Hard Numbers: Height Requirements in China

25: Only 25 percent of eligible voters in Afghanistan turned out for Saturday's national elections. That was the lowest participation since the US and its allies swept the Taliban from power in 2001, and came amid a spate of bombings and mortar attacks on polling centers.

$27 million: Swiss authorities netted $27 million on Sunday from the auction of a white Lamborghini Veneno roadster, an armored Rolls Royce Silver Spur, a vintage Aston Martin Lagonda and a bevy of other exotic cars that once belonged to the son of Equatorial Guinea's longtime president. The cars were seized as part of a money-laundering probe.

5 foot 9: That's how tall you need to be (1.75m for our metrically inclined friends) in order to be one of the 15,0000 Chinese soldiers marching to commemorate China's 70th anniversary parade today. The maximum allowable height is 6 foot 1 (1.85m).

500: Houthi rebels in Yemen claimed to have killed or wounded 500 troops belonging to the opposing Saudi-led coalition fighting in the country, while capturing four times as many. If true, it would be one of the biggest Houthi victories in the brutal, nearly-five-year-old conflict. First drones, now this: Houthi capabilities are growing.
