If Nyusi’s estimated death toll is confirmed, Tropical Cyclon

  clone Idai would be the deadliest tropical cyclone on record to have hit southern Africa.

  Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said there was no power in Beira and surr

ounding areas, and nearly all communication lines had been destroyed.

  ”Main roads leading into Beira have been cut off, buildings have been submerged and se

verely damaged, and all business has been shut down,” said the aid agency, adding that “medical acti

vities in Beira hospital, in local health centers, and throughout the community have ceased completely.”

  Though the cyclone hit Mozambique on Thursday, the extent of

the damage has taken days to come into focus due in part to the country’s poor infrastructure.

  The scale of #CycloneIdai in Beira, Mozambique, is truly heartbreaking. Initial assessments from @ifrc estimate at le

ast 90% of the area is completely destroyed. Read what IFRC aid workers are witnessing in the ar

India’s richest man put his brother out of business. Now he’s

  India’s richest man just helped his cash-strapped younger brother avoid months in prison by paying off debts worth tens of millions of dollars.

  The gesture by Mukesh Ambani to bail out his brother, Anil, is the latest twist in a sibling saga that has gripped India’s t

elecommunications industry. A price war started by Mukesh in 2016 nearly put Anil out of business a year later.

  Last month, India’s top court ordered Anil Ambani and his company, Reliance Communications, to pay a 5.5 billion rupe

es ($80 million) debt to Swedish mobile firm Ericsson (ERIC) by Wednesday or face three months in jail.

  By Monday, the deadline was looming and the debt remained unpaid. Then Mukesh Ambani, who’s estimated to be worth more than $50 billion, stepped in.

  Reliance Communications said in a statement late Monday that it had made the paym

ent to Ericsson in full, with Anil Ambani thanking his brother and sister-in-law for their help.

In the end, they divided up Reliance’s array of business

  es that cover industries such as energy, retail and financial services. But their fortunes have gone in vastly different directions since then.

  Mukesh Ambani’s fortune tops $54 billion, while his younger brother has dropped out

of the billionaires club and is now worth only $300 million, according to Bloomberg.

  In his statement on Monday, Anil Ambani said the siblings have now put their differences behind them.

  ”I and my family are grateful we have moved beyond the past, and are deeply grateful and touched with this gesture,” he said.

  The US Securities and Exchange Commission has rejected Elon Musk’s claims that the regulator is unfairly trying to silence him.

  In a filing Monday, the SEC said it was “stunning” that the bi

llionaire business leader had continued to fire off tweets about Tesla without consulting others

at the company despite having agreed to a court-ordered settlement requiring him to do so.

  The filing is the latest salvo in a protracted battle between

the SEC and Musk, who has been outspoken in his criticism of the securities regulator.

Still, they are just the tip of the cat economy iceberg. Medi

care, theme parks, pet boarding services are expanding the sector.

The Spring Festival holiday in February was a peak period for such services as more pet ow

ners tended to make use of luxury pet hotels as ordinary boarding kennels were overbooked.

Beijing-based Liu Ronghuan, 35, a college teacher, said she was quite satisfied with the pet hotel she chose for her cat.

It offered fancy services like massages, beauty salons, and pet portrait photos. The s

even-day stay cost Liu about 5,000 yuan, almost the same price as a three-star hotel room.

“Compared with the price, I cared more about whe

ther my cat was having an enjoyable time during the family reunion time,” Liu said.

Demonization of Huawei will prove to be a political farce

China’s Palace Museum signed an agreement on Friday with Huawei Technologies Co Ltd to promote the use of its 5G telecommunications technology. With

the new generation telecoms technology, the Forbidden City, which is the tourist site that welcomes the largest nu

mber of visitors in the world each year, will definitely provide state-of-the-art services.

Supported by the much faster mobile network, the museum will likely be digitalized to such

an extent that visitors thousands of miles away may be able to explore it in virtual reality. And those visi

ting it in person will be able to learn about the treasures it houses in greater detail with the aid of digital technology.

In the past 20 years since the museum started to facilitate its work with digital technology, a lot

of information about the cultural relics it preserves has been provided on its app, and multiple dig

italized ways have been employed for visitors to have a more rewarding experience.

If they don’t talk to us, we’re going to do something that’s

  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 in

ject an appeal to his base — in this case on a signature issue, trade — into almost every political situation.

  Trump vs. Congress

  Trump also launched a mini-campaign rally, seizing on the Senate vote undoing his emergency declaration, to spell

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 sens

e that he is being persecuted unfairly — that helps him identify with voters who feel neglected by political elites.

We don’t know” what Kim will decide to do in the future and

  that any decision to resume such testing may “very much be his decision, and his decision alone,” Biegun said. He also noted that Trump has “made clear” how disap

pointed he would be if testing resumed. A senior US defense official told CNN Monday that the commercial sate

llite imagery doesn’t show anything that raises imminent alarm for the US at this time.

  North Korea acknowledged for the first time last Friday that the Hanoi summit ended “unexp

ectedly without an agreement.” Despite previously painting the Trump-Kim summit in Vietnam in a posi

tive light, state news agency KCNA said the meeting hadn’t gone as well as expected.

  The US had hoped the summit would demonstrate the success of Trump’s diplomatic gamble with North Korea, but instead

the meeting ended with no joint agreement, after Kim demanded all US sanctions be lifted on his country.

  ”Sometimes you have to walk,” Trump said during a news conference followin

g the conclusion of the talks, which broke up earlier than planned. “This was just one of those times.”

  CNN’s Jamie Crawford and Barbara Starr contributed to this report.
