That has less to do with what Biden has done than with what he has managed to avoid, namely terrifying an already-addled nation with the sense of a West Wing in utter disarray, unwilling to answer simple questions about when the president first learned that he was sick or what the White House Medical Unit is doing to keep others in the building safe. At the moment, Biden is teaching a master class on letting your opponent's candidacy self-destruct,” tweeted David Wasserman of the Cook Political Report, which analyzes congressional races.
The UK, France, and Germany this week pledged to sanction Russia over the August 20 poisoning of Alexei Navalny, a vocal critic of President Vladimir Putin. The sanctions will target "individuals deemed responsible" and "an entity involved in the Novichok program," France and Germany said. It will likely have no effect in Moscow.
Nine prisoners were killed when rival gangs clashed with knives Friday in one of the Philippines' most overcrowded prisons, officials said. It was not immediately clear what set off the violence between the Sputnik and Commando gangs before dawn at New Bilibid Prison in metropolitan Manila. Seven other inmates were wounded in the clash, Bureau of Corrections spokesman Gabriel Chaclag said.
President Trump continued to hail an experimental monoclonal antibody treatment as a “cure” for COVID-19, telling conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh in a Friday interview that it sped his recovery from the disease and was “better than a vaccine.” “I was not in great shape, but we have a medicine that healed me, that fixed me,” Trump said of the antibody “cocktail” manufactured by Regeneron Pharmaceuticals. Since being released on Monday from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where he was treated for three days after being admitted with a high fever, chills and breathing problems, Trump has often pointed to the antibody therapy he undertook at the hospital as a “cure” for COVID-19.
Photos show a path of destruction in hurricane-weary Louisiana after Delta made landfall as a Category 2 storm Friday night. Hundreds of thousands remain without power in a state already reeling from the devastation of Hurricane Laura in August, which killed at least 26 people. While it rapidly weakened upon landfall, Delta further damaged an already hard-hit area — particularly in towns like Lake Charles, Louisiana, where repairs from Laura were still incomplete.
A senior executive for Chinese communications giant Huawei Technologies has been denied access to most of the documents her lawyers hoped to use to help prevent her extradition to the United States. Canada arrested Meng Wanzhou, the daughter of Huawei's founder and the company's chief financial officer, at Vancouver's airport in late 2018. It says Meng, 48, committed fraud by misleading the HSBC bank about the company's business dealings in Iran.
Domestic tourism in China saw a robust rebound over the just-ended Golden Week holiday, encouraged by the country's success in stamping out the novel coronavirus, although levels were still well short of last year. Tourism sites were visited by 637 million domestic tourists over the eight-day National Day holiday that started Oct. 1, 79% of last year's total, China's Ministry of Culture and Tourism said in a statement on Thursday. Domestic tourism revenues stood at 466.56 billion yuan ($68.7 billion), it added, down from nearly 650 billion yuan a year earlier.
North Korea unveiled what appears to be a massive new intercontinental ballistic missile at a big military parade Saturday. Expert North Korea watchers said in early analysis the road-mobile, liquid-fueled missile was massive, with one suspecting that it might be capable of carrying multiple nuclear warheads. "We will continue to strengthen war deterrence for self-defense to deter, control and manage all dangerous attempts and threatening acts, including ever-growing nuclear threats, from hostile forces," North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said Saturday.
Eric Trump really spun himself into a confusing web with this one. The first son and campaign surrogate to his father, President Donald Trump, attacked former Vice President Joe Biden in a tweet on Thursday that appeared to refute reality — and which quickly sparked bewilderment online. He spoke after the president said he would no longer participate in a debate against Mr Biden next week, citing the debate commission's announcement that it would change the event to be virtual instead of in-person following his Covid-19 diagnosis.
