Maduro favored to win condemned Venezuela vote amid tepid turnout
By Vivian Sequera and Corina Pons CARACAS/BARQUISIMETO, Venezuela (Reuters) - Venezuela's leftist leader, Nicolas Maduro, looked set to win re-election on Sunday in what appeared to be a poorly attended vote condemned by foes as the "coronation" of a dictator and likely to bring new foreign sanctions. The vote could trigger additional sanctions from the United States, and more censure from the European Union and Latin America. The Trump administration said it would not recognize the "sham" election and was considering oil sanctions.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday addressed thousands of expatriate Turks in Sarajevo at his only election rally outside Turkey after other European countries banned such events. The Bosnian capital was chosen for the event -- ahead of Ankara's presidential and parliamentary elections next month -- after European Union states such as Germany, Austria and the Netherlands barred Turkish politicians from electioneering in their countries, stoking tensions between Ankara and Brussels.

Cougar kills mountain biker and wounds another in Washington state
Two friends on a morning mountain bike ride 30 miles (48 kilometres) east of Seattle were attacked by a cougar, killing one of the men and leaving the second hospitalised. The cougar was later found up a tree near the dead man's body, where agents for the state's Fish and Wildlife police shot and killed it hours after the Saturday attack, the Seattle Times reported. The names of neither man were immediately released. The 31-year-old survivor said he and his friend were mountain biking in the Lake Hancock forest area at about 11am when they realised they were being chased by the big cat. "So they stopped and they made a lot of noise, said Capt. Alan Myers of the state department of Fish and Wildlife, ''which is exactly what we counsel people to do. "The two victims then took a minute and were catching their breath about this amazing, incredibly scary event that just occurred and suddenly the victim (the survivor) was attacked again by this cougar.  "It latched onto his head. He said he had his whole entire head in the jaws of this animal and was being shaken around very, very horribly."  Here's a photo of the cougar that attacked two men on a mountain bike ride near North Bend today.

Islamic State fighters 'evacuate Damascus enclave' as Bashar Assad moves to reclaim western Syria
A war monitor said buses evacuated Islamic State fighters from an enclave south of Damascus on Sunday in a withdrawal deal, though state media denied the report and said the Syrian army was fighting to finish off the insurgents. The recovery of the enclave south of Damascus will mark another milestone in President Bashar al-Assad's war effort, crushing the last besieged rebel enclave in western Syria. Swathes of territory at the borders with Iraq, Turkey and Jordan, however, remain outside state control. Syrian government forces and their allies have been battling to recover the enclave south of Damascus since defeating rebels in eastern Ghouta, also near the capital, in April. The area is centred around the al-Hajar al-Aswad district and the adjoining Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk. In a live broadcast, a reporter with Syrian state TV said the Syrian army operations in the Hajar al-Aswad area were nearing their end and insurgent lines were collapsing as columns of smoke rose from the area behind him.

The Prince of Wales described how emotional he felt watching his youngest son, whom he still remembers so clearly as a baby, marrying the love of his life. As he addressed 600 guests gathered at the reception St George's Hall, there was barely a dry eye as he spoke so warmly about his "darling old Harry" and the man he had grown into. The Prince described how moving it was, at this point in his life, to watch his little boy move on. A little boy, whom he had winded so often as a baby and whom, he joked, might still have a bit of wind today. Guests described how warmly he welcomed Meghan Markle and her mother, Doria Ragland, to Windsor and into his family. Frequently, throughout the course of the reception, he was spotted with his arm around Mrs Ragland.

Stunning helicopter footage shows Hawaii volcano's fast-moving lava flow
The United States Geological Survey released stunning new footage on Saturday showing the lava pouring from a fissure created by activity around Kilauea, an active volcano in Hawaii that exploded Thursday morning. The footage, which was filmed just before 8:00 a.m. Hawaii local time shows a powerful lava flow tearing its way across the island, dangerously close to multiple structures.  SEE ALSO: Hawaii's Kilauea volcano just exploded According to the USGS, the flow is advancing southeast, and it originated from a line of low fountains, which can be seen in the background of the clip. A status report from the USGS states that the rate of lava eruption in the lower east rift zone increased on Friday and continued overnight. As of Saturday morning, the flow remained "very active" and was moving at speeds of up to 300 yards per hour.  "It is unknown whether the flows will continue to advance, or stop, and new lava flows are likely given the rate of activity seen at the rift zone," the report ominously states. An eruption also occurred Friday night at Halema'uma'u, the crater in the middle of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The plume extended to 10,000 ft, and left "noticeable ashfall" was reported downwind in the southwest direction.  The report also notes that ground cracks and lava outbreaks are still possible in the area.

