Senegal will send 2,100 troops to Saudi Arabia as part of an international coalition combating Houthi rebels in neighbouring Yemen, the West African nation's foreign minister said on Monday. Senegalese President Macky Sall said, after returning from a visit to Saudi Arabia last month, he was considering a request to deploy troops in the Saudi-led coalition battling the Houthi, a Shi'ite Muslim group allied to Iran. Saudi Arabia - the world's top oil exporter and the Sunni Muslim regional rival of Iran - said Houthi forces posed a threat to its security after they captured Yemen's capital and began advancing across the country in September. "The international coalition is aiming to protect and secure the holy sites of Islam, Medina and Mecca," Senegalese Foreign Minister Mankeur Ndiaye told parliament.

General Motors said Monday that at least 97 deaths are linked to faulty ignition switches on some of its cars as the largest US automaker weighs compensation claimsGeneral Motors said Monday that at least 97 deaths are linked to faulty ignition switches on some of its cars as the largest US automaker weighs compensation claims. The GM independent compensation fund said that 45 death claims remained under review as of last Friday. The fund, administered by attorney Kenneth Feinberg, has been working through 4,342 compensation claims for fatalities and injuries linked to the faulty equipment, which can cause the ignition to unintentionally switch out of the "on" position, disabling airbags and other functions. GM knew of the ignition problem for more than a decade before it began recalling 2.6 million cars in February 2014.

Spinney drops his fine-feathered obscurity (and emerges from his garbage-can fortress as Oscar the Grouch) for an enchanting film portrait, "I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story," which celebrates the "Sesame Street" puppet master who, at age 81, continues to breathe life into a pair of the world's best-loved personalities. (AP Photo/Mark Lennihan, File)NEW YORK (AP) — He has lent body and soul to a certain 8-foot-tall 6-year-old for nearly half a century, all the while hidden from sight.
