Polish farmers protesting against European Union regulations and cheap food imports from Ukraine blocked the A2 highway at a border crossing with Germany on Monday. Farmers across Europe have been protesting for weeks against constraints placed on them by European Union measures to tackle climate change, as well as rising costs and what they say is unfair competition from outside the EU, particularly Ukraine.

British Antarctic Survey scientists have shared the first images and video from their new Windracers drone as they test the new ULTRA uncrewed aerial vehicle (UAV) over the southern continent’s icy wastes. Over the last few weeks the UAV has flown over 720kms collecting images and scientific data that could enable researchers to widen the range of research they do and understand how Antarctica is being affected by climate change. Designed for extreme environments like Antarctica, the Windracers ULTRA is capable of carrying 100 kg of cargo or sensors up to 1000 km. During this season’s testing phase, the Windracers ULTRA will assess the marine food chain, investigate tectonic structures with magnetic and gravity sensors assess ice sheet structures using airborne radar, and test an atmospheric turbulence probe. Scientists believe the aircraft will prove vital on assessing the impact of climate change on the ice that covers the Earth’s southernmost continent.
The Greek government on Monday approved the country's participation in a European Union naval mission in the Red Sea to protect merchant ships from attacks by Yemen's Iran-backed Houthi militia, a government spokesman said.

Greece's security council approved a proposal by Defence Minister Nikos Dendias for participation in the EU mission, government spokesman Pavlos Marinakis said in a statement.
Thameslink, Southern and Gatwick Express are affected by the problem.

STORY: Speaking at the opening of the U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva, Guterres said the U.N. Security Council often found itself deadlocked and "unable to act on the most significant peace and security issues of our time".He said that the Council was lacking “unity on Russia's invasion of Ukraine, and on Israel's military operations in Gaza” and that it needs “serious reform to its composition and working methods.”The United States last week again vetoed a draft U.N. Security Council resolution blocking a demand for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in Israel's offensive against Gaza.The flow of aid entering Gaza from Egypt has dwindled, and a collapse in security has made it increasingly difficult to distribute the food that does get through, according to U.N. data and officials.
