The changes could take effect on Sunday, after the conclusion of a policy review that was part of the original ban. It looked at whether other countries were complying with security measures that could prevent terrorists from entering the U.S.
It’s not clear which countries would be targeted under the new restrictions or exactly how many would be affected. The changes could have a big impact on the pending Supreme Court review of the ban. Above, a scene from Dulles International Airport in Virginia in June.
3. “Mentally deranged U.S. dotard.” That was Kim Jong-un in an “unprecedented” personal statement, criticizing President Trump over his threat to annihilate North Korea. Here’s the full text.
The North Korean media carried photographs of Mr. Kim sitting in his office and reading from notes, but his voice was not broadcast. Instead, a female announcer read the statement.
We delved into the etymology of “dotard.” Mr. Trump, in turn, called Mr. Kim “a madman.”
4. Germany goes the polls on Sunday, and the vote is effectively a referendum on Chancellor Angela Merkel. She’s widely expected to win, after the campaign of her main rival, Martin Schulz, fizzled out.
The story to watch is whether a far-right party makes big gains; one is poised to enter Parliament for the first time in 60 years. Here’s our comprehensive guide to the election, with links to our best recent coverage of Germany.
5. London revoked Uber’s license, citing “a lack of corporate responsibility” and concerns about safety and security. The company will be allowed to continue operating as it appeals the decision.
The city was one of Uber’s biggest success stories outside the U.S. But the company has also fought a heated battle with London’s black-cab drivers, who must pass a famously difficult test called The Knowledge.
6. In other news from London, an 18-year-old was charged with attempted murder in last week’s train bombing. Two other men remain in custody without charges.
The terror attack — the fifth in Britain this year — prompted a stampede and left more than 30 people wounded. The authorities said the bomb, made with the banned explosive T.A.T.P., failed to explode properly and could have done much more damage if it had.
7. The earthquake has left many in Mexico City’s hippest neighborhoods questioning whether to stay.
Roma and Condesa were devastated in the 1985 earthquake, but eventually rebuilt and became the megacity’s “reigning axis of cool.” They were hit hard again this week (see above).
Mexico City’s central districts are uniquely vulnerable to earthquakes because they are built on an ancient lakebed.
8. Hurricane Maria continued on its destructive path, bringing heavy rain and storm surges to Turks and Caicos and moving toward the Bahamas. It’s forecast to weaken slightly over the weekend as it makes a northward turn over the Atlantic.
The death toll around the Caribbean was at least 27, and bankrupt Puerto Rico, above, faces a daunting effort to rebuild. Here’s how to help.
On today’s episode of “The Daily,” we discuss the arguments made by Caribbean leaders at the U.N. this week. They say that the recent storms have created a humanitarian crisis — and that humans are to blame.
9. This week’s “Modern Love” column is about doing the dishes.
And a lot more, of course. It’s about negotiating gender roles as a young couple, and how to reconcile one partner’s success with another’s struggles.
10. Finally, two movies portraying powerful women hit theaters this weekend. Our columnist Maureen Dowd talked to Judi Dench, the celebrated British actress, about “Victoria & Abdul.” (Their champagne-fueled chat also covered sex, rap and tattoos.)
Ms. Dench, 82, portrays Queen Victoria as she grows close to a much younger servant. Our critic called it “wobbly” and took issue with its portrayal of the queen as a progressive figure. Above, Ms. Dench and her co-star, Ali Fazal.
The review was more positive for “Battle of the Sexes” about a 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King, then a 29-year-old feminist symbol, and Bobby Riggs, an older champion and avowed sexist. Emma Stone and Steve Carell star.
“It was personal and it was political,” our critic wrote. “It was also entertainment, which is where the movie really excels.”
Have a great weekend.
