But, having witnessed its gallantry in the face and aftermath of attack, I'm now one who's had a change of heart. When it comes to giving back to the community, no one does it quite like Grammy Award winning superstar Kelly Rowland.
Afghanistan is expected to finalize a peace deal with a notorious militant group in the coming days, in what could be a template for ending the 15-year war with the Taliban, a government official and a representative of the militant group said on Saturday.
The deal is partly symbolic as the group in question, Hezb-i-Islami, has been largely inactive for years, but it marks a breakthrough for President Ashraf Ghani, who has made little progress in reviving peace talks with the far more powerful Taliban. Under the 25-point agreement, a draft of which was seen by The Associated Press, Hezb-i-Islami would end its war against the government, commit to respecting the Afghan constitution and cease all contact with other insurgents.
Ataul Rahman Saleem, deputy head of the High Peace Council - a government body charged with negotiating an end to the war - told the AP that the deal could be completed on Sunday, after two years of negotiations. Hezb-i-Islami is led by warlord Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, whose forces killed thousands of people in Kabul during the 1992-96 civil war. Hekmatyar, in his late 60s, is designated a "global terrorist" by the United States and blacklisted by the United Nations. The Obama administration has welcomed the progress toward a peace agreement and said it supports an Afghan-led resolution to the conflict. US officials declined to say publicly whether the US would consider lifting the terrorist designation subjecting the group to sanctions if the agreement is reached. Ghani's spokesman, Zafar Hashemi, would not comment directly on the Hezb-i-Islami deal, telling reporters on Saturday that "the doors are open for peace talks" to all groups. Negotiations began in July 2014, Karim said, when Hekmatyar received a letter from Ghani, who was then campaigning to become president. But progress stalled after President Barack Obama decided against a complete withdrawal and instead to leave a 10,000-strong, largely noncombat force in the country through the end of 2016. The multinational forces fighting the Islamic extremists of Boko Haram have arrested five of the group's leaders and freed dozens of captive women and children, Cameroon's government announced on Saturday. The raids targeting Boko Haram bases in the northern Madawaya forest earlier this month freed 28 children and at least 18 women, government spokesman Issa Tchiroma said. Boko Haram had set up camp in the forest after fleeing another military operation in neighboring Nigeria and had been training captive young girls and women as suicide bombers, he said. The news came as French President Francois Hollande joined several West African leaders at a summit in Abuja, the Nigerian capital, where they discussed progress in the fight against Boko Haram and how to resolve the humanitarian crisis it has created.
Both leaders stressed the success of a multinational force of Nigeria and its neighbors - helped by training, intelligence and information-sharing by France, Britain and the United States - that has recaptured territory where Boko Haram had declared an Islamic caliphate. But many refugees say they will not return home until it is safe and there are doubts Nigeria's military can secure the vast rural areas where Boko Haram now roams.
Police identified the suspect as Shariful Islam Shihab, a former member of the banned Islamic group Harkatul Jihad.
Shihab, 37, was arrested in the southwestern district of Kushtia, Munirul Islam, head of a newly formed police counterterrorism unit, told a news conference. There have been a series of recent attacks targeting atheists, moderates and foreigners in Bangladesh. Islam said that Shihab allegedly killed Xulhaz Mannan, who worked for the US Agency for International Development, because he was a gay rights activist and promoted the gay community's cause through a magazine as an editor.
He said Shihab told police during questioning that he took part in stabbing to death Mannan and his friend as ordered by his group's high command. Police earlier said they identified at least five people who took part in the killings on April 25 from video footage collected from buildings near the crime scene in Dhaka's Kalabagan area.
The Bangladeshi branch of al-Qaida had claimed responsibility for the April 25 killing of Mannan and his friend, Tanay Majumder. Police escort suspect Shariful Islam Shihab in Dhaka, Bangladesh, on Sunday after his arrest in connection with the murder of two gay rights activists. The celebration comes after a three-year redesign that nearly tripled the building's gallery space and added sculpture gardens, education spaces, a giant living wall and outdoor terraces with sweeping city views. The $305 million expansion includes almost 170,000 square feet of new and renewed indoor and outdoor galleries, museum officials said.
It opened to the public with 19 inaugural exhibitions showcasing painting and sculpture, photography, and architecture and design work by top artists, including Frida Kahlo, Henri Matisse, Andy Warhol, Charles Ray, Diane Arbus and Mark Bradford. Highlights include 260 pieces of art from the collection of Doris and Donald Fisher, who founded the Gap, more than 600 works promised through the museum's Campaign for Art, and pieces from the New Pritzker Center for Photography Inaugurate Museum, museum officials said. The renewed museum, whose lobby welcomes people with a massive spiraling sculpture by Richard Serra, will also offer free access to 18-year-old and younger visitors and will open every day.
