World - Libya rebels warn Tripoli oil ports to stay closed unless deal implemented

By Feras Bosalum and Ahmed Elumami TRIPOLI (Reuters) - A rebel group in eastern Libya that controls several oil ports said on Thursday it would not reopen the key Ras Lanuf and Es Sider terminals unless the government implemented its part of a recent deal to end the oil blockade. In a sign of further delays to restart vital oil exports from the volatile east, rebels said the Tripoli government had failed to fulfill its part of the accord reached this month. Diplomats expect both sides to implement the deal eventually as the country badly needs the oil revenue but tactical maneuvers and mutual mistrust are likely to cause delays. The row is part of chaos in the North African country where the government cannot control militias who helped oust Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 but have held on to their weapons to make political and financial demands by seizing oilfields or government ministries.

World - U.S. vows to help Libya tackle `rising violent extremism`

U.S. Deputy Secretary of State William Burns on Thursday promised Libya more U.S. help against extremist violence, saying the country could not achieve political or economic stability without tackling its security challenges. Libya`s weak central government is struggling to assert its authority against militias and armed tribesmen who helped oust Muammar Gaddafi in a 2011 NATO-backed uprising. `Rising violent extremism is an enormous challenge first for Libya but also for Libya`s international partners,` Burns told a news conference after talks in the capital Tripoli.

World - Attacks kill 13 in Iraq ahead of vote

Hilla (Iraq) (AFP) - Violence focused mainly on security checkpoints killed 13 people in Iraq Thursday, as the country struggles with daily unrest ahead of next week`s parliamentary election. Iraq is suffering a protracted surge in bloodshed that has killed more than 2,800 people this year, and Wednesday`s polls -- the first since US troops departed in 2011 -- will be a major test for security forces. A car bomb exploded at a police checkpoint near the city of Hilla, south of Baghdad, killing eight people, among them three police, and wounding 20, an officer and a doctor said. Security forces were able to keep violence to a minimum during provincial elections last year, but they have failed to halt a subsequent year-long surge in unrest.

World - Fu ends Gould world championship jinx

Sheffield (United Kingdom) (AFP) - Hong Kong ace cuesman Marco Fu set up a second round clash with former world champion Shaun Murphy at this year`s snooker world championships with a fine 10-7 win over Englishman Martin Gould on Wednesday. Fu, seeded seven, had lost to Gould on the previous two occasions they had met at the championships, bowing out in the first round in 2010 and 2011. However, the 36-year-old -- whose best performance at the championships was reaching the semi-finals in 2006 -- kept his nerve to repel a late challenge by Gould to seal his place in the last 16 against 2005 world champion Murphy. Two former beaten finalists also went through, English duo Judd Trump and Barry Hawkins.

World - Libya body charged with drawing up charter starts work

Al-Baida (Libya) (AFP) - Libya`s constituent assembly, which has been charged with drawing up a new constitution, launched its work Monday in Al-Baida, in the country`s east where violence has been rife since the 2011 revolt. The new constitution has been billed as a milestone in the North African country`s transition from the 42-year dictatorship of Moamer Kadhafi, who was overthrown and killed in 2011. Eastern Libya was the cradle of the NATO-backed 2011 revolt.

Sports - Struggling Jazz part ways with head coach Corbin

(Reuters) - The Utah Jazz are beginning a search for a new head coach after deciding not to offer Tyrone Corbin a new contract, the NBA team said on Monday following a last-place finish in the Western Conference. `This has not been an easy decision, but after a thorough review process, we as an organization feel that this is the best decision for our franchise moving forward.` Corbin took over as head coach on February 10, 2011, following the resignation of longtime coach Jerry Sloan. Prior to his promotion, Corbin served as an assistant coach for the Jazz under Sloan from 2004-2011. The decision to part ways with Corbin means Utah will be one of at least three teams who will have new coaches next season as the New York Knicks fired Mike Woodson earlier on Monday and Rick Adelman retired as coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

World - Defiant Egypt workers pose challenge to next president

Mahallah (Egypt) (AFP) - Egypt`s next president will have to contend with frustrated workers who have threatened a new wave of nationwide strikes if their demands are not met by an already cash-strapped government. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the ex-army chief who overthrew Islamist president Mohamed Morsi last July and is hailed by supporters as a tough leader who can restore stability, is widely expected to win next month`s election. But he is likely to face strident demands from the same labour leaders who organised a massive 2008 strike seen as a precursor to the 2011 uprising that ended Hosni Mubarak`s three-decade rule. `All governments over the past three years, including Morsi`s, have only made promises, but never delivered,` Fayoumi told AFP at a roadside cafe in Egypt`s textile hub of Mahallah, 115 kilometres (70 miles) north of Cairo.

World - Reluctant Kosovo approves war crimes court

Kosovo`s parliament on Wednesday approved the creation of an international war crimes court to investigate allegations against ethnic Albanian guerrillas during their conflict with Serbia in the late 1990s. Pristina has been under pressure from the European Union to create the special court ever since a 2011 Council of Europe report alleged crimes including abductions, summary executions and -- most controversially -- the trafficking of prisoners` organs by members of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) during the 1998-99 war. The report by the Council`s special rapporteur Dick Marty said the KLA, which fought Serbian armed forces during the conflict, had abused, tortured and killed 500 prisoners, mostly ethnic Serbs and Roma. Prime Minister Hashim Thaci, who was a commander during the war, had strongly opposed the creation of the court, calling it `unjust and the greatest insult` to Kosovo.
