Pakistan crisis puts army back in the driving seat

Pakistan crisis puts army back in the driving seat

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - As tens of thousands of protesters advanced on the Pakistani capital last week to demand his resignation, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif dispatched two emissaries to consult with the army chief. He wanted to know if the military was quietly engineering the twin protest movements by cricket star-turned-politician Imran Khan and activist cleric Tahir ul-Qadri, or if, perhaps, it was preparing to stage a coup. According to a government insider with a first-hand account of the meeting, Sharif's envoys returned with good news and bad: there will be no coup, but if he wants his government to survive, from now on it will have to "share space with the army". #India #Business #Army #Government #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #military #Mexico #generals

Netanyahu orders military to strike Gaza after rockets fired

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday ordered the military to attack in the Gaza Strip in response to rockets fired from the enclave into Israel, a government source said, hours before a truce between the sides was set to expire.

The Israeli military said three rockets fired from Gaza hit near the Israeli city of Beersheba, causing no casualties. #United States #Business #Japan #France #Arabic #Russia #Italy #United Kingdom #Entertainment #Mexico #opinion
