World News is the media jargon for news about events occurring outside of a nation-state, or which pertain to global issues. This is an area of journalism that is distinct from national or regional news, although a distinction is often made between the two in many places.
A large part of the field is covered by the international press, or news agencies. These organizations prepare articles which may be used by any number of other news outlets with relatively little or no modification, and they provide these stories in bulk electronically through wire services (originally by telegraph; today the Internet is usually involved). Individuals, corporations, governments and intelligence agencies frequently subscribe to these services.
A storm lashed the Spanish town of Los Palacios y Villafranca with torrential rain and blinding hail, transforming the sun-baked streets into a scene of chaos. Terrifying videos posted to social media showed cars being mercilessly pelted by the furious Mother Nature, which seemed to show no mercy following weeks of record-breaking temperatures. The town’s residents are just starting to recover after the deluge. In other world news, Volodymyr Zelensky met with leaders of the G7 club of rich democracies in Japan to discuss the situation in eastern Ukraine.
