    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump reportedly suggested that a football quarterback of dual heritage - who sat out the US national anthem as part of a Black Lives Matter protest - should "find another country" on Monday (29 August). San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand during the traditional singing of the national anthem last week during a preseason game against Wisconsin's Green Bay Packers.

  • Gene Wilder, star of 'Willy Wonka,' 'Blazing Saddles,' dead at 83

    By Piya Sinha-Roy LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Gene Wilder, whose wild curls and startling blue eyes brought a frantic air to roles in the movies "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory," "Young Frankenstein" and "Blazing Saddles," died on Monday at the age of 83, his family said. Wilder, whose best work included collaborations with director-writer Mel Brooks and actor-comedian Richard Pryor, died at his home in Stamford, Connecticut, from complications of Alzheimer's disease, the family said in a statement. Wilder's nephew, Jordan Walker-Pearlman, said the actor had chosen to keep his illness secret so that children who knew him as Willy Wonka would not equate the whimsical character with an adult disease.

  • Denmark, Sweden toughen up asylum rules despite falling numbers

    COPENHAGEN/STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Denmark and Sweden will toughen up asylum rules further as the two countries look to prevent a repeat of last year's record numbers and calm public fears about the financial burden on traditionally generous welfare states. Around 250,000 people sought asylum in the Nordic region last year, most of them in Sweden, straining tolerance and pressuring government budgets. Tougher rules, along with efforts by the European Union to make its external borders less porous, have slashed asylum applications this year.

  • Samarco dam failed due to poor drainage and design - investigation

    By Marta Nogueira and Stephen Eisenhammer BELO HORIZONTE/RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - The deadly collapse of a tailings dam last November at the Samarco mine, owned by Vale SA and BHP Billiton, was caused by drainage and design flaws, a report into Brazil's worst-ever environmental disaster showed on Monday. Norbert Morgenstern, a geotechnical engineering professor who headed the investigation, repeatedly told reporters he could not answer their questions when quizzed on whether there was negligence or malpractice on the part of the companies involved. A separate police investigation has accused Samarco of wilful misconduct, saying the company ignored clear signs the dam was at risk of collapsing.

  • Djokovic advances but new concerns rise over fitness

    By Steve Keating NEW YORK (Reuters) - Novak Djokovic opened the defence of his U.S. Open title with a 6-3 5-7 6-2 6-1 win over Poland's Jerzy Janowicz on Monday, but the laboured performance gave rise to fresh concerns about the world number one's fitness. After a sizzling start to the season that brought grand slam wins No.11 and 12 at the Australian and French Opens, Djokovic's form has plummeted, with a third-round loss to Sam Querrey at Wimbledon followed by a first-round exit at the Rio Olympics. The Serb might have been in trouble on another day at Flushing Meadows but Janowicz, ranked 246 places below Djokovic, has advanced from the first round just once in four previous U.S. Open visits and looked unlikely to do it again on Monday.

  • Female author urges UK Muslims to speak out against extremism

    By Elisabeth O'Leary EDINBURGH (Reuters) - Islamic State (IS) violence can only be tackled if Muslims stand up for their views of what real Islam is, according to a rare female voice within the British Muslim community. Human rights campaigner Sara Khan argues in a new book that combatting IS needs the development of religious counter-arguments to violent extremism, and she calls for an "amplification" of faith teaching which deconstructs Islamist ideology to help stop Islamists recruiting young Britons. "Confronting any type of extremism lies in championing genuine human rights and embracing democracy, none of which are antithetical to Islam’s teachings," Khan argues in "The Battle for British Islam", presented at the Edinburgh book festival.
