    Late night host Jimmy Kimmel appeared on CNN with Jake Tapper Wednesday night, where the two addressed the latest nonsense from Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving. Irving has come under fire of late for sharing an anti-Semitic video on Twitter. “My post was a post from Alex Jones that he did in the early nineties or late nineties about secret societies in America of a cult,” Irving said. “And it’s true.” The Nets owner publicly condemned Irving, but neither the team nor the league took action against Irving. Meanwhile, the Nets fired head coach Steve Nash for underperforming while not sharing anti-Jewish garbage. Tapper and Kimmel addressed the controversy and mocked Irving’s lone year attending Duke University. “Kyrie Irving, star of the Brooklyn Nets, he’s out there flirting with anti-Semitism, continues to play,” Tapper said. “How do you think celebrities who spew bigotry – people who have platforms – should be treated? What kind of consequences should there be?” “It makes me wonder,” Kimmel replied. “I mean, Kyrie Irving does think the world is flat. So, that should be taken...
    In this article MSFTFollow your favorite stocksCREATE FREE ACCOUNTMicrosoft co-founder Bill Gates on Tuesday addressed the issue of businesses that exaggerate environmental, social and governance credentials, arguing that though corporate sustainability credentials are often controversial, they are still critical for assessing whether to invest in a company. "The part that I believe in is where you accelerate the innovation. To me, it's not so much who you don't invest in but who you do invest in," Gates said during an interview with CNBC's Diana Olick. The comments come after the Securities and Exchange Commission earlier this year proposed new rules that would prevent misleading or deceptive claims by U.S. funds on their ESG qualifications and increase disclosure requirements for those funds. Gates, who is also the founder of Breakthrough Energy Ventures, a leading climate technology investment company, said there are a modest number of companies that will drive down the cost of choosing clean technology over alternatives that emit more planet-warming greenhouse gases. "I give people strong points where they're making those investments and becoming customers of those green technologies," Gates said. "The 'E' part --...
    ARSENAL face another brutal test at home - but victory would be a major step back towards the Champions League.

    In this article AFR-FF AF-FR VALE VALE-BR ULVR-GBFollow your favorite stocksCREATE FREE ACCOUNT As the 2020s progress, discussions about climate change, the environment and issues related to equality and diversity are at the forefront of many people's minds. The corporate world is no exception, with banks, energy producers and a host of other major businesses keen to trumpet their sustainability credentials through advertisements, pledges, social media campaigns and a range of other initiatives.     Many of these claims are now viewed through the prism of ESG, or environmental, social and governance. It's become a hot topic in recent years, with a wide range of organizations attempting to boost their sustainability credentials — and public image — by developing business practices which they claim chime with ESG-linked criteria. But here's the rub: Definitions of ESG often vary and are hard to pin down. That, in turn, can create a headache for businesses looking to toe the line with regulators and authorities.   More from CNBC Climate:Patagonia founder donates the entire company, worth $3 billion, to fight climate change UN warns world...
    A new form of security authorization will open the doors for people to move past the password. When Apple releases iOS 16 to the public in September, it will debut the highly anticipated Passkey, a new form of security authorization that will allow users to sign into an assortment of accounts without having to input their passwords over and over. If this new form of digital security catches enough attention, it could help users stop relying on questionable passwords and significantly improve the average user's digital privacy practices. Passwords are "simply not fit for today's internet," FIDO Alliance Executive Director Andrew Shikiar told the Washington Examiner. TONGA ERUPTION MAY BE PRODUCED STATUE OF LIBERTY-ENGULFING TSUNAMI: REPORT The Passkey was announced in May as part of a joint press release by Google, Apple, and Microsoft promoting a "passwordless future" based on new support for Fast IDentity Online, or FIDO, credentials.

    The lothario, mega s*****r and very heterosexual Harry Styles really, really wants to make you think he’s gay. I know that’s quite a bizarre concept given that closeted high profile A-list male celebrities have spent decades doing all they can to make you think they’re straight. But this is 2022 when gender and sexuality has become a tradable commodity for popstars looking to enhance their woke credentials. Now I’ve always been a fan of Mr Styles – he’s a real talent whose career I have supported since first meeting him as an enthusiastic teen with stars in his eyes in the canteen backstage at the X Factor, where he effortlessly flirted with virtually every glamorous woman in the vicinity, especially those twice his age. His seemingly effortless transition from One Direction member into a Bowie-style musician has been a sight to behold and belies his determination, creativity and dedication to become the biggest popstar in the world. However, I’m becoming increasingly uncomfortable with his constant and insincere attempts to insert himself in the so-called LGBT+ community with incessant references to...

