Van Dijk injury causes concern for frustrated Liverpool

  Van Dijk injury causes concern for frustrated Liverpool Virgil van Dijk has been a commanding — even transcendent — presence at the heart of Liverpool’s defense throughout the team’s rise to the top of English and European soccer in recent years. In a major concern for the Premier League champions, they might have to learn how to cope without their warrior at the back for quite some time. Early in what proved to be a painful Merseyside derby for Liverpool, Van Dijk was the subject of a reckless lunge by Jordan Pickford that saw the Everton goalkeeper clatter into the extended right leg of the Netherlands defender.

LONDON (Reuters) - British police said on Sunday they were dealing with an incident aboard an oil tanker near the coast of the Isle of Wight, an island off the southern coast of England, and British media said a small number of stowaways had been found.

Two sources with knowledge of the situation said the vessel was the tanker Nave Andromeda.

Sky News said up to seven stowaways had been discovered on board, and broadcast live images of the ship. The BBC cited lawyers for the ship's owners as saying it was "100% not a hijacking". Reuters has contacted the owners for comment.

Safety board: Lack of oversight blamed for deadly boat fire

  Safety board: Lack of oversight blamed for deadly boat fire Federal safety officials on Tuesday blamed the deaths of 34 people in a fire aboard a Southern California scuba dive boat directly on the vessel owner's failures to oversee its vessel and crew properly. © Provided by Associated Press FILE - In this Sept. 2, 2019, file photo provided by the Santa Barbara County Fire Department, the dive boat Conception is engulfed in flames after a deadly fire broke out aboard the commercial scuba diving vessel off the Southern California Coast.

Police did not immediately confirm details of the incident to Reuters. Britain's interior ministry, which is responsible for border control, did not have any immediate comment.

The local police force said in a statement, "We are aware and dealing with an ongoing incident on board a vessel which is situated south of the Isle of Wight".

The coastguard agency said search and rescue helicopters were attending the incident but did not give details.

Refinitiv vessel tracking data showed the Liberia-flagged Nave Andromeda had been expected to arrive in the English port of Southampton at 1030 GMT on Sunday. The vessel had departed from Lagos, Nigeria, the data showed.

The Nave Andromeda's registered owner is Folegandros Shipping Corp, and the vessel is managed by Greek shipping company Navios Tankers Management Inc., according to Refinitiv.

'A fanciful reality': Trump claims Black Lives Matter protests are violent, but the majority are peaceful

  'A fanciful reality': Trump claims Black Lives Matter protests are violent, but the majority are peaceful The USA TODAY Network talked to residents in Portland, Milwaukee, Detroit, Chicago and Louisville to find out how protests have affected their cities."I've lost 34 friends to gun violence and police brutality, and it pushes me to keep going and show love," said resident Juanita Tennyson, 23, who has hosted three of these marches and a series of food drives since George Floyd's killing on Memorial Day. "People think protests are bad and violent, and they're not. They can be beautiful and peaceful and calm.

A spokesperson for the UK Chamber of Shipping said: “We are aware of an incident onboard the Nave Andromeda off the Isle of Wight and are in contact with the relevant authorities. We believe it is likely to be related to stowaways onboard but are awaiting more information.”

Lawmaker Bob Seely, who represents the Isle of Wight constituency closest to the vessel, told Sky News he expected the incident to be handled by marine counter-terrorism forces, but that it was too early to call it a hijacking.

In December 2018 British forces stormed an Italian cargo ship and regained control after stowaways threatened crew members as it sailed close to the coast of southeast England.
