- Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) said on Tuesday it would reduce its workforce by as many as 5,000 full-time positions, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on air traffic in the form of travel restrictions and cancelled fights. The dismissals will be distributed as follows: 1,900 full-time employees in Sweden, 1,300 in Norway and 1,700 in Denmark. “COVID-19 has forced SAS to face a new and unprecedented reality that will reverberate not only in the coming months, but also during the coming years,” SAS CEO Rickard Gustafson said in a press release.

- Senior officials say President Trump “complains almost daily” that the US still has troops in Afghanistan, and that they are at risk for the spread of coronavirus. “His renewed push to withdraw all of them has been spurred by the convergence of his concern that coronavirus poses a force protection issue for thousands of U.S. troops in Afghanistan and his impatience with the halting progress of his peace deal with the Taliban,” the officials said.

- Amazon “abuses its position as an online platform and collects detailed data about merchandise so Amazon can create copycat products under an Amazon brand,” Senator Josh Hawley wrote in a letter he sent to US Attorney General William Barr on Tuesday. The senator demanded a criminal probe of the e-commerce giant, accusing it of engaging in “predatory and exclusionary data practices to build and maintain a monopoly” – a textbook violation of antitrust law.
- Google and Apple have grown so large and powerful they can not only compete with governments, but bend them to their will. Germany was forced on Sunday to scrap its plans for an open-source privacy-prioritizing contact-tracing system (the so-called Pan-European Privacy-Preserving Proximity Tracing platform) after Apple refused to make changes to its iOS operating system that would have allowed public health apps built on the platform to access Bluetooth data from a central server.

- The agencies have shared data from the seized server with law enforcement around the world to assist in identifying and prosecuting customers of the site of child porn. This has resulted in leads sent to 38 countries and yielded arrests of 337 subjects around the world. The operation has resulted in searches of residences and businesses of approximately 92 individuals in the United States. Notably, the operation is responsible for the rescue of at least 23 minor victims residing in the United States, Spain and the United Kingdom, who were being actively abused by the users of the site. In the Washington, D.C.-metropolitan area, the operation has led to the execution of five search warrants and eight arrests of individuals who both conspired with the administrator of the site and were themselves, users of the website. Two users of the Darknet market committed suicide subsequent to the execution of search warrants.
- The Brazilian Supreme Court Monday approved an investigation into whether controversial President Jair Bolsonaro tried to interfere with the country’s federal police.

- German politicians are divided over the direction a bailout package for the ailing national carrier Lufthansa should take. Some believe the government should be represented on the board of the company if it is to provide billions of euros in state aid. Others believe the government should have equity, while some say the airline should be free of political interference so it can compete on the international stage. A consensus will need to form quickly as options for the airline are fast running out. Lufthansa is seeking a bailout of up to 10 billion euros, which it says it needs to carry on. The airline is seeking government aid from Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Belgium.

Tickets will cost approximately €200 and travelers must cover the expenses of both the airline ticket and their travel to the Mohammed V Airport. The tickets can only be purchased online via credit card payment.

Many were carried off with horrific injuries, including extensive external and internal burns from the explosion that sent steam, ash and gases hurtling from the caldera.
