesterday, vowed to contest the appointments in a court of law if they were not dissolved immediately.Addressing newsmen at the party’s secretariat, in Awka, the state chairman, Mr Emeka Ibe, described the appointments as illegal, unconstitutional and an aberration as they ran contrary to section 7 of the 1999 constitution as amended, which stipulates that there shall be elected local government chairmen across the country.He said: “It is a pity that Anambra State is still fixated to the days of backwardness, lawlessness and impunity. What is happening now across the country is that people are fixing dates for the election of council chairmen but here, the governor has brazenly appointed caretaker committee members at the council areas which is unlawful.“We, in the APC, are against what the gov…
