Pompeo to meet Netanyahu in Israel after Turkey meeting
Friday, 18 October 2019 U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was due to meet Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem on Friday, hours after Turkey agreed with the United States to pause its offensive on Kurdish forces in Syria.
The United States may ban Chinese-video sharing app TikTok, said President Donald Trump, amidst rising tensions between Beijing and Washington on a range of issues. "We are looking at TikTok, we may be banning TikTok. We may be doing some other things, we have a couple of options. We are looking at a lot of alternatives with respect to TikTok," he said. Trump added that he would sign an executive order and take action as soon as Saturday. In July, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had said that the Trump administration was considering a ban on TikTok application. The ban on access to TikTok was being considered over privacy concerns, Pompeo had added. Video-sharing application TikTok is owned by Beijing-based startup ByteDance. Recently, India had banned 59 Chinese mobile apps including TikTok, WeChat and Helo. Most of the apps banned in the June 29 order were red-flagged by intelligence agencies. The apps were banned with a view of threat to the nation's sovereignty and security.

Boris Johnson’s convoy was targeted by a protester as the Prime Minister left the Palace of Westminster. The demonstrator, who had been protesting about Turkish action against Kurdish rebels, ran into the road outside the gates to Parliament. This forced the lead vehicles in the convoy – a police motorbike and the Prime Minister’s Jaguar – to stop, with a support vehicle running into the back of the luxury saloon carrying Mr Johnson. The vehicles drove off shortly afterwards in the direction of Downing Street, with a large dent visible on the rear of the Jaguar. Downing Street said there were no reports of anyone being injured in the incident. The protester was detained by police and taken into the Palace of Westminster by officers.
