Senators are due to vote later this week on whether to remove her from office for good or whether to reinstate her.

FARC, Colombia lay down arms after truce goes into effect

http://www.dw.com

An indefinite truce between the government in Bogota and Colombia's largest rebel group has gone into effect. It comes after the Colombian government and FARC agreed on a historic peace agreement last week.
The permanent and definitive ceasefire went into effect at 12:01 a.m. Monday (0500 UTC) and ended a 52-year-old war between the Colombian state and Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), after the two sides agreed last week on a historic peace agreement.
FARC supremo Rodrigo Londono gave the ceasefire order from Havana, where the two sides conducted four years of peace negotiations.
"Never again will parents be burying their sons and daughters killed in the war," said Londono, who is also known as Timochenko. "All rivalries and grudges will remain in the past."
Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos announced on Friday the military would cease hostilities on Monday.This means nothing more and nothing less than the end of the FARC as an armed group," Santos said, adding that the final peace deal would be signed in Colombia. "The children and youth of our country have never known a single day without the violence of the conflict. Neither have the adults."

China will get involved if India foments Balochistan trouble: Chinese think tank

http://www.hindustantimes.com

China will have “to get involved” if any Indian “plot” disrupts the $46 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) in restive Balochistan, an influential Chinese think tank has warned India.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s reference to Balochistan in his Independence Day speech is the “latest concern” for China and among its scholars, Hu Shisheng, the director of the Institute of South and Southeast Asian and Oceanian Studies at the China Institute of Contemporary International Relations (CICIR), told IANS in a freewheeling interview.
The researcher, at one of China’s most powerful think tanks, which is affiliated with the ministry of state security, also said India’s growing military ties with the US and its changed attitude on the disputed South China Sea are ringing alarm bells for China.
“The latest concern for China is Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech from the Red Fort in which he referred to the issues like Kashmir (occupied by Pakistan) and Balochistan,” Hu said.
“It could be regarded as a watershed moment in India’s policy towards Pakistan. Why Chinese scholars are concerned is because this is for the first time India has mentioned it,” he added.

Wednesday speech could clarify Trump's immigration policy

http://www.usnews.com

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump announced he'll be making a speech on illegal immigration on Wednesday in Arizona, after a week of speculation that he might be softening his hard-line promise to deport 11 million people living in the United States illegally.

The speech, posted in a Tweet late Sunday, was initially set for last week in Colorado, but was pushed back as Trump and his team wrestled over the details of what he would propose. There has been debate within his campaign about immigrants who haven't committed crimes beyond their immigration offenses.

The candidate's shifting stance hasn't made it easy for top supporters and advisers, from his running mate on down, to defend him or explain some campaign positions. Across the Sunday news shows, a parade of Trump stand-ins, led by vice presidential nominee Mike Pence, couldn't say whether Trump was sticking with or changing a central promise to use a "deportation force" to expel immigrants here illegally. And they didn't bother defending his initial response Saturday to the killing of a mother as she walked her baby on a Chicago street.

Zika spreading across Singapore with more than 40 cases reported

http://www.therural.com.au

Singapore health authorities have warned the Zika virus, which has been linked to a rare birth defect, is spreading in the affluent city-state.

The Ministry of Health on Sunday confirmed 41 cases of locally-transmitted Zika, including 36 foreign construction workers.

Authorities said they had identified "other areas of concern" outside the Aljunied Crescent and Simms Drive areas on the island's south east where the 41 cases were confirmed.

On Saturday, authorities confirmed the first local transmission of the virus to a 47 year-old Malaysian woman, also from the Aljunied Crescent area.

The Ministry of Health warned in a statement that it cannot rule out "further community transmission in Singapore since some of those tested positive also live or work in other parts of Singapore."

"We expect to identity more positive cases," it said.

None of those confirmed to have the virus have travelled to Zika-affected areas recently.

"This confirms that local transmission of Zika virus infection has taken place," the ministry said.

In Syria, Rebels Threaten Kurdish-Controlled Territory as U.S. Allies Clash

http://www.nytimes.com

BEIRUT, Lebanon — In a new escalation that further complicates American involvement in the Syrian war, Syrian rebels pressed deeper into the northern part of the country on Sunday, seizing territory with the aid of Turkish airstrikes.The rebels, with Turkey’s help, took the border town of Jarabulus last week from the Islamic State — an incursion supported by the United States. But the rebels are now advancing into territory controlled by Syrian Kurds.

That means the new fighting pits two American-backed Syrian forces against each other: rebel groups aided by the C.I.A. and allied intelligence agencies, and Kurdish-led militias that work with the Pentagon under an umbrella group called the Syrian Democratic Forces, or S.D.F. The United States has considered the Kurdish-led militias its most reliable partner on the ground in the fight against the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL.
