Four Taliban militants struck a NATO post in the eastern Afghan province of Nangarhar on Thursday, destroying dozens of trucks and sparking a gun battle with polices, Afghan officials said. The attack took place in the parking compound of a NATO base near the Torkham crossing on the Pakistani border, near the Khyber Pass and a main supply route for NATO-led forces in land-locked Afghanistan. Militants on both sides of the border have for years been attacking supplies bound for NATO-led forces in Afghanistan. Ahmad Zia Abdulzai, a spokesman for the provincial governor, said one attacker blew himself up while police killed the other three. He said 37 trucks containing fuel and other supplies were destroyed in explosions set off by the attackers. One Afghan driver was injured, a witness told Reuters. More»

Ukrainian forces and pro-Russian separatists were locked in a fierce battle in the rebellious east of the country on Thursday, Ukrainian military sources said. The sources said there were reports that tanks had been deployed by both sides but this could not immediately be confirmed. One military source said heavy fighting broke out at around 4 a.m. near the town of Krasny Liman, which has been under government control since early this month, and that separatists in the area appeared to have tried to break through a cordon of government troops. "There's a major battle going on which exceeds in terms of force and scale anything there has been up to now," the military source said. Dmytro Tymchuk, a military analyst who has good sources in the military, said separately that fighting had begun when separatists refused a call for them to lay down their arms in line with a peace plan outlined by President Petro Poroshenko. Up to 4,000 separatist fighters could be involved and armored vehicles, possibly tanks, were being used by each side, the military source said. "The anti-terrorist operation is continuing. There is a battle going on," government forces spokesman Vladyslav Seleznyov said. Asked about the report that 4,000 separatists could be involved, Seleznyov replied: "Then, there'll be 4,000 coffins". More»

President Barack Obama came under pressure from U.S. lawmakers on Wednesday to persuade Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki to step down over what they see as failed leadership in the face of an insurgency threatening his country. As Obama held an hour-long meeting with congressional leaders on U.S. options in Iraq, administration officials joined a chorus of criticism of Maliki, faulting him for failing to heal sectarian rifts that militants have exploited. Army General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the U.S. military's Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a congressional hearing that Maliki's Shi'ite-led government had asked for U.S. air power to help counter Sunni militants who have overrun northern Iraq. The general did not say whether Washington would meet the request. But Dempsey signaled that the U.S. military - apparently much like Obama - was in no rush to launch airstrikes in Iraq, citing the need to clarify a chaotic situation on the ground so any targets could be selected "responsibly." In Oval Office talks, Obama briefed the lawmakers on efforts to get Iraqi leaders to "set aside sectarian agendas," reviewed options for "increased security assistance" and sought their views, the White House said.

Potential Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton pointed out her differences with President Barack Obama on Tuesday over his decision not to arm moderate Syrian rebels, as neighboring Iraq struggles to cope with extremist spillover from Syria. "We pushed very hard. But as I say in my book, I believe that Harry Truman was right, the buck stops with the president," Clinton said in a CNN interview. The former secretary of state said she, along with the then heads of the Pentagon and CIA tried but failed to persuade Obama to arm the rebels fighting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, but that the White House resisted. Clinton said it was not clear whether arming moderates in Syria would have prevented the rise of the al Qaeda splinter group, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, which has swept toward Baghdad aiming to build a Muslim caliphate across the Iraqi-Syrian border.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Ukrainian counterpart, Petro Poroshenko, discussed a possible ceasefire in eastern Ukraine and the deaths of two Russian journalists there in a late night telephone conversation, the Kremlin said. The conversation "touched on the theme of a possible ceasefire in the area of military action in southeastern Ukraine", the Kremlin said in a statement. It also said Putin had expressed his concern over the deaths of two Russian state television journalists, who were killed in shelling in clashes between Ukrainian forces and pro-Russian separatists near the eastern city of Luhansk. Poroshenko expressed his condolences and assured Putin there would be an investigation and measures would be taken to protect journalists. More»

At least 13 people were killed and 20 injured after a bomb tore through a venue in the northeast Nigerian town of Damaturu where fans had gathered to watch a World Cup soccer match. A Reuters reporter at the local General Sani Abacha Specialist Hospital on Wednesday counted 13 people dead - including small children - and at least 20 injured. Some of the injured eyewitnesses told Reuters it was the work of a suicide bomber, while others said an attacker dropped a device in front of the venue and ran off. More»

Royal Dutch Shell launched a long-anticipated sale of most of its stake in Australia's Woodside Petroleum Ltd on Tuesday, looking to reap about $5.7 billion as it moves to focus on developing its own gas assets in Australia. The selldown, which reduces Shell's holding to 4.5 percent from 23.1 percent, removes uncertainty that has weighed on Woodside's share price since Shell sold a third of its stake in 2010 and flagged it was not a long term holder. As part of the deal, Woodside will buy back and cancel half the shares that Shell is selling, which Australia's top petroleum producer said would effectively boost its earnings per share by 6 percent. "It's probably good. It removes the overhang and gets rid of a lazy balance sheet and they can get on with life," said Pengana Capital portfolio manager Tim Schroeders. The reduction in Shell's stake marks a milestone in a long retreat from a company that it had tried to take over in 2001. That deal was ultimately blocked by the Australian government after Woodside argued that Shell may focus on offshore developments at the expense of Australian projects. More»

President Barack Obama considered options for military action to support Iraq's besieged government on Monday but made no decision on the U.S. response to a Sunni militant onslaught that has threatened to tear the country apart. Obama, who discussed the crisis with his top national security advisers, has made U.S. action contingent on Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's taking steps to broaden his Shi'ite-dominated government. "The president will continue to consult with his national security team in the days to come," the White House said, without elaborating. A senior U.S. official said Obama had not yet decided on a course of action. Militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant group have routed Baghdad's army and seized the north of the country in the past week, threatening to dismember Iraq and unleash all-out sectarian warfare with no regard for national borders.

China sentenced three people to death on Monday for a deadly attack at Beijing's Tiananmen Square last October, state television reported, an incident blamed by the government on Islamist militants. Another attacker was given a life sentence, and four others received jail terms ranging from five to 20 years. Five people were killed and 40 hurt when a car plowed into a crowd at the northern edge of Tiananmen Square and burst into flames. Those killed included two bystanders and three people in the car. Two of those sentenced, named in a state media report, appeared to have ethnic Uighur names. The western province of Xinjiang is the traditional home of the Turkic-speaking Uighurs, and China has blamed previous knife and bomb attacks on separatists who seek to establish an independent state there called East Turkestan. China has been on edge since a suicide bombing last month killed 39 people at a market in Xinjiang's capital of Urumqi. More»

The death toll in an attack by gunmen on the Kenyan coastal town of Mpeketoni rose to at least 48 people, the Kenya Red Cross and police said on Monday. Militants targeted two hotels, a bank and a police station with guns and at least one explosive device. The assault on Sunday night was the latest in a string of attacks that have hurt Kenya's tourism business, a key source of foreign exchange. Mpeketoni lies north of Kenya's main port of Mombasa. More»
