Taliban fighters have gained ground in two provinces in northern Afghanistan, overrunning a district centre in Sar-e-Pol and seizing villages in Kunduz, local officials there said on Tuesday. Earlier this week, they made a successful push towards a strategic pass at the border with Pakistan, capturing a large police base in Badakhshan province in the north-eastern corner of the mountainous country.

A North Korean ambassador said in New York on Tuesday that Pyongyang might launch a new missile test in October. Any rocket launch would almost certainly be viewed by the international community as a disguised ballistic missile test and result in the imposition of fresh sanctions. Asked about reports of a possible missile test in October, the ambassador said October 10 marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the North's ruling Workers' Party.
Iran's foreign minister moved to dismiss concerns Tuesday that his country's nuclear deal with major powers could hit difficulties, saying he had "no concern or worry" about its implementation. Mohammad Javad Zarif's remarks came during a joint news conference with visiting EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini aimed at ensuring that the historic agreement swiftly takes effect.
Nato strongly backed Turkey's fight against Islamic State militants in Syria at emergency talks Tuesday but some countries expressed concerns that strikes on Kurdish fighters could torpedo peace talks with the rebels. The rare meeting held at Turkey's request came as an uncompromising President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he could not continue negotiations with the Kurds amid attacks on Turkish targets.
Syrian government forces and a Kurdish militia have driven Islamic State fighters out of Hasaka city in Syria's far north-east, a month after the hard-line group attacked it, a group monitoring the four-year-old war said on Tuesday. Hasaka is the capital of a strategically important province that borders territory held by Islamic State in Iraq.
Insurgents have launched a major offensive on government-held areas in north-western Syria in a bid to advance towards a coastal region vital to President Bashar al-Assad's control of the west, a monitoring group and activists said on Tuesday. A Syrian military source described the attack as large and widespread. The insurgents are trying to drive into the Sahl al-Ghab plain, an area crucial to the defence of the coastal mountains that are the heartland of Assad's Alawite sect.
David Cameron has cooked up a "recipe for confusion" with his plans to reform Britain's relationship with the European Union, a committee of lawmakers said on Tuesday, criticising the prime minister for failing to make clear what changes he is seeking. Cameron plans to renegotiate Britain's EU ties ahead of a membership referendum by the end of 2017.
