First up, tragedy at a train station. A transit train crowded with people commuting to work crashed yesterday morning in Hoboken, New Jersey.

Survivors who were aboard the train said it simply didn't slow down like it's supposed when it entered the station. It reportedly slammed into a block that marks the end of the track and then went up in the air inside the terminal apparently causing part of the roof to collapse.

Officials say one person who was standing in the platform when the train came in was killed. More than a hundred other people were injured, some of them seriously hurt. Some passengers were able to climb down on their own. Others were trapped until they could be rescued. The train's engineer is in the hospital. He's reportedly in stable condition.

Yesterday wasn't the first time has crashed at the Hoboken station. The National Transportation Safety Board will be investigating similarities between this incident and one that happened in 2011. For the time being, rail service has been suspended at the station, where more than 15,000 people board a train every weekday.

AZUZ: The election is on November 8th.

Whoever wins will take office on January 20th. And we've been running a series that explores the controversies, the conflicts and the concern associated with other world powers.

Today's report centers on Russia. In recent years, its relations with the U.S. have sunk to their lowest points since the Cold War. Part of the reason what the U.S. president calls "gaps of trust" between the two governments.

MATTHEW CHANCE, CNN SENIOR INTERNATIONAL CORRESPONDENT: There are a number of reasons why Russia could be the biggest headache for the next U.S. president.

Russia has spent billions, strengthening its armed forces. Vladimir Putin is challenging the U.S. in the skies and on the high seas, propping up the Syria regime of Bashar al-Assad with devastating air power, tipping the military balance against U.S.-backed rebels.

Putin also continues to support breakaway rebels in Eastern Ukraine, which is fueling instability on the edge of Europe. There will be peace deals to broker and sanctions to enforce if the next U.S. president is to tame the Russian bear.