Yachiyo Hamilton of Richmond, California, was one of about 5,000 people who snatched free tickets last month to visit the museum on opening day.
She said she and her mother are also excited about the living wall, which is sustained by rain and recycled water and features more than 15,000 plants. A truck and an overcrowded motorized rickshaw collided in southern India, killing 16 people, half of them from a single family, police said on Sunday.
Ex-London Mayor Boris Johnson has compared the European Union's aims to those of Adolf Hitler, arguing that the 28-nation bloc is creating a superstate that mirrors the attempt of the Nazi leader to dominate the European continent. A fire in a slum in Brazil has consumed scores of homes and other wooden structures and displaced hundreds of people. Italy's health minister is proposing doubling a 'baby bonus' incentive for couples to have more children to combat what she calls a catastrophic decline in the country's birth rate. The Islamic State group launched a coordinated assault on Sunday on a natural gas plant north of Baghdad that killed at least 12 people, according to Iraqi officials. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says most Canadians have yet to grasp the lengths to which firefighters went to save nearly 90 percent of the oil sands capital of Fort McMurray from a massive wildfire that forced the evacuation of more than 88,000 people. After living in a state of emergency for four months, Venezuelans learned on Saturday they have to continue this way for another 60 days, and possibly through 2017. After signing a decree for the extension, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said the decision aims to help restore production capacities, provide better protection for the populace, maintain national stability, and uphold peace. Speaking at a massive gathering of supporters in central Caracas on Saturday, Maduro announced some of the actions to be taken under the decree, which has not yet been published. He said anyone trying to sabotage the country would be held responsible: They would be expelled from the country or thrown into prison.
The Venezuelan leader said a day earlier on national TV that some domestic forces were scheming with foreign ones to stage a coup in the country. Maduro on Saturday also ordered the military to hold war games within a week to counter perceived foreign threats. The decision to get troops ready for battle came after former Colombian President Alvaro Uribe in an interview on Thursday urged Venezuela's armed forces to take up arms against the state.
When talking about the situation in Venezuela, Uribe, now a Colombian senator, said the Venezuelan military should use their weapons to defend human rights and political freedom, rather than fighting for a dictatorship, local media reported. On Saturday, Venezuela's Armed Forces issued a statement reaffirming their allegiance to the government, saying they categorically condemn "the systematic campaign orchestrated abroad to discredit and provoke Venezuela".
Venezuela announced a 60-day state of emergency on Jan 14 amid a soaring inflation and a severe shortage of products.
The Lebanese militant group Hezbollah said on Saturday that the explosion in Damascus that killed its top militant commander was caused by insurgent shelling and vowed to continue fighting alongside the Syrian government until the rebels are defeated. Mustafa Badreddine was the highest-ranking Hezbollah militant to be killed since the group joined Syria's civil war four years ago. Hezbollah said the blast near the Damascus International Airport was caused by artillery shelling from "takfiri" groups, a term Hezbollah uses to refer to Sunni extremists. The area on the southern edge of the Syrian capital is known to host positions of several militant groups, including al-Qaida's branch in Syria, known as the Nusra Front. A Lebanese politician with close links to the Syrian government told The Associated Press that Badreddine was killed on Thursday night when a shell exploded near him outside a Hezbollah center near the airport. He said Badreddine might have been killed by the pressure of the blast since his shrapnel wounds did not appear to be fatal. Hezbollah and the Syrian army have a heavy presence around the airport, which includes a military base, the politician said. Rami Abdurrahman, who heads the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said that according to his network of activists in the area, there has been no shelling in the airport area since Wednesday. Hezbollah's statement said Badreddine's killing will only boost the group's "will and intention to continue fighting these criminal gangs until they are defeated".
It added that defeating insurgent groups in Syria was "the wish" of Badreddine, who was also known among the group's ranks as Zulfiqar.
Hezbollah's statements indicate it will continue to be deeply involved in the conflict next door, which has killed more than 250,000 people since 2011, including more than 1,000 Hezbollah fighters.
Up: Crew members of the Harmony of the Seas cruise ship attend the delivery ceremony of the boat in Saint-Nazaire on Thursday. The world's biggest-ever cruise ship, the 120,000-ton Harmony of the Seas, a luxury home on the waves for 8,500 passengers and crew, was handed over by a French shipyard on Thursday after a 40-month engineering feat. At 66 meters, it is the widest cruise ship ever built, while its 362-meter length makes it 50 meters longer than the height of the Eiffel Tower. The floating town, which cost close to one billion dollars, has 16 decks and will be able to carry 6,360 passengers and 2,100 crew members. The ship was built for US-based Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd by the STX France boatyard in Saint-Nazaire on the Atlantic coast, where a spectacular ceremony marked the handover on Thursday. Among the onboard attractions are "The Ultimate Abyss", a 10-story slide from the top deck to the main deck which RCCL bills as the world's biggest ship-mounted waterslide.
