The latest world news from around the globe.
World news is the jargon used in the media to refer to global events and issues, as opposed to local or regional topics of interest. For example, the term world news is used to describe news that is not specifically about a country or region but instead concerns an international topic such as a war. In terms of journalism, the field of world news largely covers stories that are sent by foreign correspondents or – more commonly these days – by global news agencies.
