Yemen's Houthi movement says it has targeted two Israeli ships with an armed drone and a naval missile, reports a spokesperson for the group's military. The spokesperson said the two ships, Unity Explorer and Number Nine, were targeted after they rejected warnings from the group's navy, the Reuters news agency reported on Sunday. British maritime security company Ambrey said a bulk carrier ship had been hit by at least two drones while sailing in the Red Sea. Another container ship reportedly suffered damage from a drone attack about 101km (63 miles) northwest of the northern Yemeni port of Hodeida, it added.

It's not a typical hide-and-seek game, though, but rather one for the digital age: both the seekers and the hiders chase and evade each other by following their real-time locations on a map on their phones.Our reporter Zeyi Yang played a game with 40 strangers in a seven-acre park built on the site of the infamous Kowloon Walled City. Inside a co-working space in the Rosebank neighborhood of Johannesburg, Jade Abbott popped open a tab on her computer and prompted ChatGPT to count from 1 to 10 in isiZulu, a language spoken by more than 10 million people in her native South Africa. The results were "mixed and hilarious," says Abbott, a computer scientist and researcher. Then she typed in a few sentences in isiZulu and asked the chatbot to translate them into English. Abbott's experience mirrors the situation faced by Africans who don't speak English.
