Trump vows to cut Central America aid, calls migrant caravan an emergency
"Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador were not able to do the job of stopping people from leaving their country and coming illegally to the U.S. We will now begin cutting off, or substantially reducing, the massive foreign aid routinely given to them," Trump wrote in a series of Twitter posts. Trump and his fellow Republicans have sought to elevate the caravan, which has made its way into Mexico bound for the U.S. border, and immigration as campaign issues ahead of the midterm elections, in which his party is fighting to maintain control of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives.

From blackmailing princes to murdering journalists: how Saudi Arabia's spy network has expanded under Mohammed bin Salman
Inside the Georgian mansion in Mayfair that houses Saudi Arabia's embassy in London, two offices of Saudi intelligence operatives are busy at work.  The first office belongs to the General Intelligence Presidency, Saudi Arabia's foreign intelligence agency. Its staff are engaged in the "normal" work of spies, meeting with MI6 to discuss Britain and Saudi Arabia's shared fight against al-Qaeda or to swap secrets on Iran.  The second office has a darker purpose. There the staff of the Mabahith, Saudi Arabia's secret police, are tracking people of interest inside the UK.  Its operatives are watching obvious targets like Saudi dissidents who have gone into exile in Britain, or London-based Islamists whose ideology is seen as a threat to Saudi Arabia's absolute monarchy. But they are also keeping tabs on Arab businessmen and the decadent lives of Gulf royals living the UK. The Mabahith's spies are especially interested in compromising material they can use as blackmail to further Riyadh's interests.       "These guys gather the dirt and they hold it until directed," said a former Saudi embassy employee, who spoke on condition of anonymity. "They want to know who is sleeping with who, who is drinking and doing drugs, who is spending money they don't have."  Saudi spies and secret police work out of the kingdom's embassy in London Credit: Photo by Jack Taylor/Getty Images Th

Saudi dissidents fear 'long arm' of state after Khashoggi murder
The murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi has sent a chill through exiled dissidents, with many revealing discreet government attempts to lure them to their embassies as an apparent "trap" to return them to the kingdom. Khashoggi, a critic of powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, in what sources close to the government have said was likely an authorised rendition that went wrong. Saudi exiles in three different countries have recounted what appeared to be official attempts to bait them into the kingdom's diplomatic missions, exposing them to potentially the same fate as Khashoggi.

CCTV shows Saudi operative 'wearing Jamal Khashoggi's clothes and a fake beard' in consulate decoy
CCTV footage has been released which appears to show one of the 15 Saudi Arabian so-called "hit squad" members posing as a body double for murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The images, which were published by CNN on Monday, show the decoy leaving the Saudi consulate in Istanbul by the back door, wearing Mr Khashoggi's clothes, a fake beard and glasses in the hours after he was killed. The man has been identified as Mustafa al-Madani - an official who was reportedly brought from Riyadh to Turkey to act as Khashoggi's body double. Four hours earlier Mr Madani, 57, who is of similar height, age and build to Khashoggi, entered the building by the front door, without a beard, wearing a blue and white checked shirt and dark blue trousers. "Khashoggi's clothes were probably still warm when Madani put them on," a senior Turkish official told CNN.

Duchess of Sussex rejoins Duke for walkabout after rest from Australian tour as pregnancy 'takes its toll'
The Duchess of Sussex joined her husband for a walkabout on Fraser Island, having spent the morning resting as her pregnancy "takes its toll". Meghan, wearing a striped dress by Reformation and brown leather lace-up sandals, clutched her baby bump for part of the walk under blue skies in Queensland. The Duke had attended three of the day's engagements on his own, including an unveiling of the Queen's Commonwealth Canopy, where he joked about plaque-unveiling running "in the family". He had told his pregnant wife to take it easy as the couple carry out a 16-day tour across Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga, telling Invictus Games athletes on Sunday: "Being pregnant takes its toll". It is understood that the Duchess of Sussex is to resume her full royal tour programme as of now and will undertake the full schedule in Fiji and Tonga unless circumstances change again.  The Duchess was glowing as she arrived by car to meet her husband, having spent the morning at their hotel recuperating from the heavy schedule of the first week of their tour. A royal aide said: "She isn't sick, she just had a tiring few days and we were concerned about the roads on the island which are incredibly bumpy and uncomfortable for anyone, let alone a pregnant woman. "But the Duchess was very keen to re-join the duke at the last engagement of the day to greet the people of the island." The Duke and Duchess of Sussex meet wellwishers along

