“They had made significant technological advancements as well as product designs in recent y

ears. They are now in a relatively good position to venture out into the advanced battlefields,” Xiang said.

Even as Oppo steps up expansion in Europe, it has filed over 33,000 patent applications worldwide as of January.

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.

  Both the officer and the suspect were transported to a local hospital, and the officer was treated and released. The suspect is listed in critical condition.

  Police said that per their policy, the identities of the officers involved will be released after 48 hours.

cel Hirscher has won eight straight World Cup overall titles but

  On the men’s circuit, Marcel Hirscher is arguably the greatest ski

racer there has ever been, but he hinted in Andorra his stellar career could be nearly over.

  The Austrian great has sealed an unprecedented eighth World Cup season

overall title as well as a sixth giant slalom season crown and fifth in a row.

  But the 29-year-old was unimpressed with his lackluster sixth place in the final

World Cup giant slalom of the season Saturday.

  ”If I ski further I have a lot of work to do,” he told Eurosport in the finish area in Soldeu.

  ”Before I have to have a clear mind and maybe as well I have to make the

right decision for the future what are my plans for the upcoming season.”

  Hirscher, whose wife Laura gave birth to the couple’s first child last year, has won 67 Wo

rld Cup races to sit third on the all-time list behind American Lindsey Vonn (82)

and Sweden’s Ingemar Stenmark (86).

  The Austrian star, who has also wrapped up a third straight slalom crown and sixth in to

tal, admitted at last month’s World Championships in Sweden that it could

be his last appearance at the biennial event.

Premji accounted for 80% of “large donations” defined as m

  100 million rupees ($1.4 million) — from India’s richest individuals in the 2018 financial year, according to this year’s India P

Ahmad Khan said he watched as a man was shot dead in his

  A total of 49 people were killed in the mosque attacks on Friday. The massacre has stunned residents, not just because it happen

ed there but also because it was planned to show the world that even the most peaceful places are not immune to terror.

  Australian citizen Brenton Tarrant, 28, has been charged with one count of murder. Two other peo

ple remain in police custody. New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern described it as “one of New Zealand’s darkest days.”

  Khan wasn’t the only member of his family touched by the shootings. A few blocks away

, at the Al Noor mosque, Khan’s uncle is believed to be one of 41 people gunned down there while praying.

  On Saturday, families waited patiently as officials worked to identify bodies. Yet while confirmation will bring some closure, questio

ns will linger as to how such a horrifying event can happen in a country many consider safe.

  ”We felt it was such a safe city, such a safe country,” a 30-year-

old construction project manager, who did not want to be named, told CNN. “The hatred has spread everywhere.”

New Zealanders have rallied around their fellow citizens in the

  wake of the Christchurch tragedy, laying flowers and messages of support on the side of Hagley Park, close to the Al Noor mosque.

  A makeshift memorial grew in the center of the main street, below traffic lights that flashed orange to indicate roads leading to the mosque were closed.

  No one was allowed to approach the building, not even local home owner Sue Harrison, whose c

ar was still parked in the driveway of her property behind the Deans Avenue mosque.

  Christchurch resident Sue Harrison heard the gunshots from her house, near to the Al

Noor mosque, and called the police. Her son Zin (right) called her to check she was alright.

  She remembers listening to the soothing chant of afternoo

n prayers when it was broken by gunshots. Harrison called the police and hid inside her

house as the gunman worked his way through the mosque, shooting as many people as he could.

  ”The time the shots were happening, it was terrifying, absolutely terrifying,” Har

rison said. “There was almost an immediate feeling that they’re being targeted.”

Barack Obama: “We grieve with you and the Muslim community”

  At least 49 people were killed and 20 seriously injured in two mass shootings at mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch.

  The victims: Forty-one people were killed at the al Noor mosque. Seven people died at the Linwood mosque, and one person died from their injuries in hospital.

  The suspect: Police said a male in his late 20s has been charged with murder and will appear at the Christchurch court Saturday morning local time.

  The manifesto: In a social media post just before the attack, an account that is believed to belong to one of the attackers posted a l

ink to an 87-page manifesto that was filled with anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim ideas and explanations for an attack. The manifesto was not signed.

  National security advisor John Bolton expanded upon the White House’s statement on the

attack on New Zealand mosques, which he characterized as “what seems to be a terrorist attack” and a “hate crime.”

  Bolton said the US is “very concerned” and is following the events “very closely.”

  He told reporters Friday morning:

  “We’re obviously greatly disturbed on what seems to be a terror attack, this hate crime in New Zealand. We’ve been in touch

with our embassy overnight, we’re still getting details, but the State Department and others are following up on it.”

  Bolton continued, “We’re very concerned, we’re going to cooperate with New Zealand authori

ties to the extent we can if there’s any role we can play, but we’re obviously following the events there very closely.”
