Blast in Syria kills top al Qaeda commander, three others

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Al Qaeda's official Syrian wing, the Nusra Front, announced on Thursday the death of its top military commander, who insurgent sources said fell victim to a blast targeting a high-level militant meeting. General Military Commander Abu Humam al-Shami, a veteran of Islamist militant fighting in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria, was the senior-most member of the group to die in the Syria war, an insurgent source said. Insurgent sources said a U.S.-led coalition air strike hit the meeting in the northwestern province of Idlib, but a coalition spokesman said it had not conducted air strikes in the province during the past 24 hours #Yahoo! #content #wcnts #wcntn #typeof-social #aut #rch #cnt

Ukraine's coal pits: dangerous in peace time, deadlier in war

DONETSK, Ukraine (Reuters) - Ivan Lazarenko, one of those pulled out alive after an explosion at a mine near the frontline in rebel-held east Ukraine killed 33 workers, lay in hospital on Thursday, still unconscious and in bandages. If he recovers, it will not be the first time this year he had escaped death at the mine: he was trapped once in an elevator when the mine was hit by incoming fire, cutting power in the pit, said his wife Tatyana Kosenko. #Yahoo! #content #wcnts #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #cookie #values #rco #aut #typeof-registered #cnt
