Sirens blared and thousands of doves were released as Chinese President Xi Jinping presided over a sombre ceremony in Nanjing marking 80 years since the wartime massacre in the city by Japanese troops. "China and Japan are close neighbours, neighbours who can't move away," said Yu Zhengsheng, a former member of China's top Communist leadership who now chairs a parliamentary body. China and Japan should build on their "long, rich history" of links to deepen "friendship", Yu said, avoiding reference to bitter disputes over the massacre.

By Patricia Zengerle WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Congress will allow a deadline on reimposing sanctions on Iran to pass this week, congressional and White House aides said on Tuesday, leaving a pact between world powers and Tehran intact at least temporarily. In October, Trump declined to certify that Iran was complying with the nuclear agreement reached among Tehran, the United States and others in 2015. Congressional leaders have announced no plans to introduce a resolution to reimpose sanctions before Wednesday's deadline and aides say lawmakers will let the deadline pass without action.

Zulifikar Haider hoped his daughter would live the American dream when she married a fellow Bangladeshi living in the United States, but that dream turned into a nightmare when the family saw pictures of her husband wounded after allegedly trying to set off a bomb in a crowded New York commuter hub. Haider's family had been worried when his son-in-law, Akayed Ullah, 27, missed a regular call to his wife on Monday. "Even in our worst nightmares, we could not have foreseen this," Haider, 62, told Reuters on Wednesday evening, following two days of questioning by Bangladesh's counterterrorism police.

The World Bank will stop financing oil and gas exploration and extraction from 2019, it announced Tuesday at a climate summit seeking to boost the global economy's shift to clean energy. "The World Bank Group will no longer finance upstream oil and gas, after 2019," it said in a statement in Paris, where world leaders sought to unlock more money for the shift away from Earth-warming fossil fuels. The move, it said, was meant to help countries meet the greenhouse gas-curbing pledges they had made in support of the 2015 Paris Agreement to limit global warming.

Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura urged Russia on Wednesday to convince its ally the Syrian government of the need to clinch a peace deal to end the nearly seven-year-old war. De Mistura, speaking on Swiss television station RTS, said failure to make peace quickly through United Nations mediation could lead to "a fragmentation of Syria".

The United States, European Union and Japan jointly rounded on China's "market-distorting subsidies" at the World Trade Organization conference in Argentina Tuesday. A joint statement from the three powers made no direct mention of China, but said "severe excess capacity in key sectors, exacerbated by government-financed and supported capacity expansion, unfair competitive conditions caused by large market-distorting subsidies and state-owned enterprises" were serious problems for international trade.

It might be hard to believe for anyone outside the United States, but the Jetta is still Volkswagen's biggest-selling model in America. Despite the continuing decline of sedan sales, the seemingly unstoppable rise of the SUV, the sheer quality of the Golf, and the age of the Jetta, it really is still VW's most important model in the US. It's therefore a pretty big deal that the German automaker has now released some sketches of the all-new 2019 Jetta ahead of a full reveal at the Detroit Auto Show in January.

Women in Ohio would be prohibited from receiving abortions because of a fetal Down syndrome diagnosis under a bill that passed the state senate on Wednesday and is heading to Republican Governor John Kasich’s desk. Lawmakers voted 20-12 in favor of the law, which criminalizes abortion if the physician has knowledge that the procedure is being sought due to a diagnosis of Down syndrome, a genetic disorder caused when abnormal cell division results in an extra full or partial copy of chromosome 21. Doctors would lose their medical licenses in the state and face a fourth-degree felony charge under the law if they were to perform an abortion with that knowledge.

A Japanese businessman with terminal cancer organised his own 'funeral' party at a Tokyo hotel and invited his closest friends and business associates along. Satoru Anzaki was diagnosed with gall bladder cancer in October but decided against chemotherapy due to the side effects. The 80-year-old took out an advert in the The Nikkei, the world’s largest financial newspaper, explaining his decision not to undergo end-stage chemotherapy. Around 1,000 guests attended the 'end of life' celebration organised by Anzaki, the former president of Komatsu, the Japanese mining equipment maker. “I am satisfied that I could say ‘thank you’ to people I met in my life,” he told Japanese media. “As I want to maximise the quality of life during the time I have left, I have decided not to receive treatment given the side effects. “I have enjoyed my life very much. I thought that being despondent is not in my nature.” He added: “I am happy to be able to convey my gratitude in my own words. “I want to make the most of the rest of my time and be put in a coffin having thought ‘my life was fun’.” One friend who attended the party said: “It was just like Anzaki to host an event like this. He values human relationships more than anything else.”

A Muslim cleric accused of issuing a fatwa banning women from working on farms has been arrested in Bangladesh, police said Wednesday. The imam and five mosque officials face charges after their announcement prompted locals in the western town of Kumarkhali to try and prevent women from going to work in the fields. "They took the decision after prayers on Friday, banning women from going out of their homes," local police chief Abdul Khaleque told AFP.

In 2017, Wal-Mart Stores Inc (NYSE: WMT) has proven that there's plenty of room for two e-commerce giants to thrive in the U.S. market. According to Stifel analyst Scott Devitt, there's no need for U.S. investors to pick between Alibaba Group Holding Ltd ( BABA) and JD.com Inc ( JD) in China. While Alibaba and JD continue to compete with each other for market share, both will likely deliver huge growth numbers in the years ahead.

Niels van Roij is a London-based Dutch car designer known for projects such as the Future London Taxi, a TVR Artemis concept around eight years ago, and most often for taking luxury cars and turning them into limousines. It was revealed a couple of months ago that Roij was working on something that looked a lot like a Tesla Model S hearse, but new renderings of his Tesla Model S 'shooting brake' project have just been released and are getting people excited. This latest design for a Model S conversion sees a new sculpted rear end with a bold stance added to the original Tesla profile, and there's also a longer roof and a good deal of chrome around the side windows that van Roij claims adds visual length and "reduces the extra optical mass" of an estate car.

Built to the same specifications, the X-32 and the F-35 had relatively similar performance parameters. Deciding to compete on cost, Boeing designed the X-32 around a single-piece delta wing that would fit all three variants. The X-32 lacked the shaft-driven turbofan lift of the F-35, instead using the same thrust vectoring system as the AV-8 Harrier.
