The United States dropped a massive GBU-43 bomb, the largest non-nuclear bomb it has ever used in combat, in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday against a series of caves used by Islamic State militants, the military said. It was the first time the United States has used this size of bomb in a conflict.

By Steve Holland and Emily Stephenson | WASHINGTON President Donald Trump’s national security adviser, Michael Flynn, resigned late on Monday under scrutiny over whether he discussed the possibility of lifting U.S. sanctions on Russia before Trump took office. Flynn submitted his resignation hours after Trump said through a spokesman that he was reviewing the situation and talking to Vice President Mike Pence. Flynn had promised Pence he had not discussed sanctions with the Russians but it was later discovered that the subject had come up. “Unfortunately, because of the fast pace of events, I inadvertently briefed the vice president-elect and…

Germany president: Steinmeier chosen by lawmakers

BBC

Former German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier has been elected president by a parliamentary assembly. The Social Democrat, 61, is one of Germany’s most popular politicians. The post is largely ceremonial, but the president represents Germany abroad and is seen as carrying moral weight. During the US election campaign, the usually circumspect ex-lawyer described Donald Trump as a “hate preacher” and predicted more challenging relations with Washington. He has also criticised those who “make politics with fear”, and spoken out against right-wing populism. ‘Straight-talking’ Mr Steinmeier was chosen by the Federal Assembly meeting in parliament in Berlin. He won 931 out…

The department says that for now, people covered by the order and holding a valid visa may now travel to the United States. On Friday, the State Department announced that the 60,000 visas had been provisionally revoked to comply with President Trump’s temporary ban on travel. Federal judge James Robart, who was appointed by former President George W. Bush in 2003, ruled Friday that the executive order…

Immigration lawyers and advocates worked through the night trying to help stranded travelers find a way back home. Lawyers in New York sued to block the order, saying many people have already been unlawfully detained, including an Iraqi who worked for the U.S. Army in Iraq. Confusion abounded at airports as immigration…
