With the confirmed death toll at 71 and the list of unaccounted for people more than 1,000, authorities in Northern California on Friday searched for those who perished and those who survived the fiercest of wildfires ahead of a planned visit by President Donald Trump. The president on Saturday is expected to get a look at the grief and damage caused by the deadliest U.S. wildfire in a century, and he could face resentment from locals for blaming the inferno on poor forest management in California. The number of people unaccounted for grew from 631 on Thursday night to more than 1,000 on Friday, but Sheriff Kory Honea said the list was dynamic and could easily contain duplicate names and unreliable spellings of names.
A man now thought to be one of the most prolific serial killers in the US claims he killed as many as 90 people over four decades. Investigators have been able to close four unsolved murder cases because of the confessions of Samuel Little.

Nearly two decades after the world learned about hanging chads, Florida is under scrutiny again as officials count and recount votes in three statewide races.

Abrams had hoped to become the first black governor of the Deep South state and the first black female governor of any state.
Sweet, wide-eyed Mark Zuckerberg swears he didn’t know anything. The Facebook CEO was shocked and appalled at the conduct of his company, he told reporters on a conference call Thursday, responding to a bombshell New York Times report that Facebook hired a D.C. opposition research firm called Definers Public Affairs which proceeded to undertake all manner of ethically fraught actions on its behalf. “I learned about this yesterday,” Zuckerberg said.
Iraq's President Barham Salih began a visit to Iran on Saturday, where he pledged to improve relations less than two weeks after the United States restored oil sanctions that had been lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal.

Iraq is Iran's second-largest market after China, buying everything from food and machinery to electricity and natural gas.

Gillum posted the video 11 days after the 2018 midterm elections, when tight margins between the two candidates triggered an automatic machine recount.
Before any purists scream blue-murder about how this project ruined a perfectly good Mustang, the body shell in question is a reproduction of a 1960s design — a very good one might we add. Clearly taking some styling tips from the Eleanor Mustang’s bodykit from the movie Gone in 60 Seconds, this seductively sinister fastback muscle car sure looks the part.
Air strikes by the US-led coalition Saturday killed 43 people, mostly civilians, in a holdout of the Islamic State group in eastern Syria, a Britain-based monitor said.

Senators are mounting a new legislative effort to push for a “transparent, credible” investigation into the still-unsolved murder of dissident Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the Hill reports. Following Thursday’s announcement that the Trump administration would impose sanctions on 17 Saudis accused of involvement in the killing, a bipartisan group of six senators said the move was “far from sufficient.” They are calling for additional action to address the brutal killing of the renowned journalist in a crime that has dominated headlines since Khashoggi’s disappearance on October 2. “There must be a transparent, credible investigation into Khashoggi’s murder and with this bill Congress is demonstrating its commitment to accountability and human rights,” New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez, the the ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said in a statement.
