Joe Biden heads for Saudi Arabia

Joe Biden heads for Saudi Arabia to plead for peace … and a lot more oil

President Joe Biden will discuss energy supply, human rights, and security cooperation in Saudi Arabia on a trip designed to reset the US relationship with a country he once pledged to make a “pariah” on the world stage.

Biden will hold meetings with Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, known as MbS, along with other government officials, a senior Biden administration official told reporters.

The visit will be closely watched for body language and rhetoric. US intelligence concluded that MbS directly approved the 2018 murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, while the crown prince denies having a role in the killing.

Trump's ex dies

Ivana Trump, ex-wife of Donald Trump, dead at 73

Police are investigating if New York socialite Ivana Trump died after falling down stairs in her Upper East Side home.

Ms Trump, the first wife of former US president Donala Trump was found dead in her townhouse on Thursday afternoon (local time).

Police sources say Manhattan paramedics, responding to a call for cardiac arrest, found the 73-year-old unconscious and unresponsive at the bottom of a set of stairs.

She was reportedly late for her regular hairdressing appointment, a day before heading to St Tropez on holiday.

The police are investigating whether Ms Trump fell and, if any fall contributed to her death, the sources said. A medical examiner will determine her cause of death.
