Saudi security shoots down recreational drone near royal palaceBy Rania El Gamal and Stephen Kalin DUBAI/RIYADH (Reuters) – Saudi Arabian security forces said they had shot down a recreational drone in the capital on Saturday after online videos showing gunfire in a neighborhood where royal palaces are located sparked fears of possible political unrest. The Riyadh police spokesman, quoted by the official Saudi News Agency (SPA), said a security screening point noticed the flying of a small unauthorized recreational drone at 7:50 p.m. local time (1650 GMT), leading security forces to deal with it according to their orders and instructions. There were no casualties, and King Salman was not at his palace at the time, a senior Saudi official told Reuters.

Migrant caravan, down by almost half, soldiers on through Mexico

Migrant caravan, down by almost half, soldiers on through MexicoBy Delphine Schrank and Lizbeth Diaz MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – A “caravan” of Central American migrants pressed on through Mexico on Friday, greatly diminished in size a day after hundreds of exhausted members left a field where they had been stranded all week, pressured by government officials who have been under fire from U.S. President Donald Trump. About 800 people were left in the caravan, said Irineo Mujica, director of Pueblo Sin Fronteras, a group that has since 2010 been staging annual caravans to ensure safe passage for migrants and draw attention to their rights. This year’s caravan had about 1,500 migrants at its peak, but people began to leave the group after immigration authorities stalled it in the southern town of Matias Romero and screened men, women, and children following pressure from Trump.
