Hello! Here’s what you need to know on Monday.

1. US president Donald Trump is terrified of the investigation into his relationship with Russia. He has reportedly been having a meltdown about former FBI director Robert Mueller ever since the special counsel was appointed on May 17.

2. Government websites in the US state of Ohio have been hacked to display a pro-IS message which reads: President Donald Trump would be held accountable for “every drop of blood flowing in Muslim countries” and ended “I love Islamic State”.

3. The Brexit secretary is “pretty sure” that he can negotiate a free trade deal when the UK leaves the EU. He also said he is prepared “to walk away” if the UK was given a “punishment deal.”

4. A Pakistan fuel tanker inferno kills at least 150 people. Villagers had gathered, reportedly to collect fuel leaking from the crashed tanker, when it caught fire near the Pakistani city of Ahmedpur East.

5. Terrorism is likely to get much worse before it gets better. According to researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, religious ideologies, access to materials that can be “weaponised” and ease of communications, along with the massing of targets, are all moving in the wrong direction.

6. SpaceX has successfully completed two rocket launches and landings. A SpaceX rocket carried 10 communications satellites into orbit from California on Sunday, two days after the company successfully launched a satellite from Florida.

7. The Great Barrier Reef is worth $56 billion (£33bn; $US42bn), according to a new report by Deloitte. That’s equivalent of 12 Sydney Opera Houses. It’s the first time the full economic, social and iconic brand value of the World Heritage site has been calculated.

8. Japanese car parts maker Takata has filed for bankruptcy protection in the US and Japan as it faces billions of dollars of liabilities over its defective airbags linked to at least 17 deaths worldwide. It was the biggest safety recall in automotive history.

9. Mosul celebrated its first Muslim Eid holiday without ISIS in years on Sunday after the militants were ejected from much of the city. Eid prayers had been allowed under Islamic State rule but festivities were not.

10. At least six people have died after a passenger boat sank in Colombia and another 16 are still missing. The four-deck vessel went down in a reservoir near the popular resort town of Guatapé. There were about 170 people aboard.
