France, Saudi Arabia: Iran nuclear deal must avoid destabilising region| Reuters

RIYADH (Reuters) - France and Saudi Arabia said on Monday any future deal between Iran and major powers had to ensure that it did not destabilise the region further and threaten Iran's neighbours, the two countries said in a joint statement ahead of a summit in Riyadh. Saudi Arabia invited French President Francois Hollande, whose country is deemed to have a tough stance in Iran nuclear negotiations, to Riyadh to discuss regional issues with Gulf Arab states who fear a rapprochement with Tehran could lead to further destabilisation in the region #Economy #United States #India #Middle East #science #Copyright #Entertainment #Mexico

Boston bomber's brother voiced a 'rage of hatred,' court hears| Reuters

BOSTON (Reuters) - Convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's brother frightened at least one relative during a visit to Russia in 2012 when he espoused radical Islamist beliefs, a family member said on Monday. Several of Tsarnaev's relatives appeared in federal court in Boston to testify at the second phase of his trial, where a jury will determine whether Tsarnaev is sentenced to death for killing three people and wounding 264 in the April 15, 2013, bombing attack on Boston's best-attended sporting event. Defence attorneys have been trying to paint the 21-year-old bomber as a secondary player in an attack conceived and led by his 26-year-old brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who died after a gunfight with police four days after the bombing. #Sports #United States #France #Middle East #science #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #Copyright #Entertainment #Mexico #lifestyle

LAHORE, Pakistan (Reuters) - A Pakistani election tribunal expelled a senior minister and ally of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif from parliament on Monday for vote rigging in a 2013 election, a decision the opposition said vindicated its complaints.
