WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump says "it would be very easy to apologize" to a woman who accused him of sexual assault — but he won't do anything that seems like an admission of guilt. But in an interview with Fox News, Trump says it's not possible to apologize "for an event that never took place." Several women have accused Trump recently of unwanted advances and sexual assault. Meanwhile, "Today" show host Billy Bush has been fired for being on a 2005 video in which Trump bragged about kissing and groping women.

HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. (AP) — Federal agents have joined the investigation of the firebombing of a local Republican Party office in Hillsborough, North Carolina.

The Russian and Syrian militaries say they will observe a "humanitarian pause" between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Oct. 20 to allow civilians and militants safe passage out of the city. Hundreds of civilians have been killed in recent weeks, including children.
