Associated Press
MOSCOW, Nov 26: In other countries, you may be asked to give a push to a car stuck in the mud. In Russia, passengers in the Arctic came out of an airliner to the bitter cold to help it move to the runway.

Russian prosecutors say a Tu-134 due to fly from the Artic town of Ingarka on Tuesday to Krasnoyarsk 800 miles (nearly 1,300 kilometers) to the south got stuck when its chassis brakes got frozen. It was -52 C (-61 F) outside and the passengers, most of whom are likely to be oil workers, seemed desperate to get home.

HONG KONG, Nov 26: Hong Kong authorities cleared street barricades from a pro-democracy protest camp in the volatile Mong Kok district for a second day Wednesday after a night of clashes in which police arrested 116 people.

Prosecutor Faces New Criticism Over Ferguson Case
Associated Press
FERGUSON, Missouri, Nov 26: The prosecutor criticized the media. He talked about witness testimony that didn´t match physical evidence. And he did it at night, as a city already on edge waited to learn if a grand jury would indict a white Ferguson police officer in the shooting death of an unarmed black 18-year-old.

St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch — whose impartiality has been questioned since soon after Michael Brown was killed by Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9 — has come under renewed scrutiny since he appeared before television cameras to announce that the grand jury would not indict Wilson. A defensive McCulloch repeatedly cited what he said were inconsistencies and erroneous witness accounts. He never mentioned that Brown was unarmed.
