Burkina links Ivory Coast jihadist with hotel attack in capital

A jihadist accused of masterminding a deadly attack in Ivory Coast is also suspected of having planned a major assault in Burkina Faso's capital last year, a senior official said Friday.

South Koreans to raise sunken ferry if test of lift goes well

By Heekyong Yang SEOUL (Reuters) - Salvage experts in South Korea prepared on Wednesday to begin raising a ferry that sank nearly three years ago, killing 304 people, most of them children on a school trip, finally meeting the demands of mourning families.

Trump plans 28 percent cut in budget for diplomacy, foreign aid

By Arshad Mohammed WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump's proposed 28 percent budget cut for U.S. diplomacy and foreign aid next year would preserve $3.1 billion in security aid to Israel but reduce funding for the United Nations, climate change and cultural exchange programs. The budget proposal for the fiscal year beginning on Oct. 1 is a first shot in a battle with Congress - which controls the government purse strings - that will play out over months and may yield spending far beyond Trump's requests. Congress, controlled by Trump's fellow Republicans, may reject some or many of the proposed cuts to the U.S. State Department and Agency for International Development (USAID)...

As VentureBeat notes, this can't technically be considering a delay since the phones haven't actually been announced yet, but with all of the leaks and rumors that backed up the April 21st date, it seems likely that Samsung has decided to adjust its release timing slightly with just weeks to go until the reveal event. The source didn't provide any specific reasoning behind the internal delay,...
