Atlanta Mayor Orders Protesters to 'Clear Out' After 8-Year-Old Girl Fatally ShotThe mayor of Atlanta is forcing protesters to "clear out" of the Wendy's where a police officer fatally shot Rayshard Brooks last month after a violent night that included a dozen shootings citywide and the death of an 8-year-old girl, the mayor said Sunday. "You shot and killed a baby," Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said at a news conference. "Enough is enough."Secoriea Turner was shot and killed less than a half mile from the Wendy's, which had become a place of memorial and protest since Brooks's death on June 12. Three suspects have been arrested on suspicion of arson after protesters set the fast-food joint ablaze the day after Brooks's death.Interim police chief Rodney Bryant said the girl was in a car with her mother and an adult friend Saturday night when the driver tried to pull into a liquor store parking lot and was confronted by a group of armed people who had blocked the entrance, NBC News reported. "At some point someone in the group opened fire, striking the car multiple times," he said.Police are investigating the incident. No suspects have been identified.Protesters had put up illegal barriers, at times flanked by armed protesters, to keep police out of the area near Wendy's. The city reportedly had tried to take down the barriers multiple times in recent weeks. Authorities had been notified of the barriers' resurrection less than an hour before the shooting. The Atlanta Police Department told Fox 5 they had planned on checking out the area but were swamped with other 911 calls."We're doing each other more harm than any police officer on this force," said Bottoms, who had allowed protesters to occupy the Wendy's for weeks during open discussions. "We've had over 75 shootings in the city over the past several weeks. You can't blame that on APD."Within hours of the mayor's announcement three more people were shot, one fatally, when two people exchanged gunfire, Fox 5 reported. "They say black lives matter," said the victim's father, Secoriya Williamson. "You killed your own. You killed your own this time just because of a barrier. They killed my baby because she crossed the barrier and made a U-turn."

Australia warns of 'arbitrary detention' in ChinaAustralia warned its citizens Tuesday they could face "arbitrary detention" if they travel to China, the latest sign of growing tensions between the two nations. The foreign ministry issued the warning in updated travel advice, which also noted that Chinese authorities had detained foreigners for allegedly "endangering national security". Australia has already told its citizens to avoid all international travel due to the coronavirus pandemic, and the updated advice did not raise the overall level of the warning against travel to China.

Nearly half of Brits back plan to give 3m people from Hong Kong path to citizenshipNearly half of British adults support the Government's proposal to welcome Hong Kongers, a poll has revealed. The Savanta ComRes survey found just one in four oppose the proposal to offer Hong Kongers that hold British National Overseas (BNO) Passports and their dependents a bespoke five-year visa, with the pathway to later apply for full UK citizenship. Over two in five Brits (42 per cent) expressed support for Boris Johnson having made this offer, with just one in four (25 per cent) expressing any opposition. Support is higher among those who say they are familiar with recent events in Hong Kong, with half (50 per cent) expressing outright support. Not since 1997 and the handover of Hong Kong to the People's Republic of China has the UK ever been involved in such a heated clash over the territory's future.