From Madrid to Miami and from Montevideo to Santiago, hundreds of thousands of Venezuelans live in exile, having fled their country as it descended into economic ruin over the past few years.

Farm bill fails in U.S. House as immigration spat roils Republican Party
By Amanda Becker and Susan Cornwell WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. House of Representatives rejected a sweeping $867 billion farm bill on Friday after Republican leaders failed to appease conservative lawmakers who had asked them not to hold the vote until they were given the chance to consider a bill to clamp down on immigration. The next steps are unclear for the farm bill, which failed in a 198-to-213 vote. The farm bill's passage through the House has been entangled in the debate over immigration, as the conservative House Freedom Caucus sought to pre-empt a move by moderate Republicans and Democrats to use procedural tactics to force a wide-ranging immigration debate on the House floor.

Saudi Arabia detains women's rights activists weeks before female driving ban comes to an end
Saudi Arabia has detained several prominent female activists who campaigned for women's right to drive, taking them into custody just weeks before the decades-long driving ban finally comes to an end. Human rights groups said Loujain al-Hathloul, Eman al-Nafjan and Aziza al-Yousef - three of the most prominent voices demanding women be free to drive - were all detained on Thursday. Two male advocates for women's rights were also detained, activists said.  The activists were detained as Saudi Arabia prepares for the driving ban to come to an end on June 24. The policy shift has become a symbol of the modernising drive of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and the Saudi government is eager for positive media coverage of the move.  The detentions appear to be an effort by Saudi authorities to make sure they do not have to share credit for the end of the driving ban with activists who spent years campaigning for it.  They may also be concerned that the women right's campaigners would use the end of the driving to call for further advances in women's freedom - like an end to the male guardianship system that severely limits Saudi women's ability to travel independently.  A woman in a black niqab drives in Saudi Arabia Neither Ms Narfjan nor Ms Hathloul could be reached for comment. Ms Hathloul told The Telegraph earlier this year that shortly before Saudi authorities announced the end of the driving ban in September she was warn

The Royal Wedding was another perfect opportunity to troll Trump's inauguration
The Royal Wedding day was all about Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and Donald Trump, of course. As massive crowds showed up to celebrate the couple's big day, many couldn't help but notice that more people seemed to crowding the streets of the post-wedding carriage procession through Windsor than were present at Donald Trump's 2017 Inauguration. SEE ALSO: Google celebrates Meghan and Harry's wedding with stunning Doodle Trump's inaugural crowd size has been a running joke on the internet ever since former Press Secretary Sean Spicer dubbed Trump's turnout "The largest audience to ever witness an inauguration — period — both in person and around the globe." Then, to troll Trump, people began comparing scarcely populated photos of his inauguration to larger crowds at Obama's, and the Women's Marches, and so on.  To keep the tradition alive, people were sure to let Trump know thousands turned out to support the Royal Wedding.

Exclusive: In run-up to Venezuelan vote, more soldiers dissent and desert
By Girish Gupta and Anggy Polanco CARACAS/SAN CRISTOBAL, Venezuela (Reuters) - Arrests for rebellion and desertion are rising sharply in Venezuela's armed forces, a mainstay of President Nicolas Maduro's Socialist government, amid discontent within the ranks at food shortages and dwindling salaries, according to documents and interviews with army personnel. Internal military documents reviewed by Reuters showed that the number of soldiers detained for treason, rebellion and desertion rose to 172 in the first four months of the year, up three-and-a-half times on the same period of 2017. Former military officials said the figures reflected a dramatic increase in the level of dissent within Venezuela's once-proud armed forces.
