World - Population of North American sage-grouse sharply declining: study

By Alex Dobuzinskis LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The number of breeding males in the greater sage-grouse population of the United States and part of Canada has declined by 56 percent in recent years, in a sign of trouble for the ground-dwelling bird, a study released on Friday showed. The study from the Pew Charitable Trusts comes as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service prepares to make a decision before the end of September on whether the bird should be protected under the Endangered Species Act. U.S. Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell announced on that a sub-species of the sage-grouse found in California and Nevada did not require protection under the Endangered Species Act. Millions of sage-grouse are believed to have once inhabited a broad expanse of the Western United States and Canada.

World - Former Yemen president calls for political dialogue to end war

Yemen`s former president Ali Abdullah Saleh called on Friday on all Yemenis to return to a political dialogue to end to the country`s conflict. Talks between Yemenis and Saudi Arabia, which has led a nearly month-long bombing campaign against the Iran-allied Houthi movement, must take place under the moderation of the United Nations in Geneva, he said. The Saudi-led coalition announced on Tuesday an end to its bombing campaign in Yemen but a Saudi spokesman said forces would continue to target the Houthis as necessary. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said the Houthis needed to stop fighting, which could lead to the end of Saudi air strikes and the opening of a political dialogue.

World - Nobel writer Vargas Llosa backs Islam critic Hirsi Ali

Nobel-winning writer Mario Vargas Llosa on Sunday praised Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a women`s rights advocate and leading critic of Islam, calling her `one of the most valuable` adversaries of `Islamic fanatics`. In a column in top-selling Spanish daily El Pais, the Peruvian hailed Hirsi Ali`s latest book `Heretic` in which she argues for a major overhaul of Islam, akin to the Protestant Reformation of the 16th century. `Islamic fanatics wanted to bring her to an end and they have not managed to do so, it is not impossible that they will keep trying as she is one of the most articulate, influential and valuable adversaries which they have in the world,` Vargas Llosa wrote. Hirsi Ali left the Netherlands for the United States in May 2006 following a bitter row which broke out when she admitted lying about her age and name in her Dutch asylum request.
