Crushed wreckage of Argentine submarine located one year after vanishing
The crushed wreckage of an Argentine submarine has been located a year after it vanished into the depths of the Atlantic Ocean with 44 crew members, in the country's worst naval disaster in decades. The Seabed Constructor, a ship owned by US search firm Ocean Infinity, made the discovery Friday, one day after the first anniversary of the disappearance of the San Juan. The ship had set out in September on the latest attempt to find the San Juan, whose disappearance cost the navy's top officer his job. There has been "positive identification of the ARA San Juan," at a depth of 800 meters (2,600 feet), the navy said on Twitter, confirming the vessel had imploded. The navy lost contact with the submarine on November 15, 2017, about 450 kilometers (280 miles) from the Argentine coast while it was traveling northward from the country's southern tip. Search and rescue mission for Argentinian submarine Admiral Jose Villan, the navy's new head, said that the rough terrain on the ocean floor made it difficult for search vessels, which had already trawled the site, to find the sub. Pieces of the submarine that were 11, 13 and 30 meters long were spotted in "an irregular, moon-like zone with craters and canyons" naval Captain Enrique Balbi said at a conference, adding that the hull had been "crushed inwards." "I still had hopes that they could be alive," Luis Niz, the father of a missing sailor, told reporters, even though President Mauricio Macri's government had already declared

Netanyahu heads into cabinet showdown as allies demand early Israeli elections
Benjamin Netanyahu faces a showdown with his coalition government partners on Sunday as he tries to stop them from forcing early elections in the wake of his unpopular decision to agree to a ceasefire with Hamas.  Three of the smaller parties in the Israeli prime minister's coalition have demanded elections as soon as possible and want to use today's cabinet meeting to formally agree on a date for the vote.  However, Mr Netanyahu said he wants to keep the government together and is eager to push the date of the elections off for several more months.  "Prime Minister Netanyahu stressed that it is important to make every effort to preserve the Right-wing government," said a spokesman for his Likud party. Mr Netanyahu on Saturday said he wanted his government to see out the end of its term, blaming the centre-Right Kulanu party for the turmoil. "If the Kulanu faction doesn't bring the government down - there is a government," he said on Twitter. "All Likud members want to keep serving the country for another whole year until the end of the term in November 2019."   Education Minister Naftali Bennett demanded to be given the defence portfolio, threatening to withdraw his eight seats from Mr Netanyahu's governing coalition Credit: MENAHEM KAHANA/AFP/Getty Images He is hoping a delayed election will leave more time for the Right-wing voters of his base to forget about last week's ceasefire agreement with Hamas to stop fighting in Gaza.   Many Israelis on the Right wa

California wildfire death toll reaches 71 as number missing rises to 1000
The death toll in California's wildfires climbed to 71 on Friday as the number of missing people surpassed 1000, while authorities continued the search for survivors and victims. However, Kory Honea, Butte sheriff, said the list of missing people was dynamic, and could contain the names of people who did not realise they had been reported missing. "We are still receiving calls, we're still reviewing emails," he said. President Donald Trump is expected to visit the area on Saturday to see for himself the grief and damage caused by California's most deadly wildfires. But he may face anger from locals for comments suggesting the fires could have been prevented or contained with better forest management. In an interview recorded on Friday and scheduled for broadcast on Fox News Sunday, Mr Trump said he was surprised to see images of firefighters removing dried brush near a fire. "This should have been all raked out," he said. Meanwhile, deputies found eight more bodies on Friday, bringing the death toll to 71. Authorities are trying to reassure an anxious public that the long list of missing names - jumping from 600 a day earlier - may simply reflect the difficulty in trying to account for everyone thought to be in the area. Some on the list have been confirmed as dead by family and friends on social media. Others have been located and are safe, but authorities have not yet marked them as found.

Authorities attributed the high death toll from the so-called Camp Fire, which erupted last Thursday in the drought-parched Sierra foothills 175 miles north of San Francisco, in part to the staggering speed with which the wind-whipped flames raced with little warning through Paradise, a town of 27,000.

California presses search for fire victims, number of missing soars
Remains of at least 63 people have been recovered so far in and around the Sierra foothills hamlet of Paradise, which was home to nearly 27,000 residents before the town was largely incinerated by the deadly Camp Fire on the night of Nov. 8. More than a week later, firefighters have managed to carve containment lines around 45 percent of the blaze's perimeter, up from 35 percent a day earlier, even as the burned landscape grew slightly to 142,000 acres (57,000 hectares). More than 11,000 evacuees were being housed in 14 emergency shelters set up in churches, schools and community centers around the region, American Red Cross spokeswoman Greta Gustafson said.

CIA has concluded Saudi crown prince ordered journalist's killing: Washington Post
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The CIA has concluded that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul, the Washington Post reported on Friday, a finding that contradicts Saudi government assertions that he was not involved. The Post said U.S. officials have expressed high confidence in the CIA assessment, which is the most definitive to date linking Saudi Arabia's de facto ruler to the killing and complicates President Donald Trump's efforts to preserve U.S. ties with one of the closest American allies in the region. ...

Stacey Abrams: Republican Brian Kemp will be Georgia's next governor
The Democrat Stacey Abrams has acknowledged that the Republican Brian Kemp will be declared the next governor of Georgia, bringing to a close the hard-fought and bitterly contested election. The race, in a state won comfortably by Donald Trump in 2016, had been too close to call since polls closed on Tuesday last week. Kemp had clung to a slim lead, staying just above the over 50% he needed to avoid a runoff election.

Abrams admits defeat in hard-fought Georgia governor race
Abrams' announcement effectively hands victory to Republican Brian Kemp in a bitter race that has drawn national attention both for her historic campaign and for Kemp's role as the state's top election administrator. Abrams accused Kemp of using his position as Georgia Secretary of State to interfere with the vote - an allegation he has strongly denied. "To watch an elected official who claims to represent the people in this state baldly pin his hopes for election on the suppression of the people's democratic right to vote has been truly appalling," Abrams told supporters in Atlanta.

Pfizer to raise U.S. drug prices in January after previously backing down
The largest U.S. drugmaker said in a statement that the increases would be on around 10 percent of its medicines. Pfizer said it would raise the list price of most of the drugs by 5 percent, while prices for three will rise by 3 percent, and the price of one by 9 percent, all effective Jan. 15. Pfizer said it does not expect the price increases to boost its revenue in the United States next year as it believes that rebates to insurance companies and pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) will offset them.
