Pentagon chief Hagel out as IS war heats up

US President Barack Obama announces the resignation of US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel on November 24, 2014President Barack Obama announced the departure of US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on Monday, with the White House under fire over perceived fumbling in its response to the Islamic State threat. Rapid advances by Islamic State jihadists in Syria and Iraq forced the Pentagon chief into managing a complex campaign, and Obama concluded Hagel was not the man for the task. The 68-year-old Vietnam war veteran joined Obama at the White House to confirm his departure. "When I asked Chuck to serve as secretary of defense we were entering a significant period of transition: the drawdown in Afghanistan, the need to prepare our forces for future missions and tough fiscal choices to keep our military strong and ready," Obama said.

US jury reaches decision in Ferguson police shooting

Demonstrators march through the streets to protest the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown on November 23, 2014 in St. Louis, MissouriThe governor of the US state of Missouri urged calm on Monday ahead of a verdict on whether to indict a white police officer for shooting dead an unarmed black teenager. There is no indication yet as to whether or not officer Darren Wilson will face charges for the death of Michael Brown on August 9, 2014 in Ferguson, a suburb just outside St Louis. He could be indicted for murder in the first or second degree or for manslaughter -- or the grand jury could decide that he acted in self-defense and that there is no need for him to go on trial. The grand jury announcement will be made at the Buzz Westfall Justice Center in Clayton, Missouri, at 8:00 pm (0200 GMT Tuesday), St Louis County prosecutors said.
