Corrected - Cosby victim asks only for 'justice' at sentencing hearing
Cosby was convicted in April of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, a former administrator at his alma mater Temple University, in his Philadelphia-area home in 2004 and faces a possible prison sentence on Tuesday. Surrounded by her parents and siblings, Constand addressed the court in a loud, clear voice for roughly a minute as Cosby, 81, sat nearby. Mr. Cosby heard me.

Mattis dismisses Iran's revenge threat as tensions climb after attack
Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Monday the attackers who killed 25 people at a military parade had been paid by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, and that Iran would "severely punish" those behind the bloodshed. The deputy head of Iran's Revolutionary Guards also accused the United States and Israel of involvement in the attack and said they should expect a devastating response. Mattis told reporters at the Pentagon that Iran's threat did not give him any concern.

Gilead to launch generic versions of its hepatitis drugs
(Reuters) - Gilead Sciences Inc said on Monday it plans to launch generic versions of its hepatitis C drugs in the United States, at a time when regulators are looking to lower healthcare costs. The drugmaker's generic version of drugs such as Harvoni and Epclusa, which raked in combined sales of $831 million in the quarter ended June 30, will be launched via a newly created subsidiary Asegua Therapeutics LLC. Gilead's decision comes more than a month after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd's copycat version of Mylan NV's life-saving allergy injection, EpiPen. U.S. healthcare companies, ranging from insurers to drug retailers, are stepping up efforts to combat rising drug prices that have been widely criticized by regulators.

And now we pick up the pieces after our meltdown over Rod Rosenstein's non-resignation
It's been a wild ride on the Rod Rosenstein rollercoaster. On Monday morning, the internet turned into a five-alarm dumpster fire when it was reported Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had resigned from his position. But then, as minutes and hours ticked by, it turned out he was still in his position after all. Axios kicked things off by reporting that Rosenstein offered his resignation to Trump chief-of-staff John Kelly in anticipation of being fired anyway. Then came contradictory reports that Rosenstein was heading to the White House and expected to be fired and would fight any attempt to resign. And then there was ... just utter confusion as the minutes gave way to hours and there was no sign of a resolution.  SEE ALSO: 7 ways 'The Simpsons' predicted the chaos of Donald Trump's presidency Finally, after two hours of chaos, during which reports surfaced that Rosenstein had met with Kelly and then gone right to another meeting, the White House put out a statement that Rosenstein would meet with Trump on Thursday.

Bill Cosby's lawyers and a state-appointed psychologist argued in court on Monday over whether the disgraced comedian should be deemed a "sexually violent predator" under Pennsylvania law as a two-day sentencing hearing began for Cosby's sexual assault conviction. Cosby, who was found guilty in April, is the first celebrity to face a possible prison sentence since the start of the #MeToo movement, the national reckoning with sexual misconduct that has brought down dozens of powerful men in entertainment, politics and other fields. Cosby, 81, built a family-friendly reputation playing the affable Dr. Cliff Huxtable in the 1980s television comedy "The Cosby Show." He was convicted of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, a former administrator at his alma mater Temple University, at his Philadelphia-area home in 2004.

Pompeo to meet Russia's Lavrov amid U.S. concern on missile sale to Syria
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Monday he expected to meet with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov in New York as Washington expressed concern at Moscow's plans to supply the S-300 surface-to-air missile system to Syria. "I'm sure Sergei and I will have our time together," Pompeo said of plans to meet Lavrov on the sidelines of the annual gathering of world leaders at the United Nations. "We are trying to find every place we can where there is common ground, where we can work with the Russians," adding that there were many areas where Moscow was working against the United States and "we will hold them accountable." Russia announced on Monday it will supply a S-300 missile system to Syria in two weeks despite strong Israeli objections, a week after Moscow blamed Israel for indirectly causing the downing of a Russian military plane in Syria.

Iran appeared on Sunday to soften its stance on potential increases in OPEC oil output, saying it was the group's responsibility to balance the market if production from Iran or any other member declined. Tehran had previously said no OPEC member was allowed to grab market share from rivals, such as Venezuela or Libya, whose production had declined due to unrest or a lack of investment. Iran itself faces the prospect of much lower oil exports and output in coming months due to fresh U.S. sanctions.

The landmark deal between China and the Vatican is a win for Beijing, giving official recognition to bishops appointed by the government despite a crackdown on religion, and potentially softening the ground for full diplomatic relations after 67 years of estrangement, analysts said. The two sides signed a provisional agreement on Saturday on who gets to name senior churchmen, an issue that has bedevilled ties for decades, and China quickly said it hoped for an improvement in relations. With its outsized international influence, the Vatican is the most important of Taiwan's 17 remaining friends, and its only European partner.

