Hariri says Israeli drones in Beirut attempt to stir Middle East tensions
BEIRUT/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri said two Israeli drones which crashed in a suburb of Beirut dominated by the Iranian-backed Hezbollah were designed to stir up regional tensions. One drone fell and second exploded before dawn and caused some damage to Hezbollah's media center in the southern Dahiyeh suburbs, a Hezbollah official told Reuters, in the first such incident since the two sides waged war in 2006. "The new aggression...constitutes a threat to regional stability and an attempt to push the situation toward further tension," Hariri said in a statement from his office.

After night of clashes, Hong Kong braces for fresh rally
Protesters gathered at a sports stadium Sunday as Hong Kong braced for more anti-government rallies, a day after clashes returned to the city's streets following several days of relative calm. Hong Kong has been gripped by three months of street demonstrations that started against a proposed extradition bill to China, but have spun out into a wider pro-democracy movement. The MTR -- the city's metro -- is the latest Hong Kong business to be rebuked by the public, after appearing to bend to Chinese state-media attacks accusing the transport system of being an "exclusive" service to ferry protesters to rallies.

NJ Cop Sent to Psychiatric Ward After Wife's Slaying Will Finally Face Judge
Chip East/ReutersA New Jersey cop accused of breaking into his estranged wife's home, shooting her, and then chasing her into the streets to put a final bullet in her head—all while in uniform—will finally face a judge next week.Newark Lt. John Formisano was arrested a couple of hours after the July 15 slaying. But instead of being brought to court, he was taken to a psychiatric unit after telling investigators that he "blacked out" just before the shooting.According to a police affidavit, the 49-year-old exhibited "suicidal behavior." Five weeks later, he was still in the hospital and had not been arraigned in a court of law—frustrating victim Christie Solaro-Formisano's family."What we feel is we want to have some justice. Any justice can bring a small fraction of peace and closure," her aunt, Joy Mandara, said earlier this week. "Right now, it seems justice is working very slowly and differently from how we expected."Uniformed Cop Who Allegedly Gunned Down Screaming Wife Hasn't Faced JusticeAfter The Daily Beast and local media reported on the delay, the wheels of justice seemed to speed up. Prosecutors confirmed Saturday that there will be a hearing in the case on Wednesday, and that Formisano will appear via video hookup from the psychiatric unit.Before the hearing was scheduled, prosecutors had insisted Formisano was not getting special treatment because he is a police officer."If this defendant was a house painter or a businessman on Wall Street in the same circumstances, it woul

Police Arrest 29 as Protesters Cause Damage: Hong Kong Update
(Bloomberg) -- Violence returned to Hong Kong's ongoing protests as police arrested 29 people on Saturday after demonstrators occupied roads, set up barricades and hurled projectiles in the 12th week of unrest in the Asian financial center.At least two more rallies are planned for Sunday, including one organized by relatives of police officers, who have been criticized for using excessive force to quell protests. Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam held a meeting on Saturday with former officials and other prominent people to find a way out of the impasse that has rocked the former British colony.Demonstrators are looking to maintain momentum after large but peaceful protests last weekend temporarily broke a pattern of tear gas and police clashes. They formed a human chain across the city on Friday, while a plan to disrupt airport transportation services on Saturday wasn't successful. Historic mass marches opposing legislation easing extraditions to China began peacefully in June, and have since widened into a broader movement against Beijing's increasing grip.Key Developments:Police arrested more than two dozen protesters on SaturdayChief Executive Lam seeks to build a dialogue platform to address roots of discontentU.K. consulate staffer Simon Cheng was released by China on Saturday after more than two weeks of detention Here's the latest:Police condemn ‘radical' behavior (Sunday, 3:02 a.m.)Police said "radical protesters" in Saturday's clashes used electric saws to damage a number of smart lampposts, a

Retailers Dealt Another Blow as Trump Steps Up China Tariffs
(Bloomberg) -- Terms of Trade is a daily newsletter that untangles a world embroiled in trade wars. Sign up here. For American retailers, what Trump giveth, Trump taketh away.President Donald Trump's administration, which said just 10 days ago it would delay until December some of its new tariffs on Chinese goods, has hit the retail sector with a new blow: The new levies will be raised to 15% from 10% as retaliation after China threatened to impose additional tariffs on $75 billion of American goods.He also said that the $250 billion of goods and products already being taxed at 25% will see that rate hiked to 30% starting on Oct. 1. Trump had warned earlier in the day that he was planning to escalate the trade war with China, firing off on Twitter a new demand that U.S. companies seek alternatives to producing goods in China. Some large retailers had said they'll be able to pull levers to keep from passing on the costs to consumers at the 10% tariff rate, but a 15% hike makes that harder to pull off.The National Retail Federation, a retail trade association, weighed in on the escalating trade war Friday, ahead of Trump's tweets laying out the specifics."There are no winners in a trade war, and right now, both sides are losing," said Jonathan Gold, vice president of supply chain and customs policy at the group.
