- Saudi Arabia’s energy minister urged global oil producing nations on Sunday to extend their cooperation beyond 2018, but said this might mean a new form of deal rather than continuing the same supply cuts that have boosted prices in recent months.
It was the first time that Saudi Arabia had publicly raised the possibility of a new form of coordination among oil producers after 2018. Their agreement on supply cuts, originally launched last January, is set to expire in December this...
- Afghan commando forces have ended an overnight siege at Kabul’s Intercontinental Hotel that resulted in the deaths of all five heavily armed assailants and six guests, including a female foreign national, officials said Sunday.
An Interior Ministry spokesman, Nasrat Rahimi, told VOA the last surviving attacker blew himself up around 11 a.m. local time, setting ablaze the sixth floor where he had been holed up.
Security forces were going room by room before formally declaring the...

- Rough estimates say about 2 of every 100 people around the world have or need replacement joints. Now, some Polish doctors are using stem cell technology to rebuild worn out cartilage, instead of replacing it with metal. VOA's Kevin Enochs reports.
- Bobsled and Nigeria are not two words typically used in the same sentence. But soon they will be heard together often. Bobsledders Seun Adigun, Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omeoga will not be heading to February's Winter Olympic Games just to be a "feel good" side story. They say they want to win something they can bring back to West Africa. VOA’s Mariama Diallo reports on the historic participation of the Nigerian bobsledding team in this year’s games.
- Afghanistan's arts and architecture were once the pride of Asia. However, more than four decades of war have left many of the country’s traditional crafts on the verge of extinction.

VOA Deewa service’s Munaza Shaheed reports from a recent trip to Kabul.

- Donald Trump, the presidential candidate, would not like the way Trump, the president, is crowing about today’s unemployment rate. He’d be calling the whole thing a “hoax.”
Trump raised a red flag about declining jobless numbers during his campaign, denying President Barack Obama any credit. Trump noted that the jobless rate masks the true employment picture by leaving out the millions who have given up looking for work.
But Trump is seeing red no more. The same stats he assailed in...
- Oprah Winfrey and Rob Lowe give Montecito its star power, but it’s people like Antonio and Victor Benitez who keep the wealthy Southern California community running.
The Mexican brothers are gardeners and part of the town’s working-class immigrant population, which suffered outsized losses from the recent mudslides that killed at least 21, injured dozens and damaged or destroyed hundreds of homes.
Antonio and Victor Benitez suffered broken bones and each lost a child. Antonio’s wife...
- Every summer for the past 15 years, Cambodian adoptees and their adoptive families from across the United States have gathered at a Colorado camp in the heart of the Rocky Mountains.

But as we grew up, we both kind of regretted that,” said Kunthia Porter, 25, who with her sister Devin...

- Paul Bocuse, who died on Saturday at age 91, combined a passion for food and women with a nose for self-publicity that brought him fame and fortune far beyond his native France.
Decades before the era of the foodie and celebrity TV chef, Bocuse enjoyed rock star status among the world’s culinary cognescenti and started restaurants from Tokyo to New York.
“Paul Bocuse was the incarnation of French cuisine,” French President Emmanuel Macron said in a statement.
L‘Auberge du Pont de...
- Pope Francis denounced femicides and other gender-based crimes that have turned Latin America into the most violent place on Earth for women, calling Saturday for legislation to protect them and for a new cultural mindset as he visited one of Peru’s most dangerous parts.
At a Marian prayer in the northern seaside city of Trujillo, Francis called women, mothers and grandmothers the guiding force for families. And yet, he said, in the Americas they are too often victims of murder and “many...

Algerian Bilel Kobi was “the right arm of Abu Wadud” and was killed in an ambush near the Algerian border when on a mission to...
