TODAY'S TOP STORIES

Protests near Minneapolis after a fatal police shooting, festival fears in India, and the demise of plug-in hybrid cars

Hundreds of angry protesters clashed with police in a Minneapolis suburb after a 20-year-old Black man was shot dead during a traffic stop.

The man killed by police was identified by relatives and Minnesota Governor Tim Walz as Daunte Wright, aged 20.

The protests in Brooklyn Center came hours before the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer charged with murdering George Floyd, was set to resume in a courtroom less than 10 miles away.

Prosecutors are preparing to rest their case this week against Chauvin, bolstered by police testimony and emotional eyewitness descriptions. We spoke to Benjamin Crump, the civil rights lawyer who is fighting for Floyd's family.

Meanwhile, one of two police officers in Virginia accused of assaulting a U.S. Army lieutenant by pointing their guns and pepper spraying him during a traffic stop has been fired.

India reported a record daily tally of 168,912 COVID-19 infections, the world’s highest, while worries are growing over a further spike, as hundreds of thousands of devotees gather for a ritual bath in the Ganges river.

Iran blames regional arch-foe Israel for a sabotage incident at its key Natanz nuclear site and will exact revenge, state TV quoted its foreign minister as saying, in what appeared to be the latest episode in a long-running covert war.

Ecuadorean banker Guillermo Lasso unexpectedly won the nation’s presidency on promises to revive an economy battered by coronavirus as his rival’s vows of a return to socialist largesse failed to win over a skeptical electorate.

Prince Harry, whose explosive interview alongside his wife Meghan plunged the royal family into its biggest crisis in decades, has arrived back in Britain for Prince Philip’s funeral. Meghan, who is pregnant, will not attend on the advice of her doctor.

BUSINESS

U.S. Treasury auctions offering $271 billion of new debt and a key inflation report this week could end a recent lull in the bond market, reigniting a rise in yields that worried investors in the first quarter.

Most CEOs on a call to discuss a new push against U.S. state voting restrictions said they will reassess donating to candidates who fail to support voting rights, while many will consider holding back investments in states that restrict voting access, according to people familiar with the matter.

Bill Reith felt the blast of February’s freak cold snap in Texas almost immediately - from inside his office in northern Indiana. We look at how the storm sent a chill through America's RV industry.

Remember when plug-in hybrid cars were the go-to technology for the climate-conscious driver? Turns out, they’re not good for the environment, and they could be phased out by carmakers in the face of tougher European rules.
