Five stories to know for June 9: Biden's UK trip, tech bill, attack on Muslim family, Manchin and elephants in China 1. U.S. President Joe Biden departs for Britain on his first trip abroad since taking office in an eight-day mission to rebuild trans-Atlantic ties. Biden will make his first stop at the seaside village of St. Ives in Cornwall where he will participate in the G7 summit. 2. The U.S. Senate voted 68-32 to approve a sweeping package of legislation intended to boost the country's ability to compete with Chinese technology. 3. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau promised to redouble efforts to fight far-right groups two days after a hate-motivated attack that killed four members of a Muslim family in the city of London, Ontario. 4. Seven U.S. civil rights leaders met with Senator Joe Manchin to urge the Democrat to drop his opposition to a sweeping election reform bill backed by his party, but the West Virginian emerged from the virtual meeting unmoved. 5. A roaming herd of 15 wild elephants is on the move again after resting for a day in a patch of forest on the outskirts of the city of Kunming in southwest China, resuming a year-long, 500-kilometre trek that has captured the public's imagination. #JoeBiden #G7 #UK #Senate #Tech #China #Canada #MuslimFamily #London #Ontario #JustinTrudeau #JoeManchin #CivilRights #Democrats #Republicans #Elephants #News #Reuters Subscribe: http://smarturl.it/reuterssubscribe Reuters brings you the latest business, finance and breaking news video from around the globe.