It was however some way below the Combine record, an incredible 46 inches set by North Carolina safety Gerald Sensabaugh in 2005. Paige mustered one rep on the daunting bench press, but more than redeemed herself with a speedy 2.97secs on the 20-yard dash.

And the United boss certainly made the most of the opportunity, asking his hero: "What is the best way to develop your technique?" Cruyff responds: "Developing your technique is really quite simple. You have to do it: train, train, train. That is the only thing that you have to do above anything else." It appears Ten Hag still abides by that principle today as he was responsible for several Ajax youth players becoming integral to the first-team, including...
    WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Poland and Israel have taken a step toward normalizing diplomatic ties, the Polish president said Tuesday, as the Israeli ambassador officially presented his credentials in Warsaw. President Andrzej Duda tweeted that he and Israeli President Issac Herzog have “agreed that it’s time to return to normal relations.” He said the “first step” was taken when Israeli Ambassador Yacov Livne officially presented his credentials on Tuesday. Israel expects Poland to appoint an ambassador too, and Duda said he hopes it would happen “soon.” Relations between the two nations that share difficult history soured in recent years amid spats over Poland’s laws that were seen as whitewashing the deeds of some Poles during the Holocaust and banning claims for restitution of seized property by Holocaust victims and their relatives. Israel recalled its ambassador in the fall of 2020 and Poland’s ambassador to Israel was instructed to end his mission prematurely in the summer of 2021. Ties have since improved in the wake of Israel-Polish cooperation on the Ukrainian refugee crisis following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine...
    Multi-billion-pound multinationals were out in force at a huge Pride parade in London on Saturday, with Coca-Cola sending drag queens and others in company branding to drum up support. In what some might see as a cynical move by a corporation with a somewhat chequered reputation among some to align itself with a supposedly anti-establishment, socially fashionable minority, Coca-Cola deployed drag queens, among others, to the streets of London, to curry favour with the LGBTQIA2S+ community. “All together now with Coca-Cola!” said one of the drag queens, leading spectators in cheers for the event. “Awww you guys are incredible London,” they went on, thanking the crowds — somewhat unsubtly — for “coming out with Coca-Cola”. Kurt Zindulka (Breitbart News Network) The soft drinks corporation was not the only multinational to get in on the act, however, with the likes of Microsoft, Comcast, and BlackRock, the gigantic global investment corporation represented at the parade. BlackRock is a massive investor in Communist China, where homosexuality was still classified as a mental disorder as recently as 2001, and where the lives of LGBTQIA2S+ persons are...
    SACRAMENTO —  At least 10% of California’s public school classrooms are overseen by teachers who are not properly credentialed, according to a first-of-its-kind report released by the Department of Education on Thursday. The new data shed light on the number of classrooms with instructors who are fully trained in the subject they are assigned to teach. It also shows how many classrooms are led by teachers who are working while awaiting full credentialing. The data come as California schools have been grappling with widespread staffing shortages, a problem compounded by the pandemic. A vast majority — 83% percent — of classes are led by teachers fully authorized to cover the subjects they teach. Data are unknown for nearly 7% of classrooms. But the report did delve into classrooms without properly trained instructors: The 10% of classrooms without credentialed teachers represents 27,500 courses. 4.1% of the state’s teaching assignments are considered “ineffective,” meaning educators are using emergency permits or are otherwise teaching without proper authorization. 4.4% of classrooms are led by teachers who have a credential but...

    DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — A new ambassador from Bahrain formally took up his post in Syria on Sunday, the country’s first full diplomatic mission there in more than a decade as Damascus continues to improve its relations with Gulf Arab states. President Bashar Assad received the credentials of Ambassador Waheed Mubarak Sayyar in an official ceremony also attended by Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad. Sayyar was appointed in December and recently moved to Damascus. Assad has been gradually reintegrating into mainstream regional acceptance. His visit to the United Arab Emirates in March was the first such trip to an Arab country since Syria’s civil war erupted in 2011. Syria was expelled from the 22-member Arab League and boycotted by its neighbors after the conflict broke out. Hundreds of thousands of people have been killed in the war, which displaced half of Syria’s population. Large parts of Syria have been destroyed, and reconstruction will cost tens of billions of dollars. Early in the conflict, Arab states like Saudi Arabia and Qatar rushed to back Sunni fighters battling Assad’s forces. Arab...
    Oakland A’s right-hander Paul Blackburn might not have been quite as efficient Thursday as he was in his previous start, which was arguably the best of his Major League career. But Blackburn and the A’s liked the end result a whole lot more, as they ended an otherwise dismal road trip on a positive note. Christian Bethancourt’s two-RBI single came as part of a three-run third inning, as the A’s ended a three-game losing skid with a 4-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. Chad Pinder also had an RBI single in the third and the A’s tacked on an unearned run in the sixth to help close the nine-game trip through Atlanta, Cleveland, and Boston with a 2-7 record. On June 10 against the Guardians, Blackburn had the longest outing of his big league career, allowing four hits and striking out three in eight shutout innings. The stellar start lowered Blackburn’s road ERA to 0.93, a mark that led the American League before Thursday’s games. But the A’s bullpen blew the game in the bottom of...
    EXPERTS have worked out that more than 24billion usernames and password are exposed on the internet - the equivalent of nearly four for every person on the planet. A shocking number of them use extremely easy to guess passwords, despite repeated warnings. 2Change your password if it's too easy to guessCredit: PA The sensitive details are a collection relating to various breaches that have happened over the years. Many are in circulation on the dark web where cyber criminals lurk. The word 'password' itself ranks in the top 50 passwords dumped on the web, alongside the classic 'qwerty'. Nearly one in every 200 were found to be '123456'. Experts from security firm Digital Shadows say 49 of the 50 most commonly used passwords can be 'cracked' in under one second via easy-to-use tools commonly available on criminal forums. Simply adding a special character like # or * adds about 90 minutes onto the the time it takes for a crook to solve the password. The worrying 24billion figure is a massive 65 percent increase on 2020. Once a hacker breaches a...
    Still strangely salty after more than two decades, Bruce Smith decided to go after Tony Boselli’s Pro Football Hall of Fame credentials. Bruce Smith needs a nap. That’s the only explanation for his cranky and childish Instagram rant against Tony Boselli’s Pro Football Hall of Fame induction. Literally out of nowhere, months after Boselli was voted in and weeks before he’ll be officially enshrined, Smith decided to disparage his credentials in a show of extreme saltiness.Bruce Smith disrespected Tony Boselli and the NFL Hall of Famehttps://www.instagram.com/p/CexK-QouZlB/ Smith opened his head-scratching statement against Boselli with a bizarre set of claims. “A large part of the campaign to promote Tony Boselli into the Hall of Fame seems to hyper-focus on a single successful performance he had against me in a 1996 playoff game,” Smith wrote. First and foremost, that’s just inaccurate. Sure, Boselli’s performance against Smith has been brought up, but far more often the focus has been on what a dominant player he was for the bulk of his career. He was a three-time All-Pro first-teamer and five-time Pro Bowler for...

Even after she pushed her way into the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, she yelled in the Rotunda, “I am a Stanford-educated attorney!” before giving speeches to passing rioters complaining about vaccine mandates and urging the use of the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine for Covid treatment.

    A CYBERSECURITY firm has flagged a rampant Facebook Messenger scam that infects whole networks. The scheme has been active since September 2021 and relies on a fake login portal. 1This scam has the potential to generate millions for the hackers "We uncovered a campaign whose scale has potentially impacted hundreds of millions of Facebook users," PIXM, the cybersecurity firm that flagged the scam, wrote in a blog. The scam relies on a fake Facebook log-in portal where unsuspecting users enter their username and password. After users are misled into turning over their data, they are redirected to a page littered with ads and surveys. Based on correspondence between a hacker and PIXM, organizers of the scam make about $150 for every thousand page views and they've tricked their way into almost 400,000,000 page views - at this pace, the scam would have created about $60million in revenue.

