Afghanistan in shock after death of powerful police commander
U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said it was too soon to say if the death of Gen. Abdul Razeq, the police commander in southern Kandahar, would hurt voter turnout, but added that the U.S. military's mission was unaltered. "We need to find who's done this," Mattis told reporters traveling with him in the southeast Asian city-state of Singapore. "But right now, we are going toward the election and we will continue to defend the Afghan people." Razeq, a survivor of numerous previous attacks, was killed outside the governor's office in the southern province on Thursday, when a bodyguard opened fire on a group of officials as they left a meeting.

Donald Trump threatens to cut $66 million in aid to Honduras unless migrant 'caravan' is stopped
Donald Trump, the US president, threatened on Tuesday to cut off aid to Honduras unless the country took steps to halt a migrant caravan, which has doubled in size since it set off from a gang-plagued city on Saturday. The group, now believed to be 3,000 people strong, was confronted by riot police on the Honduras-Guatemalan border, but by Monday evening had managed to cross. The organiser of the northern-bound group, Bartolo Fuentes, a Honduran former politician, was then detained by Guatemalan police. Mr Trump tweeted that he was considering ending financial assistance to Honduras, worth nearly $66 million (£50m) in 2019. "The United States has strongly informed the President of Honduras that if the large Caravan of people heading to the U.S. is not stopped and brought back to Honduras, no more money or aid will be given to Honduras, effective immediately!" he said.

French foie gras makers say they are ready if bird flu returns
French foie gras makers, still recovering from two severe bird flu crises that ravaged flocks, said on Thursday they would be able to face any new outbreak thanks to strict security measures but prices will remain high to make up for increased costs. France, which has one of the largest poultry flocks in the European Union, is one of the countries that was most affected by the H5N8 bird flu virus that spread through wild birds across the continent last year. Of course some cases may break out at any time but by no means we will be in the same situation, we'll be able to deal with it very quickly," Marie-Pierre Pe, director of French foie gras makers group CIFOG, told reporters.
