In 'final column' missing writer Jamal Khashoggi says Arab states can silence media with impunity

Jamal Khashoggi's words could not be more powerful or more poignant. In a column published by the Washington Post on Wednesday night, the missing Saudi journalist says Arab governments have been given free rein by the international community to silence the media at an accelerating rate, in a piece that apparently foreshadowed his own fate. The writer has not been seen since entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul a fortnight ago. Turkish officials say they have obtained audio recordings that suggest he was tortured and killed although the government of Saudi Arabia insists it does not know what happened to the prominent dissident. In a note published with the column, Karen Attiah,...

Trump Renews 'Pocahontas' Attack While Drawing Fire Over Saudis

U.S. 'hopeful' on pastor's release, unaware of a deal with Turkey

NBC News and The Washington Post reported on Thursday that the United States and Turkey had reached an agreement in which some charges against Brunson would be dropped and he would be released at the hearing or soon after. In addition to the U.S. State Department, Vice President Mike Pence, speaking at a briefing, declined to confirm any deal, but he voiced hope for Brunson's release. "We remain hopeful that with the court proceeding tomorrow that Turkey will see its way clear and free this good man who is guilty of nothing and who has been incarcerated for several years in Turkey unjustly," Pence said.

China September exports surge, creating record surplus with U.S. despite tariffs
China September exports surge, creating record surplus with U.S. despite tariffs

Analysts said last month's strong export growth - which might indicate U.S. tariffs are not biting much yet - is unlikely to be sustained. "The big picture is the Chinese exports have so far held up well in the face of escalating trade tensions and cooling global growth, most likely thanks to the competitiveness boost provided by a weaker renminbi," said Julian Evans-Pritchard, senior China economist at Capital Economics. "With global growth likely to cool further in the coming quarters and US tariffs set to become more punishing, the recent resilience of exports is unlikely to be sustained."

Trump's Pressure on North Korea Is Fading

Lately, though, there's been more talk about relieving sanctions on Kim Jong Un's regime. The latest sign came Wednesday after China said it had agreed with North Korea and Russia "it was time to start considering the adjustment" of United Nations sanctions. The same day, President Donald Trump tersely dismissed a suggestion by U.S. ally South Korea that it was reviewing the repeal of one unilateral package of economic restrictions against its neighbor.

Ex-Nigerian president Obasanjo backs former deputy for 2019 election

Nigerian ex-head of state Olusegun Obasanjo backed his former deputy on Thursday for next year's presidential election, ending a public feud that had threatened to undermine the main opposition candidate. Atiku Abubakar, who on Sunday won the race to be the candidate of the opposition People's Democratic Party (PDP), was vice president under Obasanjo from 1999-2007 but their relationship became strained at the time. Opposition to his candidacy by Obasanjo - a former military ruler who was democratically elected when Nigeria switched to civilian rule 19 years ago and remains influential - could have cut Abubakar's access to vital patronage networks needed to mobilise grassroot support...
