This weekend, 196 countries signed an agreement to attempt to stop global warming rising above a 2C level by the end of the century.

The deal, hailed by Barack Obama as "the best chance we have to save the one planet we have", however, was criticised by climate scientists and activists who said it did not go far enough in trying to stop climate change.

Greenpeace International director, Kumi Naidoo, said that "emission targets are not big enough. The nations that cause this problem have promised too little help to those people who are already losing their lives and livelihoods."

A Russian warship fired on a Turkish fishing boat in the Aegean sea this weekend.

"Small arms were fired" from the Russian frigate Smetlivy at a Turkish fishing boat that was about to collide with the ship, Russia's defence ministry said on Sunday.

The fishing boat came within 500 metres of the frigate before shots were fired and then "the Turkish vessel drastically changed course", Russia said.

Turkey had still not responded to the incident by Sunday evening, but the country's foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Friday, before the incident, that Ankara's patience with Moscow was "not unlimited".

In a separate attack on Sunday, a child and three people were killed when rebel mortar fire struck a suburb of Damascus.

A passenger in a passing car spotted the man pleasuring himself and got his phone out to film the incident.

"I cannot believe my eyes," the man videoing says, "let's catch this cunt and expose him", he adds.
