Twelve operating theatres worked through the night on

he more than 40 people wounded, said hospital authorities. Thirty six people were still

being treated on Saturday, of which 11 remained in intensive care. One victim died in hospital.

“The wounds from gunshots are often quite significant,” Christch

urch Hospital’s Chief of Surgery Greg Robertson told reporters. “Many of the peop

le require multiple trips to the theatre to deal with the complex series of injuries they have.”

Funerals were planned on Saturday for some of the victims, several of whom were bor

n overseas.
Dozens of people laid flowers at cordons near both mosques in Christchurch, whic

Wearing a black scarf over her head, Ardern hugged members of the Muslim community at a Chr

istchurch refugee center on Saturday. “I convey the message of love and support on behalf of New Zealand to all of you,” she said.

The Chinese community in New Zealand’s Christchurch has

stood out following Friday’s terrorist attacks on two mosques, condemning terrorism and expressing their support for the victims by donating money.

Although there was no Chinese casualty in the attacks, the Chinese commu

nity is closely following the situation and cares about all victims, Canton Chamber of Co

mmerce in New Zealand, an organization of local Chinese merchants, said in a statement Saturday.

“No racism, no violence, no terrorism of any form!” said the statement.

The chamber has asked all its members to donate money for the victi

ms and is in contact with the Consulate General of China in Christchurch to voice support and

condolences for the victims on behalf of all Chinese in the city, said the statement.

The University of Canterbury Chinese Students & Scholars Society also expressed shock and regret over the atta

cks on Saturday, saying the atrocities have destroyed many people’s lives and aroused deep anger.

If they don’t talk to us, we’re going to do something that’

  going to be very severe economically,” Trump said. “We’re going to tariff a lot of their products coming in.”

  Most leaders go out of their way to avoid antagonizing their counterparts and wading into their delicate domestic politics.

  Not Trump.

  The exchange also revealed another one of Trump’s political tools: his fervent effort to inject an

appeal to his base — in this case on a signature issue, trade — into almost every political situa

tion.Trump also launched a mini-campaign rally, seizing on the Senate vote undoing his emergency declaration, to s

pell out his hardline policies on immigration and the wall — always with an eye on his most loyal voters.

  In an interview published by Breitbart News this week, Trump revealed another aspect of his character — a sense

that he is being persecuted unfairly — that helps him identify with voters who feel neglected by political elites.

  Complaining about Democratic investigations, the

President made a jarring comment that hinted at the possibility of political violence.

The Olympic giant slalom champion won three giant slalo

  Hirscher’s season tally of 10 wins was reduced to nine after the Court of Arbitration for Sport upheld Stefan Luitz’s ap

peal against a doping violation and reinstated the German’s victory in Beaver Creek on December 2.

  Luitz was disqualified when he was photographed inhaling oxygen from a mouthpiece between the fi

rst and second runs. The International Ski Federation (FIS) ruled it was against anti-doping rules at FIS events. Luitz lodged an app

eal on January 29 and it was heard on March 11. The panel ruled that the World Anti-Doping Code prevails over FIS laws.

  ”FIS fully accepts the decision of CAS and all World Cup records and the World Cup star

ting list for giant slalom has been adjusted to reflect the decision,” said an FIS statement.

His full political arsenal was on display in a Trumpian mastercl

  class of a photo-op in the Oval Office Thursday with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar.

  A historian 100 years hence could pull the tape of the 16-minute tour de force and learn everything they needed to know about the Trump presidency.

  Trump’s behavior on Thursday offered pointers to how he will attempt to ride out political crosswinds using the uni

que political tools that made his late-in-life transition from business to Washington so successful.

  Thursday’s rebuke from Congress came amid a spell that wo

uld have been disastrous for any conventional politician, as legal and congressional probe

s suggest tough challenges ahead as special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report looms. Unusually, it also included a

slap from some Republicans who have been loath to challenge their leader in the first two years of his presidency.

  Trump’s refusal to show weakness or humility in defeat allied with a brazen, relentless

temperament and an indifference to shame helps explain why he is so hard to bring down.

Showing off sometimes diabolical but compelling politic

  skills, Trump was audacious, provocative and spiteful. He made outrageous boasts about his own success and hin

ted at his acute sense of human nature and feral appreciation of weakness and discomfort in a political opponent.

