WASHINGTON ― European diplomats warned the Trump administration on Monday that Europe is prepared to block U.S. efforts to reimpose international sanctions against Iran as long as Tehran continues to comply with its obligations under the nuclear deal. If the U.S. pulls out of the nuclear agreement ― known as the JCPOA ― and reapplies sanctions that target not only Iran, but other countries who do business with Iran, the European Union could take advantage of a statute dating back to the mid-1990s that would protect European companies from being penalized under the sanctions, EU ambassador to the United States David O’Sullivan said Monday.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders suggested Monday that if NFL players who kneel during the national anthem at games are doing so because of police brutality, they should protest the officers instead of the song. “I think if the debate is really for them about police brutality, they should probably protest the officers on the field that are protecting them instead of the American flag,” she said. Later, Sanders was asked to clarify whether she was encouraging players to protest the police.

The letter focused primarily on Francis’s 260-page treatise “Amoris Laetitia” (“The Joy of Love”), published last year. “The pope has advocated the beliefs that obedience to God’s moral law can be impossible or undesirable, and that Catholics should sometimes accept adultery as compatible with being a follower of Christ,” the group said in a release, equating remarriage after divorce to having an affair.

By Maher Chmaytelli and Daren Butler ERBIL, Iraq/ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Iraq's Kurds will go ahead with a referendum on independence on Monday because their partnership with Baghdad has failed, Kurdistan Regional Government President Massoud Barzani said on Sunday, shrugging off international opposition to the vote. In response, the Iraqi government asked the autonomous Kurdish region to hand over control of its international border posts, its international airports and called on foreign countries to stop importing Kurdish crude oil.

Tales of devastation continue to flow out of Puerto Rico, one of the islands tragically struck by Hurricane Maria. Some are being discovered, days after the storm, in “near-death conditions,” according to San Juan’s mayor, Carmen Yulín Cruz. “Just yesterday, we have been canvassing one by one all of our elderly homes, finding our elderly ― and I’m not kidding ― we [had] to transfer 11 of them in near-death conditions, no food, no water, no electricity and really the sanitary conditions were deplorable,” the mayor told CNN’s “New Day” on Tuesday.

On a more human level, it would be interesting to go back in time to World Wars I and II, where a constant refrain of the sailors and airmen who hunted subs was the sheer tedium of the search. Hour after hour after hour of scanning the oceans, in the hope that a needle in the haystack would reveal itself as a sonar contact or a tiny periscope peeking above the surface. If nothing else, farming out sub-hunting to the robots will make chasing subs a bit less dull.

The parents of Otto Warmbier ― the 22-year-old college student who spent more than a year imprisoned in North Korea and died days after returning home with a severe brain injury ― say the world must recognize the rogue nation as a state sponsor of terror. Fred and Cindy Warmbier spoke out Tuesday for the first time since Otto Warmbier’s death during an interview with “Fox & Friends,” condemning Pyongyang officials over the brutal mistreatment of their son. “It was astounding to Cindy and I to discover that North Korea is not listed as a state sponsor of terror,” Fred Warmbier said.
A few days after Hurricane Irma slammed into south Florida ― while there were still tight travel restrictions and curfews in place ― Bette Zirkelbach stocked an ambulance with supplies and raced south. The drive from the panhandle, where she’d taken refuge from the record-breaking storm, to Marathon, a city in Florida Keys, was supposed to take 10 hours. In the wake of the disaster, it took Zirkelbach nearly a full day to reach the low-lying string of islands jutting into the Gulf of Mexico.

For Mr Darwesh, who was not perturbed by the two hour-long queue, it was only the second time he had ever voted in his life.
