WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump told reporters that a July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy was "congratulatory" and focused on corruption there. But then he suggested Sunday that he raised former Vice President Joe Biden and Biden's son in the call. Democrats want an investigation into whether Trump improperly used his office to try to dig up damaging information on a political rival. There is no evidence of wrongdoing by the Bidens.

LONDON (AP) — British tour company Thomas Cook has collapsed after failing to secure rescue funding, and travel bookings for its more than 600,000 global vacationers were canceled. The British government was arranging for the firm's 150,000 British customers to be repatriated but officials warned delays were inevitable. The Civil Aviation Authority said Thomas Cook's 21,000 employees would lose their jobs.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Patricia Arquette is having a "wonderful time" in her acting career, but the Emmy winner says she is still personally struggling with the death of her transgender sister. Arquette said backstage Sunday night that she has been grieving heavily since Alexis Arquette was killed at the age of 47 in 2016. Arquette made a tearful tribute to Alexis during her acceptance speech after winning best supporting actress in a limited series for her role in the Hulu series "The Act."

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — World leaders face crises on many fronts as they head into the annual meeting at the United Nations this week: a warming planet, rising tensions from the Persian Gulf to Afghanistan, and increasing nationalism, inequality and intolerance. Hanging over it all is a growing fear of military action in the wake of recent attacks on Saudi oil installations that are key to world energy supplies. On that issue all eyes will be on presidents Donald Trump of the United States and Hassan Rouhani of Iran.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Both Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden are getting a reminder of the hazards of running at the top of a crowded race to win the Democratic Iowa campaign. For Warren, it's a sign that the investments she's made in staff and personal interactions with voters have paid off. But it also means she'll increasingly be the subject of attacks from her rivals who want to blunt her rise. And Warren's growing strength underscores Biden's weaknesses among progressives.
