More Than 630 Listed as “Missing” in Wildfire Aftermath…Abrams Considering Legal Challenge in Georgia…North Korea to Deport American

PARADISE, Calif. (AP) – The residents of Paradise, California, are struggling to make sense of what’s left after fire ripped through their town last week. Nearly 9,000 homes and hundreds of shops and other buildings are gone. The more than 170-year-old town of 27,000 people took just hours to go up in flames. Yet 67-year-old Tom Hurst isn’t giving up. Hurst says when talking about Paradise, “Don’t use the word ‘was,’ use the word ‘is,’ because we ain’t done, we’re just getting restarted.”

CHICO, Calif. (AP) – Fire officials in Northern California say the list of 631 people missing in the nation’s deadliest wildfire in a century probably includes people who fled the blaze and don’t know they’re being sought. Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea says he’s making that list public so that people can let authorities know they’re safe. Meanwhile, 63 people are confirmed dead and some 52,000 are displaced in shelters, motels and the homes of friends and relatives.

ATLANTA (AP) – Democrat Stacey Abrams is considering an unprecedented legal challenge in the unresolved Georgia governor’s race that could leave the state’s Supreme Court deciding whether to force another round of voting.

WASHINGTON (AP) – A U.S. court filing is raising questions about whether the Justice Department has prepared charges under seal against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Assange’s name appears in an August court filing from a federal prosecutor in Virginia, who was attempting to keep sealed a separate case. Any charges against Assange could help illuminate the question of whether Russia coordinated with the Trump campaign to sway the 2016 presidential election.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) – North Korea said Friday that it will deport an American citizen it detained for illegally entering the country recently, as the country’s state media said leader Kim Jong Un supervised a test of a newly developed high-tech weapon in an apparent bid to pressure Washington and Seoul. The conflicting announcements suggest North Korea wants to maintain the mood for dialogue with the United States as it struggles to win concessions amid stalled nuclear diplomacy.

LONDON (AP) – Londoners are expressing skepticism over the Brexit deal that has been secured by Prime Minister Theresa May but that has already led to a swathe of resignations from her government.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Lawyer Michael Avenatti is calling his arrest on domestic violence charges “complete bogus.” The attorney for porn actress Stormy Daniels was arrested near his apartment in Los Angeles.
