World - Tunisian deputy survives assassination attempt

By Tarek Amara TUNIS (Reuters) - A deputy in Tunisia`s transitional parliament survived an assassination attempt in the city of Kasserine, near the Algerian border, where security forces have been hunting Islamist militants for months. Mohamed Ali Nasri told reporters in hospital that about five gunmen attacked his house late on Monday. Tunisia holds its first free parliamentary elections on Oct. 26 after parliament adopted a new constitution this year.

World - Islamic State militants behead captive Lebanese soldier: video

Islamic State militants beheaded a Lebanese soldier who was one of 19 captured by hardline Syrian Islamists when they seized a Lebanese border town for few days this month, a video posted on social media showed on Saturday. The soldier, recognizable as Ali al-Sayyed, a Sunni Muslim from north Lebanon, was shown blindfolded with his hands tied behind his back, writhing and kicking the dusty ground while a militant announces he will be killed. Islamic State, which declared a `caliphate` in June in parts of Iraq and Syria under its control, has been cited as a major security threat by Western governments since posting a video in August of the beheading of U.S journalist James Foley. The Lebanese army declined to comment but security and Islamic State sources confirmed the latest beheading.

World - Yemen Shiite rebels rally in Sanaa and vow `escalation`

Tens of thousands of supporters of Yemen`s Shiite rebels demonstrated in the capital Sanaa on Wednesday, threatening escalation which their leader vowed would be `painful`, an AFP correspondent reported. `The people want the government out,` chanted protesters gathered in Sanaa`s northern district, shunning a plea by President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi on Tuesday for the rebels to disperse. Our people will step up the pressure,` they called out, waving flags of the General People`s Congress -- the party still headed by former president Ali Abdullah Saleh. The protesters, rallying on a road leading to Sanaa airport, brandished portraits of Syria`s embattled president Bashar al-Assad and of Hassan Nasrallah, head of the Shiite Lebanese militia Hezbollah, an AFP correspondent said.

World - Iran modifies Arak reactor over nuclear concerns

Iran said Wednesday it has started to modify its Arak heavy water reactor and limit plutonium output, a cause of Western concerns over the country`s nuclear programme. `Modification of the heart of the Arak reactor is in the process of being carried out by our experts ... to ease the worries of certain countries,` said Ali Akbar Salehi, who heads Iran`s nuclear programme, quoted by ISNA news agency.

World - Fighting between rival factions kills 17 in Central Africa

At least 17 people were killed in fighting between rival factions of the former rebel movement Seleka in the Central African Republic, an officer in the African peacekeeping force there said Tuesday. The dead were all ex-rebels who battled on Monday in the heart of the central town of Bambari, where the Seleka forces set up their headquarters in May, said the officer in the MISCA force deployed by the African Union, asking not to be named. `One side was the group of General Joseph Zoundeko, head of the Seleka general staff in Bambari, and the other is that of General Ali Djarras, made up of armed ethnic Peuls (Fulani)` active in the region,` he added. A transitional president, Catherine Samba Panza, took office that same month, and she has overseen the signing of a ceasefire pact between Seleka forces and the largely Christian `anti-balaka` militias that emerged to wreak vengeance against Muslims for atrocities by ex-rebels.
