LONDON (AP) – Officials say no decision has been reached yet on whether to postpone planned London concerts by pop singer Ariana Grande.

Representatives of 02 Arena said Wednesday they are in contact with her promoters but haven’t made a final decision. They say a decision will be made shortly.

VATICAN CITY (AP) – The Vatican says after a visit by President Donald Trump that it is hoping for “serene collaboration” with the United States to help migrants and provide health care and education in the U.S. Trump met for about 30 minutes Wednesday morning with Pope Francis and afterward with the Vatican secretary of state.

MANILA, Philippines (AP) – Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte says he’ll consider martial law in other parts of the Philippines “in order to protect the people.” He says “if I think that ISIS has taken a foothold also in Luzon,” the main northern island, “and terrorism is not really far behind, I might declare martial law throughout the country.”

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) – Accidental shootings involving children have tragic similarities, including the difficult question afterward of whether any adult should face charges. An Associated Press-USA TODAY Network investigation found the question is answered haphazardly, with similar accidents often resulting in different outcomes. Prosecutors must decide if punishing adults for leaving firearms within reach of children will serve a greater good or merely inflict more punishment on people already suffering with grief.

BRUSSELS (AP) – NATO is rolling out the red carpet, opening a massive new HQ and repackaging its image for President Donald Trump.

MANCHESTER, England (AP) – British Prime Minister Theresa May says that it is “beyond doubt” that Britain and the city of Manchester have fallen victim to “a callous terrorist attack.” Speaking outside her offices in London, she says: “Although it is not the first time Manchester has suffered in this way, it is the worst attack the city has experienced, and the worst ever to hit the north of England.”

JERUSALEM (AP) – President Donald Trump says Yad Vashem, Israel’s national Holocaust memorial, is a testament to the “unbreakable spirit” of the Jewish people. Speaking after a brief ceremony at the site in Jerusalam, Trump says words can never describe the “bottomless depths” of the evil that led to the killing of 6 million Jews by the Nazis during World War II

JERUSALEM (AP) – President Donald Trump’s brief visit to the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial may prove to be the most explosive stop during a hypersensitive trip to Israel. While Trump touts his Jewish daughter and his strong support for Israel, he has suffered a series of missteps on Jewish issues and appeared cavalier at times about the Holocaust.

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Donald Trump is sending Congress a $4.1 trillion spending plan that relies on faster economic growth and steep cuts in a range of support programs for low-income individuals to balance the government’s books over the next decade. The proposed budget, for the fiscal year that begins Oct. 1, was being delivered to Congress Tuesday. Lawmakers from both parties have said major changes will be needed as the measure moves through Congress.
