In this photo taken Friday, Sept. 26, 2014, Truck driver Ozgur Simsek listens during an interview at his home in Silopi, Turkey. The 20-year-old was among 32 drivers held hostage by the Islamic State group earlier this year. For many foreigners, being caught by the group’s fanatical fighters would mean months of uncertainty, torture and, eventually, a gruesome death. For Simsek and his colleagues, captivity would last just over three weeks. Their trucks were confiscated, but no one was harmed and no ransom was paid, according to an account of the June 10 attack pieced together by The Associated Press from interviews with drivers and a company executive. The episode paints a picture of a militant group unusually careful not to anger Turkey’s government - and may offer insight into the mysterious release of 49 Turkish hostages just over a week ago. (AP Photo/Raphael Satter)SILOPI, Turkey (AP) — Turkish truck driver Ozgur Simsek was sleeping off a 1,000-kilometer (620-mile) fuel run to the Qayara power station in Iraq, he said, when he heard banging on his vehicle's door.

ATYRAU Kazakhstan (Reuters) - Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said on Tuesday he hoped Moscow and Kiev would this week settle their differences over a timetable for Ukraine to pay its natural gas debts to Russia. Russia stopped gas flows to Ukraine in June in a standoff over the gas price with its neighboring former Soviet republic, through which Europe receives about half of its gas imports from Russia. After several rounds of talks brokered by the European Union, Moscow and Kiev reported progress at a meeting last week in Berlin. ...
