India will help Maldives in conservation and restoration of Maldives' Friday mosques, PM Narendra announced. Modi while addressing the Muslim-majority nation's Parliament, the People's Maijlis, on Saturday made the announcement.

Several thousand Venezuelans, desperate for food and medicine, packed a border crossing to Colombia on Saturday, hours after President Nicolas Maduro partially reopened it. Maduro had the day prior ordered the reopening of the Venezuelan border in the western state of Tachira, near the location in Colombia where the international community had massed humanitarian aid that Maduro's government refused to take. Early Saturday, thousands of people rushed to the border bridges between the two countries, and crowds in long queues stretched throughout the day.

The list of dishes reads like a health-conscious menu at an up market cafe: mackerel cooked in miso, a light salad of daikon radish and sour plum, thinly sliced pickled vegetables and a selection of fresh fruit. But the "restaurant" is actually a classroom at Konan primary school in central Japan, where the pupils need only the gentlest encouragement to eat their greens. When the Guardian visited the school in the Pacific coastal city of Fukuroi, the classroom, momentarily transformed into a lunchtime cafeteria.
