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.

Volvo asks US government for tariff exemption for China-built XC60 crossover SUV
Volvo is the latest automaker to ask the U.S. government for an exemption from steep tariffs on Chinese-made SUVs, Reuters reported Friday. Buick asked trade officials in July for an exemption from a 25-percent tariff on its China-made Envision SUV earlier this year, although Volvo's interest in seeking relief from the measure is far greater. In August, the XC60 accounted for more than 31 percent of overall sales for Volvo, according to the automaker. Since May, the U.S. has imported most of its Volvo XC60 models from China, although the automaker originally imported them from its factory in Sweden when the car was launched. Unlike Buick, which petitioned for an exemption for 40,000 of its China-built Envision crossover, Volvo is seeking an unlimited exemption for XC60 crossovers built in China, according to Reuters.  Earlier this year, Volvo opened its first North American production facility near Charleston, S.C., where it builds the S60 sedan and eventually the XC90 full-size crossover. DON'T MISS: Global trade war prompts Volvo to put brakes on its IPO In its letter to the U.S. Trade Representative, Volvo said it could eventually build the XC60 crossover in America, but said that a proposed 25-percent tariff would be unfairly passed to consumers. When Volvo opened its North American plant in June, CEO Hakan Samuelsson said that steep tariffs could threaten jobs at that plant and that eliminating global trade restrictions was t

Dozens buried in Philippines landslide triggered by Typhoon Mangkhut
Hundreds of rescuers in the Philippines dug frantically with shovels and their bare hands on Monday in an attempt to save the lives of dozens of people buried by a landslide triggered at the weekend by Typhoon Mangkhut, the world's strongest storm of the year.  But despite their best efforts, weary aid workers were only able to pull dead bodies from the mud and debris that had engulfed a church and miners' bunkhouse where people had been sheltering from the fierce rain and winds topping 150 miles per hour in the early hours of Saturday morning. Grief-stricken relatives, many of them quietly praying, waited anxiously near the disaster site.  Victorio Palangdan, Itogon's mayor, warned that the chances of finding any survivors were slim, raising the prospect that the previously confirmed Philippine death toll of 65 from the typhoon could significantly rise.  Mr Palangdan told a news conference that of the 40 to 50 people thought buried, there's a "99 per cent (chance) that they are really dead." Itogon, #Philippines. With no chance of getting heavy equipment into the valley, rescue workers are using shovels and their hands to move rock and debris from the landslides.

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.

Lula's guy: Brazilian Left's new candidate Haddad rallies voters who barely recognise him
As the new favourite to face far-Right candidate Jair Bolsonaro in the Brazilian election race, there is only one question on the lips of Fernando Haddad's supporter base: who is he? Last week, jailed former president Luiz Inácio "Lula" da Silva - the firm frontrunner - officially stepped down as the candidate for the centre-left Workers' Party, calling in running mate Mr Haddad as his replacement.  Now, the Workers' Party's strategy is to transfer as much of these votes as possible to Lula's understudy Mr Haddad, the former education minister and São Paulo mayor. Besides Mr Haddad's professorial, technocratic demeanour - a far cry from Mr da Silva's passionate fist-shaking and rabble-rousing - the stand-in candidate is virtually unknown outside of the large urban centres of Brazil's southeast. Nevertheless, early indications show that Mr Haddad, who has seen his voting intentions triple in the last three weeks, is hotly tipped to challenge Mr Bolsonaro in a second-round runoff. Supporters of Brazilian former president Luiz Inacio Lula Da Silva holds a mask of his face Credit: NELSON ALMEIDA / AFP This week, Mr Haddad beings his campaign in the northeast of Brazil, the least developed region of the country and a traditional Workers' Party stronghold.

Industry officials say about 100,000 vacancies in hotel and restaurants need filling in France. They have urged Mr Macron to allow immigrants to take the jobs.  But the off-the-cuff remark by Mr Macron, often derided by critics as the "president of the rich", was immediately mocked on social media. Fort de Brégançon: Emmanuel Macron's 'Riviera Camp David' with view of Mediterranean A video of the exchange went viral, prompting a torrent of posts saying that Mr Macron, 40, a former Rothschild banker married to a chocolate heiress, was out of touch. "Completely disconnected from the reality of French people," one post read. "How can someone show that much contempt, lack of empathy and ignorance in just 30 seconds?" said another. The exchange drew furious criticism from opposition parliamentarians. Laurence Rossignol, a Socialist senator and former minister for families, deplored the president's "unfortunate remarks" three days af

Texas set to eliminate Hillary Clinton from required state curriculum
The Texas Board of Education has voted to eliminate Hillary Clinton and other historical figures from the required curriculum in an effort to "streamline" lessons. The vote does not prevent educators from teaching about Ms Clinton, deaf-blind activist Helen Keller, and Republican Barry Goldwater who was the first Jewish presidential candidate, but it is no longer compulsory for the state's 5.4 million public school students to learn about them. The final vote on the matter is set to take place in November after a period of public consultation.

Turkey's Erdogan defends gift of luxury plane from Emir of Qatar
President Tayyip Erdogan has defended his decision to accept a luxury plane from Qatar at a time of economic hardship, saying it was a gift, not a purchase, and that it had been donated to the Turkish state, not to him personally. State broadcaster TRT Haber said last week the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani had given Erdogan the aircraft, which Turkish media said was a Boeing 747, sparking criticism from Turkey's opposition. A lawmaker from the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP), Sezgin Tanrikulu, had expressed concern that the aircraft had been bought rather than donated, noting that Turkey was in an economic crisis, the Hurriyet newspaper reported.

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.

Carolinas brace for days of floods after Florence's deluge
Thousands of rescues have taken place in the two states and over 650 people were taken to safety in and around Wilmington, North Carolina, said Barbi Baker, a spokeswoman for New Hanover County. The city, which took a direct hit when Florence plowed into the state as a hurricane on Friday, has been largely cut off since then due to storm surges and flooding from the Cape Fear River. As the remnants of Florence moved into the U.S. Northeast, and the sun appeared in some areas for the first time in days, residents of the Carolinas confronted its after-effects, including power outages, impassable roads, and sewage spilling into flooded areas.
