World - Iraq`s top cleric sends subtle message to Maliki - step aside


By Raheem, Salman and Isra` al-Rubai`i BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq`s senior cleric on Friday urged political leaders to refrain from clinging to their posts - an apparent reference to Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, who has defied demands that he step aside. Speaking through an aide who delivered a sermon after Friday prayers in the holy city of Kerbala, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani said leaders should show flexibility so that political deadlocks could be broken and Iraq could confront militants. Last month, Sunni militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant swept through northern and western Iraq, posing the biggest challenge to Maliki`s Shi`ite-led government since the departure of U.S. forces in 2011. Critics say Maliki is a divisive figure whose alienation of Sunnis has fueled sectarian hatred and played into the hands of the insurgents, who have threatened to march on Baghdad.

World - Singapore match-fixer jailed for three years in sex-bribe case


A Singaporean businessman was jailed for three years on Thursday for providing prostitutes to three Lebanese football referees in a match-fixing attempt that has put the spotlight on the city-state`s role in global sports corruption. Nightclub owner Eric Ding Si Yang, 32, was refused bail while he appeals the ruling, and state prosecutors said they would file a motion before a higher court to demand a harsher punishment. Ding was found guilty on July 1 of corruption for bribing referee Ali Sabbagh, 35 and assistant referees Ali Eid, 34, and Abdallah Taleb, 38, before a match last year in Singapore. District Judge Toh Yung Cheong said as he handed down the jail sentence that Singapore`s reputation had been tarnished by match-fixing.

During the last major conflict in and around Gaza in November 2012, Larijani said Iran was `proud` to have provided `both financial and military support` to Hamas.

World - U.N.`s Ban seeks advice on Iraq crisis from top cleric


U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon sought guidance from Iraq`s top cleric on Thursday, as he urged Iraqi politicians to form an inclusive government that can confront a Sunni militant insurgency. Ban`s meeting with Shi`ite Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani underscored the 83-year-old cleric`s vast sway in Iraq, where Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki is considered a polarizing figure who has fueled sectarian tensions. A spokesman for Ban told Reuters the United Nations chief was meeting with Sistani in the city of Najaf to seek his wisdom on developments in Iraq. Sistani has seized his most active role in politics in a decade, asserting dominance over public affairs and demanding politicians choose a new government without delay.
