ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Dallas quarterback Tony Romo was knocked out of the game against Carolina with an injury to the shoulder that sidelined him for seven games this season.
Japan on Friday published a string of mostly weak data, the first major figures since news that world's number three economy had slipped back into recession. A key inflation gauge showed prices fell in October from a year ago, while spending by households also dropped in a double blow for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's high-profile growth blitz, dubbed Abenomics. The weak figures came despite signs that Japan's labour market remained tight, with the headline unemployment rate at a two-decade low of 3.1 percent, down from 3.4 percent in September.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump denied on Thursday he was mocking the physical disability of a New York Times reporter during a campaign speech in which he flailed his arms and distorted his speech in an imitation of the journalist. The latest uproar over Trump's behavior on the campaign trail was ignited by remarks the billionaire real-estate tycoon and former reality-TV star made during a South Carolina rally on Tuesday about the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on New York's World Trade Center. During the speech, he singled out Times investigative reporter Serge Kovaleski for a story he wrote a few days after the attacks while he was then a Washington Post correspondent.
PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) — When Syracuse and Connecticut get together on the court, good basketball often follows.
Johannesburg (AFP) - The number of adolescents dying from AIDS has tripled over the last 15 years, most of them having acquired the disease when they were infants, according to figures released Friday by UNICEF.
NEW YORK (AP) — Americans paused Thursday to celebrate their blessings despite terrorism fears and racial tensions over fatal police shootings across the country. A record number of police officers patrolled the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York, while St. Louis resumed its annual parade, canceled last year amid protests over Michael Brown's death.
HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii state Sen. Russell Ruderman worries whenever there's a mosquito buzzing in his home.
Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump denied Thursday even knowing a disabled New York Times reporter whose jerking arm movements the bombastic billionaire seemed to make fun of in a campaign speech. The latest furor surrounding Trump -- who often vents about political correctness -- raises new questions about what critics say appears to be his inclination to mock people's physical traits, and make up stories to serve his purposes. Video shows him appearing to question the credentials of Pulitzer-prize winning reporter Serge Kovaleski, who suffers from congenital arthrogryposis, which interferes with movement of the limbs.
Liverpool and Tottenham reached the Europa League last 32 on Thursday while Scottish interest in continental competition came to another sobering end when Celtic were knocked out. Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool defeated Bordeaux 2-1 at Anfield having endured the worst possible start when injury-plagued England striker Daniel Sturridge's comeback from a knee injury stalled when he hurt his foot in training. The English side then fell a goal down in the Group B clash in bizarre fashion after 33 minutes when goalkeeper Simon Mignolet was penalised for holding onto the ball for 20 seconds rather than the permitted six.
WASHINGTON (AP) — A man draped in an American flag climbed over the fence at the White House on Thursday, prompting a lockdown as the first family celebrated Thanksgiving.
A man who jumped the White House fence on Thursday, triggering a lockdown of the presidential mansion, was quickly caught and now faces criminal charges, the U.S. Secret Service said. Joseph Caputo scaled the north fence line of the White House grounds at around 2:45 p.m. and was immediately apprehended, the Secret Service said in a statement. The White House was locked down as the Secret Service conducted a security sweep of the area, and nearby streets were closed off, ABC News and The Washington Post reported earlier.
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says Thanksgiving is a day for food, football and hoping "the turkey didn't turn out too dry."
A man draped in an American flag jumped over the fence of the White House while President Barack Obama was inside with his family celebrating Thanksgiving on Thursday, officials and US media said. In a statement, the Secret Service named the man as Joseph Caputo: "Caputo was immediately apprehended and taken into custody. Secret Service officers had their guns drawn and were accompanied by K-9 units, according to two CNN photojournalists who saw the incident, which triggered a lockdown at the presidential mansion.
By Denis Pinchuk and Elizabeth Pineau MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia will keep cooperating with the United States and its partners to fight Islamic State in Syria, but that cooperation will be in jeopardy if there are any repeats of Turkey's shooting down of a Russian jet, Russia's Vladimir Putin said. Speaking after talks in the Kremlin with French President Francois Hollande, Putin voiced lingering anger at Turkey's actions, saying he viewed the downing of the jet as an act of betrayal by a country Moscow had thought was its friend.
