1. China steps up military activity in response to House Speaker Pelosi's Taiwan trip

Mrs. Pelosi, the highest-ranking U.S. official to visit Taiwan in a quarter-century, now heads to South Korea and Japan before returning to the U.S.

During her meeting with President Tsai Ing-wen, Mrs. Pelosi said the U.S. wouldn’t abandon its commitment to Taiwan, framing her visit as part of a broader struggle over democracy’s future.

In a phone call with President Biden, Chinese officials, including leader Xi Jinping, had warned against Mrs. Pelosi’s Taiwan visit. Following her arrival in Taipei, Beijing said it is preparing live-fire military exercises this week in areas encircling the island.

2. Advocates celebrate as Kansas votes to keep abortion legal

After the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, voters in the traditionally conservative state of Kansas have overwhelmingly decided to preserve legal access to abortion.

Jackson Proskow has the reaction, and explains what these results could signal ahead of the November U.S. midterm elections.

3. New details in US drone strike that killed al-Qaeda leader

The United States killed al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in a drone strike, President Joe Biden said Monday in a speech from the White House.

"I authorized a precision strike that would remove him from the battlefield, once and for all," Biden said. Zawahiri, who just turned 71 years old, had remained a visible international symbol of the group, 11 years after the US killed Osama bin Laden.

At one point, he acted as bin Laden's personal physician. Zawahiri was sheltering in downtown Kabul to reunite with his family, Biden said, and was killed in what a senior administration official described as "a precise tailored airstrike" using two Hellfire missiles.

The drone strike was conducted at 9:48 p.m. ET on Saturday and was authorized by Biden following weeks of meetings with his Cabinet and key advisers, the official said on Monday, adding that no American personnel were on the ground in Kabul at the time of the strike.
 

Senior Haqqani Taliban figures were aware of Zawahiri's presence in the area, the official said, in "clear violation of the Doha agreement," and even took steps to conceal his presence after Saturday's successful strike, restricting access to the safe house and rapidly relocating members of his family, including his daughter and her children,

who were intentionally not targeted during the strike and remained unharmed. The US did not alert Taliban officials ahead of Saturday's strike.

4. Delegation visit after civilians killed by UN peacekeepers 

There are more than 120 militias operating in the DRC's troubled east. The UN first deployed an observer mission to the region in 1999.

Democratic Republic of Congo's government will re-evaluate the withdrawal plan of the United Nations peacekeeping mission after deadly anti-U.N. protests last week, it said late on Monday, suggesting it may ask the force to leave sooner than expected.

On Tuesday, the U.N. peacekeeping mission, known as MONUSCO, said it supports the government's decision and is also ready to reassess its withdrawal plan, which currently has it staying for at least two more years.

5. War in Ukraine: The first shipment since Russia's invasion reaches Turkey

The ship Razon, carrying 26,527 tonnes of corn to Lebanon, departed Ukraine's Odesa port on Monday and was inspected by Russian, Ukrainian, Turkish and U.N. personnel working at a Joint Coordination Centre in nearby Istanbul.
