World News

World news is the general term for news that is not national or local. It includes international relations, political developments, and economic stories from around the globe. These events are often covered by the major news agencies. A journalist who specializes in world news is called a correspondent, and may work full-time as a foreign correspondent for a major news organization.

Some schools have reopened and limited garbage collection resumed in parts of Japan’s northcentral region hit by a deadly earthquake. The family of a Canadian woman abducted by the Taliban says her captors have a video recording of her that would be released Monday. Israel’s military claims some gains in its more than three months of bombardment of Gaza, but the Palestinian death toll continues to climb.

WORLD readers and listeners are thoughtful believers who want to competently talk about the news and its impact on our lives. They understand that the truth demands a biblical context and that God is at work, no matter what the headlines say. They are motivated to pray and serve others, led by the Spirit.