A giant climbing wall, a rope slide, mini-golf, surf simulator, floating jacuzzis, a casino and 1,400-seat theater playing Broadway musicals are among the other attractions. The ship even has its own high street, and a "Central Park" deck featuring 12,000 plant species. Harmony of the Seas will produce 20 percent less CO2 emissions than the next two largest ships in its class, partly thanks to air pumped into the hull to lighten its load. It took 2,500 workers at STX France around 10 million work-hours to complete the enormous vessel after work began in September 2013.
STX has built 120 cruise ships over its 150 years, and has another 11 lined up for the next decade.
Several hundred workers were still busy putting finishing touches to Harmony of the Seas before it leaves the port on Sunday, weather permitting, sailing for Southampton in southern England.
From there, it will embark on for its official maiden voyage on May 22 to its new home port of Barcelona, after which it will begin regular cruises through to late October.
The International Rhino Foundation said the female calf was born on Thursday, weighs about 20 kilograms and looks healthy and active. Only an estimated 100 Sumatran rhinos remain, mostly on the island of Sumatra, and several are in captivity.
The species was rediscovered in the Indonesian part of Borneo through trails and footprints in 2013.
But one member of the small population on Borneo died in April after a wound from a poacher's trap became infected. The calf is the second to its mother Ratu, who gave birth to a male named Andatu in 2012, which was the first rhino birth in captivity in Indonesia in 124 years. The foundation said Ratu was given a hormone supplement daily during her pregnancy to help ensure it went to full-term. Brazil's interim President Michel Temer gives a thumb up after the Senate voted to impeach President Dilma in Brasilia on Thursday. Brazil's interim president Michel Temer kicked off his new administration on Friday, seeking to resuscitate Latin America's largest economy and steer clear of the corruption scandal that helped bring down his predecessor.
The former vice-president installed a business-friendly Cabinet on Thursday, just hours after senators voted to suspend his boss-turned-enemy, Dilma Rousseff, and open an impeachment trial against her.
The tumultuous transfer of power ended 13 years of rule by the Workers' Party, which helped lift tens of millions of people from poverty but became mired in corruption scandals, recession and political paralysis. But Temer faces many of the same stumbling blocks as his predecessor, plus a few of his own.
Political analysts warned his honeymoon may not even last until he opens the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro on Aug 5 - South America's first. He will also face a deeply hostile left resentful of being sidelined in what it calls a "coup".
Temer appealed on Thursday for "dialogue" to heal the wounds of the impeachment battle, but stoked opponents' outrage with his cabinet appointments: all 24 of his ministers are white men. And Temer remains exposed to the swirling scandal at state oil company Petrobras, which has snared top members of his party, the PMDB, as well as Rousseff's PT.
A one-time guerrilla tortured under Brazil's military dictatorship in the 1970s, Rousseff was suspended over allegations she illegally used loans from state banks to boost public spending and hide the depth of the budget deficit during her 2014 reelection campaign. She claimed the accounting maneuver, known as "fiscal backpedaling", was commonly accepted practice in Brazil and is not an impeachable offense.
But in the all-night Senate session leading up to the impeachment vote, it was clear lawmakers were holding her responsible for far more than that, as one speaker after another attacked her for presiding over an economic collapse, a multi-billion-dollar corruption scandal and political gridlock.
She lost the vote 55 to 22 - far more than the simple majority the pro-impeachment camp needed in the 81-member Senate. Defiant to the end, she used what may have been her last speech from the presidential palace to condemn the "coup" against her yet again and urged her supporters to mobilize. The International Olympic Committee and Rio 2016 Organizing Committee said on Thursday that preparations for the Rio de Janeiro Olympics will not be affected by the Brazilian Senate's vote to continue the impeachment process against the president. With less than three months to go, the Rio Olympics is facing political turbulence, the Zika virus and the country's economic recession. Carlos Arthur Nuzman, president of Rio 2016 Organizing Committee, said: "We are private, not politics. At a news conference in Tokyo, Masuzoe apologized for causing public concern and said any incorrect balance in payments regarding his expenses claimed from his former political funds body would be returned. The scandal-plagued governor said the suspicion was caused by the fact that his family were staying at the same hotel at which he was also attending an official conference and said any funds that were mistakenly expensed would be returned.


