World - African, Somali troops retake town on way to rebel stronghold


By Abdi Sheikh MOGADISHU (Reuters) - African peacekeeping troops and Somali forces recaptured a southern town from Islamist al Shabaab rebels on Saturday, bringing them a step closer to the insurgent stronghold of Barawe, commanders said. Al Shabaab ruled most of the southern region of Somalia from 2006 until 2011 when African troops marched into the capital. We have chased the al Shabaab and the operation will continue until its goals of securing the entire country is achieved,` Abdirizak Khalif, Somalia`s deputy military commander, told Reuters. He did not give casualty figures, but a spokesman for the African Union force AMISOM, Colonel Ali Aden Houmed, said a Ugandan soldier was killed and two soldiers wounded.

World - Islamic State militants behead captive Lebanese soldier: video


Islamic State militants beheaded a Lebanese soldier who was one of 19 captured by hardline Syrian Islamists when they seized a Lebanese border town for few days this month, a video posted on social media showed on Saturday. The soldier, recognizable as Ali al-Sayyed, a Sunni Muslim from north Lebanon, was shown blindfolded with his hands tied behind his back, writhing and kicking the dusty ground while a militant announces he will be killed. Islamic State, which declared a `caliphate` in June in parts of Iraq and Syria under its control, has been cited as a major security threat by Western governments since posting a video in August of the beheading of U.S journalist James Foley. The Lebanese army declined to comment but security and Islamic State sources confirmed the latest beheading.

World - Turkey`s new cabinet unlikely to spell major policy shift


By Gulsen Solaker ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey`s new Prime Minister, Ahmet Davutoglu, will announce his cabinet on Friday, a day after Tayyip Erdogan was sworn in as president, with the new government not expected to signal any major changes in policy direction. The current economic team, including Deputy Prime Minister Ali Babacan and Finance Minister Mehmet Simsek, is expected to remain largely intact. EU minister Mevlut Cavusoglu is seen as leading contender for foreign minister. Erdogan aide Yalcin Akdogan was also expected to take up a position in cabinet, possibly as a deputy prime minister.

World - Yemen Shiite rebels rally in Sanaa and vow `escalation`


Tens of thousands of supporters of Yemen`s Shiite rebels demonstrated in the capital Sanaa on Wednesday, threatening escalation which their leader vowed would be `painful`, an AFP correspondent reported. `The people want the government out,` chanted protesters gathered in Sanaa`s northern district, shunning a plea by President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi on Tuesday for the rebels to disperse. Our people will step up the pressure,` they called out, waving flags of the General People`s Congress -- the party still headed by former president Ali Abdullah Saleh. The protesters, rallying on a road leading to Sanaa airport, brandished portraits of Syria`s embattled president Bashar al-Assad and of Hassan Nasrallah, head of the Shiite Lebanese militia Hezbollah, an AFP correspondent said.

World - Iran modifies Arak reactor over nuclear concerns


Iran said Wednesday it has started to modify its Arak heavy water reactor and limit plutonium output, a cause of Western concerns over the country`s nuclear programme. `Modification of the heart of the Arak reactor is in the process of being carried out by our experts ... to ease the worries of certain countries,` said Ali Akbar Salehi, who heads Iran`s nuclear programme, quoted by ISNA news agency. The reactor in Arak, 240 kilometres (145 miles) southwest of Tehran, could in theory provide Iran with weapons-grade plutonium.

World - Fighting between rival factions kills 17 in Central Africa


At least 17 people were killed in fighting between rival factions of the former rebel movement Seleka in the Central African Republic, an officer in the African peacekeeping force there said Tuesday. The dead were all ex-rebels who battled on Monday in the heart of the central town of Bambari, where the Seleka forces set up their headquarters in May, said the officer in the MISCA force deployed by the African Union, asking not to be named. `One side was the group of General Joseph Zoundeko, head of the Seleka general staff in Bambari, and the other is that of General Ali Djarras, made up of armed ethnic Peuls (Fulani)` active in the region,` he added. A transitional president, Catherine Samba Panza, took office that same month, and she has overseen the signing of a ceasefire pact between Seleka forces and the largely Christian `anti-balaka` militias that emerged to wreak vengeance against Muslims for atrocities by ex-rebels.

World - Iran says `completing` nuclear steps agreed with IAEA


By Fredrik Dahl and Michelle Moghtader VIENNA/DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran is `in the process` of completing measures on transparency in its nuclear research that were agreed with the U.N. atomic agency, a senior Iranian official was quoted as saying, suggesting Tehran had at least partly met a Monday deadline for cooperation. Atomic energy chief Ali Akbar Salehi did not give details in remarks reported by the official IRNA news agency. Those remarks came a few days after diplomatic sources in Vienna told Reuters the U.N. watchdog`s investigation into suspected atomic bomb research by Iran appeared to be making only limited headway. Western officials say Iran must address the questions of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
