NIAGARA FALLS, Ont.—Four Canada-U.S. border crossings were closed temporarily on Nov. 22 after a vehicle explosion at the U.S. side of the Rainbow Bridge checkpoint at Niagara Falls. The incident left two people dead.
New York Gov. Kathy Hochul said there was no evidence that the incident was terrorism-related. “Based on what we know at this moment, there is no sign of terrorist activity in this crash,” she said at a press conference on the afternoon of Nov. 22.
The deal to exchange a pause in the Gaza war for the release of some 98 women and children has been delayed by a day and is now expected to go into effect on Friday due to a last-minute complication. Hezbollah is not included in the deal and cross-border violence on Israel’s North does not impact it.
The contentious deal that the government approved at 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday, the 47th day of the war, could allow for all 40 of the children and 58 of the women whom Hamas has held since it seized over 239 captives during its infiltration of southern Israel on October 7 to be released.
Lebanon’s Iran-backed Hezbollah terror group said early Thursday that five of its fighters, including the son of a senior lawmaker, had been killed, amid skirmishes at the Israel-Lebanon border since the Israel-Hamas war began.
Abbas Raad, son of the head of Hezbollah’s parliamentary bloc Mohammed Raad, was “martyred on the road to Jerusalem”, the group said in a statement — the phrase it has been using to announce the death of its members due to Israeli fire since the war started on October 7.
The Mossad has been instructed to act against Hamas leaders wherever they are, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told reporters on Wednesday night as he defended a partial hostage deal that includes a four- to nine-day pause in the Gaza war.
“It was a hard decision, but the right decision,” Netanyahu said regarding the deal.
“The hope of the Dutch people is that they will get their country back,” Wilders said following an exit poll published by state broadcaster NOS.
In his post-election speech, Wilders called for a coalition which would include the liberal VVD, which was until recently led by outgoing Prime Minister Mark Rutte.
In the meantime, I’ve had many people ask me precisely what this is. So here is the explanation as I understand it.
Central to the idea is that society does not require an entrenched entity of legalized compulsion and coercion called the state in order to enjoy the enforcement of property rights, contracts, defense, and commercial society generally. The fusing of the terms anarchism and capitalism is not a plan for the social order but rather a prediction of what would happen in a civilized community in the absence of the state.
NATO regards Russia as the biggest threat in Europe and is preparing for a major conflict, Czech President Petr Pavel said on Wednesday, reiterating that Central European nations would continue to stand by Kiev in its fight with Moscow.
Speaking at a summit of the Visegrad Group, an informal political club which includes the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary and Slovakia, Pavel noted that he did not have the impression that his counterparts had a diametrically opposing view on the Ukraine conflict.
The European Union must not put Ukraine’s accession bid in the “fast lane” while delaying applications from the Western Balkans, Austrian Foreign Minister Alexander Schallenberg has said.
He also called for an overhaul of the EU’s entire enlargement procedure, warning that Kiev may never be admitted to the bloc without such reform.
North Korea has withdrawn from a 2018 deal designed to reduce military tensions with Seoul, vowing to deploy additional forces to the demilitarized zone (DMZ) after the South said it would rescind a no-fly zone previously agreed upon for the area.
In a statement issued by the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on Thursday, North Korea’s Defense Ministry said it would scrap the military deal in response to “extreme confrontational frenzy” by Seoul, which had condemned the launch of a new reconnaissance satellite by the DPRK military earlier this week.
The idea of a technical default — essentially delaying interest payments for a few days — has gained backing from a growing number of mainstream Republicans who see it as a price worth paying if it forces the White House to slash spending, Reuters reported on Tuesday.
A Scythian envoy arrived at the Persian camp carrying a bird; a mouse; a frog; and five arrows. And then he left, in a rush.
Wily Darius interpreted the message as the Scythians ready to submit to the Persians.
As the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) intensify their aggressive campaign in the Darfur region of western Sudan, there is growing concern among experts about the potential for a situation akin to the ongoing political turmoil in Libya. The reference to a “Libyan scenario” points to Libya’s protracted political crisis, where two rival governments—one based in the western part of the country and the other in the east—are locked in a struggle for power. This comparison raises alarms about the stability and future of Sudan.
“Even in the unlikely event of something going wrong at UBS, we have enough cushion before even speaking about a resolution of the bank and its very unlikely risk of a loss for the taxpayer,” Sergio Ermotti said.
Would UBS need to be rescued, Ermotti said a private buyer would continue to be preferable.

Don’t bother explaining the science, just use religious and military leaders to get people vaccinated President of the European Research Council says
World Economic Forum agenda contributor, Maria Leptin believes governments shouldn’t use science to persuade their citizens into taking experimental mRNA injections. Instead, all that’s needed is to co-opt the “religious establishment” to manipulate people’s behaviour or for a better result, get an Army General to convince the population that the country is at war.
Ahead of OpenAI CEO Sam Altman’s four days in exile, several staff researchers sent the board of directors a letter warning of a powerful artificial intelligence discovery that they said could threaten humanity, two people familiar with the matter told Reuters.
The previously unreported letter and AI algorithm was a catalyst that caused the board to oust Altman, the poster child of generative AI, the two sources said.
