New Mexico is going after the federal government for failing to make progress on cleaning up contamination left behind by decades of bomb-making and nuclear research at one of the nation’s premier labs as concerns mount over plans to resume production of key components for the U.S. nuclear arsenal. In a civil complaint filed in state district court Wednesday, New Mexico environment officials say a plan by the U.S. Energy Department lacks substantive and appropriate targets for dealing with waste at Los Alamos National Laboratory. The consent order between New Mexico and federal government has been renegotiated over the years, with the latest iteration taking effect in 2016 despite criticism from nuclear watchdog groups and environmentalists about unclear milestones and a lack of consequences for falling short.

Venezuela's pretrial cell blocks in 2020 were overcrowded at a level amounting to triple their capacity, a rights group warned on Thursday, criticizing unsanitary conditions in the facilities due to underfunding in the crisis-stricken country.

Scotland prop Zander Fagerson's four-match suspension has been upheld but he could play in their final Six Nations game following a change in the matches he is banned for.

His appeal against the sending-off and length of suspension was rejected, Six Nations organisers said on Thursday, but the committee agreed with Fagerson’s argument that the two matches of his club Glasgow Warriors played on the weekends without any Six Nations games should count towards his ban.
