MANCHESTER, England (AP) — The alleged culprit in a deadly concert bombing was driven by what he saw as unjust treatment of Arabs in Britain, a relative said Thursday, confirming he made a final phone call in which he pleaded: "Forgive me."

LOS ANGELES (AP) — An Uzbek refugee serving 25 years behind bars for a plot to kill U.S. military personnel or civilians has been charged with stabbing the warden at the California federal prison where he was serving his sentence, prosecutors said Thursday.

VIENNA (AP) — An alliance of many of the world's biggest oil-producing nations extended their agreement to cut output for an additional nine months — an effort to support prices that will prove difficult in the face of growing production from the U.S.

BRUSSELS (AP) — Meeting fellow NATO leaders for the first time, President Donald Trump aggressively challenged them Thursday to spend more on their own defense, putting the alliance under exceptional pressure to become tougher, sharper and newly relevant.

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — For Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, winning re-election may have been the easy part. His wide-margin victory over a hard-line rival shows a majority of Iranian voters prefer his promises of greater liberalization at home and deeper engagement with the world.

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — The Latest on the blast that wounded a Greek ex-premier (all times local): 8:10 p.m. Greece's government spokesman has described an explosion that wounded former Prime Minister Lucas Papademos and two others as an attack.

ELLENABAD, India (AP) — To see Manjeet Kaur around her little daughter is to see joy at its purest. The 15-month-old toddles about the sprawling courtyard of her parents' farm, her oily curls tied up in a top knot, her rubber-soled shoes squeaking.

MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Queen Elizabeth II met Thursday with children injured in the Manchester concert bombing, consoling them and pronouncing the attack at an event attended by so many young people "wicked."

MOSCOW (AP) — After repeated jailings, court convictions on dubious charges and an attack that damaged his eye, Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny is hard to unnerve.

MANCHESTER, England (AP) — On the Manchester street they call the "Curry Mile," there are no longer just Indian or Pakistani restaurants.

BRUSSELS (AP) — It sounds strange to characterize the North Atlantic Treaty Organization as a huge gun club, but the comparison can be useful in understanding the world's biggest military alliance.

BRUSSELS (AP) — In his first big tour on the world stage, President Donald Trump is choosing caution over his usual brand of chaos.