Masuzoe's remarks follow harsh public criticism for his lavish lifestyle which has called into question on Japan's political funding laws and the Tokyo governor's possible misappropriation of funds. Earlier this week, Masuzoe's expenses were called into question by a weekly magazine claiming that he paid $3,400 for a two-day stay at a luxurious resort hotel in Kisarazu, Chiba Prefecture, and expensed them as "conference fees" which were paid through his political fund group called Global Network Kenkyukai. The Tokyo governor has also been implicated in previous scandals, and spent $82,800 on art which he expensed through his fund group, listing the valuable collectibles as "supplies" and "expenses". Masuzoe, a former upper house member and governor of Tokyo since 2014, has also faced a public backlash this week for using an official car to make private trips to his villa located in the exclusive hot spring town of Yugawara in Kanagawa Prefecture, as well as traveling to a slew of international destinations using business class, and dining at expensive restaurants in Tokyo, including Italian and sushi restaurants.
In terms of the official car, Masuzoe has been found to have used the car 48 times to travel to and from his private villa since May last year, as well as using the car to travel to different work locations. Under Japan's Political Funds Control Law, politicians must report the use of political funds to both the internal affairs ministry and election administration commission. Straining to mend their party after months of chaos, Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan declared themselves "totally committed" to working together after a fence-mending personal meeting on Thursday. The surprisingly fervent show of unity capped a remarkable week that began with Ryan, the GOP's top elected officeholder and its 2012 vice-presidential nominee, turning his back on his party's presumptive presidential nominee just days after Trump had effectively clinched the nomination. Ryan said at the time he was not yet ready to back Trump, who had succeeded in insulting women, Latinos, disabled people and many conservatives in the course of a brutal primary season.
The two also issued a joint statement in which they pledged to work together to beat Clinton. Pilot Bertrand Piccard boards the experimental solar-powered aircraft before taking off from Phoenix, Arizona, on Thursday. A solar-powered airplane has landed in Oklahoma after taking off from Arizona on the latest leg of its around-the-world journey. The Swiss-made Solar Impulse 2 took off from Phoenix Goodyear Airport about 3 am on Thursday. It departed from northern California in the early hours of May 2 and landed at the airport southwest of Phoenix 16 hours later.
The globe-circling journey began in March 2015 from Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, and has made stops in Oman, Myanmar, China and Japan. After Oklahoma, the plane is expected to make at least one more stop in the United States before crossing the Atlantic Ocean to Europe or northern Africa, according to the website documenting the journey. The newspaper reported the crew likely will have to stay in Tulsa a few days to wait out the weather. The Solar Impulse 2's wings, which stretch wider than those of a Boeing 747, are equipped with 17,000 solar cells that power propellers and charge batteries. Ideal flight speed is about 45 kilometer per hour, although that can double during the day when the sun's rays are strongest.
The plane had a five-day trip from Japan to Hawaii and three-day trip from Hawaii to California's Silicon Valley.
The crew was forced to stay in Oahu, Hawaii, for nine months after the plane's battery system sustained heat damage on its trip from Japan. Project officials say the layovers give the two Swiss pilots - Bertrand Piccard and Andre Borschberg - a chance to swap places and engage with local communities along the way so they can explain the project, which is estimated to cost more than $100 million. The solar project began in 2002 to highlight the importance of renewable energy and the spirit of innovation. With her arms stretched out and her hands elegantly curved, the young dancer stamps her feet with aplomb, defying prejudice. Her art is reviled by many in religiously conservative Pakistan, where it is often linked with prostitution. Graceful and poised in her richly colored sari, she practices the odissi form of dance, in which movements of the face and hands are perfectly timed.
Dance is deeply embedded in Pakistani culture, in marriages, folk festivals and films - the complex choreography similar to that found in Bollywood. But for women to be seen dancing outside of a family setting, and worse still to perform for money is deeply frowned upon in the Muslim-majority country. Historically, classical dance in the subcontinent was the domain of tawaifs, courtesans of the Mughal Empire, which ruled India for hundreds of years until the advent of British rule in the 19th century.
Like the geishas of Japan, they were known as connoisseurs of the fine arts before their status deteriorated, especially under British rule, to mere prostitutes.
It is therefore necessary "to create this bifurcation and say that no, this is art also", according to Kazmi. Dance was banned in 1981 as part of an Islamization drive led by military leader Zia-ul-Haq.
His directive specifically targeted dancers wearing ankle bells, an essential accessory of the main classical forms which the authorities associated with obscenity and nudity.
The directive exists to this day but its application has eased, though new threats have emerged. Anyone in the audience "who feels that he might get to heaven by killing you can just walk up to the stage and do so," she said. Feriyal Aslam remains optimistic for the new generation, pointing out that these challenges are also an opportunity for innovation as dancers adapt traditional forms to the modern, local context.