    BERLIN (AP) — Authorities in Germany raided the offices of Deutsche Bank and its subsidiary DWS on Tuesday following claims that it was exaggerating the sustainable credentials of some of the products it sold. German news agency dpa quoted Frankfurt prosecutors saying the probe focused on allegations of investment fraud, but no specific suspects had been identified yet. A former manager in charge of sustainability at DWS has claimed that the asset management firm exaggerated the environmental and climate credentials of certain funds — referred to as “greenwashing.” DWS said in a statement that it is cooperating with “all relevant regulatory authorities” on the issue, dpa reported.

    Tuesday ahead of the second round of U.S. Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, criticized his GOP colleagues for their “baseless” and “outlandish” attacks on the nominee. During MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Coons praised Jackson for maintaining her composure and suggested she would “make quick work of dismissing” the “unfounded” accusations against her record. “Yesterday, Judge Jackson maintained her composure as a whole range of senators made opening statements,” Coons outlined. “Some of them, like mine, were laying out what I believe to be her remarkable, impeccable credentials, her record, her character and her values. Others made a wide range of attacks that were, I think, baseless, two-dimensional caricatures of Judge Jackson.” “Today, she will get to respond,” he added. “Senators will be questioning her in 30-minute rounds, and she will be able to answer. And I think she will make quick work of dismissing some of the more outlandish and unfounded suggestions or accusations made by a few of my colleagues. Overall, the tone and tenor...
    South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem has enacted a law that bans government entities in her state from accepting private financial resources to help absorb the cost of running elections. In signing Senate Bill 122, the Republican chief executive was responding to the GOP backlash against the hundreds of millions of dollars donated to state governments and local municipalities across the country in 2020 by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan. The money was used to help mitigate the higher cost of funding elections in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic. TRUMP RESISTING GOP PLEASE TO DROP 2020 COMPLAINTS AND FOCUS ON THE FUTURE Indeed, more majority-Republican communities than majority-Democratic communities accepted the funds. But many grassroots Republicans believe it was used primarily to boost President Joe Biden over former President Donald Trump in the last White House contest, and some GOP lawmakers have responded with legislation to prohibit the derisively termed “Zuck Bucks” from being used in 2024. “In 2020, we saw Mark Zuckerberg pour ‘Zuck Bucks’ into local election operations across the country.

    A 44-year-old man has been convicted of impersonating an FBI agent and wire fraud after scamming immigrants in a California town, authorities said. Ivan Isho, an Arizona resident, pretended to be an FBI agent between 2016 and 2017 and claimed that he could help Assyrians living in Ceres, in Northern California, get visas for their family members living outside the country, the U.S. attorney’s office for the Eastern District of California said in a release. Isho showed his victims fake FBI credentials and a gun to shore up his story, federal prosecutors said. During a four-day trial last week, Isho claimed that he had the fake FBI credentials as part of a Halloween costume. The Assyrians who were scammed paid Isho thousands of dollars through wire transfers and offered him copies of personal documents, according to court records. Isho was never employed by the FBI, prosecutors said, and he did not have any ability to help obtain visas nor did he ever try to do so. He also left threatening and harassing voicemails for one female victim and her...
    Republican Senator Susan Collins sounded positive about President Joe Biden's Supreme Court nominee after meeting with Ketanji Brown Jackson for nearly two hours on Tuesday. 'It's clear that her credentials and the breadth of her experience are impressive,' Collins said. The GOP senator from Maine, who voted to confirm Jackson less than a year ago to the D.C. Circuit Court, said she would wait until after the upcoming Supreme Court confirmation hearings to make a final decision. 'One never knows what’s going to come out in hearings, so I will withhold my judgement until after the hearings are completed,' she said. She even expressed confidence in the Democrats' timeline for the confirmation process even after some Republicans complained it was being rushed. She pointed out Jackson has been confirmed by the Senate before. 'I think it's important to recognize that she has been confirmed three times now, so this is not a candidate who is a blank slate to us,' Collins said. Jackson also met with Republican Senators Ted Cruz and Rick Scott on Tuesday as part of her pre-confirmation hearing sit...
    SACRAMENTO — A federal jury has convicted an Arizona man of impersonating an FBI agent to defraud immigrants in California, officials said Monday. Ivan Isho, 44, of Peoria, Arizona, faces up to five years in prison after he was convicted Friday of stalking, wire fraud and false impersonation of a federal officer following a four-day trial. He pretended to be an FBI agent as he told members of the Assyrian community in Ceres, near Modesto, in 2016 and 2017 that he could help them get immigration visas for their family members living outside the United States, according to trial evidence. Isho showed them counterfeit FBI credentials and a gun to back up his story. They gave him thousands of dollars along with family documents, federal prosecutors said. But Isho never was employed by the FBI, and never had any ability to help anyone get visas. He also harassed a woman by pretending to be an FBI special agent in phone calls and voicemail messages to the victim and her husband in 2017 and 2018. Isho testified that he had the...

