World - Al Qaeda in Yemen executes three `spies` for guiding drone strikes

Al Qaeda militants in Yemen executed three local men in the easterly Hadramout province on Monday whom they suspected of assisting U.S. In a statement posted online, Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) acknowledged the threat it faced from air attacks by unmanned U.S. AQAP said it had captured a group of spies, adding: `The greatest help they give to the crusaders against the holy warriors is the placing of trackers for American spy planes.` AQAP is deemed by Washington to be one of the most dangerous franchises of the global militant group and controls broad swathes of Yemen, where security has deteriorated badly since the Arab spring protests that ousted the veteran president in 2011.

World - Florida power utilities fear return of `Green Governor` Crist

By David Adams MIAMI (Reuters) - When Charlie Crist last governed Florida, his green energy and climate policies made him few friends among the state`s powerful electricity corporations. Florida`s three largest utilities have poured money into the re-election campaign of Republican incumbent Governor Rick Scott in an expensive and closely watched political battle for the nation`s largest swing state. As Republican governor between 2007 and 2011, Crist `sent shivers through the entire utility system,` said Colleen Castille, who headed the Florida Department of Environmental Protection under Governor Jeb Bush. Crist was a darling of clean energy advocates, hosting a climate change summit in 2007 alongside another green Republican, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

World - Libyan government says has lost control of most Tripoli ministries

Libya`s government said it has lost control of most ministries and state institutions located in Tripoli after rival armed groups took over the capital. Last month, senior officials and the elected parliament moved to the remote eastern city of Tobruk as an alliance of armed factions led by forces from the western city of Misrata took control of Tripoli, having expelled a rival group. Libya is descending into anarchy as former rebels who helped topple Muammar Gaddafi in a NATO-backed uprising in 2011 have turned their guns on each other as they seek to set the country`s political agenda and control its vast oil reserves. `We announce that most ministries, institutions and state bodies in the capital Tripoli are out of our control,` the government said in a statement late on Sunday.

World - Fukushima accepts `temporary` radioactive waste storage

The governor of disaster-struck Fukushima agreed Monday to accept the `temporary` storage of nuclear waste from the Japanese accident, paving the way for an end to a years-long standoff. Yuhei Sato has been cajoled and lavished with the promises of subsidies if he accepts a central government plan to build a depot on land near the battered Fukushima Daiichi plant. `I have made an agonising decision to accept plans to construct temporary storage facilities in order to achieve recovery in the environment as soon as possible,` Sato told central government ministers in Tokyo. The worst nuclear accident in a generation erupted in March 2011 when a huge tsunami swamped the plant on Japan`s northeast coast, flooding cooling systems and sending reactors into meltdown.
