U.S. Senator Menendez calls for arming Ukraine

Senator Robert Menendez, Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, called on Sunday for the United States to arm Ukraine in its effort to repel what he called a Russian invasion. “We … should be providing the Ukrainians with the types of defensive weapons that will impose a cost upon (Russian President Vladimir) Putin for further aggression,” the New Jersey Democrat told CNN’s “State of the Union” program from Kiev. He said the European Union, NATO and the United States should work together to arm Kiev, which has been fighting Russian-backed rebels in eastern Ukraine for several month.

WHO: Senegal Ebola case ‘a top priority emergency’

In this photo taken on Friday, Aug. 29, 2014, a health worker measures a patient's temperature at the Connaught Hospital, which has suffered the loss of medical workers in the past from the Ebola virus, in Freetown, Sierra Leone. Dr. Sheik Humarr Khan was one of those on the front lines of the Ebola outbreak. The tireless Khan was jovial but forceful, doling out praise and criticism to junior doctors at his hospital. But Khan became infected and died, and so have at least 120 other medical workers in Sierra Leone and in three other countries, creating immediate and long-term impacts in a region that already had an understaffed and under equipped health care system. (AP Photo/ Michael Duff)DAKAR, Senegal (AP) — The effort to contain Ebola in Senegal is "a top priority emergency," the World Health Organization said Sunday, as the government continued tracing everyone who came in contact with a Guinean student who has tested positive for the deadly disease in the capital, Dakar.

U.S., foreign fighters in Syria pose ‘very serious threat’ to U.S.: lawmaker

Hundreds of U.S., British and Canadian citizens who have trained with Islamic State fighters trying to carve out their own state in Iraq and Syria pose a “very serious threat” to the United States, a top Republican lawmaker said Sunday. Representative Mike Rogers, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, urged the Obama administration to aggressively prosecute U.S. He said an attack on the Jewish museum in Brussels in May had shown a new push by extremist groups to carry out attacks on Western targets, and growing efforts to recruit backers on social media. “I’m very concerned because we don’t know every single person who has gone and trained and learned how to fight,” Rogers told “Fox News Sunday.” The United States carried out three air strikes on Saturday against Islamic State fighters near the besieged Shi’ite town of Amerli in northern Iraq and airdropped more than hundred additional bundles of humanitarian aid to civilians trapped there, the Pentagon said.

Iraq breaks months-long jihadist siege

It is the biggest offensive success for the Iraqi government since militants led by the Sunni Islamic State (IS) jihadist group overran large areas of five provinces in June, sweeping security forces aside. The breakthrough came as America carried out limited strikes in the area, the first time it has expanded its more than three-week air campaign against militants outside of Iraq’s north. Aircraft from several countries also dropped humanitarian aid to Amerli. UN Iraq envoy Nickolay Mladenov had warned that they faced a “massacre” by the besieging militants.

Aftershock hits California’s Napa Valley

(Reuters) – California’s Napa Valley, the site of a strong and damaging earthquake a week ago, was shaken by a small aftershock early on Sunday.

HK activists promise civil disobedience campaign

A Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) soldier stands guard at the entrance to the PLA's Hong Kong Garrison headquarters in Hong Kong on August 29, 2014Hong Kong democracy activists vowed Sunday to embark on an "era of civil disobedience" including mass sit-ins after China announced rules giving it control over candidates in the city's next leadership election. The standing committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), China's rubber-stamp parliament, decided that the next chief executive will be elected by popular vote in 2017, but candidates must each be backed by more than half the members of a 1,200-strong "broadly representative nominating committee". Democracy advocates in the semi-autonomous Chinese city say this means Beijing will be able to ensure a sympathetic slate of candidates and exclude opponents. The pro-democracy group Occupy Central said it would go ahead with its threat to take over the city's Central financial district in protest, at an unspecified date.

Putin calls for talks on east Ukraine ‘statehood’; Kremlin denies endorsing independence

Pro-Russian separatists walk at a destroyed war memorial on Savur-Mohyla, a hill east of the city of DonetskBy Katya Golubkova and Aleksandar Vasovic MOSCOW/MARIUPOL Ukraine (Reuters) – Russian President Vladimir Putin called on Sunday for immediate talks on "statehood" for southern and eastern Ukraine, although his spokesman said this did not mean Moscow now endorsed rebel calls for independence for territory they have seized. The Kremlin leader's remarks, which follow a feisty public appearance in which he compared the Kiev government to Nazis and warned the West not to "mess with us", came with Europe and the United States preparing new sanctions to halt what they say is direct Russian military involvement in the war in Ukraine. Ukraine and Russia swapped soldiers who had entered each other's territory near the battlefield, where Kiev says Moscow's forces have come to the aid of pro-Russian insurgents, tipping the balance on the battlefield in the rebels' favour.

Pakistan’s Khan vows to fight on despite deadly clashes

Pakistani opposition politician Imran Khan addresses supporters during an anti-government protest in front of the Parliament in Islamabad on August 26, 2014Pakistani opposition leader Imran Khan vowed Sunday to protest "until the last breath" as ongoing clashes between his supporters and police outside the prime minister's residence left three dead and hundreds injured. The violence began Saturday night after thousands of supporters of Khan and firebrand cleric Tahir ul Qadri tried to storm Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's house using cranes to remove barricades. Shipping containers were set ablaze, several vehicles stood torched, and hundreds of tear gas canisters lay strewn on the ground on Islamabad's normally pristine Constitution Avenue following more than 15 hours of battle. The opposition groups marched to the capital on August 15 demanding the resignation of Sharif, triggering a crisis that has raised the spectre of military intervention.

Putin urges talks on ‘political organization and statehood’ in east Ukraine

MOSCOW/CHELYABINSK Russia (Reuters) – President Vladimir Putin called on Sunday for meaningful talks between pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine and the Kiev government on issues including “political organization and statehood” to protect people living there. Asked about Putin’s remarks quoted by Tass news agency, a Kremlin spokesman said the president was not calling for a separate state in the region, adding it should remain part of Ukraine and calling the crisis there a domestic conflict. “Substantive, meaningful talks should begin immediately … related to the issues of society’s political organization and statehood in southeastern Ukraine to protect legitimate interests of people living there,” Tass quoted Putin as saying.

Rebel number two to join Ukraine peace talks on Monday

The deputy leader of a breakaway east Ukrainian region said he would take part in talks with representatives of Moscow and Kiev on Monday but did not expect a breakthrough, Russia’s Itar-Tass news agency reported. Andrei Purgin, deputy prime minister of the rebels’ self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, told Tass the meeting of the so-called Contact Group in the Belarussian capital Minsk would be “only a first step in negotiations”. “Each side will present the list of questions it is ready to discuss.” Presidents Vladimir Putin of Russia and Petro Poroshenko of Ukraine agreed last week to reconvene the Contact Group, which also includes the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), in an effort to end the war in east Ukraine in which about 2,600 people have been killed.

Detroit raced toward this week’s bankruptcy trial

In this July 16, 2013 aerial file photo, the downtown of the city of Detroit is shown. Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr raised more than a few eyebrows a year ago when he took the city into bankruptcy and predicted it would be out by the time his term expired in fall 2014. Because it is by far the largest city to file for municipal bankruptcy and the issues were so complex many experts predicted it would take years to resolve. But the city will take a major step toward that goal with a trial in federal bankruptcy court that starts Tuesday, Sept 2, 2014. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya, File)DETROIT (AP) — It took decades of mismanagement, malfeasance and meltdowns in its bread-and-butter manufacturing sector for Detroit to hit fiscal rock bottom. The path to exit bankruptcy could take less than a year and a half.
