SEOUL, South Korea (AP) – U.S. and South Korean troops kicked off their annual drills Monday that come after President Donald Trump and North Korea exchanged warlike rhetoric in the wake of the North’s two intercontinental ballistic missile tests last month.

The U.S. and South Korea say they are defensive in nature.

UNDATED (AP) – Americans are staking out prime viewing spots along a narrow corridor stretching from Oregon to South Carolina to watch the moon blot out the sun Monday.

Eclipse watchers everywhere — well into the millions — are hoping for clear skies for the first total solar eclipse to sweep across the U.S., coast to coast, in practically a century. Astronomers consider a full eclipse the grandest of cosmic spectacles.
