White HousePresident Biden has ended infrastructure talks with a group of Republican senators after the two sides failed to reach an agreement, saying their proposal did not meet the country’s needs. The administration is now shifting its efforts to a coming proposal from a bipartisan group of senators led by Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema. But some Senate Democrats are frustrated that any deal reached by that group is unlikely to satisfy the majority of their caucus, and they are prepared to go it alone. While his legislative efforts stall at home, Biden is preparing to leave today for his first foreign trip as President — where he’ll meet with the UK Prime Minister, Turkish President and other world leaders.Biden's world of challengesBiden's world of challengesBiden's world of challengesJUST WATCHEDBiden’s world of challengesReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

MyanmarThe United Nations estimates 100,000 people in Myanmar’s borderlands have been displaced by fighting that includes attacks by security forces in civilian areas. The country has been in a state of unrest since a military coup in February, with daily protests and fighting between the military and ethnic minority militias. People who have fled Kayah state, which borders Thailand, urgently need shelter, food, water and health care, according to the UN, and the organization urged security forces to let aid workers and supplies through. Thailand, which fears a flood of refugees, is concerned about the fighting and is urging the military government to restore democracy, as per a plan agreed upon by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.US journalists held in a notoriously brutal Myanmar prisonUS journalists held in a notoriously brutal Myanmar prisonLead Anna Coren DNT Live Jake Tapper_00032005JUST WATCHEDUS journalists held in a notoriously brutal Myanmar prisonReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

ChinaUyghurs, a mostly Muslim ethnic group from northwest China, are allegedly being detained and deported at China’s request in three major Arab countries: Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. Rights groups have documented several cases of Uyghur disappearances in the last few years, and families of those deported fear their loved ones have ended up among the estimated 2 million Uyghurs who have been sent to internment camps. Even as Western nations condemn China’s treatment of Uyghurs, activists fear that countries in the Middle East and beyond will be willing to acquiesce to Beijing’s crackdown on members of the ethnic group.
