    1. 95 killed in Turkey

    Turkey on Sunday mourned* the killing of at least 95 people in twin suspected suicide bombings at a peace rally* in Ankara.

    Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu declared three days of national mourning, with flags flying at half mast* across the country.

    Saturday’s bombings intensified tensions in Turkey ahead of snap elections on November 1 and as the government wages an offensive* against Kurdish militants.

    2. Syria army advances with Russian help

    Syrian government troops backed by Russian airstrikes* advanced against rebels on Sunday.

    Twelve days into Russia’s aerial* campaign, the troops were gaining ground on two fronts: in central Hama province around the Damascus-Aleppo highway, and in the northern part of regime stronghold Latakia province.

    In Hama, regime forces have taken three villages east of the highway and are now seeking to also secure control of an area to its west.

    3. Iran successfully tests new missile

    Iran announced on Sunday it had successfully tested a new domestically produced long-range* missile*.

    The defense ministry posted pictures of the launch of the missile, named Imad, on its website, but no details were given about its maximum range or other capabilities.

    The launch came months after some Iranian officials voiced concern that the Islamic republic’s recent nuclear deal with world powers could place limits on its missile program.

    4. Belarusian writer wins Nobel prize

    Belarusian writer Svetlana Alexievich won the Nobel Prize in Literature on October 8.

    Alexievich, 67, used the skills of a journalist to create literature chronicling the great tragedies of the former Soviet Union and its collapse: World War II, the Soviet war in Afghanistan, the Chernobyl nuclear disaster and the suicides that ensued from the collapse of the former Soviet Union.

    Her books have been published in 19 countries. She has also written three plays and screenplays for 21 documentary films.

    5. IS figures killed in Iraq airstrike

    Eight senior figures from Islamic State were killed in an airstrike while meeting in a town in western Iraq, but the group’s leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi did not appear to be among them.

    Iraq said on Sunday its air force had hit the meeting and had also struck a convoy* that was carrying Baghdadi to attend it. It said Baghdadi had been driven away from the convoy in an unknown condition. A Twitter site that publishes statements from Islamic State said “rumors” that an airstrike had targeted Baghdadi were false.

    6. 1st laundry-folding robot unveiled

    Households around the world are likely to breathe a sigh of relief with the invention of a Japanese robot that will not only wash and dry clothes, but also sort them, fold them and put them away neatly in the cupboard.

    The world’s first laundry bot — dubbed “the laundroid” — was created by a team of Japanese technology companies.

    A public demonstration of the automated laundry robot washing a white shirt took place for the first time in Tokyo at the 2015 Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies.
