Trump says will raise election meddling with Putin in Helsinki meeting

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday he would raise the issue of alleged Russian meddling in U.S. elections during his planned meeting with President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki next month. Speaking to reporters aboard Air Force One on his way to New Jersey, Trump also said he would discuss the conflicts in Syria and Ukraine and other international issues with Putin during the July 16 summit. After Trump and Putin met briefly in Vietnam in November 2017, Trump was criticized in the United States for saying he believed Putin when he denied Russian meddling.

Explainer: What will it cost to denuclearize North Korea?

At a summit in Singapore in early June with U.S. President Donald Trump, North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un pledged to "work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

Assuming denuclearization of North Korea does take place, what would it look like and how much would it cost?

General Electric breaks off health care to focus on power, aviation

Once-dominant industrial giant General Electric announced Tuesday it will shed its health care and oil services businesses to concentrate on power, aviation and wind turbines in the latest attempt to shore up the struggling company. GE chief executive John Flannery hailed the new plan as a rebirth for the firm, which he said would slash debts and stabilize the balance sheet to produce a leaner, more focused enterprise. GE shares rallied on the announcement, although some analysts rued the effect of divesting health care, a stable source of cash and earnings.

US tells Syria rebels not to expect help against army assault

The United States has warned rebels in southern Syria that they should not expect military intervention if government troops launch an assault against them, a rebel commander told AFP Sunday. Russian-backed government forces are preparing an offensive to retake Syria's southern provinces of Daraa and Sweida, still mostly held by rebels who had been backed by the US for years. The US warning, contained in an Arabic-language message seen by AFP, came as Syrian troops this week stepped up air strikes on the southern provinces.

Russian jets struck an opposition held town in southwest Syria on Sunday, opposition sources said, in the first air cover provided by Moscow to an expanding Syrian army offensive to recapture the strategic area bordering Jordan and the Israeli occupied Golan Heights. Two tracking centers that monitor military aircraft movements recorded at least twenty strikes on Busra al Harir, northeast of Deraa, a city in Syria, two sources told Reuters. "We have tracked a sortie of 5 Russian jets that performed 25 raids," said one source saying the war jets had set off from Russia's Hmeimim air base in the western coastal province of Latakia in Syria.

Netflix sacked its chief spokesman Jonathan Friedland, he revealed on Friday, after he used the N-word twice in the space of a few days during meetings with staff. The head of communications announced his departure after being upbraided for a second time for using the racial slur, which is controversial for its ubiquity in hip-hop culture and completely taboo in almost every other context. Former journalist Friedland -- not to be confused with Jonathan Freedland, a prominent columnist at the London-based Guardian newspaper -- had served in communications roles for Disney.

Mystery extinct ape discovered in ancient Chinese imperial tomb 

An entirely new species of ape has been discovered buried in an ancient tomb in central China. The remains of the now-extinct gibbon, which researchers have named Junzi imperialis, were found in a burial chamber in Shaanxi Province that dates back around 2,300 years. Researchers believe it may be the first ape species to have perished as a direct result of human activities such as hunting. "All of the world's apes - chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans and gibbons - are threatened with extinction today due to human activities, but no ape species were thought to have become extinct as a result of historic hunting or habitat loss," note scientists at the Zoological Society of London, who led...
