The US President (top right) wrote the message on Twitter after revealing he had urged his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping to pressure Pyongyang in to stopping its nuclear programme. His warning came as Russia admitted it is 'extremely worried' the US will attack Kim Jong-Un (bottom right) after North Korea warned it has US bases 'in its nuclear sights'. Pyongyang had earlier threatened 'catastrophic consequences' after Donald Trump sent an armada of warships to the Korean Peninsula (left). At the same time, China has moved 150,000 troops to its border to deal with a possible influx of North Korean refugees amid fears Trump may strike Kim Jong-un following the surprise US missile attack on Syria last week.
Lula and Simba are safe at last! Bear and lion left starving in Mosul zoo after ISIS overran the city arrive in Jordan
Simba the lion and Lula the bear, the ailing last two residents of Mosul zoo (top photos), were flown out of Iraq Monday to receive emergency care from an animal welfare centre in Jordan. The pair were found at Montazah Al-Morour zoo as fighting engulfed Mosul, and were trapped in damaged cages without proper care or enough food. Lula (left) is now living in a grass-covered enclosure for the first time in her life. The charity said she will live there until she has adapted to her new surroundings. Meanwhile, Simba is still 'a little shy and enjoys the comfort of his crate'.
Shameless rise of the 'beg-packers': Astonishing phenomenon of Western backpackers who beg for money to fund their travelling as they journey through some of the world's poorest regions
A rising number of Western backpackers begging to fund their trips through southeast Asia has caused outrage among locals, who say they are taking money from the truly needy. Residents also complained that the 'beg-packers' seem to be openly flouting rules on busking, such as in Singapore, where you require a work permit to perform for donations. Similar tactics have also caused outrage online, where people often use crowdfunding or charity websites to ask for money to fund their trips.
Russian policeman who murdered a couple and their young son denies he is a cannibal after he was found with a cup of BLOOD and the woman's head in his fridge
Mikhail Dronik, 40, a former Russian policeman and army commander, has been jailed for 18 years after being found guilty of murdering a family of three inside their Moscow apartment. Dronik, also a former wrestler, stabbed Vyacheslav Savyolov, 43, his wife Yulia, 42, and their son Nikita, seven, to death in a dispute over money. He then used kitchen knives, a meat mincer and sulphuric acid to try and destroy their bodies. Police arriving at the scene described it as worse than a horror movie.
France implodes over jihadist threat: Prison guards chanting 'the state against the state' clash with police as they protest outside Europe's biggest jail which they say is a hotbed of terrorism
Around 350 guards who work in Fleury-Merogis, in the southern suburbs of Paris, were protesting against conditions that have become a breeding ground for radicalism (left, inset bottom shows footage of the riots). They set up barricades and lit fires, before riot police moved in shortly after 10pm last night. The protests were organised by a number of prison officer trade unions who say their jobs are becoming harder every day because of overcrowding and increased violence. There are some 4,500 inmates in the prison, which was built in the 1960s to accommodate around 3,000. Current inmates include Salah Abdeslam, the 27-year-old Islamic State operative who survived the November 2015 attacks on Paris (inset top right).
