IOC begged not to ‘repeat mistake of 1936 Berlin Games’ by letting Kim Jong-un’s North Korea host 2018 Winter Olympics

- CAMPAIGNERS have urged the International Olympic Committee not to “repeat the mistake of 1936” by letting North Korea co-host events at next year’s Winter Olympics. Human rights groups said it would “send the wrong message” and encourage tyrant Kim Jong-un’s nuclear ambitions. They added it would be a propaganda boost for the brutal regime, just like when Hitler was allowed to parade swastikas and goose-stepping storm troopers at the Berlin Olympics in 1936

Germany demands costly recall of 12 million diesel cars - sources

- BERLIN: Germany's Transport Ministry is pushing carmakers to update the engine management software in up to 12 million diesel vehicles in the country, people familiar with the talks told Reuters on Monday. The move shows how German lawmakers are flexing their muscles ahead of national elections on September 24, forcing carmakers to reduce polluting nitrogen oxide emissions from diesel engines. The dangers to public health from diesel fumes became a political issue in the wake of revelations in September 2015 that Volkswagen had systematically cheated emissions tests to sell cars that produced excessive pollution

Werner brace fires Germany into semis against Mexico

- SOCHI: Timo Werner netted twice as Germany set up a Confederations Cup semi-final against Mexico with a 3-1 win on Sunday against 10-man Cameroon, who initially had the wrong player sent off.

But the video assistant referee system was again thrust into the spotlight when Cameroon defender Ernest Mabouka was sent off just past the hour for a dangerous tackle on Liverpool’s Emre Can
