Ambulance officials say crews remain on scene as firefighters continue to battle the blaze in the 27-story building. It is not clear if people are trapped inside. Hours after the fire broke out, a plume of smoke can be seen from miles away.

Amazon aterriza en Nueva York

Jeff Bezos decía ayer en la junta general de accionistas de Amazon que no estaba dispuesto a dormirse en los laureles. La ironía es que el fundador del portal de comercio electrónico, que empezó vendiendo libros por Internet, estrena su primera librería física en Nueva York en el mismo espacio que ocupaba la quebrada Borders, una de las primeras víctimas de la disrupción digital. Los datos son críticos en su concepto.

La librería abre al público este jueves en el centro comercial del rascacielos del conglomerado de medios Time Warner, en Columbus Circle, donde también hay tiendas de marcas como Coach, H&M o Michael Kors. La maniobra, por tanto, es la más importante de las realizadas hasta la fecha por Amazon, que está en proceso de experimentar también con supermercados (FUENTE: El País).

Atentado en Manchester

Police have named a Manchester-born son of Libyan immigrants as the suicide bomber responsible for the terror attack at an Ariana Grande concert that left at least 22 people dead.

The man, Salman Abedi, lived less than six kilometres from Manchester Arena, where he detonated a home made explosive shortly after 10.30pm local time as crowds passed through the foyer at the end of the concert.

Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Ian Hopkins identified the bomber at a media conference Wednesday morning (AEST), but declined to provide any further details saying a coroner was yet to officially identified him.
