Mike Pompeo to meet King Salman amid reports Riyadh may admit journalist was killed in Istanbul consulate

The US secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, has arrived in Saudi Arabia for talks with King Salman over the disappearance of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi, as reports emerged that Riyadh was poised to acknowledge that Khashoggi was killed in its consulate in Istanbul.

Pompeo landed in Riyadh on Tuesday morning and was due to meet the king immediately to discuss the crisis surrounding Khashoggi, who vanished two weeks ago during a visit to the Istanbul consulate. He made no remarks upon landing.

China on defensive over camps where ex-prisoners have told of arbitrary detention, abuse and indoctrination

A senior official in Xinjiang has described mass internment camps for Muslim minorities as “training” and “boarding schools” where residents receive vocational, legal, and language training as well as “de-extremisation education”.

Beijing has faced growing international criticism for its crackdown in Xinjiang, a far north-western territory of China where it holds as many as a million Muslims prisoner in camps. Former detainees have said that they were subjected to political indoctrination and abuse.

In a rare, detailed interview published by the state-run news agency Xinhua, the Xinjiang governor, Shohrat Zakir, said: “Xinjiang conducts vocational skills education and training according to law. The purpose is to fundamentally eliminate the environment and soil that breeds terrorism and religious extremism, and eliminate the terrorism activities before they take place.”

PM to seek cabinet support before calling on EU leaders to drop backstop proposal

Theresa May faces a frantic 48 hours to try to save her Brexit negotiating strategy after she admitted talks had ground to a halt because of the EU’s insistence upon a Northern Ireland-only backstop.

The prime minister is expected to plead with EU leaders to drop their Irish backstop proposal at a make-or-break summit dinner on Wednesday night after seeking the support of members of her cabinet on Tuesday morning.

Diplomatic anger and trade threats at Scott Morrison’s announcement that a shift was under consideration
• George Browning on the suggestion to move Australia’s embassy to Jerusalem

Representatives from 13 Middle Eastern and North African embassies in Australia have condemned Scott Morrison’s signal that the Australian embassy could be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, declaring it a “fatal mistake” that could lead to a breakdown in economic relations with Arab and Muslim nations.

With Indonesia also expressing concern at the development, Izzat Salah Abdulhadi, the head of the Palestinian delegation to Australia, said at the conclusion of an emergency meeting in Canberra on Tuesday that people “were really angry, really frustrated, and disappointed with this policy”.

WikiLeaks founder told by Ecuadorian embassy to respect rules or lose diplomatic asylum

Ecuador has laid out a stringent new set of house rules for Julian Assange, warning the whistleblower to avoid online comments about political issues – and ordering him to clean his bathroom and take better care of his cat, or risk losing his pet.

Assange, who has been living in Ecuador’s UK embassy since June 2012, must obtain approval for all visitors from diplomatic staff three days in advance. He is expressly banned from activities which could be “considered as political or interfering with the internal affairs of other states,” according to the memo seen by the Guardian.

The planned ceremony has angered Fox News and right-wing commentators, which is exactly the point says the organiser

A coven of witches will gather in an occult bookstore in Brooklyn, New York, on Saturday to place a hex on supreme court justice Brett Kavanaugh. Tickets to the event, which cost $10, with half the proceeds going to women’s and LGBT charities, have already sold out.

The event is not out of the ordinary for Catland Books, which describes itself as “Brooklyn’s premier metaphysical boutique and event space”. They have previously held ceremonies to hex Donald Trump as well as a “hex your ex” ceremony on Valentine’s Day.

Santa Maria Tonantzintla was set to be one of Mexico’s first smart cities – but residents saw it as an attempt to westernise their town and leave tradition behind

Lupita Tecual Porquillo had heard a rumour that the plaza was going to be “remodelled”. The 51-year-old grocery store owner lives around the corner from the centre of Santa Maria Tonantzintla, a sleepy town in the state of Puebla, about three hours from Mexico City. She assumed “remodelling” meant repairing the plaza’s centuries-old cobblestone pavement.

In November 2017, heavy machinery arrived to tear out the characteristic cobblestones and replace them with smooth, uniform stone tiles. On 11 January, Tecual Porquillo discovered the municipality had also knocked down the clock tower and stucco bridge – both beloved landmarks in the central plaza.

