World News

world news

World news, also known as international news or foreign coverage, is the news media jargon for news from abroad about a country or global subject. In terms of journalism, this is a distinct field from “national” or “home” news (although there is sometimes a blurry line between the two). It includes the news of wars in other countries and multilateral summits and conferences. The term has been used since the 19th century when innovations in telecommunications made it easier to publish news from around the globe and spread across borders.

The latest news from the world of politics, sports and business.

This week’s top world stories include a deadly attack on a police station in Zakarpattia Oblast, Ukraine, which killed one officer and wounded several others. The war between Israel and Hamas has left only 14 of Gaza’s 36 hospitals operating, as aid deliveries fail to meet soaring demands in the besieged enclave. Meanwhile, a jet-setting former CEO of now-defunct Wirecard has been arrested in Russia on suspicion of spying for Moscow. And scientists warn of the growing threat from tropical, insect-borne disease.
