The handshake explained

Trump Kim summit: Handshake moment explained in pictures US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un have finally shaken hands. But nobody knew exactly how it would play out. Here we break down the images from an extraordinary morning to explain how each moment unfolded.

Australian city pulls tourism ad over 'whitewash' controversy Image copyright ROCKHAMPTION REGIONAL COUNCIL Image caption Aboriginal Australians criticised the advert for its lack of diversity An Australian city has removed a tourism advert from the internet after it was accused of a "whitewash" of indigenous people and ethnic minorities. The advert for Rockhampton, Queensland, was published on Monday and showed scenes of people and local attractions. But indigenous Australians criticised it for depicting only white people, with one calling it "paternalistic". The city council removed the video and apologised following a backlash online.
