The New York Times + 33 other

UNITED NATIONS — President Trump brought a characteristically confrontational message to the United Nations on Tuesday as he vowed to “totally destroy North Korea” if it threatened the United States or its allies and denounced the nuclear agreement with Iran as “an embarrassment” that he may abandon. In his first address to the United Nations General Assembly, Mr. Trump framed the conflicts with “rogue regimes” like North Korea, Iran and Venezuela as a test of the international system. With typically bombastic flourishes like vowing to crush “loser terrorists” and labeling North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, “Rocket Man,” Mr. Trump at times dispensed with the restrained rhetoric many American presidents use at the United Nations. “If the righteous many do not confront the wicked few, then evil will triumph,” he said as the audience of presidents, prime ministers, monarchs and diplomats remained largely stone-faced. “When decent people and nations become bystanders to history, the forces of destruction only gather power and strength.” He asserted that some parts of the world “are going to hell.” He also sought to explain his America First policy to an audience concerned about what it means for United States leadership in the world. From the dais of an organization meant to bring nations together, Mr. Trump argued that nationalism can be the foundation for strong nations to join c…

A magnitude 7.1 earthquake rocked central Mexico on Tuesday, collapsing some buildings, cracking the facades of others and scattering rubble on streets less than two weeks after another tremor killed at least 90 in the country's south.

The Post's Jason Samenow has the latest forecast for Hurricanes Maria and Jose as they approach the Caribbean, Puerto Rico and the Northeast coast. (Elyse Samuels,Monica Akhtar/The Washington Post) As Hurricane Maria bore down on Dominica on Monday evening, some of the most revealing updates about the storm’s havoc came in the succinct, prayerful Facebook posts of Roosevelt Skerrit, the prime minister of the tiny Caribbean island nation. Earlier in the day, Skerrit had warned residents that the looming hurricane would be one of the most dangerous storms to pass over Dominica and or…

Voice of America, Spanish Police Arrest Catalan Officials Over Secession Vote Spanish police arrested at least 12 people Wednesday in raids on Catalan government offices, news reports said, as national authorities intensified a crackdown on the region's preparations for a secession vote that Spain says is illegal. It was the first time Spanish authorities have detained Catalan officials since the campaign for a secession vote in Catalonia began to gather momentum in 2011. The move was the latest spike in tension in the standoff between authorities based in Madrid and pro-independence Catalans. Almost immediately after the news, hundreds of Catalans gathered to angri…

Many Disappointed in Aung San Suu Kyi’s Speech on Rohingya Crisis

Voice of America + 3 other

Voice of America, Many Disappointed in Aung San Suu Kyi’s Speech on Rohingya Crisis Aung San Suu Kyi’s first speech on the weeks-old Rohingya crisis was a nationally televised event that many hoped would signal a new direction or perhaps an inspiring attempt to mend the conflict with the power of oratory. But many observers say the 30-minute address Tuesday did not rise to the occasion, and may have obscured the more serious allegations against the country’s military. “It’s rather an important time and there were lots of expectations both within the country and abroad, especially abroad, that she will come up with something that can really defuse the current crisis,” said…

NAIROBI, Kenya — Kenya’s police tear gassed opposition and ruling party supporters outside the Supreme Court as it delivered its full judgment Wednesday on why it annulled President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election in August. The court annulled Kenyatta’s victory in the August 8 election saying there were irregularities and illegalities. It made the decision in response to opposition leader Raila Odinga’s petition challenging the official results that Kenyatta won with 54 percent of the vote. The electoral commission has set Oct. 17 as the date for a fresh election. Opposition supporters and ru…

Washington Post + 2 other

CANBERRA, Australia — The first 50 refugees to be resettled in the United States under a contentious agreement with Australia will be notified within days that they will be leaving the Pacific island camps where they have languished for years, the Australian prime minister said Wednesday. Former President Barack Obama’s administration agreed to accept up to 1,250 of Australia’s refugees — mostly from Iran, Afghanistan and Sri Lanka — in a deal some saw as repayment for Australia agreeing to accept Honduran and Salvadoran refugees under a U.S.-led resettlement program from a camp in Costa Ric…
