Prime Minister David Cameron warned that British military action against Islamic State militants could last for "years" as he urged lawmakers on Friday to vote in favour of joining US-led air strikes in Iraq. Cameron kicked off an emergency House of Commons debate with a call to action against the "psychopathic terrorists" who have beheaded British aid worker David Haines and are holding two more Britons, Alan Henning and John Cantlie.

Air France expects to operate 41 percent of its flights on Monday as a pilots strike over cost cuts and plans for the company's budget Transavia unit enters its second week. The French airline, part of Air France-KLM, also confirmed it planned to operate just 38 percent of services on Sunday, based on 65 percent of pilots taking part in the walkout. The SNPL pilots union, which has extended the strike until Friday and said it could seek to prolong it further as talks with management stall, has called on French Prime Minister Manuel Valls to intervene to try to resolve the dispute.

Yemen's prime minister submitted his resignation to President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi on Sunday amid chaos over reported advances by Shia Muslim Houthi rebels on some military buildings and government offices in the capital. The move by Mohammed Salem Basindwa added to confusion in Sanaa, where Houthi rebels were due to sign a deal brokered by U.N. special envoy to Yemen Jamal Benomar, intended to end the fighting and pave the way for a new government within two weeks.

I am delighted-David Cameron

David Cameron has said it is time for the UK "to move forward" after Scotland voted against independence. The PM said he was "delighted" by the result, which gave the UK a chance to change "for the better". He said there had to be a "fair and balanced" settlement with English MPs deciding on laws applying to England. But defeated SNP leader Alex Salmond warned against any delay in shifting powers to Scotland as he announced his decision to step down. "For me as leader, my time is nearly done," he said. "For Scotland, the campaign continues and the dream shall never die." Scotland's First Minister explained his decision to quit just hours after Scotland voted decisively to stay in the United Kingdom by 2,001,926 votes to 1,617,989 - about 55% to 45%. The vote is the culmination of a two-year campaign. Talks will now begin on devolving more powers to Scotland.

WASHINGTON: Israel has faced increasing pressure, including from the United States, after saying it plans to expropriate 400 hectares (988 acres) of Palestinian land in the Bethlehem area in the south of the occupied West Bank. Ally Washington, the United Nations and Egypt all called for an urgent rethink after Sunday’s announcement, which angered the Palestinians and alarmed Israeli peace campaigners, and comes days after a long-term ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinians took hold. According to the Israeli military, the land move was a political decision made after the June killing of three Israeli teenagers snatched in the same area, known to Israelis as the Gush Etzion settlement bloc. “This announcement, like every other settlement announcement Israel makes, planning step they approve, and construction tender they issue, is counterproductive to Israel’s stated goal of a negotiated two-state solution with the Palestinians,” a official said.

SHANGHAI: Nearly 18,000 geese died on a poultry farm in northeast China after being stricken by the H5N6 bird flu virus last month, the agriculture ministry said. As many as 20,550 geese on the farm in Harbin, the capital of Heilongjiang province, showed symptoms of avian flu and 17,790 birds died, the ministry said on its website on Monday. The ministry sealed off and sterilized the infected area, besides culling and safely disposing of almost 69,000 geese, it added. The National Avian Influenza Reference Laboratory confirmed that the geese had the H5N6 virus. In May, a 49-year-old man in China’s Sichuan province died of the H5N6 bird flu virus, which domestic media described as the world’s first known human infection with the strain.

LONDON / The leading car in the super mini segment, Ford’ s Fiesta is the top-selling car in the UK.

LONDON The government’s most senior security official, Charles Farr, detailed how searches on Google, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, as well as emails to or from non-British citizens abroad, can be monitored by the security services because they are deemed to be “external communications”. It is the first time that the government has admitted that UK citizens, talking via supposedly private channels in social media such as Twitter direct messages, are deemed by the British government to be legitimate legal targets that do not require a warrant before intercepting. The 48-page detailed defence of mass monitoring by Farr, who is director general of the Office for Security and Counter-Terrorism, develops a legal interpretation that critics say sidesteps the need for traditional intercept safeguards. The document, released on Tuesday, provoked calls for the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (Ripa) to be overhauled urgently, as well as allegations that the government was exploiting loopholes in the legislation of which parliament was unaware.
