Bethlehem is enjoying its busiest Christmas season on record, the Palestinian Ministry of Tourism said on Monday, with hotels in the birthplace of Jesus almost fully booked for the holiday. Bethlehem store owners also said they were benefiting from a surge of visitors to Israel in its 70th anniversary year.

Chinese phone and internet network gear company Huawei Technologies Ltd. says it expects a "just conclusion" from a Canadian court on whether to grant bail to its chief financial office after she was arrested earlier this month. China has vehemently protested the arrest of Meng Wanzhou, daughter of Huawei's founder, and demanded the U.S. withdraw charges that led Canadian officials to detain her while she was changing planes in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The U.S. Supreme Court declined its first opportunity to rule on abortion since the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The news on Monday may come as some consolation to abortion rights advocates who opposed Kavanaugh, fearing that the judge — who was replacing moderate retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy — would immediately work to restrict access to abortions. The cases, Gee v. Planned Parenthood of Gulf Coast and Andersen v. Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri, both questioned whether Medicaid recipients have the right to challenge a state’s decision to block Planned Parenthood from receiving federal funding.

The Chicago Teachers Union said more than 500 teachers will return to classes Monday at Acero's 15 schools with 7,500 predominantly Latino students. Robert Bloch, general counsel for the union, said that since the schools' enrollment is "overwhelmingly low-income Latino," the union felt it was necessary to have provisions to protect students, their families and teachers who may be living in the country illegally.

A few hours later, May opted to postpone Tuesday’s planned vote amid concerns a huge defeat could plunge the U.K. into unprecedented political chaos, according to people familiar with the situation.
