Duke shuts natgas plant due to Florence floods, coal ash leak feared
Duke also said it cannot rule out the possibility that coal ash from another plant is flowing into nearby waters. Water breached the cooling lake dam at Duke's 625-megawatt natural gas L.V. Sutton plant, causing the company to shut the plant. Hurricane Florence brought several feet of rain to parts of North Carolina over a period of days, and the historic level of storm flooding is not expected to subside until next week.

Fear and fanfare as Hong Kong launches China rail link
A new high-speed rail link between Hong Kong and mainland China launched Sunday, a multi-billion dollar project that critics say gives away part of the city's territory to an increasingly assertive Beijing. Chinese security have been stationed in semi-autonomous Hong Kong for the first time at the harbourfront West Kowloon rail terminus, as part of a new "special port area" that is subject to mainland law. Despite critics' fears over passenger safety in the mainland zones, hundreds gathered at the terminus in the early morning, with the first train leaving for the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen at 7:00 am (2300 GMT Saturday).

Gunmen kill 24 Iranian revolutionary guard in an attack on military parade
Gunmen opened fire on a military parade in Iran on Saturday, killing 24 people including elite Revolutionary Guard troops, in one of the deadliest attacks in the country in recent years. Four assailants targeted a stand where Iranian officials had gathered to watch an annual event in the southwestern city of Ahvaz marking the start of the Islamic Republic's 1980-88 war with Iraq. There were reports they were dressed in Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp (IRGC) uniforms. A pan-Arab, anti-government group called the Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahvaz appeared to take responsibility for the attack, which wounded more than 50 people. Among the dead were eight IRGC servicemen, as well as women and children. Islamic State also later claimed it, but Iranian authorities deemed it not to be credible. At least 24 troops were killed on September 22 in an attack on a military parade in the southwestern province of Khuzestan Credit: AFP Ahvaz is in the centre of Khuzestan province, where there have been sporadic protests by the Sunni Arab minority in predominantly Shia Iran. Such attacks are relatively rare in Iran. However, tensions between mainly Shia Iran and mostly Sunni Saudi Arabia have surged in recent years, with the two countries supporting opposite sides in wars in Syria and Yemen and rival political parties in Iraq and Lebanon. A photojournalist takes a photo as she hits the ground after an armed attack targeting a military march Credit: Getty The Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp (IRGC) play a major role in Iran's regional interests in Iraq, Syria and Yemen. Mohammed Javad Zarif, Iran’s Foreign Minister, said the assault was the handiwork of "regional terror sponsors". “Terrorists recruited, trained, armed and paid by a foreign regime have attacked Ahvaz,” he tweeted. “Children and journos among casualties. Iran holds regional terror sponsors and their US masters accountable for such attacks.” Iranian soldier carrying an injured comrade at the scene of an attack on a military parade in the southwestern city of Ahvaz Credit: AFP The brazen attack appeared to be a direct attack on the Revolutionary Guards - the most powerful and heavily armed military force in the Islamic Republic. The IRGC have been the sword and shield of Shia clerical rule since Iran's 1979 Islamic Revolution. The Guards also play a major role in Iran's regional interests in countries such as Iraq, Syria and Yemen. Brigadier General Ramezan Sharif, a spokesman for the guards, said that the attack was launched to “overshadow the greatness of the armed forces parades [across the country]”. Injured soldiers lying on the ground Credit: AFP It also came as Tehran faces growing US pressure. President Donald Trump decided in May to pull the US out of the 2015 international nuclear deal with Tehran and reimpose sanctions in a bid to isolate the Iran. Washington has said it is ready to open talks on a new agreement to replace the accord, but Tehran has said repeatedly it cannot negotiate under the pressure of the sanctions.

By Jackson Njehia UKARA, Tanzania (Reuters) - Divers rescued a man from the wreck of an overcrowded Tanzanian ferry on Saturday, two days after it capsized on Lake Victoria killing at least two people. Bodies continued to float to the surface around the vessel, which initial estimates suggested had been carrying more than 300 people. State broadcaster TBC said late on Saturday the death toll had reached 218. Four navy divers resumed their search inside the sunken MV Nyerere early on Saturday after hearing sounds that suggested signs of life. ...

'Hotep' — community action in East New York
East New York, a residential neighborhood in the eastern section of Brooklyn, has battled poverty since the 1950s. In April 2018, I began documenting grassroots community action in response to the social problems associated with poverty — from street crime and drug addiction to gun violence. In this series, which is part of a long-term urban project I started in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, in 2012, I have been following the efforts of a local organization called ManUp Inc. Members use the Egyptian word “hotep,” which means “to be at peace,” to greet people in their community.

China summons U.S. ambassador to protest sanctions over Russia military equipment
Chinese Deputy Foreign Minister Zheng Zeguang summoned Ambassador Terry Branstad to lodge "stern representations" and protest the sanctions, the foreign ministry said. Earlier, Chinese defense ministry spokesman Wu Qian said China's decision to buy fighter jets and missile systems from Russia was a normal act of cooperation between sovereign countries, and the United States had "no right to interfere". On Thursday, the U.S. State Department imposed sanctions on China's Equipment Development Department (EED), the branch of the military responsible for weapons procurement, after it engaged in "significant transactions" with Rosoboronexport, Russia's main arms exporter.

Vietnam's President Tran Dai Quang, a former police chief known as a tough politician and committed communist with little tolerance for dissent, died Friday aged 61 after a serious illness, state media reported. Coverage on state media was sombre Friday, with a Vietnam Television anchor in dark clothing announcing the news of the leader's death, first reported by the official Vietnam News Agency. The president had sought treatment in Japan for over a year before he was checked into hospital on Thursday afternoon after contracting a "rare virus", Nguyen Quoc Trieu, in charge of the healthcare committee for top leaders, said in state media.

From this secondary screen users can select climate-control functions, turn on the heated and cooled front seats, and change the Range Rover Sport Supercharged's driving-mode settings.

Chilean archbishop seeks dismissal of sex abuse cover-up charges
(Reuters) - Attorneys for Chile's most senior cleric said on Friday they will ask a judge to drop charges he covered up sexual abuse amid a scandal that has rocked the Chilean Roman Catholic Church and prompted a major civil investigation. The ongoing church sex abuse scandal in the Andean nation has prompted Pope Francis to open an investigation that has led to the resignations of several bishops and priests. Lawyers for Ricardo Ezzati, the archbishop of Santiago, have requested more time to prepare their case after Ezzati was originally due to be questioned by a civil prosecutor last month.
