Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu apologised Sunday after facing criticism for comments in which he seemed to compare a soldier currently on trial for manslaughter with troops killed in combat. In an interview broadcast on Saturday night, Netanyahu was asked if he regretted telephoning the father of Elor Azaria, on trial for shooting a Palestinian assailant in the head as he lay on the ground without posing any apparent threat. "Not at all," Netanyahu told Israel's Channel 2 television from New York, where he had attended the United Nations General Assembly, saying he told the soldier's father to trust the military and its judicial system.

An AFP correspondent in the battered city said a wave of strikes hit areas of the opposition-controlled east of the city from dawn, in particular the Al-Mashhad and Sayf al-Dawla districts, sparking large fires. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitor, said "dozens of raids" had hit districts of east Aleppo after midnight on Sunday, with many wounded and at least two civilians killed. It was the fourth day of intense air raids on the city since a defiant Syrian regime launched a new assault to retake all of Aleppo following the collapse of a short-lived ceasefire brokered by Russia and the United States.
By John Whitesides WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The New York Times endorsed Democrat Hillary Clinton for the White House on Saturday, saying she was more qualified than Republican presidential rival Donald Trump to handle the challenges facing the United States. The newspaper described Clinton as "one of the most tenacious politicians of her generation" and said she had displayed a command of policy and diplomatic nuance while building a reputation for grit and bipartisan cooperation. "A lifetime’s commitment to solving problems in the real world qualifies Hillary Clinton for this job, and the country should put her to work," the Times said of the former secretary of state and U.S. senator from New York.
Electricity was restored to most of Puerto Rico by Saturday following a rare, island-wide blackout caused by a power plant fire, the territory's power utility said Saturday.

Following revelations by Daily Beast reporter Gideon Resnick regarding investor Palmer Luckey’s financial support of a pro-Donald Trump group, the Oculus co-founder and his Facebook-owned VR company came under scrutiny. Especially since what Luckey is behind is Nimble America, a “sh*tposting” group that boasts it “conquered Reddit and [drives] narrative on social media, conquered the [mainstream media],” and now wants to get its “most delicious memes in front of Americans whether they like it or not.” Memes that, for the most part, degrade Hillary Clinton and her supporters in rather heinous ways. The Daily Beast, among other things, credited Luckey with created and writing for the Reddit account “NimbleRichMan,” which published several posts about its efforts to troll the presidential election with anti-Clinton memes and other viral ephemera.

Eight people, including a three-year-old girl, were hurt in a shooting that Baltimore police called an act of “retaliatory violence” on Saturday night, authorities said. A spokesman of the Baltimore Police Department told reporters at a news conference that the shooting appeared to be in response to a fatal shooting on Labor Day that left one person dead and others injured. Police said the attack was “planned” and involved three shooters, two with handguns and one with a long gun that seemed to be a shotgun. Police said all the eight victims were expected to recover from their injuries. Further details were not immediately available on the shooting or identities of the shooters. A separate shooting in Baltimore on Saturday left two people with non-life-threatening injuries, police said. (Reuters) See more news-related photo galleries and follow us on Yahoo News Photo Tumblr.
EU monitors said Sunday that Gabon's top court had failed to rectify vote-counting "anomalies" in fiercely-disputed elections in which President Ali Bongo extended his family's rule in the oil-rich nation into a fifth decade. The European Union's electoral observer mission said it "regretted" that Gabon's Constitutional Court, which on Saturday ruled against opposition demands for a recount, "had been unable to satisfactorily rectify anomalies observed during the count". Opposition leader Jean Ping had filed a legal challenge after Bongo was declared the winner by a mere 6,000 votes in the August 27 election.

Tech giant Samsung Electronics Co Ltd said on Sunday it was delaying the start of new Galaxy Note 7 smartphone sales in South Korea by three days to Oct. 1, a move it says is needed for speedy completion of the ongoing recall in the country. Samsung announced on Sept. 2 a recall of at least 2.5 million Galaxy Note 7 smartphones in 10 markets, including South Korea, due to a faulty battery causing the phones to catch fire, offering refunds or replacement devices using safe batteries. The firm hopes to complete the recall quickly and restart sales in the fourth quarter to salvage earnings, but the latest hitch in South Korea underscore continuing challenges in those efforts.

If she wins election in November, the conventional wisdom is that Hillary Clinton’s handling of foreign affairs will be less restrained than Barack Obama’s, and that she’d be more willing to use military force to advance U.S. objectives in various corners of the world. Unlike some of the things of which Clinton has been (bizarrely) accused, this particular claim isn’t without some basis. As I’ve observed, most of her close advisors are card-carrying liberal interventionists (or worse), which reinforces concerns that a future Clinton administration would be ready to repeat the same policies that have consistently disappointed in the past.
The University of Dakota is investigating two racially charged photos that were reportedly taken by students and posted online in a 48-hour period. The president of the University, Mark Kennedy, said in a statement that he’s appalled at the messages that were posted to social media. Etonde Maloke, a student at the university, shared what happened on her Facebook page. Maloke said that her friend left her phone in a room and three students, pictured in the photo laughing and throwing up peace signs, took her friend’s phone and posted the picture, with the offensive caption, to her Snapchat without permission.
Turks donned shorts and gathered in central Istanbul on Sunday to condemn the assault of a young nurse who was attacked on a bus for wearing shorts. With chants of "Don't interfere with my shorts!" the protest aimed to show solidarity with Aysegul Terzi, who was kicked in the face by a man, Abdullah Cakiroglu, on Sept. 12. Cakiroglu confessed to attacking Terzi for what he called her "inappropriate" clothing, yet was released from custody despite expressing no remorse, according to Turkish news reports.

The United States accused Russia of “barbarism” in Syria on Sunday as warplanes supporting Syrian government forces pounded Aleppo and Moscow said ending the civil war was almost “impossible”. A diplomatic solution to the fighting looked unlikely as U.S. and Russian diplomats disagreed at a U.N. Security Council meeting called to discuss the violence, which has escalated since a ceasefire collapsed last week. Rebels, who are battling President Bashar al-Assad’s forces for control of Aleppo, said any peace process would be futile unless the “scorched earth bombing” stopped immediately. Capturing the rebel-held half of Syria’s largest city, where more than 250,000 civilians are trapped, would be the biggest victory of the civil war for Assad’s forces. They have achieved their strongest position in years thanks to Russian and Iranian support and launched a fresh offensive for a decisive battlefield victory on Thursday. Residents and rebels say thousands have been killed in the new strikes. “What Russia is sponsoring and doing is not counter terrorism, it is barbarism,” U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, told the 15-member council.
