 The presidential candidates are heading into their third and final debate in what's become a tight race just weeks before the election. They will spar at Lynn University in Boca Raton Florida. This time, seated across from moderator Bob Schieffer of CBS, NPR's Ron Elving says tonight's exchange is supposed to focus on foreign policy although don't be surprised if the economy comes up. 

The debate is supposed to be about foreign policy and there are six subject areas chosen by Mr. Schieffer that are all about foreign policy mostly about the Middle East. But there is no guarantee that the candidates will not take opportunities that arise to bring in other issues to talk, for example about the economy, or to talk about some of the issues that they think differentiate1 them. NPR's Ron Elving.
NPR's Craig Windham reports one topic expected to surface tonight is last month's deadly attack on the U.S. consulate2 in Benghazi, Libya.
Romney is expected to renew his criticism of the administration's handling of the attack that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans. Dan Senor is an advisor3 to the Romney campaign.
We need to figure out what happened, this can't happen again. We need to assure our diplomats4 and other officials in the U.S. government when they go overseas that they are going to have the proper security. 
But Stephanie Cutter, President Obama's Deputy Campaign Manager says Mr. Obama has been clear and forceful in his response to the attack.
He initiated5 an investigation6 to get to the bottom of it, of what happened and how we keep our embassy safe all over the country. That investigation is running its course. It's important that we don't politicize it. 
Both Cutter and Senor were interviewed on NBC's Today show. Craig Windham, NPR News.
The Lebanese military is trying to restore order in the aftermath of the assassination7 of an intelligence official, who was staunchly opposed to Syria's involvement in Lebanon. The State Department says an FBI team will help in Lebanon's investigation of the bombing. 
Lance Armstrong has been stripped of his seven Tour De France titles. His name will be stricken from the record books. The cyclist from North Texas is banned for life from the sport. From Dallas, NPR's Wade8 Goodwyn has more. 
Lance Armstrong's fall from grace can only be described as his historic in scale. The seven-time Tour De France winner is accused of organizing an extensive team-wide doping conspiracy9 to cheat the other competitors in the race. Armstrong has denied the accusations10. But eyewitness11 testimony12 by former teammates who admitted they two doped have undermined Armstrong's proclamations of innocence13. The accounting14 is not over. The International Olympic Committee is likely to strip him of the bronze medal he won in 2000. And sponsors and their insurance companies may try to reclaim15 millions in bonus money paid for winning the tour. Wade Goodwyn, NPR News, Dallas.

Three years after a deadly earthquake struck central Italy, a court in L'Aquila has convicted seven scientists and experts for failing to give the public enough warning. It's sentenced the group to seven years in prison but that could all change on appeal. Still the convictions drew criticism from seismology experts worldwide who argue it is impossible to accurately17 predict when an earthquake will strike.
The oldest known survivor18 of the Auschwitz concentration camp has died in his native  Poland at the age of 108. NPR's Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson has more from Berlin.
According to Auschwitz Museum officials, Antoni Dobrowolski was a teacher who gave lessons in defiance19 of his country's Nazi20 occupiers. They had banned most schooling21 to destroy Polish culture, an underground effort to continue teaching children emerged, and those caught like Dobrowolski were sent to concentration camps including Auschwitz. In a video made five years ago, he recalled the camp being "worse than Dante's hell". Dobrowolski who was not Jewish, was also sent to two other concentration camps. After the war, he moved to Debno, where he worked as a Polish language teacher, he was also a principal at a local high school. Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson, NPR News, Berlin.
