Live from NPR News in Washington, I am Jack Speer.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper says no US forces will assist Turkey in monitoring a so-called safe zone on the country's Syrian border. And he says 1,000 US troops will continue their withdrawal from northeast Syria. NPR's Tom Bowman has more.

Esper said in a statement he expects the Turks to abide by a hesitant agreement hammered out with the United States, and that includes protecting civilians and securing ISIS prisoners in a 20-mile safe zone along the Turkish-Syrian border. The defense secretary met with lawmakers behind closed doors yesterday and termed the meetings "very serious, candid and constructive". Democrats and Republicans have sharply criticized President Trump's decision to remove all US forces from Syria, saying it amounts to abandoning the Kurdish allies, creating a humanitarian catastrophe and fueling the spread of ISIS. Esper will travel to Brussels next week for a NATO meeting and says the allies will discuss the way forward and a defeat-ISIS campaign. Tom Bowman, NPR News, Washington.

A bomb in a mosque in eastern Afghanistan killed at least 62 people and injured 36 others. Jennifer Glasse in Kabul says the latest attack comes after a record high report of civilian casualties.

The explosion struck Friday prayers, killed and injured nearly 100 people in a mosque in eastern Afghanistan. The attack comes a day after the United Nations announced the highest monthly and quarterly civilian casualty numbers since the organization began tracking the figures ten years ago. There are more than 8,200 civilian casualties in the first nine months of this year. Reporter Jennifer Glasse in Kabul. So far there is no claim of responsibility for the attack.

Congressional Republicans are expected to vote on a resolution next week that would censure the House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, the Democrat leading impeachment inquiry into President Trump. NPR's Windsor Johnston reports Republicans are accusing Schiff of lying about aspects of the probe.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy claims Schiff misled the public about whether he knew the identity of the whistleblower who sparked the Ukraine controversy."Based upon how many times he has lied to us? to the American public? He should be censured. And I think that's a question for every single member of Congress." At one point, Schiff did wrongly imply that the committee had no contact with the whistleblower before the complaint was filed. In fact, the whistleblower had reached out to a committee aid. Schiff acknowledges that he should have been more clear but disputes GOP complaints that he has spoken to and knows the identity of the whistleblower. The censure vote is largely symbolic and unlikely to pass. Windsor Johnston, NPR News, Washington.

Winning support from the EU for his new Brexit deal may be the easy part for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Johnson has announced to sell the deal to the divided parliament. He returned to London overnight for what expected to be a busy period ahead of a meeting over the weekend.

On Wall Street today, the Dow was down 225 points.

Officials in Mexico say eight people were killed more wounded in gun battles in the Sinaloa state capital in what has been described as a failed operation to detain the son of the convicted drug cartel boss  Joaquin El Chapo Guzman. Mexican security officials say among the dead are a civilian, one member of the national guard, one prisoner and five attackers. Officials say late today troops came under fire from a house while on patrol and found Ovidio Guzman Lopez. They acknowledged it was an operation intended to arrest him and extradited him to the US to stand trial. Officials also said they were forced to pull back when heavily armed cartel gunmen unleashed fire across the city.

The Co-CEO of Oracle, Mark Hurd, has died at the age of 62. Hurd has taken a leave of absence from the software company in September citing health reasons. Oracle confirmed his death but did not give a cause. NPR's Shannon Bond reports.

Mark Hurd was a Silicon Valley veteran who led three big tech firms. Oracle's Chairman Larry Ellison says the company has lost "a brilliant and beloved leader who personally touched the lives of so many of us". For nine years, Hurd helped lead Oracle through a turbulent transition as the software industry shifted to the cloud. Hurd had been forced out of his previous job as CEO of Hewlett Packed. He was accused of sexually harassing a contractor which he denied. But an investigation reviewed that he had submitted inaccurate expense reports to cover up his interactions with the contractor. Hurd got into his stride as a salesman for the cash register company NCR in the 1980s before rising through the ranks to become CEO.
