North Korean leader Kim Jong Un joined troops training on a new tank model and drove one himself, state media reported Thursday, as his rivals South Korea and the U.S. wrapped up their annual military exercises. It's the third time Kim was reported to have observed military exercises since the start of the 11-day South Korean-U.S. drills, which he views as rehearsals for an invasion.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, the highest-ranking Jewish elected official in the U.S., on Thursday for the first time called for the Israeli government to hold an election, calling it the "only way" to determine Israel's path forward after its war with Hamas.

Biden praises Schumer's good speech criticizing Netanyahu

President Biden praised Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer's speech that criticized Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, calling it "a good speech," though he declined to elaborate.

Mr. Biden said Friday the White House was given advance notice of Schumer's speech, in which the New York Democrat and highest-ranking Jewish elected official in the U.S. called Netanyahu a "major obstacle to peace" and said he "lost his way by allowing his political survival to take the precedence over the best interests of Israel."

"He has been too willing to tolerate the civilian toll in Gaza, which is pushing support for Israel worldwide to historic lows," Schumer said Thursday in a...more

Vaughan Gething won the Welsh Labour Party leadership contest on Saturday, and is set to become the first Black leader of Wales' semi-autonomous government.

Gething, who is currently Welsh economy minister, narrowly beat Education Minister Jeremy Miles in a race to replace First Minister Mark Drakeford. Drakeford announced late last year he would step down once a replacement was chosen.

Gething, 50, won 51.7% of the votes cast by members of the party and affiliated trade unions, and Miles 48.3%.

The U.S. government said on Saturday that it is arranging a charter flight from Haiti to the U.S. for those with valid passports.

The flight will leave from the Cap-Haitien International Airport, which can only accommodate limited travel amid violence in the country. The State Department instructed citizens and eligible family members interested in traveling to the U.S. to fill out an intake form.

Officials warned that the trip from Port-au-Prince, the country's capital, to...more

Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro on Saturday became his party's official nominee for July's highly anticipated presidential election, which would allow him to stroll into a third consecutive term with no real competition on the horizon.

Not unusual to Venezuela, the election has been plagued with controversy since Maduro's main opponent, María Corina Machado — who swept an opposition coalition's primary election...more

North Korea resumes missile tests days after U.S., South Korea conclude military drills

North Korea fired multiple short-range ballistic missiles toward its eastern waters Monday morning, its neighbors said, days after the end of the South Korean-U.S. military drills that the North views as an invasion rehearsal.

The launches were North Korea's first known missile testing activities in about a month. Outside experts earlier predicted North Korea would extend its run of missile tests and intensify its warlike rhetoric ahead of the U.S. presidential election in November to boost its leverage in future diplomacy.

Japan's Defense Ministry said North Korea fired three missiles, two together at 7:44 a.m. and the other about 37 minutes...more

President Vladimir Putin basked in an election victory that was never in doubt as officials said Monday that he'd won his fifth term with a record number of votes, underlining the Russian leader's total control of the country's political system. After facing only token challengers and harshly suppressing opposition voices, Putin extended his nearly quarter-century rule for six more years.

First flight of Americans from Haiti lands at Miami International Airport to escape chaos

The first flight from Haiti in two weeks landed at Miami International Airport on Sunday afternoon, a source told CBS News Miami.

The Global X charter flight from Cap-Haïtien touched down at 2:30 p.m.

According to a flight attendant, there were 47 passengers on board, all of whom were U.S. citizens escaping the chaos. Passengers say they became aware of the U.S.-sponsored flight through an email and all became aware through the State Department web page.

The State Department later confirmed the flight's arrival and said government officials were helping the passengers with "next steps."

Lawmakers in Gambia will vote Monday on legislation that seeks to repeal a ban on female genital mutilation, or FGM, which would make the West African nation the first country anywhere to make that reversal. The procedure, which also has been called female genital cutting, includes the partial or full removal of external genitalia, often by traditional community practitioners with...more

Small groups of protesters took to the streets in the eastern city of Santiago on Sunday, decrying power outages lasting up to eight hours and food shortages across Cuba.

Videos on social media showed demonstrators on the outskirts of the city, which is about 800 kilometers (500 miles) from Havana.

State media confirmed the protests in Santiago, while the U.S. Embassy in Havana said there were also reports of protests in a number of other provinces across the island. Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel also referred to protests in a social media post, though he did not specify where they...more

The entire population of the war-torn Gaza Strip — some 2.3 million people — is now living through "severe levels of acute food insecurity," U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Tuesday. He spoke amid increasing signs that the U.S. government is losing patience with Israel over its handling of the war with Hamas.

"According to the most respected measure of these things, 100% of the population in Gaza is at severe levels of...more

A South Korean tanker capsized off an island in southwest Japan on Wednesday, authorities said, killing at least eight people on board. One crew member survived, and the fate of two others was unknown.

