England's Keaton Jennings celebrates after reaching his century on the first day of the fourth Test against India in Mumbai on December 8, 2016South African-born batsman Keaton Jennings scored a stunning century on his debut as England made a solid start to their must-win fourth Test against India in Mumbai on Thursday. The left-hander -- who switched allegiance to England to boost his international career prospects -- made 112 as the visitors ended the day on 288-5 at the Wankhede Stadium. Jennings, 24, was almost caught before he had scored and took until the 12th ball to get off the mark, but when he did there was no stopping the tall opener.

By Stephanie Nebehay GENEVA (Reuters) - Nearly 150 civilians, most disabled or in need of urgent care, were evacuated overnight from a hospital in Aleppo's Old City, the first major medical evacuation from the eastern sector, the International Committee of the Red Cross said on Thursday. Eleven patients died from lack of medication or were killed in crossfire before ICRC and Syrian Arab Red Crescent teams could reach them late on Wednesday, the agency said in a statement. Marianne Gasser, head of the ICRC delegation in Syria, who is in Aleppo, said of the evacuees: "Many of them cannot move and need special attention and care." The United Nations has said for weeks that some 400 sick and wounded patients require emergency medical evacuation from east Aleppo for treatment, but it was not clear whether the 150 were among them.
