The U.S. plans to work closely with Israel's new government, Secretary of State Antony Blinken told a left-leaning Jewish group in Washington on Sunday, and continues to support a two-state solution to end the decades-long conflict with Palestinians. The U.S. administration expects "the new Israeli Government to continue to work with us to advance our shared values, just as we have previous governments," Blinken told the nonprofit J Street liberal advocacy group. "Security assistance to Israel is sacrosanct," Blinken said, noting the more than $3 billion the U.S. provides to Israel in foreign military funding.

NEW YORK (Reuters) -Jurors in the Trump Organization's tax fraud trial started deliberating on Monday, following four weeks of testimony about executive pay practices at Donald Trump's real estate company that prosecutors said amounted to a criminal scheme that went on for at least 15 years. Its longtime chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, pleaded guilty and testified for the prosecution. Trump, who last month announced a third run for the presidency in 2024, was not charged in the case.
DOHA, Qatar (AP) — American success in the men's World Cup remains a dream. The U.S. team looked better this year, but the results were the same as in 2010 and 2014. The Americans were eliminated in the round of 16 following a 3-1 defeat to the Netherlands on Saturday. “We’ve shown that we can compete with top-tier teams and we just want to change the narrative because we think, obviously, over the past years we haven’t gotten enough respect for U.S. soccer and for the way that we play,” midfiel

MOSCOW (AP) — Russian President Vladimir Putin tried to boost Russian morale Monday by driving a vehicle across a bridge to Crimea that a truck bomb had damaged in October. Putin took the wheel of a Mercedes to drive across the bridge that links Russia’s mainland with the Crimean Peninsula, which Moscow annexed from Ukraine in 2014. Like other Western automakers, Mercedes halted sales of vehicles to Russia and stopped production at its assembly plant near Moscow after the start of Russia's milit
KHARTOUM, Sudan (AP) — Sudan’s coup leaders and the main pro-democracy group signed a deal Monday to establish a civilian-led transitional government following the military takeover last year. But key players refused to participate, and no deadline was set for the transition to begin. The framework — signed by Gen. Abdel-Fattah Burhan, Gen. Mohammed Hamdan Dagalo and the leaders of the Forces for the Declaration of Freedom and Change — appears to offer only the broadest outlines for how the coun

DOHA, Qatar (AP) — France defender Jules Kounde was told by a match official to remove two gold chains he was wearing during the defending World Cup champions' game against Poland. Kounde had the chains on until the 41st minute — on clear display up to that point in Sunday's match — when referee Jesus Valenzuela instructed Kounde to take them off. A France assistant called Kounde to the sideline and unhooked the clasps from behind his neck then returned to the dugout. After France defeated Polan
The Vancouver Park Board has voted to remove a dedicated cycling lane through Stanley Park — at least for the time being. On Monday, city park board commissioners voted 6-1 for a motion to scrap the temporary bike lane that has been in place since 2020, while asking to staff to come up with a permanent cycling infrastructure plan for the downtown park expected by spring. "We brought this motion forward because we were worried about equitable access," said park board commissioner Angela Haer, who
AL KHOR, Qatar (AP) — As captain, Aliou Cisse led Senegal to victory over the defending World Cup champions and all the way to the quarterfinals, matching Africa's best run in its first appearance at the tournament. As coach, Cisse is finding the World Cup much, much tougher. The current African champions lost to England 3-0 on Sunday in a surprisingly lopsided result and were knocked out in the last 16. Senegal had arrived with high hopes of at least matching that quarterfinal run of two decade

Since September, the thefts in the Fredericton and Oromocto areas have amounted to more than $1.4 million in losses suffered by households, businesses and government departments, the RCMP said in a news release.
