Rurik Jutting fit to stand trial

Rurik Jutting is fit to stand trial for the double murder of two sex workers, a Hong Kong court has ruled.

The British ex-pat has been accused of murdering Sumarti Ningsih and Seneng Mujiasi, who were found dead in his flat on November 1. The Cambridge graduate had been referred for psychiatric tests in Hong Kong earlier this month, but the judge ruled the 29-year-old was fit to stand trial after two weeks in a secure unit.

The trial will begin in July.

'Drain baby' mum charged with attempted murder

Sydney has been rocked by the discovery of the baby

The mother of an infant who was found at the bottom of a Sydney drain has been charged with attempted murder, local police have announced.

The baby boy was allegedly left in the drain for five days before he was rescued by cyclists who happened to be passing and heard his cries. The newborn was wrapped in a hospital blanked and had survived a 2.5m drop.

Inspector David Lagats said the boy had no signs of physical injury but was malnourished and remains in a serious but stable condition in hospital. Officers said the baby would not have lived much longer if he had remained in the drain as the city has had temperatures above 30c over the last few days.

British-Iranian arrested in Iran released on bail

A British-Iranian woman who had been arrested in Iran for trying to watch a volleyball match has been released on bail, her relieved relatives have said.

Ghoncheh Ghavami was taken into custody by Iranian authorities in June, and kept behind bars despite going on hunger strike twice and an international outcry. The 25-year-old was found guilty last month of "propagating against the ruling system" and received a custodial sentence.

Iranian authorities released her on bail after she had served five months because Ghoncheh has been suffering from "intestinal problems". Her brother Iman Ghavami told ITV News she had been released to stay with her parents until the Court of Appeal decides if she has to serve the remainder of her sentence.

New anti-terror measures expected

A raft of counter-terror measures will be revealed by the Home Secretary today, with a ban on insurance companies shelling out the cost of terrorist ransoms.]

According to the Home Office:

  • Theresa May said the Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill would make it a clear offence for firms to reimburse relatives or employers who pay a ransom
  • Islamic State (IS) linked terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq have been using kidnappings to raise funds - with the UN estimating the tactic has brought in £28 million over the past year
  • But the Home Office says there has been an element of "uncertainty" about whether UK-based insurers were prohibited from paying claims made by companies and families who had met ransom demands
  • The Counter-Terrorism Bill will force internet service providers (ISPs) to retain information linking Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to individual users
  • Police chiefs are concerned young men and women have been radicalised by content published by terror groups online
