Eighteen accused of aiming to set up north Lebanon 'emirate'

A flag of the Islamic State (IS) is seen in Iraq on September 11, 2014.Eighteen suspected members of the Islamic State jihadist group were indicted Thursday on charges of aiming to set up an "emirate" in northern Lebanon, national news agency NNA reported. It did not identify all of the accused or give their nationalities, but said they included Ahmad Miqati, a Lebanese whose arrest last week sparked three days of deadly clashes in the northern city of Tripoli between gunmen and the army. They stand accused of attacks on soldiers and plotting to occupy villages in the Dinniyeh region to establish an "Islamic emirate", offences which could carry the death penalty. The arrest of Miqati, whom the army has described as a senior Islamic State (IS) operative, led to fierce clashes in Tripoli that killed 16 people, 11 of them soldiers, before the army restored control on Monday.

On the night of November 1, 1954, known as "Toussaint Rouge" (Red All Saints Day) because it coincided with the Catholic festival, some 30 explosions rocked government targets in the colony which had been under French occupation for 132 years, leaving seven people dead. At the time, Drif was a law student living with her younger brother and parents in Vialar, 280 kilometres (170 miles) southwest of Algiers. "Not only were we not surprised, but right away we said it was the start of the revolution," the senator recalled, seated in her office facing the port of Algiers.

Royals' success warms outgoing commissioner Selig's heart

MLB: World Series-San Francisco Giants at Kansas City RoyalsBy Larry Fine KANSAS CITY Missouri (Reuters) - In a way, it was fitting for Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig's last World Series in charge to finish in Kansas City. Selig, 80, is ending a 22-year reign as overseer of the game in January, and several of the innovations he instituted paid dividends at the 2014 Fall Classic.

Genetics could influence whether Ebola will kill: study

The Ebola virus is often deadly, but not always, and a study on mice suggests that genetics may play a role in the severity of the illnessThe Ebola virus is often deadly, but not always, and a study on mice Thursday suggested that genetics may play a role in the severity of the illness. At a high-security, state-of-the-art biocontainment laboratory in Hamilton, Montana, scientists infected mice with a mouse form of the same species of the Ebola virus that is sweeping West Africa. Seventy percent of the mice got sick, and more than half of this group died, some due to liver inflammation and others due to internal hemorrhage, according to the study in the US journal Science. Scientists said the variability in outcomes resembled what has been seen in the human epidemic sweeping West Africa this year, killing more than 4,900 people and infecting more than 13,000.

French researchers to test Ebola diagnostics in Guinea

Residents attend an awareness campaign on the haemorragic fever Ebola by local authorities in Lelouma, near Labe, western Guinea on September 27, 2014French researchers will conduct trials with prototype Ebola diagnostic tests in Guinea in November, with results expected within weeks for speedy deployment, the head of France's Ebola task force said Thursday. They will include a prototype device unveiled last week, similar to a home pregnancy test, that may make diagnosis possible in under 15 minutes, a potential game-changer, Jean-Francois Delfraissy, who spearheads France's Ebola campaign, told journalists in Paris. The biggest Ebola epidemic in history has claimed more than 4,900 lives in west Africa since the beginning of the year, according to the World Health Organization -- almost all of them in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Earlier this month, France's Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) announced that a new 15-minute Ebola test has proved effective in high-security laboratory trials.
