Foreign fighters bent on joining jihadists in Syria, Iraq and North Africa are changing tactics to avoid detection, increasingly resorting to tortuous travel routes and relying on middlemen, Interpol said Friday. Interpol chief Juergen Stock told a special UN Security Council meeting that intelligence-sharing was key to stopping would-be jihadists who are now flocking to war zones in record numbers.

An Islamic State jihadist killed four people Friday when he blew himself up in a car outside a Shia 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 Shia minority of protection provided by security forces in the predominantly Sunni kingdom.
Yemen's ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh said in an interview broadcast Friday he had rejected "millions of dollars" Saudi Arabia offered him if he stood up to the Shia rebels. "They told us 'we'll pay you millions of dollars if you ally with us'" against the Huthis, Saleh told the Beirut-based Al-Mayadeen television channel, adding that he rejected the offer.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel vowed Friday to help keep Britain in the EU by working on reforms with Prime Minister David Cameron, even keeping the door open to treaty change. Offering a warm and conciliatory tone to visiting Cameron - who had received mixed welcomes elsewhere on a two-day European whistlestop tour - she said Berlin was willing to pursue compromise on London's demands.
Germany's foreign minister warned Friday that the situation in Ukraine's separatist east was turning more "fragile" and required all sides to focus their efforts on salvaging a three-month truce. Frank-Walter Steinmeier flew into Kiev just days before Ukraine's Western-backed President Petro Poroshenko's peace envoy meets pro-Russian rebel negotiators in Minsk, Belarus in a desperate bid to keep all-out warfare from resuming on the European Union's eastern frontier.
China recently deployed two artillery pieces on one of its artificial islands in the contested South China Sea, US defence officials said Friday, in an unprecedented move that will heighten suspicion of Beijing's intentions. The heavy weapons, since removed, posed no security threat but their positioning - within range of territory claimed by Vietnam - underscored Washington's concerns that China is pursuing a huge island-building project for military purposes, officials said.
Belgium and the Netherlands have launched probes into claims of widespread espionage by Germany, which is accused of helping the US spy on Berlin's closest allies in Europe, officials said Friday. The separate investigations follow reports that Germany's BND spy agency helped the US National Security Agency amass a trove of data on targets in Europe, including the French government, European Commission and Airbus Group.
