"Highway of Heroes" bears slain Canadian soldier home

HAMILTON Ontario (Reuters) - The body of a Canadian soldier shot dead while guarding the country's war memorial in Ottawa returned to his hometown on Friday, after thousands of his countrymen paid tribute along the nation's "Highway of Heroes."

Libyan army claims control of large Islamist camp in Benghazi

BENGHAZI Libya (Reuters) - Libya's army and its allies have taken control of one of the largest camps of Islamist forces in the eastern city of Benghazi, military officials said on Friday. Gaining control of the camp, the first to be set up by rebels who helped topple Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, would mark further significant progress for the army after taking Benghazi's airport. Libya is divided between rival tribes and political factions with two governments vying for legitimacy since an armed group from the western city of Misrata seized Tripoli in August, forcing the internationally-recognized Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni to move to the east. #facebook #India #Japan #Brazil #Arabic #Army #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #opinion

Slain Canadian soldier heads home on "Highway of Heroes"

OTTAWA (Reuters) - The body of a Canadian soldier shot dead while guarding the country's war memorial in Ottawa began the journey to his hometown on Friday, in a last ride along the nation's "Highway of Heroes." Police said a home-grown radical, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, killed Corporal Nathan Cirillo, 24, on Wednesday before fleeing into the Parliament building where he was shot dead near where Prime Minister Stephen Harper was meeting with lawmakers. Mourners and supporters lined portions of a roughly 500-kilometer (310-mile) route along Lake Ontario where a black hearse accompanied by police vehicles was due to travel to the soldier's home in Hamilton, Ontario. Comrades from Cirillo's unit, the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, dressed in ceremonial kilts, white boots and garters, carried his flag-draped coffin from an Ottawa funeral home to the hearse while bagpipes played #facebook #United States #India #Japan #Arabic #markets #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico
