Nearly 4,000 people were evacuated on Monday from areas around Guatemala's Fuego volcano, which began violently erupting overnight, the country's disaster agency Conred said. The volcano spewed out dangerous flows of fast-moving clouds of hot ash, lava and gas early Monday and more than 2,000 people had taken refuge in shelters so far, officials from the agency told reporters.

Trump lawyers said the answers only cover events before Trump became president and Russian-related topics. There were no responses to questions related to his time as president or whether Trump tried to impede an investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election by firing FBI director James Comey. The president’s legal team doesn’t expect to answer any additional questions from Mueller beyond a few follow-ups, though they have no assurances from Mueller that he won’t pursue further queries, Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said.

Saudi king urges action against Iran, backs Yemen peace
The king's annual remarks to the Shura Council, a top governmental advisory body, were his first public comments since the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2, which caused a global outcry. King Salman, who did not mention the Khashoggi affair, condemned the actions of Iran, its rival for influence in the region, including in the conflicts in Syria, Iraq and Yemen. "The international community has to work to put an end to the Iranian nuclear program and stop its activities that threaten security and stability." The king said Riyadh supported U.N. efforts to end the conflict in Yemen, where a Saudi-backed coalition has been battling Iran-aligned Houthi rebels for nearly four years to restore the internationally-recognized government.

Ghosn Arrest Is the Last Thing Macron Needs

The Renault chairman’s arrest in Tokyo yesterday was a gut-punch in Paris, where the administration had no clue the global face of France Inc. was under suspicion. Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire is scrambling to mitigate the economic risks – Renault’s crucial alliance with Nissan is weakened as a result, and that poses a threat to jobs and investment in France.

Pyongyang blew up 10 guard posts in the Demilitarized Zone Tuesday as the two Koreas pursue a reconciliation drive, even while denuclearisation talks stall between the US and the North. The move is one of the steps agreed during the Pyongyang summit between the South's President Moon Jae-in and the North's leader Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang in September. The North told the South that it would blow up the 10 facilities almost simultaneously, Seoul's defence ministry said, adding that Southern soldiers "observed and confirmed the guard posts were completely ruined at the announced time".

Chicago hospital shooting: Gunman dead after killing three, including police officer
At least three people, including a police officer, were killed at a Chicago hospital on Monday during a shooting rampage that began with an argument in the car park. The violence only ended when police engaged in a shootout with the gunman inside Mercy Hospital. "We have four deceased individuals: police officer, two female staff employees at the hospital, and the offender," police Superintendent Eddie Johnson told journalists. The gunman killed the first victim - a woman who was in a "domestic relationship" with him - during an argument in the car park, then fired at police when they got to the hospital, and ran inside, Mr Johnson said. Additional police - including SWAT officers - arrived at the scene, and "engaged the offender for several minutes in the hospital, with gunshots being fired by the offender and by the police," he said. During the shootout, the gunman killed a second woman when she emerged from a lift, Mr Johnson said. The shooter was also fatally wounded, but it was unclear if he killed himself or was killed by police. The first victim died during an argument in the car park Credit: Scott Olson/Getty Images North America Officer Samuel Jimenez, who joined the Chicago police force last year, died during the gun fight, officials said. The 28-year-old was married with children and the second Chicago officer killed in the line of duty this year. "There’s no doubt in my mind that all of those officers who responded were heroes and they saved a lot of lives, because we just don't know how much damage he (the gunman) was prepared to do," Mr Johnson said. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said: "This tears at the soul of our city. It is the face and consequence of evil." Patients described being alarmed by the sound of gunshots outside Mercy Hospital and seeing a man apparently walking with a woman in the car park before shooting her three times in the chest. "Once she fell to the ground, he stood over her and shot her three more times," bystander James Gray told reporters, adding that the attack played out "like a movie scene." TV footage showed terrified patients and staff filing out of the hospital into a car park with their hands in the air after officers flooded the area. Police and firefighters salute an ambulance carrying the body of Officer Samuel Jimenez Credit: Armando L. Sanchez/ Chicago Tribune Patient Hector Avitia told the local CBS television affiliate he was with his wife waiting for test results when he saw a gunman dressed in black fire on someone on the ground several times in the car park. "Then almost immediately, an officer was already coming in an SUV, and (the assailant) exchanged fire at them and then reloaded and shot the person on the ground again," another witness said. "And then he made his way into the hospital and more shots were fired." The shooting followed a series of recent high-profile gun rampages that have fuelled calls for gun control measures in a country plagued by gun violence. Less than two weeks earlier, a gunman killed 12 people in a California music bar packed with college students. That came after the worst anti-Semitic attack in modern US history, when a gunman opened fire on congregants at a synagogue in the US city of Pittsburgh on October 27. Samuel Jimenez died responding to the incident Bypassers alerted to the latest incident spoke of hearing between six and nine gunshots that initially sounded like construction noise. "I am scared as hell. I have never been so scared, I hear of shootings going on every day at people's workplaces, but not where I work at," an employee of the hospital's family clinic told the ABC affiliate. Mercy, founded in 1852, has locations throughout Chicago and provides outpatient treatment and acute inpatient care, boasting doctors who are leaders in their field. Another hospital employee quoted by the Chicago Tribune said she was in her office when a notice came over a public address system telling those in the hospital to lock their doors. "I don't know what happened," the unnamed employee told the Tribune. "They told us to run, so we did." Gun murders per 100,000 residents Chicago has in recent years earned an unwelcome distinction for its violence. From 2015 to 2017 the city registered nearly 1,900 murders - a period during which the next-closest city, Baltimore, registered around 1,000. However, the city is not in the top ten for murders nationwide, per capita. St. Louis in Missouri has had the nation's highest murder rate since 2014, with 66.1 murders per 100,000 people in 2017, according to the FBI’s most recent yearly statistics, released in September. It was followed by Baltimore (55.8 per 100,000), Detroit (39.8 per 100,000), New Orleans (39.5 per 100,000) and Baton Rouge, Louisiana (38.3 per 100,000). Chicago ranked 14th among cities with at least 100,000 people in 2017. Its 653 murders, measured against a population of more than 2.7 million, translated to a murder rate of 24.1 homicides per 100,000. That was less than half the rate in St. Louis and Baltimore and below the rates of cities including Cleveland; Memphis, Tennessee; and Newark, New Jersey.

Washington Post Publisher Blasts Trump’s Response to Khashoggi Murder
The publisher of the Washington Post blasted President Trump’s response to the Saudi-state-sponsored assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi on Tuesday. “President Trump’s response to the brutal murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi is a betrayal of long-established American values of respect for human rights and the expectation of trust and honesty in our strategic relationships,” publisher Fred Ryan said in a statement released Tuesday. Ryan’s reaction came just hours after Trump released a statement indicating he would not pursue further punitive measures against Saudi Arabia beyond the sanctions imposed earlier this month against 17 individuals believed to have been involved in Khashoggi’s assassination at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
