Verizon added net 136,000 retail postpaid connections on the consumer side, net 417,000 retail postpaid connections in the business segment, and net 144,000 Fios Internet additions across consumer and business lines.

Police responded with tear gas as some protesters were seen burning trash cans. They were the first such demonstrations in Italy since the start of its coronavirus outbreak eight months ago. COVID-19 cases across the country have risen seven-fold since the start of the month, jumping to 19,143 on Friday and raising fears that the pandemic is spiralling out of control. Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has said he wants to avoid a new national lockdown that would wreck the already fragile economy, but Italian law gives regional leaders leeway to establish their own curbs, and several regions are taking matters into their own hands. Campania's local authorities said on Friday (October 23) that they would impose a lockdown and urged the whole country to follow suit.

In a typically ruthless Bayern performance, the prolific Poland forward struck twice in the first half hour and added a third after halftime before substitutes Leroy Sane and Jamal Musiala completed the rout. The only disappointment for Bayern was an early injury to Alphonso Davies who had to be carried off after twisting his ankle in the fifth minute.

Fresh clashes broke out between Azerbaijan and ethnic Armenian forces over Nagorno-Karabakh - a day after talks in Washington were held in an effort to end the bloodshed. Azerbaijan's defense ministry reported conflict in and around the mountainous breakaway region - considered part of Azerbaijan but populated and controlled by ethnic Armenians. It said that some areas had come under rocket and artillery fire from inside Armenian territory. In Nagorno-Karabakh, local officials accused Azerbaijan's forces of firing missiles into residential buildings in Stepanakert, the largest city in the region, which they deny. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had separate discussions with the foreign ministers of both countries to try to put a stop the deadliest fighting in the Nagorno-Karabakh enclave in more than a quarter of a century. The collapse of two Russia-brokered ceasefires had already dimmed the prospect of a quick end to fighting - which broke out in September. Azeri forces say they have made territorial gains, including full control over the border with Iran. Armenia denies this. Nagorno-Karabakh's ethnic Armenian administration says its forces have repulsed attacks. Russian President Vladimir Putin said the month-long conflict may have killed as many as 5,000 people.

The European Union never believed Boris Johnson was serious when he threatened a no deal Brexit. Britain was back at the negotiating table less than a week after the Prime Minister declared the trade talks over and said the UK would “embrace” WTO terms. The EU is used to fiery summit walkouts during tense negotiations, which traditionally happen just before a deal is done. It clears the atmosphere and rolls the pitch for concessions. In a carefully choreographed to and fro, Brussels played along with the pantomime theatrics and met British conditions to restart the talks. Mr Johnson had said that unless a trade deal was “in sight” by the October 15 EU summit, the UK should quit negotiations. Once it was clear his deadline would be missed, the Prime Minister called the presidents of the European Commission and Council. On the eve of the summit, he told them to agree to round the clock talks or else. As EU leaders arrived in Brussels for their first in depth discussion of Brexit this year, it became clear they planned to call his bluff. A commitment to “intensified negotiations” was removed from the summit conclusion. EU leaders told the UK to make the “necessary moves” on the three major issues of fishing, level playing field and enforcement. David Frost, in a breach of protocol that infuriated EU officials, took to Twitter and let rip just as Michel Barnier began a summit press conference.
