"Coming up on 5 minute news. Bolsonaro not the outright winner after tight Brazil election. 125 people crushed to death at Indonesia soccer match. And Florida water level still rising in wake of hurricane Ian. It's Monday, October 3. I'm Anthony Davis. The two presidential candidates of Brazil will now face each other in a runoff vote after neither got enough support to win outright on Sunday in an election to decide if the world's fourth largest democracy will keep its far right incumbent in office. With 98.8% of the votes tallied on Sunday's election, former president Lula da Silva had 48.1% support and incumbent president J Bolsonaro had 43.5%. Brazil's election authority said the result made a second round vote between the two candidates, a mathematical certainty. Bolsonaro's administration had been marked by incendiary speech. His testing of democratic institutions, his widely criticized handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and the worst deforestation in the Amazon rainforest in 15 years. But he has built a devoted base by defending conservative values, rebuffing political correctness and modeling himself on the fascistic behavior and policies of Donald Trump. Police firing tear gas after an Indonesian soccer match in an attempt to stop violence triggered a disastrous crush of fans making a panicked chaotic run for the exits, leaving at least a 125 people dead, most of them trampled upon or suffocated. Attention immediately focused on police crowd control measures at Saturday night's match between host arima FC of east Java's malang city and persevered surabaya, witnesses described officers beating them with sticks and shields before shooting tear gas canisters directly into the crowds. It was among the deadliest disasters ever at a sporting event. President joko widodo ordered an investigation of security procedures, and the president of FIFA called the deaths, a dark day for all involved in football and a tragedy beyond comprehension. While FIFA has no control over domestic games, it has advised against the use of tear gas at soccer stadiums. Brawls are common among rival Indonesian soccer fans, so much so that the organizer had banned persevere supporters from a remus stadium. But violence still broke out and when the home team lost three two and some of the 42,000 arima fans, known as aramia through bottles and other objects at players and soccer officials. At least 5 police vehicles were toppled and set ablaze outside the stadium, riot police responded by firing tear gas, including toward the stadium's stands, causing panic among the crowd. Others suffocated and were trampled as hundreds of people ran to the exit to avoid the tear gas. In the chaos, 34 died at the stadium, including two officers, and some reports include children among the casualties. The national police chief said the death toll had been revised to a 125 from a 174 after authorities found some of the victims were counted twice. More than a hundred were receiving intensive treatment in 8 hospitals, 11 of them, in critical condition. Indonesia's soccer association known as pssi, suspended the premier soccer league Liga one indefinitely in light of the tragedy, and banned a reimer from hosting soccer matches for the remainder of the season. With the death toll from hurricane Ian rising and hundreds of thousands of people without power in Florida and the Carolinas, U.S. officials vowed on Sunday to unleash a massive amount of federal disaster aid as crews scrambled to rescue people stranded by the storm. Days after Ian tore through Central Florida, carving a deadly path of destruction into the Carolinas, water levels continued rising in some flooded areas inundating homes and streets that were possible just a day or two earlier. Florida governor Ron DeSantis was in Arcadia on Sunday afternoon, about 30 miles inland from where Ian made landfall, the rural area didn't get the storm surge experienced by coastal communities, but standing water from floods remained four days after the storm. This is such a big storm brought so much water that you are having basically what's been a 500 year flood event to Santos said. At least 68 people have been confirmed dead, 61 in Florida, four in North Carolina and three in Cuba, nearly 720,000 homes and businesses in Florida were still without electricity on Sunday, down from a peak of 2.6 million. The weakened storm continued to wreak havoc as it drifted north with the remnants forming a northeaster that is expected to dump rain on parts of Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland and southern Pennsylvania. In Virginia, rainfall on the already inundated cheapskate bay could lead to the most significant tidal flooding event in the Hampton roads region of the last 15 years. A handful of coastal Virginia school districts canceled classes today and local officials urged residents to prepare. Diane griswell administrator of the federal emergency management agency said the federal government is focusing first on victims in Florida, which took the brunt of one of the strongest storms to make landfall in the United States. President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden planned to visit Florida on Wednesday.

