AP Morning Wire

Beginning next week, we offer something new: As dawn approaches in the United States, some of The Associated Press’ top journalists across Europe will be alternating each weekday to create your Morning Wire. They’ll scour our global news report for the most significant and most relevant stories and imagery – and a few unexpected things as well.

Until then, please enjoy this selection of stories from the AP’s global news report. And thank you for reading.
