Israel’s Netanyahu draws rebuke from Obama over Iran speech to Congress

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned the United States on Tuesday that it was negotiating a bad deal with Iran that could spark a "nuclear nightmare," drawing a rebuke from President Barack Obama and exposing a deepening U.S.-Israeli rift. Delivering duelling messages within hours of each other, Netanyahu made his case against Obama's Iran diplomacy in a speech to Congress that aligned himself with the president's Republican foes. Obama responded in the Oval Office, declaring in a frustrated tone that Netanyahu offered "nothing new." In its response, the Iranian government denounced Netanyahu's 39-minute speech as "boring and repetitive," the state news agency IRNA said #aut #cnt #cookie #rch #rco #typeof-social #values #wcnts #Yahoo!

Five dead in Qaeda suicide attack on Houthis in central Yemen

SANAA (Reuters) - Five people were killed in an al Qaeda suicide attack on a Houthi outpost in central Yemen on Tuesday, the Defence Ministry said, highlighting the volatility of a country torn by militant and sectarian violence. The United States and its Gulf allies fear the spread of militant and sectarian violence in Yemen -- situated between oil giant Saudi Arabia and an important Red Sea shipping lane -- will push the country towards a civil war and unravel the state's already limited control over its territory. The ministry's news website said five people were also wounded in Tuesday's attack by a suicide bomber who detonated a vehicle laden with explosives on a youth centre used by the Houthi militia as an outpost in the city of al-Baydah. #Arabic #author #facebook #India #Latin America #markets #Mexico #opinion
