WASHINGTON (AP) — White House advisers aren't backing away from President Donald Trump's claim that President Barack Obama wiretapped his campaign.

She says, Trump "has information and intelligence that the rest of us do not."

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Malaysia says it's protecting its "sovereignty and dignity" by expelling North Korea's ambassador.

Relations between the countries unraveled further after the estranged half-brother of North Korea's leader was fatally poisoned at Kuala Lumpur's airport in February.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea has fired four ballistic missiles in an apparent reaction to huge military drills by Washington and Seoul that Pyongyang insists are an invasion rehearsal. South Korean and Japanese officials say three of the missiles landed in waters that Japan claims as its exclusive economic zone.

LONDON (AP) — Lawmakers in Britain's Parliament are debating today whether employers can force women to wear high heels as part of corporate dress codes. In December 2015, an employment agency sent receptionists Nicola Thorp to work at the finance firm PwC. But the firm told her that her flat shoes were unacceptable and sent her home without pay. Thorp launched an online petition, saying the dress code was "outdated and sexist."

BANGKOK (AP) — Tossing coins in a fountain turned out to be bad luck for a sea turtle in Thailand. Today', doctors in Bangkok removed 915 coins from the stomach of the turtle, which had been living in the fountain. The coins the turtle ingested formed a heavy ball in her stomach that weighed 11 pounds and caused a life-threatening infection. Five surgeons working on the turtle nicknamed "Bank" took more than four hours to remove the coins while the turtle was under general anesthesia.
