I trace how three idols stolen from a Hindu temple in southern #India in 1978, were discovered in the #UK. It’s taken years of work by art enthusiasts, inquiries by police teams in 2 countries. A 4th idol from the set, is suspected to be in Singapore. https://t.co/MAeOZ64KhJ

The Dubai Civil Aviation Authority has suspended #AirIndiaExpress flights to and from Dubai for 15 days, for flying two passengers with #COVID__19 positive test results from India to Dubai on two separate occasions.

Finished watching #TheSocialDilemma on #Netflix . Have to say it’s one of the most impactful documentaries I have seen in recent times. If you haven’t watched it, make sure you do. Totally worth it.

Not a big surprise but President Trump will now really push for Oman to also sign a similar deal with #Israel before the November election. The peace agreement in the Middle East has definitely been his biggest foreign policy achievement. #Bahrain https://t.co/GRH3u8Rpxf
