Netanyahu and Putin defuse crisis after Syria downs Russia warplane
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin sought to defuse a crisis on Tuesday after Syrian defences mistakenly downed a Russian warplane after Israeli air strikes. The incident late Monday was the deadliest known case of friendly fire between Syria and its key backer Russia since Moscow's game-changing 2015 military intervention. The Ilyushin plane dropped off the radar over the Mediterranean after Turkey and Russia announced a deal that offered millions of people reprieve from a threatened military assault in northern Syria's Idlib province.

Royal wedding guest list: Who will Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank invite?
The second royal wedding of the year will take place on October 12, with preparations for Princess Eugenie of York and Jack Brookbank's nuptials no doubt well underway.  With less than a month to go, the flowers will most likely have been chosen, cakes tasted and selected and the invitations sent out. But who will have received one? Here is everything we know so far about the guest list, from royal family members to celebrity friends. Princess Eugenie's royal wedding | Read more Family members Earlier this year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex exchanged vows in front of more than 30 members of the Royal family, which give us an idea of what to expect for the upcoming royal nuptials.

Naturally the Duke and Duchess of York, Princess Eugenie's parents, will also play a large role in the proceedings. Princess Eugenie announced in an interview with British Vogue earlier this year that her older sister Princess Beatrice will play a central role, as Maid of Honour.

Russia blames Israel for friendly fire attack on its aircraft by Syria which killed 15 servicemen
Russia has blamed Israel for a friendly-fire attack by Syrian forces on a Russian reconnaissance plane which left 15 of its servicemen dead, vowing retaliation for the "deliberate provocation". Russian military said that Israeli F-16 pilots were using the Ilyushin Il-20 turboprop aircraft as cover while carrying out strikes against targets in Syria's Latakia province and put it in the line of fire from Syrian missiles. The aircraft was hit 22 miles off Latakia's coast in the eastern Mediterranean as it was returning to a Russian airbase near the city, which is under the control of Bashar al-Assad's government. It appears the Israelis were targeting an ammunition depot linked to the Lebanese Hizbullah group, killing at least two fighters and wounding 10. Israel denied it was its intention to provoke Syria into firing at the allied Russian plane. A IL-20PP reconnaissance aircraft of the Russian Air Force taking  Credit: Alamy However, the Russian defence ministry said they were given only a one-minute warning from Israel over their deconfliction hotline, leaving it with insufficient time to reach a safe area.

U.S. to sharply limit refugee flows to 30,000 in 2019
"We proposed resettling up to 30,000 refugees under the new refugee ceiling as well as processing more than 280,000 asylum seekers," Pompeo said in an announcement at the State Department, calling the United States "the most generous nation in the world when it comes to protection-based immigration." "This year's proposed refugee ceiling must be considered in the context of the many other forms of protection and assistance offered by the United States," he said. "Today's announcement ... is a shameful abdication of our humanity in the face of the worst refugee crisis in history," Jennifer Quigley, of Human Rights First, said in a statement. Senator Bob Menendez, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, called the decision "cruel and short sighted." He said reducing the cap would "do untold damage to our nation's values and countless lives across the world." Pompeo said the new limit reflected the administration's preference for settling refugees closer to their home countries, something President Donald Trump has said would be cheaper than admitting them to the United States.

Trump administration says US to accept just 30,000 refugees in 2019 - a third of the historic average
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Monday that the United States would cap the number of refugees allowed into the country at 30,000 for the 2019 fiscal year, a sharp drop from a limit of 45,000 it set for 2018. "We proposed resettling up to 30,000 refugees under the new refugee ceiling as well as processing more than 280,000 asylum seekers," Mr Pompeo said in an announcement at the State Department. "These expansive figures continue the United States' long-standing record as the most generous nation in the world when it comes to protection-based immigration and assistance," he said. The refugee ceiling set last year of 45,000 was the lowest since 1980, when the modern refugee program was established. The United States is on track to admit only 22,000 refugees this year, about half the maximum allowed. It was not immediately clear whether the State Department and the Pentagon, which supported maintaining the cap at 45,000, changed their position as the debate proceeded or failed to persuade the White House. US President Donald Trump campaigned in 2016 promising tight restrictions on immigration, and his administration has sharply reduced refugee admissions through executive orders and closed-door decisions in the past year and a half. The International Rescue Committee, a charity that helps those who lives are impacted by disasters and conflicts, said that since 1980 the refugee admissions cap had averaged over 9

Florence flooding limits road access to Duke nuclear plant
(Reuters) - Duke Energy Corp said on Monday that its Brunswick nuclear power plant in North Carolina remained safely shut down despite limited road access to the site due to flooding from storm Florence. The remnants of Florence, which came ashore as a hurricane on Friday, are still dropping heavy amounts of rain on the already waterlogged Carolinas, with officials warning the worst is yet to come as swollen rivers pose a growing threat. Duke spokeswoman Mary Kathryn Green said there was road access to the Brunswick site but it was "limited access." She said there were about 300 people at the plant.

Coca-Cola is considering marijuana-infused drinks
Soda's overrated, so Coca-Cola's looking into weed.  Coca-Cola has been eyeing cannabis-infused drinks, according to a statement. The company said Monday that it's "closely watching" the use of CBD in "functional wellness" beverages.  SEE ALSO: Hero fights off weed dispensary robbers with a bong "The space is evolving quickly," Coca-Cola spokesman Kent Landers told Bloomberg News. "No decisions have been made at this time."  According to a report in BNN Bloomberg, the company is "in talks" with Aurora Cannabis, a Canadian marijuana producer. While sales in sugary sodas have slowed down, Reuters notes that health drinks are on the rise.  Unlike THC, the compound in cannabis that causes a high, CBD is non-psychoactive. It is believed to have anti-inflammatory, anti-nausea, anti-seizure effects, and because it doesn't make the user intoxicated, CBD products are marketed as having some of the benefits of cannabis without the intoxication.  Since Canada just legalized recreational marijuana, manufacturers have been showing more and more interest in producing cannabis-infused products. Reuters calls it a "testing ground" until the U.S. comes around to legalization.  "Entry into a legalized Canadian market allows them to develop and build a brand while not breaking any laws," Bruce Campbell, an investor who's invested in weed producers, told Reuters . If Coca-Cola does go forward with making weed-infused products, it would be the first non-alcoholic manufacturer to make cannabis-related drinks, which would be pretty dan

Trump poised to make major China trade announcement
US President Donald Trump was poised to ratchet up his trade dispute with China, with a major announcement promised later Monday that could see hundreds of billions in goods subjected to fresh import duties. Trump is due to make the announcement after the close of US stock markets, where major indices were already sinking sharply in anticipation of what could be a major escalation in the US-China trade conflict. The president has vowed to put punitive tariffs on another $200 billion in Chinese goods, meaning tariffs would now affect roughly half of what the United States buys from China -- its largest source of imported merchandise.
