    Houthi drone attack 'hits arms depot' at Saudi airport in Najran

    Yemen's Houthi rebels said they launched a bomb-laden drone into Saudi Arabia targeting an airport with a military base - an attack acknowledged by the kingdom. It was not clear if there were any injuries or what the extent of damage was.

    World's biggest cave is even bigger than we thought

    Last month, a trio of British divers -- the same divers who aided in the rescue of the trapped soccer team in Thailand in 2018 -- ventured to Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, in the jungle-filled Quang Binh Province of central Vietnam, to explore the cave's waterways. During the groundbreaking dive, they discovered a new underwater tunnel that connects Son Doong (meaning "Mountain River Cave") with another enormous cave called Hang Thung. Son Doong currently measures a total of 38.5 million cubic meters (about 1.35 billion cubic feet). When it's officially connected with Thung Cave, it will add an additional 1.6 million cubic meters in volume. Diving in Son Doong British divers Jason Mallinson,

    Tehran says Trump's 'genocidal taunts won't end Iran'

    Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Monday the “genocidal taunts” of US President Donald Trump will not “end Iran”, as tensions spike between the two countries. “Iranians have stood tall for millennia while aggressors all gone. Economic terrorism and genocidal taunts won't 'end Iran',” Zarif wrote on Twitter. “Never threaten an Iranian. Try respect - it works!” he added. In another tweet, Zarif accused Trump of allowing his team to “trash diplomacy” and “abet war crimes - by milking despotic butchers via massive arms sales.” The riposte by Iran's top diplomat followed an ominous warning by Trump, who on Sunday suggested the Islamic republic would be destroyed if it attacked US
