World - Tunisian economy `plagued by petty corruption`, experts say

Petty graft plagues Tunisia`s economy, nearly five years after state corruption triggered the fall of president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, partly due to lack of political will, experts say. Corruption was endemic under long-time dictator Ben Ali, whose close circle -- especially his wife`s family -- had an iron grip on the economy. Public debate has again centred around the topic after President Beji Caid Essebsi in July presented to the cabinet a draft `economic and financial reconciliation` bill that would grant amnesty to those convicted of corruption if they return stolen public money and pay fines.

World - Somali militants vow to welcome British peacekeepers `with fire`

By Feisal Omar MOGADISHU (Reuters) - Somalia`s militant Islamist group al Shabaab pledged on Tuesday to greet British troops `with fire` when they arrive to provide support to a peacekeeping force in the conflict-ravaged country. Last week Prime Minister David Cameron announced plans to deploy up to 70 troops and experts to provide logistical, medical and engineering support to the African Union-led peacekeeping force in Somalia, which is struggling to emerge from two decades of chaos and is also battling the Islamist insurgency of the al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab. `We hope we shall see the beheaded bodies of whites,` Sheikh Ali Mohamud Rage, al Shabaab`s spokesman, said in a radio broadcast.

World - How Iranian general plotted out Syrian assault in Moscow

By Laila Bassam and Tom Perry BEIRUT (Reuters) - At a meeting in Moscow in July, a top Iranian general unfurled a map of Syria to explain to his Russian hosts how a series of defeats for President Bashar al-Assad could be turned into victory - with Russia`s help. Major General Qassem Soleimani`s visit to Moscow was the first step in planning for a Russian military intervention that has reshaped the Syrian war and forged a new Iranian-Russian alliance in support of Assad. Soleimani is the commander of the Quds Force, the elite extra-territorial special forces arm of Iran`s Revolutionary Guards, and reports directly to Iran`s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
