Voters at a polling station during a parliamentary election in Tallinn on March 1, 2015Estonia's security-minded centre-left governing coalition took the lead in Sunday elections, held amid concerns over a militarily resurgent Russia, while the pro-Kremlin opposition lost ground, partial official results showed. Moscow's annexation of Crimea last year and its meddling in eastern Ukraine have galvanised the European Union, including eurozone member Estonia where a quarter of the 1.3 million population are ethnic Russian. Military manoeuvres by Moscow on Estonia's border just days ahead of the vote further stoked deep concerns in Europe that the Kremlin could attempt to destabilise countries that were in its orbit during Soviet times.

Spanish Prime Minister and leader of ruling Popular Party Mariano Rajoy speaks during a political meeting on March 1, 2015Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy on Sunday called on his Greek counterpart to get "serious" about his country's debt-wracked economy, after Alexis Tsipras accused eurozone partners of undermining its negotiations with Brussels. Rajoy was reacting to comments by Tsipras on Saturday, who said that during talks that earned Greece a four-month extension to its bailout, pressure from certain other European countries "had the character of blackmail" -- pointing especially to Spain and Portugal. He noted that Tsipras's hard-left Syriza party had tried to lay the blame for Greece's problems on Spain and neighbouring Portugal. Both Madrid and Lisbon have filed official protests against Tsipras's comments with Brussels, with Portuguese officials also firing back.


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu looks on before praying at the Western Wall, the holiest site where Jews can pray, in Jerusalem's Old City, Saturday Feb. 28, 2015. (AP Photo/Marc Sellem, Pool)By Matt Spetalnick and Dan Williams WASHINGTON/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - The United States and Israel showed signs of seeking to defuse tensions on Sunday ahead of a speech in Washington by Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu when he will warn against a possible nuclear deal with Iran. Policy differences over the negotiations with Iran remained firm, however, as Netanyahu set off for the United States to deliver the speech, which has imperilled ties between the two allies. Israel fears that U.S. President Barack Obama's Iran diplomacy, with an end-of-March deadline for a framework accord, will allow its arch foe to develop atomic weapons -- something Tehran denies seeking.

This undated image shows a frame from a video released Friday, Oct. 3, 2014, by Islamic State militants that purports to show the militant who beheaded of taxi driver Alan Henning . A British-accented militant who has appeared in beheading videos released by the Islamic State group in Syria over the past few months bears "striking similarities" to a man who grew up in London, a Muslim lobbying group said Thursday Feb. 26, 2015. Mohammed Emwazi has been identified by news organizations as the masked militant more commonly known as "Jihadi John." London-based CAGE, which works with Muslims in conflict with British intelligence services, said Thursday its research director, Asim Qureshi, saw strong similarities, but because the hood worn by the militant, "there was no way he could be 100 percent certain." (AP Photo)LONDON (AP) — As "Jihadi John," he was a terrifying figure, his identity concealed by a black mask, his threatening tone backed up by his oversize, serrated knife and his willingness to use it in the name of Islamic State and its self-declared caliphate.

Members of the special forces police stand guard in front of the Supreme Constitutional Court in CairoBy Ahmed Tolba and Mahmoud Mourad CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt's parliamentary poll looks set to be delayed after a court ruled part of an election law was unconstitutional and the main election committee said it was working on a new timetable for the long-awaited vote. President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi directed his government to amend the law within one month. Egypt has been without a parliament since June 2012 when a court dissolved the democratically elected main chamber, reversing a major accomplishment of the 2011 uprising that toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak. "The committee will prepare a new timetable for (election) measures after the legislative amendments are issued," the Supreme Election Committee said.


A general view of an oil field, West of Iraq's second largest city of Basra, on February 19, 2015Iraqi Oil Minister Adel Abdel Mahdi said Sunday he expects the price of crude oil, which dropped to a six-year low in January, to continue recovering to reach $64 or $65 per barrel. Brent North Sea crude, the global benchmark, had tumbled to $45 per barrel at the beginning of the year, less than half the level reached six months earlier. Iraq, which is hugely dependent on oil exports for revenue and is fighting a costly war against the Islamic State jihadist group, also owes more than $20 billion to the oil companies operating in the south, Abdel Mahdi said. Abdel Mahdi said that besides a budget allocation of close to $12 billion to pay those dues he planned to ask the government to issue the same amount in treasury bonds.

Russia's opposition supporters carry portraits of Kremlin critic Boris Nemtsov during a march in central Moscow on March 1, 2015US Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday urged Russia to carry out a "thorough, transparent, real investigation" into the murder of Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov, a fierce critic of President Vladimir Putin. "The bottom line is that we hope there will be a thorough, transparent, real investigation not just who actually fired the shots, but who if anyone may have ordered or instructed this or been behind this," said Kerry, speaking to ABC television's "This Week" program. Another leading figure in US politics, US Senator Dianne Feinstein, a former chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, went so far as to implicate Putin in Nemtsov's death. "Whether Putin authorized it, whether he didn't, whether he knew about it, whether it was his friends or some of his military doing this, we'll wait and see with the investigation," she said on the "Face the Nation" television program.

Estonian Prime Minister Taavi Roivas is tipped to hold onto power after legislative electionsEstonians voted Sunday in an election marked by jitters over a militarily resurgent Russia and a popular pro-Kremlin party, with the security-focused centre-left coalition tipped for another term. Moscow's annexation of Crimea last year and its meddling in eastern Ukraine have galvanised the European Union, including this eurozone member of 1.3 million people, a quarter of whom are ethnic Russian. Military manoeuvres by Moscow on Estonia's border just days ahead of the vote further stoked deep concerns in Europe that the Kremlin could attempt to destabilise countries that were in its orbit during Soviet times. NATO is countering the moves by boosting defences on Europe's eastern flank with a spearhead force of 5,000 troops and command centres in six formerly communist members of the alliance, including one in Estonia.

"Stop the war" in Ukraine, said others.

In this Wednesday, Feb. 18, 2015 photo, Jason Wang poses for a photo in the Las Colinas section of Irving, Texas. When Wang got into trouble at age 15, as a minor, he went to a juvenile lockup, where he took classes that eventually helped him earn a college scholarship. His friend, who was 17, went to prison for the same crime, where little effort was spent on trying to turn his life around. Since 1918, Texas has charged 17-year-olds as adults, even though they can’t vote, join the military or serve on juries. With the state at odds with a federal law governing the housing of juvenile prison inmates and docked about $800,000 in funding last year, some are pushing to raise the age of defendants classed as adults to 18. (AP Photo/LM Otero)AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Jason Wang and Johnny Truong were part of a gang that dressed as utility workers and held a suburban Dallas homeowner at gunpoint, making off with $68,000 in cash, electronics and jewelry before they were eventually caught.

For his part, Netanyahu, who will also address the annual policy conference of the pro-Israel AIPAC lobby, has refused to back down.
