    Senior Hamas official says group abducted Israeli teens

    By Noah Browning RAMALLAH West Bank (Reuters) - A top Hamas official said members of his militant group kidnapped three Israeli teenagers whose deaths in June provoked a spiral of violence that led to the war in Gaza, the first acknowledgement of the movement's involvement. Hamas, which controls Gaza, has up to now refused to confirm or deny Israeli accusations that it masterminded the abduction and killing of the three young men, one of them a joint U.S.-Israeli citizen, in Hebron. "The popular will was exercised throughout our occupied land, and culminated in the heroic operation by the Qassam Brigades in imprisoning the three settlers in Hebron," he said, referring to Hamas's armed wing. Jewish seminary students Eyal Yifrach, 19, and Gilad Shaer and Naftali Fraenkel, both 16, were abducted while hitchhiking in the Israeli occupied West Bank on June 12 and killed.

A critically endangered animal, only 100 to 180 Florida panthers are believed to be in existence. State biologists working at the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge in Naples stumbled by chance on the kitten that had been abandoned by its mother in her den, according to Karen Parker of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

    Kiev says Russian army vehicles seized as aid checks start

    Ukraine said Thursday it had captured two armoured vehicles belonging to the Russian military in the war-torn east as checks began on a disputed aid convoy from Moscow parked up at the border. Fighting between government forces and pro-Russian rebels raged in Ukraine's east as Kiev pressed on with an offensive to rout struggling insurgents ahead of a fresh round of diplomacy that will see the presidents of the two countries meet next week for the first time in months. Some 300 Russian trucks -- that Kiev fears could be used to help the insurgency -- inched closer to crossing the border into rebel-held territory after Ukraine's customs officials said they had started processing the first of the lorries after a week of wrangling.
