FILE - In this March 19, 2013 file photo, Justin Bieber performs during a concert at Bercy Arena in Paris. Bieber has apologized to those he offended by visiting Japan's Yasukuni war shrine the week of April 20, 2014, saying he was misled to see it as only a place of prayer. The Shinto shrine in Tokyo honors 2.5 million war dead, including 14 convicted war criminals. China and South Korea in particular see Yasukuni as a symbol of Japan's past militarism and see visits to it as a lack of understanding or remorse over wartime history. (AP Photo/Francois Mori, File)TOKYO (AP) — Justin Bieber apologized Wednesday to those he offended by visiting a Japanese war shrine, saying he thought it was a beautiful site and only a place of prayer.

A mine exploded in the northern Malian town of Kidal on Wednesday, seriously injuring a United Nations peacekeeper but not affecting a delegation of visiting diplomats, a U.N. spokesman said. There was no immediate claim for the blast but al Qaeda-linked Islamists who seized northern Mali in 2012 have carried out a series of insurgent-style attacks since they were scattered across the Sahara by a French-led offensive last year. Olivier Salgado, spokesman for the U.N. mission, known as MINUSMA, said a U.N. vehicle struck a mine near Kidal's airport but the vehicle was not part of the security detail for the Bamako-based diplomats visiting the town, a flashpoint for Tuareg separatism.
