Iraqi PM orders easier access to Baghdad's Green Zone as protests surge| Reuters

BAGHDAD Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi on Friday ordered security forces to ease access to Baghdad's fortified Green Zone and main streets, in an apparent bid to improve daily life for ordinary Iraqis as fresh protests erupted across the country. The capital and many southern cities have witnessed demonstrations in recent weeks calling for provision of basic services, the trial of corrupt politicians, and the shakeup of a system riddled with graft and incompetence. Tens of thousands of demonstrators filled Baghdad's Tahrir Square on Friday in what a senior security official called the biggest protest of the summer #India #Islam #Technology #Crime #Latin America #crisis #Entertainment

Syria's Assad signals little hope for alliance against Islamic State| Reuters

BEIRUT Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said he was open to the idea of a coalition against Islamic State but indicated there was little chance of it happening with his enemies, casting further doubt on a Russian plan to forge an alliance against the militant group. The initiative proposed by Russia, a vital ally of Assad, would involve the Syrian government joining regional states that have backed Syrian rebels in a shared fight against the Islamic State group that controls wide areas of Syria and Iraq. In an interview broadcast on Tuesday, Assad said the Syrian government would not reject such an alliance, though it made no sense "that states which stood with terrorism would be the states that will fight terrorism" #United States #Islam #Europe #markets #Latin America #opinion
