DUBAI, Sept 22 (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund plans to announce soon its first green debt deal, with borrowing linked to sustainability, the Public Investment Fund’s governor told a virtual event. “We will be the first sovereign wealth fund in the world to announce this green issuance,” Governor Yasir al-Rumayyan told an event on Tuesday held alongside the United Nations General Assembly. This month, PIF hired banks to be members of its ESG panel for its medium-term capital-raising strategy, IFR News reported. PIF signed a $15 billion loan with a large group of banks in March, followed a $10 billion loan it took in 2019 that was repaid last year and an $11 billion facility in 2018. Saudi Arabia will announce its “Green Initiative” next month, followed by the “Middle East Initiative”, which includes planting 50 billion trees, Rumayyan said.

The lawsuit, filed on Tuesday, said his niece and the Times had an "insidious plot" to get his records. The Trump Organization is also the center of a tax fraud investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney's office. A New York Times spokesperson told Insider: "The Times's coverage of Donald Trump's taxes helped inform citizens through meticulous reporting on a subject of overriding public interest.

From 2001 through April, about 66,000 Afghan military and police members were killed in Afghanistan, alongside 2,448 U.S. service members. The abrupt U.S. exit from Afghanistan likely forced the Afghan military to fight under unfamiliar conditions, ultimately leading to collapse — and the humanitarian catastrophe we are now witnessing. Our military allies in both countries simply do not know how to fight effectively on more conventional battlefields without U.S. support. If we are willing to maintain huge troop numbers to support our allies in Europe and East Asia, then why not even a small footprint in the Middle East?

Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi (C) attends the funeral of Egypt's former intelligence chief Omar Suleiman in Cairo July 21, 2012. Tantawi - a decorated veteran of wars against Israel in 1956, 1967 and 1973 - was defence minister for nearly 21 years. He led the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) that ruled Egypt for a year-and-a-half after the removal of long-ruling President Hosni Mubarak in February 2011. Tantawi then disappeared from view until President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi came to power after leading the army to overthrow Mursi in 2013 amid mass protests. The general command of the armed forces and cabinet also mourned the former military leader.

Taliban say no al Qaeda or ISIS in Afghanistan

REUTERS/Larry DowningSept 21 (Reuters) - Afghanistan's Taliban rulers said on Tuesday there was no evidence of Islamic State or al Qaeda militants being in the country, days after Islamic State claimed responsibility for bomb attacks in the eastern city of Jalalabad. Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid rejected accusations that al Qaeda maintained a presence in Afghanistan and repeated pledges that there would be no attacks on third countries from Afghanistan from militant movements. "We do not see anyone in Afghanistan who has anything to do with al Qaeda," he told a news conference in Kabul. The Taliban were ousted from power by U.S.-led forces in 2001 for refusing to hand over al Qaeda leaders responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks. The Afghan affiliate of Islamic State, known as Islamic State Khorasan (ISIS-K), after an old name for the region, first appeared in eastern Afghanistan in 2014 and later made inroads into other areas, particularly the north.

NAIROBI, Kenya — Sudanese authorities said they thwarted an attempted military coup on Tuesday, the latest sign of instability in an African nation battling persistent economic hardship under a fragile transitional government. “There has been a failed coup attempt,” state media said. The possibility of another coup has haunted Sudan’s transitional government since 2019 when country’s longtime dictator, Omar Hassan al-Bashir, was overthrown in a military takeover prompted by widespread popular protests. Tuesday was the first time that an attempted takeover had spilled onto the streets, said Amjad Farid, a former deputy chief of staff to Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok. The latest events underscored the urgent need to get Sudan’s military under full civilian control, he added.

Libya's unity government Prime Minister Abdulhamid Dbeibah looks on at Libya's mission to the United Nations in New York, U.S. July 16, 2021. REUTERS/Michelle NicholsTRIPOLI, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Libya's eastern-based parliament said on Tuesday it had withdrawn confidence from the unity government, though it would continue to operate as a caretaker administration. Prime Minister Abdulhamid Dbeibah's unity government was selected through a U.N.-sponsored dialogue and his government was installed by the House of Representatives in March. Dbeibeh has a mandate to unify state institutions, improve government services and prepare for national presidential and parliamentary elections. The House of Representatives, which was elected seven years ago but divided when Libya split, has not yet produced a law for a parliamentary election.

Sudan says coup thwarted, accuses Bashir loyalists

The attempted coup was planned by people inside and outside the military establishment, leading to the first arrests of those in the midst of such a plot, Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok said in a televised statement. It had been preceded by attempts to sow insecurity, especially in the east of Sudan, he said. REUTERS/Mohamed Nureldin Abdallah/File PhotoThe coup attempt points to the difficult path facing a government that has reoriented Sudan since 2019, winning Western debt relief and taking steps to normalise ties with Israel, while battling a severe economic crisis and facing down challenges from those still loyal to Bashir. They say they have foiled or detected previous coup attempts linked to factions loyal to Bashir, who was deposed by the army after months of protests against his rule. "For the first time, there are people who were arrested during their implementation of the coup," he said.

Rep. Tony Gonzalez defended US Border Patrol agents who were filmed whipping at Haitian migrants. The Texas Republican said the agents were "doing God's work fighting everything they can." Haitian migrants told reporters that they were forced to leave the camp to find water and food for themselves and their families, including many young children. White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday called the images of the Border Patrol agents whipping and yelling at barefoot migrants carrying bags of food "horrific" and "horrible." The US government has begun deporting thousands of Haitian migrants back to Haiti, even as the Haitian government pleads for a "humanitarian moratorium" on such removals.

Higher valuations have made it harder for Penn State's investment team to look for private equity managers. But higher valuations have made it tough to search for new private equity managers, according to investment professionals at billion dollar institutions. But Kapadia has found it more difficult to find newer private equity managers during the pandemic than in the past. Over the past decade, the investment team at Helmsley Charitable Trust has been building out its private capital program. Some of the bigger venture capital managers have given the endowment access to its funds, and so "we're leveraging those relationships that we have to continue to build out our private capital program."

An August 29 drone strike in Kabul killed 10 Afghan civilians, including seven children. Drone strikes conducted by the US, in Afghanistan and beyond, have often resulted in civilian casualties. Such concerns underscore the need for greater transparency from the government when it comes to drone strikes, Brooks said. Drone strikes, which the US has conducted everywhere from Somalia to Yemen, tend to occur in remote areas and far from reporters or watchdogs. The use of drone strikes in counterterrorism operations began under the Bush administration.

Biden spoke before the UN General Assembly Tuesday, where he declared the US was "not at war." But the so-called "War on Terror" continues elsewhere, including troop deployments to Iraq and Syria. "I stand here today — for the first time in 20 years the United States is not at war," Biden declared as he concluded his speech. But Biden's claim ignores ongoing US military engagements abroad, including in Iraq, Syria, and Africa, underscoring the difficulty of closing the chapter in the way Biden envisions. Beyond Iraq and Syria, US forces remained stationed in a variety of foreign countries.
