At least 12 people were killed when six attackers mounted simultaneous gun and suicide bomb attacks on Iran's Parliament building and the tomb of the republic's revolutionary founder, in one of the most audacious assaults to hit Tehran in decades.
The US "knows that the Revolutionary Guard and its Quds force are the most important regional forces fighting terrorists", Larijani said. Last Wednesday's rare and coordinated attacks on Tehran left dozens of people wounded. Alavi also said that in the past three months, Iran has broken up 25 terrorist teams. "Unfortunately, they succeeded in attacking the symbols of the country, of democracy and what is cherished by the people, the shrine of the founder of the Islamic Republic".
It suggested there were only five attackers rather than the six originally reported. Nelly Lahoud, an expert on extremism at the International Institute for Strategic Studies in Bahrain, said IS leaders may be looking to rally supporters through the attacks in Iran as they lose ground in Syria and Iraq.

The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) on Thursday expressed concern on the safety of around 50,000 children affected in the clash between the government forces and militants in Marawi city.

The US Embassy in Manila announced Saturday that US Special Operations Forces are assisting the Philippines in military operations. "At the request of the government of the Philippines, U.S. "We believe the enemy has strong defensive positions", he said.

The political turmoil comes as Britain is due to start negotiating on June 19 the terms of its exit from the European Union in talks of unprecedented complexity that are supposed to wrap up by the end of March 2019, when Britain actually leaves.
Early favourites for the role as Party leader include Boris Johnson , Amber Rudd and David Davis. This weekend, she has been seeking the support of the Democratic Unionist Party to form a new government after a disappointing result for Conservatives in Thursday's election.
British newspapers summed it up in a word: Mayhem. Democratic Unionist leader Arlene Foster is set to hold talks with Theresa May in Downing Street to finalise an agreement on propping up her minority government.

Corbyn has only been the leader of the Labour Party for less than two years, and has faced both incredible levels of media hostility, and sadly parts of his own party even admitting to trying to undermine his leadership every day, but he has delivered significant change in how politics is conducted and transformed the Labour Party for the better.
The Conservative leader has been warned her days are numbered after calling Thursday's vote three years early, only to lose her majority in parliament. May is seeking a deal with a Northern Irish party to prop up the Conservative minority government, and lawmakers said the rebuff from voters meant the government would have to abandon planned policies and re-think its strategy for European Union exit talks.
Duterte told reporters Sunday that he made a decision to declare martial law in the southern third of the country to better stop the gunmen from escaping from Marawi or launching new attacks elsewhere.

Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana exploited the fighting to justify the declaration of military rule, compelling Duterte to cancel his visit and return immediately to the Philippines.
National has taken its eye off the ball; Labour will get the balance right. In 2015, Davies' father Jonathan arrived in New Zealand from South Africa and was granted a one-year work visa. English also said the crackdown risked jeopardising the global education sector, New Zealand's fourth-largest export earner. Labour's proposed changes wouldn't affect the refugee quota, Pacific quotas, working holiday schemes, or the recognised seasonal employer scheme, and would seek to better target ...
In the North - the SDLP and the UUP have lost all their seats in Westminster at the expense of the DUP and Sinn Fein. Mr Paterson said the two parties had much in common and there was no reason why talented politicians from Northern Ireland should not "rise to the top" of United Kingdom politics following the Belfast agreement, as Republicans such as Gerry Adams had done in Ireland.
She added that an SNP victory in Scotland would "strengthen the country's hand" in Brexit negotiations.

May's weakened position in the party rules out big changes to the Cabinet lineup. A number of high-profile government figures including Philip Hammond and Boris Johnson have already confirmed they are keeping their jobs in the wake of an election that saw the Tories lose 13 seats.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, said it was "stunning" to hear a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director suggest he didn't trust the president. When I hear the Flynn comments, you know my father a long time , when he tells you to do something, guess what, there is no ambiguity in it. Comey's remarks suggested fresh lines of inquiry for Robert Mueller , the special counsel investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election, as ...
Participating at the summit, and later meeting China's President Xi Jinping on its sidelines, Prime Minister Narendra Modi highlighted the need for regional economic connectivity while keeping in view the sovereignty concerns of others - clearly a reference to China's Belt Road Initiative that passes through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, infringing Indian sovereignty.
