    President Mahmoud Abbas was hospitalized with fever Sunday just days after undergoing surgery on his ear, an official said. The 83-year-old Abbas has endured a series of recent health scares which have revived anxiety over who will succeed him. A senior Abbas aide, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with protocol, said the Palestinian leader was diagnosed with a fever on Sunday. Abbas had an ear operation last week, and returned to the hospital late Saturday for a follow-up. Saed Sarahneh, of Istishari Arab hospital, said late Sunday that “all tests are normal and his condition is reassuring.” He...

    Photographs of Saddam Hussein's feared sons laid out in plastic body bags were released by the US today in a bid to convince sceptical Iraqis that neither would follow their father into power.

Uday was clearly recognisable, despite having a thick beard and a wound that had destroyed part of his nose and upper lip. He appeared to have been killed by a bullet in the head, but it was not known whether...

    SOMALI officials today accused the US of launching new air strikes on suspected al-Qaeda sites in southern Somalia, but Washington denied carrying out any further strikes amid doubt over the results.

In the capital Mogadishu, senior Somali officials said US aircraft staged new raids, a day after Washington confirmed Monday's air strike aimed at senior al-Qaeda operatives believed hiding there. "There were more air...

At least 30 balaclava-clad insurgents dressed in black, carrying AK-47s and grenade launchers – but shielded at times by civilians – attacked the Australian column as it visited a police barracks in the city on...
