Detained Americans in North Korea seek U.S. help in American media interviews

SEOUL/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Three American citizens detained in North Korea appealed to the U.S government on Monday for help returning home, speaking in rare interviews with U.S. media that were set up by the North Korean government and may signal an attempt by Pyongyang to reopen a long-stalled dialogue. The three men, one serving a 15-year sentence and two awaiting trial in the isolated country, spoke to CNN and the Associated Press in tightly controlled circumstances. #Yahoo! #content #typeof-social #values #rco #rch #typeof-registered #cnt

New eruption at Iceland volcano prompts highest aviation warning

REYKJAVIK/STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - A new eruption in Iceland's Bardarbunga volcano system spewed lava more than 50 metres in the air on Sunday prompting authorities to raise their warning of the risk of ash to aviation to the highest level on Sunday. Iceland's largest volcanic system, which cuts a 190 km long and up to 25 km wide (118 miles by 15.5 miles) swathe across the North Atlantic island, has been hit by thousands of earthquakes over the last two weeks and scientists have been on high alert. In 2010, an ash cloud from the Eyjafjallajokull volcano, in a different region of Iceland, closed much of Europe's air space for six days. #Yahoo! #content #wcnts #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #values #aut #cnt

Russia sees West changing tack on Syria, urges engagement with Assad

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Monday urged Western and Arab governments to overcome their distaste for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and engage with him to fight Islamic State insurgents. In comments likely to irritate Washington, Lavrov said the United States had made the same mistake with Islamic State as it had with al Qaeda, which emerged in the 1980s when U.S.-backed Islamist insurgents were fighting the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. "I think Western politicians are already realising the growing and fast-spreading threat of terrorism," Lavrov said, referring to Islamic State advances in Syria and Iraq #Yahoo! #wcnts #typeof-social #undefined #cookie #rco #rch #typeof-registered

Bombs kill at least 35 across Iraq a day after mosque shooting

BAGHDAD/ARBIL Iraq (Reuters) - Bombings across Iraq killed at least 35 people in attacks that appeared to be revenge for an assault on a Sunni mosque that has deepened sectarian conflict. A bomb also exploded in the northern city of Arbil on Saturday, a rare attack unsettling the relative stability the capital of the semi-autonomous Kurdish region has enjoyed. Local television footage showed firefighters dousing the charred remains of a car in Arbil. #content #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #cookie #values #rco #aut #rch #typeof-registered
