Israel pounds Gaza despite... By Nidal al-Mughrabi and Jeffrey Heller GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel pounded targets across the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, saying no ceasefire was near as top U.S. and United Nations diplomats pursued talks on halting the fighting that has claimed more than 600 lives. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry held discussions in neighbouring Egypt, while U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon met Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Tel Aviv and planned to see the Palestinian prime minister in the occupied West Bank on Wednesday. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) banned U.S. carriers from flying to or from Ben-Gurion International Airport, after a rocket fired from Gaza struck near the airport's fringes, injuring two people. Israel's flagship carrier El Al continued flights as usual. Posted on 22 July 2014 | 2:53 pm

TRIPOLI (Reuters) - At least four people were killed in a suicide bombing at an army base in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi on Tuesday, a security source said.

Iraqi air strikes kill 19 around... By Kamal Namaa FALLUJA Iraq (Reuters) - Iraqi government air strikes killed 19 people, including children, in Falluja on Monday and Tuesday, a health official in the militant-held city said. The Iraqi army has been shelling Falluja, 70 km (44 miles) west of Baghdad, for months, trying to drive out Sunni militants from the group now known as Islamic State. Ahmed al-Shami, spokesman for the Falluja health office - the local arm of the health ministry - said the 19 dead included women and children and that Falluja hospital had also received 38 wounded people since Monday evening. Residents of Falluja and the nearby town of Garma said helicopters fired artillery and dropped three barrel bombs on Falluja and two on Garma. Posted on 22 July 2014 | 1:32 pm
IAEA worried about slow progress... By Fredrik Dahl VIENNA (Reuters) - The U.N. nuclear watchdog is concerned about Iran's current lack of engagement with an investigation into its suspected atomic bomb research, ahead of a deadline next month for Tehran to step up cooperation, diplomatic sources said on Tuesday. Western officials want Iran to address questions by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on allegations of past efforts to develop a nuclear weapons capability, something the country denies. They say Iran clarifying the IAEA's concerns would also influence a diplomatic push by six world powers to negotiate an end to a decade-old standoff over the Islamic Republic's nuclear program, suggesting some sanctions relief may depend on it. Iran says it is a peaceful project to generate electricity. Posted on 22 July 2014 | 11:49 am
