Friend of Boston bomb suspect may get 7-year term in plea deal

BOSTON (Reuters) - A friend of accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev pleaded guilty on Thursday to charges of hindering the investigation into the blasts in a deal with prosecutors that calls for a prison sentence of up to seven years. Dias Kadyrbayev, a 20-year-old Kazakh national, had been scheduled to go on trial next month and was facing up to 25 years in prison on charges of conspiracy and obstruction of justice for removing a backpack and other evidence from Tsarnaevs dormitory room in the days after the bombing. #facebook #France #Arabic #Middle East #markets #Argentina #Latin America #Conspiracy #Massachusetts #opinion

Senior Hamas official says group abducted Israeli teens

RAMALLAH West Bank (Reuters) - A top Hamas official said members of his militant group kidnapped three Israeli teenagers whose deaths in June provoked a spiral of violence that led to the war in Gaza, the first acknowledgement of the movement's involvement. Hamas, which controls Gaza, has up to now refused to confirm or deny Israeli accusations that it masterminded the abduction and killing of the three young men, one of them a joint U.S.-Israeli citizen, in Hebron #facebook #United States #Business #Brazil #Arabic #Russia #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Global warming #article

Sacked Taiwan official says probe could damage China ties

TAIPEI (Reuters) - A former Taiwan official involved in talks with mainland China until he was sacked said on Thursday any investigation into his handling of relations could damage ties with Beijing. Chang Hsien-yao, who until last week was the vice chairman of the Mainland Affairs Council, Taiwan's government agency responsible for cross-strait relations, has been under investigation by the council and judicial authorities over what the council said was possible wrongdoing. China and Taiwan have been ruled separately since defeated Nationalist forces fled to the island at the end of a civil war in 1949, and China has never renounced the use of force to bring it under Beijing's control. #India #Brazil #Technology #Arabic #Russia #Argentina #United Kingdom #Taiwan #Latin America #Entertainment #opinion #article
