|Three renowned climbers feared killed in major avalanche in Canada
Three renowned mountain climbers are feared to have died after an avalanche in the Canadian Rocky Mountains.American Jess Roskelley and Austrians David Lama and Hansjorg Auer were attempting to scale a challenging route up the east face of Howse Peak in Alberta's Banff National Park, Canadian officials said.The group was last heard from on Tuesday morning, when Mr Roskelley spoke to his father, John Roskelley, himself a world-renowned climber.Search efforts began on Wednesday when the climbers failed to check in as planned, and Parks Canada said a helicopter crew saw evidence of several large-scale avalanches which had engulfed climbing equipment.Stephen Holeczi, Parks Canada’s visitor safety specialist, said there was “strong evidence” all three climbers had been killed, without going into further detail.Mr Holeczi said the avalanche that hit the group rated three on a five-point scale, roughly strong enough to destroy a small building, or uproot several trees.John Roskelley said the group had been attempting a route that was first conquered only in 2000.“It's just one of those routes where you have to have the right conditions or it turns into a nightmare. This is one of those trips where it turned into a nightmare,” he told Washington newspaper The Spokane-Review.The elder Mr Roskelley said he had climbed the 10,810-foot Howse Peak himself in the past and would travel to Canada in an attempt to help with the recovery effort.The area where the climbers were presumed to have got into trouble was “above a basin”, he said. “There must have been a lot of snow that came down and got them off the face. “When you're climbing mountains, danger is not too far away...It's terrible for my wife and I,” he said. “But it's even worse for his wife." The younger Mr Roskelley, 36, was most famous for having climbed Mount Everest in 2003 at the age of 20, then becoming the youngest American to have scaled the world’s highest peak. His father John joined him on that climb.Mr Lama, 28, was the subject of a documentary film in 2014 about his attempt to free-climb the Compressor Route on the Cerro Torre mountain in Patagonia, something never achieved before.His father was a mountain guide from Nepal, and he won numerous climbing competitions as a teenager.Mr Auer, 35, grew up near the Dolomites in Austria and was best known for completing the first ascent of the south face on Nilgiri South in Nepal.The North Face, which sponsored the trio, said in a statement that the group were “missing, and local search and rescue has assumed the worst”.“We are doing everything we can to support their families, friends and community during this difficult time,” the firm said.

|Erdogan says to keep up election challenge but Turkey must move on
President Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday his AK Party would keep up its challenge to the Istanbul election results after the main opposition candidate became mayor, but Turkey needed to end debate on the issue and focus on issues like the economy. After 17 days of objections and recounts, the secularist opposition Republican People's Party new mayor Ekrem Imamoglu took office on Wednesday, despite a pending request by the AKP to annul and repeat mayoral elections in Istanbul. When the YSK (High Election Board) says the last word, the matter will be closed for us," Erdogan said a speech at a union confederation event.

|Lou Dobbs Wonders Who Ilhan Omar Represents ‘Because It Isn’t America’
Chip Somodevilla/GettyFox Business Network host Lou Dobbs continued right-wing media’s weeklong outrage cycle over Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar’s comment about 9/11 by accusing her on Wednesday night of not representing America.For days now, Fox opinion hosts and Republican politicians have taken aim at the Muslim-American lawmaker for remarks she made last month, claiming she minimized the 9/11 terror attacks when she said Muslim-Americans were treated as second-class citizens because “some people did something.” This resulted in President Trump tweeting out an inflammatory video targeting the freshman congresswoman—a video Omar says sparked new death threats against her.Speaking to Republican strategist Amy Tarkanian on Lou Dobbs Tonight, Dobbs blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for not stripping Omar of her committee assignments over her remarks.“She won’t remove Congresswoman Omar from the foreign relations committee because why?” Dobbs wondered. “Because she thinks so little of America?!”The Trump-loving host—who occasionally gets patched into Oval Office meetings—went on to question the Minnesota lawmaker’s loyalty to the United States.“Who is she representing?!” Dobbs exclaimed. “Because it isn’t America with her thoughts and her regrettable remarks about September 11th and 3,000 victims who lost their lives that day.”Dobbs’ accusation that Omar doesn’t represent America comes on the heels of Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade saying last week that “you have to wonder if she is an American first,” remarks he somewhat walked back later. And last month, during another Omar-related controversy, Fox News host Jeanine Pirro found herself suspended for two weeks and “strongly” condemned by the network for suggesting on air that Omar didn’t believe in the Constitution because she wears a hijab.
