TURNBERRY, Scotland (AP) — Presidential contender Donald Trump arrived at his Turnberry golf resort in western Scotland on Thursday for the first day of the Women's British Open, declaring "the world has asked me to be here."
By Sui-Lee Wee BEIJING (Reuters) - Dissident Chinese artist Ai Weiwei said on Thursday that Britain had denied his application for a six-month visa in favour of one with a shorter duration, telling him that he had not declared a previous "criminal conviction". The denial of a longer visa comes three months before President Xi Jinping visits Britain and could fuel criticism of Prime Minister David Cameron's government, which has been accused of putting trade before human rights in dealing with China. Ai has never been charged or convicted of a crime.
