    Nearly two and a half years after the Russian military began an intensive bombing campaign in Syria in support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Russia is struggling to engineer a political solution in the war-ravaged country, analysts say. The Kremlin has presented its landmark Syria operation as a success, shrugging off western criticism over the killing of civilians while claiming to have withdrawn a significant part of its forces. "During the battle against the Islamic State group (IS), it was easier for the various parties (Russia, Turkey, Iran, US) to find common ground.

  • Counter-terror police launch murder investigation after confirming Russian exile Nikolai Glushkov strangled news

    A fierce critic of Vladimir Putin, who was found dead at his south London home earlier this week, was murdered, police have said, amid fears of a second Russia-sponsored attack on British soil. Businessman, Nikolai Glushkov, 68, who was granted asylum in the UK after fleeing Moscow in 2006, was strangled to death, Scotland Yard has confirmed. The former right-hand man of deceased oligarch, Boris Berezovsky, his death came just over a week after Russian spy, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter, Yulia, were poisoned by a nerve agent in Salisbury. The former boss of the state airline Aeroflot, Mr Glushkov had told friends he feared he was on a Kremlin hit-list. Wish suspicion falling again on Moscow, police have reportedly started contacting a number of Russian exiles to discuss their safety. Police and the security services have now reassessed their view that exiles are at a low risk, the BBC reported.  A former bodyguard, who worked for Mr Berezovsky, and knew Mr Glushkov well, said his death had all the hallmarks of a state-sponsored assassination. A murder investigation was launched in New Malden The France-based security expert, who asked to be identified only by his initials, RG, said: “I’m not at all surprised [that a murder investigation has been opened]. “You can easily choke someone in 10 seconds so that they fall into a comatose state and you can then continue strangling them without leaving any other marks on the body. It’s a technique they [the Russians] know well.” Mr Berezovsky was found hanged in the bathroom of his Surrey home in 2013, with the cause of death being put down to suicide. But suspicion has always surrounded the circumstances of his death, with many believing he was one of a number of Putin critics who were deliberately silenced. Another of their close associates, Badri Patarkatsishvili, 52, died at his Surrey home in 2008, following an apparent heart attack. 12 uk deaths with suspected Russian involvement A close personal friend of the three men, who asked not to be named, said he was in little doubt their murders were linked. He said: "All of them were in no doubt that Boris was killed. It is perhaps inevitable that they would be assassinated themselves. "It is a very horrible thing to happen, he was a lovely man, a very funny man with a great sense of humour. It sounds like somebody has a vendetta against them." Boris Berezovsky was found dead at his Surrey home five years ago Counter terror officers continued to probe the nerve gas attack on Mr Skirpal, whose attempted murder led to the expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats from London. Boris Johnson, the Foreign Secretary, escalated the war of words with Russia, when he accused Vladimir Putin of personally ordering the nerve agent attack. He said it was "overwhelmingly likely" that the Russian President was behind the attempted murder, a claim that was described as “unpardonable” by Mr Putin’s spokesman. News of this latest murder investigation will further stoke fears that critics or enemies of Russia and its leader, are no longer safe on British soil. Downing Street said the Prime Minister had been "kept informed" of developments but stressed that Mr Glushkov's death was a police matter and that no link had been made with the Salisbury poisoning case. But Iain Duncan Smith, the former Conservative leader, said the murder of Mr Glushkov appeared to “fit into a pattern” of violent deaths of enemies of Mr Putin. The police investigation is continuing in Salisbury He said: "If there is a link between Mr Glushkov's death and the Kremlin it will be further proof that we are dealing with essentially a rogue state which refuses to abide by international rules and has violated UN laws. "What has been going on is a deliberate attempt to settle Russian scores in the UK.” Boris Johnson has laid the blame at Putin's door But a key ally of Jeremy Corbyn has suggested moderate Labour MPs who blame Russia for spy poisoning are "enemies" who should be deselected. Chris Williamson, the Labour MP for Derby North, said Labour MPs who had decided Moscow was “unequivocally” to blame were “baying for blood” and he suggested they face de-selection. And the Kremlin also ramped up its language, launching a withering response to Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson, who had suggested Russia should “go away and shut up”. Major-General Igor Konashenkov, a spokesman at Russia’s defence ministry, accused Mr Williamson of engaging in “market wench talk”, adding that it reflected his “intellectual impotency”.

    U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis accused Iran on Thursday of "mucking around" in Iraq's May parliamentary election, in which Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi is seeking another term after a successful, U.S.-backed war against Islamic State militants. The ballot will decide Iraq's leader for the next four years, when Baghdad will be faced with rebuilding cities and towns seized from Islamic State, preventing the militants' return and addressing the sectarian and economic divisions that fueled the conflict. Among Abadi's challengers are former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and Hadi al-Amiri, a former transportation minister – both of whom are among Iran's closest allies in neighboring Iraq.

