The German soccer federation will not take any action against people who displayed a banner calling for a boycott of the World Cup in Qatar during the team’s Nations League match against Italy. The federation referred to a police statement that says the demonstrators’ action is deemed to be covered by freedom of expression and “not criminally relevant.” A group of demonstrators held a huge banner shortly after the start of Tuesday's match saying “FIFA and Co. without a conscience! Boycott Qatar.” Protests against the World Cup in Qatar are common at German soccer games.

With record-high gas prices, travelers can save money on summer road trips by considering alternatives. They can plan a trip to U.S. regions with lower-cost fuel, like the Midwest or South. If travelers need to rent a car, they might find affordable options by going to a cheaper car rental location or considering a car rental alternative like car sharing. With more hotels offering electric vehicle charging, renting an electric car could be more convenient and less expensive than expected. No matter what car or region, spending on a rewards credit card, particularly one that earns extra points on gas, could help lessen the sting of road trip expenses.

Ukrainian soccer will return to the Champions League next month. Dynamo Kyiv has been drawn to play Turkish team Fenerbahçe in the second qualifying round in the club’s first competitive game since the Russian invasion started. Dynamo was among four teams in the draw for runners-up from mid-ranking leagues. It is unclear where Dynamo will play its home games. Dynamo would have to advance through three qualifying rounds to reach the 32-team group stage in September. Shakhtar Donetsk is already in the group stage because it was in first place when the league was suspended.

Protests are erupting in many Indian cities against the demolition of homes and businesses belonging to Muslims in what critics call a growing pattern of “bulldozer justice” aimed at punishing activists from the minority group. On Sunday, authorities in a northern state used a bulldozer to raze the home of a Muslim who they said was linked to protests sparked by derogatory remarks about Islam made by two officials of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu nationalist party. Bulldozers also crushed the properties of protesters in two other cities in the state. Similar incidents have been reported in other states. Prominent judges and lawyers are urging India's chief justice to hold a hearing on the demolitions, calling them an illegal extrajudicial punishment.

NATO defense ministers are meeting to discuss beefing up weapons supplies to Ukraine and Sweden and Finland's applications to join the transatlantic military alliance. Their two-day meeting in Brussels starting on Wednesday is less two weeks before a summit of NATO leaders in Madrid. Ukraine’s government has implored the West to send more and heavier weapons to help fend off Russia's invading forces. NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg says the alliance's members are “committed to continue providing the military equipment that Ukraine needs to prevail, including heavy weapons and long-range systems.” U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin is hosting a meeting of some 50 nations to discuss weapons deliveries to Ukraine.

Iran has acknowledged it plans two tests for its new solid-fueled rocket after satellite photos showed preparations at a desert launch pad previously used in the program. That's even as tensions remain high over Tehran’s rapidly advancing nuclear program. The Islamic Republic will launch its satellite-carrying Zuljanah rocket twice more after conducting a previous launch. That's according to a report Wednesday by the state-run IRNA news agency quoting Defense Ministry spokesman Ahmad Hosseini. He did not elaborate on a timeframe for the tests, nor said when the previous launch occurred. Satellite images taken Tuesday by Maxar Technologies showed preparations at a launch pad at Imam Khomeini Spaceport in Iran’s rural Semnan province.

The Russian military says it used long-range missiles to destroy a depot in the western Lviv region of Ukraine where ammunition for NATO-supplied weapons was being stored. Those strikes came as fighting raged Wednesday for the city of Sievierodonetsk in the eastern Donbas area, the key focus of Russia’s offensive in recent weeks. Meanwhile, a Russian official suggested that Russia appears intent on the destruction of its neighbor. The deputy chair of Russia’s Security Council and former president Dmitry Medvedev said: “Who said that in two years Ukraine will even exist on the map of the world?”

Israel is looking to the Biden administration to normalize relations with Saudi Arabia ahead of the American president's visit to the region next month. That's according to Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid Wednesday. Asked about his expectations on Israel-Saudi relations during Joe Biden's whirlwind trip to both countries, Lapid said he didn't want "to steal the show from the president's visit." But he added that Biden's flight plan from Israel directly to Saudi Arabia shows “there is a linkage between the visit and the ability to improve relations.” Israeli leaders have said that Israel is open to new agreements with the Saudi kingdom.

The World Health Organization is creating a new vaccine-sharing mechanism to stop the spiraling outbreak of monkeypox in more than 30 countries beyond Africa. The move could result in the U.N. health agency distributing scarce vaccine doses to rich countries that otherwise can afford them. To some health experts, the initiative potentially misses the opportunity to control monkeypox in the African countries where it’s infected people for decades. They say the program might repeat the inequity in vaccine distribution that was seen during the coronavirus pandemic. The mechanism was proposed shortly after Britain, Canada, France, Germany, the U.S. and other countries reported hundreds of monkeypox cases last month.

Egypt, Israel, and the European Union have signed a deal to increase liquified natural gas sales to EU countries, who aim to reduce dependence on supply from Russia as the war in Ukraine drags on. The deal, stamped Wednesday in a five-star Cairo hotel, will see Israel sending more gas via Egypt, which has facilities to liquify it for export via sea, European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen said. Last year, the European Union imported roughly 40% of its gas from Russia, and due to that has had difficulty imposing sanctions on Russia over its ongoing invasion of Ukraine.

Indonesian President Joko Widodo has announced a Cabinet reshuffle, replacing key economic ministers amid a national cooking oil shortage and rising food prices. Zulkifli Hasan, the chairman of a political party that joined the ruling coalition last year, was tapped as Indonesia’s new trade minister on Wednesday. Hasan held ministerial positions in previous governments and vowed to tackle the cooking oil shortage, making it available “anywhere at an affordable price." A cooking oil crisis that was initially triggered by the Russia-Ukraine war shook up both domestic politics and the global supply chain after the government in April banned all exports of crude palm oil, a key ingredient in cooking oils, amid student protests against skyrocketing food prices.
