U.S., Russia trade blows over Syria as warplanes pound Aleppo

A man waters his plants in front of damaged buildings in the rebel-held Douma neighbourhood of DamascusBy Michelle Nichols and Suleiman Al-Khalidi UNITED NATIONS/AMMAN (Reuters) - The United States accused Russia of "barbarism" in Syria on Sunday as warplanes supporting Syrian government forces pounded Aleppo and Moscow said ending the civil war was almost "impossible". A diplomatic solution to the fighting looked unlikely as U.S. and Russian diplomats disagreed at a U.N. Security Council meeting called to discuss the violence, which has escalated since a ceasefire collapsed last week. Rebels, who are battling President Bashar al-Assad's forces for control of Aleppo, said any peace process would be futile unless the "scorched earth bombing" stopped immediately.

Trump tells Netanyahu he would recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital

Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu departs after meeting with Republican presidential nominee Trump at Trump Tower in New YorkBy Alana Wise WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Sunday told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that if elected, the United States would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the campaign said, marking a potential dramatic shift in U.S. policy on the issue. During the meeting that lasted more than an hour at Trump Tower in New York, Trump told Netanyahu that under his administration, the United States would "recognize Jerusalem as the undivided capital of the State of Israel." While Israel calls Jerusalem its capital, few other countries accept that, including the United States.

Spanish regional elections fail to break political deadlock

A woman casts her vote during the regional elections at a polling station in VigoBy Miguel Vidal and Vincent West SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA/BILBAO, Spain (Reuters) - Spain's regional elections reinforced the center-right People's Party (PP) on Sunday while dealing a blow to the opposition Socialists but failed to signal a clear path to avoid a third nationwide vote in December. The ballots in the northern regions of Galicia and the Basque Country boosted acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy while the Socialists lost seats in both regions, but it remains to be seen if the results lead the Socialists to abstain in any future parliamentary vote of confidence to allow Rajoy a second term as leader. Rajoy's PP easily romped to an absolute majority in his native Galicia, a conservative stronghold.
