    1. Ukraine PM announces resignation

    Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk announced his resignation on Monday in the wake of a months-long political crisis that has paralyzed* the government and frozen the release of vital Western aid.

    “Having done everything to ensure stability and make a smooth transition of power possible, I decided to step down from the post of prime minister of Ukraine,” the 41-year-old pro-Western Cabinet chief said in a video address.

    The tough-talking prime minister’s decision came barely two months after he survived a no-confidence vote in his government.

    2. Kerry pays visit to Hiroshima memorial

    John Kerry on Monday became the first U.S. secretary of state to visit Hiroshima’s revered* atomic bomb memorial, calling it a “stark*, harsh*, compelling* reminder” to end the threat of nuclear weapons.

    Kerry, who was accompanied by other G7 foreign ministers, is the highest-ranking U.S. administration official to pay his respects at the site of the World War II bombing — the world’s first nuclear attack.

    His trip came as White House officials said U.S. President Barack Obama is considering a stop in the now-bustling Japanese city late next month around the time of a G7 summit, which is being held in another part of the country.

    3. Brussels bombers ‘wanted to strike Paris’

    The planners behind the March 22 bombings in Brussels that killed 32 people had initially planned to hit France for a second time but struck closer to home as investigators made arrests among key suspects, Belgian prosecutors* said on Sunday.

    Investigations into the November 13 Paris attacks which killed 130 people showed many of the attackers lived in Belgium, including key suspects Salah Abdeslam and Mohamed Abrini who evaded police for four months after November’s killings.

    4. India temple fire kills over 100

    A massive fire swept through a temple in southern India on Sunday, killing more than 100 people and injuring scores more after they gathered to watch an unofficial fireworks display.

    Thousands had packed overnight into the Hindu temple in Kerala state where fireworks appeared to have landed on an unexploded stash*, triggering a blast, in a tragedy Prime Minister Narendra Modi said was “shocking beyond words.”

    Residents described hearing a huge explosion that shattered the windows of their homes some 100 meters away, before racing to look for survivors in the rubble.

    5. Vietnam elects new prime minister

    Vietnam’s parliament approved a new prime minister on Thursday, handing former legislator Nguyen Xuan Phuc the challenge of maintaining the momentum of one of Asia’s fastest-growing economies.

    Phuc rises from deputy prime minister to lead a government committed to overhauling* its troubled state sector and broad reforms under a U.S.-led Trans-Pacific Partnership, a major trade pact covering four-10ths of the global economy.

    The 61-year-old completes the trio* of core leaders of a youthful country hooked on social media, and growing in its awareness of politics and Vietnam’s complex ties with China and the United States.

    6. Brazil’s VP faces impeachment proceedings

    A supreme court judge ordered Brazil’s Congress on April 12 to start impeachment proceedings against Vice President Michel Temer, deepening a political crisis and uncertainty over leadership of Latin America’s largest country.

    Justice Marco Aurelio Mello told the lower house to convene* an impeachment committee to consider putting Temer on trial on charges he helped manipulate budget accounting as part of President Dilma Rousseff’s administration.(SD-Agencies)
