The longer special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election has gone on, the more President Trump has railed against it.

The streets of Paris were filled with thousands of protesters again on Saturday, in what has become French President Emmanuel Macron's biggest challenge as demonstrations grow more intense.

At least six people are dead after a stampede at a nightclub in Italy, which left dozens of others injured. Most of those killed are minors who were attending a rap concert at the Lanterna Azzurra club in the town of Corinaldo on the Adriatic coast.
