Firefighters wrestle to control massive California wildfire
An out-of-control California wildfire that has already destroyed nearly 700 homes in its path of destruction crept closer to the upscale hillside community of Montecito on Tuesday despite calmer winds that slowed its progress. The Thomas Fire, which broke out on Dec. 4 near the community of Ojai, has since traveled 27 miles (43 km) to become the fifth-largest blaze in state history. It has blackened more than 366 square miles (948 square kilometers) in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, an area larger than New York City.

U.S. Congress to let Iran deadline pass, leave decision to Trump
By Patricia Zengerle WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Congress will allow a deadline on reimposing sanctions on Iran to pass this week, congressional and White House aides said on Tuesday, leaving a pact between world powers and Tehran intact at least temporarily. In October, Trump declined to certify that Iran was complying with the nuclear agreement reached among Tehran, the United States and others in 2015. Congressional leaders have announced no plans to introduce a resolution to reimpose sanctions before Wednesday's deadline and aides say lawmakers will let the deadline pass without action.

China Is Still Angry Over the Last Taiwan Crisis (And Its Military Is Ready)
Thus, despite the growing threat it faces from an increasingly powerful China and the high uncertainty surrounding the future of the region, circumstances—particularly the potential for Beijing to alienate Seoul should the relationship continue to sour—could in fact turn more favorable for Taiwan, thus creating an opportunity to play a greater role in regional security. Twenty-one years, as Taiwanese were readying to hold their country’s first direct presidential election later in March, China flexed its military muscles by holding a series of military exercises and firing missiles within thirty-five miles off the ports of Keelung and Kaohsiung, causing a panic in Taiwan and prompted U.S. President William J. Clinton to deploy a carrier battle group to international waters near Taiwan.

'Trump you failed to protect your nation', New York bomb suspect wrote ahead of failed attack
The New York bomb suspect wrote "Trump you failed to protect your nation" on Facebook before heading to a busy transit hub to set off a pipe bomb, prosecutors said on Tuesday. Akayed Ullah, from Bangladesh, has been charged with providing material support to terrorists and using weapons of mass destruction, following the failed suicide bomb attack on Monday.   The 27-year-old was arrested after setting off a pipe bomb strapped to his body at one of New York''s busiest commuter hubs which left four other people injured.   He later told police that he carried out the attack "for the Islamic State (Isil)," according to court papers filed by federal prosecutors.   Ullah posted his message to Trump on his Facebook account on the morning of the attack.   Ullah''s passport was found at his home covered in handwritten notes, including one that read: "O America, die in your rage."   pipe bomb suspect Akayed Ullah Credit:  New York City Taxi & Limousine Commission  Mr Trump has said he would end immigration provisions in response to the attack.    Speaking at the White House on Tuesday the president highlighted that two recent attacks in New York involved foreign nationals living in the US on immigration programs.   Ullah first arrived in the US in 2011 on a visa available to those with family connections in the country.    Sayfullo Saipov, the 29-year-old Uzbek immigrant who killed eight people in an attack in November, was living in the US under a diversity lottery program which gives permanent resident visas to around 50,000 applicants a year.    Five people were injured in the Isil-inspired attack Mr Trump said Congress "must get involved immediately" as he vowed that the two immigration programs "will be ended".   It is believed Ullah became radicalised after he began watching pro-Isil material online in 2014 and carried out his attack because he was angry over US policies in the Middle East, prosecutors said.   The bomb, described by authorities as a low-tech device, exploded inside an underpass leading to three train lines and the Port Authority Bus Terminal near Times Square, the nation''s busiest bus station.   Police respond to a report of an explosion near Times Square on Monday, Dec. 11, 2017, in New York Credit: AP He has been charged with criminal possession of a weapon, supporting an act of terrorism and making a terrorist threat, New York Police said.   US prosecutors also brought federal charges including using a weapon of mass destruction, which carry a maximum sentence of life in prison.   Investigators found a nine-volt battery inside Ullah''s trouser pocket, as well as fragments from a metal pipe and the remnants of what appeared to be fairy lights attached to wires.   Officials said Ullah told investigators he built the bomb at his Brooklyn home a week before the attack, filling the pipe with metal screws to maximize damage.     Meanwhile investigators in Bangladesh were questioning Ullah''s wife - with whom he has a six-month old son - and her family, according to US officials.