What the House of Representatives means in US politics - and how it could change at the midterms
The House of Representatives is the lower chamber of the US Congress and is made up of 435 seats.  The number of seats each US state receives depends on its population size. California, the most populous state, has 53 representatives while seven states - Alaska, Delaware, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont and Wyoming have just one representative. The Republican Party currently controls the chamber with a 43-seat majority, but it is widely expected that the Democrats will gain control in the upcoming election. The current House has 236 Republicans and 193 Democrats, with six vacant seats.  The Democrats need a net gain of 24 seats to win a majority, which is no small accomplishment, but the president's low approval ratings have given the party reason to hope.  How things could change Historically, the president's party routinely loses House seats in midterms. Indeed the University of Virginia's Centre for Politics points out that the president's party has lost seats in all but three of the 29 midterms held since 1900.   The US economy is booming, with low unemployment rates and rising wages. However some Republicans have been unnerved by Donald Trump's spending . While Mr Trump's tax cuts for corporations was popular among business owners, the country's deficit has increased by 33 per cent in the past year to $895 billion. Donald Trump has been intensive

Britain 'concerned' after Hong Kong bans pro-independence party
The UK government has demanded China respect the autonomy of Hong Kong after Beijing banned a political party in the city that supports independence from China. "We are concerned by the decision" of the government, the Foreign Office said in a statement. "The UK does not support Hong Kong independence, but Hong Kong's high degree of autonomy and its rights and freedoms are central to its way of life, and it is important they are fully respected." The ban was instituted on Monday on the grounds that the Hong Kong National Party (HKNP) was found a threat to national security as Beijing continues to stamp out challenges to its sovereignty. It is the first such ban on a political party since the former British colony was handed back to China by the UK in 1997. Police requested the ban in July under the Societies Ordinance, which allows groups to be prohibited in the interests of national security and public safety.  Under the move, it is now illegal to be a party member, raise money for the group and to participate or act on behalf of the organization. Anyone in violation could face up to three years in prison and thousands in fines, according to a government notice posted online. Pro-democracy demonstrations in the special administrative region in 2014 largely failed to usher in political reforms. Since then, activists have continued speaking out. However, pro-independence supporters have been barred from running for office, including Andy Chan, a founding member of HKNP. Others have been disqualifie

While the Huras al-Din faction is not the main Islamist militant group in Idlib, its statement points to objections that may complicate the implementation of the agreement clinched last week by Russia and Turkey.

Mike Pompeo warns White House staff as he denies Rosenstein wiretapping allegations
Mike Pompeo, the US Secretary of State, on Sunday publicly warned administration staff that they needed to either work with the Trump agenda or leave their positions. His comments came after reports that Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, discussed wearing a wire and recruiting cabinet members to invoke the 25th amendment in the days following the firing of James Comey, the FBI director.  The  25th amendment allows for the removal of the president from office if he or she was deemed unfit to carry out duties. In a thinly-veiled attack raising further questions over whether Mr Trump would fire Mr Rosenstein, Mr Pompeo suggested that White House officials should find "something else to do" if they do not support President Trump's agenda.  "I've been pretty clear since my beginning of service here in this administration, if you can't be on the team, if you're not supporting this mission, then maybe you ought to find something else to do," he said.

Survivor found two days after Tanzania shipwreck after shutting himself in ferry engine room
An engineer who had  shut himself into the engine room of a shipwrecked ferry was found alive yesterday, two days after it capsized in Tanzania.   Bodies continued to float to the surface around the vessel, which initial estimates suggested was carrying more than 300 people. State broadcaster TBC said the death toll had reached 207. Four navy divers resumed their search inside the sunken MV Nyerere early on Saturday after hearing sounds that suggested signs of life. They pulled one man out of the overturned ship and he was rushed to hospital, a Reuters witness said. His condition was not immediately known. On Friday, President John Magufuli ordered the arrest of those responsible for the sinking. Tanzanian rescue workers remove bodies of victims from the water Credit: AFP Dozens of relatives stood crying by the shoreline as they waited for information on their loved ones. Coffins were lined up nearby awaiting bodies being pulled from the vessel, which lay belly up in the water just metres from the shoreline. "The ferry overturned very fast and covered us," survivor Charles Ngarima told Reuters. "I was lucky that I was able to swim under water not knowing where I was swimming to...while trying to swim to safety, I found a number of metal bars that cut my face and the back of my head."

