Five stories to know for June 14, 2021: 1. Following the G7 summit in England, Joe Biden attends a NATO summit in Brussels. The U.S. president will rally Western allies to support a U.S. strategy to contain China's military rise as well as showing unity in the face of Russian aggression. 2. One of 14 people hurt in a mass shooting in Austin, Texas, died according to media reports. Two men opened fire at each other in a busy entertainment district. Police arrested one suspect and are searching for another. 3. Benjamin Netanyahu’s record run in office ended on Sunday with Israel’s parliament approving, by a razor-thin majority of 60-59, a new administration led by Naftali Bennett, a nationalist whose views mirror Netanyahu's on many issues. In Tel Aviv, thousands turned out to welcome the result, after four inconclusive elections in two years. 4. The United States is looking into reports of a leak at a Chinese nuclear power plant, after warnings of an "imminent radiological threat" by a French company that helps operate it, CNN reported on Monday. 5. Bitcoin climbed just shy of $40,000 on Monday, after yet another weekend of price swings following tweets from Tesla boss Elon Musk, who fended off criticism over his market influence and said Tesla sold bitcoin but may resume transactions using it. #Biden #NATO #Netanyahu #G7 #Erdogan #Brussels #NaftaliBennett #BenjaminNetanyahu #Knesset #Israel #Texas #Austin #TexasShooting #Bitcoin #ElonMusk #Tesla #JoeBiden #News #Reuters Subscribe: http://smarturl.it/reuterssubscribe Reuters brings you the latest business, finance and breaking news video from around the globe.
