Manchester United's Argentinian midfielder Angel di Maria (top) is tackled by Burnley's English midfielder Dean Marney during the English Premier League match at Turf Moor in Burnley, north-west England on August 30, 2014Louis van Gaal was left searching for his first competitive win as Manchester United manager after a 0-0 draw at newly-promoted Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday. United's record signing Angel di Maria, who at £59.7 million ($98 million, 75 million euros) cost more than Burnley have spent on transfer fees in their 132-year history, made a lively debut but went off after 69 minutes. Sean Dyche's underdogs, who cost only £5 million to assemble, nevertheless matched their more illustrious opponents -- who had lost 4-0 at third-tier Milton Keynes Dons in the League Cup in mid-week -- and went closest to scoring. The visitors were fortunate not to be trailing as early as the third minute, when a free-kick conceded by Phil Jones on the edge of the area saw former United midfielder Dave Jones strike the bar.

Miners lie on the back of a truck to go to a hospital after being rescued by members of SINAPRED during a rescue operation to reach a group of miners trapped in a gold mine in the community of El Comal, in northeastern Nicaragua, on August 29, 2014Rescuers in Nicaragua raced against the clock Saturday to locate five people still missing two days after a cave-in at an unlicensed gold mine following the overnight rescue of 20 of their colleagues. "Hopefully we can find them in the coming hours," First Lady Rosario Murillo, the presidential spokeswoman, told reporters. "We give thanks to God our Lord and the Virgin Mary for having saved from death 20 artisanal miners," Murillo said, adding that President Daniel Ortega was aware of the efforts. The accident happened at a mine near the town of Bonanza, which is perched on the side of a hill in a region that is home to Nicaragua's biggest gold mines.

Supporters take part in the 'No to NATO' protest march in Newport, south Wales, Saturday, Aug. 30, 2014. Around 1,000 protesters have marched through the streets of Newport ahead of next week's NATO summit. More than 150 heads of state and ministers will attend the two-day event at Newport's Celtic Manor Resort. The event will be "uncharted territory" for police - while Wales' First Minister Carwyn Jones has said it will be "momentous" in his country's history. However, its presence in the principality - and the UK - has been met with strong opposition from a number of anti-war groups as well as left-wing organizations. A large crowd gathered outside Newport Crown Court at around midday before going on a march through the Welsh city. As well as strong Welsh contingent, protesters came from as far as Washington, Belgium, France and Ireland.

Ukrainian servicemen rest near their military equipment inside a military camp in the Donetsk region, on August 29, 2014The European Union readied a fresh wave of sanctions against Russia on Saturday, with warnings that the escalating conflict in Ukraine was putting all of Europe at risk. Fears of an wider confrontation spiralled after NATO said Russia sent troops and weapons across the border to help pro-Kremlin rebels in a new counter-offensive that has seen key towns in the southeast wrested from Kiev's control. The European Union's 28 leaders were to meet later Saturday to discuss the worsening situation, with French President Francois Hollande already indicating that leaders would "no doubt increase" their sanctions on Russia. EU Commission head Jose Manuel Barroso warned that the crisis was near a "point of no return" and said tougher measures against the Kremlin were ready.
