Multiple US troops injured in collision with a Russian military convoy in Syria The official said that the injuries occurred when one of the Russian vehicles apparently deliberately collided with the American vehicle causing the crew to suffer "concussion-like injuries." Initial reports indicate as many as four Americans may have been injured. The officials said a Russian military helicopter flew low and fast over the area in a tactic that is often used by military forces to try to disperse personnel on the ground. Despite US military leadership at the highest levels being aware of the incident within a short time of it occurring, the Pentagon has still not publicly acknowledged that Americans were hurt, the officials said. Tom Hanks writes to boy called Corona who said he was bullied Image copyright Getty Images US actor Tom Hanks has written a letter and sent a Corona-brand typewriter gift to an Australian boy who said he was bullied because of his name - Corona.

"I heard on the news you and your wife had caught the coronavirus," the boy wrote. "Are you OK?" He added that he loved his name but was being called "coronavirus" at school.
Obama warns that Trump's actions threaten US democracy But the extraordinary interventions Thursday of two presidents, whose legacies will be forever entwined, suddenly underscored how this election, in the words of the quadrennial cliché, will actually be the most important one of our lifetimes. Obama's eulogy was not just his most public intervention in the 2020 campaign or his most passionate denunciation yet of a successor whose highest priority is eradicating Obama's achievements at home and abroad. The speech, from the church where Martin Luther King Jr. once preached, also represented Obama's most raw, explicit and unrestrained unburdening about race on a prominent public stage of his entire political career. In his 2008 campaign, he powerfully spoke about racial prejudice while seeking to heal national wounds -- and save his campaign when pressed about his association with the controversial Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Meanwhile, Trump did not travel to honor Lewis, a man who he once decried as "talk, talk, talk, -- no action."

Biden challenges Trump with ‘Buy American’ economic plan Image copyright Getty Images Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden has laid out his rescue plan for the coronavirus-crippled US economy, while berating President Donald Trump as incompetent. Mr Biden said his $700bn (£560bn) plan would be the biggest investment in the US economy since World War Two. The "Build Back Better" agenda, he said, would spur a manufacturing and technology jobs boom. The Trump campaign responded that the plan would inflict "catastrophe".
Opinion: The President believes he is losing this race For the last night of the convention, President Donald Trump did something unusual -- he largely stayed on script and on message. For a candidate who has always trusted his own political instincts, this was notable. The President's decision to shy away from his raucous campaign rally speaking style is the most compelling evidence that he believes he is losing this race. It has been hard to pinpoint what percentage of voters support the President's policy positions but are wavering in their support because they dislike his exaggerated rhetoric and constant Twitter attacks. These voters do not like the direction of the Democratic Party, fearing it is being pulled too far left, but they are embarrassed by Trump.
Nature crisis: 'Insect apocalypse' more complicated than thought Image copyright Getty Images The global health of insect populations is far more complicated than previously thought, new data suggests. Previous research indicated an alarming decline in numbers in all parts of world, with losses of up to 25% per decade. Hong Kong is setting up an election without a real opposition A special administrative region (SAR) of China, Hong Kong has a partially-autonomous political and legal system, including a limited form of democracy evolved from its days under British colonial rule. Those limits and the inability of the government to continue a transition to full democracy have long been criticized by the city's opposition, and sparked mass protest movements. And certainly, there is a lot to take issue with. On Thursday, the limits of democracy within this system seemed to contract further, as the government barred a dozen candidates from standing in September's legislative elections, and warned that more disqualifications were coming.
