End of Australia auto-making sector as Holden closes doorsThe last car rolled off the production line of Australian automaker Holden on Friday, marking the demise of a national industry unable to stand up to global competition. The closure of the Elizabeth plant in South Australia is the end of an era for Holden, which first started in the state as a saddlery business in 1856 and made the nation's first mass-produced car in 1948. The brand has long been an Australian household name, with 1970s commercials singing that "football, meat pies, kangaroos and Holden cars" were part of the nation's identity.

Man's fingertip torn off as wild boar rampage puts German town under siege
06:52 AM, 10.20.2017

Man's fingertip torn off as wild boar rampage puts German town under siegeTwo aggressive wild boars attacked and injured several people in the small German town of Heide on Friday morning, tearing through the town centre in a rampage which lasted for hours. Four people were injured, and one man’s fingertip was torn off, according to police reports. Others suffered leg injuries, as they were hit by the fully-grown animals in the northernmost state of Schleswig-Holstein.  The boars tore through the streets and ran through the market square, before making their way into a local bank branch, according to police, who issued a warning at around 9am urging people to avoid the town centre and to stay in their houses or in shops. One eyewitness saw a woman lying on the ground, screaming, after her trousers had been torn, according to German radio station NDR 1 Welle Nord. Another said they were "completely bewildered" and that the boars had come "out of nowhere".  After a large-scale operation, during which police and hunters chased the boar with stun rifles, one was killed by huntsman Uwe Ingwersen at 11am - two hours after the animals were first spotted - with a targeted head shot. The second ran away from the centre and police say it is now outside the city area.  Terror in Ditmarschen���� pic.twitter.com/mheLOKa5RK— Daggi (@danishkeks) October 20, 2017 Customers in the bank, which was invaded by the boars, were evacuated through open windows using ladders, according to police reports. Several cars were also damaged. Wild boar still roam the forests of Germany and are seen as a menace by much of German society. Marcus Börner, press officer at the Country Hunting Association, told the Schleswig-Holstein newspaper that it is highly stressful for boars, which have spread extensively in the state in recent decades, to be caught between walls and among so many people, causing them to become aggressive.  Earlier this year, a herd of wild boars attacked several people, injuring three, near Berlin's Tegel airport. Local media reported that it took authorities 18 shots to down one 200-kilogram boar, while the rest of the herd escaped.

Dozens killed as Taliban launch fresh assaults on Afghan bases
08:18 AM, 10.19.2017

Dozens killed as Taliban launch fresh assaults on Afghan basesMilitants launched two separate attacks on Afghan security installations killing dozens of soldiers Thursday, the latest in a series of devastating assaults this week that have left more than 120 people dead and underscored spiralling insecurity. At least 43 Afghan soldiers were killed and nine wounded in a Taliban-claimed assault on a military base in southern Afghanistan which saw the insurgents blast their way into the compound with at least one explosives-laden Humvee -- a tactic used in three separate attacks this week -- the defence ministry said. Just two soldiers were known to have survived unscathed, with six unaccounted for, the ministry said, underscoring the shocking casualties that Afghan security forces have faced in their struggle to beat back the insurgents.

Chinese Communist Party members 'plotted to oust President Xi Jinping'
10:08 AM, 10.20.2017

Chinese Communist Party members 'plotted to oust President Xi Jinping'A senior official in China’s Communist Party has claimed that high-ranking members had plotted to topple President Xi Jinping. China Securities Regulatory Commission chairman Liu Shiyu said a group of former political heavyweights who had been snared in Mr Xi’s corruption crackdown had sought to “seize state power”. Since he assumed power in 2012 Mr Xi has launched a war on corruption which has proved popular among ordinary Chinese. But critics say it lacks transparency and is a tool to sideline opponents. The Chinese president has previously denied that there was a “power struggle”, but Mr Liu's comments are in contrast to the party’s carefully-crafted image of unity. Profile | Xi Jinping Among the officials named by Mr Liu was former Politburo Standing Committee member and security chief Zhou Yongkang. He also named Bo Xilai, the party chief of the south-western city of Chongqing who was brought down in 2013 in a high-profile scandal. Others included Sun Zhengcai, who was only recently expelled from the party amid corruption allegations, two military offiers and a former presidential aide. “They had high positions and great power in the party, but they were hugely corrupt and plotted to usurp the party’s leadership and seize state power,” Mr Liu said. China's anti-corruption drive It is not the first time that a senior official has alleged friction in the Chinese leadership, however Mr Liu's comments appear to be the first to name officials. It is unclear if he was suggesting that the men acted together or separately. Wang Qishan, a senior official who spearheads Mr Xi’s anti-corruption drive, had told state media last year of officials "seizing party and state power". https://chase.telegraph.co.uk/etc/telegraph-author/index.html#edit/f76733a1-b5a0-11e7-a01a-06401c187d50 http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/10/20/19th-national-congress-communist-party-china- 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, in pictures Mr Liu made his comments on the sidelines of the Communist Party’s congress, the 19th to be held since it first met in 1921. Mr Xi is expected to strengthen his already considerable power at the political gathering.

In Turkish move into Syria, a sign of how Russia is shaping the countryFor most of the Syrian civil war, there have been two constants of Turkish policy: support for opposition forces seeking the removal of President Bashar al-Assad, and concern about the growing strength of the Kurds in northern Syria, whom Ankara regards as a direct threat. The move put Turkish forces in close proximity of the Kurdish enclave of Afrin, home to a Syrian Kurdish faction, the Democratic Union Party, whose military wing the US has armed.

Three million Americans carry a handgun daily: study
02:08 PM, 10.19.2017

Three million Americans carry a handgun daily: studyAs many as three million people in the United States carry a loaded handgun daily, while nine million do so at least once a month, according to a US study Thursday. Most of these gun-toting Americans are young men, live in the south and say personal protection is a top reason for walking around with a deadly weapon, said the report in the American Journal of Public Health. "It was important to study handgun carrying because about 90 percent of all firearm homicides and nonfatal firearm crimes for which the type of firearm is known are committed with a handgun," said lead author Ali Rowhani-Rahbar, an associate professor of epidemiology at the University of Washington School of Public Health.
