VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis decried as worrisome those who whip up fear of migrants for political gain as he urged people Friday to view global migration as a peace-building opportunity and not as a threat.

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Zimbabwe's new president Emmerson Mnangagwa, widely known as the Crocodile, is seen as a smart, ruthless politician, but many question if he will be able to bring the change the country craves.

HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) — Zimbabwe's new President Emmerson Mnangagwa vowed Friday he will work to reduce crushing unemployment and return the country to prosperity after years of decline, as the nation cheered a new beginning after the extraordinary exit of Robert Mugabe.

LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) — Pakistani authorities acting on a court order released a U.S.-wanted militant Friday who allegedly founded a banned group linked to the 2008 Mumbai, India attack that killed 168 people, his spokesman and officials said.

TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras (AP) — Less than a decade ago, even talk of re-election was enough to get a Honduran president overthrown.
