President Donald Trump met Pope Francis at the Vatican on Wednesday โ€” the latest in a string of high-level meetings at sites sacred to the world's three great monotheistic religions.
.
The president smiled broadly beside @franciscus, who appeared subdued and stone-faced before their 30-minute private conversation.
.
However, #PopeFrancis' mood lightened considerably during their gift exchange.
.
Trump and the pontiff have disagreed in the past. During the election campaign, Francis criticized Trump's promise to build a wall on the Mexican border and his declaration that the U.S. should turn away Muslim immigrants and refugees.

Sir Roger Moore, who embodied the heartthrob swagger of the world's most famous spy "James Bond" for a dozen years, has died at age 89.
.
#RogerMoore played the infamous British spy from 1973 until 1985. He was the longest serving #JamesBond in the film's series.
.
"Being eternally known as Bond has no downside," Moore told The Guardian. "People often call me 'Mr. Bond' when we're out, and I don't mind a bit. Why would I?"

A massive new #landslide along California's iconic coastal Highway 1 has buried the road under a 40-foot layer of rock and dirt, the latest hit in winter of crippling slides and flooding.
.
A swath of the hillside gave way in an area called Mud Creek on Saturday night, covering about one-third of a mile of road and changing the Big Sur coastline immediately below, according to officials.
.
The state already had closed that part of Highway 1 to repair buckled pavement and remove debris after an earlier slide triggered by one of #California's rainiest winters in decades.

People rush out of a shopping center in #Manchester, England after it was evacuated on Tuesday. Tension remains high in the British city following a suicide attack last night after an Ariana Grande concert at Britain's Manchester Arena.

President Donald Trump placed a note in the Western Wall in #Jerusalem on Monday, becoming the first sitting U.S. president to visit one of #Judaism's holiest sites.
.
The historic visit is part of #Trump's efforts to highlight "the need for unity among three of the world's great religions" on his first foreign trip, senior administration officials said.
.
Trump stood alone with his hand on the wall for several moments before tucking a note between the cracks.
.
The #WesternWall is not officially recognized as Israeli territory, and the Trump administration has not been clear about whether they believe it is part of Israel.

After nearly 150 years, the show will not go on for the iconic @ringlingbros and Barnum & Bailey Circus, which folded up its Big Top for the last time Sunday night.
.
Throughout its 146 year history, the massive, traveling #circus elated crowds from small towns to big cities across America with its exotic animals, mile-long trains and death-defying feats โ€” but not without courting its fair share of controversy.
.
The show was "one of these wonderful dynamic miracles in the annals of time, and that's where it's going," said Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson. "It'll be in the memories of many people for years to come."

Oprah Winfrey is awarded an honorary degree during the @smithcollege commencement ceremony on Sunday in Northampton, Mass. @Oprah advised #SmithCollege graduates to seek fulfillment by serving others and live with intention during her address.
.
#Oprah told the graduates to "shift the paradigm to service and the rewards will come."
.
"This understanding that there is an alignment between who you are and what you do is the real, true empowerment," #OprahWinfrey said.

"Drive them out!" President Donald Trump said of terrorists to dozens of Arab leaders. "Of your places of worship, drive them out of your communities, drive them out of your Holy Land, and drive them out of this Earth!"
.
#Trump offered a message of unity Sunday as he called on the Arab world to confront extremism during a highly anticipated speech in the birthplace of #Islam.
.
The speech during the initial stop of the president's first foreign trip was a stark contrast to his previous comments on Islam. As a candidate, Trump frequently criticized the religion, saying, "I think Islam hates us" and "there's a tremendous hatred there."
.
In #Riyadh, Trump said, "This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects, or different civilizations. This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it."

Tens of thousands of people poured into the streets of #Tehran to celebrate President Hassan Rouhaniโ€™s re-election. He defeated his hardline opponent, Ebrahim Raisi, in a landslide. #Raisi, a conservative judge who supports a strict enforcement of #Sharia law, was widely backed by religious conservatives. #Rouhani has slowly expanded social freedoms since taking office in 2013 and actively courted the support of young, urban and female voters.
.
NBCโ€™s Ali Arouzi got a first-hand look at the celebrations in the streets of #Tehran. Watch our Instagram story to see more.
