Did you miss the news of this early morning? We have concocted a recap 'to help you see more clearly.

It's a sad epilogue. The body found in the wreck of the Piper Malibu is indeed that of Emiliano Sala, announced the British police this Thursday evening. "The body brought back today was formally identified by the Dorset Medical Examiner as that of Emiliano Sala. The families of Mr Sala and pilot David Ibbotson have been informed, "writes the Dorset police. The carcass of the single-engine Piper Malibu, which was carrying the 28-year-old former Nantes striker, and his 59-year-old pilot, had been located on Sunday, some 20 kilometers north of the Anglo-Norman island of Guernsey, resting at 67.7 meters deep.

This big "boom", heard from Compiègne to the Aisne over an area of ​​several tens of kilometers, stirred Twitter Thursday night. But according to the prefecture of Oise, the "strong detonation" heard in the east of the department around 21:55 is likely due to "military aircraft that has passed the wall of sound at that time." "The detonation was felt in a large part of the department and even to the neighboring department of the Aisne", but "no factory has exploded" and "the inhabitants can now be reassured," also said the firefighters of Oise, contacted by AFP. Phew!

This is an additional damning element against the Crown Prince. Mohammed bin Salmane said in 2017 that he would go so far as to use "a bullet" against journalist Jamal Khashoggi if he did not stop his criticism against the kingdom, says Thursday the New York Times. The conversation was intercepted by the US intelligence services, who are in the process of combing through several years of telephone and text messages from the prince, the newspaper said. Donald Trump must say Friday at the latest to the US Congress which he considers responsible for the murder of Jamal Khashoggi.
