- X-ray images show tools Khashoggi killers brought to Istanbul, Turkish paper claims
The 15-strong Saudi kill team responsible for the murder of columnist Jamal Khashoggi carried luggage containing scissors, syringes and a stun gun, a pro-government Turkish paper has claimed. Sabah, a daily newspaper headquartered in Istanbul, published images on Tuesday purported to be airport X-ray scans of the team's bags as they left Istanbul for Riyadh on October 2, the day of Mr Khashoggi’s murder. A number of tools and pieces of equipment can be seen, including walkie-talkies, a signal jammer and a pair of scissors. The bags were loaded onto two private jets but police were not able to open them due to diplomatic immunity, according to the report. The paper, which is close to Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), is one of a number of outlets that has published a steady stream of leaks providing lurid details of Khashoggi’s death, a tactic seemingly designed to keep pressure on Riyadh and its allies. How the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi unfolded Mr Khashoggi, a regular contributor to the Washington Post, was killed in the kingdom’s Istanbul consulate while attempting to secure paperwork that would allow him to remarry. According to Istanbul’s chief prosecutor, he was strangled and his body dismembered soon after entering the building. Saudi officials initially denied all involvement but in the face of mounting international outrage admitted that the columnist had been killed as part of a “rogue” operation. The X-ray images were published as the New York Times reported that in an audio recording of the killing, one of the team responsible can be heard instructing a superior to "tell your boss" after the murder takes place, a suspected reference to Mohammed bin Salman, the Saudi crown prince. Khashoggi was once close to the royal family but went into self-imposed exile last year and had since been critical of the Crown Prince in his writing. Mr Erdogan described the tape as a “calamity” this week and said it shocked even a Saudi intelligence officer who listened to it, according to local media. The Turkish president added that orders for the killing came from the highest levels of the kingdom.

- Watch California's powerful, relentless winds stoke the state's fires
It's the time of year when winds really kick up in California, and firefighters on Tuesday night captured footage of relentless gusts driving a new blaze over the parched terrain. Firefighters in San Bernardino County — an arid region east of Los Angeles — spent the night combatting the newly-born Sierra Fire amid potent seasonal winds, known as Santa Anas. Though this particular fire (147 acres and well-contained), is quite small compared to the expansive Camp and Woolsey fires, it shows how persistent 50 mph gusts can whip fire over the land — land that has been parched by a confluence of dry winds and a long, scorching summer. #SierraFire: Footage from earlier this evening. In #SantaAnaWinds, Dozers can often engage where it’s too dangerous for handcrews. A decisive force multiplier in tonight’s firefight. ^eas pic.twitter.com/gtqmJB5pk6 — SB County Fire (@SBCOUNTYFIRE) November 14, 2018 In the video, a bulldozer, which had been clearing vegetation to limit the spread of fire into an adjacent community, can be seen working while the winds blow smoke through the air and stoke brush fires in the background. Santa Ana winds are notorious for stoking fall fires in California. These dry winds, traveling east from the great U.S. deserts, pick up in the fall and eventually peak in December, Sasha Gershunov, a research meteorologist at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, said in an interview. But typically by mid-November — and certainly December — some rains will wet the dry California vegetation. The winds will always blow, but these days they're increasingly gusting over dried-out terrain. This makes for perfect fire conditions. SEE ALSO: When will this terrible wildfire season in California end? "Now we’re in our traditional fire season, but the fuels are untraditionally dry this late into the season," said Gershunov. "This seems to be getting more common as the climate changes," he added. Some of the most destructive, deadliest wildfires occur in Southern California, a place not defined by pine forests, but shrubs and grasslands. Here, a confluence of Santa Ana winds, development in fire-prone areas, and climate change have boosted the state's growing wildfire woes. Overall, the amount of land burned in the United States has more than doubled over the last 30 years, and predictably, these fires have been enhanced by a warming globe.

