Dominic Raab co-hosts a press conference with his Dutch counterpart Dilan Yesilgoz-Zegerius, saying it is a "powerful" moment to bring countries together and support the ICC. This comes after the Hague issued an arrest warrant on Friday for President Putin over his alleged war crimes in Ukraine. The justice secretary says we need to "deal with Russian aggression" and goes on to say that China should tell Russia to "adhere to international law" as the Chinese President visits Russia today.

Finland has once again topped the World Happiness Report which was released this morning, and measures social support, income, health, freedom, generosity and the absence of corruption to determine a country's national happiness. Finland has topped the list for a sixth year in a row, followed by Denmark, Iceland, Israel, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Luxembourg and New Zealand. According to the report, India ranks at 125th position out of 136 countries, making it one of the least happy countries in the world. It even lags behind its neighbouring nations like Nepal, China, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. At the very bottom of the list is Afghanistan at 137th position.

Scientists Warn Critical Parts, of 'Doomsday Glacier', Melting Faster Than Expected.
Mashable reports that recent research suggests
that the Florida-sized Thwaites Glacier has
the potential to affect the entire world. .
The massive formation holds
a colossal amount of ice that could
raise global sea levels by over two feet. .
In addition to this, its collapse due to a warming
climate could unleash even more ice from neighboring
glaciers, triggering further sea level rise.
Since the 1990s, the Antarctic glacier
has retreated nearly nine miles as it
continues to destabilize.
The trajectory of its melting in the coming decades and
centuries has the potential to submerge coastal cities
and other populated areas around the world.
Thwaites is the one spot in Antarctica
that has the potential to dump an
enormous amount of water into
the ocean over the next decades, Sridhar Anandakrishnan, professor of glaciology
at Penn State University, via Mashable.
Mashable reports that , the Thwaites glacier has been dubbed , the "Doomsday Glacier.".
According to the latest 2023 research,
beneath the ice shelf lies critical points
which hold back many other colossal glaciers. .
The most recent research, published in 'Nature,'
found that Thwaites is melting faster than expected
in cracks directly below that floating ice shelf.
Scientists suggest that warmer water
seeping into natural cracks has amplified
the melting at these specific weak points.

On Wednesday, two papers published in Nature journal revealed that scientists studying Antarctica's vast Thwaites Glacier, which is also known as the Doomsday Glacier, informed that warm water is seeping into its weak spots. As a result, the melting caused by rising temperatures is worsening.

Temperatures in parts of the Arctic were six degrees or more above average in February. Researchers are observing that the ice is thinning rapidly - and models predict that ice-free Arctic summers are on the horizon. In this special edition Climate Now reports from a -24C freezer in Tromsø, Norway.

Mrs Chatterjee vs Norway, Rani Mukerji's new film, is a horrific account of how an Indian mother battles the whole legal system and administration of a foreign nation - Norway - to reclaim her children. Sagarika Bhattacharya's genuine tale inspired the film. The film has received positive reviews, with special acclaim for Rani's performance.Nevertheless, Norway's Ambassador to India, Hans Jacob Frydenlund, has taken issue with the film, claiming that it portrays a 'completely false' narrative about his nation and contains 'factual inaccuracies'.
