The World in 60 rounds up the news from around the globe in one minute.
People expect to have news from around the world at their fingertips, but there isn’t always time. This is why Arlington Public News introduced World in 60 in July 2014.
This edition of World in 60 reports on the Japanese elections that have been re-scheduled for December, two years ahead of time by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the stabbing in Jerusalem that left four dead and eight injured, and the anticipation of terror in the US state of Missouri, due to the verdict of the Michael Brown shooting.
