Nato: Cyber-attack on one nation is attack on all Image copyright Getty Images Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg says all 29 member countries would respond to a serious cyber-attack on one of them. Writing in Prospect Magazine, he said such an incident would trigger a "collective defence commitment", known as Article 5 of its founding treaty. Article 5 has not been triggered since the 9/11 terror attacks on the US in 2001. Nato's members include the US, Canada and many European countries. "We have designated cyber-space a domain in which Nato will operate and defend itself as effectively as it does in the air, on land, and at sea," he wrote in his article.
Johnson Blames Iran For Saudi Arabia Oil Attacks Image copyright PA Media Prime Minister Boris Johnson has blamed Iran for attacks on Saudi Arabian oil facilities ahead of a meeting with the country's president, Hassan Rouhani.

Parliament suspension sparks furious backlash Media playback is unsupported on your device The prime minister's decision to suspend Parliament has prompted an angry backlash from MPs and opponents of a no-deal Brexit. It sparked protests across the country, a legal challenge and a petition with more than a million signatures. The government said the five-week suspension in September and October will still allow time to debate Brexit. But critics said it was an "undemocratic" attempt to stop MPs from blocking no deal. Cabinet minister Michael Gove told the BBC the suspension, which was approved by the Queen on Wednesday, was "certainly not" a political move to obstruct opposition to the UK leaving the EU without a deal.

Apple 'sorry' that workers listened to Siri voice recordings Apple has apologised following revelations that it paid third-party workers to listen to voice recordings of Siri users. The practice known as "grading" has been used by several tech firms as a way of improving the quality of speech recognition. However, Apple, Google and Microsoft all halted such work recently, following public outcry. Apple said it plans to resume grading - but only for Siri users who opt in. The firm added that in the future only its own employees will be able to access recordings, not third-party workers at contracted firms. Earlier this month, the company said it had halted grading following reports that workers had heard recordings containing intimate remarks made by Siri users.
