A 96-year-old German woman who was caught shortly after going on the run ahead of a court hearing last month on charges of committing war crimes during World War Two appeared before a judge on Tuesday in the northern town of Itzehoe. Irmgard Furchner, accused of having contributed as an 18-year-old to the murder of 11,412 people when she was a typist at the Stutthof concentration camp between 1943 and 1945, was taken into the sparse courtroom in a wheelchair. Between 1939 and 1945 some 65,000 people died of starvation and disease or in the gas chamber at the concentration camp near Gdansk, in today's Poland.

Afghanistan's economy is set to contract up to 30% this year and this is likely to further fuel a refugee crisis that will impact neighbouring countries, Turkey and Europe, the International Monetary Fund said on Tuesday. With non-humanitarian aid halted and foreign assets largely frozen after the Taliban seized power in August, Afghanistan’s aid-reliant economy "faces severe fiscal and balance-of-payments crises", it said in its regional economic outlook update. "The resulting drop in living standards threatens to push millions into poverty and could lead to a humanitarian crisis."
Investors will be closely watching Tesla's quarterly results on Wednesday for indications of its performance in China, where the electric carmaker has posted robust sales in the face of negative publicity and a host of new domestic competitors. The company headed by billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk is expected to report a jump in revenue driven by record global deliveries in the July to September period. The upside could come from Tesla's Shanghai factory, which has surpassed the company's factory in Fremont, California in terms of production, and has cut costs with the use of more Chinese parts including batteries.
Eddie Jones described his squad selection for the Autumn Nations Series next month as “a line in the sand” — and England’s head coach is not wrong. A core part of England’s squad over the past five to six years has now gone, even if Jones insists the door is not completely closed to them.

Former shadow home secretary Diane Abbott has backed a boycott by schools of the Museum of the Home in Shoreditch in a row over its links to slavery. The building, previously known as the Geffrye Museum, is based in former almshouses built with money from Sir Robert Geffrye who made his fortune in the slave trade and whose statue stands outside. The MP for nearby Hackney North and Stoke Newington said “we should not be honouring the slavers and colonialists”.

There are no shortage of successful investors, but few can hold a candle to billionaire Warren Buffett's track record. Since the Oracle of Omaha took over as CEO of Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK.A)(NYSE: BRK.B) in 1965, he's overseen the creation of more than $600 billion in shareholder value and delivered an average annual return for the company's Class A shares (BRK.A) of 20%. In other words, when Buffett buys or sells a stock, Wall Street and investors tend to pay close attention.
