  • Kuwait mosque bomber raised no red flags, transited Bahrain

    The Saudi man who blew himself up inside a Shiite mosque in Kuwait managed to slip out of his home country without raising any red flags and board a commercial flight transiting nearby Bahrain less than 24 hours before the deadly attack. The details of the bomber's final hours, released by regional authorities, highlight the growing involvement of undetected Islamic State sympathizers on the Arabian Peninsula and the threat they pose to countries closer to home than the battlefields of Iraq and Syria.

  • A nuclear deal could sharpen political tensions in Iran

    By Parisa Hafezi VIENNA (Reuters) - A final deal to resolve the Iranian nuclear dispute could heighten domestic political tensions with two major elections looming in the Islamic Republic, analysts and officials said. Easing economic sanctions if a deal is reached will bolster President Hassan Rouhani's position within Iran's complex power structure bringing a political boost for liberal candidates in 2016 elections for parliament and for the Assembly of Experts, a clerical body with nominal power over the supreme leader. Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has the final say on all matters of state, has backed Rouhani's efforts to pursue a nuclear settlement and his dealings with the United States so as to improve the parlous state of Iran's economy.

  • Assad is 'getting desperate,' and the US thinks he could use chemical weapons on a massive scale

    Despite assurances that the regime of Syria's Bashar Assad had given up the country's stockpile of chemical weapons, US intelligence suspects that the regime could use large-scale attacks with chemical weapons to maintain control of government strongholds, The Wall Street Journal reports. US officials believe the Assad regime has created a new type of chemical bomb filled with chlorine and obtained the chemicals needed to make the nerve agents sarin or VX, according to The Journal. Assad agreed to give up his chemical arsenal after a 2013 sarin attack that killed 1,400 people, averting the threat of US-led airstrikes.
