October 11, 2021: Alaska quake, U.S. and Taliban, AstraZeneca, Prince Andrew, California oil spill

1. An earthquake of magnitude 6.8 struck the Alaska Peninsula region, the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre said.

2. The United States said on Sunday the first face-to-face meeting between senior U.S. and Taliban officials since the hardline group retook power in Afghanistan was "candid and professional" and that the U.S. side reiterated that the Taliban would be judged on their actions, not just their words.

3. AstraZeneca's experimental COVID-19 drug has helped cut the risk of severe disease or death in a late-stage study, the British drug maker said, a boost to its efforts to develop coronavirus medicines beyond vaccines.

4. British police said they would be taking no further action after conducting a review of evidence relating to sex crime allegations against Queen Elizabeth's son, Prince Andrew, and the late U.S. financier Jeffrey Epstein.

5. Beaches in a southern California city that were shut because of an oil spill last week are set to reopen, authorities said in a statement.
