A fire that raced through part of a historic district of Bangladesh's capital took hours to extinguish and killed dozens. Firefighters and residents frantically worked to douse the flames in the densely packed neighborhood that is a mix of homes, shops and warehouses. Customers at a Hanoi, Vietnam, barbershop are emulating the hairstyles of President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un before the two leaders meet for their second summit next week.
