The train, travelling from the capital Yaounde to the economic hub Douala, was crammed with people due to road traffic disruption between the two cities and came off the tracks just before reaching the central city of Eseka, transport minister Edgar Alain Mebe Ngo'o said. Emergency services had been sent from the economic capital to reinforce teams closer to the scene of the accident, while firefighters were coming from Eseka, Doula regional governor Dieudonne Ivaha Diboua said.

BENGUET, Philippines/HONG KONG (Reuters) - Typhoon Haima, the strongest storm to hit the Philippines in three years, killed at least 12 people and inundated vast tracts of rice and corn fields, officials in Manila said on Friday, before it took aim at Hong Kong. Eight of the victims were from the Cordillera region, said Ricardo Jalad, chief of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, citing reports the agency received from provincial officials. In Cagayan alone, where the super typhoon made landfall late on Wednesday with destructive 225 kph (140 mph) winds and heavy rain, between 50,000-60,000 hectares of rice fields were flattened and flooded, said the provincial governor Manuel Mamba.

This is the lush, tropical side of Maui, where rain falls hard and guts great canyons through lava flows and sticky red mud. Is this a realistic test for the average workday for Toyota’s hardcore off-roader, the Tacoma TRD PRO? Maui is covered in Tacomas.
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump greets his wife, Melania, his son Eric and his daughter Ivanka after the third and final 2016 presidential debate at UNLV in Las Vegas on Wednesday night. For 16 months, Donald Trump’s accidental campaign was the hottest thing on TV.

The suspected rapist was immediately questioned by the police and subsequently ordered to stay away from the two women he was accused of assaulting, moved into off-campus housing, and temporarily suspended. "I am determined to do everything possible to ensure that SJSU is a safe, caring, inclusive community," campus president Mary Papazian, said in an email sent to students, according to the Associated Press.
It's a common misconception, but Henrik Fisker’s new electric sedan does not have gullwing doors. Those are butterfly doors, like the ones on the Mclaren F1. The image, which was released on designer-turned-carmaker Henrik Fisker’s official Twitter account on Thursday, depicts a sleek, coupe-like four-door that, to our eyes, vaguely resembles a cross between the Porsche Mission E and the Infiniti Q60. According to Business Insider, Fisker revealed a few additional details about the new car in a letter sent out to select members of the media.

By Philip Pullella CASTEL GANDOLFO, Italy (Reuters) - It may come as a surprise to most people, but about 40 children were born in the bedroom of the pope at the pontifical summer residence south of Rome. Now that bedroom, which became a makeshift delivery room when the residence housed refugees during World War Two, and the rest of the papal apartments have been opened to the public as part of a museum. The frugal Pope Francis decided not to used the villa - similar to but smaller than some of Europe's royal residences, judging it too luxurious and grandiose.
When we heard that Ken Block was dialing up the engine of his all-wheel-drive “Hoonicorn" Ford Mustang to 1,400 horsepower, we figured he had to be up to something interesting.

President Rodrigo Duterte's shock "separation" from the United States has thrown Philippine foreign policy into confusion, with the Americans saying they are baffled and some of his top aides contradicting him. The firebrand leader rarely lets a day pass without taunting or abusing the United States but his latest comments, made during a state visit to Beijing, were the strongest signal he wants to torpedo a 70-year alliance in favour of China and Russia. "I announce my separation from the United States," Duterte said Thursday as he paused to soak up the applause from hundreds of Chinese businessmen in the audience.

A Russian naval task group including the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier was being shadowed through the North Sea by British warships on Thursday as it headed for the Syrian coast. The eight-strong group was the biggest deployment of Russian naval assets seen off British shores in recent years, a Royal Navy spokesman told AFP. The deployment comes weeks after Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said the Admiral Kuznetsov, part of its Northern Fleet, would be sent to the eastern Mediterranean to boost its naval forces in the area.
Nearly 24 hours after Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton went head-to-head for the third and final presidential debate, they found themselves on the same stage again — only this time, for lighthearted ribbing. Every four years, the Al Smith dinner, an annual fundraiser for Catholic charities, offers a moment of levity and self-deprecation at the tail end of grueling campaigns. Trump’s sense of humor and brash attitude didn’t quite translate to the white-tie gala meant to raise money for children in poverty throughout New York.
The National Park Service must attract younger and more racially diverse visitors to the areas it manages, and it will probably uncover more cases of sexual harassment in its workforce of 22,000 employees following a scandal involving demands for sex by male workers from their female colleagues, the service's outgoing director said in an interview Tuesday. Jon Jarvis, who will retire from the park service in January after a 40-year career, was called before Congress in June after a report confirming sexual harassment and a hostile work environment at Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona and Canaveral National Seashore in Florida. Jarvis, who is 63, said he is not retiring in response to those demands but that his term as director automatically ends after a new U.S. president takes office in January.
