MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (AP) — Solar Impulse 2 has completed another leg of its round-the-world journey powered only by the sun and stored electricity. The solar-powered airplane landed in Mountain View, California, today, completing a risky, three-day flight across the Pacific Ocean from Hawaii. The aircraft started its journey in March 2015 from Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, and made stops in Oman, Myanmar, China and Japan.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Family and friends of Prince say they're planning a musical celebration of his life in the future but yesterday's service was meant to be a private, "loving goodbye" after his remains had been cremated. Some of the hundreds of fans who congregated at Paisley Park Saturday got a memento of Prince. People emerged from the estate and handed out round purple boxes containing a color photo of Prince and a black T-shirt with "3121" printed on it in white — the numbers were the title of a Prince album.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States' response to the latest North Korea missile test claim is to put Pyongyang's foreign minister on a short leash while he's in New York. North Korea says it successfully test-fired a ballistic missile from a submarine. State Department spokesman John Kirby says the U.S. has determined it necessary to limit the travel of the visiting foreign minister and his delegation to only those places necessary for them to conduct their United Nations functions.

QUITO, Ecuador (AP) — International earthquake aid is arriving in Ecuador but relief workers warn of delays in water distribution and said mosquito-borne illness could spread through the camps where residents continue to sleep outdoors. The death toll from last week's magnitude-7.8 earthquake that flattened towns along Ecuador's coast has risen to 654 with another 58 people missing.

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Police say a handcuffed man shot and killed himself at a Baton Rouge hospital early Saturday after carjacking an acquaintance in New Orleans and kidnapping a second woman at gunpoint. Police say Garry Saxton was handcuffed behind his back when he fatally shot himself with a gun that he apparently hid in a seat before hospital security searched and detained him.