    GOOGLE is plotting a major revamp of one of Chrome's most popular security features. An experimental version of the browser released to developers suggests that its password manager will soon allow you to add passwords manually for the first time. 2Google is revamping Chrome's password managerCredit: Getty The feature is common in other management tools such as 1Password and Apple's Keychain. Previously, Chrome wouldn't let you log credentials yourself, meaning you had to wait until it offered to store them for you. This didn't always work perfectly, with the software sometimes not recognising you were entering new credentials into an app or website. Now, it appears that Google is working on a way to add stuff to the manager manually. According to Android Police, the upgrade was spotted by a Reddit user in Chrome 101, which is still in development. The early version of the browser includes a buried option that lets you manually add passwords.

McCabe for Friday’s Ohio Republican Party State Central Committee meeting at Lewis Center’s Nationwide Conference Center. National Political Editor Neil W. McCabe (pictured left) interviews an Ohio Republican Party member.“I sent your request to Chairman Paduchik, and he asked me to send you this response on the record: ‘Your request for credentials to attend the meeting as a journalist have been denied because The Ohio Star is fake news and you’re not a journalist,’” said Daniel J.

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The state of Minnesota has agreed to pay $825,000 and change several policies to settle a lawsuit brought by journalists who said they were hurt or harassed while covering protests over the police killings of George Floyd and Daunte Wright. The American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota and the state’s Department of Public Safety announced the settlement Tuesday. It prohibits the Minnesota State Patrol from attacking journalists, arresting or threatening to arrest them, ordering them to disperse, seizing their equipment and more.

    A Portland woman was duped into believing she was a DEA agent-in-training for an entire year, walking around with a badge she thought was real, going on fake ride-alongs, and developing “confidential informants” at her phony supervisor’s behest. That’s according to a federal complaint first obtained by The Daily Beast, which accuses 41-year-old Robert Edward Golden of impersonating a Drug Enforcement Administration special agent while convincing his “trainee” she was actually on the job. On the evening of Feb. 1, Portland cops detained Golden and the unnamed woman on a street corner not far from the Portland Art Museum, the complaint states. Officers called the DEA’s Portland District Office and told agents that they had two people claiming to be with the DEA. When the agents arrived on-scene, they found Golden and the woman in handcuffs. A sergeant told the real DEA agents that he had spotted Golden and the woman by the open trunk of a silver Dodge Charger, and that he saw a tactical vest inside with a patch on it that said “DEA POLICE” in white lettering....

    Confronted with a shortage of school mental health counselors, the state Department of Education is seeking to bring 10,000 more professionals to campuses at a time when federal public health officials are calling for action to address the nation’s growing youth mental health crisis. The counselor effort, which requires legislative approval, would aim to entice clinicians into schools through loan forgiveness and deferrals, scholarships to offset education costs and potentially reduce the time it takes for mental health clinicians to get licensed, Supt. of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond said Wednesday during a visit to Washington Preparatory High School in South Los Angeles. Thurmond said he is in talks with legislators and hopes a measure, projected to cost $250 million, can be introduced in coming weeks. “I can’t think of anything more important right now in terms of dealing with the trauma that students and families have experienced,” Thurmond said. “But the reality is that there is a shortage, there just aren’t enough counselors at many schools and many communities, urban, suburban, rural.” For years, educators have warned of a shortage...
    Progressives on Twitter slammed New York City Mayor Eric Adams, who is just into his first week in office, for remarks about low-skill workers. “I don’t know if my businesses are sharing with their employees, ‘You are part of the ecosystem of this city,’” said Adams at a Tuesday press conference. “My low-skill workers, my cooks, my dishwashers, my messengers, my shoe shine people, those that work in Dunkin’ Donuts, they don’t have the academic skills to sit in the corner office. They need this.” Adams has repeatedly called for people to return to work in-person, especially in that it would helping the working class. “We have to open up. What we must understand is the resiliency of returning back to a normal life. If we don’t open our cities, there are almost a million people that are behind in their rents right here in this city,” said Adams on CNN Tuesday. “We have low-skilled employees who can’t do remote employment from home or telecommuting. That’s not a reality in a city like New York and America. I need my cities to open.”...

