Gaza war rages on, Hamas says Israel tried to kill its military chief

Smoke rises following what witnesses said was an Israeli air strike in GazaBy Nidal al-Mughrabi and Maayan Lubell GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - An Israeli air strike in Gaza killed the wife and infant son of Hamas's military leader, Mohammed Deif, the group said, calling it an attempt to assassinate him after a ceasefire collapsed. Palestinians launched more than 130 rockets, mainly at southern Israel, with some intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile system, the military said. Israeli aircraft have carried out 80 strikes in the Gaza Strip since Tuesday, "targeting terror sites", the military said. Hamas and medical officials said 19 people died in the latest Israeli raids, including Deif's wife and seven-month-old son.

Ukrainian servicemen sit atop an armoured personnel carrier as they are transported to a military base in the eastern Ukrainian town of KramatorskBy Richard Balmforth KIEV (Reuters) - Ukrainian forces fought street battles with separatist rebels in the eastern town of Ilovaisk overnight into Wednesday as they sought to isolate rebel strongholds near the Russian border, an Interior Ministry official said. Nine pro-Ukrainian volunteer fighters, supporting Kiev's forces, were killed in the fighting in Ilovaisk, which lies part way along the road from Donetsk, the region's main hub, and the border with Russia, the official, Anton Gerashchenko, said. Separately, health authorities said 34 civilians had been killed as a result of fighting in the 24 hours up to noon Wednesday in the wider Donetsk region, one of two big provinces of Ukraine's industrial east. Local authorities in the big eastern city of Luhansk said the city rocked with the crash of artillery fire and heavy automatic fire on Wednesday as government forces kept up an assault on rebels who have occupied key buildings there since April, when the separatist rebellions erupted.



Pakistan cleric's supporters attempt to blockade parliament, but MPs escape

Supporters of Mohammad Tahir ul-Qadri, Sufi cleric and leader of political party Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT), sleep at the entrance of the parliament house in IslamabadBy Katharine Houreld and Syed Raza Hassan ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Thousands of Pakistani protesters tried to blockade parliament on Wednesday after an anti-government cleric told them not to allow anyone in or out, with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif inside at the time, but the lawmakers left by a back entrance. The protesters have taken to the streets of Islamabad for five days, led by cricket star turned opposition leader Imran Khan and cleric Tahir ul-Qadri, who runs a network of Islamic schools and charities. The Supreme Court summoned both to appear before the court on Thursday. Its civilian government is struggling to assert its authority after decades when the country swung between democracy and military rule.



Exclusive: Brazil's PSDB party would support Silva in runoff

File photo of former Senator Silva attending a plenary voting session of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal in BrasiliaBy Brian Winter SAO PAULO (Reuters) - The Brazilian Social Democracy Party (PSDB), the country's biggest opposition group, would formally support environmentalist Marina Silva in a runoff vote for the presidency if its own candidate fails to qualify, a party source told Reuters. Such an alliance would reduce President Dilma Rousseff's chances of winning a second term by bringing together large, disparate groups of voters who are clamoring for change after more than a decade of Workers' Party rule. "Brazil needs a change, a renewal. It cannot tolerate four more years" under Rousseff, the well-placed PSDB source said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Firefighter trucks are seen next to a damaged building after an explosion at a factory in ZhoushanChinese police have arrested three people in connection with an explosion at an auto parts plant that killed 75 people in China's worst industrial accident in a year, state media said on Wednesday.

It was reported Tueday Aug. 19, 2014 that thousands of small intense earthquakes are rocking Iceland amid concerns that one of the country’s volcanoes may be close to erupting.

The Zaidi Shiites are the minority community in mainly Sunni Yemen but they form the majority in the northern highlands, including the Sanaa region. In a bid to stem the crisis, President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi called for dialogue with the rebels and invited representatives to join a "unity government".

Has Hamas military chief, Mohammed Deif, escaped death again?
By Nidal al-Mughrabi and Maayan Lubell GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Mohammed Deif, the shadowy leader of Hamas's armed wing in Gaza, appears to have narrowly survived a fifth attempt to assassinate him, allowing the mastermind of the six-week war on Israel to pursue the conflict from his network of tunnels. Badly hurt in repeated attacks over the past decade, Deif is believed to spend most of his time underground, overseeing the winding tunnels that have been painstakingly built over the past six years and were used to burrow into and attack Israel. Deif was not there, according to Hamas, but his current whereabouts were not clear. Hamas's military wing said it would "make an important announcement" later on Wednesday, but did not mention Deif.
