Iran's Khamenei says U.S., Israel playing 'good cop, bad cop'

DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said the United States and Israel were playing "good cop, bad cop" to intimidate his country into making concessions on the nuclear dispute with the West.

Yemeni air force bombs Shi'ite rebels after ceasefire collapses

SANAA (Reuters) - The Yemeni air force bombed Shi'ite Muslim fighters north of Sanaa on Saturday in fighting that caused "a large number of casualties", local officials said, after a truce reached last month between the insurgents and government forces collapsed.

Iraqi Islamic State leader purported to make public appearance

DUBAI (Reuters) - A man purported to be the reclusive leader of the militant Islamic State has made what would be his first public appearance at the grand mosque in Iraq's second city, Mosul, according to a video recording posted on the Internet on Saturday. The 21-minute video came after reports on social media that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi would make his first public appearance since his Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) changed its name to the Islamic State and declared him caliph - a title held by successors of the Prophet Mohammad. If confirmed it would be the first public appearance by the head of the militant group that led a military offensive last month that saw swathes of northern Iraq fall to ISIL and other Sunni armed factions #wcnts #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #values #rco #typeof-registered #cnt

Japan poised to ease constitution's limits on military in landmark shift

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's cabinet is expected on Tuesday to end a ban that has kept the military from fighting abroad since World War Two, a major shift away from post-war pacifism and a political victory for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe who has pursued the change despite some public opposition. The move, seen by some as the biggest shift in defense policy since Japan set up its post-war armed forces in 1954, would end a ban on exercising "collective self-defense", or aiding a friendly country under attack. It would also relax limits on activities in U.N.-led peace-keeping operations and "grey zone" incidents that fall short of full-scale war, according to a draft cabinet resolution. #Yahoo! #content #wcnts #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #cookie #values #rch #typeof-registered #cnt
