Egypt annoyed as Britain continues suspension of flights
Egypt expressed frustration on Saturday at Britain's refusal to lift a suspension of flights from the United Kingdom to the Red Sea resort of Sharm al-Sheikh, imposed after Islamic State brought down a Russian airliner in 2015. The issue of airline security came up in talks involving visiting British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson, Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Foreign Minister Sameh Hassan Shoukry. Johnson praised Egypt as a longstanding friend of Britain and said they were strong allies against terrorism and extremist ideas, according to a British statement.

Buffett mulls change to canny Bank of America stake if dividend rises
Warren Buffett said on Saturday he plans to stick with the shrewd bet that his Berkshire Hathaway Inc made on Bank of America Corp , but might eventually swap the preferred stock that Berkshire owns into common stock. Berkshire bought $5 billion of Bank of America preferred stock carrying a 6 percent dividend, or $300 million annually, in August 2011, when many investors worried about the second-largest U.S. bank's capital needs. More importantly, Buffett also received warrants to buy 700 million Bank of America common shares at $7.14 each, roughly where the stock traded, by September 2021.

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) ? A Kansas man accused of shooting two Indian immigrants and a third man at a bar, in what some believe was a hate crime, was always a drinker but became a "drunken mess" after his father died about 18 months ago, a longtime neighbor said Saturday.
Here?s the three new Nokia Android phones you?ve been waiting for
About five years too late, Nokia has finally entered the Android market. It's probably not quite what you were expecting: the phones really come from Nokia's new Finnish owner, HMD Global. But hey, they're Nokia phones running Android, and they look half-decent, so who are we to complain? Things get better when you hear about the design decisions HMD has been making. Just a few small companies (and Motorola) have done in the past, HMD is shipping all three phones with pure Android, no gimmicks, no bundled apps, and no bungled re-skinning. The three devices are called the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6. The specs and price increase along with the number, but all three handsets look distinctly mid-range. It starts with the Nokia 3, the most basic of the new devices. It's featuring a 5-inch display up front, generic quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM underneath, and 16GB of storage, expandable with a microSD. The design looks a lot like the Nokia we've recently become familiar with: curved edges, a polycarbonate frame, and most of the flair coming from color. It's not a bad design, normally, but in a world of aluminum unibody, it's sorely in danger of feeling cheap. That's exactly what the Nokia 3 is, though, as it should be available in the spring for around $150. Just like the new 3310, there's a range of colors for you to choose from. The Nokia 5 looks like a small step up in price, but hits a much more attractive place with the specs. Ther's a 5.2-inch display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a Wualcomm Snapdragon 430 underneath. That's a decent amount of power for a mid-range Android device, and especially given that it's running a naked version of Android with no bloat, should be enough for most day-to-day use. The polycarbonate body is also upgraded to aluminum, which helps with a more premium feel. It still looks to have a lot of bezel compared to this year's crop of smartphones, but at the price of the 5, you can lett that go. It should be shipping in Q2 for $200, which is a steal for a serious low-end handset these days. There's also one other piece of classic Nokia to be found in the 5's hardware: a 13-megapixel camera at the back and 6-megapixel front-facing camera. Provided that these are good lenses and not just gratuitously thrown on there to save the spec sheet, that could mean that Nokia's legendary mobile cameras are back for good. Finally, we've got the Nokia 6. It many ways, it's similar to the 5: aluminum body, Snapdragon 430 processor, but the screen has been upgraded to 5.5-inches and the RAM to 3GB. The camera also gets a small bump to 16 megapixels. There's also a limited edition available with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, if that really catches your eye. It's still not priced anywhere close to flagship smartphone pricing, with the regular version running about $250. None of these phones are going to change the world or compete with a new iPhone, but it looks to be a solid first step back into the phone-making business for Nokia. We'll have to wait and see how sales actually go -- for low-end phones like these, it will probably depend if they can get into any carrier retail stores -- but the future looks a little brighter for Nokia after today.
Demonstrators in New York defend media amid attacks by Trump
Although New York, a Democratic bastion, has been the scene of numerous demonstrations since Trump's election, this was the first protest organized expressly to show support for the media. The White House on Friday barred journalists from seven news organizations, including the New York Times and CNN, from attending an off-camera briefing in press secretary Sean Spicer's office.
