Afghan forces backed by Nato air attacks Sunday drove the Taliban out of a district centre in southern Afghanistan, days after the insurgents overran it, officials said. The town of Musa Qala in volatile Helmand province was captured by the insurgents on Wednesday, after a week of clashes in which the Taliban claimed to have killed or captured dozens of Afghan forces. Reinforcements were brought in from neighbouring Kandahar province.

A senior Kuwaiti lawmaker on Sunday described Iran as the "true enemy" of Sunni-ruled Gulf Arab states, in a sign of growing tensions with the Shia power. "It has become clear to all that Iran is an enemy plotting to swallow up our states and resources and is the true enemy of the region," Hamad al-Harashani, the head of the Kuwaiti parliament's foreign relations committee, said in a statement.
Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir is expected to travel to China on Monday for a four-day visit, the foreign ministry said, defying an international warrant for his arrest. The Hague-based International Criminal Court (ICC) issued arrest warrants for Bashir in 2009 and 2010, accusing him of masterminding genocide and other atrocities in his campaign to crush a revolt in the western Darfur region.
Europe's migration system is broken, British Interior Minister Theresa May wrote on Sunday, blaming its borderless system for exacerbating a migrant crisis and demanding tighter European Union rules on free movement.
For Zerai Kiron Abraham, who fled Eritrea in 1990 to settle in Germany, the refugees flooding Europe don't need pity, but to be seen as real people with dreams and ambitions of their own.
Faced with its worst migrant crisis since World War II, Europe has many sensible options to deal with people fleeing conflict in Syria and elsewhere -- but can't agree on any of them. The situation has accelerated over the summer with a new stream of migrants arriving via the Balkans, adding to those braving death to cross the Mediterranean or risking their lives to enter the Channel Tunnel.
Switzerland has rejected India's request for legal assistance in investigating two Swiss companies suspected of bribing Indian officials to win arms deals. "As the requesting authority did not deliver information requested by international assistance law, the OAG (Office of the Attorney General) was by law not in a position to provide information," an OAG spokesman said in an emailed comment on Sunday, confirming a report by the NZZ am Sonntag newspaper.
