The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, stood before missile remnants that she claimed were covered in Iranian “fingerprints” on Thursday while laying out what she called “irrefutable evidence” that Tehran has violated its international obligations by militarily supporting rebels in Yemen. The missile was reportedly launched at Saudi Arabia last month from an area of Yemen that is controlled by Houthi rebels, an Iranian-backed Shiite group that took control of large swathes of Yemen in 2014. Haley accused Iran of supplying the weaponry, and in doing so, defying a U.N. resolution that endorsed the Iran nuclear deal.

Jay Carney tweeted on Thursday about the panic that ensued at the White House on Dec. 14, 2012, after news broke about the attack, in which a shooter gunned down 20 children and six adults at the Newtown, Connecticut, elementary school. "5 years ago today was my worst day at the White House," he wrote.

Life for Ryland Ward has been a series of small victories and extended periods of waiting since he was shot in last month’s massacre in Sutherland Springs, Texas. The 5-year-old boy was shot five times when a gunman opened fire on the congregation at First Baptist Church on Nov. 5, killing 26, including Ryland’s stepmother, JoAnne Ward, and two sisters. Ryland has remained in the hospital ever since, waiting for the day doctors say he is clear to return home.
The Kentucky lawmaker's resume included enough material for an award-winning memoir: He was a peacekeeper at the Rodney King riots in Los Angeles, a White House chaplain to three presidents and a 9/11 first responder who gave last rites to hundreds of people at Ground Zero. The story tore down his claims and portrayed him as a con man whose deceptions propped up his ministry of a church of outcasts in Louisville and hid a sinister secret: a sexual assault allegation from a 17-year-old girl. The death of the 57-year-old jolted Republican leaders, who were already struggling with a sexual harassment scandal that toppled the state's first GOP House speaker in nearly 100 years plus three other Republican committee chairmen.
China sidestepped blame Friday for the beating of a South Korean photojournalist by Chinese security, an incident that has marred a visit by the South Korean president to mend frayed ties with Beijing. The incident has sparked outrage in South Korea, with the opposition calling on Moon to cancel the rest of his four-day state visit, his first in China since taking office in May. A photographer was thrown to the floor and kicked, reportedly suffering fractured facial bones and ruptured vessels in an eye, as Chinese security personnel stopped South Korean photographers following Moon's delegation at a trade show on Thursday.

American F-22 fighter jets have fired warning flares in Syrian airspace after Russian Su-25 jets entered an agreed upon deconfliction area, according to a US official. The official told Reuters that the Russian jets left the area, which was above the Euphrates river, after the two US jets sent the warnings. One official said that the aerial encounter lasted "several minutes", as the Russian jets crossed the de-confliction line several times.
FCC Chairman Ajit Pai is whipping out the memes in a last-minute effort to stir up support for his much-maligned repeal of net neutrality. Pai stars in a bizarre video released Wednesday, which features the former Verizon lawyer waving fidget spinners and lightsabers as he argues that his plan is totally cool, dude. It could very well be harder for the next HBO or next Instagram to start up, for one, if net neutrality protections that ensure that all internet content is treated equally are essentially erased.
Goat cheese, roasted garlic and honey are a holy triumvirate in the food world ― you’ve got creamy, tangy, salty, sweet, sticky and gooey all together in harmony. Here’s how you make it: Line a quart-size bowl with cheesecloth, and then spoon in layers of goat cheese and roasted garlic paste (more on that below). Chill it in the refrigerator overnight, and then unmold it to reveal a magical beehive-shaped cheese dish that’s the perfect dip for crackers.

Zimbabwe's new President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Thursday called for the removal of Western sanctions on his government during a speech to ruling party officials and said elections due in 2018 were nearer than "you expect". Mnangagwa, 75, became leader of the southern African nation last month after the military and ruling ZANU-PF turned against Robert Mugabe who had ruled the country for 37 years and was seen grooming his wife Grace to succeed him. While the European Union removed sanctions on ZANU-PF officials, members of the military and some government-owned firms in 2014, the United States has kept a travel and economic embargo on several ruling party elites.
The man accused of driving into a crowd protesting a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville faces a new charge of first-degree murder after a court hearing Thursday in which prosecutors presented surveillance video and other evidence against him.

Four Palestinians were killed and hundreds wounded Friday in violence with Israeli forces across the Palestinian territories, as tens of thousands of people joined new protests against Washington's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. US President Donald Trump's December 6 announcement that he would break with decades of American policy and move his embassy to Jerusalem has stirred international condemnation, as well as protests across the Palestinian territories and Arab world.
Health officials are increasingly concerned about the continuous uptick of Legionnaires’ disease cases, which have risen steadily since 2000. While the waterborne bacterial disease is relatively rare ― with 6,238 cases nationwide so far this year ― there has been a 13.6 percent increase in cases since this time last year. “A person acquires Legionnaires’ disease from mist,”Julien Martinez, assistant press secretary at the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, told HuffPost in October.

Senate and House Republicans have struck a tentative deal on a tax plan as they race to get a final measure on President Donald Trump’s desk by Christmas. At the same time, Democrats are urging Republicans to delay the process until a newly-elected Democratic senator from Alabama, Doug Jones, is seated - currently expected not to be until after the Senate wraps up its work for the year. In a stunning upset on Tuesday, Mr Jones defeated his Republican opponent Roy Moore in a special election, flipping control of the seat and reducing the Republican Senate margin to 51-49.
China is looking to increase its air tanker fleet after its fighter jets, bombers and surveillance aircraft conducted an “island encirclement patrol” of Taiwan earlier this week. As the People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) extends exercises in the Western Pacific, refueling will become a problem for its strike aircraft. The People’s Daily has already confirmed that the PLA’s Northern Theater Command will organize war-games to prepare pilots for more aerial refueling missions.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has cooked up a response to "piegate.” It all began on Thanksgiving when she tweeted that she made chocolate pecan pie, which looked more than perfect. “I don't
