    Merkel signals readiness for new election after coalition talks collapse

    Chancellor Angela Merkel said she would prefer a new election to ruling with a minority after talks on forming a three-way coalition failed overnight, but Germany's president told parties they owed it to voters to try to form a government. The failure of exploratory coalition talks involving her conservative bloc, the liberal pro-business Free Democrats (FDP) and environmentalist Greens raises the prospect of a new election and casts doubt about her future after 12 years in power. Merkel, 63, said she was sceptical about ruling in a minority government, telling ARD television: "My point of view is that new elections would be the better path." Her plans did not include being chancellor in a minority government, she said after meeting President Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

    Mystery sound 'did not come from missing sub'

    Argentina's navy has said that a mystery sound detected underwater did not come from a missing submarine with 44 crew members on board. The noise - heard by two navy ships - had come from about 225 miles (360km) off the coast, and their position was in line with the path that ARA San Juan would have taken to reach its destination. Navy spokesman Enrique Balbi has now confirmed the noise is unrelated to the vessel - and told reporters it had likely come from a "biological" source.

    Chaos in Zimbabwe after Mugabe fails to announce expected resignation

    Zimbabwe’s ongoing crisis descended into outright chaos on Sunday after president Robert Mugabe failed to announce his resignation as widely expected in a national address on live television. Instead, in a rambling 30 minute address, Mugabe offered no concessions to his critics, the tens of thousands who marched calling for his resignation or the army commanders who led the military takeover last week. Mugabe, who repeatedly cited the legacy of Zimbabwe’s brutal liberations wars of the 1970s, said he believed that the military “operation” launched last Tuesday by army commanders was motivated by “a deep patriotic concern for the stability of the nation” and “did not amount to a threat to our well-cherished constitutional order”.

    Search intensifies for 44 missing crew members of Argentine sub lost 268 miles off southern Atlantic coast

    A desperate search has intensified for 44 crew members of an Argentine navy submarine that went missing in the South Atlantic. Whipping winds and 20-foot waves have hampered the hunt for the German-built ARA San Juan, which was 268 miles off Argentina's southern Atlantic coast when it sent its last known communication on Wednesday. Search units have relied on information gathered from a British polar exploration vessel, the HMS Protector, which was equipped with an underwater search probe and was following the path taken by the submarine.

    British households felt more of a squeeze on their finances this month, a survey by data firm IHS Markit showed on Monday, and credit card firm Visa predicted spending over the Christmas holidays would fall in real terms for the first time since 2012.

    Twenty Chinese Uighurs use blankets to escape Thai cell

    Twenty ethnic Uighur Muslims from China broke out of a detention center near the Thai-Malaysia border, Thai officials said on Monday, after digging holes in the wall and using blankets as ladders. The 20 were part of the last remaining group of more than 200 Uighurs who were detained in 2014. Members of the group identified themselves as Turkish citizens and asked to be sent to Turkey but more than 100 were forcibly returned to China in July 2015, a move that sparked international condemnation, including from rights groups who feared they could face torture in China.
