- Canada's Parliament Hill reopens following Wednesday shooting
By Richard Valdmanis OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadians returned to the grounds of their parliament building on Saturday, three days after a homegrown radical rushed in armed with a rifle after shooting dead a soldier in the second attack on the country's military at home in a week.

Muslims face worsening Islamophobia. And the outrage that many Muslims feel about Western and Israeli policies in the Mideast is fostering a very old problem: anti-Semitism.

- Racquet-smashing Serena earns shot at title and revenge
Racquet-smashing Serena Williams fought back from a set down to beat Caroline Wozniacki Saturday and set up a chance for revenge against Simona Halep in the WTA Finals title match. Halep continued her brilliant run in Singapore with a 6-2, 6-2 dismantling of Poland's Agnieszka Radwanska as the Singapore tournament's surprise package made it to the final on debut. While Halep cruised, Williams' fourth win over Wozniacki this year, including the US Open final, was tough and it was the third time this season that she has been pushed to three sets by the resurgent Dane. The American pushed "reset" after the first set but when Wozniacki brilliantly saved a match point in the third, Williams needed a net cord to get into the third-set tie-breaker after slipping to 1-4 down.
