Fighting rages in Yemeni capital despite accord

SANAA (Reuters) Shi'ite Houthi rebels and government forces fought for a fourth straight day in the Yemeni capital, residents said, despite the announcement of a U.N.brokered peace agreement due to be signed later on Sunday. Residents reported heavy fighting since Saturday night in an area of the capital near the headquarters of the First Armoured Division, which is loyal to an army general viewed by the Houthis as linked to hardline Sunni Islamists hostile to them. #facebook #United States #Business #Japan #Brazil #France #markets #Italy #Security #Latin America

Syrian refugee flight to Turkey one of the worst since war began U.N.

ANKARA (Reuters) Turkey is facing one of the biggest influxes of refugees from neighbouring Syria since the war there began more than three years ago, the United Nations' refugee agency said on Sunday, as civilians continued to flee clashes between Islamic State (IS) militants and Kurdish forces. IS fighters seized dozens of villages close to the border and advanced on the frontier town of Ayn alArab, known as Kobani in Kurdish, as Kurdish commanders issued a rallying cry to Turkish Kurds to join the fight. At least 70,000 people are confirmed to have crossed into Turkey in less than two days, and the real figure may be more than 100,000, Carol Batchelor, UNHCR's representative in Turkey told Reuters on Sunday. #United States #China #Business #Japan #Syria #Arabic #Russia #United Kingdom #Latin America
