VIENNA (Reuters) - Far-right Austrian presidential candidate Norbert Hofer's campaign manager conceded defeat on Sunday to former Greens leader Alexander Van der Bellen. "The bottom line is it didn't quite work out," Herbert Kickl told broadcaster ORF as initial projections showed Van der Bellen leading with a score of around 54 percent to Hofer's 46 percent. "In this case the establishment -- which pitched in once again to block, to stonewall and to prevent renewal -- has won," he said. (Reporting by Michael Shields; editing by Francois Murphy)
By Rory Carroll OAKLAND, Calif. (Reuters) - Recovery teams have found 24 bodies in the charred ruins of an Oakland, California loft building after a fire broke out during a weekend dance party, and the death toll is expected to rise, authorities said on Sunday. Sergeant Ray Kelly, a spokesman for the Alameda County Sheriff's Office, said two dozen bodies were located as authorities sifted through the debris-filled shell of the two-story building, which was used by an artists' collective. Only 20 percent of the building had been searched in the past 12 hours, said Melinda Drayton, battalion chief at the Oakland Fire Department.
