Syria's top diplomat told the world's nations Saturday that his country's belief in military victory is greater now because the army "is making great strides in its war against terrorism" with support from Russia, Iran and Lebanon's Hezbollah fighters.

A manhunt was underway on Saturday in northwest Washington state for a gunman who opened fire with a rifle in a shopping mall and killed five people before disappearing under the cover of darkness, authorities said.

Hollande's government has vowed to scrap the Jungle "before winter" and a flurry of preparations underway there suggest the operation may begin shortly.

Newly re-elected British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn called for unity Sunday in his deeply divided party, but risked antagonising his own lawmakers by promising more power to his grassroots supporters. The veteran left-winger was confirmed in his position on Saturday with 61.8 percent of the vote among party members and supporters, seeing off a challenger backed by most of his more centrist lawmakers, who believe he can never lead them into government. In his acceptance speech at the party conference in Liverpool, northwest England, Corbyn pledged to "wipe the slate clean" after accusations of bullying and fears of an irreparable breach in the century-old movement.

Both are roomy, comfortable, and versatile vehicles that come from trustworthy brands with a well-deserved reputation for fuel economy and reliability. As is common in the small SUV segment, either front- or all-wheel drive is available, meaning consumers in both the Snow Belt or the Sun Belt can get the added security of all-weather traction, or the benefit of slightly better fuel economy in front-drive only.

By Helen Murphy and Luis Jaime Acosta CARTAGENA, Colombia (Reuters) - Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos and Marxist rebel leader Timochenko will use a pen made from a bullet on Monday to sign an agreement ending a half-century war that killed a quarter of a million people and made their nation a byword for violence. After four years of talks in Havana, Santos, 65, and Timochenko, nom de guerre for 57-year-old revolutionary Rodrigo Londono, will shake hands on Colombian soil for the first time. The agreement to end Latin America's longest-running war will turn the FARC guerrillas into a political party fighting at the ballot box instead of the battlefield they have occupied since 1964.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said Turkey could join a US-led operation in Syria to retake the Islamic State group's stronghold of Raqa only if Kurdish fighters are not involved, a newspaper reported Sunday. US support for Kurdish forces in Syria is a sore point for Ankara, which considers such fighters to be "terrorists" linked to the Kurdish rebels waging a bloody insurgency across the border in southeast Turkey. Washington, however, sees the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) and its People's Protection Units (YPG) militia as the best forces fighting IS jihadists on the ground in Syria.
Italian officials warned Monday that Switzerland could face consequences after voters in the border canton of Ticino approved a referendum calling on authorities to grant preference to Swiss workers over foreigners in employment.

While the referendum had no practical effect, "Swiss-EU relations are at risk without free circulation of people," Italy's foreign minister, Paolo Gentiloni, said on Twitter.
KEVIN HARVICK: Yeah, we needed a solid day, and really our car was good all weekend. Q. Kevin, you said going into the Chase you were already going max effort and you were already going to go hard, but it seems like there's another way that you can raise your game when you're in adverse situations like you found yourself in after this week. Do you have another notch? How are you performing so well in clutch situations again and again? KEVIN HARVICK: I think it's really the nature of our team. It's one of those things where you get behind a little bit, and I feel like that's something I like because you can motivate yourself and you can motivate everybody around you by your actions and the things that you do and the attitude that you carry to the car on practice days and how you present yourself in the meetings. These guys were all ‑‑ they were mad after qualifying. I was kind of laughing, and it was like, it's going to be fine. I don't know if you guys have noticed but we passed a lot of cars over the last three years. We can pass.
