With the right-wing populist Alternative fr Deutschland and their far-left competitors Die Linke both hovering at around 10% in the polls, a victory for Chancellor Angela Merkel is widely viewed as the most likely result.

Afghanistan is considering training and arming 20,000 civilians to defend territories where Islamic militants have been driven out, officials say, sparking fears the local forces could become another thuggish militia.

President Trump's first address to the United Nations, the world body he once said risked becoming an irrelevant salon, will be a test of his "America First" agenda on global engagement, climate change and North Korea, but one topic - Iran - looms largest. Trump's speech on Tuesday, and a series of meetings he will hold next week with foreign leaders gathering here at the annual U.N.
