We start today with Hungary’s investigation into a deadly boat crash, President Trump’s tariff threats and Turkey’s language of whistles.
Hope is nearly gone for the 21 people still missing after the Mermaid, a sightseeing boat carrying South Korean tourists, capsized on the Danube River in Budapest on Wednesday night. At least seven people died.
Late Thursday, the Hungarian police said they had taken the captain of the much larger ship that clipped the Mermaid, identified as Yuri C., from Odessa, Ukraine, into custody and had formally requested his arrest.
It was the deadliest boating accident in Hungary in 75 years, and a particular blow to South Korea, which lost 304 people, including 250 high school students, in the Sewol ferry disaster in 2014.
Details: The boat was clipped from behind by a larger sightseeing ship and began sinking within seconds. Passengers were thrown into the fast-moving current, and many of those rescued weren’t wearing life jackets.
What’s next? A criminal investigation is underway. Hungary’s prime minister, Viktor Orban, said some 200 divers and medical professionals had been sent to the site. South Korea is sending an 18-member rescue team.
The country sprang back into election mode on Thursday after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s staggering failure to form a government by midnight Wednesday.
Mr. Netanyahu is Israel’s first prime minister-elect to be unable to form a coalition after an election, seriously denting the aura of invincibility he has cultivated over a decade in office.
Recriminations and finger-pointing over the political crisis foreshadow a contentious campaign. Here’s a guide to the issues surrounding the new elections, set for Sept. 17.
At issue: A military draft law that would have conscripted some ultra-Orthodox Jews divided two parts of Mr. Netanyahu’s right-wing alliance — the secular ultranationalist faction and the ultra-Orthodox parties.
What’s next? Mr. Netanyahu will remain in power until the next vote. Uncertainty over the country’s leadership could hinder the Trump administration’s Middle East peace plan.
The president said he would impose a 5 percent tax on all imported goods beginning June 10.
If Mexico did not stop the flow of undocumented immigrants across the southern U.S. border, he said on Twitter, the tax would “gradually increase.”
An across-the-board tariff on all Mexican goods would exact a serious toll on American consumers and corporations, and is likely to generate significant opposition among businesses. It also jeopardizes the revision of the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico, a major goal of the administration.
Numbers: In a presidential statement that followed the tweets, he said that tariffs would be raised to 10 percent on July 1 “if the crisis persists,” and then by an additional 5 percent each month for three months. They would remain at 25 percent until Mexico acted, he said.
Markets: The Mexican peso weakened against the American dollar, while shares of Japanese automakers fell because many of them have manufacturing facilities in Mexico. Futures that track American stocks suggested Wall Street would open lower on Friday.
That was Chancellor Angela Merkel speaking today at Harvard, where she received three standing ovations and paused more than a dozen times for applause in a speech that called for a rejection of isolationism and nationalism.
While she never mentioned President Trump by name, her speech laid out a worldview that punctuated her deep differences both with his administration and the forces of right-wing populism and extremism that have emerged in Europe and elsewhere.
And she did it on America’s most prominent academic stage.
Key points: The chancellor, who has said she will leave politics in 2021, talked about her experience growing up in East Berlin during the Cold War and then seeing the Berlin Wall come down. She also touched on the threat of climate change.
Context: Ms. Merkel was there to get an honorary doctor of laws degree.If you have time this weekend, this is worth itHow a star is made
This week is The Times Magazine’s annual New York issue, which is devoted this year to live performance. We picked 12 artists — including, from above left, the opera singer Ying Fang, the rapper Princess Nokia and the subway dancer Ikeem Jones — to demonstrate what it takes to light up the stage.
(This feature is best experienced with the sound on.)
Uber: In its first earnings report listing its shares, the ride-hailing giant posted slowing growth and a steep loss of more than billion for the first three months of the year, compounding its bumpy start as a public company.
France: The main suspect in the bombing last week in Lyon has told investigators that he had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State, a French judicial official said.
Denmark: Claus von Bülow, the Danish-born man-about-society who in two trials was convicted and later acquitted of twice trying to murder his heiress wife — placing him at the center of one of the most sensational social dramas of the 1980s — died on Saturday at his home in London. He was 92.
Climate change: In the past few seasons, climbers scaling Mount Everest have found the frozen bodies of the people who never made it home poking out of the ground — a haunting reminder of climate change. The warming climate has reshaped the entire Himalayan landscape.
Russia: President Trump acknowledged for the first time that Russia helped “me to get elected,” and then quickly retracted the idea.
U.S.: The White House asked the Navy to hide a destroyer named after Senator John McCain during President Trump’s visit to Japan this week, White House and military officials said Wednesday. Navy officials said they didn’t abide by the request, and Mr. Trump said he hadn’t known about it.
Italy: Support for the country’s once-prominent Five Star movement has cratered as Matteo Salvini, the interior minister, dominates Italian politics.
Snapshot: Above, the beginning of the protests in Tiananmen Square in April 1989. See our collection of photos, hidden from view for decades, taken by a student witness.
Britain: When John Cleese, the comedian and Monty Python star, questioned London’s Englishness in a Twitter post, the city’s defenders rose up on social media, saying it was racially motivated. Mr. Cleese rejected accusations that his remarks were racist.
French Open results: Here are today’s results for the women and the men.
“Bird language”: Long before cellphones existed, Turkish farmers communicated with one another using whistles of varied-pitch frequencies and melodic lines.
What we’re reading: This article in Curbed, recommended by Jennifer Jett, our Hong Kong-based digital editor. “The bicycle was liberating for women when it was introduced in the late 19th century,” she tells us. “But they are underrepresented in cycling. So in some places, city planners are trying to accommodate riding with children or groceries — presumably, better for everybody.”Now, a break from the news
Cook: For those who love fried chicken, this Persian-inspired recipe will quickly become a favorite.
Watch: Asian-American couples don’t get to have sex in Hollywood movies. Randall Park and Ali Wong wrote “Always Be My Maybe” anyway, and it lands on Netflix today.
Listen: Steve Lacy is largely a one-man studio band on his debut album. The album’s grand statement is “Like Me,” a nine-minute suite about coming to terms with his bisexuality.
Go: In London, three new theater productions, including “Death of a Salesman,” explore questions of race and skin color in different ways.
Smarter Living: You can increase the efficiency of your household energy use by boiling water efficiently. A physicist at the University of California, San Diego, found kettles on gas stovetops least inefficient, microwaves middling and electric kettles best at converting energy to heat. But only boil as much water as you need and monitor the boiling point, so you can manually shut it off.
And if you have a neighborhood-watch app, here’s how to put the crime alerts into perspective.
“The Weekly,” a new TV show from The New York Times, is premiering Sunday on FX and Monday on Hulu. The half-hour show tells one big story every week, featuring different reporters as they investigate the most important stories on their beats.
It’s not easy.
“We’re basically plugging really excellent world-class television journalism, which is what the production side provides, into this gigantic, world-beating news machine that is the New York Times newsroom,” Jason Stallman, the show’s editor, said.
That involves meeting with journalists across the paper, staying ahead of what they are reporting on and asking them to take time away from their other projects to film.
Interviewing for a narrative documentary takes hours, requires the right setting and involves a camera crew. Add to that preproduction (the research and planning stage), dozens of hours of filming, then editing and revising, and the process for one episode — there are 30 in the first season — can take months.
“It takes an enormous amount of planning, and it takes a huge pipeline of stories, and it takes the cooperation and participation of reporters and editors around the world,” Sam Dolnick, an assistant managing editor, said. “But we’ve got all that.”

That’s it for this briefing. See you next time.
