Libyan PM hopes for agreement with rivals on Thursday| Reuters

VALLETTA The internationally recognised prime minister of Libya said he hoped to reach a power-sharing peace agreement on Thursday with his rivals during U.N.-backed talks that seek to end a conflict that threatens to break up the country. Libya has two governments and parliaments, with the recognised government operating out of the country's east since an armed alliance known as Libya Dawn took over the capital Tripoli, in the west, and declared its own government last year. Abdullah al-Thinni, who leads the government based in the eastern city of Tobruk, flew to Malta on Wednesday for talks with the Maltese prime minister, Joseph Muscat. #Economy #United States #Middle East #Argentina #United Kingdom #Entertainment

More than 100 dead as militants, Egyptian army clash in North Sinai| Reuters

ISMAILIA, Egypt/CAIRO Egypt's army said on Wednesday more than 100 militants and 17 soldiers were killed in simultaneous attacks on military checkpoints in North Sinai, in the most sustained fighting of its kind in years in the restive province. After a day of fighting, which involved F-16 jets and Apache helicopters, the army said it would not stop its operations until it had cleared the area of all "terrorist concentrations". Islamic State's Egyptian affiliate, Sinai Province, had claimed responsibility, saying it attacked more than 15 security sites and carried out three suicide bombings. #United States #India #Technology #Israel #markets #Africa

Analysis - Talk of Syria action may be Erdogan's latest gambit to pressure the West| Reuters

ANKARA Alarmed by Syrian Kurds' advances against Islamic State, and irked by Western reluctance to tackle Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, President Tayyip Erdogan has once again raised the prospect of a Turkish military intervention in Syria. Such a move would risk alienating the West when confidence in Turkey has been already shaken by Erdogan's authoritarian tendencies and a slowdown in growth, and also prevent the AK Party that he founded forming a coalition with the main opposition party. But Erdogan's drum-beating may be a gambit aimed at influencing the U.S.-led coalition in Syria, and bolstering his popularity at home after a major election setback for the AKP. #Business #United States #Syria #markets #Turkey #crisis #opinion

KKK plans South Carolina rally as Confederate flag debate intensifies| Reuters

The Ku Klux Klan plans to hold a pro-Confederate flag rally at the South Carolina Capitol, where a statue of a former state governor who championed white supremacy was vandalised on Tuesday amid scrutiny of symbols associated with slavery. The Civil War-era flag and related monuments have become flashpoints after a shooting killed nine people at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina. The suspected shooter, Dylann Roof, a 21-year-old white man, had posed with a Confederate flag in photos posted on a website that displayed a racist manifesto attributed to him #United States #markets #Crime #Latin America #Entertainment #author
