    Iceland raises volcano alert to red

    Iceland raised its alert over the nation's largest volcanic system to red on Saturday, banning all air traffic in the area, after detecting a small sub-glacial eruption. A major explosion at the Bardarbunga volcano could signal a replay of the global travel chaos triggered when another Icelandic peak blew four years ago, creating a massive ash cloud across Europe. "There is an ongoing eruption beneath the glacial surface, probably a small eruption which has not been enough to melt the ice cap," Iceland Met Office official Theodor Hervasson told AFP. Police said a number of tourists were being evacuated in an area located north of the Bardarbunga volcano, which lies in southeast Iceland.

  • Merkel says tightening Ukraine-Russian border is key to peace deal

Merkel was visiting Kiev as a prelude to a meeting next week between the Russian and Ukrainian leaders that diplomats say is the best chance in months of a peace deal in eastern Ukraine, where government forces are fighting pro-Moscow rebels. NATO has alleged Russia's military is active inside Ukraine helping the rebels, and Moscow angered Kiev and its Western allies by sending an aid convoy into Ukraine against Kiev's wishes.

    New York (AFP) - "What do you want to be? A jihadist, or to execute a martyrdom operation?" In the "caliphate" recently proclaimed by jihadists in Syria and Iraq, even young children are indoctrinated, and Sharia law is backed by the gun, according to a gripping documentary offering one of the first glimpses of life in Raqqa, power base of the so-called Islamic State (IS). Part 1 of a five-episode series, The Islamic State, filmed by Anglo-Palestinian journalist Medyan Dairieh was released Thursday by New York-based Vice News.
