Former President Pinera Re-elected in Chile
Conservative billionaire Sebastian Pinera has easily won another shot at the Chilean presidency in Sunday's runoff elections.
Electoral authorities said Pinera, who was president from 2010 to 2014, had 55 percent of the vote, with 98 percent of ballots counted.
His rival, center-left Sen. Alejandro Guillier, conceded his own "tough defeat" after receiving 45 percent.
It is a marked move to the right for the country, which is currently led by socialist President Michelle Bachelet. She had backed Guillier.
Pinera will lead the South American nation — the world's top copper producer — for four years starting in March.
He has proposed slashing taxes on businesses in an effort to revive growth, and has vowed to launch a $14 billion, four-year spending plan that includes fresh investments in infrastructure.
Power Restored after Outage Disrupted Atlanta
Power has been restored at the international airport in the southern U.S. city of Atlanta, after an outage Sunday disrupted all flights in and out of the busy hub.
Georgia Power said it believed the problems were linked to a fire that caused extensive damage to one of its underground electrical facilities as well as circuit cables that served the airport.
Hartsfield-Jackson Airport was without power for about 10 hours before crews restored power for what Georgia Power called "all essential" services, including concourses and flight operations.
Delta Airlines has its headquarters in Atlanta and canceled about 900 flights on Sunday and another 300 on Monday.
The airport is one of the busiest in the world, with more than 2,500 daily arrivals and departures, bringing more than 250,000 passengers through the airport on an average day.
