World - Libya Islamists say they shot down jet of rival forces

Libyan jihadists said Friday they downed a plane belonging to forces of a rogue general, but a source close to the officer said it crashed because of a technical fault. The military aircraft came down in Al-Baida in eastern Libya after carrying out air strikes targeting Islamists in Derna farther east, a spokesman for general Khalifa Haftar said. Haftar in May launched an offensive dubbed `Operation Dignity` against radical Islamists in Benghazi, Libya`s second city and birthplace of the 2011 uprising that toppled dictator Moamer Kadhafi. Ansar al-Sharia is based in Benghazi and is said to control 80 percent of the city.

World - Britain raises its terrorism threat level over Syria, Iraq

By Michael Holden LONDON (Reuters) - Britain raised its international terrorism threat level to the second highest level of `severe` on Friday in response to possible attacks being planned in Syria and Iraq, Home Secretary (interior minister) Theresa May said. `That means that a terrorist attack is highly likely, but there is no intelligence to suggest that an attack is imminent,` May said in a statement. `The increase in the threat level is related to developments in Syria and Iraq where terrorist groups are planning attacks against the West. Some of those plots are likely to involve foreign fighters who have traveled there from the UK and Europe to take part in those conflicts.` It is the first time since mid-2011 that Britain has been placed on this grade of alert following an assessment carried out by the Joint Terrorism Analysis Center, the body responsible for setting the national threat level.

World - Ukraine in critical need of second IMF aid tranche: PM

Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk urged the International Monetary Fund on Friday to release the next tranche of a $17 billion loan and bemoaned the heavy cost of fighting a pro-Russian rebellion in the east. Ukraine has complied with conditions for the two-year aid package, which is intended to shore up depleted foreign currency reserves and support the state budget, but the country faces risks due to the eastern conflict, the IMF has said. Ukrainian troops and pro-Russian rebels have been fighting since April in the heavily industrialized regions of Donetsk and Luhansk, which together contributed nearly 17 percent of Ukrainian gross domestic product in 2013. Analysts have said the Ukrainian economy will slide deeper into recession this year, despite the IMF aid deal, as the rebellion cripples activity in the industrial east and scares off foreign investors.

World - Britain raises terror threat level on Iraq, Syria fears

British Home Secretary Theresa May said Friday the country`s terror threat risk level was being raised to `severe` due to fears over the situation in Iraq and Syria. `The increase in the threat level is related to developments in Syria and Iraq where terrorist groups are planning attacks against the West,` May said. The `severe` threat level means an attack is `highly likely`, although May added there was no intelligence to suggest that an attack was imminent. The threat level is now at the second highest level out of five possible categories and is at its highest since July 2011.

World - Number of Syrian refugees tops three million mark, UN says

`Syria`s intensifying refugee crisis will today surpass a record three million people,` the UN`s refugee agency said in a statement, adding that the number did not include hundreds of thousands of others who fled without registering as refugees. Less than a year ago, the number of registered Syrian refugees stood at two million, UNHCR said, pointing to reports of `increasingly horrifying conditions inside the country` to explain the surge. The increasingly fragmented conflict raging in Syria has claimed more than 191,000 lives since erupting in March 2011. In addition to the refugees, the violence has also displaced 6.5 million people within the country, meaning that nearly 50 percent of all Syrians have been forced to flee their homes, UNHCR said.

World - Syrian refugees top 3 million, half of all Syrians displaced: U.N.

By Stephanie Nebehay GENEVA (Reuters) - Three million Syrian refugees will have registered in neighboring countries as of Friday, an exodus that began in March 2011 and shows no sign of abating, the United Nations said. The record figure is one million refugees more than a year ago, while a further 6.5 million are displaced within Syria, meaning that `almost half of all Syrians have now been forced to abandon their homes and flee for their lives`, it said. `The Syrian crisis has become the biggest humanitarian emergency of our era, yet the world is failing to meet the needs of refugees and the countries hosting them,` Antonio Guterres, U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, said in a statement. The vast majority remain in neighboring countries, with the highest concentrations in Lebanon (1.14 million), Turkey (815,000) and Jordan (608,000), the UNHCR said.
