        The search for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 will be suspended rather than shut down if the plane is not found in the current search area, officials say.China, Malaysia and Australia had previously agreed to end the search in the southern Indian Ocean if no "credible new information" was found. The plane, with 239 passengers and crew, disappeared in March 2014.Many of their relatives have long pleaded with authorities for the search to continue until the plane is found.The announcement came after a meeting of ministers from the three countries in Malaysia in which they acknowledged that with less than 10,000 square kilometres of the search area remaining "the likelihood of finding the aircraft is fading".
   
       
Almost 180m Australian dollars ($135m, £101m) has been spent on the search so far, making it the most expensive in aviation history.MH370: What we know
Debris gives new clues to disappearance

               
               
               
               
               
           
           
        The search, led by Australia, has been using underwater drones and sonar equipment to scour a 120,000 sq km search zone in the southern Indian Ocean where the plane is presumed to have crashed. Nothing related to MH370 has been found in the area.However a few pieces of debris confirmed to be from a Boeing 777 have washed up on various islands thousands of miles from the search zone. MH370 is the only missing Boeing 777 in the world.                                                                                                    "In the absence of new credible evidence, Malaysia, Australia and China have collectively agreed to suspend the search upon completion of the 120,000-km search," Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said at a news conference held after the meeting."I must emphasise that this does mean we are giving up on the search for MH370," he added.There is little detail about the circumstances under which a search might be resumed.More than 110,000 sq km of the seafloor has already been searched, but poor weather caused delays to the search operation in recent weeks, the Joint Agency Coordination Centre (JACC) said earlier this month.Initially expected to be complete by July or August of this year, the JACC said the search could take longer if there is more bad weather or equipment failure.

                    Chancellor Philip Hammond was in the front row (bottom left) of finance officials at the G20 meeting
               
            The UK's vote to leave the European Union heightens risks for the world economy, finance chiefs have said at the end of the G20 summit in China.The outcome of last month's referendum "adds to the uncertainty" for the global economy, the group of the world's 20 largest economies said."In the future, we hope to see the UK as a close partner of the EU," it said.Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond revealed the subject had come up "a great deal" at the two-day talks. "The reality is there will be a measure of uncertainty continuing right up to the conclusion of our negotiations with the EU," he told reporters.
   
       
Following the meeting in the Chinese city of Chengdu, the G20 group said it was well placed to actively cope with the potential economic and financial impact from the Brexit vote.

                    Philip Hammond spoke of "uncertainty" until Brexit negotiations have finished
               
            Other factors complicating the world economy include geopolitical conflicts, terrorism and refugee flows, according to the G20.ImproveThe president of Germany's central bank, Jens Weidmann, said there were no signs yet that economic development in Europe had been affected by the UK's referendum result.                                                                                                    The G20 agreed that despite the Brexit vote the global economy would improve in 2016 and 2017, Mr Weidmann said.Separately, G20 policymakers said they recognised that excess steel supply was a global issue. The excess capacity of steel has had a negative impact on trade and workers and requires a collective response, they said.

            An organiser of a pool party where a man was shot dead has described the "frightening chaos" that unfolded.Summerlyn Farquharson told how the crowd got "unruly" in the early hours and said people started running as gunshots were heard.A 34-year-old man was found with a gunshot wound at the house in Headley, Surrey on Monday. Two men remain in custody.Ms Farquharson denied the event was a "sex party".
We don't know why it happened, we have no clue...Summerlyn Farquharson, Party organiser
She said she had rented the house, next to a village church, for the past four years and had hosted similar parties there twice before with no trouble.
   
       
More than 400 people were at the party when it turned to "chaos".Ms Farquharson, who uses the title The Female Boss Krissy, said: "Before the shooting everything was nice and then it was chaos.""At about two o'clock the crowd was getting unruly, I am not sure if it was the alcohol but by the time I got to the security I heard a gunshot, I saw people running, people were trying to get into the house.                                                                                                     "People weren't allowed in the house as it was a pool party but they were banging on the door."

        A charity has trained its counsellors to help parents who fear their children are being radicalised. The NSPCC said its existing support line could now advise parents worried about extremists grooming a child.It said counsellors had been trained to spot warning signs such as children isolating themselves or "talking as if from a scripted speech".Recent terror attacks "highlighted the growing problem of individuals being influenced by extremism", it added.The charity said it had already started getting calls to its free, 24-hour helpline from people worried about the problem.  
   
       
'Became aggressive'One caller told counsellors: "I'm concerned that someone is trying to force a young boy into having extreme beliefs. He has started acting differently recently and has become more withdrawn."Another caller said: "I'm worried about a child I know."I fear that they may start holding extremist beliefs because I've heard her saying some worrying things.                                                                                                    "She's also showing changes in behaviour and appears to be more aggressive towards her parents."I'm not sure how to approach this as I know the family well... I don't think staying silent is an option in the current climate."The training for NSPCC counsellors explains how extremist recruiters "befriend vulnerable targets, feed them ideologies and - in the worst-case scenario - persuade them to commit terrorist attacks".The charity said potential targets often had low self-esteem, were members of gangs, or were victims of bullying or discrimination.Radicals tell them they can be "part of something special, and brainwash them into cutting themselves off from their friends and family", it added.According to the charity, signs which may "hint at a child being radicalised" include children:Isolating themselves from family and friends
Talking as if from a scripted speech
Showing increased levels of anger
Becoming disrespectful and asking inappropriate questions.
'I felt like a traitor'

