Israel keeps up Gaza assaults,... By Nidal al-Mughrabi and Maayan Lubell GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli forces killed 10 Palestinians on Tuesday, maintaining its huge offensive against the Gaza Strip as diplomatic pressure mounted to end the worst violence in five years between Islamist Hamas and Israel. Plumes of dark black smoke rose into the sky above Gaza, and shells continued to rain down on the coastal enclave, while Hamas and its allies fired 11 rockets across the border into southern Israel, the army said. With the conflict entering its third week, the Palestinian death toll rose to almost 550, including nearly 100 children and many other civilians, Gaza health officials said. The Israeli military said it had killed 183 militants. Posted on 22 July 2014 | 2:52 am
Ten killed in air strike north of... The attack targeted the town of Hawija, 230 km (140 miles) from the capital, which is controlled by Sunni Muslim insurgents from the Islamic State and other groups opposed to Iraq's Shi'ite-led government. Hawija has also seen infighting between the insurgents, with jihadist Islamic State fighters clashing in June with the Naqshbandi militants, made up of former army officers as well as loyalists of Saddam Hussein's former ruling Baath party. The army, backed by Shi'ite Muslim militias and volunteer fighters, has been trying to push back the Sunni insurgents since they took over the northern city of Mosul on June 10 and swept south towards the capital. Further north, the Islamic State has been consolidating its control, driving Christians out of the city of Mosul with a weekend ultimatum to either convert to Islam, pay a religious levy to the hardline Islamists, or face death by the sword.

Indonesia's likely loser in... By Jonathan Thatcher and Dennys Kapa JAKARTA (Reuters) - The likely loser in Indonesia's presidential race made a last-gasp attempt to delay the announcement of the official election results on Tuesday, expected to declare Jakarta Governor Joko "Jokowi" Widodo as the nation's next leader. Most private tallies show Jokowi beat former special forces chief Prabowo Subianto by about five percentage points. He is expected to challenge the vote in the Constitutional Court, though experts say such an appeal is unlikely to succeed. Both sides have claimed victory in the closest presidential election ever in the nation with the world's biggest Muslim community. Posted on 22 July 2014 | 1:11 am