China said it dispatched ships and planes to track the U.S. guided-missile destroyer John S. McCain as it passed near Chinese-held islands in the South China Sea. The People's Liberation Army accused the U.S. warship of trespassing into Chinese territorial waters on Friday near the Paracel Islands — called Xisha by China — during the latest freedom of navigation missions by the U.S. Navy aimed at defying China's vast claims in the strategic waterway. Spokesperson for the PLA's Southern Theater Command Col. Zhang Nandong said Beijing demanded the U.S. end such actions, calling them “blatant navigation hegemony and military provocation” that “seriously violated China's sovereignty and security interests, and gravely jeopardized peace and stability in the South China Sea.”

Malaysia's maritime authorities said on Saturday they had detained 60 Chinese nationals and six Chinese-registered fishing vessels they said were trespassing into the Southeast Asian country's waters. Malaysia reported 89 intrusions by Chinese coastguard and navy ships between 2016 and 2019, amid escalating tensions between the United States and China over Beijing's claims to most of the resource-rich South China Sea, which is also a major trade route. The Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) said the fishing vessels and crew were detained in an operation off the coast of the southern state of Johor on Friday.
Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Cal Cunningham refused on Friday to address whether other sexual affairs could surface days after The Associated Press reported his intimate encounter this summer with a public relations consultant. Cunningham is in a closely contested, expensive race with Republican Sen. Thom Tillis that could determine control of the Senate. The U.S. Army Reserve officer and Raleigh attorney on Oct. 2 acknowledged the existence of sexually suggestive text messages between him and a woman, both of whom are married, and apologized for hurting his family and supporters.
Hope Hicks, the senior aide whose positive COVID-19 test result led to the president disclosing his own last Friday, showed up to work the day after self-quarantining aboard Air Force One despite experiencing coronavirus symptoms, according to a new Washington Post report. Hicks tested negative last Wednesday but began to feel sick at a MAGA rally in Minnesota later the same day, leading to the self-quarantine. Once she was at the White House the next day, she discovered she had tested positive for the virus and went home, but only told President Donald Trump and a few senior aides about it, infuriating coworkers in close contact with her, according to the Post.
As tumultuous as the three months since the reopening have been, however, public health officials and Disney World's unions say there have been no coronavirus outbreaks among workers or guests. So far, Disney's wide-ranging safety measures appear to be working. We have no issues or concerns with the major theme parks at this point,” said Dr. Raul Pino, director of the Florida Department of Health in Orange County, which includes Disney World.
A man from Singapore was sentenced to 14 months in prison Friday for spying by passing to the Chinese government valuable, but unclassified, military and political information that he had duped Americans into giving him. Jun Wei Yeo admitted participating in an elaborate ruse under the direction of Chinese intelligence operatives that recruited unsuspecting U.S. government employees into writing reports that he said would be sent to clients in Asia. The reports were instead transmitted to the Chinese government as part of what the Trump administration has alleged is a broader effort by China to steal American secrets, including cutting-edge research, for Beijing's economic gain.
Japan's Maritime Self-defense Force conducted anti-submarine drills in the South China Sea on Oct. 9, deploying three vessels including a helicopter aircraft carrier and a submarine, according to the Japanese defence ministry. Nearly all of the energy-rich waters of the South China Sea are claimed by China, which has established military outposts on artificial islands in the area. The United States has accused China of militarising the South China Sea and trying to intimidate Asian neighbours who might want to exploit the area's extensive oil and gas reserves.
Bhagavan "Doc" Antle, who was featured in Netflix's "Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem, and Madness," has been indicted on charges of wildlife trafficking and animal cruelty. Antle is the owner of wildlife park Myrtle Beach Safari in South Carolina, which lets visitors pet and cuddle with tiger cubs. The Office of the Attorney General of Virginia announced on Friday the findings of a months-long investigation, which found that Antle and the owner of another wildlife park in Virginia had trafficked lion cubs between Virginia and South Carolina.

Belarus' authoritarian president on Saturday visited a prison to talk to opposition activists, who have been jailed for challenging his re-election that was widely seen as manipulated and triggered two months of protests. President Alexander Lukashenko spent more than four hours talking to his jailed political foes at the Minsk prison that belongs to Belarus' State Security Committee, which still goes under its Soviet-era name, KGB. Lukashenko's office said that “the goal of the president was to hear everyone's opinion."
