Watch: Police in California lure pig 'the size of a mini horse' home with Doritos

Deputies in California have used Doritos to lure a pig "the size of a mini horse" back home.

The pig was running around a neighbourhood when the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Office received the call on Sunday.

One of the deputies, who had responded to previous calls about the pig and knew where to take him, had Doritos in her lunch bag.

Mr Khashoggi, a columnist for the Washington Post, was last seen in public when he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 (October 3, NZT).

The sources told CNN the report is still being finalised, and that it will likely say the interrogation was carried out without clearance and that the ones who did it will be held responsible.

Saudi Arabia has maintained that Mr Khashoggi left the consulate the same day he arrived, but has given to evidence to support that.

His fiancee Katice Cengiz was waiting outside, and says she did not see him come out.

US President Donald Trump earlier spoke with Saudi Arabia's King Salman on the phone, later telling reporters that he gave a "flat denial" on the killing of the journalist.

Mr Trump said he thought "rogue killers" could be responsible for the journalist's death.

"We are going to try to get to the bottom of it very soon," he said.

Another source told CNN last week that Turkey has audio and visual evidence that Khashoggi was killed inside the consulate.

US embassy in Canberra accidently sends fake meeting invite featuring PJ-wearing cat

The United States' embassy in Canberra has apologised for a "training error" after distributing a fake meeting invitation, complete with a photo of a pyjama- wearing cat.

The email, titled "meeting", featured a photo of a tabby cat wearing a blue Cookie Monster outfit and holding a plate of choc-chip biscuits, beneath the title "cat pajama-jam".

In a clear case of misdirected correspondence last week, the email also contained a section of Latin and recipients were given the option to hit an RSVP tab.

It's unknown how widely the email, sent by the US Department of State, was distributed.

US Mission to Australia public affairs counsellor Gavin Sundwall kept his apology lighthearted.

"Sorry to disappoint those of you who were hoping to attend this 'cat pajama- jam' party, but such an event falls well outside our area of expertise," he wrote in a follow-up email two days after the original.

"It was a training error made by one of our new staff testing out our email newsletter platform."
Mr Sundwall said "strong new management controls" would be added to prevent a repeat of the mistake.

US senator releases DNA test results in response to Donald Trump's 'Pocahontas' slurs

US Senator Elizabeth Warren released the results of a DNA analysis today that she said indicated she has some Native American heritage - a direct rebuttal to US President Donald Trump, who has long mocked her ancestral claims and repeatedly referred to her as "Pocahontas".

The Massachusetts Democrat and potential 2020 presidential contender challenged Trump to make good on his pledge to donate one million US dollars to charity if she provided proof of Native American heritage, a moment that was caught on video.

Trump falsely denied ever making the offer at a summer rally in Montana, where he said he would give a million dollars to charity, "paid for by Trump," if Warren takes the test "and it shows you're an Indian."

But when asked by reporters today, Trump said, "I didn't say that."

In an interview with The Associated Press in 2012, Warren said it was "family lore" that had convinced her of Native American ancestry. She said her mother and father were forced to elope because of her mother's heritage.

Warren faces Republican Geoff Diehl, who co-chaired Trump's Massachusetts presidential campaign, in the November 6 election.
