World - U.S. says Syria strikes aimed at hampering Islamic State response to Kurdish advances

By David Alexander and Idrees Ali WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Defense Secretary Ash Carter said on Monday a flurry of U.S. air strikes around Raqqa, Syria, over the weekend were aimed at disrupting the ability of Islamic State rebels to respond to ground advances by Syrian Kurdish forces north of the city. The U.S.-led coalition, in an apparent shift in targeting, hit the capital of Islamic State`s self-declared caliphate with 18 air strikes on Saturday, destroying 16 bridges as well as tactical units and vehicles. Carter, speaking at a news conference with French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, said the air strikes were aimed at limiting Islamic State`s `freedom of movement and ability to counter those capable Kurdish forces` that have made advances in northern Syria.

World - Saudi-led strikes kill 30 in northern Yemen, Houthis say

Air strikes by Saudi-led forces killed 30 civilians in an attack on a market in northern Yemen on Sunday, the Houthi-run news agency Saba said, as U.N. mediators pushed for a humanitarian pause in fighting that has killed nearly 3,000 since March. Saba also said Houthi forces launched rockets against a number of Saudi army positions, including a military airport in the southern city of Najran, in response to what it described as Saudi aggression against Yemen. An Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia has been pounding the Iran-backed Houthi forces and allied army units loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh since March in a campaign to restore exiled President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi to power.
