YouTube removed the video for violating a policy prohibiting the posting of content that spreads coronavirus misinformation. The one that One America News Network, or OANN, posted contained claims of a guaranteed cure for the disease. OANN can reapply for the YouTube Partner Program and be readmitted if it fixes the issues that led to the suspension. The conclusion: If Covid-19 hospitalizations continue to soar, surgeries and out-patient procedures will likely slow down.

Congo warlord sentenced to life for war crimes

GOMA, Congo (Reuters) - A military court handed a life sentence on Monday to militia commander Ntabo Ntaberi Sheka for war crimes including murder, sexual slavery and child soldier recruitment in Democratic Republic of Congo. The two-year trial involving more than 300 victims is a landmark for Congolese justice, rights groups and the United Nations said. Authorities first issued a warrant for Sheka’s arrest in January 2011 but he remained at large until 2017, when he surrendered to U.N. peacekeepers. Sheka and Séraphin Zitonda, a commander from another militia, received life sentences at the trial in the city of Goma for crimes committed in Congo’s eastern province of North Kivu between 2010 and 2014. The army will continue military actions to bring perpetrators of crime to military justice, an army spokesman said.

This year’s pandemic-induced meltdown in financial markets, which prompted similarly unprecedented interventions, has sparked a comparable backlash. This March, U.S. prime money-market funds, which invest in short-term corporate and other non-government paper, lost 11% of their assets. Indeed, the prospect of such measures, ironically introduced to make money-market funds safer, may have fuelled the panic. That’s why some policymakers are once again debating whether central banks should make their backstops more permanent. And, most importantly, how would central banks charge for the support they were providing?

Governments across Europe are preparing plans to ease lockdowns in December and allow their citizens some kind of celebration over Christmas. But they are warning that this won’t be a normal festive season. If it is too loose, the danger rises of a third surge of coronavirus infections and deaths before vaccines become widely available. Across the continent, new lockdowns have succeeded in bringing down infections. On Monday, U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson said a nationwide lockdown in England will end Dec. 2 as scheduled.

BELGRADE (Reuters) - Several thousand worshippers and clergy, some without face masks, filed steadily into a Belgrade church on Saturday to pay their respects to Patriarch Irinej, the head of the Serbian Orthodox Church, who died aged 90 after contracting COVID-19. Despite a rise in COVID-19 cases, some of the faithful maintained tradition by kissing the glass-covered casket containing the Patriarch’s body, which was dressed in a gold-embroidered robe and an ornate crown. Most, however, solemnly walked past it and wore protective masks as they paid their respects to Irinej, who became the Church’s 45th patriarch a decade ago. Serbia’s government imposed tighter coronavirus controls on Saturday, such as requiring face masks to be worn outside “where distance can not be maintained” from next week. Serbia, which has a population of about seven million, has reported 110,351 COVID-19 cases and 1,140 deaths.

HONG KONG (Reuters) - Relatives and supporters of 12 Hongkongers, detained in China after trying to flee the city by speedboat, protested on Saturday on an island near the Chinese prison where they have been held virtually incommunicado for nearly three months. All had faced charges linked to the protest movement embroiling Hong Kong, including rioting and violation of the a national security law China imposed in June. Several told Reuters they want the Chinese authorities to deal with the cases in a just, fair and transparent manner. The group inflated blue and white balloons and wrote the names of the detainees on them, before releasing them into a leaden sky. A Hong Kong marine police vessel later docked on the island, with police questioning and taking down the details of several reporters present.

ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkish authorities have issued detention warrants for 101 people including lawyers and doctors as part of what they called terrorism-related investigations, a security source and state-owned Anadolu news agency said on Friday. Authorities launched the operation from the southeastern province of Diyarbakir and sought suspects across four cities and a total of 106 residential addresses, the source said. Milena Buyum, Turkey campaigner for Amnesty International, said the lawyers’ detentions clashed with recent talk of judicial reforms, which have also been mentioned by President Tayyip Erdogan. The PKK, designated a terrorist group by Turkey, the United States and European Union, has fought against the state in the southeast since 1984. That drew criticism from Turkish and international lawyers’ groups.

Plan to raise China's retirement age sparks anger

BEIJING (Reuters) - A decision by the Communist Party of China to raise the retirement age under a long-term economic and development plan has sparked anger on social media in fast-greying China. Authorities will “implement postponing the retirement age in a gradual manner”, the official Xinhua news agency said in a report this month, citing government targets by 2035. For more than four decades, China’s retirement age has remained unchanged at 60 for men and 55 for women civil servants and white-collar workers. Authorities have yet to raise the retirement age although a suggestion to do so in 2013 provoked strong public opposition. “If you travel abroad, you’ll find that people over 60 are still working, and that’s normal.”China’s retirement age is lower than in many other countries.

SYDNEY (Reuters) - South Australia’s drastic six-day coronavirus lockdown was triggered by a “lie” to contact tracers from a man who tested positive and restrictions across the state are set to be lifted much sooner than first planned, authorities said on Friday. We now know that they lied,” Marshall told reporters. Stevens would not be drawn on the man’s likely motivation for misleading contact tracers. Home to about 1.8 million people, South Australia has recorded 25 cases from the latest cluster, linked to a returned traveller from the UK. The country as a whole has been relatively successful on containing the virus with only around 95 cases currently active.
