A case of 'negligent homicide' is launched after a huge explosion at a chemical plant in Germany left five people dead. Greenpeace 'alarmed' describing the 'possible environmental impact' to us. Wildfires raging in southern Turkey kill six people in what officials say is a 'national disaster'. As Russian athletes keep notching up medals at the Tokyo Olympics, Western media and competitors are increasingly 'seeing red', as they question the team’s 'right to be there'.

Dear readers and commenters,

We have implemented a new engine for our comment section. We hope the transition goes smoothly for all of you. Unfortunately, the comments made before the change have been lost due to a technical problem. We are working on restoring them, and hoping to see you fill up the comment section with new ones. You should still be able to log in to comment using your social-media profiles, but if you signed up under an RT profile before, you are invited to create a new profile with the new commenting system.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and looking forward to your future comments,

RT Team.
