The financial results, released late on Sunday, reported net profits rising to 1.97bn Qatari riyals ($541m) for the 2017 financial year through end-March. Revenues rose 10 per cent to Qr38.9bn in 2017.

In a New Year’s Day address, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un claimed that the North was in the “final stages” of developing an ICBM.
U.S. President Donald Trump has vowed that a launch of a long-range missile by Pyongyang “won’t happen” on his watch.
