Clinton to press Trump to spell out policy plans in presidential debate

U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton holds a news conference on the airport tarmac in front of her campaign plane in White PlainsBy Alana Wise WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrat Hillary Clinton will press Republican Donald Trump to provide more specifics on his policies in their presidential debate on Monday, two top Clinton campaign aides said ahead of a face-off that could set U.S. television audience records. On the eve of the debate at Hofstra University in suburban New York, aides to Clinton have sought to cast Trump, a New York businessman and former reality TV host, as lacking the temperament and experience to serve as president. Trump's aides for their part have sought to reinforce voter doubts about Clinton's trustworthiness.

For some Democrats, it's voting for Clinton - and keeping it quiet

A photo of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is seen on a window in the Carroll Gardens neighborhood of BrooklynBy Amy Tennery NEW YORK (Reuters) - One would expect voters from the heavily Democratic Brooklyn neighborhood of Cobble Hill to pick presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in the Nov. 8 general election. It's a stark contrast to the 2012 and 2008 campaigns, when President Barack Obama whipped up a frenzy of support from Democrats and his signature "Hope" and "Forward" signs were ubiquitous. The scarcity of lawn and window signs is an indication of the Democratic nominee's struggle to generate enthusiasm among left-leaning voters, a challenge that's borne out in polling data, and could potentially haunt her if voters fail to turn out on election day.

Trump tells Netanyahu he would recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital

Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu departs after meeting with Republican presidential nominee Trump at Trump Tower in New YorkBy Alana Wise WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Sunday told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that if elected, the United States would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the campaign said, marking a potential dramatic shift in U.S. policy on the issue. During the meeting that lasted more than an hour at Trump Tower in New York, Trump told Netanyahu that under his administration, the United States would "recognize Jerusalem as the undivided capital of the State of Israel." While Israel calls Jerusalem its capital, few other countries accept that, including the United States.

Kerry's ceaseless diplomacy faces sternest test on Syria

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry boards a boat for a cruise through Boston harborBy Lesley Wroughton NEW YORK (Reuters) - John Kerry had heard enough. After last week's bombing of a U.N.aid convoy in Syria dealt a deathblow toa ceasefire deal in which he had invested all his diplomatic capital with Russia,the U.S. Secretary of State tossedaside a page of notes and looked at Russian Foreign Minister SergeiLavrov across the horseshoe-shaped table in the U.N.Security Council. "I listened to my colleague from Russia, and I sort of felt a little bit like they're sort of in a parallel universe here," said a visibly angry Kerry, effectively calling Lavrov a liar for blaming the United States for spoiling the ceasefire.

Aleppo Airstrikes Kill 12 Members of Same Family, Observer Group Says

Aleppo Airstrikes Kill 12 Members of Same Family, Observer Group SaysEven as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has renewed his plea for government and opposition forces to stop fighting in Syria, the country's city of Aleppo was pounded overnight and Friday morning by intense bombing. Among the victims were 12 members of the same family, including six children, who were killed by airstrikes in the village of Bashkateen in Aleppo's western countryside today, said the U.K.-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which attributed the strikes to Syrian government forces. In east Aleppo, at least 27 people, including two children from one family, were killed by Russian and government airstrikes, according to the observatory.
