HANGZHOU, China, Oct 1 (Reuters) - North Korea soccer coach Sin Yong Nam defended his players after several clashed with match officials on the pitch after their 2-1 defeat to Japan in the Asian Games quarter-finals in Hangzhou on Sunday. With the confrontation drawing in the assistant referees and several security staff, the North Korean coach also ran to his players to try to defuse the situation. The North Korean players were earlier furious when Lutfullin awarded a penalty to Japan after goalkeeper Kang Juh Yok charged out and clipped the feet of Jun Nishikawa with an outstretched arm. Japan coach Go Oiwa declined to comment on the incident when asked.

We are environmentalresearchers whose work shows a need for better public health practices to protect people from dust storm pollutants. This work includes analyzing satellite images, creating simulation models for predicting dust particle transport, and identifying each dust storm's particle content. Public health recommendationsWe offer several practices here that we believe would help public health agencies successfully tackle the problem of polluted dust storms. One physical catalog for dust storm particles already exists at the 19th-century dust storm archive kept by the Natural History Museum at Humboldt University in Berlin. As deserts increasingly adjoin cities, industry and transportation corridors, desert dust storms will increasingly mirror human activity on land.

Air strikes in northern Iraq destroy Kurdish targets after the bombing in the capital, says the Turkish interior ministry. Turkey says its warplanes have carried out raids on Kurdish targets in northern Iraq following a suicide attack on a government building in capital Ankara. A Turkish interior ministry statement on Sunday said some 20 targets of the banned Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) group were “destroyed” in the aerial operation, including caves, shelters and depots. The strikes came hours after a suicide bomber detonated an explosive device near an entrance of the interior ministry building in Ankara, injuring two police officers. Al Jazeera’s Sinem Koseoglu, reporting from Istanbul, said security was tightened around the parliament and interior ministry buildings after the attack.

Dozens mourn Wagner boss 40 days after his death in a plane crashDozens of mourners have hailed Yevgeny Prigozhin as a patriotic hero of Russia who had spoken truth to power. It is still unclear what caused the plane to crash two months to the day since the mercenary chief's failed mutiny. Supporters waved the black flags of Wagner which sport a skull and the motto "Blood, Honour, Motherland, Courage". At memorials in Moscow and other Russian cities dozens of Wagner fighters and ordinary Russians paid their respects, though there was no mass outpouring of grief. And that's why he became popular both in Russia and abroad," it said.

The Malian army said on Sunday that new fighting had broken out in the north between the military and armed rebel groups, the latest in a series of attacks on the army in the troubled West African country. The army reported on social media "intense fighting" against "terrorists" in the early hours of the morning, in the area of Bamba which separatist rebels claimed to have taken control of. Tuareg-dominated separatist groups said on Saturday that they had inflicted heavy losses on the Malian military in an attack in the centre of the country, claiming to have killed 81 soldiers. Since the end of August, the north of Mali has seen a resumption of hostilities by the CMA and an intensification of jihadist attacks against the Malian army. Mali's junta, which seized power in 2020, faces a multitude of security challenges throughout the poor and landlocked country.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A federal judge on Saturday blocked two portions of North Carolina’s new abortion law from taking effect while a lawsuit continues. But nearly all of the restrictions approved by the legislature this year, including a near-ban after 12 weeks of pregnancy, aren’t being specifically challenged and remain intact. The litigation doesn’t directly seek to topple the crux of the abortion law enacted in May after GOP legislators overrode Democratic Gov. North Carolina had a ban on most abortions after 20 weeks before July 1, when the law scaled it back to 12 weeks. A spokesperson for Senate leader Phil Berger, one of the legislative defendants, said Saturday that Eagles’ order was still being reviewed.

Cape Town — An American drug manufacturer has taken an important step to open the way to improved access to the treatment of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) across Africa. And a South African campaigner for less expensive treatment has called on other drugs companies to follow J&J's example. Johnson & Johnson announced on September 29 that it will no longer enforce patents for the drug bedaquiline, which it sells as SIRTURO, in 134 low- and middle-income countries. J&J said in its announcement that bedaquiline was introduced in 2012 "after years of focused investments." She said drugs companies' practice of enforcing their patents and their pricing levels "has no place in public health."
