Seventeen years after the devastating 9/11 attacks, President Donald Trump heads to Pennsylvania on Tuesday to pay tribute, as his predecessors have done, to the men and women who died aboard hijacked Flight 93. On September 11, 2001, the plane -- one of four commandeered by Al-Qaeda militants -- crashed into a field in the small town of Shanksville, about 130 miles (200 kilometers) northwest of Washington.

US television giant CBS announced Sunday the immediate departure of CEO Leslie Moonves, one of the biggest scalps in the #MeToo era, following a slew of escalating sexual misconduct allegations. Mr Moonves, who orchestrated CBS's revival into a ratings winner, had been one of the most respected executives in Hollywood until he was accused in late July of inappropriate behavior stretching back decades. Two articles published by The New Yorker magazine - on the same day that his departure was announced and on July 27 - detailed allegations from 12 different women against the 68-year-old television titan. Just hours later, CBS announced that Moonves would depart as chairman, president...
Rinkeby (Sweden) (AFP) - "I'm not afraid, but I am worried," Hassan Abdullahi said while distributing voting papers at a polling station in a disadvantaged Stockholm suburb, as the far-right was set to win record support in Swedish elections Sunday.

"Their roots are Nazi and we know what Nazism has done in Europe," Abdullahi, a member of the ex-Communist Left party, told AFP as he handed out ballots to families arriving at the polling station in a...

Savings rate-chasing is a strategy in which savers consistently use a tool such as Bankrate or MyBankTracker to determine which savings account is offering the highest interest rate, then regularly move their cash reserves to the highest-yielding account. For some savers, this strategy may become increasingly tempting as interest rates continue to rise and consumers find that their current banking institution isn't raising its rates as fast as another. "This is something that we don't recommend," says Jason Reposa, CEO and co-founder of MyBankTracker, a resource for consumers making banking and financial decisions.

Rohingya leaders in Bangladesh on Tuesday challenged the United Nations to ensure Myanmar's generals stand trial after investigators called for top military commanders to be prosecuted for genocide against the minority.

Rose McGowan has weighed in on the controversy surrounding fellow MeToo activist Asia Argento after the actress was accused of sexually assaulting a male actor. McGowan, who along with Argento made sex assault accusations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, said it was important the row didn't "break the momentum of the movement" and urged her friend to be the "person you wish Harvey could have been". Argento, the 42-year-old Italian film-maker and actress, said reports she had a sexual relationship with her accuser were "absolutely false" and that she was linked "in friendship only" to the now 22-year-old. She paid the actor $380,000...

An autopsy shows 20-year-old Mollie Tibbetts was killed by "multiple sharp force injuries."
Cristhian Rivera, who was led into Poweshiek County Court handcuffed and dressed in black-and-white striped prison garb, was ordered by a judge held on $5 million bail on charges of murdering 20-year-old Mollie Tibbetts. The judge rejected a request by Rivera's attorneys to bar reporters and the public from court proceedings. President Donald Trump, whose pledge to build a wall on the border of Mexico was central to his successful run for office, has mentioned the case at least twice since Rivera's arrest, most recently in a videotaped speech posted to Twitter on Wednesday.
