1. Charlottesville

Thousands of people gathered for a candlelit vigil at the University of Virginia, as Charlottesville -- and the nation -- try to understand the chaos and tragic deaths tied to a white nationalist rally. It came as President Trump remained defiant following his comments that "both sides" -- white nationalists and their opponents -- are to blame for heightened tensions at the rally and elsewhere.
    And fallout from Trump's remarks is still reverberating. A few more CEOs left the President's business councils before he shut them down. A former CIA chief called Trump's comments "dangerous," and top White House aide Steve Bannon, a self-described economic nationalist, reportedly called white nationalists "clowns"; meantime, another top aide, first daughter Ivanka Trump, hasn't commented on what her dad said. In a rare move, top military commanders spoke out about Charlottesville, condemning white nationalists but steering clear of the commander in chief. And now there's growing concern that Trump's comments may be making him so radioactive -- outside of his base -- that it'd be almost impossible for him to govern.

    2. North Korea

    South Korea's President says there's not going to be war on the Korean peninsula -- ever again -- if he can help it. Moon Jae-in made his no-war promise during a news conference marking his first 100 days in office. Moon said President Trump promised he'd consult with the South before taking any military action against North Korea. Moon also talked of his own "red line" with the North, saying the North Koreans would cross it if they completed an ICBM and weaponized it with a nuke.

    3. MH370

    There may be a vital new clue in the mystery of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370. Newly discovered satellite photos, shot just weeks after the plane disappeared in 2014, show 70 objects drifting in the Indian Ocean near what's thought to be the crash zone. A report from Australia's Transport Safety Bureau says some of the objects are "probably man-made," but it's hard to tell if they're plane debris.
    It's not clear what will be done with this discovery, since the official search for MH370 ended in January (though relatives of some of the 239 people on board say they're planning a private search). Debris confirmed to be from the plane has washed up along the eastern coast of Africa for the past couple of years.

    4. Military helicopter crash

    Five crewmen are missing after an Army chopper crashed in Hawaii. The UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter went down during a training exercise a couple of miles off the coast of the island of Oahu. The search is on for the missing crewmen; a debris field was spotted in the water a little more than an hour after communications with the helicopter were lost. The same kind of aircraft crashed in April on a Maryland golf course, killing one one crew member.

    5. Hong Kong activists

    A court has locked up three high-profile activists after they helped organize protests in 2014 that grew into the largest pro-democracy demonstrations the city's ever seen. Joshua Wong, Nathan Law and Alex Chow were sentenced to about six months in prison. The move comes as a surprise because the men had already completed community service, but the government said that wasn't enough. The 2014 protests spawned new political parties, including some that are still calling for self-determination or full independence from China.
