Islamic State settles into Ramadi, but the lull unlikely to last| Reuters

BAGHDAD The blind man with just one hand arrived at the main mosque in the centre of the Iraqi city of Ramadi at dusk on Wednesday, flanked by Islamic State fighters. When the evening prayer was over, the man, whose head was shrouded in black, delivered a speech to the faithful, hailing the Islamic State's capture of the capital of Anbar Province -- its greatest victory over Iraqi forces in almost a year. Ali Attiya al-Jubouri, widely known as "the blind judge", is one of Islamic State's most senior figures and his presence in the mosque signalled the group's dominance over the city, which it seized on May 17 from hapless government forces. #Business #Economy #India #Syria #France #markets #Africa #Copyright #Iraq #Mexico #opinion

BUJUMBURA The European Union and Burundi's influential Roman Catholic Church on Thursday pulled out from observing elections in the African country, saying that next month's vote cannot be fair because of daily unrest and a crackdown on media. More than a month of demonstrations against President Pierre Nkurunziza's decision to seek a third term in office has sparked the biggest political crisis since an ethnically-charged civil war ended in Burundi in 2005. #Business #Economy #Health #Africa #Italy #Argentina #Entertainment #opinion

A smuggler then gives a signal and the migrants scramble onto a white Toyota Hilux, jostling for a place on the 1,200-km journey to Sabha in southern Libya a route plagued by bandits and the pitiless desert sun.
