In the northern Bahamas, 2,500 people are still missing in the wake of Hurricane Dorian. The Catagory 5 storm left at least 50 people dead. The death toll is expected to rise.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he’ll annex parts of the West Bank if he is re-elected. “Saeb Erekat, the longtime chief Palestinian negotiator, warned Tuesday night that if Mr. Netanyahu manages to put through his plan, he will have ‘succeeded in burying even any chance of peace between Palestinians and Israelis,'” The New York Times reported. Israel will hold elections next week.
