French lawmakers have approved a bill giving the intelligence services extensive new powers aimed at preventing terrorist attacks. Security officials will be able to order surveillance without the approval of a judge, relying, instead, on a newly created suprvisory body. Civil rights groups and some politicians have criticized the law. Hugh Scotfield reports from Paris.

“All speakers in the debate recognized that France faces an exceptional threat from terrorism at this time. For the government backed by the opposition UMP that means that intelligence agencies need to be given a proper legal framework in which to act. But opponents say that precisely because the threat of France is so acute, it's wrong to legislate in haste, and they say what the January attacks in Paris showed was not a lack of surveillance on mass rather than need for a better targeted intelligence of individuals.”

The United States has authorized commercial ferry services to Cuba for the first time in more than 50 years, several companies in Florida said they have been given licenses to operate passenger ferries to Havana, and services could begin within weeks. Will Grant is in Cuba.

“Since the decision to reestablish diplomatic ties with Havana was announced by Washington in December. There's been a noticeble surge in the number of Americans visiting Cuba, now they have one more way to get here. The move doesn't necessarily mean that boats will start launching for Cuban shores straight away as there are other bureaucratic hurdles to overcome in both countries. But it is a further indication of Washington's desire to put the policies of isolating Cuba in the past and begin a new era of cooperation.”

Houthi rebels in Yemen have fired shells and rockets into a Saudi Arabian town across the border for the first time since the Saudi's launched an air campaign against them. Yemeni tribal leaders said that two Saudis were killed in the attack on Najran but Saudi officials haven't confirmed this, buildings were demaged, schools were closed and flights concelled to the area after the attack. The border area has seen regular exchanges of fires since March when the Saudi-led campaign began.

Dozens of migrants are reported to have drowned in the lastest disaster to strike people trying to reach Europe from Africa by boat. The aid group Save The Children said up to 40 people died when their rubber dinghy deflated in the Mediterranean on Sunday, about 100 survivors were rescued by a container ship and taken to Sicily. Astoy Fall Dia from Senegal was on the dinghy.

“It was a little boat, it failed and exploded boom. There was a big ship there and they threw down ropes. Someone grabbed onto the ropes, all the other people started pushing to try to save themselves but then people started falling in the water. An estimated 7,000 migrants have made the crossing in recent days, a surge prompted by good weather and calm seas.”
