110 girls remain missing almost a week after Boko Haram extremists attacked a boarding school in northern Nigeria, the Nigerian government said Sunday, the AP reports.

  • What happened: The extremists had asked for the location of the school before carrying out the raid last week Monday, the AP reports, and many students and staff fled before the militants arrived.
  • "Many fear the girls were abducted as brides for Boko Haram extremists," the AP writes, pointing to the 2014 attack when the group abducted more than 276 girls from the Chibok boarding school in Nigeria. About 100 of those girls are still missing.

The Commission on Presidential Debates announced Wednesday that it plans to implement changes to rules for the remaining debates, after Tuesday night's head-to-head between Joe Biden and Donald Trump was practically incoherent for most of the night.

What they are saying: "Last night's debate made clear that additional structure should be added to the format of the remaining debates to ensure a more orderly discussion of the issues," the CPD said in a statement.

Biden condemns Proud Boys: "Cease and desist"

Joe Biden told reporters on Wednesday that his message to all white supremacist groups is to "cease and desist. That’s not who we are. This is not who we are as Americans."

Driving the news: President Trump was asked specifically about the far-right group Proud Boys at the debate Tuesday night, and rather than condemning them, the president said, "Proud Boys: Stand back and standby."

The blockbuster New York Times report on President Trump’s taxes reveals that the president is $421 million in debt, with more than $300 million coming due during Trump’s potential second term — and the identities of the president’s creditors remain unknown.

Why it matters: If some, or all, of this debt is held by foreign actors, it raises serious national security implications.
