Thousands of protesters have marched through Haiti's capital and other major cities, blocking roads and shutting down businesses to demand that Prime Minister Ariel Henry step down and call for a better quality of life.

Demonstrators are saying things in Haiti have gotten out of control.

Violence and kidnappings in Port-au-Prince and nearby areas have surged in recent months, with warring gangs killing hundreds of civilians as they grow more powerful.

Poverty has also deepened and inflation has reached 29 percent.

Pfizer is asking U.S. health regulators to authorize an updated COVID-19 vaccine booster.

AP Washington correspondent Sagar Meghani reports.

The FDA has told vaccine makers to update their shots to target the super contagious omicron variants.

Pfizer shots for those 12 and older could start in weeks with quick approval and Moderna is expected to seek the OK soon for its updated adult boosters.

The vaccines currently being given still offer strong protection against severe disease and death, but they target the virus strain that spread in early 2020 and no longer protect nearly as well against infection.

The new combo doses are essentially a second generation vaccine.

The White House says it'll be key for people to get the new shots this fall and winter.

The new Webb Space Telescope is showing Jupiter's auroras and tiny moons.

The AP's Ed Donahue reports.

Photos released by NASA and taken last month showed Jupiter's northern in southern lights and swirling polar haze.

There were a lot of images that stood out, including Jupiter's great red spot, a storm big enough to swallow Earth.

A wide field picture shows the faint rings around Jupiter as well as two tiny moons against a glittering background of galaxies.

Planetary astronomer Imke de Pater at the University of California, Berkeley, who helped lead the observations, says "to be honest" they didn't expect the images "to be this good."

The research team says the infrared images from one million miles away were artificially colored in blue, white, green, yellow and orange to make the features stand out.
