Five things you need to know

1. Musk says he would reverse 'stupid' decision to ban Trump from Twitter

Elon Musk has said he will lift Donald Trump's Twitter ban if he is successful in his bid to buy the social media platform. Musk said the decision to remove the then-head of the US government from Twitter was "morally wrong" and "stupid."

2. Slight easing of inflation in US

Inflation has eased slightly in the US, but still remains unusually high. The rate of price increases in April was 8.3 per cent, the Labor Department said, down from 8.5 per cent in March.

3. Israel blamed after journalist killed in Palestine

4. Baby formula shortage in US worrying parents
