    Videos show bodies of pro-Syrian regime militias after strikes near Iraq border

    Syrian state media said on Monday that US-led coalition aircraft had bombed a Syrian army position near the Iraqi border, causing deaths and injuries, but the US military denied it was responsible. The attack took place in al-Harra, southeast of the town of Albu Kamal, state news agency SANA said, citing a military source. SANA said the attack caused an unspecified number of deaths and injuries. Videos published by pro-regime media affiliated with the Iranian-backed Iraqi militias showed bodies being recovered from the rubble, and other footage showed the devastation caused by the air strikes.

    Iran commander: ‘We have the ability to increase our missile range’

    Iran has the ability to extend the range of its missiles, which currently have a 2,000-km reach, the Revolutionary Guards commander said on Tuesday. “We have the scientific ability to increase our missile range but it is not our current policy since most of the enemies' strategic targets are already within this 2,000-km range. This range is enough to protect the Islamic Republic...,” Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari was quoted as saying by Tasnim news agency. Jafari said previously that the range of Iran's ballistic missiles was based on limits set by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who commands the armed forces.

The world is getting hotter, indeed 16 of the 17 warmest years on record have occurred since 2001, say climatologists. It's no wonder demand for air conditioning systems is going through the roof.

This would mean that by 2050, the world's air conditioners would be using the current electricity capacity of the US, the European Union and Japan

    Michelle Obama and Laura Bush are two of the four first ladies who have spoken out about family separation.
