Maduro's Troops Kill 2 as Opposition Tries to Open BordersMembers of the Pemon stopped anti-riot troops and their vehicles about 6 a.m. as they tried to assert control over the remote area around Gran Sabana, about 780 miles (1,260 kilometers) southeast of Caracas. Soldiers opened fire, leaving more than a dozen indigenous people injured, some seriously, said Americo de Grazia, an opposition member of the National Assembly. The victims were Zoraida Rodriguez and her husband, Rolando Garcia, according to a news release from Asociacion Civil Kape Kape, an organization that promotes rights for indigenous people in Venezuela’s Bolivar state.

Syria force hit by IS attack as tries to free last civilians

Syria force hit by IS attack as tries to free last civiliansA deadly car bombing claimed by the Islamic State group hit US-backed forces in eastern Syria on Thursday as they tried to negotiate the release of civilians trapped in the jihadists’ last sliver of territory. The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are working towards evacuating civilians remaining in the holdout, so they can finish off the dying IS “caliphate” either through an assault or a surrender deal. The jihadists overran large parts of Syria and neighbouring Iraq in 2014, but several offensives have retaken all but half a square kilometre (a fifth of a square mile) of their territory in the eastern Syrian village of Baghouz.

Venezuela's parliament tries to lure military into disavowing Maduro

Venezuela's parliament tries to lure military into disavowing MaduroVenezuela’s opposition-controlled but powerless National Assembly stepped up its battle with President Nicolas Maduro on Tuesday by offering an amnesty to anyone from the military who joins it in disavowing the socialist leader. The “amnesty law” would extend also to civilian government officials who collaborate “in the restitution of constitutional order,” parliament said. The row between the legislature and Maduro has intensified since the socialist leader was sworn in last week for a second term of office in the crisis-hit country, after he won snap elections in May that were boycotted by the opposition and dismissed by the United States, European Union and Organization of American States as a fraud.