Pakistani classical dancer Suhaee Abro talks during an interview at her home in Karachi in February. Neither of the two star lots had ever been auctioned, bearing out the prevailing wisdom that despite uncertain times, top quality works fresh to the market can perform well. Driven in part by what Sotheby's said was its highest-ever number of registered bidders from Asia, the sale saw spirited and competitive bidding both in the salesroom and via telephone. A record was set for Sam Francis, whose Summer #1 fetched $11.8 million, just shy of its high estimate. Most lots sold for within or above estimates, and Sotheby's officials were clearly pleased. Sotheby's announced that two lots, including an untitled work by Christopher Wool which sold for $13.9 million and achieved the night's fourth-highest price, were bought by Japanese businessman Yusaku Maezawa. On Wednesday, Christie's identified Maezawa as the buyer who paid a record-setting price for Jean-Michel Basquiat's untitled self-portrait, which soared to $57.3 million against an estimate of about $40 million. The collector also spent heavily on Adrian Ghenie's Self Portrait as Vincent Van Gogh, paying $2.6 million for a work estimated at just $200,000 to $300,000. Other highlights included an untitled Alexander Calder mobile which soared to $8.3 million including Sotheby's' commission of just over 12 percent, more than double its high estimate. The spring sales wrap up on Thursday with Christie's auction of Impressionist and modern art. Malaysia's government said on Thursday that two more pieces of debris, discovered in South Africa and Rodrigues Island off Mauritius were "almost certainly" from Flight 370, bringing the total number of pieces believed to have come from the missing Malaysian jet to five. The aircraft mysteriously disappeared more than two years ago with 239 people on board, and so far an extensive underwater search of a vast area of the Indian Ocean off Australia's west coast has turned up empty. Though the discovery of the debris has bolstered authorities' assertion that the plane went down somewhere in the Indian Ocean, none of the parts have thus far yielded any clues into exactly where and why the aircraft crashed. An international team of experts in Australia who examined the debris concluded that both pieces were consistent with panels found on a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 aircraft, Liow said. The jet, which vanished on March 8, 2014, while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, is believed to have crashed somewhere in a remote stretch of the southern Indian Ocean about 1,800 kilometers off Australia's west coast. Investigators are examining marine life attached to the debris to see if it could somehow help them narrow down where it entered the ocean, but haven't discovered anything useful yet.
The interior part, identified by its decorative laminate, is a panel from the main cabin and believed to be part of a door closet, the Australian Transport Safety Bureau said in a technical report.
But even this interior piece is also unlikely to prove very helpful to investigators, said Dell, the accident investigation expert. The lower Chamber of Deputies voted 372-51 with 99 abstentions to approve legislation already passed in February by the Senate. Gay rights activists hailed the vote as historic, given that Italy was the last of the European Union's 28 nations to grant legal recognition to civil unions. The legislation grants same-sex couples many of the same rights as married couples: the possibility of having the same last name, inheritance rights, hospital visitation rights and medical decision-making rights. The Vatican, which holds sway politically and socially in overwhelmingly Catholic Italy, maintains that marriage is a lifelong bond between man and woman. A man dressed as a friar speaks out against samesex civil unions outside the Italian Parliament in Rome on Wednesday, as a gay rights supporter, right, tries to drown him out with a bullhorn. Libya has not faced the same risk to its antiquities as Syria and Iraq, though there is evidence Islamic Sate is involved in the smuggling of antiquities, Libyan and international experts said on Wednesday.
The most famous classical sites have remained largely undamaged, though some illegally excavated artifacts are being smuggled out of the country and Islamist fighters have targeted mosques and Sufi shrines, the experts said on the sidelines of conference on how to protect Libya's cultural heritage. Libya is rich in ancient sites, including some of North Africa's finest Roman and Greek ruins as well as prehistoric rock art in the desert region of Fezzan. Islamic State took control of the coastal city of Sirte last year and established a presence in several other parts of the country, leading to fears that it would attack and damage key ancient sites as it has done in Syria and Iraq. Though Islamic State may still try to attack classical sites as they "search for visibility", a bigger risk is from illegal excavations and looting, and illicit construction by locals, said Stefano De Caro, the director-general of the International Center for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property. Ahmed Abdelkarim, head of Libya's department of antiquities, said extremist violence was the top risk one year ago, but that since Islamic State recently lost ground in and around the eastern cities of Benghazi and Derna, preventing illegal building around ancient sites was now the primary concern. Looting is also a problem, he said, with international mafia-style groups smuggling artifacts through Libya, and security forces had found antiquities last week in the recaptured house of an Islamic State commander in Benghazi.
Authorities had recovered artifacts on two other occasions in Benghazi and Derna, Abdelkarim said.
Ramadan Alshebani, a senior official from the department of antiquities in Tripoli, said Roman ruins at Leptis Magna and at Sabratha, where local brigades forced out Islamic State fighters after a U.S. But Alshebani said there was a "major problem" with attacks on mosques and Sufi shrines that the militants consider un-Islamic, with more than 20 such sites attacked in the capital alone.
