On this episode of Global National: A gunman opened fire at a Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Ill., near Chicago, killing six people and injuring dozens more. The celebrations quickly turned into chaos, and now police have taken a 22-year-old person of interest into custody in America’s latest mass shooting. Mike Armstrong reports on the incident and what witnesses saw.

In Canada, the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) is about to begin its annual meeting in Vancouver under a cloud of uncertainty. National Chief RoseAnne Archibald has been suspended over allegations of bullying and harassment, which she claims are a “manufactured distraction” from corruption within the organization. Now, as Neetu Garcha reports, Archibald has been removed from the agenda for opening day.

Ahead of his trip to Canada this month, Pope Francis has given a rare interview. How he addressed rumours about his health, his future at the Vatican, and his thoughts on some current events – Eric Sorensen explains.

Plus, Russia is declaring victory after capturing the last remaining part of the Luhansk region in eastern Ukraine. Ukrainian soldiers have now pulled out of the strategic city of Lysychansk, as Russian forces move one step closer to capturing the entire Donbas region. As Redmond Shannon explains, it’s also a major comedown from Russian President Vladimir Putin’s initial goals for the invasion.

And finally, Egypt’s capital is undergoing a major transformation toward modernization. As a result, Cairo’s historic houseboats will be demolished. So what does that mean for residents? As Mike Drolet reports, they’re praying for a miracle on the Nile.

In This Story: Vatican

Vatican City, officially the Vatican City State, is the Holy See’s independent city state, an enclave within Rome, Italy. The Vatican City State, also known as The Vatican, became independent from Italy with the Lateran Treaty (1929), and it is a distinct territory under “full ownership, exclusive dominion, and sovereign authority and jurisdiction” of the Holy See, itself a sovereign entity of international law, which maintains the city state’s temporal, diplomatic, and spiritual independence. With an area of 49 hectares (121 acres) and a population of about 825, it is the smallest sovereign state in the world by both area and population.

As governed by the Holy See, the Vatican City State is an ecclesiastical or sacerdotal-monarchical state (a type of theocracy) ruled by the pope who is the bishop of Rome and head of the Catholic Church. The highest state functionaries are all Catholic clergy of various national origins. After the Avignon Papacy (1309–1437), the popes have mainly resided at the Apostolic Palace within what is now Vatican City, although at times residing instead in the Quirinal Palace in Rome or elsewhere.

Within the Vatican City are religious and cultural sites such as St. Peter’s Basilica, the Sistine Chapel, and the Vatican Museums. They feature some of the world’s most famous paintings and sculptures. The unique economy of Vatican City is supported financially by donations from the faithful, by the sale of postage stamps and souvenirs, fees for admission to museums, and sales of publications.
