World - Iraq forces take full control of Fallujah

Iraqi forces took the Islamic State group`s last positions in the city of Fallujah Sunday, establishing full control over one of the jihadists` most emblematic bastions after a month-long operation. Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi had already declared victory on June 17 after IS defences collapsed, with Iraqi forces facing only limited resistance in subsequent clearing operations. The offensive saw tens of thousands of civilians risk death to flee their homes, leaving Iraq to grapple with a humanitarian crisis as its forces prepare to attack the last remaining major IS hub of Mosul.

World - New law: Kuwaitis who insult emir can`t run for office

The amendment to the electoral law would prevent dozens of opposition figures, including jailed former MP Mussallam al-Barrak, from standing in next year`s election. In the past few years, courts handed down various jail terms against opposition activists for insulting the emir, Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah, or undermining his authority. Barrak, secretary general of the nationalist Popular Action Movement, is serving his second year in jail after he was convicted of insulting the emir in a speech at a public rally in 2012.

World - Japan says ageing nuclear reactors can stay on line

Japanese regulators said Monday that two ageing nuclear reactors can stay on line for up to 20 more years -- the first such exception under tighter safety rules imposed after the 2011 Fukushima crisis. Environmental group Greenpeace criticised the decision, saying earthquake risks were being ignored. Japan shut down dozens of reactors after a magnitude 9.0 earthquake-generated tsunami on March 11, 2011 triggered meltdowns at the Fukushima nuclear plant in the northeast, the world`s worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl in 1986.

World - Boston mobster `Whitey` Bulger`s possessions fetch $100,000 at auction

Former mob boss James `Whitey` Bulger`s personal possessions - including a pen holder designed to look like a rat and a three-carat, heart-shaped diamond ring - fetched more than $100,000 at an auction in Boston on Saturday. Law enforcement officials sold off hundreds of items seized when federal agents captured the fugitive mobster in an apartment in Santa Monica, California, in 2011. Bulger, 86, ruled Boston`s criminal underworld for a quarter-century before going on the lam after a corrupt FBI agent alerted him that he was about to be arrested.

World - Russia planes pound Aleppo as Syria army closes in

Russian and Syrian warplanes pounded rebel-held areas of divided second city Aleppo on Saturday as government forces closed in on the rebels` sole remaining supply line, a monitoring group said. Aleppo, which was Syria`s commercial and manufacturing hub before civil war broke out in 2011, has been a key battleground ever since rebels seized eastern neighbourhoods of the city the following year. The Russian strikes focused on the Castello Road, the only remaining route out of the rebel-held east of the city, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Business - Worst day in 10 months as Wall Street reacts to `Brexit`

The S&P 500 turned negative for the year-to-date on Friday as Wall Street suffered its largest selloff in 10 months after Britain`s decision to leave the European Union caught traders wrong-footed. `Expect weaker investment and thereby slower economic growth to persist during the 2-3 year negotiations to leave the European Union,` Deutsche Bank economists said in a Friday note. The decline during regular market hours seemed more orderly, but the S&P 500 financial sector posted its largest percentage decline since November 2011, tumbling 5.4 percent.
