Britain's Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg boards his campaign bus after campaigning with local candidate Vince Cable in TwickenhamBritain faces a disruptive second election before Christmas if either of the two main parties try to govern alone as minority governments after Thursday's ballot, Nick Clegg, the deputy prime minister and Liberal Democrat leader, warned on Tuesday. Two days before the country's closest election since the 1970s, Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservatives and the opposition Labour Party are level in most polls with neither on track to win outright.

Yemen's Houthi fighters fired mortar and rockets at a Saudi Arabian border town on Tuesday for the first time since a Saudi-led coalition began a military campaign against them in late March, the coalition's spokesman said. The projectiles struck a girls' school and a hospital in Najran, which is only three km (two miles) from Yemen's border, Brigadier General Ahmed Asseri said, prompting authorities to close down all schools in the area. The attack followed Monday's statement by Riyadh that it was considering a ceasefire to allow humanitarian relief and a call by President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, in exile in Saudi Arabia, for talks among Yemen's political factions. Unfortunately they hit a girls' school, they hit a hospital and they hit some houses," Asseri said in a phone interview.

Greek Evzoni guards march in front of the Greek parliament in Athens on May 5, 2015Greece and its creditors on Tuesday ruled out any bailout deal to avoid bankruptcy at a crunch meeting next week, with Athens blaming divisions between the EU and IMF for blocking an agreement. Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis led a troupe of Greek officials on a tour of European capitals in the hope of winning financial breathing space and avoiding a possible exit from the euro. Eurozone ministers meet on Monday in Brussels and there had been high hopes to end the three-month standoff over the new leftist government's refusal to implement reforms and unlock 7.2 billion euros in bailout cash. "Serious divergences and contradictions between the creditors, the European Union and International Monetary Fund, are hindering the negotiations" with Greece, the Greek government said in a statement.