- U.S. imposes sanctions for Khashoggi killing, Saudis seek death penalty
The U.S. Treasury Department sanctions were the first concrete response by the Trump administration to Khashoggi's death in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October. Among those sanctioned were Saud al-Qahtani, who has been removed from his position as a top aide to the powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, as well as the Saudi Consul General Mohammad al-Otaibi and members of a 15-person team Turkey has identified as being involved in Khashoggi's death. The measure was unusual for Washington, which rarely imposes sanctions on Saudi nationals.

- California wildfires: Fears radioactive waste could be caught in destructive blaze
An organisation of physicians fear radioactive waste could become a major issue after southern California’s huge wildfire burned near a former nuclear test site. The organisation of Physicians for Social Responsibility said it was likely that smoke and ash from the fire spread radiological and chemical contamination that was in soil and vegetation near the Santa Susana Field Laboratory. Regulators in California said initial testing found no elevated levels of radiation of hazardous compounds after the blaze near the site.

- Michelle Obama on Trump: 'You don’t get results when you go low'
When they go low, Michelle Obama still goes high. Though she's no longer America's first lady, Obama continues to use her voice to inspire people, and as she kicked off her Becoming book tour this week she reminded everyone how important it is to take the high road. In an interview with CBS This Morning's Gayle King, Obama explained why "going low" and behaving like Donald Trump has in the White House won't work in the end. "Going low means you're operating from your place of emotion. It doesn't necessarily mean you're operating from a place of results," she explained. "More often than not, you don't get results when you go low. You just get your attitude out." "Going low means you’re operating from your place of emotion. You know? It doesn’t necessarily mean you’re operating from a place of results... And oftentimes, more often than not, you don’t get results when you go low." — Former FLOTUS @MichelleObama https://t.co/g0mCCQgidP pic.twitter.com/O7y7XHsxyK — CBS This Morning (@CBSThisMorning) November 14, 2018 Obama then went on to address Trump more closely, calling out how presidents especially have a responsibility to carefully consider each word and action. SEE ALSO: Michelle Obama says she can 'never forgive' Donald Trump "When you're in the White House and you have that platform and that responsibility where every word matters, you're often thinking — or at least Barack and I often thought — 'Is what we’re about to say going to help?' Is it going to move the needle forward? Or is it just going to make us feel vindicated in the moment?'" "You learn that vindication in the moment is so short-term," she said. "Going 'high' doesn’t mean you don’t feel and have feelings and that you don’t express feelings, that you don't acknowledge hurt or pain or anger," she went on. "That’s not what going high is. Going high means you have that feeling and how do you put that feeling in the world and how do you do that responsibly?'" And though Obama has experienced her fair share of challenges throughout the course of her eight years in the White House and since leaving, she still holds her motto close to her heart and feels optimistic about the country's future. "I lived in the country. I traveled the country. I saw the heart of who we are… People have issues. But everybody's working for the same thing. The same goal. And I got to see that part of America." — @MichelleObama tells @GayleKing https://t.co/g0mCCQgidP pic.twitter.com/Z1CXtBsebf — CBS This Morning (@CBSThisMorning) November 14, 2018 "I lived in the country. I traveled the country. I saw the heart of who we are. Forget race or party or ethnicity or gender," she said. "[Whether] people agree with us or not, people were kind, people are worried, people have issues. But everybody's working for the same thing. The same goal. And I got to see that part of America."

- As relationship sours, Macron tells Trump France is not vassal of U.S.
In five posts sent on Tuesday after a visit to Paris to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One, Trump reminded France of its near-defeat by Germany in two wars, took a swipe at its wine industry, and mentioned Macron's falling approval ratings. Trump had earlier criticized Macron's suggestion that a European army was needed, in part, to reduce reliance on the U.S. military. Asked in an interview on the Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier whether he was offended by Trump's tweets, Macron talked at length about the long military alliance between the two countries, from America's War of Independence onwards.

