HONG KONG (AP) — China`s Communist leaders have pulled out their usual playbook to suppress resistance to their plans to tightly limit the first direct election of Hong Kong`s leader, but are likely to find that the results are quite different. Beijing is blaming radicals and foreigners and showing off its military might, all things unlikely to go down well in the freewheeling capitalist bastion where a sizeable middle class accustomed to freedom of speech and the rule of law plans to push back with acts of civil disobedience.

World - Saudi court jails 17 for seeking to fight in Iraq: SPA

A Saudi Arabian court jailed 17 men for up to 26 years on Monday for seeking to fight in Iraq and funding militants, official media reported, part of a security crackdown in which scores have been imprisoned in recent weeks. Worried about potential threats from citizens who have traveled to join Islamist insurgents in Syria and Iraq, Saudi Arabia has banned them from fighting abroad, donating money to any faction or sympathizing with militant ideologies. The official Saudi Press Agency reported that the 17 were sentenced to terms of imprisonment ranging from 2-1/2 years to 26 years. The men were charged with following extremist ideology, disobeying the country`s leadership by planning to fight in Iraq, coordinating the travel of some `misled` members of society and trying to turn public opinion against the state.

World - No sign of life from missing Nicaragua miners

No one will rest,` said Marcela Castillo of Nicaraguan mining firm Hemco, which is taking part in the four-day-old rescue effort. Rescuers have made 25 trips into the mine, where the unstable earth forces workers to `walk on tiptoe,` local government representative Lumberto Campbell told TV station Canal 4. He said rescue workers would not give up until they reached the spot where the missing miners` colleagues said they were working when a landslide, triggered by heavy downpours, caused the mine to cave in on 30 people early Thursday. The mine shaft, in the remote village of El Comal, was abandoned more than 80 years ago by the foreign mining firms that operate in Nicaragua`s gold-rich northeast.
