GENEVA (AP) — The Syrian government has likely used chlorine gas to attack civilians while the Islamic State group fighting them has committed crimes against humanity with attacks on civilians in two provinces, an independent U.N. commission said Wednesday.
Suresh Raina's dynamic century took India to 304 for six against England in the second one-day international at Cardiff on Wednesday. In what was effectively the first of this five-match series, following Monday's total washout in Bristol, India were in trouble at 19 for two before a stand of 91 between Rohit Sharma (52) and Ajinkya Rahane (41) revived the innings. Left-hander Raina, who made exactly 100, and India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (52), then strengthened the tourists' grip on the game with a fifth-wicket stand of 144. Rain during the mid-innings break left England chasing a revised target of 295 off 47 overs.
