COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday accused the West of sabotaging Russia-built natural gas pipelines under the Baltic Sea to Germany, a charge vehemently denied by the United States and its allies. Nordic nations said the undersea blasts that damaged the pipelines this week and have led to huge methane leaks involved several hundred pounds of explosives. The claim by Putin came ahead of an emergency meeting Friday at the U.N. Security Council in New York on the

ZAPORIZHZHIA, Ukraine (Reuters) -A defiant Vladimir Putin proclaimed Russia's annexation of a swathe of Ukraine in a pomp-filled Kremlin ceremony, promising Moscow would triumph in its "special military operation" even as he faced a potentially serious new military reversal. The proclamation of Russian rule over 15% of Ukraine - the biggest annexation in Europe since World War Two - was roundly rejected by Ukraine and Western countries as illegal. The United States, Britain and Canada announced new sanctions.
HAVANA (AP) — Ivette Garrido hurried last week to get the 6 kilograms (13 pounds) of subsidized chicken allotted to her family by Cuba’s government and put it in the freezer, happy to have meat to get through Hurricane Ian.

The government has not said what percentage of the population r
BEIJING (AP) — While China's top leaders commemorated revolutionary martyrs Friday, far fewer Chinese are expected to be traveling during the upcoming “Golden Week” National Day holidays amid rigid anti-COVID-19 restrictions and calls from health officials for people to stay put. China’s transport ministry estimates some 210 million trips will be made by road during the week-long holiday that begins Saturday — down 30% compared to the same time last year. China remains the only major country tha
The City of Saint John is vicariously liable for the harm a former police officer caused when he sexually assaulted multiple children decades ago while he was a city employee, a judge has ruled. Vicariously liable is when one party is deemed liable for the actions or inaction of another party, based on the nature of their relationship. The city is not, however, vicariously liable in the class-action lawsuit for the "physical, mental and/or sexual harm perpetrated" by Kenneth Estabrooks between 1

Rose Blanche fisherman Hedley King says it's almost impossible to put a dollar figure on what he lost to post-tropical storm Fiona, but he knows the road to rebuilding will be a long one. One thing's for sure, though: the costs are adding up. "Anywhere up to $100,000, for sure," he said Tuesday. "You start sizing up and you're going to rebuild one of those, you know the price of material now.… It's not going to be cheap."

MONTREAL — Despite his widely denounced comments about immigrants, Quebec Immigration Minister Jean Boulet could keep a seat in cabinet if the Coalition Avenir Québec is re-elected Monday, leader François Legault said Thursday. Boulet, who is also the province's labour minister, said last week at a candidates debate that most immigrants to Quebec "don't work, don't speak French or don't adhere to the values of Quebec society." While Legault has said that Boulet's comments disqualify him from rem
Two far-right U.S. politicians who want to upend the way votes are cast and counted are tied or leading in races to become the top election administrators in their states, according to recent polls. Republicans Jim Marchant of Nevada and Mark Finchem of Arizona promote wild conspiracy theories about how the 2020 election was stolen from Donald Trump. A victory in November could allow them, as secretaries of state, to restrict voting access or seek to block certification of results in these two critical battlegrounds for presidential elections.
