  Ganges River flows with history and prophecy for India ALONG THE GANGES, India (AP) — More than 2,000 years ago, a powerful king built a fort on the banks of India’s holiest river, on the fringes of what is now a vast industrial city.

The reduction will also hit Ireland, as the country has imposed 14-day quarantines on visitors from most other EU countries, notably Germany and the UK, Ryanair added.

"Over the past two weeks as a number of EU countries have raised travel restrictions, forward bookings especially for business travel... have been negatively affected, and it makes sense to reduce frequencies so that we tailor our capacity to demand," the statement said.

Having grounded almost its entire fleet in April-June, Ryanair resumed flights from July 1, with an aim of operating around 70 percent of its schedule in September.

They're angry, frustrated, and some are running out of money. They blame limits Australia has imposed on international arrivals, which have halved the number of citizens and residents who are able to return home each week.And they point to the government's decision to allow 300 international students to return to Australia next month as proof that the country's leaders have turned their backs on their own people.