Robert Mugabe flies to Singapore in his first trip since being ousted
 Zimbabwe''s former president Robert Mugabe has left the country for medical checks in Singapore, his first foreign travel since the army forced him from office last month, a state security official said on Tuesday. The 93-year-old, who ruled the southern African nation for 37 years, resigned after the army and his ruling ZANU-PF party turned against him when it became clear that his 52-year-old wife, Grace, was being groomed as his successor. Until recently the world''s oldest head of state, Mugabe had a reputation for extensive and expensive international travel, including regular medical trips to Singapore - a source of public anger among his impoverished citizens. He left Harare with Grace and aides on Monday evening, the official said. He is expected to make a stop-over in Malaysia, where his daughter, Bona, is expecting a second child. "He has gone for a routine medical trip to Singapore," said the official, who has organised Mugabe''s security protection but who is not authorised to speak to the media. "He was due for a check-up but events of the last few weeks made it impossible for him to travel." The trip means Mugabe will not be in Zimbabwe when ZANU-PF endorses President Emmerson Mnangagwa as its leader and presidential candidate for next year''s elections during a one-day special congress on Friday. The security official would not say how Mugabe was travelling although the privately owned NewsDay newspaper said he was on a state-owned Air Zimbabwe plane. Mugabe was granted immunity from prosecution and assured of his safety under his resignation deal, a source of frustration to many Zimbabweans who accused him of looting state coffers and destroying the economy during his time in power. Another government official told Reuters last month Mugabe had been due to travel to Singapore on Nov. 16 but was unable to leave because the military had confined him to his private home the previous day. George Charamba, a senior information ministry official, declined to comment. Under Zimbabwe''s Presidential Pension and Retirement Benefits Act, a former head of state is entitled to perks including limited foreign travel and medical insurance. "These are very standard features of a retired president," another government official said, trying to head off any controversy. "You are making a storm out of nothing."

A 27-year-old immigrant from Bangladesh detonated a homemade pipe bomb strapped to his body in a crowded New York subway passage during the morning rush hour Monday, wounding three people and putting the city on edge just six weeks after a deadly truck attack. Akayed Ullah told police investigators he wanted to avenge US airstrikes on the Islamic State group and was also inspired by Christmas terror plots in Europe -- choosing the location for his attack by Christmas posters on the subway walls, US media reported. President Donald Trump seized upon the failed attack to call for tougher US immigration rules, saying the current 'lax' policy 'allows far too many dangerous, inadequately vetted people to access our country'.

The Tasmanian tiger was doomed long before humans began hunting the enigmatic marsupial, scientists said Tuesday, with DNA sequencing showing it was in poor genetic health for thousands of years before its extinction. Scientists genetically mapped the animal -- also known as a thylacine -- using the genome of a pup preserved more than century ago in a jar. The research revealed the creature began to undergo a decline in genetic diversity more than 70,000 years ago, leaving it less resilient to environmental change even before Aborigines are believed to have first inhabited the continent 65,000 years ago.

U.S. judge warns of mistrial in Nevada rancher Bundy's trial
A U.S. federal judge in the criminal conspiracy trial of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and three other men on Monday warned that prosecutors' failure to produce documents that could support defense arguments may lead to a mistrial. The four men, including two of Bundy's sons Ammon and Ryan, are accused of conspiring to use the threat of force in a 2014 armed standoff with federal agents near Bundy's ranch. The revolt was sparked by the court-ordered roundup of Bundy's cattle by government agents over his refusal to pay fees required to graze the herd on federal land.
