After the freshman Minnesota congresswoman outraged both Democrats and Republicans with an anti-Semitic tweet about AIPAC buying congressional support with "the Benjamins," Pelosi acted quickly.She set up a private meeting with Omar, following which the freshman issued a contrite-sounding apology saying that she had no idea that her comments were anti-Semitic.

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump said Thursday he takes North Korean leader Kim Jong Un "at his word" that Kim was unaware of the alleged mistreatment of an American college student who died after being imprisoned there.
There is growing anticipation in North Korea that Kim Jong-un will be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, fanned by reports in state-run media and mandatory lectures at schools, offices and factories across the country. Suggestions that the North Korean dictator might be in line for the award initially emerged after Mr Kim met US President Donald Trump for their first summit, in Singapore in June, but have stepped up ahead of the two leaders' meetings this week in Hanoi.

Ureña (Venezuela) (AFP) - Edinson Cisneros gasped and wheezed as he tried to talk -- he was one of the protesters struck by rubber buckshot fired by Venezuelan security forces breaking up border demos demanding the entry of emergency aid from Colombia. The main crossing points on the Colombian border became flashpoints for unrest Saturday as Venezuelan security struggled with twin tasks: keeping Venezuelans from leaving to get aid stockpiled in Colombia, and stopping people crossing the border with aid packages. Cisneros, 24, was in a large crowd that tried to reach the Francisco de Paula Santander border bridge, the crossing point that links Urena, Venezuela with Cucuta, Colombia.
Pope Francis on Sunday vowed to tackle every single case of sexual abuse by priests in the Roman Catholic Church, comparing paedophilia to "human sacrifice". The Pope pledged to confront abusers with "the wrath of God," end the cover-ups by their superiors and prioritize the victims of this "brazen, aggressive and destructive evil." But his public address to the Church's top bishops at the end of a landmark summit in the Vatican on tackling clerical assault of minors threatened to disappoint victims. "If in the Church there should emerge even a single case of abuse - which already in itself represents an atrocity - that case will be faced with the utmost...