The new Asian Town mall was designed to cater to Qatar’s roughly 2 million migrant workers – but critics say it is simply a way to segregate them

At first glance, it is like any other entertainment complex in Qatar: a giant shopping mall, a multiplex cinema and an amphitheatre for musical shows. But there are no high-end boutiques, no women … and no Qataris.

Welcome to Asian Town, an entertainment and shopping venue in the heart of the largest labour camp in Qatar, on the outskirts of the capital, Doha. Each day, thousands of young men gather here from the workers’ dormitories that stretch out into the desert for miles around, to enjoy mutton curries, Bollywood films or just a sanctuary from the searing heat.

Survivors of violence, rape and domestic abuse had a path to recourse through the US visa system. Now that is under threat

Yolanda Vzarona was kidnapped at knifepoint by a jilted former boyfriend. He stripped her naked and drove her into the mountains near San Diego. He raped her; he said if she told anyone he’d kill her children. After hours of pleading, she convinced him to let her go. “I’ll never be the same woman,” she said of that day of terror, more than 10 years ago.

But what happened next may have been even more difficult: despite being an undocumented immigrant, Varona called the police. She helped law enforcement find her attacker and put him in jail. And she went to court to testify.

Rolling coverage of the day’s political developments as they happen

More from the Guardian’s Brussels bureau chief Daniel Boffey. On the basis of an EU briefing, he thinks Theresa May should get ready to hear some hard truths in Brussels this week.

Gloomy by EU official. If all gone well Sun, a joint political declaration would have been on table at the leaders dinner. "Since there is no agreement on the Irish backstop there will not be an outline of joint pol dec on table on Wed will not change before Wed"

Theresa May will address the 27 EU leaders on the third floor of the Europa, before the rest of them move on to their dinner on Wednesday evening. There is zero suggestion that anything Theresa May says will turn the dial, and lead to a political response by the 27.

Asked whether Donald Tusk would be concerned not to disrespect Theresa May, after the Salzburg fiasco, an EU official says that "telling the truth" is not being disrespectful. Fear that the PM might hear some more hard truths this week.

EU official on whether this remains the moment of truth summit: "Clearly we are not in the place we wanted to be in Octm so from that perspective that truth is... we have clarity actually... More clarity now than in Sept in Salzburg"...

.. "what we have found out in the process leading to this meeting on wed is that it is not going to be so easy to find a deal between the EU and the UK", the Eu official adds.

On Theresa May's domestic volatility, and whether this will play into EU response. Official says that they held back from a "brutal and early" knock back on Chequers.. But while choreography can be led by politics, substance cannot. A message will be sent on the Irish backstop.

There has been nothing since Raab visit. The hope had been an agreement on Monday... and that progress has proven illusory..

Basic pay jumped by 3.1% per year in the three months to August, the fastest rate since the depths of the financial crisis in 2009, my colleague Graeme Wearden reports. He has more on this and on the unemployment figures (it remains at 4% - a 43-year low) on his business live blog.

Zero tolerance has left asylum seekers literally suspended between two countries – with some camping outside for days

Gateway International Bridge is one of three bridges across the Rio Grande between the Mexican city of Matamoros and Brownsville, Texas, that forms a metropolis spanning two countries.

Southbound, cars and people trickle virtually unimpeded into Mexico. Northbound, cars line up bumper to bumper while crowds of pedestrians snake along the sidewalk to join the queue for the US port of entry. On this sidewalk, at the Mexico end of the bridge, is a cluster of visibly frazzled refugees, some with folding chairs and tables and others lying on thin rugs on the ground, sheltering in the shadow cast by a nearby customs building.

Recreational marijuana will be legal throughout the country, but rules will vary from province to province

Canada will this week become the second country in the world to legalise recreational marijuana, but as they negotiate a patchwork of new legislation and inconsistent enforcement, smokers may soon find that their enjoyment of weed is still blunted.

New rules governing cannabis use are different in each of the country’s ten provinces and three territories, and campaigners warn that experimentation could still result in hefty fines – or even arrest.

Further purchase of luxurious cars for regional summit in impoverished country is greeted with anger and disbelief

Papua New Guinea has reportedly added three Bentleys to its controversial fleet of luxury cars purchased for the upcoming Apec leaders’ summit in November.

