NEW YORK (AP) — At a New York Catholic charity dinner in which the presidential candidates usually poke fun at each other, hard jabs have been thrown. While most of the jokes were self-deprecating and relatively mild putdowns, others were stinging. Donald Trump drew boos at the Al Smith Dinner when he called rival Hillary Clinton "corrupt." He also referred to hacked emails and suggested that Clinton was "pretending" not to hate Catholics. That also drew boos.

DELAWARE, Ohio (AP) — Will Donald Trump accept the results of next month's election? Sure he will, he says -- if he wins. He told supporters in Ohio that he wants to keep open the option of challenging a questionable result -- renewing his unsubstantiated claims that the race against Hillary Clinton could be rigged against him. Trump's refusal at last night's debate to say whether he would concede to Clinton if he loses has been roundly rejected by fellow Republicans.

BARTELLA, Iraq (AP) —Elite Iraqi special forces have joined the battle to retake the city of Mosul, an Islamic State stronghold. Iraqi Kurds are also involved, along with airstrikes from the U.S. led coalition. The Pentagon says there's been an American combat death, the first since the operation began. More than 100 U.S. special operations forces are embedded with Iraqi units in the offensive, and hundreds more are playing a support role in staging bases.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a former National Security Agency contractor's theft of top secret government information was "breathtaking in its longevity and scale." According to a court filing, Harold T. Martin III took enough classified material to fill roughly 200 laptop computers. The Justice Department says it expects to bring espionage charges against Martin. He was arrested at his home in suburban Maryland.

NEW YORK (AP) — A mentally ill New York woman who was shot and killed by police this week had written an essay in 2012 expressing concerns about such shootings. Deborah Danner called for "teaching law enforcement how to deal with the mentally ill in crisis" in her essay on living with schizophrenia. Danner's lawyer says she gave the essay to him last year. The essay was first reported by The New York Times.
