Migrant children: Global outcry rises over US border separations Media playback is unsupported on your device Media captionTheresa May: US child detention "disturbing" and "wrong" International condemnation is growing against the US policy of separating migrant families at its border. UK Prime Minister Theresa May said holding children "in what appear to be cages [is] deeply disturbing" and "wrong". Pope Francis said he supported US Catholic bishops who said it was "immoral". The Republican-controlled Congress is under pressure to change President Donald Trump's policy. Republicans are scrambling to draft a new immigration bill to address the growing outcry.

How hats were placed atop the Easter Island statues

How hats were placed atop the Easter Island statues Media playback is unsupported on your device Media captionTerry Hunt: "Some of the most accomplished achievements of the ancient world" The famous statues of Rapa Nui, or Easter Island, are best known for their deep-set eyes and long ears. They also sport impressive multi-tonne hats made from a different rock type. Quite how these pukao, as they are known, were transported and placed atop the statues has long been a puzzle. But now American archaeologists believe they have a clearer understanding. The giant hats were moved with minimal effort and resources using a ramp and rope technique, they say. "The fact that they successfully assembled these monuments is a clear signal of the engineering prowess of the prehistoric Rapanui people," said Sean Hixon, lead author and graduate student in anthropology, at Penn State.

More deaths in Nicaragua violence as talks collapse Image copyright Reuters Image caption Opposition activists fought government militias in the streets of Masaya At least three people were killed and many injured as government forces in Nicaragua launched an operation to regain control of the city of Masaya.

The family held a wake in the village only for Mr Penayo to turn up and find them grieving over the coffin they thought held his body. The punk who returned from the dead - and handed himself inFollowing Mr Penayo's unscathed return, the still unidentified body was returned to the morgue. Officials said that if no-one else claimed it, the body would be interred as "NN", the ini..
