The lawmaker explained that tweaking search results for the news category would cut off the global readership that remains interested in the Russian position on global events, calling it a &quot;powerful blow&quot; to the freedom of speech.&lt;/p&gt;

They risk infecting others as they flee back home – despite being riddled with the dangerous contagion.

This comes as fears grow that the outbreak could go global - leading to millions dying. The Central Anti-Plague Hospital Ambohimindra is one of six hospitals that treat plague in the city with a population of 8.6m.&lt;/p&gt;

A convoy included some of ISIS&#039;s most notorious members and -- despite reassurances -- dozens of foreign fighters. Some of those have spread out across Syria, even making it as far as Turkey...When lorry driver Abu Fawzi and his fellow drivers assembled their convoy early on 12 October, they realised they had been lied to. Instead, it would take three days of hard driving, carrying a deadly cargo - hundreds of ISIS fighters, their families and tonnes of weapons and ammunition. The deal to let ISIS fighters escape from Raqqa had been arranged by local officials. &lt;strong&gt;It enabled many hundreds of ISIS fighters to escape from the city&lt;/strong&gt;. &lt;span style=&quot;color:#f00;&quot;&gt;&lt;strong&gt;At the time, neither the US and British-led coalition, nor the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which it backs, wanted to admit their part&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/span&gt;. Great pains were taken to hide it from the world.&lt;/p&gt;

The allegation comes just days after the US acknowledged that it allowed hundreds of armed ISIS militants to escape the besieged Syrian city of Raqqa. &quot;That&#039;s the headline. But what did you do? &lt;span style=&quot;color:#f00;&quot;&gt;&lt;strong&gt;You paid a lot of dollars to [ISIS]&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/span&gt;,&quot; Erdogan said, as cited by AFP. Last December, the Turkish president caused quite a stir in the media, claiming that &lt;strong&gt;Turkey had &quot;confirmed evidence, with pictures, photos and videos,&quot; of the US supporting Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS, ISIL [but still I-CIA-SIS]) and Kurdish militias&lt;/strong&gt;, outlawed as terrorists in Turkey. Erdogan&#039;s comments come just days after the BBC &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/resources/idt-sh/raqqas_dirty_secret&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;revealed&lt;/a&gt; on Monday that the US-backed SDF allowed hundreds of ISIS militants to escape Raqqa with the silent approval of their coalition allies that preferred not to intervene.&lt;/p&gt;

The bill, called the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, would cut the corporate rate to 20%; set up four tax brackets; and switch the U.S. to a so-called territorial tax system. The Senate Finance Committee is working on a separate measure that differs in key respects, notably by repealing Obamacare&#039;s individual insurance mandate. The House bill passed 227 to 205.&lt;/p&gt;

A staggering 82 health workers have been struck down by the disease -- about around four per cent of the total number of cases -- according to latest figures from the World Health Organisation (WHO)...There are also fears the disease could develop a resistance to the antibiotics being used to treat victims, which would likely see the number of cases surge. At least 2,119 cases of the plague have been reported and the death toll is continuing to rise with the disease having now claimed 171 lives, according to latest WHO figures.&lt;/p&gt;

Earlier this week, infection and immunity expert Dr Matthew Avison told Daily Star Online that the &quot;&lt;a href=&quot;https://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/latest-news/660006/black-death-plague-madagascar-get-worse-antibiotics&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;extremely rare&lt;/a&gt;&quot; disease has been &quot;resilient&quot; to antibiotics. A spokesman for the World Health Organisation admitted there were fears that this strain of plague -- which is now believed to be airborne -- could &lt;a href=&quot;https://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/world-news/659699/Black-death-plague-death-Madagascar-rising-World-Health-Organisation-outbreak-US-Europe&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;cause a global outbreak&lt;/a&gt; of the disease.&lt;/p&gt;

A pro-ISIS propaganda channel made the threat in a poster depicting a car attack. The poster - reading &quot;Christmas blood&quot; - depicts a masked jihadi driving a BMW towards St Peter&#039;s Basilica, where Pope Francis holds mass. An assault rifle and a rucksack are visible on the seat next to the driver, who is using a sat nav and driving at high speed.&lt;/p&gt;

