A man opened fire in a synagogue while shouting anti-Semitic slurs. Another is accused of killing two African-Americans after trying unsuccessfully to enter a predominantly black church. And a third, who referred to himself as a white supremacist, allegedly mailed 14 pipe bombs to critics of President Trump. It was 72 hate-filled hours in America. Here's hoping this week is better.

• A caravan of migrants treks slowly through Mexico toward the United States as a second one prepares to leave from El Salvador.

• Some 50,000 NATO troops conduct a readiness exercise in Norway amid Russia's increased submarine presence in the North Atlantic and Arctic oceans.

• It's also candidates' last push ahead of the November 6 midterms. A rally against voter suppression is set for today in Georgia, where absentee ballot rejections have sparked an outcry.

Brazilians head to the polls for a presidential runoff in their country's most divisive race since its military dictatorship ended in the 1980s. The front-runner is Jair Bolsonaro, who's known for making racist, sexist and homophobic remarks and who was stabbed in the abdomen while campaigning last month. He faces Fernando Haddad, who's backed by supporters of former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. Lula da Silva was barred from running while he serves a 12-year sentence for corruption and money laundering.

Formula One heads south to Mexico City for a showdown at the historic Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez. All eyes will be on Lewis Hamilton as he aims for his fifth world championship. Grand prix coverage begins at 2:30 p.m. ET on ABC.

TUESDAY

• Your holiday shopping list might get longer when Apple is expected to announce new iPads, Macs and perhaps second-generation AirPods.

WEDNESDAY

• It's Halloween. Still don't have a Halloween costume? If you have a cardboard box, you can whip one up by the time trick-or-treating gets underway.

• The fate of DACA recipients could be headed to the US Supreme Court. The Justice Department warned a federal appeals court that if judges can't rule by this date, it would ask the high court to weigh in this term on its push to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which protects from deportation some 700,000 young, undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children.

FRIDAY

India may impose tariffs on US goods in response to US import tariffs on steel and aluminum. India has twice delayed the move, which could affect 30 products, including almonds, walnuts and apples, worth $241 million. The decision comes as Trump has rattled strong US-India ties with tariffs and pressure to halt oil imports from Iran.
