In from the cold People sleep on makeshift pallet beds at a warehouse in Bruzgi, near the border with Poland, where Belarus was accused of engineering an artificial migrant crisis with the EU.

countdown to qatar, floods in canada and trump’s 2024 threat

Around a year after the stunning announcement, in 2010, that the tiny, oil-rich Gulf nation of Qatar would host the 2022 football World Cup, the Guardian journalist Pete Pattisson began investigating why dozens of Nepalese workers repatriated from Qatar back to their families had never made it home alive. It was the beginning of nearly 10 years of reporting by the Guardian into the often brutal conditions faced by hundreds of thousands of migrant workers tasked with building Qatar’s state-of-the-art stadiums, as well as the roads, hotels and infrastructure needed to host the biggest sporting event on Earth. With a year to go until the tournament kicks off, Pattisson considers what has really changed for Qatar’s migrant workers, while David Conn asks what the most controversial World Cup in history will…

SPACE Russia admits missile test but denies ‘dangerous behaviour’ Russia last week admitted to destroying one of its satellites during a missile test but rejected US accusations that it had endangered the International Space Station. US officials accused Moscow of “dangerous and irresponsible behaviour” after it conducted an anti-satellite weapons test that threatened the lives of the seven astronauts on board the ISS. The Russian defence ministry said it had destroyed its Tselina-D satellite, which had been in orbit since 1982, and claimed that the “fragments that formed do not pose any threat to space activity”.

The increasingly extreme demands come as Patel is being put under “immense pressure” from Downing Street and Conservative MPs over government efforts to halt the crossings. The government has repeatedly promised to make such crossings “unviable” and pledged tens of millions of pounds to France to help tackle the issue but…
