World news covers international stories of a global nature, such as political events in other countries, conflicts, or summits. It can also include natural disasters, such as tsunamis or hurricanes. It is sometimes confused with the more general term “international news”, although there is a distinction in some contexts, such as when it refers to specific events that affect a particular country or region, such as wars or peace talks.
A journalist who specializes in world news is called a correspondent. Correspondents often work for a foreign newspaper or radio and television station, though they may also work for domestic outlets. They are often based in a foreign city and regularly file stories on a local or regional basis. A correspondent often maintains contacts within the community, diplomats and members of the military in order to gather information.