The Japan Coast Guard said it received a distress call from the chemical tanker Keoyoung Sun, saying that it was tilting while seeking refuge from the weather near Japan's Mutsure Island, about 620 miles from Tokyo in southwest Japan.

A reported bomb threat against the Los Angeles Dodgers' newest star Shohei Ohtani prompted a massive investigation in South Korea as the team prepares for their first game of the season in the Seoul Series.

U.K. authorities probe possible Princess Kate medical record breach as royals slog through photo scandal

A video clip of Catherine, the Princess of Wales, shopping with her husband Prince William, emerged this week but has failed to quash speculation about Kate's health. Interest is so high, it would seem, that it may have led a London clinic worker to break the law in an effort to obtain Kate's personal medical information.

A British newspaper reported Wednesday that at least one person had tried to access Kate's medical records at the private, upmarket London Clinic, where she underwent unspecified abdominal surgery in January.

A government watchdog agency, the Information Commissioner's Office, confirmed that it had "received a...more

Residents rich and poor have never seen a shortage of this severity. While hot weather has shrunk reservoirs, crumbling infrastructure after decades of neglect is also largely to blame.

Iceland's Reykjanes peninsula is experiencing its fourth volcanic eruption since December. And this time, the impact is expected to be more widespread.

The latest eruption broke out on Saturday between southwest Iceland's Mt. Hagafell and Mt. Stóra Skógfell, quickly producing a nearly 2-mile-long fissure and spewing lava. The small local town of Grindavik was once again evacuated, and as of Wednesday,...more

Russia fired 31 ballistic and cruise missiles at Kyiv before dawn Thursday in the first attack on the Ukrainian capital in six weeks, officials said. Air defenses shot down all the incoming missiles, though 13 people including a child were injured by falling wreckage, they said.

Residents of Kyiv were woken up by loud explosions around 5 a.m. as the missiles arrived at roughly the same time from different directions, said Serhii Popko, head of the Kyiv City Administration.

People with Down syndrome have a message for the world: "Assume that I can." An international awareness campaign, launched ahead of World Down Syndrome Day on Thursday, challenges negative biases that people with Down syndrome can face.

A young woman, played by Canadian actress Madison Tevlin, discusses the low expectations others have for people like her — whether it be going out to bars, education or even dating with a disability.

"Your assumption becomes reality," she says in the video. "But hey, if your assumptions become reality, then assume that I can."

Russia and China veto U.S. resolution calling for cease-fire in Gaza as Blinken visits Israel

Russia and China vetoed a U.S.-sponsored resolution at the United Nations Security Council on Friday which would have declared "the imperative of an immediate and sustained cease-fire" in the Israel-Hamas war. Russia's ambassador to the U.N., Vassily Nebenzia, said the draft language did not go far enough, and that the council must "demand" a cease-fire.

The vote came as Secretary of State Antony Blinken arrived in Tel Aviv on Friday on the final stop in his sixth urgent trip to the region since the start of the war in October. He said he would share alternatives to Israel's planned ground assault into the southern Gaza city of Rafah during talks with...more

For the first time, Russia admits it's in a state of war with Ukraine

Russia admitted two years into its invasion of Ukraine on Friday that it was "in a state of war," as it launched a massive wave of missile and drone attacks on its neighbor's territory. The admission marks an escalation in official language used to describe the conflict, which the Kremlin initially referred to as a "special military operation."

Russia fired almost 90 missiles and more than 60 Iranian-designed kamikaze drones, damaging "dozens" of energy facilities, including power stations, in what Ukrainian officials said was an attempt to cripple the country's electricity and heating network.

At least three people were killed and more than 20 injured, according...more

Earth just experienced a severe geomagnetic storm. Here's what that means – and what you can expect.

The planet was just slammed with what government officials dubbed a severe geomagnetic storm, the second-highest level of NOAA's rating system. The event brought "a major disturbance in Earth's magnetic field" that may have impacted infrastructure and made the northern lights visible farther than usual, officials said.

NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Center issued a geomagnetic storm watch on Saturday, saying that a coronal mass ejection was detected and expected to hit the planet late that same day with impacts into Monday. Coronal mass ejections, or CMEs, are when a large cloud of plasma and magnetic field bursts from the sun's corona....more

Netanyahu cancels delegation to U.S. after it abstains from cease-fire vote at U.N.

The U.S. abstained from the vote, which Netanyahu's office said was a "clear retreat from the consistent position of the U.S." since the...more

A U.K. court has ruled that Julian Assange will not be immediately extradited to face charges in the United States, giving the U.S. government three weeks to "offer assurances" that the American justice system will abide by several specific tenets in its handling of the WikiLeaks founder's case.

The British court said Assange "has a real prospect of success on 3 of the 9 grounds of appeal" he has argued. Specifically, the court demanded that U.S. justice officials...more

The grim assessment came as the U.N.'s top envoy for human rights in the Palestinian territories said there were "reasonable grounds to believe that the threshold indicating...more
