The country is also hosting international climate talks in November in Glasgow, where countries are expected to outline plans to meet the Paris climate agreement to keep global warming under 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit).

Buckingham Palace, which has come under fire from Queen Elizabeth's grandson Prince Harry and his wife Meghan for the way it deals with race, has not done enough to increase diversity among staff, a senior royal source has said. In its annual report on the Sovereign Grant, which details the queen's taxpayer-funded spending, the palace said on Wednesday that only 8.5% of its staff were from ethnic minorities, the first time it has given such a breakdown. The palace says it aims to have 10% of staff from ethnic minorities by the end of 2022.
Portugal coach Fernando Santos has described the dilemma he faced during his side's 2-2 draw Euro 2020 Group F with France on Wednesday but insisted his players went out looking for the win even though they risked being knocked out. The holders were facing a shock exit when Karim Benzema put France 2-1 up as outsiders Hungary were beating Germany. Even when Cristiano Ronaldo equalised with his second penalty, Portugal were one goal away from going out until Leon Goretzka's leveller in Munich, which meant the other game also ended 2-2.

The FDA on Wednesday said it will add a warning about rare cases of heart inflammation in teens and young adults to fact sheets for the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines – but that the benefits greatly outweigh the risks - and are still recommending the vaccine for all Americans over 12 years old.CDC advisory groups found the risk of the heart condition in adolescents and young adults is likely linked to the mRNA vaccines… And that the risk is notably higher after the second dose and in males.Doctors and hospitals have been warned by the CDC to watch for symptoms of myocarditis or pericarditis, and the FDA warning will further raise awareness.But in a Wednesday meeting, advisors said the benefits of the mRNA vaccines appeared to clearly outweigh the risk.In a separate report, the CDC said that the patients with heart inflammation following vaccination generally recover from the symptoms and do well.The cases are extremely rare. Data from the CDC suggests heart inflammation is seen at a rate of about 13 cases per million in the three weeks after the second shot in 12- to 39-year-olds.
