When Islamic State fighters were pushed out of the Qayyara airbase in July, they tried to demolish anything left behind. "Daesh did everything they could to make the place unusable," said Maj. Chris Parker, a coalition spokesman, using an Arabic acronym for Islamic State. Now the base, referred to as Q-West by American forces, has become the main staging ground for some 1,000 troops from the U.S.-led coalition along with thousands of soldiers from the Iraqi army and federal police as they try to advance on Mosul.
An Afghan woman immortalised on a celebrated National Geographic magazine cover as a green-eyed 12-year-old girl was arrested Wednesday for living in Pakistan on fraudulent identity papers. The haunting image of Sharbat Gula, taken in a Pakistan refugee camp by photographer Steve McCurry in the 1980s, became the most famous cover image in the magazine's history. Pakistan's Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) arrested Gul for fraud following a two-year investigation on her and her husband, who has absconded.

A Hispanic woman says her white co-workers at an Iowa claims office used images of Donald Trump to racially harass her for months after they learned she was angered by his description of Mexican immigrants as rapists, according to a civil rights lawsuit she filed against her company. Alexandra Avila's co-workers at Sedgwick Claims Management Services — where they administered benefits for Wal-Mart employees — began calling her an "illegal immigrant" even though she's a natural-born U.S. citizen, according to the lawsuit filed Monday in Iowa district court. The suit claims her former co-workers placed a picture of an angry-looking Trump as Avila's computer's screensaver, signed her up to volunteer for his campaign and sent her racist memes, including one that read: "How's Mr. Donald Trump going to deport all these illegals?
For the last few years, Ferrari has followed a model-release schedule that's roughly as regular as the tides—which makes predicting when future models will show their beautiful faces rather predictible.

Huddled under blankets, migrants in the Calais "Jungle" recounted Wednesday how they fled a fire that ripped through tents and shacks in the night after the death knell had sounded for the notorious camp. A French spokesman said desperate migrants had started the blaze, which occurred just hours after the authorities began to demolish the settlement on Tuesday, although camp residents denied the claim. The trio queued outside a registration centre where they hoped to be interviewed later to make their case for being allowed into Britain.
Mercedes-Benz will tell you that the big story with the 2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 and E63 S is the amount of power flowing from its engine. All due respect to the three-pointed star, but its P.R. people are wrong on this one. No, the big story here is that
By Andrew Cawthorne and Alexandra Ulmer CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela's increasingly militant opposition stepped up its push to oust leftist leader Nicolas Maduro on Wednesday with protests that drew hundreds of thousands but also saw unrest leading to dozens of injuries and arrests. The government blamed opposition activists clashing with security forces on a highway out of Caracas. The police force of Miranda, whose governor is opposition leader Henrique Capriles, confirmed the death but did not link it to protesters.

A Wisconsin city clerk raised concerns about opening an early voting site on the state university’s Green Bay campus in part because she feared it would encourage more Democratic-leaning students to vote, a move that some say could suppress the vote along partisan ties. As early voting becomes a more popular choice for people across the nation, political parties have tried to strategically use or block the option, which tends to appeal most to low-income voters who don’t necessarily have flexible schedules or time to wait in line to vote on one designated day. In theory, early voting strengthens a democracy by increasing participation.
French workers escorted by riot police on Tuesday began tearing down shacks and tents in the Calais "Jungle" vacated by migrants who have been bussed to shelters around the country.

Mattresses, blankets, clothes, pots and suitcases left behind by the migrants were also carted away.

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.

The giant cyber attack that paralyzed many US sites last week was likely not the work of a foreign country, the top US intelligence chief said Tuesday. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said the investigation into the massive attack Friday that pounded the underpinnings of the internet was still underway.

A birther debate is heating up in Venezuela as President Nicolas Maduro's opponents seek to push the embattled socialist leader from office at any cost. On Tuesday, the opposition-controlled congress began debating Maduro's "constitutional situation" in which lawmakers vow to present evidence that he's a dual Colombian citizen and therefore constitutionally ineligible to hold Venezuela's highest office. The birther argument and allegations that Maduro has abandoned the presidency — basically that he's not doing his job — have been gaining momentum after the opposition last week declared itself in open rebellion and called for mass demonstrations over the government's decision to suspend a recall referendum seeking the president's removal.
The United States Fish and Wildlife Service wants to see if the multitalented African pouched rat can help combat wildlife crimes by sniffing out illegally trafficked animals, such as the pangolin. The rats, also known as Gambian pouched rats, were once imported to the U.S. as an exotic pet.
The Democratic National Committee on Wednesday asked a U.S. judge to hold the Republican National Committee in contempt of court over allegations that Donald Trump encouraged his supporters to intimidate minority voters. The DNC accused Republicans in a court filing of violating a longstanding consent decree, which restricts Republicans' ability to question voters at the polls and prevent those people from casting a ballot. During the presidential campaign, Republican nominee Trump has asked followers to "watch" for fraud in the Nov.8 presidential election in certain areas where minority voters reside, even though no evidence of fraud exists, the filing said.
A Southeast Asian terror mastermind who has been accused over a series of high-profile attacks will stay in detention at Guantanamo Bay after US officials rejected his bid for release. A US government body tasked with reducing the number of inmates at Guantanamo said that Indonesian militant Riduan Isamuddin, better known by his nom de guerre Hambali, still represented a "significant threat to the security of the United States". The decision is likely to be welcomed by governments in Southeast Asia as signs indicate that the influence of the Islamic State (IS) group has sparked a resurgency in militancy.