Papua New Guineans reacted with outrage to the news that the PNG government had bought 40 Maseratis for the summit despite the country struggling with a nationwide polio outbreak, increased rates of tuberculosis and chronic funding shortages for health, education and other services.

The philanthropist warns that stability in Africa makes a huge difference to the world, and that investing in the health and education of its young people is vital

What worries Bill Gates most? The booming population of Africa looms over his foundation’s latest global survey. By the end of this century there will be 4 billion more people on Earth – and 3 billion of these extra souls will be born in Africa. The challenge, he says, is that “Africa must almost quadruple its agricultural productivity to feed itself. That’s very daunting.”

The philanthropist is torn between sending out a message of hope and a message of fear when I meet him at his foundation’s spacious campus in the heart of his hometown, Seattle.

In a country where one in four women have a child by 19, and health workers offering birth control have been met by men with machetes, confronting myths about contraception is vital

A woman lies on her back, a one-year-old straddling her. One hand is over her eyes, the other held out. A nurse gently inserts a small white strip of contraceptive implant into her upper arm while her baby plays on her. They beckon me in. Privacy hardly seems to be an issue here.

I am in a tent in Rwibale, in the Kyenjojo district of Uganda. We have driven for about five hours from Kampala to get here. It is a place that Prosper Kigumire, who is showing me around, describes as “peri-rural”. It seems rural enough, a village – if that. I am with the mobile outreach team of Marie Stopes International. “I have four children so this does not hurt,” says Monica, the women who is getting the implant. “I have no husband.”

Pundits say the senator’s revelation of her ancestry – a rebuke to Trump – is a sure sign of her 2020 plans

More conclusively than it tells us anything about her genetic heritage, Senator Elizabeth Warren’s neatly choreographed release of her own DNA analysis makes one thing abundantly clear: she’s running for the White House in 2020.

That’s the primary takeaway from political pundits in the wake of a slick, five-minute campaign video, in which the firebrand liberal from Massachusetts openly discussed her family background, specifically her Native American ancestry. Technically it was released by her Senate campaign against the Republican Geoff Diehl, but it’s clear it has nothing to do with that race, which Warren is expected to win handily.

Should the kingdom make good on its warnings, the repercussions could be felt around the world

Saudi Arabia enjoys a privileged position both in geopolitical and economic terms. It will have a powerful hand to play if tensions with the US and the west escalate and it follows through with Sunday’s warning of retaliation.

Its vast oil reserves – it claims to have about 260bn barrels still to extract – afford the most obvious advantage. The kingdom is the world’s largest oil exporter, pumping or shipping about 7m barrels a day, and giving Riyadh huge clout in the global economy because it wields power to push up prices.

Tracking right to lure AfD voters while rocking the boat in the coalition government turned off moderate Germans

It is, as Der Spiegel said, as if the all-conquering Bayern München, Germany’s most successful ever football club, had been ignominiously relegated – but with rather more far-reaching consequences.

The CSU, the sister party of Angela Merkel’s CDU, has dominated Bavarian politics for six decades, winning absolute majorities in 12 of the past 13 elections. And it has not done a bad job: the well-heeled home state of BMW and Siemens has the highest employment and lowest crime rate in the country.

The archbishop of Constantinople has granted Ukraine’s wish for a church independent of Moscow

Donald Trump seems strangely in awe of Vladimir Putin. Theresa May’s attempts to face down the Kremlin after Salisbury have had limited impact. But has Putin finally met his match in Bartholomew I, the 270th archbishop of Constantinople-New Rome, ecumenical patriarch, and “first among equals” of the Eastern Orthodox church?

In the 2,000-year struggle between church and state, Barth-olomew chalked up a notable victory last week. Defying protests from the Kremlin and Russia’s clergy, the archbishop granted Ukraine’s wish to establish an independent church that will no longer answer, as it has since 1686, to the Moscow patriarchate. The decision was taken at a synod at Orthodox “headquarters” in Istanbul, formerly Constantinople.

Donald Trump says he has spoken to King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud for about 20 minutes about the Jamal Khashoggi case. The journalist disappeared after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October, but the US president said it sounded like neither the king nor Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had knowledge of the incident.

Turkish sources have said they believe Khashoggi was killed inside the building and his body removed, allegations that Riyadh dismisses as baseless.

"I sounded to me like maybe there could have been rogue killers - who knows," Trump told reporters at the White House.
