A South Korean court has ruled against the killing of dogs for meat, in what has been described by animal rights groups as a milestone towards a national ban on serving the animals for human consumption. An estimated one million dogs are believed to be eaten annually in South Korea, where the practice historically has been fuelled by a belief that it aids virility. Younger Koreans, however, are generally opposed to it, and pressure is building on the government to outlaw the raising of dogs to be killed for food. A city court in Bucheon, a satellite city of the capital, Seoul, has now convicted the owner of a dog farm for killing animals without a proper reason and violating building...

Russia said on Monday only Syrian army troops should be on the country's southern frontiers, which appeared to be directed at Iran. The deal is said to have been...
