Families bury victims as Tanzania ferry disaster toll passes 200
Grieving families were on Sunday preparing to bury victims of Tanzania's devastating ferry disaster, with more than 200 confirmed dead after the crowded boat capsized in Lake Victoria. "We are going to start burying bodies not yet identified by relatives," said John Mongella, governor of Mwanza region, where the MV Nyerere ferry had been coming in to dock on the island of Ukara. Divers were also set to continue their grim search in the waters around the boat, where late Saturday they were watched by anxious crowds gathered just metres (yards) away on Ukara's shore.

Republican Congressman's six siblings launch TV advert attacking him
Six siblings of a Republican Congressman standing for re-election have taken the extraordinary step of releasing an advert urging people not to vote for him. Paul Gosar,  from the most conservative wing of the Republican Party,  is standing in Arizona for re-election to the House of Representatives in November. The Congressman has been known to court controversy, and boycotted Pope Francis' speech to Congress in 2015 because of his warnings about climate change. Now six of his siblings have put their support behind his Democratic opponent David Brill in a new television advert disparaging their brother. To maximise its impact, the campaign video does not reveal the six speakers' relationship to Mr Gosar until the very end. The speakers are introduced by first name only - with Grace, a rural physician, stating "Paul Gosar the Congressman isn't doing anything to support rural America". Jennifer, a medical interpreter, chimes in: "if he actually cared about people in rural Arizona, I bet he'd be fighting for social security, for better access to healthcare". "He is not listening to you - and he does not have your best interests at heart," says Tim, before adding: "My name is Tim Gosar". It is not the first time Mr Gosar's siblings have publicly criticised their brother. Last August the Congressman suggested a neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virgin

"There have been no changes to the deconfliction mechanism as a result of this unfortunate event," the military official said on condition of anonymity, referring to Monday's downing following Israeli air strikes.

After warm words, US tells Kim Jong-un that concessions will only come after denuclearisation
Hopes of rapid progress towards the denuclearisation of North Korea cooled on Thursday after the US pushed back against Kim Jong-un's promise to dismantle a nuclear test site if Washington first made concessions. Donald Trump and his secretary of state had both offered words of encouragement after Kim signed a joint statement with Moon Jae-in, the South Korean president, during three days of talks in Pyongyang this week. But that was followed by a more sober State Department briefing insisting nothing had changed in the US position and there could be no rewards for Mr Kim's regime until it completed the denuclearisation process. Heather Nauert, a State Department spokeswoman, said, "Nothing can happen in the absence of denuclearisation. Denuclearisation has to come first." Analysts have long pointed out that promises made by Kim offer little new, particularly on the issue of its nuclear weapons capability. Inside North Korea: fascinating images of the world's most secretive state That was not enough to prevent an initial positive reaction from US officials. Mr Trump described the joint declaration as "tremendous progress". "Kim Jong-un has agreed to allow nuclear inspections, subject to final negotiations, and to permanently dismantle a test site and launch pad in the presence of international experts", Mr Trump tweeted on Wednesday. "In the meantime there will be no rocket or ruclear testing". Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state

Gunmen kill 24 Iranian revolutionary guard in an attack on military parade
Gunmen opened fire on a military parade in Iran on Saturday, killing 24 people including elite Revolutionary Guard troops, in one of the deadliest attacks in the country in recent years. Four assailants targeted a stand where Iranian officials had gathered to watch an annual event in the southwestern city of Ahvaz marking the start of the Islamic Republic's 1980-88 war with Iraq. There were reports they were dressed in Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp (IRGC) uniforms. A pan-Arab, anti-government group called the Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahvaz appeared to take responsibility for the attack, which wounded more than 50 people. Among the dead were eight IRGC servicemen, as well as women and children. Islamic State also later claimed it, but Iranian authorities deemed it not to be credible. At least 24 troops were killed on September 22 in an attack on a military parade in the southwestern province of Khuzestan Credit: AFP Ahvaz is in the centre of Khuzestan province, where there have been sporadic protests by the Sunni Arab minority in predominantly Shia Iran. Such attacks are relatively rare in Iran. However, tensions between mainly Shia Iran and mostly Sunni Saudi Arabia have surged in recent years, with the two countries supporting opposite sides in wars in Syria and Yemen and rival political parties in Iraq and Lebanon.
