Iran summons Western diplomats over parade attack killing 25

Militants disguised as soldiers opened fire on an annual Iranian military parade in the country's oil-rich southwest, killing at least 25 people and wounding over 60 in the deadliest terror attack to strike the country in nearly a decade. Women and children scattered along with once-marching Revolutionary Guard soldiers as heavy gunfire rang out Saturday at the parade in Ahvaz, the chaos captured live on state television. The region's Arab separatists, once only known for nighttime attacks on unguarded oil pipelines, claimed responsibility for the brazen assault and Iranian officials appeared to believe the claim. Iran summoned diplomats from Britain,...

What to expect from the UN General Assembly

President Trump joins dozens of world leaders in New York this week for the United Nations General Assembly, a jam-packed series of diplomatic meetings and speeches. It's no longer Trump's first time at the U.N., so the questions of what kind of impact he'll have on this world stage have evaporated. But they've been replaced by what could be a dramatic week of jockeying in a world disrupted by Trump, with both American allies and adversaries scrambling to reshape relationships and fend for themselves. It's also a world largely more peaceful, but torn apart in different regions by civil wars...

Gunmen kill at least 24 in attack on annual military parade in Iran

TEHRAN, Iran -- Gunmen attacked an annual Iranian military parade Saturday in the country's oil-rich southwest, killing at least 24 people and wounding 53 others, local media reported.

Tunisia’s premier unlikely to push reform as polls loom

Tunisian Prime Minister Youssef Chahed has survived attempts by his own party and unions to force him out but, with elections looming, looks less and less able to enact the economic reforms that have so far secured IMF support for an ailing economy. Last week, the Nidaa Tounes party suspended Chahed after a campaign by the party chairman, who is the son of President Beji Caid Essebsi. Chahed has gathered enough support in Parliament to stave off a possible vote of no confidence by working with the co-ruling Islamist Ennahda party and a number of other lawmakers including 10 Nidaa...

They also experienced a number of terrible things after they fled. And finally, they are troubled by the catastrophic living situation in the camp itself. It is entirely overcrowded. You have to imagine, sometimes mothers with two or three children are forced to live in...
