Saudi Arabia and the UAE helped broker a truce between warring factions in the area after heavily armed militiamen seized a local military barracks sparking clashes that killed 38 and injured more than 200.

FRANKFURT: The increasing strength of the euro against other currencies such as the dollar does not threaten to slow mounting growth in the euro area, Germany's central bank chief said.
"The recent appreciation in the euro seems unlikely to jeopardize the expansion," Bundesbank head Jens Weidmann said in a speech.
"It is, at least in part, rather a reaction to the brighter growth prospects of the euro area," he said.

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea: Forty-five Russian athletes will have to wait until Friday, the opening day of the Pyeongchang Olympics, to find out if they can compete.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport heard the case of the 45 Russian athletes — including numerous medal contenders — and two coaches on Thursday. It will announce its ruling on Friday, nine hours before the opening ceremony.
Six other Russian athletes' appeals were thrown out. CAS said it "lacked jurisdiction" to hear the cases.

CAESAREA, Israel: A 1,800-year-old mosaic of toga-clad men dating back to the Roman era has been unearthed in Israel, archaeologists said on Thursday.
The mosaic was discovered during the excavation of a building from the Byzantine period — some 300 years younger than the mosaic it was on top of — in the coastal city of Caesarea.
"The surprise was actually that we found two beautiful monuments from the glorious days of Caesarea," Peter Gendelman, co-director of excavation for the Israel Antiquities Authority, told Reuters of the building and mosaic.

PARIS: The United States and its European allies should ensure the 2015 nuclear deal is a success before demanding to negotiate on other issues such as Tehran's regional activities or ballistic missile program, Iran's deputy foreign minister said on Thursday.
"Now they ask Iran to enter discussions on other issues. Our answer is clear: make the (deal) a successful experience and then we discuss other issues," Abbas Araqchi told a conference.
He said the new US administration's policy on Iran was "destructive" and violated the terms of the accord with world powers.
