Sex abuse claims brought against 700 Catholic clergy in Illinois

Sex abuse claims brought against 700 Catholic clergy in IllinoisAlmost 700 clergymen in Illinois have been accused of child sexual assault, a far greater number than the Catholic Church had previously disclosed, the Midwestern US state’s top prosecutor revealed Wednesday. Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan said the Church’s revelations that 185 clergy members were credibly accused of sexual abuse fell short of the number her office has uncovered. The preliminary results of an investigation that began in August found more than 500 additional priests and clergy members with sexual abuse allegations in the Midwestern state’s six dioceses — a total of at least 685 accused.

X-ray images show tools Khashoggi killers brought to Istanbul, Turkish paper claims

X-ray images show tools Khashoggi killers brought to Istanbul, Turkish paper claimsThe 15-strong Saudi kill team responsible for the murder of columnist Jamal Khashoggi carried luggage containing scissors, syringes and a stun gun, a pro-government Turkish paper has claimed. Sabah, a daily newspaper headquartered in Istanbul, published images on Tuesday purported to be airport X-ray scans of the team's bags as they left Istanbul for Riyadh on October 2, the day of Mr Khashoggi’s murder.  A number of tools and pieces of equipment can be seen, including walkie-talkies, a signal jammer and a pair of scissors.  The bags were loaded onto two private jets but police were not able to open them due to diplomatic immunity, according to the report. The paper, which is close to Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), is one of a number of outlets that has published a steady stream of leaks providing lurid details of Khashoggi’s death, a tactic seemingly designed to keep pressure on Riyadh and its allies. How the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi unfolded Mr Khashoggi, a regular contributor to the Washington Post, was killed in the kingdom’s Istanbul consulate while attempting to secure paperwork that would allow him to remarry.  According to Istanbul’s chief prosecutor, he was strangled and his body dismembered soon after entering the building.  Saudi officials initially denied all involvement but in the face of mounting international outrage admitted that the columnist had been killed as part of a “rogue” operation. The X-ray images were published as the New York Times reported that in an audio recording of the killing, one of the team responsible can be heard instructing a superior to "tell your boss" after the murder takes place, a suspected reference to Mohammed bin Salman, the Saudi crown prince.  Khashoggi was once close to the royal family but went into self-imposed exile last year and had since been critical of the Crown Prince in his writing. Mr Erdogan described the tape as a “calamity” this week and said it shocked even a Saudi intelligence officer who listened to it, according to local media. The Turkish president added that orders for the killing came from the highest levels of the kingdom.

Russian company seeks to dismiss U.S. charges brought by Mueller

Russian company seeks to dismiss U.S. charges brought by MuellerBy Sarah N. Lynch WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A Russian company accused of helping fund a propaganda operation to sway the 2016 presidential election in Donald Trump’s favor asked a federal judge on Monday to dismiss charges brought by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, saying Mueller was unlawfully appointed and lacks prosecutorial authority. Concord Management and Consulting LLC, a firm that prosecutors say is controlled by a businessman dubbed by Russian media as “Putin’s cook,” argued in a filing in U.S. district court in Washington that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein violated the Appointments Clause of the U.S. Constitution when he hired Mueller in May 2017. Concord is one of three entities, along with 13 Russian individuals, indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office in February in an alleged criminal and espionage conspiracy to tamper with the U.S. race, boost Trump and disparage his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

Someone brought an IRL World Cup meme to a soccer match

Someone brought an IRL World Cup meme to a soccer matchThe U.S., along with Canada and Mexico, will co-host the World Cup in 2026. This means it has a good chance of getting an automatic bid for the tournament, even if the team doesn't actually qualify. Fun loophole, right? And considering the U.S. men's team didn't qualify this year, it's a pretty exciting idea for American soccer fans. So exciting, in fact, that the idea has taken on a miniature meme life of its own, courtesy of Roll Safe. SEE ALSO: World Cup opening game proved a little tricky for people with colour blindness By this, we mean that everyone is making the same joke.

At a New York Red Bulls match on Wednesday (that is soccer, in case you were wondering), Joseph Mandil took this photo of the meme in the IRL wild. It later climbed to the top of r/sports on Reddit. The timing makes sense — the U.S.'s co-hosting gig had just been announced, so enthusiasm was running high. Still, a whole
sign? That is dedication. See y'all in 2026. WATCH: Artistic cycling is a real sport
