World Brief discusses recent events in Iran, Pakistan, Israel, China, and the United States. Iran has agreed to improve security cooperation with Pakistan after a recent deadly airstrike that resulted in 11 deaths. However, Iran has continued to take destabilizing actions against other countries, executing four men allegedly linked to Israel’s spy agency and a drone strike at a U.S. base that resulted in three American soldiers being killed. In other news, China’s Evergrande has been ordered to liquidate, and several West African countries are planning to leave ECOWAS. The Wall Street Journal also reported that at least 12 UNRWA staff members are connected to Hamas attacks, resulting in funding being suspended by nine countries, including the United States. Finally, food security activists protested at Paris’s Louvre Museum, but the Mona Lisa remained unharmed behind bullet-proof glass.
