By Aziz El Yaakoubi DOHA (Reuters) - Qatar said on Wednesday a decision by four Arab states to add 18 groups and individuals allegedly linked to Doha to their "terrorist" lists was "a disappointing surprise" and that it was doing all it could to fight extremism. Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain put another nine groups based in Yemen and Libya and nine people from several Arab countries on the blacklist, saying all were associated with Qatar. "(The new list) comes as a disappointing surprise that the blockading countries are still pursuing this story as part of their smear campaign against Qatar," Sheikh Saif Bin Ahmed al-Thani, director of the Gulf kingdom's Government Communications Office, said in a statement sent to Reuters.

Senator John McCain, the 30-year Senate veteran diagnosed last week with an aggressive form of brain cancer, recently returned to Congress to help advance a Republican healthcare plan that even he decried as a “shell of a bill”. Democrats and Republicans alike stood and applauded as the outspoken 80-year-old stepped onto the floor, minutes after arriving from his home in Arizona. The bill Mr McCain helped to advance – a version of the “repeal and replace” bill passed by the House – is notably unpopular with voters.
By the time police showed up at a Walmart in San Antonio around 12:30 a.m. Sunday and looked in the back of the truck, eight passengers were dead and two more would soon die in an immigrant-smuggling attempt gone tragically awry. The details of the journey were recounted Monday by a survivor who spoke to The Associated Press and in a federal criminal complaint against the driver, James Matthew Bradley, who could face the death penalty over the 10 lives lost. Mexican consulate and U.S. officials later told AP the correct spelling was Lara Vega.
The Philippines tried Wednesday to reassure Southeast Asian neighbours about its proposal to partner with Beijing in oil exploration in the disputed South China Sea, promising to consult them on any plans. President Rodrigo Duterte has softened his predecessor's policy opposing China's claims -- which expand to nearly the entire sea -- causing alarm among neighbouring Southeast Asian countries, which also hold partial claims. On Monday Duterte said his government was in talks with China over joint drilling for natural resources in the sea, reversing years of tensions.

In a ruling which could have far-reaching consequences for how the European Union deals with migrants in future, the European Court of Justice on Wednesday upheld the right of member states to deport asylum-seekers to the first EU country they enter. The ruling amounted to an effective rejection of Angela Merkel’s controversial “open-door” refugee policy, which saw more than one million asylum-seekers flood into Germany. The court ruled that the EU’s Dublin regulations, under which refugees must seek asylum in the first member state they enter, still apply despite the unprecedented influx of 2015.
Federal investigators who examined the wreckage of a small airplane crash that killed four people earlier this month in Georgia concluded that the aircraft broke apart in midair after flying into a thunderstorm. The National Transportation Safety Board released a preliminary report Tuesday into the July 1 crash, which occurred in Murray County, about 90 miles (145 kilometers) northwest of Atlanta. The agency concluded the plane "was destroyed during an inflight breakup" and said witnesses were watching a thunderstorm overhead when the crash occurred.
An artist’s rendition of what President Trump’s proposed wall would like, according to his stated specifications. The ever-evolving vision for the wall President Trump wants to build along the border with Mexico got some new details earlier this month, the latest in the growing list of specifications for meeting Trump’s signature campaign promise — which is still in need of a source of funding. “One of the things with the wall is you need transparency,” said Trump, referring to the physical construction, not the political process by which it is authorized, designed and paid for.

The teenager, who has not been identified, was allegedly told to “keep his mouth closed” by Marty Webb, the Principal of the high school he attended in Oklahoma.

The Lebanese Shiite movement has waged a five-day offensive across the scraggy landscape known as Jurud Arsal to oust what it says are ex-Al-Qaeda Syrian jihadists. On Wednesday, Hezbollah brought journalists to its positions overlooking the last pocket of enemy territory.
Summer is here and the time is right to go overboard with summer squash recipes! One of my go-to summer meals is the zucchini boat, which can best be described as a sort of “flatbread” with a long slice of zucchini standing in for crust.

Researchers regularly remind us that the world’s oceans are still hiding some truly remarkable secrets, but when we imagine new species of ocean life it’s usually tucked away in the crushing depths, or so tiny that we somehow didn’t notice it up until now. An all-new species of ocean sunfish was just discovered that throws those expectations completely out of the window, weighing in at over two tons and making regular trips near the surface in order to keep warm, but it’s a remarkable find nonetheless. Researchers led by Marianne Nyegaard of Australia’s Murdoch University discovered the new sunfish species after looking closely at over 150 DNA samples from various sunfish.
