UK set to back new Heathrow runway in long-awaited airport decision
By Kylie MacLellan and Sarah Young LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May is set to end decades of indecision by backing the expansion of Britain and Europe's busiest airport, Heathrow, finally kickstarting a project made more pressing by the vote to leave the EU. May and a small team of ministers will meet on Tuesday to choose between expanding Heathrow, to the west of London, or Gatwick, to the south - making a decision on airport expansion after more than 25 years of debate. Key opponents of Heathrow expansion such as Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who as then London mayor said last year it would not solve capacity issues and the scheme was doomed to fail, will not be present.
May rejects talk of 'hard Brexit', says UK's options not binaryBritish Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday it was not accurate to suggest that Britain was headed for a "hard Brexit" because it does not face a binary choice between curbing immigration and getting a good trade deal with the EU. When an opposition Labour lawmaker suggested to May she had been "talking up" a so-called hard Brexit, in which Britain leaves the EU's lucrative single market in order to impose controls on immigration, she said: "There is no suggestion of that whatsoever." "We are going to be ambitious for what we obtain for the United Kingdom and that means a good trade deal as well as control of immigration," she told parliament.
Migrants stream out of Calais 'Jungle' before demolition
Migrants lugging their meagre belongings boarded buses Monday taking them from the Calais "Jungle" under a French plan to raze the notorious camp that has become a symbol of Europe's refugee crisis. "Bye Bye, Jungle!" a group of migrants shouted as they hauled luggage through the muddy lanes of the shantytown where thousands from Africa and the Middle East had holed up, desperate to sneak into Britain. Around 1,200 police officers -- some in riot gear -- were on hand as scores of Sudanese and Eritrean men queued from dawn outside a hangar to be among the first to be put on coaches for shelters across France.
UK's May says some EU leaders commended her Brexit speechBritish Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday several European Union leaders had commended her on a speech to her ruling Conservative Party earlier this month that was widely seen as signaling a "hard Brexit" lay ahead. "What I found when I was in the European Council last week was a number of European leaders actually commending the speech that I had given at the Conservative Party conference," May told parliament.
Moscow nanny admits beheading disabled child
A Moscow nanny on Monday pleaded guilty to murdering the four-year-old disabled child in her charge after brandishing the child's severed head on the street.

The prosecutor at Moscow's Khoroshevsky district court read out the charges that 39-year-old Bobokulova had strangled Anastasia, who had cerebral palsy, and then beheaded her.
