Myanmar transit camps sit empty as Rohingya fear return

The transit camp in Myanmar's Rakhine state stands ready to welcome back 150 Rohingya refugees from Bangladesh every day. The result is a stand-off, as Myanmar immigration officials wait in empty offices shuffling papers and arranging biometric equipment but with little to no work to do except greet visiting delegations and journalists. Fewer than 200 Rohingya Muslims have been resettled in Myanmar's northern Rakhine state from the 700,000 who fled a violent army crackdown in August.

Iraq executed a dozen death row jihadists on the order of Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, his office said Friday, in retaliation for the Islamic State group's murder of eight captives. The executions on Thursday came shortly after Abadi ordered the "immediate" implementation of the death sentences of hundreds of convicted jihadists in response to the killings by IS.

Zimbabwe president says he suspects political faction linked to Grace Mugabe was behind rally blast 

Zimbabwe's new president has implicated a ruling party faction loyal to Robert Mugabe's wife in a bomb attack that nearly killed him over the weekend. Significantly raising the political temperature ahead of a crucial election next month, Emmerson Mnangagwa claimed that rivals who had hoped to install Grace Mugabe as president may have been behind Saturday's apparent assassination attempt. Renewing a vicious rivalry with the former first lady, Mr Mnangagwa said he suspected Mrs Mugabe's G40 faction of being behind the attack because it opposed the democratic turn the country had taken under his stewardship. "The people who are aggrieved about the new dispensation are the G40," he told the...

'On pain of death, please don't tell me the score': Middle East tour forces Prince William to miss England match

As the Duke of Cambridge embarked on his landmark tour to the Middle East, due to become the first member of the British Royal family to undertake an official visit to Israel, he could be forgiven for feeling the weight of history on his shoulders.  As befits the president of the Football Association though, he also had one other thing on his mind: watching the World Cup. The Duke, who has landed in Amman, Jordan for the first day of his tour, asked his new friend Crown Prince Hussein bin Abdullah II to record the England match for him, making those around him promise not to tell him the score. The Duke and the Prince, 23, later watched the recorded game after dinner, as the Jordanian...

The most political takes issue with France's tough anti-migrant policy, with nearly 40 makeshift camps razed in Paris in the last three years and President Emmanuel Macron determined that the city does not become a magnet for refugees.

North and South Korea agree to round of reunions of divided families

By Joyce Lee SEOUL (Reuters) - Delegations from North and South Korea agreed on Friday to arrange the first reunions in three years of some of the families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War. The reunions - scheduled for Aug. 20 to Aug. 26 - are an emotive issue, especially for the elderly relatives taking part in tearful meetings after decades of separation - and have taken place from time to time during periods of good ties between the two Koreas. The Red Cross organizations from the two countries will arrange the reunions which will involve about 200 selected people from the two sides, they said in a joint statement after a meeting of delegations.

UN rights chief calls for probe of abuses by Venezuela forces

The United Nations human rights chief called Friday for an international investigation of atrocities in Venezuela, blasting the government's chronic refusal to probe security officers over the alleged killings of civilians. "The failure to hold security forces accountable for such serious human rights violations suggests that the rule of law is virtually absent in Venezuela," said Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein, as his office launched a new report on the crisis-stricken country. Zeid asked the UN Human Rights Council to set up its highest-level probe -- a Commission of Inquiry -- for Venezuela and said the International Criminal Court may need to get further involved.
