LONDON (AP) — President Barack Obama is urging the next generation of British leaders to give serious thought to how they solve problems. Speaking to a group of young people in London, Obama turned a light-hearted question about priorities for his successor into a treatise on his preference for diplomacy over military conflict. The president said leaders need to recognize "that security is not just a matter of military actions" but also a matter of "the messages we send and the institutions that we build and the diplomacy that we engage in."
HANNOVER, Germany (AP) — Thousands of demonstrators have turned out in the German city of Hannover to protest a planned U.S.-Europe free trade agreement. Police say more than 20,000 people gathered for the demonstration, a day before President Barack Obama arrives.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea has fired what appeared to be a ballistic missile from a submarine off its northeast coast.

PIKETON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities are urging people in rural southern Ohio to be cautious as the search continues for a shooter who killed eight members of a family at four different locations.

AUBURN, N.Y. (AP) — A proposal to turn Harriet Tubman's upstate New York home into a National Historical Park is moving ahead, days after the announcement that the abolitionist will be featured on the $20 bill. The Citizen newspaper in Auburn, New York, reports that U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch has signed a general agreement allowing the transfer of land to the National Park Service.
