Taliban Deny Fighters Raped American Hostage and Killed Baby

Monday 14:32 GMT

The Taliban on Sunday denied an assertion by a freed Canadian hostage that his American wife had been raped during their five years of captivity and that their infant had been killed by the Haqqani Network, a brutal arm of the Afghan insurgency.

The Haqqanis are believed to be still holding Kevin King, a professor of the American University of Afghanistan who was kidnapped in Kabul in 2016; and another American, Paul Overby, whose family said the Haqqanis abducted him in 2014 after he tried to interview the group’s leader.

Pope Francis canonizes 35 new saints

Monday 10:53 GMT

The Catholic Church has 35 new saints, almost all of them martyrs from centuries past, after Pope Francis canonized them during Sunday Mass in St. Peter's Square.

Francis, who was born in Argentina and is the first pope to come from Latin America, frequently, links his calls for social justice, especially for indigenous people, to those for the defense of the environment, noting that the poor will suffer the most from the consequences of climate change.

Conservative Sebastian Kurz on track to become Austria’s next leader

Monday 17:19 GMT

The Schmutzkübel (dirt bucket) scandal, which rocked Austrian politics two weeks ago, centred on at least two Facebook sites posting Photoshopped images and video clips that accused Kurz of secretly paving the way for a new wave of immigration from Islamic countries, and of being part of the “dubious political network” of the Hungarian-American financier George Soros.

Projections on Sunday evening put the centre-right ÖVP, led by 31-year-old Sebastian Kurz, coming out top with 31.7% of vote.

Pentagon revamps program that puts immigrant recruits on path to US citizenship

Monday 16:24 GMT

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis is revamping a program that puts foreign-born recruits on a fast-track to U.S. citizenship in exchange for military service as doctors, nurses and language experts.

PENTAGON INVESTIGATORS FIND ‘SECURITY RISKS’ IN GOVERNMENT'S IMMIGRANT RECRUITMENT PROGRAM, ‘INFILTRATION’ FEARED. Defense Department investigators discovered “potential security risks” in the MAVNI program after a year-long investigation, Fox News reported exclusively in August. Sources told Fox News that MAVNI’s problems included a vetting backlog that led to enrollment of many soldiers prior to completion of their background checks, and an attendant “drift” in the program’s criteria, with MAVNI being used as a vehicle for the hiring of workers – like cooks, drivers and mechanics – who did not possess the specialized skills the program was created to exploit.

Despite clear risks, Santa Rosa neighborhood that burned down was exempt from fire regulations

Monday 16:24 GMT

Revisions of the hazard maps are in the works and will incorporate lessons from the Tubbs fire, said Dave Sapsis, Research Program Specialist with the state’s Fire and Resource Assessment Program, the unit of Cal Fire that maps fire hazard zones.

Because it was outside the officially mapped “very severe” hazard zone, more than five miles to the east, Coffey Park was exempt from regulations designed to make buildings fire resistant in high-risk areas.

Jürgen Klopp eases Liverpool’s pressing game in the search for solidity

Monday 16:24 GMT

That restricted United’s capacity to break, something about which Klopp was clearly delighted: he kept stressing after the game how United are “one of the best counterattacking sides in the world”, yet they threatened only once, on the one occasion when Henrikh Mkhitaryan had an impact, opening up the game for Romelu Lukaku’s one-two with Anthony Martial that led to United’s only shot on target.

Whether Klopp was right, given Mourinho’s set-up, to remain so cautious is a matter of interpretation – as is the issue of whether Mourinho was right to sit so deep, given Liverpool’s recent form – but it was further evidence of a general shift in Liverpool’s play this season.
