China has provided North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his family with an experimental coronavirus vaccine, a U.S. analyst said on Tuesday (1 December). Citing two unidentified Japanese intelligence sources, Harry Kazianis, a North Korea expert at the U.S. think tank Center for the National Interest, said the Kims and several senior North Korean officials had been vaccinated within the last 2-3 weeks. He added that it was unclear which company had supplied its drug candidate to the Kims and whether it had proven to be safe. Citing a U.S. medical scientist, Kazianis also said at least three Chinese companies were developing a coronavirus vaccine, including Sinovac, CanSinoBio and Sinopharm. Sinopharm says its candidate has been used by nearly one million people in China. But none of the firms are known to have publicly launched late-stage clinical trials of their experimental COVID-19 drugs. However, other experts have expressed doubt that Kim would use an experimental vaccine. North Korea has not confirmed any coronavirus infections, but South Korea's National Intelligence Service has said an outbreak there can't be ruled out. North Korea had trade and people-to-people exchanges with China, where COVID-19 first broke out, before shutting its border in late January. Microsoft said in November two North Korean hacking groups had tried to break into the network of vaccine developers in multiple countries, without specifying the companies targeted. Sources told Reuters they included British drugmaker AstraZeneca. South Korea said last week it had foiled the North's attempts to hack into its own COVID-19 vaccine makers.

A new agreement between Britain and France to increase patrols and technology to try and stop illegal migration across the Channel comes into force on Tuesday. The deal, signed Saturday by interior minister Gérald Darmanin and his British counterpart Priti Patel, doubles the number of officers patrolling a 150-km stretch of France’s coastline which is targeted by people-smuggling networks.It also increases surveillance technology such as drones, radar equipment and cameras to detect people who risk their lives trying to cross the 30-km stretch of water.The agreement represented a step forward in the two countries' “shared mission to make Channel crossings unviable”, Patel said in a statement."Thanks to more police patrols on French beaches and enhanced intelligence sharing between our security and law enforcement agencies, we are already seeing fewer migrants leaving French beaches," she said.More than €31m investedA growing number of migrants have tried to reach Britain across the perilous and busy shipping lane in recent months. Four people died doing so in 2019 and seven so far this year.Last weekend, French patrol boats rescued 45 migrants, including a pregnant woman and children apparently suffering from hypothermia, trying to cross over to Britain.As part of the deal, Britain "has pledged to make an additional financial investment of €31.4 million to support France's major efforts against illegal crossings," the French interior ministry said in a statement issued Sunday.The ministry also said it would review results over the next six months to "assess the effectiveness and impact of these additional measures".Tired of playing border patrolSeveral charities, including rights group Amnesty International, have criticised the deal.In the UK Detention Action said it amount to “rearranging the deckchairs on the Titanic”.Damien Careme, a French MEP with the Green party and former mayor of Grande Synthé near Calais said the money would be better spent elsewhere.“I would prefer us to invest rather than enriching security companies, with equipment, drones, radars and so on because that’s what it is, a market of migration: several hundreds of millions of euros spent every year."In 2016, Careme helped set up a refugee camp in Grande Synthé which met the minimum UN humanitarian standards. He said the deal wouldn't achieve its purpose. "It’s a permanent case of one-upmanship which doesn’t deliver because we see that [these crossings] continue,” he said. He also asked: “How much longer are we going to play the role of border patrol with a country that’s leaving Europe?"Deadly crossingsThe issue of controlling illegal crossings between France and the UK has long been a source of tension between the two countries.In September, French authorities said they had intercepted more than 1,300 people trying to reach Britain, including a handful who had attempted to swim the 30-odd kilometres across the English Channel.Around 6,200 attempted the crossing between January 1 and the end of August, with inflatable boats, paddleboards, kayaks or even life jackets to keep them afloat.Northern France has long been a magnet for people seeking to smuggle themselves to Britain in small boats or in one of the thousands of trucks and cars that cross over daily on ferries and trains.A recent report by Gisti, a legal service for asylum seekers in France, chronicled nearly 300 border-related deaths in and around the English Channel since 1999.The report “Deadly Crossings and the militarisation of Britain’s borders” described the evolution of border security in and around the Dover Strait as a “history of death” .It claimed that responses to the migrant crisis, under successive French and UK governments, have become increasingly militarised, forcing people to resort to more dangerous routes.(with newswires)

Germany's partial lockdown to contain a second wave of coronavirus infections slowed growth in the manufacturing sector in November but export-oriented companies remained optimistic thanks to strong demand from abroad, a survey showed on Tuesday. IHS Markit's final Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) for manufacturing, which accounts for about a fifth of the German economy, fell to 57.8 in October from the 2-1/2 year high of 58.2 reached in the previous month. The survey showed the goods-producing sector was not completely immune to the renewed lockdown measures, as closures in hospitality had a knock-on effect on consumer goods production in particular, IHS Markit economist Phil Smith said.

Euro zone factory growth cooled last month as renewed coronavirus lockdown measures hurt demand, according to a survey which showed Germany remained the driving force behind the bloc's manufacturing recovery. IHS Markit's final Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) fell to 53.8 in November from October's 54.8 but was ahead of the 53.6 flash estimate.
