KABUL (Reuters) -Raihana, 19, wanted to be a doctor, studying until midnight in recent weeks for Afghanistan's university entrance exam, a chance for women to advance their education even as they face growing restrictions from the Taliban government.

Raihana's father, a shopkeeper, rushed her to hospital but she did not survive.

-Tesla Inc on Sunday announced lower-than-expected electric vehicle deliveries in the third quarter, as logistical challenges overshadowed its record deliveries. The top electric car maker said "it is becoming increasingly challenging to secure vehicle transportation capacity and at a reasonable cost," but some analysts were also concerned about demand for high-ticket items due to the weakening global economy. Ford Motor said last month inflation-related costs would be $1 billion more than expected in the third quarter and that parts shortages had delayed deliveries.

BERLIN (AP) — Borussia Dortmund failed to capitalize on Bundesliga leader Union Berlin’s first loss when it conceded a one-goal lead and lost to Cologne 3-2 on Saturday. Eintracht Frankfurt defeated Union 2-0 at home, ending the last unbeaten team’s record in the league, though Urs Fischer’s side remained top for the third round straight – on goal difference ahead of Freiburg. Freiburg enjoyed a 2-1 win at home over Mainz to consolidate its great start after eight rounds. Instead of going top, D

One man is dead after a fire in a six-unit seniors' home in Tyne Valley, P.E.I., Sunday morning. Four other residents were able to escape unharmed, said William Bishop, chief of the Tyne Valley Fire Department. The call came in at 8:47 a.m., he said. "When we arrived flames were coming out to the east on the front and the back of the building structure," Bishop said. The building is owned by the P.E.I. Housing Corporation. "One thing about all these seniors, they're all mobile, so we're able to
The Premier League has provided six of the last 10 Champions League finalists and its clubs were by far the biggest spenders in the summer transfer window, strengthening their already-deep squads and weakening some of their European rivals in the process. No wonder many were anticipating English domination of the Champions League this season. It's not happened. After two rounds of the group stage, it has been an underwhelming start by the English teams, with three of the four having already lost
More Ottawans voted in early advance polls ahead of this year's municipal election than in previous years, and a University of Ottawa political scientist says he expects overall voter turnout to also be higher. In four advance voting days from Sept. 24 to 27, where eligible voters could drop by any of nine locations across the city, 18,876 Ottawans cast a ballot. That's an increase of more than 3,000 over 2018 and more than 10,000 over 2014, when special advance polls debuted and were open for j
LONDON (AP) — Gabriel Jesus marked his first north London derby with a goal as Arsenal beat 10-man Tottenham 3-1 on Saturday to strengthen its grip on first place in the Premier League. Jesus took advantage of a defensive blunder to make it 2-1 early in the second half and Tottenham’s chances of a comeback were then ruined by Emerson Royal earning a straight red card for a needless studs-up challenge on Gabriel Martinelli in the 62nd minute. Granit Xhaka quickly capitalized on the man-advantage

JERUSALEM (Reuters) -Israel gave its preliminary nod on Sunday to a draft U.S.-brokered deal demarcating a maritime border with Lebanon that may lead to profit-sharing in a disputed Mediterranean gas prospect. Hoping to defuse one source of conflict between the hostile countries and prod them toward accommodation, U.S. envoy Amos Hochstein last week submitted a new proposal that would pave the way for offshore energy exploration. As Beirut mulls the 10-page draft - details of which have been kept under wraps - the Iran-backed Hezbollah movement called it "a very important step" on Saturday while Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri, a powerful Hezbollah ally, deemed it "positive".
TALLINN, Estonia (AP) — Fewer Russians have crossed into neighbouring countries in recent days, according to local authorities, despite persistent anxiety over the partial mobilization the Kremlin launched less than two weeks ago to bolster its forces fighting in Ukraine. The mass exodus of Russian men — alone or with their families or friends — began Sept. 21, shortly after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the partial call-up of reservists. In Russia, the vast majority of men under ag
