Need to Know News: U.S. weighs how to pressure Iran in wake of alleged plot; Chinese officials blast Senate currency bill

Each day, we here at "Piers Morgan Tonight" put together the news you need to know – from what happened last night to what will happen today.

For October 12, 2011 – U.S. weighs how to pressure Iran, Chinese officials blast Senate, five things we learned from Tuesday's debate:

• U.S. weighs how to pressure Iran in wake of alleged plot: "With many sanctions already in place, the U.S. government is poised to take an even stronger stance Wednesday against Iran amid allegations that Tehran was behind a plot to assassinate a Saudi envoy on U.S. soil."

Chinese officials blast Senate currency bill: "In a rare showing of bipartisanship, the Senate passed a bill on Tuesday targeting China's undervalued currency - and angering Chinese officials who have warned of a 'trade war.'"

• Why Occupy Wall Street isn't about a list of demands: "A lot of lip service has been paid to the idea that Occupy Wall Street lacks focus. The critics ask: What's the goal of these protests? Everyone wants something different. Which is exactly the point."

• Five things we learned from Tuesday's debate: "Republican presidential rivals debated economic issues on Tuesday night and Herman Cain, the latest of the 2012 candidates to surge to the top of polls, found the bulls-eye painted on him."

Doug Fister, Detroit Tigers beat Texas Rangers in ALCS Game 3: "Supported by three solo home runs and a postseason-awakening three hits from previously slumping leadoff hitter Austin Jackson, Fister led the Tigers to a 5-2 victory that cut the Rangers' ALCS lead to 2-1."
