Violence erupts in Liberia's Ebola-hit slum
21 Aug 2014 | 4:46 am
Violence erupted in an Ebola quarantine zone in Liberia's capital Wednesday when soldiers opened fire and used tear gas on protesting crowds as they evacuated a state official and her family. Four residents were injured in the clashes that flared in Monrovia's West Point slum which has been sealed off as part of new security measures aimed at containing the deadly virus. The crackdown in Liberia comes as authorities around the world scramble to stem the worst-ever outbreak of Ebola, which has killed at least 1,350 people across west Africa this year. Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf quarantined West Point and Dolo Town, to the east of the capital, and imposed a night-time curfew as part of new drastic measures to fight the disease.

Israeli air strike kills three Hamas commanders in Gaza
21 Aug 2014 | 4:38 am
By Nidal al-Mughrabi and Maayan Lubell GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel killed three senior Hamas commanders in an air strike on the Gaza Strip on Thursday, the clearest signal yet that Israel is intent on eliminating the group's military leadership after a failed attempt on the life of its top commander this week. Hamas, which dominates Gaza, named the men as Mohammed Abu Shammala, Raed al-Attar and Mohammed Barhoum and said they were killed in the bombing of a house in the southern town of Rafah. All three were described as senior Hamas military figures. The Israeli military and Shin Bet, the internal security service, confirmed that two of the men were targeted, in what would constitute the killing of the most senior Hamas leaders since Israel launched its offensive in Gaza on July 8.
Israeli air strikes kill senior Hamas commanders in Gaza
21 Aug 2014 | 4:36 am
Israeli warplanes killed three top Hamas commanders in southern Gaza on Thursday, inflicting a heavy blow on the movement's armed wing after failing to kill its top military chief. As the six-week war between Israel and Hamas raged on, leaving Egyptian mediated truce talks in tatters, warplanes continued to pound Gaza killing three members of the Islamist movement's armed wing, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades. The Brigades said the three were "senior commanders," identifying them as Mohammed Abu Shamala, Raed al-Atar and Mohammed Barhum, vowing to make Israel pay.

Ukraine's economy minister Sheremeta offers resignation
21 Aug 2014 | 4:34 am
Ukrainian Economy Minister Pavlo Sheremeta said on Thursday he had tendered his resignation and voiced frustration at not being able to push ahead with much-needed economic reform. After months of fighting in its eastern regions following the toppling of a government blighted by corruption and economic mismanagement, Ukraine's economy has contracted sharply, even with a multi-billion dollar financial lifeline from the International Monetary Fund. Sheremeta had vowed to slash red tape and eliminate corrupt practices that have helped to virtually bankrupt Ukraine when he was appointed soon after the ousting of a Moscow-backed president in February. Sheremeta's offer to resign follows comments from Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk on Wednesday that voiced dissatisfaction with the speed and depths of reforms.

US reveals failed hostage rescue operation in Syria
21 Aug 2014 | 4:21 am
The United States said Wednesday that its special forces tried this summer to rescue American hostages held by Islamist militants in Syria. News reports quoting government officials said Wednesday the captives included James Foley, the American journalist whose graphic execution by an Islamic State (IS) jihadist was revealed in a video Tuesday. Foley was kidnapped in northern Syria in November 2012 and his grisly murder has provoked revulsion and condemnation. "This operation involved air and ground components and was focused on a particular captor network within ISIL (IS)," Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said in a statement, referring to the Islamic State.
