A plan to spread migrants among E-U nations: European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker is calling for an expanded country-by-country migrant quota plan. The plan could cover as many as 160,000 refugees, with Germany, France and Spain taking the most, followed by Poland, the Netherlands, Romania, Belgium and Sweden. Juncker is set to unveil details of his proposal Wednesday at the European Parliament. United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres says the problem is manageable with proper management.
"I think it is clear that this is a serious crisis.  But for me it is also clear that if Europe would be properly organized, it would be a manageable crisis.  We are talking about four or five thousand people per day in a union that has five hundred and eight million people." Antonio Guterres
Turkish ground forces entered northern Iraq Tuesday for the first time since 2011, conducting what an official termed a "short-term" operation to hunt Kurdish rebels behind attacks on Turkish soldiers and police
Britain's defense minister says his nation's military would consider more airstrikes against militants in Syria if that means stopping terrorist attacks against British interests. Michael Fallon made the comments on BBC Radio, a day after Prime Minister David Cameron revealed that Britain's Royal Air Force killed three Islamic State militants, including two Britons, in an August 21 strike.
"I'm not going to rule out further action like this.  We will take this action where it is absolutely necessary, where there is no other alternative way of preventing the armed attack."

Pope Francis announced changes in the way Roman Catholic Church annulls marriages.  Josh McElwee is a correspondent for the National Catholic Reporter.
"He's streamlining it by allowing it to be free across the world, by getting rid of a lengthy second process for all annulment procedures that required a automatic review.  And in really an extraordinary move, he's giving local bishops the authority to step in in processes that seem very apparent, very clear that wasn't something--there was something wrong with the marriage to begin with..."  .
An adviser to the pope said most cases should be resolved within 45 days.
Jailed Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis was ordered released from jail after being detained for contempt of court over her refusal to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. She spoke afterward at a religious rally...
"I just want to give God the glory.  He is--his people have rallied and you are a strong people." 
A federal judge ruled that Rowan County clerk Kim Davis could be released because five of her six deputy clerks stated under oath they would comply with the Court' order. The judge ordered Davis not to interfere with the granting of same-sex marriage licenses.
