1. Macron youngest French president

The pro-EU centrist* Emmanuel Macron won the French presidency in a decisive victory on Sunday over the far-right National Front leader, Marine Le Pen, and vowed to unite a divided and fractured* France.

Macron, 39, a former economy minister who ran as a “neither left nor right” independent promising to shake up the French political system, took 66 percent to Le Pen’s 34 percent.

In a congratulatory message to Macron on Monday, Chinese President Xi Jinping said France was the first major Western country to have established diplomatic ties with the People’s Republic of China.

2. US Police kill teen holding a BB gun

Police shot and killed a 15-year-old student on Saturday after he pointed a BB gun at them in a high school parking lot in San Diego, U.S. authorities said.

The Torrey Pines High School student called 911 shortly before 3:30 a.m. to ask officers to check on the welfare of an unarmed boy in front of the school, according to a police statement.

He didn’t name the boy, but investigators later determined he was referring to himself, police said. The boy pulled a gun from his waistband* and pointed it at an officer on his arrival, police said.

3. North Korea detains 4th US citizen

North Korea has detained another American who worked at a private university in Pyongyang, taking to four the number of U.S. citizens being held by the country.

Kim Hak-song, who worked for the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology, was detained on Saturday, North Korea’s state news agency said.

Kim was arrested on suspicion of “hostile* acts” against North Korea, the Korean Central News Agency said.

4. Pupils killed in Tanzania bus crash

At least 35 people were killed, most of them young children, after a bus carrying students lost control and crashed in northern Tanzania, police said on Saturday.

The bus had been carrying the students from a primary school in Arusha for an examination, Arusha Region Police Commander Charles Mkumbo said. It skidded* off the road near the Mlera river in Meatu district and plunged into a gully.

Officials said the dead included 32 young students, two teachers and a bus driver. They said all of those bodies had been recovered.

5. Kidnapped Chibok girls released

Boko Haram* mi-

litants have re-leased dozens of schoolgirls out of a group of more than 200, whom they kidnapped from the northeastern town of Chibok in April 2014, officials said on Saturday.

A government minister, asking not to be named, said 82 girls had been released. “The girls were released through negotiations with the government,” the official said, adding that an official statement would follow shortly.

A military source said the girls were currently in Banki near the Cameroon border for medical checks before being airlifted to Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state.

6. About 200 Indonesian inmates at large

Indonesian authorities said about 200 inmates remained at large* by Sunday, two days after a mass escape from an overcrowded prison on Sumatra island.

The prison break on Friday occurred when prisoners were let out of their cells at Sialang Bungkuk Prison in Pekanbaru, the capital of Riau province, to perform prayers. They broke through a prison door, overwhelming* the few guards on duty. Local police chief Susanto, who goes by one name, said 242 men were recaptured by Sunday leaving about 200 still at large.
