Wanted man turns himself in after losing Facebook bet with police  A wanted Michigan man has turned himself in after losing a bet he made with police on Facebook. Michael Zaydel had promised to give himself up to police if a Facebook post about an existing arrest warrant received more than 1,000 shares. The cocky 21-year-old even promised to bring Redford Township Police Department (RTPD) officers a dozen doughnuts if they were victorious in the challenge. “I’m not worried about it,” he wrote. “If your next post gets 1,000 shares I’ll turn myself in with a dozen doughnuts and that’s a promise. “And I’ll pick up every piece of litter around your public schools.” In a follow-up post, the department said he “may or may not be a man of his word,” adding, “it is our experience everyone gets caught at some point. He has drawn a lot of attention to himself, and that makes it hard to hide from reality.” The fugitive eventually surrendered to police, fulfilling his promise by arriving at the station with doughnuts and a bagel. “Zaydel made good on his promise to turn himself in to RTPD for his outstanding warrants,” the department said. “He walked in on his own, and not only did he bring the doughnuts, he brought one bagel! We would again like to express our gratitude for the support of all who followed this, shared it, and left us positive feedback.” Mr Zaydel was sentenced to 39 days in jail after pleading guilty to breaking the terms of his probation. Is this the world's most meta mugshot?

"Anything that's good for Airbus is bad for Boeing of course," said Jim Corridore, an analyst at CFRA Research, summarizing the reaction of many observers to the Airbus-Bombardier venture.

"There are still some concerns that if the west winds come up or we get some erratic winds they could push our lines, but as of right now we're looking pretty good," Steve Crawford, a fire operations chief, told reporters at a briefing in Sonoma County in the heart of California's celebrated wine country. Already 41 people have been confirmed killed in the fires, which erupted last week and were driven by dry, hot winds into Northern California communities, giving residents little or no chance to escape.

Remains found in crocodile believed to be missing Queensland pensionerHuman remains have been found inside a crocodile that is believed to have killed a pensioner in Queensland last week.  The 4.3-metre estuarine crocodile was captured on Monday night at the Mowbray River near Craiglie in northeast Australia, close to where Anne Cameron went missing from an aged care facility near Port Douglas seven days ago. The 79-year-old is thought to have become disorientated on a walk and wandered into dense bushland. Police later found clothing, a walking stick with her name and human remains beside a crocodile-infested creek near Four Mile Beach, about a mile from the aged care facility. Wildlife officers set traps  to try to catch the creature that is believed to have killed Ms Cameron. The captured animal was examined in Cairns on Tuesday, with human remains found inside. A Saltwater Crocodile is pictured at the Australian Reptile Park in Sydney  Credit:  Ian Waldie/Getty Images "Investigations continue with officers preparing a report for the coroner," police said. Isabella Eggins, a granddaughter of Ms Cameron, said  last week the family feared she had died in tragic circumstances. “It is my deep regret to inform you that following an extensive search and the discovery of certain items as a result of that search, we have the firm belief that my mother Anne Cameron has passed away in tragic circumstances,” Ms Eggins said on Facebook. Saltwater crocodiles, which can grow up to seven metres long and weigh more than a tonne, are a common feature of the vast continent's tropical north and kill an average of two people a year. A series of crocodile attacks in the region in recent years has prompted calls for the state government to order a cull – a move that has so far been rejected. Ms Cameron's family also said they did not want to see any crocs culled. "The crocodiles... are not responsible for being crocodiles, and doing what crocodiles do," her son Craig Eggins said, according to the Cairns Post.

