Styles remarked that moments like that didn't happen to people like him very often, but some viewed the comment as white privilege. Beyoncé, they noted, had lost the honor four times already to white artists.

Officials say Russian shelling has damaged a hospital and apartment buildings in Ukraine ahead of what Kyiv says is a brewing Moscow offensive around the anniversary of its invasion. Authorities said Tuesday that shelling in the northeastern town of Vovchansk caused multiple fires, including at its two-story municipal hospital. Vovchansk is in the Kharkiv region, which was occupied by Russia after its full-scale invasion began on Feb. 24 and subsequently retaken by Ukraine during a late summer counteroffensive.

A former London police officer has been sentenced to life in prison with a minimum term of 30 years for raping and sexually assaulting a dozen women over a 17-year period. Metropolitan Police officer David Carrick admitted last month he was a serial rapist in what prosecutors described as one of the most shocking cases involving a serving police officer. Carrick pleaded guilty to 49 offenses including 24 counts of rape and charges including assault, attempted rape and false imprisonment between 2003 and 2020. At sentencing on Tuesday, Justice Bobbie Cheema-Grubb said the 48-year-old “took monstrous advantage of women” behind a public appearance of propriety and trustworthiness. The Metropolitan Police has apologized to victims.

Ohio's governor says it's unclear when evacuated residents might be able to return home to the area where officials released and burned toxic chemicals from the wreckage of a derailed train. Residents near the site close to the Pennsylvania line were ordered to leave before the controlled release Monday because of the risk of death or serious injury. Gov. Mike DeWine told “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday morning that officials are closely monitoring the air quality outside the immediate area and that it's “so far, so good.” He says sensors will be put inside the immediate area Tuesday to check the air there.
