Hamas leaders in Egypt for cease-fire talks involving Israel.
Hamas lends support to Abbas's UN statehood bid.  This is going to piss some people off. Obviously the Israelis and America, of course, but even some of Hamas' hardline supporters.  Because by supporting this they are officially giving up on the 1948 claim (As they should).



Vietnam refuses to stamp new Chinese passports over map.  Border authorities have instead been issuing visas on separate pieces of paper.
Protests after Dhaka factory fire kills more than 100.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford guilty, kicked from office but can run again.  The Mayor tried to say he didn't know about the Municipal Conflict of Interest act and never read the briefing books upon becoming Mayor (He also sat on the City Council for 10 years prior to this).  Rob Ford...was an embarrassment for Toronto.  I don't know how many of you paid attention to him was laughable.  So very laughable.
