Melbourne Cup-winning jockey Michelle Payne underwent surgery Tuesday for internal abdominal injuries after falling during a race and complaining of acute pain, racing officials said.

Toyota said it will recall nearly 1.6 million more vehicles in the United States to correct possible defects in front passenger air bag inflators made by the Japanese company Takata. The decision, which was announced Monday, was made based on recent information from both Takata and the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Toyota said in a statement. In early May, US auto safety regulators ordered Takata to recall between 35 million and 40 million airbags installed in US cars -- including in Toyotas, Hondas and other big-name vehicles -- in a push to replace dangerously explosive inflators.