  Trump also showed his indifference, or rude disregard for the political plights of allied le

aders, indulged his willingness to trade in falsehoods, and betrayed his obsessions with his predecessor President Barack Obama.

  At Thursday’s White House meeting, Trump was also asked by a reporter about the fre

shest entrant in the Democratic White House race — former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke. He was ready.

  ”Well, I think he’s got a lot of hand movement. I’ve never seen so much hand movement. I said is he crazy or is that just the way he acts.”

  ”Study it, I’m sure you’ll agree,” Trump told reporters.

  The jab at O’Rourke was not just a throwaway. It was a return to the forensic

targeting of political opponents that helped Trump dismantle the Republican primary field in 2016.

Mocking O’Rourke’s gestures might seem a frivolous at a time

  of national political angst and with a heavy duty policy debate already under way. But Trump is an expert at trivializing and belittling opponents, to de

tract from the gravity of their arguments and to feed the conservative media machine.

  His diagnosis of Jeb Bush’s “low energy” four years ago established a narrative about the former Florida gove

rnor’s campaign that hinted at a grain of truth. The one-time GOP front-runner could never recover.

  Trump vs. Brexit — and Obama

  At one point in the meeting Tump, said he wasn’t going to “comment on Bre

xit,” but characteristically unable to constrain himself, could barely leave the topic alone.

  At the start of his meeting, Trump welcomed Varadkar, and poin

ting out that his visitor was in a difficult position over Britain’s tortured attempts to comp

lete its withdrawal from the European Union, which could harm Ireland’s peace and prosperity.

S Air Force says Boeing has ‘severe situation’ after trash fo

  In a blistering attack on Boeing, the Air Force’s top acquisition official said the company has a “severe situation” with flawed inspectio

ns of its new KC-46 air refueling tanker aircraft, after trash and industrial tools were found in some planes after they were delivered to the Air Force.

  Dr. Will Roper, assistant secretary of the Air Force for acquisition, technology and logisti

cs, made clear his concerns after visiting Boeing’s Everett Washington plant where the plane is assembled.

  ”I left concerned, and I also left thinking Boeing understands they have a sever

e situation that’s going to take top level engagement from their company,” Roper said.

  After discovering the problem, the Air Force stopped accepting the new tankers from Boeing on February 20.R

oper visited the plant on Monday and, after getting a company promise for a new inspection plan, deliveries are res

uming as upgraded inspections are completed. Six aircraft that had already been received were re-inspected by the Air Force.

  ”We are doing more stringent inspections so we feel confident before we accept any plane from Boeing,” Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek told CNN.

  While the discovery of trash and tools in the planes is not a result o

f design flaw, or a specific safety concern, Air Force officials privately told CNN they were

aware that the timing of the problem is exceptionally sensitive for Boeing after the grounding of its 737 Max jet.

More than 61,000 people were indicted in connectio

n with related crimes last year, and a group of mafia-like gangs that had been bullying people were punished.

Faced with an increase in crimes that harm minors in recent years, the top procurato

rate and all provincial-level procuratorates have established special prosecutorial departments to handle cas

es involving minors — the first such practice among all judicial agencies in the country, Zhang said.

A total of 1,761 chief procurators across the country have held concurrent posts as vice-principal

s of primary or middle schools in charge of education about the law and to ensure a safe campus, he said.

To better handle petitions from the public, the top procuratorate has instructed prosecuting

authorities to put themselves in the place of the petitioners and provide feedback on each petition within seven days.

hina Aerospace Science and Industry Corp will soon l

launch the nation’s biggest solid-propellant carrier rocket and is working on new models that will be even larger and stronger, a project insider said.

Hu Shengyun, a senior rocket designer at the CASIC Fourth Academy in Wuh

an, Hubei province, which develops and builds the Kuaizhou series, said the mai

den mission of the Kuaizhou 11 will take place soon at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwestern China.

He spoke to China Daily on the sidelines of the ongoing second session of the 13th National

People’s Congress in Beijing as he attends the national legislature’s annual meeting.

The researcher said the Kuaizhou 11 is China’s largest and most powerful solid-propellant carrier rocket, with a length of 25 m

eters, a diameter of 2.2 meters, and a liftoff weight of 78 metric tons. It is able to place a 1-metric-ton payload into a su

n-synchronous orbit at an altitude of 700 kilometers, or a 1.5-ton payload into a low-Earth orbit.
