President Trump signs the new Russia sanctions bill, angering America's EU allies. Moscow describes it as declaring a full-scale trade war. The sanction screws tighten on North Korea, too, over its missile tests, as a U.S.-drafted resolution is unanimously backed by the UN Security Council. The Venezuelan president's also targeted by U.S. restrictions, over his constitutional reform referendum which has infuriated the opposition. Italy and aid groups argue over how to conduct 'migrant search-and-rescue' operations, as suspicion grows that humanitarian boats are colluding with people traffickers.
