* A top UN official has warned that war-torn Yemen is facing "total social, economic and institutional collapse." Nearly 7 million people are now on the brink of famine and cholera is spreading. "Crisis is not coming, it is not looming, it is here today - on our watch and ordinary people are paying the price," he said.

* Manuel Noriega, the dictator who ruled Panama from 1983 until 1989 when he was removed from power during the U.S. invasion of Panama, has died at age 83. Noriega was allowed to leave prison in January to undergo surgery to remove a brain tumor, but his condition continued to deteriorate.
