TIGER TRADE BAN LIFTED CONSERVATION groups have condemned a decision by China to allow trading in products made from endangered tigers and rhinos under special circumstances, reversing a longstanding ban. The government said this week it would control the trade, and rhino horns and tiger bones could only be obtained from farmed animals for use in medical research or in healing. The WWF said it would have devastating consequences.

Picture: AFP THOUSANDS of Central American migrants in a caravan travelling through Mexico planned to rest at least a day or longer in the southern city of Juchitan beginning Wednesday, hoping to organise mass transport northward after days of hard walking in tropical temperatures that have left them about 1450km from the nearest US border crossing. A second group, of 1000 or so migrants who forced their way into Mexico on Monday, was trailing some 400km back, stopping for the night in the city of Tapachula. At a Tuesday evening as sembly, participants in the bigger group named a committee to negotiate with Mexican authorities over a possible bridge plan that could leapfrog them to the Mexicos capital by bus. There was no AP Some of the migrants 610, said armed forces chief Hadi Tjahjanto. Were going to see it ourselves on location. And hopefully that is the main body of the plane that weve been looking for. Rescuers inspect wreckage Migrants hope to get transport indication from officials if the request to transport the perhaps 4000 people remaining in the group would be granted. Starting out in Honduras more than two weeks ago, the caravan migrants have spent their nights camping out in the main squares of small cities in the southern states of Chiapas and now Oaxaca. But a deadly earthquake last year destroyed Juchitans central market, prompting it to be provisionally moved to the main square meaning there was no room for the migrants. Instead they spent the night on a municipal-owned block on the outskirts of town with a cement floor. A MASSIVE search effort has identified the possible seabed location of the crashed Lion Air jet, Indonesias military chief said yesterday, as experts carried out the grim task of identifying dozens of body parts recovered from a 15 nautical mile search area. The two-month-old Boeing plane plunged into the Java Sea on Monday just minutes after takeoff from Jakarta, killing all 189 people on board. This morning Ive been briefed by the head of Search and Rescue Agency about the strong possibility of the location coordinates of Flight Possible Lion Air crash site found The disaster has reignited concerns about safety in Indonesias fast-growing aviation industry, which was recently removed from European Union and US blacklists, and also raised doubts about the safety of Boeings new generation 737 MAX 8 plane. Boeing Co experts were expected to arrive in Indonesia yesterday and Lion Air has said an intense internal investigation is under way in addition to the probe by safety regulators. Locating the fuselage will bring the search effort closer to finding the aeroplanes flight recorders, which are crucial to the accident investigation. AP C H I N A Pittsburghs Jewish leaders saying the President was not welcome unless he fully denounced white nationalism. Republican and Democratic congressional leaders declined a White House invitation to join Mr Trump in the city. Pittsburghs mayor Bill Peduto, a Democrat, opposed the presidential visit. The emotional and dissonant scene reflected the increasingly divided nation that has been gripped by a week of political violence and hate, and is hurtling toward contentious midterm elections. On their arrival in Pittsburgh, the Trumps entered the vestibule of the synagogue, where they lit candles for each victim before stepping outside. Shouts of Words matter! and Trump, go home! could be heard from demonstrators gathered near where a gunman opened fire on Sunday. Rabbi Jeffrey Myers, who had been conducting services when the shots rang out, gestured at the white Star of David posted for each victim. At each, the President placed a stone, a Jewish burial tradition, while the First Lady added a flower. They were accompanied by daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, who are Jewish. Near the synagogue, flowers, candles and chalk drawings filled a street corner, including a small rock painted with 6,000,011, adding the weekends victims to the estimated number of Jews killed in the Holocaust. The Trumps later spent more than an hour at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Centre, where some of the injured are recovering. PRESIDENT Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump paid homage yesterday to each of the 11 people shot dead in a Pittsburgh synagogue, the worst incident of anti-Semitic violence in American history. But as the couple placed their tributes outside the Tree of Life synagogue, hundreds of protesters shouted at the President to go home. More than 70,000 people signed an open letter from Mr Trump spoke to wounded police officers and spent an hour with the widow of victim Dr Richard Gottfried. Yesterday, the first funerals were held for the victims, who range in age from 54 to 97. The dead include a set of brothers, a husband and wife, professors, dentists and a physician. The gunman, truck driver Robert Bowers, 46, is now in custody and faces 29 criminal charges. He was discharged from hospital on Tuesday.
