US-Iran tensions rise ahead of anniversary of deal pullout

A sudden White House announcement that a U.S. aircraft carrier and a bomber wing would be deployed in the Persian Gulf to counter Iran comes just days ahead of the anniversary of President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw America from Tehran's nuclear deal. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is said to be planning a speech Wednesday on the anniversary to discuss the next steps Tehran will take in confronting the U.S. Officials in the Islamic Republic previously warned that Iran might increase its uranium enrichment, potentially pulling away from a deal it has sought to salvage for months. The military has...

Istanbul mayoral candidates to face off in rare debate

The two leading contenders for Istanbul mayor are set to face off in a debate a week before a repeated city election. The debate between Binali Yildirim, the candidate from Turkey's ruling Justice and Development Party, or AKP, and secular opposition candidate Ekrem Imamoglu of the Republican People's Party, or CHP, was to be broadcast live on Sunday. Imamoglu, a former district mayor, narrowly won a March 31 election. But Turkey's election authority annulled the vote after the Justice and Development Party challenged the result, citing a breach of voting regulations. Televised election debates are uncommon in Turkey. The last...

Israel moves to name Golan settlement after Trump

The Trump name graces apartment towers, hotels and golf courses. Now it is the namesake of a tiny Israeli settlement in the Israel-controlled Golan Heights. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Cabinet convened in this hamlet Sunday to inaugurate a new settlement named after President Donald Trump in a gesture of appreciation for the U.S. leader's recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the territory. The settlement isn't exactly new. Currently known as Bruchim, it is over 30 years old and has a population of 10 people. Israel is hoping the rebranded "Ramat Trump," Hebrew for "Trump Heights," will encourage a wave of...

Sudan's Bashir appears in public for first time since ouster

Sudan's former President Omar al-Bashir appeared in public on Sunday for the first time since his ouster, as he was led away to a prosecutor's office in a corruption probe. The deposed strongman has been held under arrest in the capital, Khartoum, since the military removed him from power in April amid mass protests against his 30-year rule. A judicial official with the prosecutor's office said al-Bashir was questioned over corruption accusations that include money laundering and the possession of large amounts of foreign currency without legal grounds. He said the probe partly related to millions of dollars worth of...

London needs a new mayor, Khan is a disaster: Trump

US President Donald Trump launched a fresh attack Saturday on London Mayor Sadiq Khan, backing a right-wing British columnist who has been widely accused of Islamophobia and once called migrants "cockroaches." Trump attached his latest denunciation of the mayor to a retweet by Katie Hopkins about crime in "Khan's Londonistan" - using a term widely perceived as a pejorative reference to the British capital's Muslim population and Khan's Pakistan ancestry. "LONDON needs a new mayor ASAP. Khan is a disaster - will only get worse!" Trump wrote in response to Hopkins' tweet, later adding the mayor was "a national disgrace...

Israeli PM Netanyahu's wife sentenced for misusing state funds

The wife of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked a court Sunday to approve a plea bargain convicting her of fraudulently using state funds for meals, an AFP reporter said. Under the charges in an amended indictment, Sara Netanyahu would plead guilty to exploiting the mistake of another person and pay a fine along with compensation, but graft charges against her would be dropped. In a small room at the Jerusalem magistrates' court, packed with journalists, Netanyahu told the judge she was aware of the charges. Her lawyer and a prosecutor asked justice Avital Chen to accept the deal. "As...
