President Donald Trump says he'll make a final decision on whether the U.S. will stay in the Paris climate agreement next week.
Trump's surprise announcement, in the form of a tweet on the final day of his lengthy international trip, comes after Trump declined to commit to staying in a sweeping climate deal, refusing to give into intense international pressure.
Earlier Saturday, the other six members of the G-7, a group of some of the world's wealthiest nations, voted to abide by the Paris climate agreement, according to a person familiar with the talks. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the matter before the formal announcement.

Police arrested two more suspects Saturday over the deadly Manchester concert bombing, as the UK's security threat level was reduced from "critical" to "severe."
Prime Minister Theresa May said Saturday that a "severe" threat level meant another attack was highly likely and that citizens should remain vigilant. But the independent body that sets the country's threat level determined, following a "significant amount of police activity" that the threat level was no longer critical.

The Washington Post reports that Russia's ambassador to the U.S. has told his superiors that he and Jared Kushner discussed setting up a secret communications channel between the Trump transition team and the Kremlin in December.
The Post report cites anonymous U.S. officials who were briefed on intelligence reports on intercepted Russian communications.
The newspaper says Ambassador Sergei Kislyak told his superiors that Kushner proposed using Russian diplomatic facilities for their discussions, apparently to make them more difficult to monitor. The Post says Kislyak was reportedly "taken aback" by the suggestion.

Several people killed in Monday's Manchester concert bombing have been identified so far by authorities, schools or their families. They range in age from 8 years old to a Polish couple who had come to pick up their daughters.
Twenty-two people died in the explosion outside an Ariana Grande concert in the large British city, while 119 people were wounded in the city's worst attack, authorities said.
Georgina Callander, 18, was the first victim to be identified, as her former Manchester-area school, Bishop Rawstorne Church of England Academy, identified her.
"She was academically a very gifted student, very hard-working. Just lovely to speak to," deputy headteacher Peter Rawlinson said.
Medical officials said 12 children under the age of 16 were among those injured in the suicide bombing attack at a pop concert in England's second-largest city.
The children were among those people taken to hospitals after the explosion at Manchester Arena Monday night, where hundreds of teenagers and youngsters were attending an Ariana Grande concert.

The case could be a major test for the young administration and for a court that has its 5-4 conservative majority restored with the confirmation of Trump nominee Neil Gorsuch as the ninth justice.
