August 1, 2022: Pelosi's Asia tour doesn't mention Taiwan, Ukraine grain ship leaves port, Kentucky floods, Kosovo, McKinney Fire

1. U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi starts a tour of four Asian countries on Sunday, her office said, without mentioning Taiwan amid intense speculation she might visit the self-ruled island claimed by China.

2. A ship carrying grain left the Ukrainian port of Odesa for Lebanon on Monday under a safe passage agreement, Ukrainian and Turkish officials said, the first departure since the Russian invasion blocked shipping through the Black Sea five months ago.

3. Floods unleashed by torrential rains in eastern Kentucky have killed at least 28 people, including four children, Governor Andy Beshear said on Sunday as authorities worked to provide food and shelter for thousands of displaced residents.

4. Kosovo's government began issuing extra documents to Serbian citizens crossing into its territory, as Serbs living in the north of the country who oppose the decision blockaded roads leading to two border crossings.

5. The fast-moving McKinney Fire in northern California near the Oregon border forced 2,000 residents to evacuate and has destroyed homes and critical infrastructure since it broke out on Friday.
