1. Swedish Doctor Fired After Posting Anti-Migrant Comments on Social Media
A doctor in the Swedish county of Västernorrland has been fired after being accused of spreading “Nazi” messages on his social media accounts by his employers.
The doctor, who worked as a surgeon and has denied that he is a Nazi, has not been identified but was said to have been terminated from his position after the anti-migrant social media posts came to light, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports.
Only two examples of “Nazi” posts were presented by the Swedish state broadcaster including one which refers to a story from the Swedish alternative news website Friatider that reported on a Swedish politician calling for the European Union to “drive over” the objections of countries who refused to take in migrants.
In the post, the doctor wrote, “What should we do with all of these crazy feminist women? Send them to Saudi!”

3. Twitter: Algorithms were not always impartial
Twitter chief executive Jack Dorsey has told US lawmakers the company's algorithms have not always been "impartial.”
He said the platform "unfairly" reduced the visibility of 600,000 accounts, including some members of Congress.
But he was unable to immediately say whether a majority of them were Republican, Democratic or otherwise.
Mr Dorsey is being questioned by senators over allegations that Twitter censors conservative voices.
Several Republicans, including US President Donald Trump, have accused Twitter of bias, which the company denies.

5. Sweden Election: Police Investigate After Islamist Threat to Execute Populist Leader’s Family
A part-Arabic language threat to behead the leader of a Swedish anti-mass migration party leader has triggered a police investigation, just days before the nation goes to the polls in a general election.
The threat, which was reproduced in Swedish newspapers Friday, had a letterhead with the flag of the Islamic State group, and made a threat to Sweden Democrats leader Jimmie Åkesson, and his four-year-old son.
Clearly working to influence the outcome of the forthcoming Swedish national election, which will see voters going to the polls Sunday, the letter said: “We will behead you if you do not withdraw from the election by the end of this week.”

7. Ex-Muslim Christian Pastor, Refugee From Iran, Arrested for Sharing His Testimony — in Minnesota
Parsa, a pastor at Redemptive Love Ministries International in Los Angeles, Calif., traveled to Minnesota for two days to visit two different churches. He went to the Mall of America (MOA) on Saturday, August 25, with an elder from one of the churches, and with the elder's 14-year-old son. Shortly after entering the mall, he struck up a conversation with two Somali-American women.
“Our conversation was casual. At first, we were not talking about the gospel,” Parsa recalled. “They asked me, 'Are you a Muslim?' I said, 'No, I used to be a Muslim and I'm a Christian now.' I was telling them the story of how I converted.”
A passerby could not stand the discussion, however. “Another lady told the guard, 'This guy is harassing us!’” MOA security came and told Parsa to stop soliciting. “I said, 'We're not soliciting.' But we just left,” the pastor explained.
The pastor and his friends went into a coffee shop, bought a latte, and came out. Parsa told PJ Media he thought that would be the end of it. He was sorely mistaken.

9. Filing: Mohamed Noor raised red flags among psychiatrists, training officers
Former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor concerned psychiatrists and training officers about his fitness for duty long before he fatally shot Justine Ruszczyk Damond, new court records show.
Revelations about Noor's past were introduced by Hennepin County prosecutors on Wednesday in response to a motion by defense attorneys to dismiss the third-degree murder and manslaughter charges filed against him in Damond's death.
Noor was flagged by two psychiatrists during the pre-hiring evaluation in early 2015 after he exhibited an inability to handle the stress of regular police work and unwillingness to deal with people, according to the records.
The report went on to say that Noor was more likely than other police candidates to become impatient with others over minor infractions, have trouble getting along with others, to be more demanding and have a limited social support network. They showed he “reported disliking people and being around them.”

THE DEADLY Ebola outbreak could escalate after the first case of a patient dying in the city of Butembo in the Democratic Republic of Congo, experts have warned.
Conga has confirmed its first Ebola death in the eastern city of Butembo in the first urban outbreak of the virus.
