    Minutes before the final Florida gubernatorial debate was set to air Tuesday evening, Wolf Blitzer broke into CNN’s live coverage to play newly-released audio of Bristol Palin recounting the alleged drunken brawl that took place between members of the Palin family and others at an Alaska snowmobile party last month. CNN bleeped the numerous curse words in Palin’s statement to police, but according to the transcript posted to the website, here is what the uncensored version appears to be: “Some lady with gray hair, who wants to push my 20-year-old sister — I’m going to defend my sister, she’s 20...

    Taiwanese lawmakers exchanged punches and threw water at each other Friday ahead of an expected vote that would authorize a referendum on whether to finish a fourth nuclear power plant on the densely populated island of 23 million people. Nuclear power has long been a contentious issue in Taiwan and became more so following the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan in 2011. While many Taiwanese consider nuclear power generation an unacceptable safety risk for the earthquake-prone island, economic analyses suggest disruptive power shortages are inevitable if the fourth plant is not completed.

The fight ended only after Palestinian police, bending their heads to squeeze through the church’s low ‘door of humility’, rushed in with batons to restore order. The row is believed to have begun after a clergyman of one...

    A soccer match played Friday between the Jordanian league's Al-Faisaly and Al-Wihdat ended in a 1:0 victory for Al-Wihdat.