FaviconIraqi federal forces seize oil-rich Kirkuk in shock blow for Kurds 16 Oct 2017, 1:00 pm

Iraqi federal forces seize oil-rich Kirkuk in shock blow for KurdsIraqi federal forces seized the contested city of Kirkuk from Kurdish forces almost unopposed on Monday in a stunning reversal of fortunes for Iraq’s Kurds. The loss of the city and its nearby oil fields is a massive blow to dreams of independence for the Kurds, who last month held an independence referendum in anticipation of entering secession talks with Baghdad. “We took Kirkuk easily,” a lieutenant in the Iraqi federal police Emergency Response Division told the Telegraph via telephone on Monday. “We are all brothers, there were not problems, some of the Kurdish Peshmerga even took pictures with me,” said the 27-year-old, who gave his first name as Moqtader. The Kurdistan Regional Government’s Security Council reported that “Iraqi forces and Iranian-backed Popular Mobilisation Forces” attacked in “a major, multi-pronged operation” that deployed “US military equipment, including Abrams tanks and Humvees.” The statement also said “Peshmerga Forces have destroyed at least five US Humvees used by PMF.” Most Peshmerga forces withdrew from the contested city without fighting however after Baghdad issued the Kurds an ultimatum to pull back to pre-2014 positions. Long columns of armoured vehicles and pick up trucks filled with Kurdish fighters withdrew from positions around the city on Monday, jamming roads already crowded with fleeing Kurdish civilians who said they felt abandoned and feared Shia militias entering the city. Military vehicles enter Kirkuk Credit: Stringer/Reuters “They cheated us and we’ve been betrayed,” a Kurdish man Kawa Mustafa Mohamed shouted from his car as he and his family waited in heavy traffic to leave the city. “I don’t know where I’m going now but my father was killed by the Iraqis and I don’t want that to happen to my family.” Another man, Malla Bahir, had packed five of family members and piles of hastily gathered possessions crammed in his pick up truck. “I want to keep my daughters and wife safe,” he said. Left behind were disorganised bands of enraged Kurdish gunmen who vowed to defend the city. “Only us volunteers fought, not the Peshmerga,” said Hardi Farouk, a 27-year old in bleached blue jeans clutching an AK-47 assault rifle in south Kirkuk. Moments earlier a pickup truck carrying two grievously injured Kurdish fighters had careened through the intersection where Forouk stood and then the lightly armed band of Kurdish men nearby started firing their weapons in the direction of the distant K1 military base which had just been seized by Iraqi forces. Shortly afterwards mortars began exploding nearby and soon after the men had scattered a convoy of Iraqi federal forces would enter the city unopposed. The prospect of a new civil war in the ethnically mixed city is a potential boon for Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil).  The international coalition said it was “closely monitoring the situation” and urged all sides to avoid “escalatory actions”. Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, a former British Army officer now advising the Kurdish Peshmerga, said: “The greatest evil everywhere is Isil and the greatest threat to the UK is Isil. It’s the defeat of Islamic State that is key and the trouble is people in Iraq believe that the fight against Isil is over and it’s focused in Raqqa and Syria. But there are still pockets in Iraq and anything that deflects from that could have a global impact.” The Foreign Office in London last night urged "calm on all sides" and said it wanted to "encourage steps to de-escalate tensions in Kirkuk". Iraqi boys walk over the Kurdish flag in Kirkuk Credit: Stringer/Reuters Kurdish forces have controlled Kirkuk since summer 2014 when federal forces abandoned their defences ahead of an Islamic State advance across northern Iraq. Since then the Kurds have exported oil from Kirkuk fields — some 350,000 barrels of oil per day— a critical contribution to their economy since Baghdad stopped budget payments to the region following a dispute over oil revenues in 2015. In recent weeks Baghdad stepped up demands for the return of Kirkuk and its oil fields after the Kurds proceeded with holding a disputed referendum on independence that extended voting to disputed territories. Prime Minister Haider Al Abadi took pains to portray the military operation as being in the interests of Iraqi citizens. In a statement released Monday, he said: “We assure our people in Kurdistan and in Kirkuk in particular that we are keen on their safety and best interest. We have only acted to fulfill our constitutional duty to extend the federal authority and impose security and protect the national wealth in this city, which we want to remain a city of peaceful coexistence for all Iraqis.” Both federal and Kurdish leaders have attempted to paint the other as aggressors in the dispute. “Peshmerga will continue to defend Kurdistan, its peoples and interests,” wrote the Kurdistan Regional Government’s Security Council. Not all Kirkuk residents were dismayed by the change in control in the city. Photos shared on social media showed Turkmen residents celebrating in the streets near the citadel at the heart of the city and Iraqi Arabs bringing tea and sweets to advancing federal forces. A banner showing an image of the Kurdish regional president Massoud Barzani, as Iraqi forces advance towards Kirkuk Credit: Ahmad Al-Rubaye/AFP In other areas though, Kurdish men said they would fight to the death despite their leaders’ decision to withdraw from the city. “I’m going to stay to the end,” said Baran Abdullah, a 25-year-old Peshmerga fighter who said he’d come to the city without orders with his father and two brothers after seeing the news on television. As he stood on an overpass, vehicles continued streaming out of the city passed an enormous statue of a Kurdish fighter. The 26-metre high edifice was recently inaugurated by former Kirkuk governor Najmaddin Karim in honour of the Kurdish fighters who had defended the city against Isis in 2014. “Our leaders sold us out, they sold Kirkuk and they sold the martyrs,” said Abdullah. Standing alongside him were two female fighters from the the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK). On Sunday evening the National Security Council in Baghdad had characterised the presence of the outlawed militant group in the city as a “declaration of war” by the Kurds, despite the fact that they had been in the city since 2014. The women declined to be interviewed but said the PKK would also stay to defend the city. Just hours later though, photos shared online showed Iraqi forces stationed next to the statue amid reports that federal control over the city was complete.