    ROY KEANE hit out at Micah Richards laughing off his credentials to be Manchester United manager. And the former Red Devils skipper revealed how he would build bridges with the players he has criticised. 2Roy Keane responded to Micah Richards laughing him out of the Manchester United jobCredit: SkyBet Robbie Keane threw his compatriot and namesake into the mix when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked last month.

    At least 5.5 Billion email addresses and passwords are currently compromised around the world, according to Have I Been Pwned (HIBP). Some 585 million of those passwords were recently supplied by the UK National Crime Agency (NCA) after an investigation uncovered a major security breach. 2HIBP's service has collected 5.5 Billion compromised passwords HIBP creator Troy Hunt, who is also a Microsoft Regional Director, wrote in a new blog post today that 225 million of the breached passwords provided by the NCA were "completely new." The NCA said in a statement shared with Hunt that they found the compromised passwords, along with their associated email accounts, in a UK cloud storage facility. "Through analysis, it became clear that these credentials were an accumulation of breached datasets known and unknown," the NCA stated. "The fact that they had been placed on a UK business’s cloud storage facility by unknown criminal actors meant the credentials now existed in the public domain and could be accessed by other 3rd parties to commit further fraud or cyber offenses," they added.

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The U.N. General Assembly approved a resolution Monday delaying action on requests by Myanmar’s military junta and Afghanistan’s Taliban rulers to take their countries’ seats at the United Nations. Assembly President Abdulla Shahid banged his gavel to approve the measure by consensus, without a vote. The decision by the 193-member world body means that the ambassadors from the ousted governments in Myanmar and Afghanistan will remain in their jobs. The resolution was introduced by Sweden’s U.N. Ambassador Anna Eneström, chair of the General Assembly’s Credentials Committee, which recommended last week that the United Nations defer a decision on the credentials of the two countries. She said the nine-member committee has not scheduled another meeting and would not say how long the issue of credentials for Myanmar and Afghanistan would be deferred. Myanmar’s military rulers sought to replace the country’s ambassador to the United Nations, Kyaw Moe Tun, who opposed their Feb. 1 ouster of civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi and takeover of the government. Foreign Minister Wunna Maung Lwin said in July that he had...
    MADRID (AP) — Spain’s foreign minister said Monday that the Cuban government’s decision to revoke the press credentials of journalists working for the Spanish state news agency in Havana is “unacceptable” and demanded that all the credentials be returned. The Cuban government has given no explanation for its decision to revoke six EFE press credentials last Saturday, two days ahead of planned protest marches in Havana that have generated tension. “We do not think it is acceptable to revoke credentials for no reason. Freedom of the press is vital in any country in the world,” Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs José Manuel Albares said. Albares on Sunday summoned the chargé d’affaires at the Cuban embassy in Madrid — Cuba’s top diplomat in Spain because it currently has no ambassador there – to the foreign ministry for a meeting about the issue. But the Cuban official said he couldn’t attend the Monday talks due to COVID-19, providing no further explanation. Albares said that Juan Fernández Trigo, Spain’s Secretary of State for Ibero-America and the Caribbean, discussed the matter on the...
    LISBON, Portugal (AP) — Spain’s foreign minister summoned Cuba’s top diplomat in Madrid on Sunday to explain why Havana has revoked the press credentials of five journalists on the island working for Spanish state news agency Efe. The Spanish embassy in Havana is also working with Cuban authorities in an effort to ensure the return of the Efe team’s credentials, which they need in order to work in Cuba, Spanish diplomatic sources told The Associated Press. Efe said Cuban officials offered no explanation about why — or until when — they were revoking the credentials of three reporters, a photographer and a cameraman. The step late Saturday came two days before a planned opposition protest march scheduled for Monday in Cuba. The Cuban government has outlawed the demonstration but organizers have urged people to take to the streets anyway. Spanish Foreign Minister José Manuel Albares summoned Cuba’s charge d’affaires for a meeting, a Spanish diplomatic source said. Cuba currently has no ambassador in Madrid.
