A strong wind gust brought down an Aeromexico plane carrying 103 people in northern Mexico, leading to a fiery crash that left dozens aboard injured but no fatalities, Durango state officials say.

Aeromexico's Flight 2431 was en route from Durango, Mexico, to Mexico City on Tuesday when it went on a rapid descent moments after taking off, airline and state officials said.

SMARTPHONE SALES: Huawei overtakes Apple in sales for the first time
Huawei just reached a major milestone, passing Apple to become the world's second largest smartphone seller. The Chinese smartphone maker sold around 54 million phones last quarter, up more than 40% compared to the same period last year, according to research firms IDC, Canalys and IHS Markit. That was enough to not only beat Apple (AAPL), but also narrow the gap with market leader Samsung (SSNLF). Samsung sold more than 70 million phones last quarter, down about 10% from the same time last year. "The continued growth of Huawei is impressive, to say the least, as is its ab...

Did Donald Trump call the European Union a 'foe' of the United States?
Donald Trump named the European Union, Russia and China as foes to the United States during an interview at his golf club in Scotland. "I think we have a lot of foes," Trump told CBS News in an interview segment that aired Sunday on "Face the Nation." "I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade. Now you wouldn't think of the European Union, but they're a foe." The President added that "Russia is a foe in certain respects. China is a foe economically, certainly they are a foe. But that doesn't mean they're bad. It d... (Click Here To Read More)

US Court Rejected Nigeria’s Request to Cancel N2.7trn Fine - Trending News
District Circuit Court in Washington DC has dismissed the Federal Government’s request for it to set aside its $8.9 billion arbitration award against Nigeria over alleged breach of contract. The court, presided over by Justice Christopher Cooper, said the request was denied not only on ground that it was belated, but also that it sought the dismissal of the petition for the enforcement of the award. A government legal team, led by Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, left Nigeria on Wednesday morning to Washington DC to attempt to get the court to set aside the ...

News: Rescuers face race against time to free trapped boys as one former Thai Navy diver dies inside cave
Pressure is mounting on Thai authorities to bring forward a rescue plan for 12 boys and their coach trapped deep inside a flooded cave in northern Thailand, after the death of a former navy diver and a drop in oxygen levels underground. Officials initially thought they could keep the boys and their coach in the cave where they are trapped for up to four months, until waters dropped sufficiently for them to be able to walk out. But the death of a rescue team member, and the realization that oxygen levels have fallen to potentially dangerous levels, appears to have forced a reassessment of the... (Click Here To Read More)

UK calls on Russia to come forward over Novichok poisoning cases
UK Home Secretary Sajid Javid called Thursday for Russia to provide explanations after it was confirmed that two people were exposed to the same Soviet-era nerve agent that nearly killed a former Russian double agent and his daughter earlier this year. The UK government blames Russia for the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in March, a claim Moscow denies. Now a couple identified in British media as Charlie Rowley, 45, and Dawn Sturgess, 44, are in critical condition in Salisbury District Hospital -- the same hospital where the Skripals were treated -- after falling ill Satu...

Abadi ordered "the immediate implementation of the fair punishment of terrorists condemned to death whose sentences have passed the decisive stage," his office said in a statement Thursday. Hundreds of prisoners have been sentenced to death by Iraqi courts since Mosul and the surrounding area were reclai... (Click Here To Read More)

Inside Anthony Bourdain's globe-trotting career
Anthony Bourdain went from dishwasher to globe-trotting storyteller. He shared noodles and beer with President Barack Obama in Vietnam, won accolades exploring the world and its tastes, and built a business out of his legendary palette. His body of work was as expansive as his appetite. His book "Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly," published in 2000, was translated into more than two dozen languages. He produced a travel journal, three crime novels, a cookbook, a biography of Typhoid Mary, and a graphic novel. His shows took him to more than 100 cou... (Click Here To Read More)

Amazon could radically change how you get prescriptions
In the last 24 hours, Amazon announced a program that all but franchises its last-mile deliveries and bought the popular online pharmacy PillPack. At first glance, these may seem like utterly unrelated deals -- another case of Jeff Bezos digging into his very deep pockets to reach even further into your life. Step back, though, and you can see these two developments coming together to make dealing with a pharmacy as easy as thumbing your phone: Place your order and an Amazon-branded truck delivers your amoxicillin, along with tissues, all-natural cough drops and organic chicken noodle so...

White House decides against outright limits on Chinese investment
The Trump administration has decided against imposing outright limits on Chinese investment in the United States. Instead, it will rely on Congress to strengthen an existing government body that evaluates individual corporate deals for national security risks, senior administration officials told reporters early Wednesday. The Commerce Department is still looking into enhanced export controls, which would stop US firms from shipping certain technology to China. The decision is a more moderate approach as President Donald Trump tries to balance his desire to crack down on "unfair" ... (Click Here To Read More)

Uber wins right to keep operating in London
Uber has a green light in London. The Westminster Magistrates' Court ruled in the tech company's favor on Tuesday, granting it a 15 month license to operate in the British capital. Uber had been forced to appeal after Transport for London declined to renew its license in September. The transport authority had said Uber was not "fit and proper," citing several concerns including how it responded to serious crimes. The decision announced Tuesday is a major victory for Dara Khosrowshahi, who has sought in his 10 months as CEO to present Uber as a humbled and reformed company.... (Click Here To Read More)

Lions eat 'rhino poachers' on South African game reserve
At least two suspected rhino poachers have been mauled to death and eaten by lions on a South African game reserve, officials say. Rangers discovered the remains of two, possibly three, people in a lion enclosure in the Sibuya reserve, near the south-east town of Kenton-on-Sea. A high-powered rifle and an axe were also found. There has been a rise in poaching in Africa in recent years, to feed growing demand for rhino horn in parts of Asia. In China, Vietnam and elsewhere, rhino horn is erroneously believed to have aphrodisiac qualities. Sibuya reserve owner Nick Fox said in a statement o... (Click Here To Read More)

Malawi's President Mutharika and the police food scandal
There have been mounting calls for the resignation of Malawi's President Peter Mutharika after a leaked report by the country's anti-graft agency accused him of receiving a kickback from a 2.8bn kwacha ($3.9m; £2.8m) contract to supply food to the police. The report claims a businessman deposited 145m kwacha into an account belonging to the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), of which the president is the sole signatory. The president's spokesperson said the claims were "unfounded" and that Mr Mutharika had done nothing wrong. Civil rights organisations have non... (Click Here To Read More)

DNA tests ordered to reunite separated migrant families
US officials have ordered DNA tests on some 3,000 migrant children in an effort to reunite families who have been separated at the US-Mexico border. US Health Secretary Alex Azar said the tests were needed to meet a court deadline to reunite families, as the agency's usual methods were too slow. Mr Azar, whose agency oversees migrant detention centres, said about 100 of the children were aged under five. Activists fear the DNA data can be used by the government for other purposes. Critics also say that the children are too young to consent to a DNA test. The agency is bound by a court... (Click Here To Read More)
