His arrest may have an impact on upcoming Indian election

due to take place in May.

The discovery of the alleged fraud and Modi’s refusal to return to India to face criminal charges has in

creased pressure on Prime Minister Narendra Modi — no relation to Nirav Modi — who promised to fight corruption in India.

Tuesday’s arrest and the possibility of extradition could help to improve the Prime Minister’s tarnished image.

Rahul Gandhi, leader of the principle opposition party Congress, has repeatedly attacked PM Modi on his failure to bring fugitives back to India.

In 2016, liquor baron Vijay Mallya left the country owning an estimated $1.6 billion to 17 Indian banks.

The process for Mallya’s extradition to India is ongoing. He has denied fleeing the country ov

er his debts and described charges of fraud and money laundering as “false, fabricated and baseless.”

approaching a European Council summit where thebehavior of

the EU can’t easily be predicted.

The difficulty for the EU is that, long or short, any delay comes with complications. And this is where opinions in European capitals start to diverge.

If the UK hasn’t left the EU by May 22, it might have to take part in elections to the European Parli

amentary elections, which begin the following day. Not doing so could be a breach of the UK’s obligations as a

member state.And if that happens, there is a real concern in Brussels that hardline Euroskeptics could stand for elect

ion, in protest at Britain not yet having yet Brexited. They might find a receptive public, and in turn, join interesting new fr

iends in the European Parliament. Sound far fetched? An EU source recently told CNN of worries in Brussels that far-right figures like To

mmy Robinson could end up as Members of the European Parliament, with all the associated attention that brings.

So a short delay is the preferred option of many in Brussels, especially in the Parliament. But that brings its own set of issues. Fi

rst, there is no guarantee that by the end of it, the UK Parliament would have given a thumbs up to May’s deal. In reality, it cou

ld just mean a delay to a no-deal Brexit that almost everyone claims they want to avoid, but still remains the default legal position.

Since the massacre, Ardern, at 37 the world’s younge

  st female head of government, has spoken with emotion and empathy, reassuring families and updating the public with the latest on the investigation.

  It has been her face — and not that of the suspected shooter — that has come to dominate media coverage.

  As the suspect– thanks in part to a ban on publishing certain details about him — has be

en forced into the background, facing punishment but denied the fame he desired, Ard

ern has earned international praise for her handling of the event, which has thrust her into

the unwelcome role of, as she put it, voicing the grief of a nation.While Ardern has provided

a point of stability for all New Zealanders as the country continues to reel from a terror attack

that weeks ago would have seemed implausible, her actions have personally touched the relatives of t

hose who died in the massacre, which tore apart a close Muslim community in this small city of around 400,000 people.

This progressive reputation — Ardern has also supporte

  and called for cannabis decriminalization — made i

t all the more shocking when the country was the subject of a far-right terrorist attack.

  ”I’ve said many times that we are a nation of 200 ethnicities, 160 languages,” Ardern s

aid Tuesday. “We open our doors to others and say welcome. The only thing that must change after the e

vents of Friday is that this same door must close on all of those who espouse hate and fear.”

  CNN’s James Griffiths contributed reporting from Hong

Kong.The bodies of at least six victims of the Christchurch attack were returned to families Tuesday and

another 32 people remain in hospital after a 28-year-old Australian gunman opened fire at two mosques last week.

  New Zealand Police told CNN in a statement that they were wo

rking with families to return their loved ones’ bodies after a coroner had identified 12 victims.

Information consumption vital to China’s economythe US inte

Information consumption has become a new engine for China’s economy, playing a vital role in d

riving domestic demand, creating jobs and pushing forward industrial upgrades, People’s Daily reported.

Last year, China’s information consumption rose 11 percent year-on-year to

5 trillion yuan ($745.39 billion), accounting for 6 percent of the GDP, according to the Internet Society of China.

To further boost information consumption, the Ministry of Industry and Inform

ation Technology and the National Development and Reform Commission unveiled an action plan in August.

According to the plan, by 2020, China’s spending on information consum

ption is expected to be 6 trillion yuan, with average annual growth of more than 11 perce

nt. Information technology is estimated to drive 15 trillion yuan in related consumption.

Meanwhile, 5G is becoming a new bright spot. In Decem

the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology allocated specific l

ow- and medium-frequency bands to the nation’s three telecom carriers. Currently, these carrie

rs are conducting 5G trial operations in a string of cities, enabling large-scale precommercial use.

According to the action plan, the country will speed up 5G research, and promote the construct

ion of 5G network and demonstration projects, aiming to fully commercialize the superfast technology by 2020.

E-commerce poverty alleviation

In the wake of information consumption’s development in China, e-commerce brings about a new idea for poverty alleviation in rural areas.

In recent years, some people sell local agricultural products nationwide via e-commerce platf

orms. It not only improves the livelihoods of impoverished people, but also contributes to the revitalization of rural areas.

Police also evacuated properties close to a “location of interest”

  ern city of Dunedin, some 225 miles from Christchurch late Friday night local time.

  Evacuations were made as a precaution, according to police, and alternative accommodation has been provided for residents.

  ”There is no further information available at this time,” police said on Twitter.

  In a press conference, Prime Minister Ardern described the attack as “one of New Zealand’s darkest days.”

  ”What has happened here is an extraordinary and unprecedented act of violence,” she said, adding that the attackers have “no place in New Zealand.”

  ”For now my thoughts and I’m sure the thoughts of all New Zealanders are with those who are being affected and with the families,” she said.

  Police said they have mobilized every national police resource to respond to the incident.

  Gunman opened fire ‘for 10 to 15 minutes’

  Armed police were deployed after first receiving reports of the shootings at 1:40 p.m. Fri

One witness, who did not want to be named, said he was

  driving by the scene and saw a man with a “with his 3- or 4-year-old

daughter” who had been shot in the back.

  ”He was screaming like get her to the hospital and the ambulance couldn’t come in until it was secured so I just got my truck a

nd loaded up him, and his daughter, and this other guy had been shot in the leg,

and took them to the hospital,” he said.

  One man outside the mosque said that he prayed that the gunman would “run out of bullets.”

  ”I was thinking that he must run out bullets you know, so what I did was

basically waiting and praying to God, oh God please

let this guy run out of bullets,” he said. He said a man told him to remain still

and then the gunman shot the man “straight in the chest.”Christchurch was put

on lockdown, with all schools and council buildings shut and roads closed across the city.

  By 6 p.m. local time New Zealand police said the lockdown on schools had been lifted.

  Police can now confirm the lock down of schools throughout Christchurch has been lifted. We would like

Sports participation, as part of all-around education, sho

uld be given a more prominent role on campus, whereas now acade

mic excellence seems to be the main priority in our country,” Yao told China Daily on Sun

day in Beijing during the annual session of the country’s top political advisory body.

“Building organized and accessible sports competitions with tailor-made programs and adequate facilities is the key to involv

ing as many students as possible,” said Yao, who is chairman of the Chinese Basketball Association.

At last year’s two sessions, he proposed implementation of a “m

ini basketball” program for younger students. It saw 10,000 participants registered with the CBA

sign up for some 15,000 teams that competed regularly in 192 cities across the country over the past year.