By Humeyra Pamuk and Vladimir Soldatkin ISTANBUL/MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia threatened economic retaliation against Turkey on Thursday and said it was still awaiting a reasonable explanation for the shooting down of its warplane, but Turkey dismissed the threats as "emotional" and "unfitting." In an escalating war of words, President Tayyip Erdogan responded to Russian accusations that Turkey has been buying oil and gas from Islamic State in Syria by accusing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his backers, which include Moscow, of being the real source of the group's financial and military power. The shooting down of the jet by the Turkish air force on Tuesday was one of the most serious clashes between a NATO member and Russia, and further complicated international efforts to battle Islamic State militants.
DETROIT (AP) — Matthew Stafford dropped back and perfectly lofted the ball where only Calvin Johnson could catch it.
Newly released police dashboard camera videos from the scene of the shooting of a black teenager by a white Chicago patrolman could raise fresh questions over documentation of the killing, as the city braced for an organized protest march on Friday. Audio and video should be automatically activated on the cameras, according to police department policy. Van Dyke on Tuesday became the first Chicago police officer in decades to be charged with murder for on-duty use of lethal force and is in jail pending a second bond hearing on Monday.
Russia on Thursday vowed to carry out broad retaliatory measures against Turkey's economy to avenge the downing of one of its warplanes as Moscow and Ankara traded furious verbal volleys. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan angrily rebuffed the Kremlin's demands for an apology and said his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, had snubbed a phone call from him after Tuesday's incident. The downing of the plane on the Syrian border has raised fears it could fuel a wider geopolitical conflict, and highlighted the difficulty of forging consensus on Syria as French President Francois Hollande held talks with Putin in Moscow.
Turkey will work with Russia and its allies to calm tensions after a Russian jet was downed near the Syrian border, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said in an opinion piece published by Britain's Times newspaper. Davutoglu also said that discussions were taking place in the wake of the incident, which has sent Ankara's relations with Moscow to their worst in recent memory.
Donald Trump denied Thursday that he mocked a reporter with a disability in a South Carolina speech, despite appearing to imitate mannerisms of the "poor guy" and make fun of him. A statement ...
MOSCOW (AP) — The presidents of France and Russia agreed Thursday to tighten cooperation in the fight against the Islamic State group, although they remained at odds over their approach toward Syrian President Bashar Assad.
By Noah Barkin and Sabine Siebold BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany will join the military campaign against Islamic State militants in Syria by deploying Tornado reconnaissance jets, refueling aircraft and a frigate to the region, after a direct appeal from close partner France for Berlin to do more. The decision to commit military personnel and hardware is a shift for Germany, which has resisted such direct involvement in the conflict. It still has no plans to join France, the United States and Russia in conducting air strikes in Syria.
Niger's government said on Thursday that Boko Haram militants killed 18 people, including a local religious leader, in an attack on a village in Niger's southern border area of Diffa on the Nigerian border. The Islamist militants rarely claim attacks but they are based in the north of Nigeria and often launch cross border attacks in Niger, Chad and Cameroon. The gunmen arrived in the village of Gogone near the shores of Lake Chad on foot and fired indiscriminately on residents and attacked their homes, security sources said.

By Elizabeth Pineau and Denis Pinchuk MOSCOW (Reuters) - France and Russia will exchange intelligence on Islamic State and other rebel groups to improve the effectiveness of their aerial bombing campaigns in Syria, French President Francois Hollande said on Thursday after talks with Vladimir Putin. Speaking after a working dinner in the Kremlin with Putin, Hollande said they had agreed to target only Islamic State and similar jihadi groups in Syria.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said Thursday the fatal shooting of an opposition leader appeared to be a gangland score-settling, dismissing claims it was politically motivated ahead of elections. The event was also attended by Lilian Tintori, the wife of a jailed opposition leader and a high-profile critic of Maduro. Polls have indicated Maduro's socialist government could lose its majority in the National Assembly in next month's vote, potentially weakening his grip on power.
ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — In new blow to media freedoms in Turkey, a court on Thursday ordered two prominent opposition journalists jailed pending trial over charges of willingly aiding an armed group and of espionage for revealing state secrets for their reports on alleged arms smuggling to Syria.
French President Francois Hollande said Thursday that Russia and France had agreed to coordinate strikes against Islamic State (IS) jihadists after talks with Vladimir Putin, who said Moscow could avoid bombing "healthy" opposition groups. "The strikes against Daesh (IS) will be intensified and be the object of coordination," Hollande said at a press conference with his Russian counterpart, adding that the strikes would focus on the transportation of oil. Hollande was in Moscow for the last leg of a diplomatic mission to rally support for a wider coalition against IS, with the two leaders finding common ground as recent victims of attacks that killed hundreds of people.

