YPRES, Belgium (AP) — Dismembered soldiers sucked into cesspools of mud. Shattered tree trunks and the waft of poison gas hovering around the wounded waiting for their fates on the scarred soil of Flanders Fields.

The Third Battle of Ypres, fought in western Belgium a century ago, was as bad as World War I would get. Ask anyone remotely linked to the half a million soldiers estimated to have been killed or wounded during the 100-day battle and one name keeps coming back: Passchendaele, now as grim a symbol as any field of war ever remembered.

BERLIN (AP) — A German official says the man who fatally stabbed one person and wounded several others in Hamburg was known to authorities as an Islamic radical but also was psychologically unstable.

The suspect, a 26-year-old born in the United Arab Emirates, was quickly overwhelmed by passers-by and arrested after Friday's attack in Hamburg's Barmbek district.

Hamburg's state interior minister, Andy Grote, said the man — whose asylum claim had been rejected — was known to have been radicalized but hadn't been considered dangerous.

Grote said the man's motive remained unclear Saturday, but he is believed to have acted alone and not been linked to an extremist network.

The man stabbed at least five people be

ISTANBUL (AP) — A Turkish court has released seven staff members of an opposition newspaper from jail pending the outcome of their trial on charges of allegedly aiding terror organizations.

Cartoonist Musa Kart and six other Cumhuriyet staff members were released from a prison on the outskirts of Istanbul early Saturday. They had been in custody for the past nine months.

Their families and supporters embraced them outside the prison.

Kart told reporters the indictment linking Cumhuriyet, a newspaper staunchly opposed to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, to outlawed organizations had collapsed.

Kart says being let out didn't bring the released staff much happiness because four other Cumhuriyet journalists remain be

The report said the confrontation took place Friday afternoon and the U.S. navy ships left the area following the encounter.

Last month, Abbas dispelled rumors he had suffered a stroke.

ISLAMABAD (AP) — The ruling party of deposed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will choose his successor Saturday, a day after Pakistan's Supreme Court removed the premier from office after finding that he and his family concealed their assets, officials said.

The move comes amid a serious political crisis that has gripped Pakistan, with constitutional experts and lawmakers wondering who is running the government after Sharif's disqualification.

"Unfortunately, we are without a prime minister. We are without a government," Raja Zafarul Haq, a senior lawmaker from the ruling Pakistan Muslim League party, told The Associated Press. The party was meeting Saturday to discuss a potential successor.
