India strikes inside Pakistan after deadly Kashmir attack - The Mainichi

Pakistan says India launched an airstrike on its territory early Tuesday that caused no casualties, while India said it targeted a terrorist training camp in a pre-emptive strike that killed a "very large number" of militants.
The overnight raid was the latest escalation between the nuclear-armed rivals since a deadly suicide bombing in the disputed Kashmir region earlier this month killed more than 40 Indian soldiers. Pakistan has denied involvement in the attack but has vowed to respond to any Indian military operation against it.
The Pakistan-based militant group Jaish-e-Mohammad claimed responsibility. The bomber, who made a video before the attack, was a resident of Indian-controlled sector of Kashmir.

The targets included the Pentagon and the presidential retreat in Camp David, Maryland.
The report, unusual even by the sometimes bellicose standards of Russian state TV, was broadcast on Sunday evening, days after President Vladimir Putin said Moscow was militarily ready for a “Cuban Missile”-style crisis if the United States wanted one.

Algerians take to the streets over president's plan to seek fifth term | The Guardian

The Algerian capital, Algiers, has had its biggest street demonstrations in over a decade in recent days as crowds protested against Abdelaziz Bouteflika seeking a fifth term as president after 20 years in power.
Students are expected to lead fresh demonstrations on Tuesday after several days of angry protests that began on Friday when tens of thousands of people took to the streets in towns and villages across the country, including the capital.
It is rare for protests to be tolerated by authorities, particularly in Algiers, where demonstrations have been banned since 2001.
