BANGKOK (AP) — The Ferrari driver who allegedly slammed into a motorcycle cop, dragged him along the road and then sped away from the mangled body took just hours to find, as investigators followed a trail of brake fluid into the gated estate of one of Thailand's richest families.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions threatened on Monday to cut off U.S. Justice Department grants to cities that fail to assist federal immigration authorities, moving the Trump administration closer to a potential clash with leaders of America's largest urban centers. Sessions' statements were aimed at a dozens of cities and other local governments, including New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, that have joined a growing "sanctuary" movement aimed at shielding illegal immigrants from stepped-up deportation efforts. Police agencies in those jurisdictions have barred their officers from routinely checking on immigration status when making arrests or traffic stops.
Choosing where to buy a new iPhone isn't as simple as it might seem. Third-party stores or carriers might give you a better monetary deal than buying an iPhone from the Apple Store, but you're also going to have to deal with yearly contracts, bill credits, or the hassle of unlocking the device if you switch networks.
But all the details aside, T-Mobile is hoping that its latest offering can make the decision much simpler. As of right now, if you buy an iPhone on T-Mobile and opt for extra device insurance, you'll also get AppleCare included in the price.
The AppleCare isn't free with all new iPhones from T-Mobile, but rather it's an additional service you get with T-Mobile's Premium Device Protection. That's just an insurance program that T-Mobile offers on devices. It runs $12 per month, and offers theft and loss protection on your phone. It's a good option if you're prone to losing your device altogether, but the deductibles are high, and it doesn't offer much help with common problems like a cracked screen or water damage (thanks to those high deductibles).
So T-Mobile's new offering bundles the normal insurance, offered by Assurant, with the Apple-provided AppleCare that you know and love. Assurant keeps covering theft and loss, while AppleCare gets you different benefits like live support, cheap screens, and battery repairs.
For anyone who was already on T-Mobile's insurance, or thinking about buying a phone protected by it, this is obviously good news. You're getting more coverage for the same amount of money, and knowing it's Apple-provided coverage means you're not going to have to spend weeks arguing with a weird third-party insurance company.
By Diego Oré and Lesley Wroughton CARACAS/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Venezuela called on Monday for the suspension of an Organization of American States meeting intended to air regional concerns over the OPEC nation's economic crisis and democratic standards. The Washington-based OAS is due to debate Venezuela on Tuesday after its secretary-general, Luis Almagro, said the country should be suspended from the regional bloc if it does not hold elections. Last week, 14 nations urged elections and freedom of jailed opponents of President Nicolas Maduro's socialist government, turning up the pressure after authorities thwarted a referendum on him last year and postponed local polls.

More than 100 countries on Monday launched the first UN talks aimed at achieving a legally binding ban on atomic weapons, as Washington led an international boycott of a process it deems unrealistic. Before the conference had even begun, the US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, spoke out to reject the proposal in the light of current global security threats. "As a mom and a daughter there is nothing I want more for my family than a world with no nuclear weapons," Haley, who represents the world's largest nuclear power, said on the sidelines of the meeting.
