Juventus' midfielder Paul Pogba (R) scores a goal during an Italian Serie A football match against Bologna on April 19, 2014 in Juventus Stadium in TurinJuventus remain on course for a record-breaking points haul as they closed in on the Serie A title with a 1-0 win over struggling Bologna on Saturday. A 64th minute goal from French starlet Paul Pogba was enough to give the Turin giants all three points and take them to 90 for the season. With four matches remaining, and having lost only twice in the league all season, Juventus can reasonably expect to become the first club to break the 100-points barrier. A draw would be enough for Roma to secure second place and automatic qualification for the Champions League as third-place Napoli could only manage a 1-1 draw away at Udinese.

By Mohamed Ghobari SANAA (Reuters) - An air strike killed 10 al Qaeda militants in central Yemen on Saturday after an intelligence report said they were planning attacks on civil and military targets in al-Bayda province, the state news agency Saba said. Saba quoted an official source in the High Security Committee as saying that the strike hit the militants, described as "among the dangerous and leading elements of al Qaeda", in a car as they were on their way to the central province. Ten al Qaeda militants were killed and one was wounded, the source said, while three civilians were also killed and five were wounded because they happened to be in a nearby vehicle. "This happened after security bodies received confirmed intelligence information about the presence of a car with 11 terrorist elements on board who were planning to target vital civil and military institutions in al-Bayda province," Saba cited the source as saying.
