Just two days before a mini summit on the issue in Brussels, Italy's three-week-old populist government dug its heels in on campaign promises to stop the influx of migrants, threatening to seize rescue ships or barring them from its ports. "We cannot take in one more person," hardline Interior Minister Matteo Salvini told the German weekly Der Spiegel.

Is it a glitch in the matrix or is it just another day in the hellscape of this presidency? Trump attempted to address the immigration crisis during livestreamed event on Friday. But he didn't discuss the more than 2,000 immigrant children who have been separated from their families in recent weeks or the last-minute executive order he signed to halt on his own policy. Instead he used it to highlight the families of victims killed by immigrants. The "angel families" are what Trump calls "victims of illegal immigration." They were brought on stage clutching large photos of their loved ones and recounted how they dealt with "permanent separation" after...

In countries where military figures still hold the reins of power through fear, such as Egypt or Thailand, public criticism of the regime comes mainly from abroad. In recent days, for example, the United Nations has accused Venezuela's security forces of hundreds of arbitrary killings. In Pakistan, people are so afraid of speaking against the military or its intelligence services that they often use code, such as tapping one's shoulder to indicate decorative brass or by referring to "the establishment." While the country has a facade of democracy, the top generals keep a tight hold on politics, the media, and dissent.

By Joyce Lee SEOUL (Reuters) - Delegations from North and South Korea agreed on Friday to arrange the first reunions in three years of some of the families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War. The reunions - scheduled for Aug. 20 to Aug. 26 - are an emotive issue, especially for the elderly relatives taking part in tearful meetings after decades of separation - and have taken place from time to time during periods of good ties between the two Koreas. The Red Cross organizations from the two countries will arrange the reunions which will involve about 200 selected people from the two sides, they said in a joint statement after a meeting of delegations.

Buying as many Virginias as possible becomes especially important as more and more potential adversaries procure advanced diesel-electric boats like the Kilo or the even more capable Russian-built Amur.