Activists say many of the more than 2,200 animals at the zoo in the city of Surabaya are crowded into cages and enclosures far too small for them, and they also face a shortage of proper feed.
Zoo keepers attribute most of the deaths to natural causes, and said the tiger's death was still unexplained. An 18-month African lion was found hanging dead in its cage in 2014 and a dead giraffe was found with about 18 kg of plastic in its stomach - rubbish thrown into its cage by visitors.
About 45 Komodo dragons, a large species of lizards only found in eastern Indonesia, died in battles they fought against each other in their overcrowded cage. Veterinarians treat Fitri, 35, a female elephant at a Surabaya zooin East Java province on July 26, 2011.
Allen brought his 1930s Hollywood romance Cafe Society, along with stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg, to Cannes to kick off the French Riviera festival. No reporters asked Allen about Farrow's column or the decades-old sex abuse allegations at the press conference and Allen's publicist didn't return an email requesting comment on Wednesday.
The famed festival is coming six months after the Paris terrorist attacks that killed 130 people and as France remains in a state of emergency.
The United States switched on an $800 million missile shield in Romania on Thursday, a step it sees as vital to defend itself and Europe but which the Kremlin said is aimed at blunting its own nuclear arsenal. To the music of military bands at the remote Deveselu air base, senior US and NATO officials declared operational the ballistic missile defense site, which Washington said is capable of shooting down rockets from countries such as Iran that could one day reach major European cities. Before the ceremony, Frank Rose, deputy US assistant secretary of state for arms control, warned that Iran's ballistic missiles can hit parts of Europe, including Romania.
Admiral Vladimir Komoyedov, chairman of the Russian State Duma's defense committee, called the missile defense site a threat to Russia.
The readying of the shield also comes as NATO prepares a new deterrent in Poland and the Baltics.
Poland is concerned Russia may retaliate further by announcing the deployment of nuclear weapons to its enclave of Kaliningrad, located between Poland and Lithuania. The Kremlin said the shield's aim is to neutralize Moscow's nuclear arsenal long enough for the US to strike Russia in the event of war. However, Douglas Lute, the US envoy to NATO, said NATO would press ahead with NATO's biggest modernization since the Cold War. The US said Russia has ballistic missiles, in breach of a treaty that agreed the two powers must not develop and deploy missiles with a range of 500 kilometers to 5,500 km. The local prosecutor said on Wednesday the young woman threw herself under a commuter train at the suburban Egly station, south of Paris, after claiming she had been raped by her former boyfriend. The teenager, whose name was not released, sent a text message to a friend of her former boyfriend a few hours before she killed herself on Tuesday, prosecutor Eric Lallement said. On Tuesday, the woman spent more than two hours overall on Periscope in five live sessions. The video then cuts to a black screen, and what appear to be the voices of emergency personnel can be faintly heard.
In her own messages, the woman spoke a lot about her life and her difficult relationship with her former boyfriend, Lallement said. The video has been removed from Periscope, a cell phone live video-streaming app particularly popular among young people. Political leaders and analysts warned tensions could erupt into unrest as the opposition staged rallies across the crisis-hit South American country. Protesters were demanding electoral authorities quickly approve their call for a vote on dumping the leader.
Security forces blocked the street to keep demonstrators away from the headquarters of the National Electoral Board in Caracas. Democratic Unity Roundtable, the opposition coalition known as MUD, said one of its top leaders, Henrique Capriles, was affected by the tear gas as he led the march.
The Democratic Unity Roundtable blames Maduro for an economic crisis in which Venezuelans are having to queue for hours for rations of basic food and other goods.
Maduro has also imposed daily electricity blackouts and has public employees working just two days a week due to power shortages. Thousands of supporters of Maduro also rallied separately on Wednesday in the center of the capital.


Maduro also said he was extending the special emergency powers he has to rule by decree on economic policy for the rest of 2016, to "get past the economic emergency". The Democratic Unity Roundtable a week ago handed in 1.8 million signatures petitioning for a referendum.
Under electoral rules, the National Electoral Council was supposed to count those signatures by May 1 and then authenticate them within five days before authorizing the opposition to seek a further four million signatures to call a referendum. Venezuela has the biggest oil reserves in the world but its revenues have plunged in line with the price of crude in the past two years, starving the country of dollars to import goods. Maduro blames the crisis on a plot by capitalists and accuses the opposition of trying to mount a coup against him. An opposition supporter is squeezed between policemen during a rally to demand a referendum to remove President Nicolas Maduro in Caracas on Wednesday.
The Kenyan government said on Wednesday that it will close the Dadaab refugee camp, which has hundreds of thousands of Somali refugees and is often referred to as the world's largest camp.
