  • Report: Trump asked Xi to resolve Ball arrest

Xi said he wanted to be sure that the three UCLA players are to be treated fairly and expeditiously, as said by a US official who spoke anonymously because of the sensitivity of the situation.

Initial reports suggested the players could remain in China for up to two months, depending on whether Chinese authorities made a decision to pursue an arrest, which would spark an investigation.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Are Coming To Injustice 2
Leo, Michelangelo, Raphael and Donatello will be suiting up (shelling up?) to fight the likes of Superman, Batman and more. Atom is set to launch this December 12, with the Enchantress set for release in January, and the Ninja crew in February.

According to a report in The Washington Post published Monday morning, Trump raised the arrests during his two-day state visit to Beijing.

LiAngelo Ball and fellow UCLA freshmen Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were arrested shoplifting last week at a Louis Vuitton store adjacent to the team's hotel in Hangzhou, China. They were released on bail last week, but were told to remain in Hangzhou until the legal process was completed. Trump was later notified of the UCLA players' detainment through his aides.

SBI Q2 profit Rs1,582 crore, misses estimates
Gross bad loans as a percentage of total loans stood at 9.83 percent at end-September compared with 9.97 percent at end-June. During the reporting quarter, SBI sold its shares in life insurance business SBI Life for Rs 5,436 crore.

There was no immediate response to an email sent by City News Service to a White House official seeking confirmation of the report. The source told ESPN there is surveillance footage of the players shoplifting from three stores inside a high-end retail center. The athletes were unable to play in the game, and they remain in China awaiting their fate while the rest of their team returned to the USA days ago. The president's chief of staff John Kelly has also been in contact with the players' families as well as the team's coach.

Police arrived early Tuesday morning at the Hyatt Regency in Hangzhou, where both UCLA and Georgia Tech were staying ahead of their matchup in Shanghai. He'll be fine. Everybody making it a big deal.
