Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said Wednesday he wants US troops out of his country in the next two years and is willing to scrap defence pacts with longtime ally Washington if necessary. The comments follow a series of anti-American tirades by the firebrand leader, who has repeatedly attacked the US while cosying up to Beijing, upending his nation’s foreign policy in comments that have sometimes been quickly retracted. "I want, maybe in the next two years, my country free of the presence of foreign military troops," Duterte told an economic forum in Tokyo, in a clear reference to US forces.
A federal judge on Tuesday ordered Arizona lawman Joe Arpaio to stand trial in December on a criminal contempt charge of violating the terms of a court ruling against the controversial sheriff in a 2007 racial profiling case. The latest court order setting Arpaio's trial date for Dec. 6 means that the six-term Maricopa County sheriff will be spared from facing the contempt charge in court until well after his bid for re-election on Nov. 8. Under contempt proceedings approved by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton, Arpaio is accused of disobeying the terms of a 2011 court injunction barring his officers from stopping and detaining motorists based solely on suspicion that they were in the country illegally.

GOP nominee Donald Trump has indulged a fondness for conspiracy theories that seems inversely proportional to his chances of winning the White House. While Iraqi and U.S. officials are closely coordinating the fight against the terrorist group, which has held Mosul for more than two years, both Washington and Baghdad have made clear Iraq is calling the shots. At times, Baghdad’s lead has even caused open frustration among the U.S. military brass — the operation suffered numerous false starts — making it hard to believe that Obama’s political calculus and the U.S. electoral cycle somehow decided Iraq’s military strategy.

Qatar began three days of mourning on Monday after the death of former emir Khalifa bin Hamad Al-Thani, who oversaw the start of the country's transformation into an energy powerhouse. Prayers took place at the national mosque after which the former ruler -- who was deposed in a bloodless coup by his son Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani in 1995 -- was buried in Al Rayyan on the western fringes of Doha. Many Qataris took to social media to express their condolences and the US ambassador in Qatar, Dana Shell Smith, gave a statement to local media saying she was "saddened to learn of the passing".

Hamilton was part of a team camped in a heavily crevassed area known as the Shear Zone, around 25 miles (40.23 km) south of McMurdo Station, the largest of the three U.S. research stations in Antarctica.

Samsung recalled the phone and issued replacements that were believed to be safe, but then they began to explode without warning as well.

By Jon Herskovitz AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - A nurse who contracted the Ebola virus while treating the first person diagnosed with the deadly disease in the United States has reached a settlement with the Dallas hospital where she was in a team caring for the man, a statement on Monday said. Terms of the deal between the hospital's owner, Texas Health Resources, and nurse Nina Pham, the first person infected with Ebola in the United States, were not disclosed. Pham sued last year, saying that Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital did not do enough to prevent her from contracting the deadly virus and invaded her privacy after she was diagnosed with it.
Convincing North Korea to abandon nuclear weapons is a "lost cause," America's top intelligence official said, causing concern in the State Department and ally South Korea over an issue of long-standing US policy. The United States has always maintained it cannot accept North Korea as a nuclear state and, under President Barack Obama, has made any talks with the North conditional on Pyongyang first making some tangible commitment towards denuclearisation.
While you probably think of Honda as a fairly fuel-efficient carmaker, the company actually lags far behind many other big automotive brands when it comes to offering hybrid and electric cars. CEO Takahiro Hachigo wants to see the majority of Honda’s American sales be hybrids and EVs by 2030, according to Automotive News. Honda will shoot to get those categories to make up two-thirds of its cars and trucks worldwide by that point, Hachigo told AN, but “the ratio will be far higher in the U.S.” Plug-in vehicles, he said, will make up the core of the American market.

Venezuela's opposition-majority legislature declared Sunday that President Nicolas Maduro's government had committed a coup d'etat by blocking a referendum on removing him from power, vowing mass protests and international pressure. The measure came during an emergency session on the economic and political crisis gripping the South American oil giant, which briefly descended into chaos when a group of Maduro supporters forced its way past security guards and burst into the National Assembly, causing lawmakers to halt the proceedings for 45 minutes.