Two suicide bombers attacked a police station west of Baghdad on Thursday, leaving two security personnel dead and eight others wounded, police and medics said. Fourteen people, including children, have been rescued off the Solomon Islands after being lost at sea for more than five weeks, surviving on betel nut skins, reports said on Thursday.
Britain's internal security service, MI5, increased the threat level of a mainland terror attack from moderate to substantial on Wednesday. Artist Randy Barton stands in front of severalmurals he painted inside an Albuquerque, New Mexico hotel room, which he transformed into an installation work he titled All Direction Protection. Dade Lahar stepped into the hotel room with splashes of electric blue and tepees outlined in neon green before scanning a mural that offered a contemporary take on Native American reservation life. It's also unique, and part of an ongoing project at Nativo Lodge, a boutique hotel in New Mexico's largest city, to transform guest rooms into spaces that owners say can be considered art pieces unto themselves.
In cities from Tokyo to Marseille, France, the concept of commissioning artists to convert guest rooms into contemporary, large-scale installation works has taken hold at a handful of hotels.
For New Mexico, where art connoisseurs and collectors may be more likely to hit places like Taos and Santa Fe, the collection of rooms at Nativo Lodge has created a new art stop along Interstate 25 amid a string of mostly chain hotels and businesses. She started recruiting emerging artists to paint rooms at the hotel several years ago with the idea of making contemporary Native American art more accessible to the general public outside of a gallery or museum setting, and at an affordable property, she said.
Guests who want to stay in an artist room can call in and request the room of their choice after viewing options online. So far, 12 artists - all from New Mexico - have transformed rooms at Nativo Lodge with large-scale paintings and murals. Scenes in the rooms convey Southwestern landscapes, figures from tribal stories and other Native American imagery.
In one room, Randy Barton, who started out as a street artist, painted a room last year with an abstract study on the 50 arrowheads of the Navajo Nation flag. Estella Loretto, a sculptor and painter from Jemez Pueblo, said she wanted to create a room that reflected on the sun and the "gift of a new day." Behind the room's queen-size bed, a turquoise sun rises against a yellow backdrop in one of several murals in the room. Last week, the hotel publicly unveiled its four newest artist rooms, which included Loretto's work and the ultracontemporary space that wowed Dade, the 9-year-old, at an open house. A selfportrait by HaitianAmerican artist JeanMichel Basquiat, who died at age 27 of a drug overdose. A huge self-portrait by Jean-Michel Basquiat brought $57.3 million at auction in New York on Tuesday, a record for the late US artist, Christie's said. On Tuesday, an unnamed Asian collector bought the massive two-and-a-half by five meter untitled self-portrait from 1982, painted in Italy. The young Haitian-American artist, who pictured himself in the work with a demonic image among popping colors, died of a drug overdose at age 27 in 1988. Auguste Rodin's Eternal Springtime marble sculpture of lovers fetched more than $20 million on Monday, a record for the French sculptor, at Sotheby's in New York. A statue of Adolf Hitler on his knees was auctioned on Sunday for $17.2 million, a record for a work by the Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan.
Basquiat's large, vibrant, untitled work from 1982 had been estimated to sell for about $40 million but two determined telephone bidders drove the final price to break the late artist's auction record by $8.5 million.
The sale took in a total of $318.4 million, well within the pre-sale estimate of about $280 million-$390 million.
The Basquiat record was especially significant in the current cautious climate, which follows years of soaring prices. Both Christie's and rival Sotheby's have assembled markedly smaller spring sales this week, with no works carrying estimates much beyond $40 million.
With hardship rising due to job cuts and inflation, Argentina has adopted a scheme from Europe's economic crisis: putting food in outdoor "social fridges" for the needy. So-called social or solidarity fridges, where people leave food for those who need it, popped up in countries such as Spain and Germany in recent years during the recession in Europe. Pondal launched his fridge in February and says there are now at least 50 others around the country. With its countless fields and livestock, Argentina is one of the world's biggest food producers.
But with inflation close to 40 percent, domestic prices are soaring and Argentines are finding their salary is not enough to buy the food they need. Researchers at the country's Catholic University estimated in a study that 1.4 million people fell into poverty in the first three months after Conservative President Mauricio Macri took office on Dec 10. Out in the open air during the day and shut up in a wooden cabin at night, the fridge is run by the charity Red Solidaria.
A senior representative of Hezb-i-Islami, Amin Karim, also said he expected Ghani to approve the final version of the agreement on Sunday.
He is believed to be in Pakistan, though Karim has said he is in an unspecified location in Afghanistan. Hezb-i-Islami should be part of the negotiations along with all other insurgent groups, a senior Obama administration official said in a statement.
