World news is a broad category of reporting that covers stories about events occurring outside the borders of a particular country, state or region. It includes reports on international political and military affairs, environmental disasters, humanitarian crises, economic turmoil and other issues of global importance. It also includes coverage of the activities of major multinational organizations, such as the United Nations and NATO.
There are two types of reporters who specialize in world news: foreign correspondents and stringers. A foreign correspondent is a full-time reporter for a newspaper, magazine or other media outlet who covers a specific country or region. A foreign correspondent usually stays in contact with other reporters and journalists on the ground and often files stories based on information from local government officials, community leaders, politicians and members of the public.