Brent oil soared Monday close to $81, reaching the highest level since November 2014 after OPEC and other global producers snubbed pressure from US President Donald Trump to dampen prices. Oil leapt after the world's top producers decided to maintain output during a meeting in Algeria at the weekend. A committee comprised of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) cartel and non-OPEC producers said it was satisfied with the current market outlook, which represented "an overall healthy balance between supply and demand".

Chinese Catholics 'pray for the best' but wary after Vatican deal
Chinese Catholics have mixed feelings about the Vatican's landmark deal with Beijing: Some in the unofficial "underground" church remain suspicious of the government while others "pray for the best". After the provisional agreement was announced by both sides, the Vatican said Pope Francis recognised seven clergy appointed by the Chinese Communist government -- a move that could lead to a rapprochement for the first time since diplomatic ties were severed in 1951. Catholics recognise the pope as the head of the church, with the appointment of bishops requiring a nod from the Holy See -- while China's officially atheist government does not tolerate any other power centre and insists on appointing its own bishops.

All aboard: Hong Kong bullet train signals high-speed integration with China
While the $11 billion rail project has raised fears for some over Beijing's encroachment on the Chinese-ruled city's cherished freedoms, passengers at the sleek harbourfront station were full of praise for a service that reaches mainland China in less than 20 minutes. "Out of 10 points, I give it nine," said 10-year-old Ng Kwan-lap, who was traveling with his parents on the first train leaving for Shenzhen at 7 a.m. "The train is great. It's very smooth when it hits speeds of 200 kilometers per hour." Mainland Chinese immigration officers are stationed in one part of the modernist station that is subject to Chinese law, an unprecedented move that some critics say further erodes the city's autonomy.

Russia blames 'misleading' Israeli intelligence for downed plane in Syria
The Russian military on Sunday said "misleading" information from the Israeli airforce caused the downing of a Russian plane in Syria, and denounced the "adventurism" of Israeli pilots. Military spokesman Igor Konashenkov presented the results of an investigation of how a Russian Ilyushin-20 with 15 troops on board was shot down by a Syrian air defence missile on September 17. Moscow has accused Israel's fighter pilots of using the bigger Ilyushin as cover, resulting in Syria's Soviet-era S-200 air defence system interpreting the Russian plane as a target. Israel denied this version of events and its air force commander flew to Moscow following the incident, which President Vladimir Putin called a result of a "chain of tragic accidental circumstances." It was the deadliest known case of friendly fire between Syria and key backer Russia since Moscow's game-changing 2015 military intervention. Konashenkov said the Russian military received a call from Israeli command at 1839 GMT warning that Israel would be striking "north of Syria", where the Il-20 surveillance aircraft was monitoring the Idlib de-escalation zone. Russia ordered its plane back to base. Then, "one minute" after Israel's call, its F-16 planes struck targets in Latakia in western Syria, he said. "The misleading (information) by the Israeli offi

OPEC and allies struggle to pump more oil as Iran supply falls
The development further raises pressure on the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries to boost supply amid calls from U.S. President Donald Trump to lower oil prices. On Friday, a source familiar with the discussions told Reuters OPEC and its allies led by Russia were considering the possibility of raising crude supplies by a further 500,000 barrels per day (bpd) as U.S. sanctions on OPEC's third-largest producer, Iran, bite into Tehran's exports. As a result, the strength of oil prices is now putting oil demand growth at risk," he added.

Indonesia teen rescued after seven weeks adrift at sea
An Indonesian teenager survived seven weeks adrift at sea after his tiny fishing trap lost its moorings and ended up some 2,500 kilometres (1,500 miles) away in waters near the Pacific island of Guam, his family said Monday. Aldi Novel Adilang's harrowing tale began in mid-July when the 18-year-old was working solo on a fishing hut anchored about 125 kilometres (77 miles) off Indonesia's Sulawesi island. The floating fishing trap, known as a rompong, had no engine or paddles and was anchored to the seabed with a long rope, but heavy winds knocked it off its moorings and sent Adilang out to sea, local media said.

Ashes of war to S. Korea holiday gift: Spam Spam Spam
From the front lines of war to a staple of institutional catering, Spam is rarely seen as a gourmet ingredient -- but the canned pink meat holds a unique position in South Korea as a top-selling holiday gift. Ahead of the Chuseok harvest festival which starts Sunday -- one of Korea's biggest celebrations and an occasion for mass family gatherings -- presentation wooden boxes of the blue-and-yellow tins, nestled in packing straw, line the shelves of both major retailers and local convenience stores. An upmarket black-label pack with six cans of Spam and two bottles of Andalusian olive oil costs over 90,000 won ($80), but the most popular version is a nine-tin set at 30,000 won.
