Israel reopens people, goods crossings to
Israel ordered the country's goods and people border crossings with Gaza to be opened on Sunday, just four days after shuttering them following a Palestinian rocket attack that sparked retaliatory air strikes. The move followed efforts to prevent an escalation in violence that has raised fears of a new war between Israel and the Palestinian territory's Islamist rulers Hamas. "The decision comes after a decrease in the violent events in Gaza over the weekend and efforts Hamas made to restrain" demonstrators, Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman's office said in a statement.

Trump, Europeans call Saudi account of
Saudi Arabia said early on Saturday that Khashoggi, a critic of the country's de facto ruler Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, had died in a fight inside the building. Germany called that explanation "inadequate" and questioned whether countries should sell arms to Saudi Arabia, while France and the European Union urged an in-depth investigation to find out what happened to the Washington Post columnist after he entered the consulate on Oct. 2 for documents for his marriage. Turkish officials suspect Khashoggi, a Saudi national and U.S. resident, was killed inside the consulate by a team of Saudi agents and his body cut up.

Donald Trump says US to withdraw from
Donald Trump on Saturday announced the US is to pull out of a landmark nuclear agreement with Russia, accusing the Kremlin of violating its terms. Mr Trump did not offer specific details on how Moscow had violated the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, but during the past four years America has repeatedly argued that Russia has been in breach of the agreement with its aggressive actions against former Soviet states in Europe. "Russia has violated the agreement. They have been violating it for many years," said Mr Trump after a campaign rally in Nevada. "And we're not going to let them violate a nuclear agreement and go out and do weapons and we're not allowed to." Mr Trump hinted that the only way forward might be to include China in a new treaty. Donald Trump talks to reporters before leaving Nevada Credit: Jonathan Ernst/Reuters "We'll have to develop those weapons, unless Russia comes to us and China comes to us and they all come to us and say let's really get smart and let's none of us develop those weapons. But if Russia's doing it and if China's doing it, and we're adhering to the agreement, that's unacceptable," he said. Mr Trump's announcement came as his national security adviser John Bolton was heading to Russia to meet officials. The historic 1987 treaty was followed by a landmark meeting between President Ronald Reagan and Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev. It was seen as a key step in ending the Cold War and some fear that withdrawing from the pact will fuel increased weapons development between China, Russia and the US. The agreement was designed to help protect the security of the US and its allies in Europe and the Far East. John Bolton Credit: AFP It prohibits the United States and Russia from possessing, producing or test-flying ground-launched cruise missiles with a range of 300 to 3,400 miles. However it also curbed America's ability to respond to Chinese activity in the Western Pacific, including its attempts to keep American naval forces at bay. As China was not a signatory to the treaty it has faced no limits on developing intermediate-range nuclear missiles, which have the potential to travel thousands of miles. Mr Trump's recent predecessor Barack Obama chose not to exit the nuclear agreement because of objections from European nations, in particular Germany, and due to fears of a renewed arms race. However Mr Trump's senior staff, including Jim Mattis, defence secretary, have repeatedly broached the subject in recent weeks, highlighting Russia's "untenable" violations of the agreement.

Long queues as Afghan voters defy election
A suicide bomber killed 15 people in Kabul, the most serious of a series of smaller-scale attacks that caused dozens of casualties across the country but did not deter voters who endured long queues to cast their ballot. "Today the people gave an unanswerable response to the enemies of Afghanistan," government spokesman Haroon Chakansuri told reporters. Voting should have been over by the time the suicide bomber struck a polling station in the north of Kabul, killing 10 civilians and five police, but polling stations were kept open longer than normal to cope with large numbers of people who had been unable to cast ballots.
