Associated Press World View: US New Vax Deadline, Ethnic Cleansing by Ethiopia, Chauvin-Floyd Trial, More

Alternate text

President Joe Biden has brought forward his deadline to make all U.S. adults eligible for coronavirus vaccinations.

In Sudan, Tigrayan refugees accuse Ethiopia’s government and its allies of ethnic cleansing.

And in Australia, a TV commercial art director killing time in coronavirus quarantine has become the “paper cowboy.”

Also this morning:

  • At George Floyd trial, Minneapolis officers reject Chauvin’s actions.
  • Even as U.S. schools reopen, many students learn remotely.
  • Iranian state TV acknowledges ship attacked in Red Sea.
