Tue, 22 Jul 2014 05:06:26 -0400
An Israeli soldier is missing in the Gaza Strip and presumed dead, local media quoted the military as saying on Tuesday, two days after the Islamist Hamas group announced they had captured a soldier during clashes. Israel's Channel 10 News said the military believed the man was killed along with six other troops in an attack on an armored vehicle on Sunday. Hamas on Sunday announced it had captured an Israeli soldier, but did not say whether he was dead or alive. Abu Ubaida, the spokesman of the Hamas's armed wing, said the soldier was seized in heavy fighting on the Gaza border on Sunday.
Israel says soldier missing, presumed dead; Kerry presses for truce
Tue, 22 Jul 2014 05:06:26 -0400
By Nidal al-Mughrabi and Maayan Lubell GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel pounded targets across the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, dashing hopes of a pause in the fighting, as the military said one of its soldiers was missing, presumed dead, following clashes with Hamas Islamists. International efforts to end the 15-day conflict gathered pace, with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry holding talks in Egypt and U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon due to arrive in Israel later in the day. Hamas and its allies fired a barrage of rockets into southern and central Israel, triggering sirens in Tel Aviv, with one missile striking a nearby town, lightly injuring two people, officials said.
Airlines body calls on governments to lead review of airspace risks
Tue, 22 Jul 2014 05:04:06 -0400
Governments should take the lead in reviewing how risk assessments for airspace are made, the head of the International Air Transport Association said, after airlines called for a summit following the downing of an airliner over Ukraine. The issue of flying over conflict zones has come into sharp focus after Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down over rebel-held territory in eastern Ukraine on Thursday, with airlines Emirates and Lufthansa calling for an international summit to discuss how the industry evaluates risk. "No effort should be spared in ensuring that this outrage is not repeated," IATA Director General Tony Tyler said in a statement on Tuesday. Geneva-based IATA represents around 200 global airlines.
Indonesia set to declare Widodo as new president
Tue, 22 Jul 2014 04:58:47 -0400
The reform-minded governor of teeming Jakarta, Joko Widodo, was Tuesday set to be named Indonesia's next president after a bitterly fought election against a controversial ex-general with deep roots in the era of strongman Suharto. With the election commission poised to announce the result, his opponent Prabowo Subianto -- who had also claimed victory in the July 9 election -- accused Widodo's team of "massive, structured and systematic fraud" and announced he was withdrawing from the process. Voters faced a stark choice between governor Widodo, from a new breed of politicians without links to the autocratic Suharto era, and former general Prabowo, a figure from the old guard with a chequered human rights record. If Widodo's victory is confirmed, it would cap a meteoric rise for the former furniture exporter who was born in a riverbank slum, and would be welcomed by investors who hope he can breathe new life into the economy after a recent slowdown.
Ukraine votes to call up more military reserves to protect border
Tue, 22 Jul 2014 04:46:26 -0400
Ukraine's parliament approved a presidential decree on Tuesday to call up more military reserves and men under 50 to fight rebels in eastern Ukraine and defend the border against a concentration of troops in Russia. Some 45 days after the latest call-up of additional reserves, which has now expired, Kiev repeated the decree to "declare and conduct partial mobilization" to ensure the ranks of what Ukraine calls its "anti-terrorist operation" are filled. After the vote, brief scuffles broke out between nationalist politicians and members of the party that was led by the former president, Viktor Yanukovich, who was overthrown in February. The army is under orders not to use air strikes and artillery in the cities, complicating operations to restore control despite Kiev's accusations that the rebels were responsible for the shooting down of a Malaysian airliner.
Injury-plagued Prior takes break from England duty
Tue, 22 Jul 2014 04:38:34 -0400
England wicketkeeper Matt Prior has decided to take a break from international duty for the rest of the season after losing form due to a series of injuries. Prior revealed his decision to step away from England action just hours after his country slumped to a 95-run defeat in the second Test against India at Lord's. The 32-year-old has had a torrid season behind the stumps and his rash dismissal, unwisely hooking Ishant Sharma, played a key role in England's second innings collapse.
