WASHINGTON (REUTERS) - A team of entomologists in full-body protective gear vacuumed Asian giant hornets out of a tree in Washington state on Saturday (Oct 24) , eradicating the first nest of the so-called murder hornets found in the United States. The state's agricultural department said it had spent weeks searching for and trapping the hornets, which attack honeybee hives and could pose a threat to humans, because they can sting repeatedly with venom that is stronger than a honeybee's. The state's entomologists succeeded by attaching radio trackers to three hornets they had trapped earlier in the week, one of which they followed to the nest, located in a tree near Blaine, Washington, on Thursday. They returned on Saturday to make the extraction. "Got 'em. Vacuumed out several #AsianGiantHornets from a tree cavity near Blaine this morning," the agriculture department said on Twitter, adding that more details would be provided at a news conference on Monday. The stinging hornet, the world's largest, can grow as large as 2 1/2 inches (6.4 cm) in length and is native to Southeast Asia, China and Taiwan. It was first discovered in the United States in December by a homeowner

UNITED STATES (AFP) - An international treaty banning nuclear weapons has been ratified by a 50th country, a UN official said Saturday (Oct 24) , allowing the text proponents call historic to enter into force after 90 days. While nuclear-armed powers have not signed up to the treaty, activists who have pushed for its enactment hold out hope that it will nonetheless prove to be more than symbolic and have a gradual deterrent effect. Honduras became the 50th country to ratify the treaty. "Today is a victory for humanity, and a promise of a safer future," Peter Maurer, president of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), said in a statement. Other NGOs also welcomed the news, including the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), a coalition that won the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize for its key role in bringing the treaty to fruition. "Honduras just ratified the Treaty as the 50th state, triggering entry into force and making history," ICAN said in a tweet. The 75th anniversary of the nuclear bomb attacks on Nagasaki and Hiroshima, marked in August, saw a wave of countries ratify the treaty
