A journalist in Bangladesh could face the death penalty for breaching strict government secrecy laws while reporting on the country's coronavirus outbreak.

Rozina Islam, who works for media outlet Prothom Alo, was arrested this week for allegedly stealing official government documents related to COVID-19.

Police reports claim Ms Islam took photos of documents related to the procurement of vaccines at the government's Health Ministry in Dhaka.

Bangladeshi journalists have since rallied for Ms Islam, forming a human chain outside the Health Ministry after Ms Islam was charged.

Her colleagues claim she was physically harassed after being detained for her crime, which carries a maximum penalty of death.

Health Minister Zahid Maleque said he couldn't account for mistreatment of the 42-year-old but insisted she "did the wrong thing".

“I don’t have any idea whether she was tortured after being confined at the Health Ministry,” he told the media.

"Those were state's secrets. She did the wrong thing,” he said.

The son of former US President Donald Trump claims he is approached regularly by thankful US citizens, often receiving a tearful hug in recognition of his father.

Speaking to Fox News host Sean Hannity, Eric Trump made an impassioned plea to critics, saying despite their jeers, his father "still cares about this country".

“I can tell you more people have come up to me on the street in the last week and given me hugs saying ‘we miss him so much'," the 37-year-old said.

“Sometimes, Sean, with literal tears in their eyes.

"No matter what you say about him, he loves this country, and he's willing to fight for this country."

Mr Trump's appearance came after his father responded to the reports the Trump Organisation is under criminal investigation.

“We have informed the Trump Organisation that our investigation into the company is no longer purely civil in nature,” a spokesman for New York Attorney General Letitia James said in a brief statement yesterday.

“We are now actively investigating the Trump Organisation in a criminal capacity, along with the Manhattan District Attorney. We have no additional comment at this time.”

Ms James’ office has been investigating whether the former president’s business engaged in fraudulent practices by inflating or lowering the values of its properties to obtain better loans and tax breaks.

A Spanish border officer has managed to save a newborn baby from drowning the sea amid the latest border crisis in Ceuta.

8,000 migrants attempted to enter the Spanish enclave bordering Morocco in incredible scenes.

Spain's Guardia Civil posted a picture of an officer rescuing the migrant baby from the water off the shore, holding it inches above the surface.

Spanish locals have reportedly locked themselves indoors amid the latest influx, with essential COVID-19 jabs being suspended as border forces round up migrants desperately fleeing Morocco.

Worried officials in Brussels have urged Moroccan officials to stop the flow of people, while Spanish officials on the mainland have reacted by sending an additional 200 police to the African territory.

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has since promised to promises to “restore order at the borders” after the troubling influx.

A farmer has revealed the rural NSW mouse plague has gotten so bad in one area that the rodents have begun eating each other.

The new information came after Prime Minister Scott Morrison responded to a PETA activist's claims the critters were “bright and curious” and shouldn’t be poisoned.

Aleesha Naxakis said attempts at wiping out millions of mice plaguing farmers was a "dangerous notion of human supremacy”.

Mr Morrison said the comments were "pretty dopey", addressing the peculiar issue on Wednesday.

“It’s just one thing after another (for the farmers). And, apart from the comments being, I think very insensitive to the plight that those farmers are going through, I just think they’re pretty dopey,” Mr Morrison said.

Gently catch mice & release them unharmed. How insane. Tipping these people have never lived on a farm & had their livelihoods decimated by these rodents. 🐭🐁 https://t.co/au07TsP3NS #Mouse #plague #nsw pic.twitter.com/3KMW8KyY5Z

It comes as Gunnedah farmer Xavier Martin revealed the numbers of mice in his fields had gotten so extreme some of the mice had resorted to cannibalism.

“They eat each others’ heads off, and then by the time they get to the lungs and heart they tend to leave it,” said Mr Martin.

“You’ll find the lower half of a mouse left behind – so you still have to clean it up.”

A Palestinian journalist is among those dead in the latest bloody day of conflict in Gaza.

Al Jazeera reports radio journalist Yusef Abu Hussein died after Israeli strikes hit a residential building on Wednesday. It followed Israel's 122-bomb barrage in a 25-minute period on Gaza.

The Voice of Al-Aqsa radio station mourned the loss of its “son and employee”.

“We also document, in front of the world, this heinous crime committed by the Israeli enemy, including targeting civilians in their homes and attacking the press and media personnel,” the station said in a statement.

“Let us affirm that the Voice of Al-Aqsa Radio will continue to be a voice of truth that exposes the crimes of the Israeli occupation. We will remain a platform for Palestinian resistance and the Palestinian right until our people obtain their right to freedom and live in dignity.”

The current death toll in Palestine is 227, including 68 children. Israel's death toll sits at 12.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he is “determined to continue in this operation until its objective is achieved – to bring back the quiet and security to the citizens of Israel.”

Former US president Donald Trump has responded to the news that his business, the Trump Organisation, is under criminal investigation.

“We have informed the Trump Organisation that our investigation into the company is no longer purely civil in nature,” a spokesman for New York Attorney General Letitia James said in a brief statement yesterday.

“We are now actively investigating the Trump Organisation in a criminal capacity, along with the Manhattan District Attorney. We have no additional comment at this time.”

Ms James’ office has been investigating whether the former president’s business engaged in fraudulent practices by inflating or lowering the values of its properties to obtain better loans and tax breaks.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance has also been investigating Mr Trump’s financial affairs. In February, the US Supreme Court rejected Mr Trump’s effort to prevent Mr Vance’s office from obtaining his tax records.

In court documents, the DA’s office has said it is investigating possible “extensive and protracted criminal conduct”.

Malawi has destroyed nearly 17,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine that had expired in mid-April, with the health minister blaming “propaganda” for many Malawians’ reluctance to receive the jab.

“The batch which had expired (has) been withdrawn from our system and has been destroyed,” Health Minister Kumbize Kandodo said at the Kamuzu Central Hospital in the capital Lilongwe.

According to the BBC, it is the first African country to publicly burn thousands of COVID-19 vaccine doses.

The World Health Organisation initially pleaded with countries not to destroy any doses of the vaccine — expired or not — but has since updated its advice.

Incredible figures from the latest cryptocurrency crash has pointed to a $1 trillion loss in the erratic online market, with almost a third of its value being evaporated in recent weeks.

The hype surrounding Elon Musk — and the tech billionaire's erratic endorsement of certain coins — has been a large contributor to the recent freefall, with investors bailing on Bitcoin in droves.

Bitcoin has tumbled over $12,000 following Wednesday's crash, or nearly 30 per cent, while the second most popular crypto, Ether had around 40 per cent of its value disappear.

Incredibly, meme-based crypto dogecoin has lost as much as 50 per cent.

The latest crash came as Chinese officials banned financial institutions from using or providing cryptocurrencies for services.

“Part of it is they have their own digital renminbi, part is the lack of control in terms of cash outflows and part of it is trying to make sure people don’t get scammed,” Paul Haswell, a partner at law firm Pinsent Masons in Hong Kong, told Russian website RT.