"Show. Coming up on 5 minute news. Court says Trump's AG wrongly withheld facts of Russia investigation. Lindsey Graham wins reprieve from testifying in Georgia election probe. And car bomb kills daughter of prominent Russian propagandist. It's Monday, August 22. I'm Anthony Davis. The Justice Department under former attorney general William Barr, improperly withheld portions of an internal memo bar sighted in announcing that then president Donald Trump had not obstructed justice in the Russia investigation, a federal appeals panel has said. At issue in the case is a March 24 2019 memorandum from the head of the Justice Department's office of legal counsel and another senior department official that was prepared for bar to evaluate whether evidence in special counsel Robert Muller's investigation could support prosecution of the president for obstruction of justice, Barr has said he looked to that opinion in concluding that Trump did not illegally obstruct the Russia probe, which was an investigation of whether his campaign had colluded with Russia to tip the 2016 election. A year later, a federal judge sharply rebuked Barr's handling of the Mueller report, saying Barr had made misleading public statements to spin the investigation's findings in favor of Trump and had shown a lack of candor. The appeals court decision said the internal Justice Department memo noted that Muller had declined to accuse president Trump of obstructing justice specifically of obstructing justice, but had also declined to exonerate him. The internal memo said the reports failure to take a definitive position could be read to imply an accusation against president Trump if released to the public the court wrote. Sitting presidents are generally protected from criminal charges on grounds it would undermine their ability to perform the office's constitutional duties. The Justice Department, like Muller, took as a given that the constitution would bar the prosecution of a sitting president. The appeals court wrote, which meant the decision that Trump wouldn't be charged had already been made and couldn't be shielded from public release. An appeals court put on hold U.S. senator Lindsey Graham's scheduled testimony for Tuesday before a grand jury in Georgia, probing efforts by Donald Trump to overturn the former president's 2020 election defeat, with the case returning to a lower court for another look. A federal judge on Monday had rejected Graham's challenge to the subpoena to testify before the grand jury. Graham, a Republican, had argued his position as a U.S. senator, provided him immunity from having to appear before the investigative panel. Sunday's order by the Atlanta based 11th U.S. circuit Court of Appeals comes as a temporary reprieve for Graham, who otherwise would have had to testify tomorrow. Testimony from Graham, a close ally of Trump, could shed further light on the coordinated effort by Trump's team to reverse the 2020 results. The appeals court gave Graham a new chance to challenge the subpoena based on protections for lawmakers under the U.S. Constitution's speech or debate clause that provision can protect lawmakers from being compelled to discuss legislative activity. The grand jury wants to question Graham about at least two phone calls he made to Georgia Secretary of State Brad raffensperger and his staff in the weeks following the November 2020 election in which Graham explored the possibility of reexamining absentee ballots according to prosecutors. The Georgia probe is one among several legal troubles faced by the former president. The special grand jury in Fulton county, Georgia, is undertaking a criminal investigation into alleged wrongdoing. Trump was recorded in a January 2nd phone call, pressuring a top state official to find enough votes to overturn his loss to Biden in the state. The daughter of an influential Russian political theorist often referred to as Putin's brain, was killed in a car bombing on the outskirts of Moscow, authorities said on Sunday. The Moscow branch of the Russian investigative committee said preliminary information indicated 29 year old TV commentator Dario dugue was killed by an explosive, planted in the SUV she was driving on Saturday night. There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but the bloodshed gave rise to suspicions that the intended target was her father, Alexander dugan, a nationalist philosopher and writer. Dugan is a prominent proponent of the Russian world concept, a spiritual and political ideology that emphasizes traditional values. The restoration of Russia's power and the unity of all ethnic Russians throughout the world. He's also a vehement supporter of Russian president Vladimir Putin's move, sending troops into Ukraine. The explosion took place as his daughter was returning from a cultural festival she had attended with him. Russian media reports cited witnesses as saying the SUV belonged to dugan and that he had decided at the last minute to travel in another vehicle. The car bombing, unusual for Moscow, is likely to aggravate tensions between Russia and Ukraine, while dugan's exact ties to Putin are unclear, the Kremlin frequently echoes rhetoric from his writings and appearances on Russian state TV. Dugan herself was sanctioned by the United States in March for her work as chief editor of united world international, a website that the U.S. described as a disinformation source. The sanctions announced sighted a united world article this year that contended Ukraine would perish if it were admitted to NATO.
