World - Iran says it watered down, converted over 200 kg of enriched uranium

Iran said on Saturday it had completed watering down and converting more than 200 kilograms (440 lb) of enriched uranium under a deal reached in Geneva last November with world powers over its disputed nuclear program. `Based on the agreement with the West, we were supposed to have half of our 200 kilogram stock of uranium diluted and the other half converted to uranium oxide,` Iran`s atomic chief, Ali Akbar Salehi, told the Arabic-language Al Alam television channel. The International Atomic Energy Agency said on Thursday that Iran has acted to cut its most sensitive nuclear stockpile by nearly 75 percent in implementing a landmark pact with world powers, but a planned facility it will need to fulfil the six-month deal has been delayed. Salehi, who heads the country`s atomic energy organization, said the fast process of uranium conversion was expected to expedite the release of frozen Iranian assets in the West.

World - Tunisia MPs slam `light` verdicts for Ben Ali officials

Tunisian lawmakers on Monday condemned as excessively lenient appeal sentences handed to top security officials in Zine El Abidine Ben Ali`s ousted regime for their part in repressing protests during the 2011 uprising. The military court in Tunis ruled on Saturday in several appeals trials of officials implicated in the bloody crackdown on protesters that left more than 300 people dead in Tunis and Sfax during the revolt that ousted Ben Ali and ignited the Arab Spring. The former head of presidential security, Ali Seriati, was given a three-year prison sentence, as was Rafik Belhaj Kacem, the interior minister at the time. Former chief of Tunisia`s special brigades, Jalel Boudriga, originally jailed for 10 years for pre-meditated murder, also saw his sentence reduced to three years, after the allegations against him were re-defined as non-assistance to people in danger.

World - Row over plan to merge Asia`s top posts

Prince Ali bin Al Hussein has savaged plans to hand his current role as FIFA vice-president to Asia`s football boss in a row which threatens to plunge regional soccer into a fresh round of infighting. In an open letter, the Jordanian royal `strongly opposed` the proposal backed by Asian Football Confederation (AFC) president Shaikh Salman bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa, which will be put to the vote in June. `I stand firm by my conviction that all sport... should be free from politics and completely devoid of politicos and self-interest individuals and groups that exploit the sport and all its stakeholders for their own personal gains,` Prince Ali wrote. Four of football`s six global confederations combine the role of regional president and FIFA vice-president, with the AFC and South America`s CONMEBOL the two exceptions.

World - Iran says Arak nuclear reactor row all but resolved

Iran`s dispute with world powers over its unfinished Arak heavy water reactor has been `virtually resolved,` it said Saturday, less than a month before nuclear talks seeking a permanent agreement. The facility -- whose remaining components Iran cannot commission or install under an interim agreement struck in November -- is of international concern as it could theoretically give Tehran a second route to a nuclear bomb. Nuclear chief Ali Akbar Salehi said Iran and the so-called P5+1 group of world powers were now seeing eye to eye on the Arak reactor after Tehran offered to make certain changes.

World - Algeria`s Bouteflika wins 4th term, rival rejects result

Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika clinched a fourth term on Friday, despite his poor health, winning a landslide victory in an election marred by low turnout and his rival alleging fraud. The 77-year-old incumbent who voted from a wheelchair on Thursday scooped 81.53 percent of the votes, compared with his main rival, Ali Benflis, who received 12.18 percent, Interior Minister Tayeb Belaiz told a news conference. Benflis, who had already cited `serious irregularities` across the country on polling day, swiftly refused to recognise Bouteflika`s re-election. Bouteflika`s victory had been widely expected, with his supporters celebrating in Algiers after polls closed late Thursday, and the press anticipating his re-election on Friday before the results were announced.

World - Bouteflika set to win as Algeria awaits vote result

Algeria`s President Abdelaziz Bouteflika was expected to win a fourth term despite his poor health when official results are announced Friday after a vote marred by low turnout and allegations of `massive` fraud. The results are to be unveiled in the afternoon by Interior Minister Tayib Belaiz, but Bouteflika`s supporters were certain of victory and celebrated in the streets of the capital Algiers after polls closed Thursday. Bouteflika`s main rival, former premier Ali Benflis, said he rejected the result and alleged `massive fraud` and `serious irregularities` across the country on polling day. Even if Bouteflika`s success is confirmed, the win will be overshadowed by the fact that turnout dropped sharply from the previous election in 2009, after a coalition of activists and opposition parties urged voters to shun the ballot.

World - 70 wounded as anti-vote Algerian youths, police clash

Raffour (Algeria) (AFP) - Clashes in Algeria`s restive Kabylie region between security forces and youths opposed to Thursday`s presidential election wounded around 70 people, local sources said. Separate groups of youths seeking to disrupt voting in the Bouira region, southeast of Algiers, ransacked polling stations in three localities shortly after they opened at 0700 GMT, with riot police firing tear gas to disperse them. At least 70 people were injured, including 47 policemen, and voting was temporarily suspended in Raffour, M`Chedellah and Saharij, the sources said. Graffiti scrawled across a metal barrier read: `No to Bouteflika, no to Benflis, yes to a democratic transition,` referring to President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, who is seeking re-election after 15 years in power, and his main rival Ali Benflis.
