Mexican environmental authorities seized a Bengal tiger after a man took it for a walk on a leash in a neighbourhood of the border city of Tijuana. The attorney general's office for environmental protection said the 4-month-old tiger had been living in a private home with children. The man had papers showing he recently bought the tiger, which was found to be in good health but lacking its claws. Officials say the animal was seized and placed temporarily at a local zoo because the owner did not take appropriate security and animal-welfare measures. A resident called police to complain there was a man walking a tiger on a dog leash. Authorities caught the man outside the home, which is on Lion St.


Megyn Kelly, the Fox News star who's had a contentious relationship with President-elect Donald Trump, said that she's leaving the network for NBC News, where she will host a daytime talk show and a weekend newsmagazine, as well as contribute to breaking news coverage. Kelly's departure deprives Fox News of its second-most-watched host, behind only Bill O'Reilly.

Falling in line with tradition, Bill and Hillary Clinton plan to attend Donald Trump's inauguration. It's a decision that will put Hillary Clinton on the inaugural platform as her bitter rival from the 2016 campaign assumes the office she long sought.
The Clintons announced their decision to attend the January 20 inauguration shortly after former President George W. Bush's office said he would attend with former first lady Laura Bush. Former President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, earlier said they plan to attend.


German police have searched two locations in Berlin linked to the man suspected of carrying out a deadly truck attack on a Christmas market in the capital last month.
Federal prosecutors said that police conducted one of the searches at a refugee shelter where a 26-year-old Tunisian man lived. The unnamed man allegedly knew Anis Amri, the 24-year-old Tunisian suspect who was shot dead by police in Milan days after the attack. Prosecutors say the other man was in contact with Amri until shortly before the December 19 attack. They suspect he knew about plans for the attack and may have helped him.

Medical experts who specialise in poison control say accidental poisonings from the active ingredient in the pest control substance that led to the death of four Amarillo children are not uncommon, but deaths from aluminum phosphide are rare. Fire officials say the children's father spread a commercial grade pest control pellet under the family's mobile house. Poisonous phosphine gas was released when he tried to wash away some of it away with water. Cynthia Aaron, the medical director for the Michigan Regional Poison Control Centre at Children's Hospital of Michigan, says the doctors at the centre see mostly adults with exposure issues to phosphine gas from aluminum phosphide because the pesticide is used in industrial shipping.

Amazonas state public security secretary Sergio Fontes said the transfers will begin as soon as investigations into the incidents are finished.
