An Islamic State jihadist killed three people Friday when he blew himself up in a car outside a Shiite mosque in Saudi Arabia, the second such attack in a week. The bombing, again coinciding with weekly Friday prayers, added to the distrust felt by among the Shiite minority of protection provided by security forces in the predominantly Sunni kingdom.

By William James BERLIN (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel promised on Friday to work with David Cameron to clinch a deal on reforming the European Union that would keep Britain in the bloc, saying "where there's a will there's a way". Both leaders, fellow conservatives with a good personal rapport, dodged the question of whether Cameron's demands for changes to the EU treaty were achievable before Britain holds a referendum on its membership of the bloc. Cameron, who won a second term as prime minister on May 7, said he hoped and believed that Europe would show flexibility towards one of its "larger countries, a big contributor, a major European player".
