BERLIN (AP) — German Chancellor Angela Merkel pledged early Monday to maintain stability after the Free Democratic Party pulled out of talks on forming a new government with her conservative bloc and the left-leaning Greens, raising the possibility of new elections.
Germany faces the possibility of new elections after the small Free Democrats pulled out of talks on forming a government with chancellor Angela Merkel's conservative bloc and the Greens, saying that the parties were unable to develop an acceptable framework for moving ahead. Free Democrat leader Christian Lindner told reporters that his party decided to withdraw from the drawn-out negotiations rather than further compromise its principles. Without the Free Democrats, Ms Merkel will be forced to try to continue her current governing coalition with the Social Democrats, although that centre-left party has said it will not do so, or she could try to form a minority government, which is seen as unlikely.
NAYPYITAW, Myanmar (AP) — China's foreign minister said Sunday that the international community must help fight poverty and promote development in Myanmar's Rakhine state, which has seen hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims flee amid a military crackdown. Foreign Minister Wang Yi made the comments after meeting in Myanmar's capital, Naypyitaw, with the country's leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, as well as its president, Htin Kyaw, and its powerful military chief, Min Aung Hlaing. More than 600,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled Rakhine for neighboring Bangladesh since late August, when the military launched what it called "clearance operations" in response to insurgent attacks.
China has proposed a three-phase plan for resolving the Rohingya crisis, starting with a ceasefire, that has won the support of Myanmar and Bangladesh, the Foreign Ministry said. More than 600,000 Muslim Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh since late August driven out by a military clearance operation in Buddhist majority Myanmar's Rakhine State. Visiting the Myanmar capital Naypyitaw, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said China believed that the issue could be addressed by a solution acceptable to neighbours Myanmar and Bangladesh through consultations.
NEW DELHI (AP) — People breathing New Delhi's acrid air for the past month have suffered burning eyes and rasping throats, so the notion of thousands of distance runners gulping down lungful after lungful may have seemed strange. But even as the polluted air threatens health, India seems to be embracing physical fitness.
MEXICO CITY (AP) — Tom Brady felt right at home in his first appearance in Mexico by throwing for 339 yards and three touchdowns, to the delight of an adoring crowd, in the New England Patriots' 33-8 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
Conservative Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Monday she would meet the German president to inform him that she had failed to form a coalition government with the Greens and the pro-business Free Democrats (FDP). The decision to meet President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, who has the power to call a new election, signalled that Merkel would not seek a minority government with the Greens after the FDP unexpectedly pulled out of the coalition talks.
Shares of Toshiba Corp <6502.T> fell nearly 5 percent early on Monday, a day after the troubled conglomerate said it would raise 600 billion yen (.4 billion) from a sale of new shares in a key step that would allow it to stay publicly traded. Toshiba's board met on Sunday to approve the plan, which would plug a balance sheet hole left by the company's bankrupt U.S. nuclear power business. The share sale - to 60 overseas investors and amounting to roughly half the company's current market value - combined with tax write-offs would boost Toshiba's assets back above liabilities.
NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) — For the second time in as many days, Zac Cuthbertson established a career high as he scored 31 points and missed just three of 14-shot attempts and Coastal Carolina downed Iona 89-84 on Sunday in day three of the Island of the Bahamas Showcase.
Conservative billionaire Sebastian Pinera will face center-left Senator Alejandro Guillier in a runoff for Chile's presidency next month, after placing first by a wide margin in Sunday's first-round election. Both candidates would keep in place the top copper exporter's longstanding free-market economic model, but Pinera has promised investor-friendly policies to turbocharge growth, while Guillier wants to press on with outgoing President Michelle Bachelet's overhaul of education, healthcare and pensions. With 81.75 percent of votes counted, Pinera, a 67-year-old former president and businessman, had clinched 36.67 percent, falling short of the 50 percent needed for an outright victory, Chile's electoral agency Servel said, adding that the remaining votes would not change the overall outcome.
Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday announced 4 billion pounds of spending on research and development and regional growth strategies, setting out plans to help the economy grow after Brexit. Amid stiff international competition, Britain is looking to carve out a new global role as a leader in "industries of the future" such as artificial intelligence and driverless cars after it exits the European Union in March 2019. Badly damaged by a botched snap election and with Brexit talks running behind schedule, May is looking to stir up some economic optimism to help her fragile minority government through Britain's most uncertain period since World War Two.
CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Casey Hayward made two of the Chargers' five interceptions during a horrific first half by Buffalo rookie quarterback Nathan Peterman, and Los Angeles cruised to a 54-24 victory over the slumping Bills on Sunday.
Britain's aerospace industry could face 1.5 billion pounds a year in extra costs after Brexit if firms exporting components to the European Union face additional checks at the border, industry body ADS Group said on Monday. Britain is struggling to make headway in negotiations with Brussels on arrangements for leaving the EU and the trading arrangements that will follow after Britain leaves the bloc in 2019, fuelling boardroom uncertainty in key sectors like aerospace. The ADS said that failure to agree on a way to harmonise customs processes would have a potentially large financial cost, setting out its concerns in a written submission to a parliamentary inquiry into the impact of Brexit on the industry.
CARSON, California, EE.UU. (AP) — Casey Hayward logró dos de las cinco intercepciones de los Chargers durante una pésima primera mitad del quarterback novato Nathan Peterman, y Los Ángeles humilló el domingo 54-24 a los Bills de Buffalo.
