- Puerto Rico hit by island-wide power blackout
A power line failure in southern Puerto Rico cut electricity to almost all 3.4 million residents on Wednesday, the latest in a string of operational and political headaches for the U.S. territory's bankrupt, storm-ravaged power utility. In a statement, the Puerto Rican Electric Power Authority, known as PREPA, said "technical personnel" were working to determine a cause and expected to restore service in 24 to 36 hours. Puerto Rico's smaller islands of Culebra and Vieques, as well as a pair of microgrids on the main island, were unaffected.

- Jewish men beaten with belt in Berlin anti-Semitic attack
There has been public outrage in Germany after video footage emerged of two Jewish men being violently assaulted in an apparent anti-Semitic attack in central Berlin. The two men, who were both wearing kippah, traditional Jewish skullcaps, were insulted before being set upon and whipped with a belt in one of the city?s most fashionable neighbourhoods. A group of three unidentified men can be heard on the video clearly shouting ?Yahudi?, the Arabic word for Jew. The two victims stood their ground and threatened to call the police before their main assailant was dragged away by his companions. The incident was videoed by one of the victims, who was named by Israeli television as Adam Armoush, a 21-year-old Israeli citizen living in Berlin. Antisemitischer Angriff in #Berlin ? ein Mann schlägt mit einem Gürtel auf einen Mann ein und bezeichnet ihn wiederholt als "Yahudi" (arabisch für "Jude"). #Antisemitismuspic.twitter.com/YCHVgCF1ox? Jüdisches Forum (@JFDA_eV) April 17, 2018 ?They kept cursing at us and my friend asked them to stop,? Mr Armoush, who suffered minor injuries, told Kan TV. ?They started to get angry and one of them ran at me and I knew it was important to film it because there would be no way to catch him by the time the police arrived.? The video shows the attacker whipping Mr Arnoush with a belt. The 21-year-old said he had suffered bruises and minor injuries. The other victim, a 24-year-old Israeli citizen, has not been named. The incident is the latest in a disturbing series of attacks on Jewish people in the German capital, which have seen men in skullcaps assaulted on the streets and Jewish children threatened in schools. Most of the incidents have involved Muslim assailants. ?It is intolerable for young men to be attacked here just because they are wearing a kippah,? Heiko Maas, the German foreign minister, said in a statement. ?Jews must never again feel threatened here. It is our responsibility to protect Jewish life.? ?Anti-Semitism doesn?t belong to the Berlin we want to live in,? Michael Müller, the city?s mayor said. ?It is unbearable to see a young Jewish man being attacked on the street in the well-heeled Berlin neighbourhood of Prenzlauer Berg because he recognizes himself as a Jew,? Levi Salomon of the Jewish Forum for Democracy and Against Anti-Semitism. ?This shows that Jewish people are not safe here. Politicians and civil society have to act. We do not need Sunday speeches anymore, we need action.? ?It makes me angry when I see such hateful violence,? Aiman Mazyek of the Central Council of Muslims in Germany said. ?Anti-Semitism must not be given an inch of space.?

Navy developers of the new high-tech, stealthy USS Zumwalt destroyer are widening the mission envelope for the ship, exploring new ammunition for its guns and preparing to fire its first missiles next year.

- Assad steps up efforts to crush last besieged enclaves
By Angus McDowall and Suleiman Al-Khalidi BEIRUT/AMMAN (Reuters) - The Syrian government stepped up its efforts on Thursday to retake the opposition's last besieged enclaves, as rebels prepared to withdraw from one and a newspaper reported an ultimatum against another. President Bashar al-Assad scored a major victory this month by retaking eastern Ghouta, the biggest rebel stronghold near Damascus, putting his forces in by far their strongest position since the early months of the seven-year-old civil war. The United States, Britain and France launched a volley of air strikes on Saturday against three Syrian targets in retaliation for a suspected chemical weapons strike during the Ghouta assault.
