Russian rockets have rained down on a small town in eastern Ukraine for the second time in a week, killing a newborn boy and destroying the municipal hospital. A doctor was critically injured in the overnight attack Wednesday. Six days ago, according to the mayor, 11 people died when a Russian rocket hit an apartment building. Kyrilo, the baby boy killed in the latest rocket attack, was born two days ago. He and his mother were supposed to be discharged Wednesday. Russia has targeted hospitals repeatedly since the war began Feb. 24, including a deadly airstrike in March on a maternity ward in the city of Mariupol that killed a woman and her unborn child.

Reformist opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim is close to becoming Malaysia’s new prime minister after a political party agreed to support a unity government following inconclusive elections. Any agreement must be approved by Malaysia’s king. Last Saturday’s election deadlock led to a hung parliament that renewed a leadership crisis in Malaysia, which has had three prime ministers since 2018. Anwar’s multiethnic alliance has 82 parliamentary seats, short of the 112 needed for a majority. Former Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin’s Malay-centric bloc won 73 seats. The United Malays National Organization said it will now support a unity government that is not led by Muhyiddin. If all 30 lawmakers from UMNO’s alliance support Anwar, he will secure a majority to form a government.
The head of Brazil’s electoral authority has rejected the request from President Jair Bolsonaro and his party to annul ballots cast on most electronic voting machines, which would have overturned the Oct. 30 election. He also established a fine of 23 million reais ($4.3 million) for bad faith litigation. De Moraes had issued a prior ruling that conditioned analysis of the request on the presentation of an amended report to include results from the first electoral round on Oct. 2, in which Bolsonaro’s won more seats in both congressional houses than any other, and he established a 24-hour deadline. Earlier Wednesday, Costa and de Bessa said there would be no amended report.
Alaska Republican U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski has won reelection, defeating a fellow Republican who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump. Murkowski beat Kelly Tshibaka in the Nov. 8 ranked choice election. The race also included Democrat Pat Chesbro and Republican Buzz Kelley, who suspended his campaign after the primary and endorsed Tshibaka. Murkowski was the only Senate Republican who voted to convict Trump at his impeachment trial last year who was on the ballot this year. Trump was not convicted. But her vote was a sore point raised by Trump, who had vowed to campaign against her. Murkowski paid little attention to Trump during a campaign in which she emphasized a willingness to work across party lines and focused on her record and seniority.
Democrat Mary Peltola wins reelection to U.S. House in Alaska’s at-large Congressional District.
Alaska U.S. Rep. Mary Peltola has been elected to a full term in the House. The win comes months after the Democrat won a special election to the seat following the death of longtime Republican Rep. Don Young in March. Peltola defeated Republicans Sarah Palin and Nick Begich and Libertarian Chris Bye in the Nov. 8 election to win the full two-year term. Peltola, who is Yup’ik, with her win in the August special election became the first Alaska Native to serve in Congress and first woman to hold Alaska’s only House seat. Results of the ranked vote Nov. 8 election were announced Wednesday.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Gov. Mike Dunleavy has won reelection and will serve as Alaska governor for a second four-year term.
All Times EST
Alaska Republican Gov. Mike Dunleavy has won reelection, becoming the first governor in the state to win back-to-back terms since 1998. Dunleavy bested a field that included former Gov. Bill Walker, an independent; Democrat Les Gara, a former state lawmaker; and Republican Charlie Pierce, a former borough mayor who is being sued by a woman who says he sexually harassed her. Dunleavy had over 50% of the vote after final vote tallies were released Wednesday, and he avoided ranked choice voting in the general election to win a second term. Dunleavy’s first term in office was marked early on by tensions with lawmakers and a recall effort fueled by public anger over budget vetoes and cuts he proposed. Recall backers abandoned their push last year.

A University of New Mexico student has been released from jail after being accused of plotting with friends to confront a basketball player from a rival university. That plot resulted in the shooting death of one UNM student and the wounding of the player on the Albuquerque campus. Court documents say the UNM students planned to get back at the player for his role in a brawl during a football game earlier this fall. New Mexico State University officials confirmed Wednesday that the player is still a member of the team, despite violating the student code of conduct by taking a gun with him on a team road trip.

The powerful sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has made insult-laden threats against South Korea for considering unliteral sanctions on the North. Kim Yo Jong called the South’s new president and his government “idiots” and “a running wild dog gnawing on a bone given by the U.S.” Her diatribe Thursday came two days after South Korea’s Foreign Ministry said it was reviewing additional sanctions on North Korea over its recent barrage of missile tests. Last month, South Korea imposed its first unilateral sanctions on North Korea in five years, but those were related to near-nonexistent financial dealings between the rivals and are largely symbolic. Fresh sanctions from the U.N. Security Council are unlikely because China and Russia oppose them.
PHILADELPHIA — Doug Mastriano lost by a lot.
The Portland City Auditor has reversed its determination that Rene Gonzalez’s city council campaign violated campaign finance limits by accepting a subsidized monthly rent for office space and parking spots owned by a campaign supporter. The Oregonian/OregonLive reports the announcement comes a month after Oregon administrative law Judge Joe L. Allen revoked a $77,000 fine the city issued against Gonzalez’ campaign. In his opinion, Allen said the discounted office space did not surpass the fair market value of the property and therefore did not qualify as an unreported campaign contribution. The city must pay thousands of dollars it withheld from Gonzalez, who beat incumbent Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty in the city council race.
The holiday travel rush is already on, and it could spread out over more days than usual this year. Travel experts say the ability of many people to work remotely is letting them take off early for Thanksgiving or return home later. Crowds are expected to rival those of 2019, the last Thanksgiving before the pandemic. The Transportation Security Administration screened nearly 2.3 million travelers on Tuesday, down from more than 2.4 million screened the Tuesday before Thanksgiving in 2019 but the numbers were higher on Monday.  AAA predicts that nearly 55 million people in the U.S. will travel at least 50 miles from home this week, an increase over last year and only 2% less than in 2019.