Hillary Clinton breaks toe falling down stairs, misses BBC interviewHillary Clinton was delayed arriving for the filming of the BBC's Graham Norton Show due to a broken toe. The former US presidential candidate arrived for the recording of Norton's BBC One show wearing a surgical boot. Mrs Clinton said: "I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards. "I tried to get up and it really hurt. I've broken my toe. I've received excellent care from your excellent health service." Mrs Clinton is said to be "very apologetic" after missing her slot on BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour due to delays. The former presidential candidate was due to speak about why she lost the 2016 US presidential election to Republican Donald Trump.

Credit: Ian West/PA Presenter Jane Garvey apologised to listeners close to the programme's end, saying: "Hillary Clinton has been delayed this morning, as I've already said ... she's not going to make it before the end of the programme. I'm really, really sorry about that. I think you probably understand just how sorry I am. "But we are working very, very hard to get this interview rescheduled and Hillary Clinton is very apologetic. "So what can I say, that's the situation." It follows a string of late arrivals by the former US secretary of state over the weekend. Mrs Clinton was about 45 minutes late for a speech at the Cheltenham Literature Festival on Sunday to promote her new book, What Happened. She was also delayed a similar amount of time on Saturday, when she was presented with an honorary doctorate at Swansea University. Meanwhile, her husband Bill was forced to postpone a planned intervention in Northern Ireland's political stalemate because of storm Ophelia. The Press Association understands the former US president had been due in the region on Monday to meet warring political parties as they continue to struggle to reach a deal to restore the collapsed Executive. But the visit was called off at late notice due to the severe weather warnings. It is understood the visit may still take place on Tuesday.

Bowe Bergdahl pleads guilty to desertion after being captured by TalibanUS Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl - who was held hostage by the Taliban for five years after going missing from his post in Afghanistan - has pleaded guilty to desertion. The 31-year-old, who disappeared from a remote combat outpost in the summer of 2009 and was called “a traitor” by Donald Trump, also pleaded guilty to a charge of misbehaviour before the enemy. Bergdahl, from Idaho, was held for five years by the Haqqani network, the same militant faction linked to the Taliban, that held American Caitlan Coleman and her family hostage for five years until being freed last Wednesday.