Menendez, 63, a longtime fixture in the state&#039;s political circles who first joined the Senate in 2006, was accused of accepting private flights, campaign contributions and other bribes from a wealthy patron, Florida ophthalmologist Salomon Melgen, in exchange for official favors. The hung jury was a victory for Menendez and a major setback for federal prosecutors in what was the Justice Department&#039;s first high-profile corruption trial since a U.S. Supreme Court decision last year limited its ability to bring such cases.&lt;/p&gt;

Mr. Franken, who has been mentioned as a possible presidential candidate, almost immediately released an apology to the newscaster, Leeann Tweeden, who said that Mr. Franken forcibly kissed her during a rehearsal and groped her for a photo as she slept. After initially apologizing without fully acknowledging her all of her accusations, he then released another lengthier, more contrite statement that contested nothing.&lt;/p&gt;

The spill comes on the eve of a crucial decision by the Public Service Commission in Nebraska over whether to grant a permit for a new, long-delayed sister pipeline called Keystone XL, which has been mired in controversy for several years. Both are owned by Calgary-based TransCanada. The spill on the first Keystone pipeline is the latest in a series of incidents that critics of the new pipeline say shows that TransCanada should not receive another permit.&lt;/p&gt;

Al Franken groped and &quot;forcibly kissed&quot; her without her consent during an overseas USO tour in 2006, two years before Franken was elected to the Senate. The revelations have prompted Franken to apologize and ignited calls for a Senate ethics investigation into Franken&#039;s behavior. Leeann Tweeden is now a morning news anchor on TalkRadio 790 KABC in Los Angeles and posted her story in a lengthy post on the station&#039;s website...Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer have each called on the Senate ethics committee to review Tweeden&#039;s account against Franken.&lt;/p&gt;

According to the official story...a gunman reportedly opened fire from his 32nd-floor hotel room window, killing 58.

ISIS uploaded its latest propaganda video on Nov. 10, titled &quot;Snipers of the South -- Wilāyat al-Janūb.&quot; The nearly six-minute video details ISIS sniper operations. In one scene, an ISIS fighter can be seen firing what appears to be a homemade high caliber anti-material gun. The video later focuses on an ISIS sniper and his spotter. The spotter is carrying a FLIR BHM thermal camera, and the shooter is operating a U.S. M4 with an unknown scope. [&lt;strong&gt;Hmm. How did they get them? Via one of John McCain&#039;s food and weapons drops for his I-CIA-SIS best buds?&lt;/strong&gt;]&lt;/p&gt;

Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) told MSNBC that the millions have been doled out to alleged victims of harassment from congressional members over the past decade. She did not disclose which members of Congress have been accused of sexual misconduct.&lt;/p&gt;

Although Enzer was the one to formally report Coons, the action was spurred by accusations from multiple students about Coons&#039;s repeated and intentional bigotry, according to Enzer...When information is reported to the Bias Response Line, an Office of Equal Opportunity employee listens to the report and determines any follow-up action, if necessary, the office said. If the office concludes that action should be taken, it relays the information to the specific school or department in which the original bias issue occurred.&quot;&lt;/p&gt;

In addition to Al Green, Reps. Steve Cohen, Luis Gutierrez, Marcia Fudge, John Yarmuth and Adriano Espaillat -- on the far left of the House Democratic Caucus -- have taken the step against the wishes of Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Whip Steny Hoyer.&lt;/p&gt;

The office of Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), a Memphis liberal, announced the move. Cohen had indicated in August that he would join the official push to remove Trump from office, citing the president&#039;s response to the deadly white supremacist marches in Charlottesville, Va., that same month.&lt;/p&gt;

Iran&#039;s state-run Irna news agency has raised the death toll to 407 and said 6,700 people were injured after the quake that struck the country&#039;s western provinces at 9.20pm local time on Sunday. Tremors were felt hundreds of miles away in both capitals, in Tehran and Baghdad. Local officials said the toll was likely to rise as search and rescue teams reached remote areas.&lt;/p&gt;