Migrant caravan reforms in Mexico after thousands make desperate journey from Guatemala across river
A growing throng of Central American migrants resumed their advance toward the US border in southern Mexico on Sunday, overwhelming Mexican government attempts to stop them at the border. Their numbers swelled to about 5,000 overnight and at first light they started walking toward the Mexican town of Tapachula, 10 abreast in a line stretching approximately a mile (1.5 kilometres). Several hundred more already had applied for refugee status in Mexico and an estimated 1,500 were still on the Guatemalan side of the Suchiate River, hoping to enter legally. The decision to re-form the migrant caravan capped a day in which Mexican authorities again refused mass entry to migrants on the bridge, instead accepting small groups for asylum processing and giving out 45-day visitor permits to some.  Authorities handed out numbers for people to be processed in a strategy seen before at US border posts when dealing with large numbers of migrants. But many became impatient and circumventing the border gate, crossing the river on rafts, by swimming or by wading in full view of the hundreds of Mexican police manning the blockade on the bridge. Some paid locals the equivalent of $1.25 (£0.95) to ferry them across the muddy waters. They were not detained on reaching the Mexican bank. Migrants cite widespread poverty and gang violence in Honduras as their reasons for joining the caravan.  The caravan has triggered an increase in anti-immi

An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released Sunday showed Democrats have a 9-point edge among likely voters, 50 percent to the 41 percent who want Republicans to stay in charge.

Mnuchin dismisses risk of contagion from China's economic slowdown
China is trying to navigate through multiple challenges after its trade war with the United States sparked a blistering sell-off in domestic stock markets and a steep decline in the yuan versus the dollar, heightening worries about its growth outlook. "I am not concerned about that destabilizing our markets," Mnuchin said in an interview with Reuters in Jerusalem at the start of a Middle East visit and after data on Friday showed a cooling U.S. economy. It marked the weakest year-on-year quarterly gross domestic product growth since the first quarter of 2009 at the height of the global financial crisis.

'I hope it's a girl!' Duke of Sussex reveals he is hoping for a baby girl
The Duke of Sussex has shared his hope that his first baby will be a girl, after being congratulated by a well wisher at the Invictus Games. The father-to-be, who attended the road cycling event alone while the pregnant Duchess rested, laughed as a fan shouted  "I hope it's a girl" as he walked past, replying: "So do I!" It is the first time the Duke has spoken about a preference for the sex of the baby, due in the spring. Last week, the day after news of Baby Sussex was announced, he had amused a small audience during a speech when he appeared to falter over the word "baby" as he avoided saying "son" or "daughter". "We also genuinely couldn't think of a better place to announce the upcoming baby," he said, adding: "Whether it's a boy or a girl." The couple, who are currently on their first Royal tour in the South Pacific, said they could not think of a better place to announce the news Credit: Chris Jackson/Getty Images AsiaPac In an interview with the Australian Invictus Games host broadcaster yesterday, the Duke said he was feeling "fantastic" about becoming a father, adding "new responsibilities and a new third of our lives".  Growing up with one older brother, Prince William, the Duke perhaps gave an insight into his own hopes for a family when, after Kate Middleton married into the royal family, he called her the "big sister I never had". Speaking at the Invictus Games opening ceremony on Saturday night, the Duke told a largely Australian audience: " I have been so proud to be abl
