US President Donald Trump announced on Friday a 25% tariff on $50bn of imports from China, escalating a trade row with the Asian powerhouse just a day after Beijing warned Washington that it was preparing to retaliate.

Just north of Richland is one of state's most endangered historic places
A building made of Columbia River cobble stones, surrounded by a fence topped with barbed wire, has been named one of Washington state's most endangered historic places. The long warehouse along the Columbia River north of Richland was once owned by Paul and Mary Bruggemann, one of the most successful farming families in the region, according to the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation. But in 1943 the family was given 30 days to leave the land Paul had purchased in 1937. They were told the government needed it for a secret World War II project.
