PARIS (Reuters) - In accusing magistrates of persecuting him, former French president Nicolas Sarkozy is taking on an old enemy in a fight that could hurt both politicians and judges, fuelling a sense of public disenchantment with France's ruling elite. Sarkozy's hopes of winning back power suffered a heavy blow when, after 15 hours in police custody, he was placed under formal investigation on July 2, suspected of using his influence to gain details of a probe into his 2007 election campaign. #Argentina #Business #facebook #French #Latin America #Legal #markets #opinion #Russia #United Kingdom #United States

Insurgents attack town north of Baghdad

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Sunni Islamist insurgents who control large parts of northern Iraq attacked a town north of Baghdad early on Sunday, seizing local government buildings, police and witnesses said. They said militants in 50 to 60 vehicles stormed the town of Dhuluiya, about 70 km (45 miles) north of Baghdad at 3.30 am (0030 GMT), taking the mayor's office and municipal council building and fighting to take control of the police station. Insurgents led by the al Qaeda offshoot Islamic State seized swathes of Iraq's northern and western Sunni Muslim provinces in a two-day offensive last month. #Arabic #Argentina #China #Entertainment #France #markets #Mexico #opinion #Russia #United States
