Mali's government hopes to clinch a preliminary peace deal with northern Tuareg rebel separatists within eight weeks, the foreign minister said, ahead of talks due to start in Algeria on Monday. Mali's northern region - called Azawad by the Tuaregs - has risen up four times in the past 50 years, with various groups fighting for self-rule. The last uprising in early 2012 prompted a coup in the capital and allowed Islamist groups to seize northern Mali. Abdoulaye Diop told Malian state radio the first week of the Algiers talks would be devoted to discussions with the various Malian communities, especially those in the northern region.

Ashya King parents's lawyer, Juan Isidro Fernandez Diaz, arrives at the National court in Madrid, Spain, Monday, Sept. 1, 2014. A critically-ill 5-year-old boy driven to Spain by his parents, Brett and Naghemeh, against doctors' advice is receiving medical treatment for a brain tumor in a Spanish hospital as his parents await extradition to Britain, police said Sunday. Officers received a phone call late Saturday from a hotel east of Malaga advising that a vehicle fitting the description circulated by police was on its premises. Both parents were arrested and the boy, Ashya King, was taken to a hospital, a Spanish police spokesman said. (AP Photo/Andres Kudacki)LONDON (AP) — The grandmother of a 5-year-old British boy with a severe brain tumor accused U.K. authorities on Monday of cruelty for seeking an arrest warrant and pursuing the family abroad after his parents removed him from a British hospital against medical advice.

Kurdish peshmerga forces celebrate as they take control of Sulaiman Pek from the Islamist State militants, in the northwest of Tikrit cityBy Stephanie Nebehay GENEVA (Reuters) - Islamist fighters have carried out atrocities on "an unimaginable scale" in months of fighting with Iraqi forces who have also killed detainees and shelled civilian areas, a U.N. official said in an emergency debate on the conflict on Monday. Iraq's human rights minister, Mohammed Shia' Al Sudani, told the session that Islamic State militants, "oozing with barbarity", threatened his country and the world, but did not immediately respond to allegations against state troops. Islamic State has grabbed large areas of Iraq and neighboring Syria, declaring a cross-border caliphate and driving hundreds of thousands from their homes. At least 1,420 people were killed in Iraq in August alone, U.N. figures showed on Monday.