- 'Trump the Grump': Moody US president challenged Theresa May over Brexit during phone call
Donald Trump challenged Theresa May over her Brexit plan and its impact on a possible UK-US free trade deal during a fractious recent call as he travelled on Air Force One. Well-placed UK sources told The Daily Telegraph that the US president was in a “bad mood” and acting like “Trump the Grump” during their conversation last Friday. Mrs May called to congratulate Mr Trump on the Republicans' better-than-expected results at the US midterm elections but received an irritated response from the president, who reportedly berated her on a string of topics. There is concern among some British figures who work closely on the US-UK relationship that Mr Trump is echoing the "Farage-Bannon line” on Mrs May’s Brexit proposals. That refers to fierce criticism from Nigel Farage, the former Ukip leader, and Steve Bannon, the former White House chief strategist, about the Prime Minister’s Chequers plan. One UK government source said: “Everyone knows he was throwing a complete wobbly for two solid days in France. Quite what caused it … we don’t know. “Had there been a call on that day with anybody it would have been tetchy. From what I understand, it was Trump the Grump that day, but we all have bad days.” The source added on Mr Trump's Brexi views: “There is a Farage-Bannon line which is in his head and we know that’s his mentality. But that’s fine, we live with that.” Mr Trump made clear during his visit to Britain in July that he thought Mrs May should have taken a tougher line on Brexit talks. It later emerged he proposed she hire lawyers to sue Brussels. He also said that Mrs May’s Chequers deal would “kill” the chance of a trade deal – criticism delivered in an interview with The Sun which he then walked back in a press conference. Four well-placed sources in Washington DC and London gave this newspaper an insight into the testy phone call between Mrs May and Mr Trump, first reported by The Washington Post. It was initiated by the Prime Minister, apparently to curry favour with the US president by congratulating him on the US midterm election results. The Republicans managed to increase their majority in the US Senate, thought they lost control of the House of Representatives. However during the call the pair made clear their differences on the Iran nuclear deal, which Mr Trump withdraw America from but Britain and the other signatories are fighting to keep alive. Mrs May briefed the president on the Brexit negotiations as well as discussing the chances of a US-UK free trade deal, with formal talks due to begin once the UK is formally outside of the EU. The Washington Post reported that Mr Trump 'lost his cool' with Mrs May, adding: "He berated the British prime minister on Iran, trade and Brexit, among other topics." One UK official played down how heated the call had been, making clear there were differences of opinion but that the clashes had not been as “extreme” as the Washington Post’s report suggested.

Top congressional Democrat Nancy Pelosi brushed off concern Thursday about simmering internal party opposition to her leadership, expressing confidence that she will be elected speaker of the House of Representatives. Pelosi has led House Democrats since 2003, including a historic four-year stint as the first-ever female speaker. With Democrats reclaiming the majority after last week's midterm elections, House Republicans will relinquish the gavel, and Pelosi recently said she had "100 percent" confidence in reclaiming it.
- Before and after photos show the devastation of the California wildfires
As wildfires continue to rage across California, a set of before and after photos brings into focus the utter devastation wrought by the blazes, particularly in the northern California town of Paradise Pines which has essentially been incinerated by the fires. As of Thursday morning, the Camp Fire has burned over 140,000 acres and is still raging at only 40 percent contained after sparking to life a week ago. The Before image of Camp FireImage: Satellite image © 2018 DigitalGlobe, a Maxar company Paradise Pines, CA, engulfed in flamesImage: Satellite image © 2018 DigitalGlobe, a Maxar company Investigators are still searching for a cause of the fire. Once the fire exploded, it was fueled by already unusually parched timber and grasses and driven quickly, burning 70,000 acres in is first 24 hours, by excessive winds. The fire is California's deadliest ever with 59 reported deaths as of Thursday morning and more than 100 people still reported missing. Meanwhile, in Southern California, the Woolsey Fire was 57 percent contained as of Thursday morning as it had burned just shy of 100,000 acres. The other notable recent blaze, the Hill Fire, was 97 percent contained, some rare good news in a horrible week for the state.
