(CNN) -- Superstorm Sandy has dominated our coverage on CNN.com International since it first hit the Dominican Republic, Haiti and parts of the Caribbean. The devastation in the U.S. has generated huge interest from our readers around the world.
We will continue to bring you the latest on this developing story. But there are other stories in the world today that you might have missed. Here are five that were high on the agenda in our newsrooms.
1. In Rustenberg, South Africa, police clashed Tuesday with more than 1,000 striking miners who were barricading public roads near the Anglo American Platinum mine, as part of a wave of wildcat strikes that has wracked the country's mining sector for more than two months.
2. The prime minister of Qatar has accused Syria's government of waging "a war of extermination" against its own people, according to state media, hours after a failed four-day ceasefire during a Muslim holiday left hundreds dead.
3. In southern Afghanistan, two NATO troops were killed when they were shot by a man wearing an Afghan police uniform on Tuesday, according to a spokeswoman for the International Security Assistance Force. More than 50 people have been killed in so-called "green-on-blue" attacks this year.
4. There has been a surprise change in the ranks of Apple's senior management, with the announcement that Scott Forstall -- a senior vice president in charge of Apple's mobile operating system, iOS, and one of the most visible faces of Apple in the wake of Steve Jobs' death -- will be leaving the company next year.
5. And a British scientific expedition to probe an ancient, unfrozen lake beneath an Antarctic glacier may contain clues to life elsewhere in the universe.
