World - Iran`s Revolutionary Guards position for power


By Babak Dehghanpisheh BEIRUT (Reuters) - Iran`s Revolutionary Guards look set to entrench their power and shift the country to more hardline, isolationist policies for years to come following the death of influential powerbroker Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani. Former president Rafsanjani long had a contentious relationship with the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), which is both the strongest military force in Iran and also has vast economic interests worth billions of dollars. With a presidential election in May and a question mark over the health of Iran`s most powerful figure, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, analysts say the Guards will soon have opportunities to tighten their grip on the levers of power.

World - Surge of African migrants brave Latin America jungle trek for U.S. dream


By Anastasia Moloney TAPACHULA, Mexico (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Using a stone, Ahmed Ali Hassan scraped away at the side of the container truck until he made a small hole, and putting his parched mouth to it, gasped for air. The overcrowded truck carrying nearly 100 migrants, many from Africa, took turns to breathe in pockets of dry air as the truck rattled through rural Nicaragua. `We all thought we were going to die,` Hassan, a Somali, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation as he recalled last month`s journey.

World - Bahrain executes three Shi`ites for bombing, sparks outcry


Bahrain on Sunday executed three Shi`ite Muslim men convicted of killing three policemen in a 2014 bomb attack, the first such executions in over two decades, drawing condemnation from foreign officials in the region and beyond. Activists in Bahrain reacted with rage to the move, calling it a `black day` for the Gulf Arab kingdom` and posting images of protestors clashing with police on social media. The executions came less than a week after the country`s highest court confirmed the punishment against Abbas al-Samea, 27, Sami Mushaima, 42, and Ali al-Singace, 21, found guilty of killing one Emirati and two Bahraini police officers.

World - Bahrain executes three Shi`ites convicted of killing policemen


RIYADH (Reuters) - Bahraini authorities on Sunday executed three Shi`ite Muslim men convicted of killing an Emirati police officer and two Bahraini policemen in a 2014 bomb attack, the public prosecutor said, in the first death sentences to be carried out since 2008. The executions came less than a week after the country`s highest court, the Court of Cassation, confirmed the death sentences originally imposed in 2015 against Abbas al-Samea, Sami Mushaima and Ali al-Singace.

World - Riots in Tunisia on revolt`s anniversary, protests greet president


Local residents said protests that erupted in the southern town of Ben Guerdane had spread over the weekend to several other areas such as Sidi Bouzid, Meknassi and Gafsa, where Essebsi visited to mark the 2011 uprising that ousted autocrat Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. Six years after that revolt, Tunisia is hailed as a model of democratic transition, but rural central and southern regions remain flashpoints for rioting in marginalized towns where many young Tunisians see little economic opportunity or progress.

World - Tunisia marks low key revolution anniversary


Tunisia on Saturday marked the sixth anniversary of the fall of dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali without fanfare, after official recognition of failure on the economic and social fronts. In Tunis, a crowd gathered on Habib Bourguiba Avenue in the presence of political and civil society groups, but local media said no other ceremonies appeared to have been organised elsewhere in Tunisia. Prime Minister Youssef Chahed acknowledged on national television on Friday night that authorities had so far failed to address the grievances of the Tunisian people that had fuelled the 2011 revolution.

World - Trump`s Pentagon pick says U.S. must be ready to confront Russia


By Phil Stewart and Idrees Ali WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President-elect Donald Trump`s pick to lead the Pentagon told Congress on Thursday the United States must be ready to confront Russian behavior in areas where the two countries cannot cooperate, even as he backed Trump`s bid to engage with Moscow. The remarks by retired Marine General James Mattis in written responses to questions from Congress are likely to set the tone for a Senate Armed Services Committee confirmation hearing that began at 9:30 a.m. ET (1430 GMT). `We engaged with Russia even during the darkest days of the Cold War, and I support the President-elect`s desire to engage with Russia now,` Mattis wrote.

The remarks by retired Marine General James Mattis in written responses to questions from Congress appeared set to endear him to Russia-wary Republicans and Democrats on the Senate Armed Services Committee, which is expected to back his nomination. `We engaged with Russia even during the darkest days of the Cold War, and I support the President-elect`s desire to engage with Russia now,` Mattis wrote.

World - Russia, Iran likely focus at hearing on Trump pick for defense chief


By Phil Stewart and Idrees Ali WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President-elect Donald Trump`s pick to lead the Pentagon is expected to field tough questions about civilian control of the military as well as future U.S. policy toward Russia and Iran during his Senate confirmation hearing on Thursday. James Mattis, who retired as a four-star Marine general in 2013, is technically ineligible for the job since he has not been a civilian for at least seven years. In his opening statement, Mattis will make the case that he can lead the military as a civilian, even after a 44-year military career.
