Kamala Harris' plane forced to return to US soil following technical issue

Saturday marked the 74th day that Harris has neither traveled to USA border communities nor held a news conference in connection with her duties as manager of the administration's response to the border crisis.

She said: "It is a technical issue".

A plane carrying USA vice president Kamala Harris on her first foreign trip was forced to return to base after just 30 minutes following a "technical difficulty". "We all said a little prayer, but we're good", said Harris, per AP.

After the earlier drama, spokesperson Symone Sanders told reporters travelling with Ms Harris: "It is a technical issue".

Iran's biggest navy ship sinks after fire in Gulf of Oman
A fire broke out on the IS Kharg while the ship was near Iran's port of Jask, southeast of Tehran , according to the Iranian Navy. In a later statement, the Navy said that efforts for extinguishing the fire have been fruitless and Khark vessel has sunk.

The print pooler on board Air Force Two reported that "there was an unusual noise that came from the landing gear when we took off but the landing back at JBA was completely normal".

When the plane returned, Harris exited and flashed a double thumbs up to the press, and said, "I'm good".

Harris will visit Guatemala and Mexico this week, bringing a message of hope to a region hammered by Covid-19 and which is the source of most of the undocumented migrants seeking entry to the United States.