        One teenage girl from east London described how she became drawn into long intense discussions on the internet which led her to want to run away to Syria."I saw so much violence that it seemed to lose its effect," she said. "Everything merged into one. I can't believe I'm saying that now."My primary reason to want to go to Syria was to join Islamic State. I believed this was the best way to be a good Muslim."I believed the West were responsible for the suffering of Muslims particularly in Gaza where innocent people and especially children were killed. I felt a traitor to my faith."It was easy to maintain this divide between my real life and my online life as no-one knew me in real life."Although I ended up trying to go to Syria - and it doesn't get more real than that - I also think that perhaps in my head there was a distinction between things happening with IS and things happening here."NSPCC chief executive Peter Wanless said: "The fact that a young person might hold extreme or radical views is not a safeguarding issue in itself."But when young people are groomed for extremist purposes and encouraged to commit acts that could hurt themselves or others, then it becomes abuse."The charity's counsellors can also advise parents on how to talk to children who are anxious about terrorism or upset by recent attacks, such as those in France and Germany.The helpline number is 0808 800 5000.

        Lloyds has ramped-up its job-cutting scheme, axing a further 3,000 roles, even as it reported a 101% increase in pre-tax profits.The bank also doubled its planned branch closures, with 200 more set to vanish from the UK's high-streets by the end of 2017. The cuts are in addition to the 9,000 job and 200 branch closures Lloyds announced in 2014.Lloyds reported a £2.5bn pre-tax profit for the half year to the end of June.In the same period last year, it made £1.2bn.
   
       
The rise was largely due to a sharp drop-off in payment protection insurance (PPI) compensation payouts, which dented previous profits.PPI has cost the bank more than £16bn since 2011.Lenders are expecting the scheme to be wrapped up soon.Brexit effect                                                                                                    Underlying profits at Lloyds Banking Group fell by 5%, and chief executive Antonio Horta-Osorio warned that he expects a "deceleration of growth" following the UK's decision to leave the EU.The Group said the increased cost-cutting was as a result of the change in how people do their banking, and due to the chances of interest-rates staying low in the wake of Brexit.But Mr Horta-Osorio emphasised that Lloyds was in a "strong position to withstand the uncertainty" created by the vote.Almost 10% of Lloyds is still owned by the British taxpayer.Lloyds shares fell almost 4% in early trading.Laith Khalaf, analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown, said that despite Lloyds' attempt to set out its stall as a "multi-channel bank", the reality is that "demand for banking services is moving online, and so banks must follow where their customers lead, and ultimately that doesn't bode well for high street branches".He added that while the Brexit vote had hit Lloyds, "it remains a strong bank", and the impact of the vote will probably be felt most by shareholders, who may receive less cash this year.Rob MacGregor, the national officer for Unite, which represents some Lloyds staff, called the job cuts a "further body blow to the UK economy"."These are permanent jobs that are being lost," he said. "As a country, we can't afford to lose these jobs in a challenging post-Brexit world."

        Should we mourn 200 more lost bank branches? Do we need them when, collectively, we logged into banking apps 11 million times a day last year? "Customers love the new technology," says Anthony Browne, of the British Bankers' Association.Try telling that to millions of people who do not, or cannot, access the internet.Try telling that to the small business owner who wants to cash in money daily, but lives in one of 1,500 communities (according to campaigners) that no longer have a single bank branch.All this is being thrashed out in an independent review of an agreement aimed at minimising the impact of bank closures. There is a strong case for each side, and no easy solution.

    Media captionPope Francis walked alone through the Arbeit Macht Frei gates, into the Auschwitz death camp The Pope has offered a private prayer at the former Auschwitz death camp. He walked alone and in silence around the concentration and extermination camp where 1.1 million people, mostly Jews, were killed during World War Two in Nazi-occupied Poland.Pope Francis also met elderly survivors of the camp, kissing them on the cheeks and speaking to them softly.He is on his third day of a visit marking 1,050 years since Poland's adoption of Christianity.Francis has become the third Pope to walk through the main gate of Auschwitz, under its infamous inscription "Arbeit Macht Frei" - work sets you free.
   
       
But unlike his German and Polish predecessors, he is not speaking about the horrors that occurred there, says the BBC's Adam Easton in Warsaw.

                    The Pope spent much of his visit to the camp in solitary prayer and contemplation
               
            Francis passed under the gates alone, wearing white robes and skullcap. After meeting the survivors, he placed a candle at the Death Wall, where prisoners were executed by the Nazis, before continuing on his own.The Pope stopped to pray at the prison cell of Maximilian Kolbe, a beatified Polish Catholic friar who sacrificed his life to save that of another man.                                                                                                    He knelt for many minutes in the underground cell, illuminated only by the light from a tiny window, the Associated Press news agency reports.The Argentine Pope is on a five-day trip to Poland.During a World Youth Day rally in the southern city of Krakow on Thursday, he urged compassion for migrants.He told hundreds of thousands of people that "a merciful heart opens up to welcome refugees and migrants" - a statement that puts him at odds with Poland's anti-immigrant right-wing government.
