Salamah Pendleton, of Grand Forks, was convicted on two counts of murder in the May 2020 killings of Officer Cody Holte and Lola Moore.

In world and national news…

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — An Islamic State suicide bomber has struck a mosque packed with Shiite Muslim worshippers in northern Afghanistan. Friday’s attack killed at least 46 people and wounded dozens in the latest security challenge to the Taliban as they transition from insurgency to governance. The regional Islamic State affiliate claimed responsibility and identified the bomber as a Uygher Muslim. The claim says the attack targeted both minority Shiites and the Taliban for their purported willingness to expel Uyghers to meet demands from China. It was the deadliest attack since foreign troops left Afghanistan at the end of August.


ISLAMABAD (AP) — The United States and Pakistan have held difficult talks over the path forward in Taliban-ruled Afghanistan at a time when relations between the two countries are shaky. The meeting on Friday between Washington’s deputy secretary of state and Pakistani leaders came amid an array of unsettled issues. They include questions such as the level of future engagement with the Taliban in Afghanistan, the ongoing evacuation of foreign nationals and those who want to flee the new Taliban rulers. Another question on the agenda is who will provide funds to stave off a full economic meltdown and looming humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan.


WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. employers added just 194,000 jobs in September, a second straight tepid gain and evidence that the pandemic still has a grip on the economy with many companies struggling to fill millions of open jobs. Friday’s report from the Labor Department also showed that the unemployment rate fell sharply to 4.8% from 5.2% in August.


PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — An investigation by The Associated Press has found that a vocal group of chiropractors has become an influential force in stirring up anti-vaccine misinformation during the pandemic. Some of them have been lobbying against vaccine mandates and capitalizing on the pandemic by sowing fear and mistrust of COVID-19 vaccines. An anti-vaccine convention in Wisconsin attended by people from around the country was organized by chiropractors, and those who attended were allowed to earn continuing education credits in 10 states. Most members of the profession are pro-vaccine and focus their work on traditional efforts like spinal adjustments. But anti-vaccine chiropractors have taken an outsized and vocal role in spreading misinformation about masks and immunizations.


NEW YORK (AP) — Former President Donald Trump’s company lost more than $70 million operating his Washington D.C. hotel while in office. That is according to documents released Friday by a House committee investigating his business. The company had to inject millions into the hotel and get Deutsche Bank to delay payments on a loan tied to the property. The House Committee on Oversight and Reform said financial statements it obtained show the losses came despite $3.7 million in payments from foreign governments, business that government ethics experts say Trump should have refused because it posed conflicts of interest with his role as president.


(AP)  Top science advisers to President Joe Biden are calling for a new “bill of rights” to guard against powerful new artificial intelligence technology. The White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy on Friday launched a fact-finding mission to look at facial recognition and other biometric tools used to identify people or assess their emotional or mental states and character. Biden’s chief science adviser, Eric Lander, and the deputy director for science and society, Alondra Nelson, also published an opinion piece in Wired magazine detailing the need to develop new safeguards against faulty and harmful uses of AI that can unfairly discriminate against people or violate their privacy.


WASHINGTON (AP) — A lawyer for Steve Bannon says Bannon won’t comply with a congressional investigation into the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol because President Donald Trump is asserting executive privilege to block demands for testimony and documents. But attorney Robert Costello also said that Bannon, a former aide to Trump who had contact with him the week of the Capitol attack, is prepared to “comply with the directions of the courts” when and if they rule on the issue. The stance taken by Bannon raises the prospect that three other aides who were subpoenaed may also refuse to comply with subpoenas by the special House panel investigating the attack.
