Speaking to CNN, witness Mohan Ibn Ibrahim said he was

  inside the mosque when the shooting began and that he heard the gunman “continuously shooting for 10 to 15 minutes.”

  ”It’s a big mosque and there were more than 200 people inside. The gunmen came from the backside. Gunshots wen

t on for a long time. We had to jump the wall to escape. I saw lots of broken glass and bricks on the backside of the mosque,” he said.

  ”I came to the street I saw one person got shot on his chest,” he said, adding that the ambulance and police then arrived on the scene.

  He said that he had a friend in another mosque in the area who told him a gunman had opened fire there as well and five people were dead.

  ”I could not contact two of my friends who are in the mosque as well,” he said.

What we still don’t know about the Ethiopian Airlines Flig

  Investigators are combing through debris at the site where Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crashed on Sunday, attem

pting to make sense of a disaster that claimed 157 lives and left thousands more in grief and shock.

  In the days since the crash, the personal stories of many of those on board have

come to light — highlighting the truly international nature of a tragedy that saw people of 35 different nationalities die.

  The focus on Boeing has also been intense. On Tuesday, the U

K joined several other countries in grounding the company’s newest, big-selling 737 MAX 8 jet o

ver safety concerns. The MAX 8 was also the model involved in October’s Lion Air crash, which killed all 189 people on board.

  But much more about Sunday’s crash remains unclear — including crucial questions over what caused the jet to go down.

osal.hinese investment in US commercial real estate in 2017 plunged an estimated 55 percent from 2016, acc

ording to a report, but participants in the sector still expect Chinese capital to be a factor in the US.

The 2017 China-US Inbound Investment Capital Watch report from real estate comp

He said China’s capital controls will continue to be a f

factor in Chinese outbound investments in 2018. “If you are a company where real estate and property development is your ma

in line of business I think you will have a better chance of getting your foreign investment approved,” he said.

Despite the decline in Chinese investment, the US commercial real estate markets weathered the loss of capi

tal well. Because New York and San Francisco receive two-thirds of every Chinese investment dollar according to the

report, the effect of the falloff was limited, according to Barry Hersh, a real estate professor at New York University.

Overall, China fell to third in total foreign investment in American real estate behind Cana

da and Singapore, according to the report. Bitner said other sources of capital stepped in to fill the void. “Capital fro

m Canada, Singapore, Japan and South Korea is coming into the US market,” he said.

Draft law on foreign firms to ensure fair competition

With the ongoing second session of the 13th National People’s Congress reviewing the draft law on foreign investmen

t over the weekend-the third review in three months-the draft is highly likely to sail through legislative scrutiny and

be signed into law after being submitted to the top legislature for review on Friday.

Once approved, which seems most likely because most of the controversia

l issues have been addressed, the draft foreign investment law will become what many belie

ve to be the most important legislation in China since it entered the World Trade Organization in 2001. It will rep

lace the three existing laws regulating foreign-invested entities now-the Chinese-foreign equity joint ventures law

, Chinese-foreign cooperative joint ventures law, and wholly foreign-owned enterprises law.

More importantly, the draft law represents the “fundamental change” in the country’s approach to foreign invest

ment administration, which will greatly increase “openness, transparency and predictability”.

nd no one outside Mueller’s circle has any idea what his

  report — expected to be delivered to Attorney General William Barr soon — will say about the President’s conduct.

  But Thursday’s events did raise some political and legal questions about the ambition of Mueller’s prosecutors, their tactics whe

n confronted by a skeptical judge and the credibility being placed in Cohen’s deeply damaging testimony against Trump last week.

  In the win-loss calculation that has characterized Trump’s life, the President can extract some advant

age from the surprising courtroom drama. Anything that be spun as a blow to the special counsel will be seized on in Trump’s co

nservative media echo chamber in the campaign to bolster the President’s standing among core GOP voters that is critical to his long-term

viability.Mueller’s team had asked for a 19-25 year jail term for a tax and finance fraud conviction arising from Manafort’s lavi

sh lifestyle as a sharp suited uber-lobbyist who spun his dark arts for pro-Russia politicians in Ukraine.

  That would have sent the 69-year-old Manafort to jail likely for the rest of his life. But the less than four year term shoc

ked many legal observers and sparked looks of astonishment among prosecutors in Judge T.S. Ellis’s courtroom.

  The judge’s leniency does not change the fact of Manafort’s convic

tion by a jury of his peers. A judge in Washington, who has been less well exposed toward Ma

nafort, will sentence him next week in a separate case, in which he has been accused of lying to Mueller and breaching a plea deal.
