Militants attack checkpoint in Yemen

Suspected al-Qaida militants attacked a security checkpoint in southeastern Yemen on Monday, first sending in a suicide car bomb then storming it, officials said. They killed 22 troops and left only one survivor, who pretended he was dead. The militants launched the surprise attack near the town of al-Rayda in Hadramawt province, gunning down members of the Central Security Forces while they slept in their quarters nearby, local security officials said.

Syrian rebels seize border crossing * Syrian rebels linked to al- Qaida took control Monday of a key border crossing connecting Turkey to a Syrian province considered the heart of support for the government of President Bashar Assad, in heavy fighting that took the lives of three members of Assad's family. Syrian state television accused both the rebels and Turkey of using the Turkish side of the Kasab border crossing to ambush government forces on Friday. That sparked a broader confrontation that saw both sides heavily reinforce their positions over the weekend.

529 Morsi backers get death sentence * An Egyptian judge sentenced 529 supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi to death Monday in an unprecedented verdict that shocked the nation and dashed any hopes that Egypt's capricious judicial system would render justice to government opponents.

Starting today, Obama will spend her last two days in China in Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province, where she will meet with students and, along with her mother and daughters, visit a research base that is home to giant pandas. Her final stop before returning to Washington will be lunch at a Tibetan restaurant in Chengdu.

Mining company halts work after protests * British mining company Anglo American Plc has halted operations at its Los Bronces copper mine in Chile, saying it wants to guarantee safety of its employees after violent protests by contractors. Los Bronces is in the Andes mountains about 40 miles from the capital of Santiago.
