    Russia delivering weapons to Iraq: report

    Russia has begun supplying military helicopters and fighters jets to Iraq, a report said Thursday, as Iraq's defence minister visited Moscow to press for equipment to thwart a jihadist offensive. "A number of contracts with Iraq have entered into force and are being fulfilled," the Interfax news agency quoted a source in Russia's defence export establishment as saying. Iraq also has contracts for Mi-28 attack helicopters and mobile Pantsir-S1 surface-to-air and anti-aircraft artillery systems. Russia's ambassador to Baghdad, Ilya Mogunov, had previously said he believed up to 10 Sukhoi fighter jets would be delivered by the end of the summer.

  • U.S. Jewish group wants its award back from Turkey's Erdogan

    An association of Jewish Americans said Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan has become the world's "most virulent anti-Israeli leader" and demanded he return an award it gave him a decade ago, partly for his efforts to broker peace between Israel and Palestinians. The New York-based American Jewish Congress awarded Erdogan its "Profile of Courage" award in 2004 for what it said was his stance on fighting terrorism and working towards a peace. "Now, we want it back," the association's president, Jack Rosen, said in an open letter to Erdogan dated July 23 and made public on Thursday. He cited the Turkish leader's comments last weekend that Israel had "surpassed Hitler in barbarism" through its attacks on Gaza.

    Ukraine's PM resigns, complicating MH17 probe

    Ukraine's prime minister resigned after his governing coalition collapsed, plunging the former Soviet state into political limbo as it struggles to quell a deadly rebellion in the east. The shock announcement Thursday added to an already chaotic situation in the rebel-controlled east, where international experts are carrying out a complex investigation into last week's downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 that left 298 dead. Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said he was stepping down over the "dissolution of the parliamentary coalition and the blocking of government initiatives" after several parties walked out on the ruling group. The collapse of the ruling coalition paves the way for early elections to be called by President Petro Poroshenko within 30 days.

    Galaxy Note 4′s release timeframe may have just been revealed

    Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 is primed to be one of the highest quality smartphones the company has ever produced, and now reports are coming in that it might see a release shortly before the iPhone 6. According to ET News, the Galaxy Note 4 was rushed into production after the Galaxy S5 underperformed during its launch window, forcing Samsung to rethink its strategy for the rest of the year. Whereas the Galaxy Note 3 was released at the end of September last year, the Note 4 should make its debut at the beginning of the month this year. Mass production of the initial 5 million Galaxy Note 4 units should begin next month as several manufacturing partners have apparently been notified.

    LG G3 review: Android has a new king

    As I walked through Times Square on my way to the office one day last week, something odd caught my eye that made me do a double take. A sizable line had formed outside of the AT&T store as it prepared to open. I have seen people line up outside of that store before, of course, but typically only when a fresh batch of recently launched iPhones is waiting on the other side of the doors. This time, however, people weren’t lining up to buy a new iPhone. They were lining up for the just-released LG G3. And truth be told, this is a phone worth lining up for. The G3 is LG’s latest flagship smartphone and it couldn’t come
