    1. Norway happiest country in the world

    Norway displaced* Denmark as the world’s happiest country in a new report released on Monday that called on nations to build social trust and equality to improve the wellbeing of their citizens.

    The Nordic* nations are the most content, according to the World Happiness Report 2017 produced by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), a global initiative launched by the United Nations in 2012.

    Countries in sub-Saharan Africa, along with Syria and Yemen, are the least happy of the 155 countries ranked in the fifth annual report released at the United Nations.

    2. Trump hits Germany on NATO

    U.S. President Do-nald Trump said on Saturday in a tweet that he had a “great” meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, dismissing as “fake news” reports about a difficult first visit, while continuing to criticize the country for its limited support of NATO.

    “Despite what you have heard from the FAKE NEWS, I had a GREAT meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel,” Trump said in a two-part tweet. “Nevertheless, Germany owes vast sums of money to NATO & the United States must be paid more for the powerful, and very expensive, defense it provides to Germany!”

    3. El Nino in Peru unleashes downpours

    A sudden and abnormal warming of Pacific waters off Peru has unleashed* the deadliest downpours in decades, with landslides and raging rivers sweeping away people, clogging* highways and destroying crops.

    At least 72 people have died and more than 70,000 have become homeless as Peru’s rainy season has delivered 10 times more rainfall than usual, authorities said on Saturday. About half of Peru has been declared in emergency to expedite resources to the hardest hit areas, mostly in the north where rainfall has broken records in several districts.

    4. 20 killed in accident at tourist spot

    Up to 20 people have been killed and many more injured by a fallen tree in a freak* accident in Ghana.

    Crowds of students and tourists were swimming at the popular Kintampo waterfalls, the highest waterfall in the country, when the accident happened on Sunday.

    It is thought stormy weather caused the tree to fall to the ground. Police and firefighters fought to rescue those trapped by the tree but 18 students were pronounced* dead at the scene and two others died in hospital, emergency officials said.

    5. Airport attacker wanted to die for Allah

    Yelling that he wanted to kill and die for Allah, a suspected Islamic extremist attacked a French soldier on Saturday morning at Paris’ Orly Airport and wrested* away her assault rifle*, a French prosecutor said. Two colleagues on her patrol shot and killed the man before he could fire the military-grade weapon in the busy airport terminal.

    It was the violent climax of what authorities described as a 90-minute spree* of destructive criminality* across the French capital by the suspect, identified as Ziyed Ben Belgacem.

    6. Dutch PM slaps down far-right challenge

    Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, set to lead the Netherlands for a third successive term, has easily defeated a strong challenge by far-right rival Geert Wilders in key elections seen as a bellwether* of populist* support in Europe, partial vote counts said on Thursday.

    Millions of Dutch flocked to the polls in a near-record turnout, with the stakes high in an election pitting* the pro-European Rutte against his anti-immigration and anti-EU rival. Following last year’s shock Brexit referendum and Donald Trump’s victory in the United States, the Dutch vote was being closely scrutinized* as a gauge of the rise of populism on the continent.
