Britain has blamed President Putin’s military for a global cyberattack that cost businesses hundreds of millions of pounds, in an unprecedented public rebuke. Raising tensions between the countries, Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon, the foreign office minister for cybersecurity, accused Russian military intelligence of launching the NotPetya attack last June that crippled government IT systems in Ukraine. The malware spread across 64 other countries, including the UK.
Britain was engaged in a diplomatic row with the United States last night over the fate of two Londoners suspected of being members of the murderous Islamic State cell dubbed “the Beatles”. James Mattis, the US defence secretary, has ruled out sending Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh to Guantanamo Bay, the US internment facility in Cuba, after they were captured in Syria, officials have said. He appears to favour putting foreign Isis fighters on trial in their country of origin.
World Cup fans should be on alert for Russian spies targeting them for information and blackmail operations, a European spy chief has warned. Mikk Marran, head of the Estonian foreign intelligence service, advised fans, footballers and any other foreigners visiting Russia in June and July for the tournament to keep phones, laptops and other electronic devices with them at all times or not to bring them at all.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
