Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu plans to meet with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in New York on Sunday, officials involved in planning the meetings told NBC News.
Netanyahu, in town for the United Nations General Assembly, has had a tense relationship with President Barack Obama, and was accused of siding with Obama's opponent, Mitt Romney, in the 2012 presidential campaign. This time around, Netanyahu has appeared wary of appearing to take sides.
But he has reason to press the candidates on issues critical to Israel in the final weeks of the campaign. His country has not been a major campaign subject, and neither Clinton nor Trump plan to visit Israel before Election Day.

Unsettling footage obtained exclusively by NBC News shows the moments leading up to the fatal police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The footage, taken by Scott's wife, does not clearly show the exact moment he was shot by police on Tuesday. Scott is seen on the ground moments after the shots were fired and surrounded by officers.
"He better not be f---ing dead, he better not be f---ing dead," Scott's wife Rakeyia Scott can be heard shouting at the police officers. "He better live, he better live!"
"He has no weapon — don't shoot him!" she is heard saying.
Police say Scott had a handgun on him and posed "an imminent, deadly threat." The family says he was not armed and did not pose a threat to the officers.
The killing of Scott, 43, sparked three nights of fiery protests and violent clashes between protesters and law enforcement. Activists and the Scott family have pressed city officials to release bodycam or dashcam footage of the fatal encounter, which reignited debates about race and policing nationwide.

It’s a good thing Doug the Pug is a U.S. resident.
If he were from the United Kingdom, he might confront an unexpected stigma this week after the British Veterinary Associaton made a statement on health defects impacting flat-faced dog breeds.
The warning targets canines of the brachycephalic variety, or dogs with little to no snout, like pugs, bulldogs, and shih tzus. According to The Guardian, Sean Wensley, president of the BVA, claimed “prospective dog owners need to consider that these dogs can suffer a range of health issues throughout their lives, from eye ulcers to painful spine abnormalities and severe breathing difficulties that can result in otherwise preventable surgery.”
But if your heart’s set on your very own Mugsy, don’t worry quite yet: domestic canine lovers claim the Brits are grossly overreacting.
President Barack Obama says recent reports of unarmed African Americans being shot by police "should be a source of concern for all Americans."
In an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America," Obama declined to address specific cases, although he noted that the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma, has invited the Justice Department to investigate the shooting there.

A wave of intense airstrikes has left nearly two million people in the Syrian city of Aleppo without water, UN officials said Saturday as activists said at least 25 more civilians had been killed.
UN children's charity, UNICEF, said this week's renewed airstrikes - which further dashed hopes of reviving last week's cease-fire - had damaged a water pumping station which supplies about 250,000 people in rebel-held eastern parts and violence is preventing repair teams from reaching it.

A 13-year-old Ohio boy fatally shot by a Columbus police officer investigating a report of an armed robbery will be laid to rest this weekend.
Attorneys for the family of Tyre King say funeral and visitation services will be held Saturday morning at a Columbus church.
Police say Officer Bryan Mason shot Tyre on Sept. 14 after the boy ran from investigators and pulled out a BB gun that looked like a real firearm.
Tyre's family has called for an independent investigation.
A triple suicide bombing against a security check point north of Baghdad on Saturday killed at least 11 members of the security forces, a police officer said.
The spokesman for the Salahuddin province police force, Col. Mohammed al-Jabouri, said three militants rammed their explosives-laden vehicles early Saturday morning into the main check point at the province's northern entrance. Al-Jabouri added that 34 other security officers were wounded.
He said the attack occurred as the local police chief and head of the provincial security committee were visiting the site. Both escaped unharmed.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but IS militants have claimed multiple similar attacks.
An attorney for the family of the black man shot by Charlotte police says newly released video recorded by the victim's wife does not prove whether the shooting was justified. Instead, Justin Bamberg tells The New York Times, the video shows "another vantage point" of the incident, in which 43-year-old Keith Lamont Scott was fatally shot. Bamberg says he hopes Charlotte police release their own videos of the shooting. They've so far refused to do so. Police Chief Kerr Putney said there's at least one video from a body camera and one from a dashboard camera. The police video could resolve wildly different accounts of the shooting. Police have said Scott refused repeated commands to drop a gun; residents say he was unarmed. It's unclear from the video shot by Scott's wife whether he had a weapon.
Less than a week after an unarmed black man was shot dead by a white police officer on a Tulsa street, prosecutors charged the officer with first-degree manslaughter, a decision that may prevent unrest in a city with a long history of tense race relations.
Officer Betty Shelby "reacted unreasonably" when she fatally shot 40-year-old Terence Crutcher on Sept. 16, prosecutors wrote in an affidavit filed with the charge Thursday. Police also quickly provided videos of the shooting to black community leaders and members of Crutcher's family before releasing them to the public. She was booked in the Tulsa County jail at 1:11 a.m. Friday and released 20 minutes later after posting $50,000 bond, according to jail records.

Demonstrators carried signs, chanted and marched in a peaceful protest hours after the family of a black man shot by police released video showing the events leading up to his death.
Friday's march through Charlotte's business district was the fourth night of demonstrations over the shooting of Keith Lamont Scott earlier in the week.
After darkness fell, dozens of people took to the streets to urge police to release dashboard and body camera video that could show more clearly what happened. Police have said Scott was armed, but witnesses say he held only a book.
Key members of the New Jersey Assembly have begun researching whether or not to bring articles of impeachment against Gov. Chris Christie, NBC 4 New York has learned.
This follows early testimony in the George Washington Bridge scandal trial, which some Assembly members believe shows the Republican governor had more knowledge of the lane closures in Fort Lee during and after that week in 2013 then he has led the public to believe.
One committee chairman who did not want to be named said "clearly obstruction of justice" would be an obvious charge against the governor.

Power surges hit Puerto Rico overnight as frustration mounted while the U.S. territory struggled to fully restore electricity more than two days after a rare, island-wide blackout caused by a power plant fire. Cheers were intermixed with groans as power came and went during the day, frustrating some who had already stocked up at the supermarket and others who complained that the surges were damaging their home appliances. Roughly 75 percent of 1.5 million homes and businesses served by the island's power company had electricity restored by late Friday, but officials warned that number would keep fluctuating.
With U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry invoking North Korea's latest nuclear explosion as a "reckless act of provocation," the U.N. Security Council on Friday approved a resolution urging quick global implementation of a treaty that would ban tests of such weapons.
Kerry said universal adoption of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty would result in a "safer, more secure, and more peaceful planet," as the United States and 18 other council members approved the resolution, with none opposed and Egypt abstaining.
The Tulsa police officer accused of manslaughter in the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man took a roundabout path toward her dream job of joining law enforcement, with stops as a convenience store clerk, an Air National Guard member and a teaching assistant. Family members and colleagues say Betty Jo Shelby, 42, was an engaged community member, a churchgoer and cool-headed enough to be tapped as a field-training officer even though she didn't join the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office until 2007 and the city's force until 2011. Despite completing de-escalation training, Shelby "reacted unreasonably" when she confronted 40-year-old Terence Crutcher on Sept. 16 as he ignored her and walked toward his SUV that had been abandoned on a street, prosecutors said in court documents. Shelby, who posted bond early Friday, faces four years to life in prison if convicted.
