Iraqi factions hit new delay in forming government

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq's parliament failed on Sunday to break a political deadlock that is holding up the formation of a new government to tackle an Islamist-led insurgency raging less than 50 miles (80 km) from Baghdad. After a brief session, parliamentary officials put off until Tuesday efforts to reach agreement between Shi'ite, Sunni and Kurdish politicians on the posts of prime minister, president and parliamentary speaker. #facebook #India #China #Japan #Brazil #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #Argentina #Latin America #Mexico

China's Guangdong offers big rewards for terrorism informants

BEIJING (Reuters) - Police in China's southern Guangdong province are offering up to $80,000 for tips about terrorism suspects and potential attacks, state media said on Sunday, announcing some of the biggest rewards yet in a nationwide "anti-terror" campaign. China launched the year-long crackdown in May after a series of attacks that authorities have blamed on separatists and Islamist militants from the westerly Xinjiang region, home to the Muslim Uighur ethnic minority. Under the Guangdong plan, informants' rewards will be based on the "value of the information in preventing terrorist attacks or catching suspects", the official Xinhua news agency said. #United States #India #Brazil #France #Arabic #Middle East #Italy #Entertainment
