At least $9bn in insurance claims from California firesInsurance claims from the recent devastating California wildfires that killed at least 89 people and destroyed 19,000 homes and businesses have reached at least $9 billion, the state's insurance commissioner said Wednesday. "The devastating wildfires of 2018 were the deadliest and costliest wildfire catastrophes in California's history," said California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones. Most of the insurance payouts -- some $7 billion -- concern the Camp Fire in Northern California, which wiped out the town of Paradise and killed 86 people, making it the deadliest wildfire in recent California history.

The war in Yemen is seen as a proxy war between Iran and its key regional rival Saudi Arabia.

Attorneys for ex-Baylor student break silence over rape case

Attorneys for ex-Baylor student break silence over rape caseAttorneys for a former Baylor University student accused of rape have broken their silence after a judge allowed the former fraternity president to avoid serving jail time, attacking the ex-fraternity president's accuser and saying she gave "inconsistent" statements to the prosecution. Attorneys Mark Daniel and Tim Moore said that a statement in a Waco, Texas, court Monday by the woman who accused Jacob Walter Anderson was "riddled with distortions and misrepresentations." They said Anderson and the woman were seen by many people "kissing passionately" at a fraternity party where she says the assault occurred. Anderson's attorneys had declined comment when Judge Ralph Strother accepted a plea agreement Monday allowing Anderson to avoid jail or be listed as a sex offender.

Erdogan says Turkey will start new military operation against US-backed Kurdish fighters in Syria within days

Erdogan says Turkey will start new military operation against US-backed Kurdish fighters in Syria within daysTurkey will launch a new operation in Syria within days against a US-backed Kurdish militia that Ankara considers a terrorist group, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Wednesday. "We will start an operation to free the east of the Euphrates from the separatist terrorist organisation in the next few days," Mr Erdogan said during a speech in Ankara, referring to territory held by the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG). Turkey says the YPG is a "terrorist offshoot" of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which has waged an insurgency against the Turkish state since 1984. The PKK is blacklisted as a terror group by Ankara and its Western allies. US forces have worked closely with the YPG under the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) alliance against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil). "The target is never American soldiers but terrorist organisation members active in the region," Mr Erdogan told the audience at a defence industry summit. Britons killed after joining Kurdish forces in Syria There are US forces with the SDF east of the Euphrates as well as in the flashpoint city of Manbij, which is west of the river. Washington's relationship with the YPG, seen as a key ally, is one of the main sources of tensions between Turkey and the US. Ankara has repeatedly lambasted Washington for providing military support to the Kurdish militia. Mr Erdogan has previously threatened to attack areas held by the YPG. In a bid to avoid any clash, the Nato allies agreed a "roadmap" for Manbij in June. His comments came a day after the Pentagon announced the setting up of US observation posts on the northeast Syria border region intended to prevent altercations between the Turkish army and the YPG despite calls from Ankara not to go ahead with the move. Mr Erdogan claimed Turkey was not being protected from terrorists but "terrorists were being protected" from possible action by Turkey.

Chinese state media urges Canada to defy U.S., free Huawei exec

Chinese state media urges Canada to defy U.S., free Huawei execSHANGHAI/BEIJING (Reuters) - Canada should distance itself from U.S. "hegemonism" and grant unconditional freedom to Meng Wanzhou, a top executive of China's Huawei detained in Vancouver on Washington's request, state-owned tabloid Global Times said in a Thursday editorial. Meng, the chief financial officer of Huawei Technologies, has been accused by U.S. prosecutors of misleading banks about transactions linked to Iran, putting the banks at risk of violating sanctions. The United States needs to make a formal extradition request within 60 days of her arrest, which a Canadian judge will weigh to determine whether the case against Meng is strong enough.
