BEIRUT (AP) — Russia's foreign minister is rejecting allegations that his country's use of Iranian military bases for airstrikes in Syria violates any UN sanctions on Iran. Sergey Lavrov says "there has been no supply, sale or transfer of combat jets to Iran" and he insists that the Russian Air Force's presence in Iran is only about using its facilities. Yesterday, U.S. State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Russia's operation out of Iran could violate a U.N. resolution.

BERLIN (AP) — Backpacks and other large bags are banned from this year's Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany, and a fence will be erected in an effort to increase security. Bavaria was shaken last month by three attacks in a week. And a teenager in Munich killed nine people and then himself in a shooting rampage. Munich deputy mayor Josef Schmid says Oktoberfest "won't become a high-security zone, but there will be important changes that affect all guests."
