The designer had been unwell for several weeks, and had missed a number of fashion shows.

The 2017 Nobel Prize in chemistry has been awarded to three scientists for improving images made of biological molecules.

Jacques Dubochet, Joachim Frank and Richard Henderson will share the nine million kronor (£831,000) prize.

Paris Supermaket Attack Hero Lassana Bathily to Get French Citizenship

PARIS — A Muslim immigrant was set to be granted fast-track French citizenship on Tuesday after he hid several Jewish shoppers in a kosher supermarket during a deadly terrorist siege.

Four hostages were killed before police shot Coulibaly dead.

Danger zone: Chasing West Africa’s pirates

Take a boat ride out from the Nigerian port of Lagos and it is easy to see why piracy, sea robbery and other forms of maritime crime are such a problem.

The ocean is swarming with cargo ships, oil tankers, barges and other vessels waiting for permission to enter the overcrowded port.

Great hulks of rusting metal, anchored and sitting low in the water, almost as if they are inviting pirates to sling their ladders over the side and clamber up on board.

"It was 14 August 2014," says Nigerian navigation officer Rotimi George.