By Tiemoko Diallo and Adama Diarra BAMAKO (Reuters) - Mali authorities arrested two people on Thursday suspected of links to an attack on a luxury hotel in the capital that killed 20 people, the security ministry said. At least two armed men launched a dawn raid on the Radisson Blu hotel in Bamako on Friday last week, killing six Russians, three Chinese and an American among others, in the worst jihadist strike on the West African country in years. The siege ended hours later when Malian commandos stormed the hotel and freed 170 hostages.
France and Russia agreed on Thursday to exchange intelligence on Islamic State and other militant groups in Syria to help improve the effectiveness of their aerial bombing campaigns in the country, French President Francois Hollande said. Speaking after talks in the Kremlin with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Hollande said they had also agreed to target only Islamic State and similar jihadi groups.LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) — Nigeria's military cannot meet the president's December deadline to crush Boko Haram's Islamic uprising, and Nigerians must expect suicide bombings to continue, a government spokesman said Thursday.
By Kylie Gumpert and Alexander Besant NEW YORK (Reuters) - Crowds of spectators watched the marching bands, floats and giant balloons of Macy's annual Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday, held without incident under tight security almost two weeks after deadly attacks in Paris. President Barack Obama sought to reassure Americans on Wednesday they were safe to travel over the holiday.. Police, who were patrolling in record numbers, arrested a 41-year-old Russian tourist for flying a drone in Central Park near the parade route with his son, 14. Police walked alongside many parade groups and helicopters hovered overhead amid enhanced security following the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris.
Russia has accepted its "full suspension" from world athletics over widespread doping without even requesting a hearing, the IAAF said Thursday. The most severe punishment ever meted out by the International Association of Athletics Federations was made formal at a meeting of the world body's governing council in Monaco. Russia, which had previously denied any wrongdoing, vowed at the meeting to work with foreign inspectors so that it could be welcomed back into international competition.
IAAF president Sebastian Coe bowed to intense pressure and announced Thursday that he had stepped down from his paid role as an ambassador for Nike to focus more on cleaning up world track and field's beleaguered governing body. "It is clear that perception and reality have become horribly mangled," said Coe after an IAAF Council meeting. "I've stepped down from my ambassadorial role with Nike, which dates back 38 years.
Belgium borrowed American body armor to protect troops ordered onto the streets of Brussels this week to confront a perceived threat from Islamic State to mount attacks similar to those in Paris. Explaining that it lacked modern lightweight armor for all the troops patrolling outside metro stations and other key sites in the capital, the Belgian armed forces said in a statement on Thursday that they had borrowed an unspecified number of bullet-proof vests from U.S. military installations in Belgium. There was enough older, heavier body armor for all soldiers deployed in Brussels but its weight made it less practical: "The American authorities are showing, through this loan of supplies, their support for our country ... in these difficult times," the armed forces added.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said Thursday the shooting death of an opposition leader appeared to be a gangland score-settling, dismissing claims it was politically motivated ahead of key elections. Authorities were investigating the killing of Luis Manuel Diaz and "the interior ministry has evidence that suggests it was a contract killing to settle a score between rival gangs," Maduro said in a speech to supporters. An attacker shot Diaz dead on Wednesday evening in the central Guarico region at a campaign rally for the December 6 legislative elections, party officials said.
By Dmitry Zhdannikov and Guy Faulconbridge LONDON (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin will survive Western sanctions and lower oil prices but the Kremlin chief has brought such stagnation that Russia could eventually collapse, former tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky said on Thursday. Russia's richest man, who was arrested in 2003 after falling foul of Putin and released in 2013, told Reuters that Putin could survive oil prices of $45 per barrel but that the longer he stayed in power the greater the risks for Russia.
Polish supermarket chains say the government's proposed turnover tax needs major changes if it is to act as a weapon against foreign competitors dominating the Polish market. The eurosceptic Law and Justice (PiS) party that won last month's general election has not explicitly said that the new tax is meant to handicap Britain's Tesco, France's Carrefour and Auchan or Germany's Kaufland and Metro, and other foreign players. The party has said the tax revenue will fund generous family benefits and a lower retirement age -- campaign promises that helped it defeat the liberal Civic Platform (PO) party at the ballot box.
