A devastating fire raced through buildings in an old part of Bangladesh's capital and killed at least 69 people, officials and witnesses said Thursday. About 50 other people were injured and the fire in Dhaka was mostly under control after more than nine hours of frantic efforts by firefighters. The Chawkbazar area where the fire was burning is crammed with buildings separated by narrow alleys. The neighborhood is a mix of residential and commercial, with buildings that commonly have shops, restaurants or warehouses on the ground floors. The blaze started late Wednesday night in one building but quickly spread to others, fire department Director General Brig. Gen. Ali Ahmed said. The death toll could still rise as the condition of some of the injured people was critical, said Samanta Lal Sen, head of a burn unit of the Dhaka Medical College Hospital.

President Donald Trump says he expects legal challenges to his decision to declare a national emergency to erect barriers between the U.S. and Mexico but says he'll be vindicated. Trump announced Friday that he has signed the appropriate paperwork to declare an emergency on the border so he can build the wall. In a sing-songy tone of voice, Trump then described how the decision will be challenged and work its way through the courts, including up to the U.S. Supreme Court. Critics have accused Trump of abusing his authority. Trump says he shouldn't be sued but predicted "we will be very successful in court." He adds: "Sadly, we'll be sued and sadly it will go through a process and happily we'll win."
