    1.Venezuela opposition takes congress

    Venezuela’s opposition took majority control of the National Assembly on January 5 after years in the political wilderness*, setting the stage for a potential power struggle with embattled* President Nicolas Maduro.

    Opposition lawmakers wearing caps in the red, yellow and blue national colors crossed a line of police guards as they arrived for a tense swearing-in* ceremony at the National Assembly.

    2. Rancher leader wants land transfer

    A leader of the small, armed group that is occupying a remote national wildlife preserve in Oregon, the United States, said on January 5 that they will go home when a plan is in place to turn over management of federal lands to locals.

    Ammon Bundy told reporters at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge that ranchers*, loggers* and farmers should have control of federal land — a common refrain* in a decades-long fight over public lands in the West.

    “It is our goal to get the logger back to logging, the rancher back to ranching,” said the son of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who was involved in a high-profile 2014 standoff* with the government over grazing* rights.

    3. Mexico drug kingpin back in jail

    Betrayed by his desire to make a biopic*, Mexican drug kingpin* Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman was back on Saturday in the prison he escaped from six months ago, amid calls to extradite* him to the United States.

    The world’s most-wanted drug baron* was arrested in a military raid early on Friday that left five suspects dead in Los Mochis, a coastal city in his native northwestern state of Sinaloa.

    Hours later, the Sinaloa cartel kingpin was flown in a military helicopter from Mexico City to the Altiplano maximum-security prison, the scene of his daring July 11 escape some 90 kilometers west of the capital.

    4. Iran accuses Saudis of bombing embassy

    Iran on Thursday said Saudi warplanes had attacked its embassy in Yemen’s capital, a development that would exacerbate* tensions between the major Shi’ite and Sunni powers in the region, and Riyadh said it would investigate the accusation.

    “This deliberate action by Saudi Arabia is a violation of all international conventions that protect diplomatic missions,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Hossein Jaber Ansari was quoted as saying by state television news channel IRIB.

    5. Spain’s princess on trial

    Spain’s Princess Cristina and her husband went on trial on Monday under intense global media scrutiny* in a landmark corruption case that has outraged the country and sullied* the monarchy’s* reputation.

    Cristina, a 50-year-old mother of four with a master’s degree from New York University, is the first Spanish royal to face criminal charges in court since the monarchy was reinstated* following the 1975 death of dictator General Francisco Franco.

    The trial of the princess and the 17 other accused, including her husband, former Olympic handball medalist Inaki Urdangarin, got underway at 9:20 a.m. at a makeshift* courtroom in Palma on the island of Mallorca, where the Spanish royals have a holiday home.

    6. 20 dead in bus crash in Mexico

    Mexican officials said on Sunday 20 people died when a bus plunged off a bridge and fell into a deep gorge.

    The head of the civil defense office in the Gulf coast state of Veracruz said the accident killed 20 of the 45 people on board. Yolanda Gutierrez said the bus was apparently carrying members of a soccer team when it skidded* off a bridge on Sunday near the city of Cordoba.

    The Veracruz state government said the bus was likely speeding, and the driver lost control when it went over a speed bump. (SD-Agencies)
