ADEN (Reuters) - The leader of Yemen's Iranian-allied Houthi rebels said on Sunday that Yemenis had the right to resist Saudi "aggression" by any means. The tone of Abdel-Malek al-Houthi's first public speech since Saudi-led airstrikes began targeting the militia more than three weeks ago suggested he was in no mood to compromise despite pressure from a Sunni Arab coalition.

Sabah Nuaman, a special forces commander in Anbar, said the situation had improved after airstrikes hit key militant targets on the city's fringes. (AP Photo)CAIRO (AP) — Islamic State militants in Libya shot and beheaded groups of captive Ethiopian Christians, a video purportedly from the extremists showed Sunday.

Tusk himself tweeted that he was talking to EU leaders, the European Commission and its foreign service on "how to alleviate (the) situation" after a fishing boat capsized overnight off the Libyan coast, killing as many as 700 migrants. After the consultations, the spokesman said, the former Polish prime minister who now chairs the Council of EU leaders would decide on a possible extraordinary summit.