  • Correction: Veterans Home-Shooting story news

    YOUNTVILLE, Calif. (AP) — In a story March 9 about a fatal shooting at a California veterans' home, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Jennifer Golick phoned her husband to tell him a former patient was holding her captive. Her father-in-law, Bob Golick, told the AP the information in a telephone interview soon after Golick was taken hostage. The California Highway Patrol investigated the crime and found that there was no evidence Jennifer Golick called her husband while captive. That prompted AP to contact Bob Golick again. He acknowledged he had misinterpreted an emotional and disjointed phone conversation with his son, who had learned the identity of the man who took Golick hostage from others at the scene, not from his wife.

  • Will Sweden host Trump-Kim summit? North Korean official visits country for talks news

    North Korea’s foreign minister has travelled to Sweden for talks, giving rise to speculation that the Scandinavian country could play host to the unprecedented summit between US President Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un. Sweden, which has an embassy in Pyongyang, has frequently been used as a communication channel between the US and North Korea. It has been cited along with Geneva, and the Demilitarised Zone on the North and South Korean border as a possible location for the historic meeting. But Ri Yong-ho’s two-day trip and meeting with his Swedish counterpart, Margot Wallstrom, has also generated reports of negotiations on the possible release of three Americans detained in North Korea – Kim Dong-chul, Tony Kim and Kim Hak-song. Sweden was the first Western European nation to establish diplomatic relations with the North in 1973, and its embassy performs consular services for the US, Australia and Canada, who have no representation there. Last year it played a crucial role in the release of Canadian pastor Hyeon Soo Lim and US student Otto Warmbier, who had entered a coma and died shortly after returning to his family.   North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho and his delegation arrive to the Swedish Foreign Ministry Credit: Reuters Mr Ri’s visit to Stockholm, accompanied by Choe Kang-il, a senior official in charge of American affairs, has been the first sign of diplomatic movement on the North Korean side since President Trump stunned the world last week by immediately agreeing to Kim Jong-un’s invitation to meet.   In Washington, the state department insisted on Thursday that it was pushing ahead with preparations for the summit, the first ever between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader, despite the regime’s ongoing silence on Mr Trump’s offer. Asked if the US had received a direct message from the North, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said: “Not that I am aware of. I do not believe that to be the case,” reported Yonhap. Seoul, which has been driving the progress towards talks, is also in the throes of preparation. This week it dispatched Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha to Washington for three days to shore up support among congressional leaders. Ms Kang briefed senior legislators on the recent trip to Pyongyang by South Korean envoys, which led to the diplomatic breakthrough of Kim Jong-un agreeing to talk to both South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in and the US. South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha sits with South Korean Ambassador to the United States Ahn Ho-young prior to a meeting with the House Committee on Foreign Affairs in Washington Credit: Reuters She is also scheduled to meet deputy secretary of state John Sullivan to thrash out details for the planned summits. Back in Seoul, President Moon has launched a committee, headed by his chief of staff, Im Jong-seok, to lay the ground for his own one-on-one meeting with Mr Kim at the end of April. On Friday, a presidential official told reporters that Mr Moon’s summit with Mr Kim would likely be a one-day affair. The summit, only the third between the leaders of the North and South since the Korean war of the early 1950s, will be held in the tense border village of Panmunjom, which has few facilities. But despite the Washington’s united diplomatic front with Seoul in dealing with Pyongyang, tensions remain between the two allies over trade after the US president last year threatened to scrap their bilateral trade pact. On Wednesday, Mr Trump appeared to hint at withdrawing US troops stationed in South Korea if Seoul failed to address its trade deficit with Washington. “We have a very big trade with them, and we protect them,” Mr Trump said in an audio recording obtained by the Washington Post. “We lose money on trade, and we lose money on the military. We have right now 32,000 soldiers on the border between North and South Korea. Let’s see what happens.” But Admiral Harry Harris, the chief of the US Pacific Command, later cautioned that pulling troops out would be counterproductive. “I believe he [Kim Jong-un] would do a victory dance,” he told the Senate Armed Services Committee. “I think he’d be a happy man if we abrogated our alliance with South Korea.”

  • Timeline - The rise of Chinese leader Xi Jinping news

    By John Ruwitch SHANGHAI (Reuters) - President Xi Jinping, China's most powerful leader since Mao Zedong, will be re-elected to a second five-year term as president on Saturday by the rubber-stamp parliament, the National People's Congress. The son of Communist Party revolutionary and one-time deputy prime minister Xi Zhongxun, the younger Xi spent decades working his way up party and government ranks, but his consolidation of power since becoming head of the party in 2012 has been unprecedented. Xi's ascent culminated last week in parliament's passing of a constitutional amendment that eliminated term limits for the presidency, discarding a rule that had helped keep leaders in check and underpinned collective decision-making for 35 years.

American soldiers killed 504 people on March 16, 1968, in Son My, a collection of hamlets between the central Vietnamese coast and a ridge of misty mountains, in an incident known in the West as the My Lai Massacre.
