Ceasefire expires

What's next in Ukraine? A 10-day ceasefire in eastern Ukraine expired Monday night, with no immediate word from the country's president on whether he would extend it, and no sign that the pro-Moscow separatists had met his demands to ease the violence. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko discussed the situation in a phone call with leaders of Russia, Germany and France. He repeatedly said the rebels had not fulfilled the conditions of the ceasefire.

We are getting a clearer picture of how much help the U.S. is giving Nigeria to help in the search for almost 300 school girls kidnapped by terror group Boko Haram. The Pentagon says 16 DoD personnel are a part of a government-wide team of 30. The team includes planners and advisers already in Nigeria that have been redirected to assist the government. France, Benin, Chad, Cameroon and Niger, as well as representatives of Britain and the EU are all helping in the search.

French Raise Questions with Controversial Sale to Russia

France has agreed to sell a sophisticated new weapon to Russia. As a result Pentagon officials are worried the Mistral class warship will improve Russia's ability to threaten Georgia and other Eastern European allies. A Pentagon spokesman says U.S. allies in Eastern Europe are nervous about it. As Secretary of Defense Robert Gates visits officials in France, a question looms. Why did the French do that considering they are a member of NATO and Russia is not.

Inquiry in Guinea

The U.N. set up an international inquiry into a bloody crackdown on protesters in Guinea last month. Gunmen used live rounds against anti-government protesters on Sept. 28 in a stadium in Guinea's capital Conakry. The violence killed 157 people and wounded more than a thousand, according to a local rights group. Tensions after the violence have led France to advise its citizens to leave the West African country and the United States to withdraw diplomats' families.

Scaling back contractors

The top U.S. and NATO commander in Afghanistan said Friday that the coalition depends too much on private-sector contractors, and insisted his forces are keeping close watch on the flow of Taliban fighters who are training in Iran. Gen. Stanley McChrystal, during a four-day visit to France, said the coalition in Afghanistan has become too dependent on private contractors in the effort to stabilize the country.
