A suicide bombing and shelling in the Shia-majority Kadhimiyah district of north Baghdad killed at least 14 people on Thursday, security and medical officials said. The attacks also wounded more than 30 people, the officials said. There was no immediate claim for the attacks, but Sunni extremists, including those from the Islamic State (IS) jihadist group, frequently target members of Iraq's Shia majority, whom they consider heretics.

US warplanes hit an Islamic State group training camp in Iraq Thursday in their first strike not directly supporting Iraqi or Kurdish forces as France announced it will join the air war. The jihadists posted their latest video of a Western hostage, British journalist John Cantlie. Unlike previous grisly postings of two American journalists and a British aid worker being beheaded, Cantlie was only shown speaking to camera in the style of a news report.
Saudi Arabia has agreed to fund the restoration of Cairo's Al-Azhar mosque in recognition of its role as a "beacon of moderate Islam," the Egyptian president's office said Thursday. The announcement came after talks between President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and visiting Saudi intelligence chief Prince Khaled bin Bandar bin Abdel Aziz on the coalition Washington is building against the Islamic State group (IS) in Iraq and Syria.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on Thursday called for greater political and military support from Washington and tighter sanctions on Russia as he told US lawmakers that Kremlin aggression represented a threat to global security. Speaking to a joint meeting of the US Congress, Poroshenko spoke of the threats posed by proxy wars, terrorism and extremist movements, warning: "If they are not stopped now, they will cross European borders and spread throughout the globe."
Indian and Chinese leaders pledged Thursday to resolve a long-running border dispute that led to a bloody 1962 war, as a stand-off between troops on the remote frontier overshadowed a rare summit in New Delhi. India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he had expressed concerns to China's visiting President Xi Jinping about "incidents" on the disputed border in the northern Ladakh region, where reports said hundreds of troops were facing off.
A former US Army officer has been jailed for seven years for leaking confidential military information to his Chinese girlfriend in Hawaii. Benjamin Pierce Bishop, an ex civilian defence contractor and retired lieutenant colonel, also admitted retaining classified information at his home. The 60-year-old was sentenced on Wednesday to 87 months behind bars and three years' supervized release, in a plea agreement after admitting to two charges in March.
From electric shocks and sexual violence to ripping out nails and teeth to extract confessions, torture has become so commonplace in Nigeria's criminal justice system that some police stations have an officer in charge of the practice, Amnesty International said on Thursday.
