KHARTOUM: Talks between Sudan's ruling generals and protest leaders, held after weeks of standoff following a deadly crackdown on protesters, enter a second day Thursday with the key issue of forming a new governing body still unresolved.
Sudan has been rocked by a political crisis since the army ousted longtime ruler Omar Al-Bashir in April on the back of widespread protests, with the ruling generals resisting demonstrators' demands to hand power to a civilian administration.

BELGRADE, Serbia: Novak Djokovic is again under scrutiny in his native Serbia — this time because of inviting Goran Ivanizevic to join his coaching team at Wimbledon.
Serbia's state-controlled tabloids called it a "scandalous" partnership between the top-ranked Serb and the former Wimbledon champion from Croatia.
Croatia fought a bloody war for independence from Serb-led Yugoslavia in the 1990s and nationalist sentiments still run high in both countries.

TAIPEI: Taiwan's parliament has voted to tighten a law governing links with China, effectively barring many of its former top ministers and retired generals from attending Chinese government ceremonies.
Ties between China and Taiwan are frosty, with the mainland cutting off communications with the island's government after the election of Beijing-skeptic President Tsai Ing-wen three years ago.
