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. #United States #India #Business #Japan #Brazil #France #Arabic #opinion

Turkey says no ransom paid for release of hostages held by Islamic State

ISTANBUL (Reuters) President Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday no ransom had been paid for the release of Turkish hostages held by Islamic State but he declined to be drawn on whether their release freed Turkey's hand to take a more active stance against the insurgents. Turkish intelligence agents brought 46 hostages seized by Islamic State militants in northern Iraq back to Turkey on Saturday after more than three months in captivity, in what Erdogan described as a covert rescue operation. #facebook #India #China #Brazil #Technology #France #Security #Argentina #United Kingdom #opinion

Defeated nationalist leader says Scots 'tricked' out of independence

MANCHESTER England (Reuters) Alex Salmond, the defeated leader of Scotland's nationalists, on Sunday accused Prime Minister David Cameron and other London politicians of tricking Scottish voters out of independence by making a false "vow" about granting them new powers. Salmond, who is stepping down as leader of the proindependence Scottish National Party (SNP) after spearheading a failed campaign for Scotland to leave the United Kingdom, said Britain's three main political parties had won last Thursday's referendum vote by 5545 percent by deception. "I think the vow was something cooked up in desperation for the last few days of the campaign and I think everyone in Scotland now realises that," said Salmond, referring to a pledge made by Cameron and other leaders two days before the referendum to rapidly expand Scottish autonomy in the event of a "No" vote #facebook #China #Japan #Brazil #Technology #France #Arabic #markets #Latin America #Mexico
