“Protests are continuing in India, demanding the government take action to prevent and protect women after the death of a victim of gang rape. The 23-year-old's body was cremated after returning Singapore has been treated for injuries.”

Russian investigators have blamed a defective brake system for a Moscow plane crash that killed four crew members Saturday. Euronews explains.

A suicide bomb attack near a bus convoy killed 19 Shia Muslim pilgrims and injured 20 others in southwest Pakistan on Sunday.

With just two days left, U.S. lawmakers are still struggling to put together a last-minute bipartisan deal ahead of Monday's midnight deadline for the fiscal cliff. BBC has more.

“U.S. Congress will meet today in a last-ditch effort to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff.
