By Mary Wisniewski CHICAGO (Reuters) - Chicago's police chief was ousted on Tuesday after days of protest over a white officer's shooting of a black teenager 16 times and the department's refusal to release a video of the killing for more than a year.

Emanuel also said he was creating a new police accountability task force.

Heavy flooding causes chaos in southern India state
Widespread flooding across the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu has driven more than 200,000 people from their homes, shut down factories and paralyzed the airport in the state capital Chennai, government officials said on Wednesday. The floods, caused by heavy rain over the past two weeks, swilled over the runway of the international airport in India's fourth-largest city, emergency officials said, and about 25 flights were canceled as of Wednesday morning. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has ordered the rescue teams and paramilitary forces to launch an extensive relief and rescue operation.
NEW YORK/SAN JUAN (Reuters) - Puerto Rico made a crucial debt payment on Tuesday but warned that its deteriorating finances could trigger future defaults, as the governor granted the U.S. territory power to take revenues from public agencies. There had been speculation Puerto Rico would default on all or part of the $355 million notes issued by its financing arm, the Government Development Bank. While Puerto Rico first defaulted in August, failure to make the payment on Tuesday would have been more significant because part of that debt was protected by the commonwealth's constitution.
