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 - 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.

World - Yemen`s foreign minister says will push donors for promised billions in aid

By Mohammed Ghobari SANAA (Reuters) - The Yemeni foreign minister said on Thursday he would use a meeting in London this month to push donor countries to release billions of dollars in promised aid that Yemen desperately needs to address its ailing economy and volatile security situation. The Friends of Yemen group pledged around $7.9 billion in aid in 2012, but most of the funds have been delayed because of technical issues and lagging approvals by donor heads of state, a Yemeni government minister previously told Reuters. Yemen`s economy nearly collapsed during the year-long revolt that toppled former President Ali Abdullah Saleh. Stability in Yemen is seen as key by Washington and Gulf countries because of the country`s location next to the world`s top oil exporter Saudi Arabia and on the important Red Sea oil shipment route.

World - Iranian negotiators reject hardline criticism of nuclear talks

By Michelle Moghtader ABU DHABI (Reuters) - Iranian hardliners stepped up criticism of Tehran`s negotiations with world powers over its nuclear program on Wednesday, but negotiators defended the planned deal that could lead to an end to economic sanctions. The hardliners, unsettled by the shift to a more moderate foreign policy since President Hassan Rouhani took office in August, have repeatedly criticized the talks in recent months but Iran`s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei backs them. Iran and six world powers - the United States, France, Germany, Britain, Russia and China - struck an interim deal in November under which Tehran agreed to limit some of its nuclear work in return for the easing some sanctions imposed on Iran for its disputed atomic program.
