Israel pounds Gaza despite international peace efforts

Israeli police officers detain a protester suspected of throwing stones during a protest by Israeli Arabs in the northern city of Nazareth, against Israel's offensive in the Gaza StripBy Nidal al-Mughrabi and Jeffrey Heller GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel pounded targets across the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, saying no ceasefire was near as top U.S. and United Nations diplomats pursued talks on halting the fighting that has claimed more than 600 lives. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry held discussions in neighbouring Egypt, while U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon met Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Tel Aviv and later with the Palestinian prime minister in the occupied West Bank. Dealing a blow to Israel's economy already reeling from a spate of tourism cancellations, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) took the rare step of banning U.S. carriers from flying to or from Ben-Gurion International Airport for at least 24 hours after a rocket fired from Gaza struck near the airport's fringes, injuring two people. Israel's flagship carrier El Al continued flights as usual.

TRIPOLI (Reuters) - At least four people were killed in a suicide bombing at an army base in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi on Tuesday, a security source said.

Members of the Iraqi security forces take their positions during a patrol in the town of Jurf al-SakharBy Kamal Namaa FALLUJA Iraq (Reuters) - Iraqi government air strikes killed 19 people, including children, in Falluja on Monday and Tuesday, a health official in the militant-held city said. The Iraqi army has been shelling Falluja, 70 km (44 miles) west of Baghdad, for months, trying to drive out the Sunni militants from the group now known as Islamic State. Ahmed al-Shami, a spokesman for the Falluja health office - the local arm of the health ministry - said the 19 dead included women and children and that Falluja hospital had also received 38 wounded people since Monday evening. Residents of Falluja and the nearby town of Garma said helicopters fired artillery and dropped three barrel bombs on Falluja and two on Garma.

Suicide attack escalates Libya violence, oil output slips

A wreckage of a burnt aircraft is pictured after a shelling at Tripoli International AirportBy Ayman al-Warfalli and Ahmed Elumami BENGHAZI Libya (Reuters) - A twin suicide bombing at a Libyan army base in Benghazi killed at least four solders in an escalation of clashes between Islamist militants and regular forces battling to oust them from the eastern city. A first attacker blew himself up at the entrance to Benghazi's special forces headquarters, allowing a second suicide bomber to detonate his explosives at the base and kill at least four troops, a security source said. Suicide bombings are rare in Libya, where a fragile government is struggling to impose order. Tripoli and Benghazi are now caught up in some of the fiercest fighting between rival armed groups since the fall of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

Benin detains 10 people in child trafficking probe
Benin has detained 10 people on suspicions of child-trafficking just weeks after a group in neighboring Niger was held for links to a "baby factory" ring, police sources said on Tuesday. While it was not immediately clear if there was a connection between the two cases, the latest detentions point to the persistence of human trafficking across West Africa. "There have been around 10 people detained in the civil prison since last week," said Ghislaine Bokovo, director of the Benin police force's central office for child protection. Martial Degbessou, from the Porto-Novo police division, said people operating in trafficking networks often purported to be holding children on behalf of a nongovernmental organization.

And the volume of people being arrested at the border remains dramatically lower than the all-time high of more than 1.6 people in 2000. (AP Photo/Eduardo Verdugo)WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Democrats prepared Tuesday to whack $1 billion from President Barack Obama's emergency spending request for the border, while leaving out policy changes Republicans have demanded as their price for agreeing to any money.

MH17 shootdown may have been 'mistake': US intel official

A man walks amongst the wreckage of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 after it crashed, near the town of Shaktarsk, in rebel-held east Ukraine, on July 17, 2014Malaysian flight MH17 may have been shot down by "mistake" by ill-trained pro-Russian separatists, US intelligence officials said Tuesday, while dismissing Moscow's accounts of the incident as propaganda. Evidence gathered so far suggests separatists launched the SA-11 surface-to-air missile that blew up the Malaysian airliner on July 17, but it remains unclear "who pulled the trigger" and why, said a senior intelligence official who spoke on condition of anonymity. US satellite and other "technical" intelligence confirmed the airliner with 298 people on board was hit by an SA-11 surface-to-air missile from an area controlled by the pro-Russian rebels. The SA-11 is designed to be used in an "integrated air defense system" but with only one narrow radar beam, the missile launchers would have "a much more fuzzy picture," said a second intelligence official.

Gaza rocket halts Israel flights, world pushes for truce

Palestinian children inspect a destroyed mosque following an overnight Israeli military strike, on July 22, 2014, in Rafah the southern Gaza StripA rocket fired from Gaza on Tuesday led airlines to halt flights to Israel, as the UN chief urged an end to a conflict that has killed more than 630 Palestinians. As the violence entered its third week, the United States and Egypt discussed ceasefire proposals in Cairo, and the Palestinian leadership sought to coax Hamas to end hostilities. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, on a visit to Tel Aviv, appealed to Israel and the Islamist movement to "stop fighting" and "start talking," but neither side appeared willing to do so. Israel insisted it would press on with its punishing aerial and ground assault until it destroys cross-border tunnels used by Gaza militants to attack the Jewish state, while Hamas continued to fire rockets and inflicted more casualties on the army.

France backs 30 percent energy efficiency goal: letter

French minister for Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy Segolene Royal and Justice minister Christiane Taubira attend the questions to the government session at the National Assembly in ParisBy Barbara Lewis BRUSSELS (Reuters) - France's energy minister threw her weight behind an energy savings goal of at least 30 percent for 2030 ahead of talks in Brussels on Wednesday to thrash out a target.

Security Council on Tuesday a draft resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire between Israel and Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and the withdrawal of Israeli troops from the Hamas-dominated coastal enclave. It welcomes an Egyptian-led bid to end fighting between Israel and Hamas militants and "condemns all violence and hostilities directed against civilians and all acts of terrorism," according to a draft obtained by Reuters. A similar resolution was adopted by the 15-member Security Council in 2009, with 14 votes in favor. The United States, a close ally of Israel, abstained because Washington first wanted to see the outcome of Egyptian mediation efforts at the time.

Since June 2007, when Hamas gained control of the strip, Israel and Egypt have restricted trade and movement in and out of Gaza. Israel says the closure is meant to weaken Gaza's Hamas rulers and prevent militants from attacking targets in Israel. International aid groups say the blockade has seriously harmed Gaza's economy as well as its health system and infrastructure.
