Relatives of Bolivian crew member Sisy Arias, who died when the plane carrying Brazilian soccer team Chapecoense crashed in Colombia, react as the bodies of victims arrive at Viru Viru airport in Santa CruzBy Brad Haynes CHAPECO, Brazil (Reuters) - Brazil's president on Saturday bestowed honors on the victims of an air crash as Air Force troops unloaded 50 coffins flown in overnight from Colombia, site of the disaster this week that killed 71 people and wiped out a soccer team. The Brazilian town of Chapeco, its streets wet with rain and buildings draped in the green of its Chapecoense club, turned out to receive the bodies and attend a wake at a local stadium for members of the team, which ascended from minor leagues in recent years to reach the championship of a South American tournament. "This event, as you know, shook the whole country," President Michel Temer told reporters before making the short drive from the airfield to the rain-soaked stadium.

A general view shows rising smoke after strikes on Aleppo cityBy Tom Perry, Isla Binnie and Vladimir Soldatkin BEIRUT/ROME/MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia said on Saturday it was ready for talks with the United States about a withdrawal of all Syrian rebels from eastern Aleppo where advances by the Russian-backed Syrian army and its allies threaten to deal a crushing blow to the rebellion. An official with an Aleppo rebel group accused Russia of backtracking on ideas agreed at talks in Turkey that would have led to a ceasefire, and said rebel commanders had vowed to fight on even as they face intense bombardment and ground assaults. Russia has acknowledged contacts with the rebels but given no details of the talks in Turkey.

Iraqi people flee the Islamic State stronghold of Mosul in al-Samah neighborhood IraqBy Ahmed Rasheed BAGHDAD (Reuters) - No food or fuel has reached Mosul in nearly a week and the onset of rain and cold weather threatens a tough winter for more than a million people still in Islamic State-held areas of the city, residents said on Saturday. Iraqi troops waging a six-week-old offensive against the militants controlling Mosul have advanced into eastern city districts, while other forces have sealed Mosul's southern and northern approaches and 10 days ago blocked the road west. A trader in Mosul, speaking by telephone, said no new food or fuel supplies had reached the city since Sunday.
