  • Floyd's trial & Biden infrastructure plan, Easter Covid, Mozambique, Italy spy row

    It is hard to be clinical and cool-headed when the evidence is so disturbing. The opening of the trial in Minneapolis of the police officer accused in the murder of 46-year old George Floyd. The jury on opening day shown that nine-minute video of Derek Chauvin keeping his foot on the handcuffed victim's neck. From witnesses to experts and loved ones, each day wrought with emotion - like Thursday when Floyd's girlfriend Courteney Ross took the stand - the same emotion that sparked worldwide outrage last May and the question of why it is not an open and shut case.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
