The head of British diplomacy, Liz Truss, announced her candidacy for the post of head of the Conservative Party and for the post of British Prime Minister instead of Boris Johnson, who resigned after a series of scandals.

“I will fight as a conservative in this election and I will rule as a conservative,” Liz Truss, 46, told the Daily Telegraph columns.

Truss joins nine other Conservative leader candidates to secure a majority in the House of Commons (parliament) and therefore Downing Street.

The “race” to replace Boris Johnson had already registered a new competitor earlier in the day when Secretary of State for Commerce Penny Mordaunt announced her candidacy, joining eight already announced candidates.

The “race” now has ten “conservative” deputies, including three ministers.

The list of candidates included former health minister Sajid Javid, new finance minister Nadhim Zahavi, and former foreign and health minister Jeremy Hunt, who faced Boris Johnson over the leadership of the Conservative Party in 2019.

UK Transport Minister Grant Shapps announced the nomination after Johnson resigned as leader of the Conservative Party and therefore as head of the UK government on Thursday.

In addition to Grant Shapps, former Economics Secretary Rishi Sunak, House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Tom Tugendhat, Attorney General Suella Braverman and former Secretary of State for Equality Kemi Badenok.

Suitcases containing the remains of two children sold at auction in New Zealand

Published

on

New Zealand police said the remains of two children were found in suitcases bought at an auction in Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city.

Inspector Tofilau Faamanuia Waaelua said that the bodies of the victims, aged between five and ten years, were probably hidden for several years in two suitcases of the same size.

“The nature of the discovery makes the investigation challenging, especially given the time that has elapsed between death and discovery,” Waaelua said.

The family found the bags after purchasing a trailer full of items sold in bulk from a warehouse, with an official stating that the family in question was unrelated to the death but “understandably distraught at the find.”

Police, who also called Interpol, are searching the trailer for other household items and personal items to identify the victims.

The warehouse and property where the bags were found were thoroughly inspected by a forensic team.

“We are doing our best to identify the victims” in order to bring to justice the perpetrator or perpetrators of the deaths of these children, Waaelua said.