Karim said he expected the president to give his final approval to the agreement soon after his return. Ghani pointed out that one of Hekmatyar's key conditions for peace - the withdrawal of all foreign troops from Afghanistan - was about to be met.
The extremist group has forced more than 2 million people to flee their homes, some across borders.
Marginalization and corruption has allowed the Islamic extremists to flourish in northeast Nigeria. British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond was at the summit along with US Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

All the victims came from the rickshaw and were on their way to a temple in Adilabad district of Telangana state on Saturday night.
Johnson, the most prominent political figure arguing that Britain should leave the EU, says the past 2,000 years of European history have been dominated by doomed attempts to unify the continent and recreate the Romans' golden age. Fire officials say the blaze began on Saturday evening in the Paraisopolis slum in west Sao Paulo, the country's largest city.

Ryan suggested that after initial hesitance, he may well end up endorsing the GOP candidate for president.
It landed without incident at Tulsa International Airport around 11:15 pm, the Tulsa World reported. My heart does not feel anything wrong," said anthropologist and professional dancer Feriyal Aslam, who practices Bharatanatyam, a form from southern India. Those elusive answers lie with the flight data recorders, or black boxes, which may never be found, said Geoff Dell, a specialist in accident investigation at Central Queensland University in Australia. Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said one is an engine cowling piece with a partial Rolls-Royce logo, and the other is an interior panel piece from an aircraft cabin - the first interior part found from the missing plane. Authorities had predicted that any debris from the plane that isn't on the ocean floor would eventually be carried by currents to the east coast of Africa. It won't, for example, answer the question that some have raised about whether anyone was still at the controls of the plane at the end of its flight, or whether the plane spiraled uncontrollably into the water after running out of fuel. But they voiced disappointment that the government had sacrificed a provision to allow gay adoption to ensure passage.
But their preservation has been threatened by the political chaos and security vacuum that followed the toppling of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.
But activists point to a string of unusual incidents that undermine their confidence in the zoo, which was founded in 1916. They say poor staff training and outdated facilities are to blame for the zoo's woeful record. But just minutes before their press conference, a column by Allen's son Ronan Farrow was posted online by The Hollywood Reporter in which he reiterated sexual abuse allegations against his father.
Allen has previously denied that he molested Dylan, allegations first leveled in 1992 when Dylan was seven and Allen and Mia Farrow were in the midst of a bitter divorce.
Led by Mad Max director George Miller, it includes Donald Sutherland, Kirsten Dunst and Son of Saul director Laszlo Nemes.
Moscow said the US-led alliance is trying to encircle it close to the strategically important Black Sea, home to a Russian naval fleet and where NATO is also considering increasing patrols. In response, Russia is reinforcing its western and southern flanks with three new divisions.
Russia has stationed anti-aircraft and anti-ship missiles there, able to cover huge areas and complicate NATO's ability to move around. The last one lasted 29 minutes and seemed to have been recorded moments before she killed herself, he said. The Dadaab camp, with an estimated 328,000 refugees, mostly from Somalia, the government says compromises Kenya's security because it harbors some of Somalia's al-Shabab Islamic extremists and is a conduit for smuggling weapons.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blasts, but they followed the bloodiest day in the city this year that saw at least 93 people killed by Islamic State bombs. Another woman on their boat died from dehydration and her body was thrown over board, with two of those picked up seriously ill. MI5 officials cited a threat of Northern Ireland-related terrorism for the change in threat-status. Owners of Nativo Lodge unveiled four new guest rooms they consider art pieces unto themselves. From one end of the wall to the other where the room's television stands, Barton painted lines shooting in nearly every direction to create asymmetrical geometric shapes in hues of beige, orange and brown.

The area is 270 kilometers northeast of Hyderabad, the state capital, said police officer A. Firefighters got it under control after about three hours, after about an area of 1,000 square meters had been torched.
Then several suicide bombers and militants broke into the plant and clashed with the security forces, an official said, adding that 25 troops were wounded.
In March, investigators confirmed two pieces of debris found along Mozambique's coast were almost certainly from the aircraft. He said the director of the archaeological site of Medinat Sultan, about 30 km east of Sirte, had told him by telephone about two months ago that it was also intact. Farrow questioned Cannes' continued embrace of Allen and chastised the press, who she said don't ask "the tough questions". Festival president Pierre Lescure says about 500 highly-trained security agents will be on guard around Cannes' red-carpeted headquarters, the Palais des Festivals. Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick also serenaded festivalgoers with an acoustic performance of Cindi Lauper's True Colors in a promotion for the upcoming DreamWorks Animations release Trolls, in which they voice the main characters.

The Papua New Guineans were attempting to travel between two islands on their country's east coast on April 4 but they had engine problems and ended up "helplessly drifting around parts of the Pacific Ocean", media reported.
