WASHINGTON: The US State Department said on Thursday it was suspending security assistance to Pakistan until Islamabad takes action against the Afghan Taliban and the Haqqani network, which Washington believes is destabilizing the region.
State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said she could not provide a dollar value for the suspended aid because the administration was still calculating the types of aid affected by the decision. She said some of the aid could still be permitted if Islamabad takes decisive action against the groups.

NEW YORK: Mark Zuckerberg says his "personal challenge" for 2018 is to fix Facebook.
The Facebook CEO has declared a goal each year since 2009. Past challenges have included wearing a tie every day, learning to speak Mandarin and eating meat only from animals he killed himself.
Last year, he visited every US state he hadn't been to yet. Zuckerberg wrote Thursday that he now wants to focus on protecting Facebook users from abuse, defending against interference by nation-states and "making sure that time spent on Facebook is time well spent."

NEW YORK: Saudi Arabia's lawyers say a judge should reject a New York lawsuit by victims of the Sept. 11 attacks trying to hold the Kingdom to blame.
The lawyers said in a Manhattan federal court filing Thursday the plaintiffs lack evidence despite a new law by Congress enabling claims against Saudi Arabia. Other lawsuits against Saudi Arabia were rejected before Congress passed a 2016 law allowing the litigation.

GAZA CITY: Hundreds of Palestinians protested in the Gaza Strip on Thursday against electricity cuts and worsening economic conditions in the coastal enclave, an AFP journalist reported.
The demonstrators rallying in the Jabaliya refugee camp vented their anger against both the Palestinian Authority of president Mahmud Abbas and the Islamist movement Hamas, which runs Gaza.
Gaza's two million residents have been subjected to a decade-long blockade by Israel, which says it imposes the tight controls to prevent Hamas attacks on its territory.
