September 12, 2015 DUBAI (Reuters) – Iran has discovered an unexpectedly high reserve of uranium and will soon begin extracting the radioactive element at a new mine, the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organisation said on Saturday. The comments cast doubt on previous assessments from some Western analysts who said the country had a low supply and would sooner or later would need to import uranium, the raw material needed for its nuclear program. Any indication Iran could become more self-sufficient will be closely watched by world powers, which reached a landmark deal with Tehran in July over its program. […]

Strong wind and rains had uprooted trees and rocked cranes in the area, he said. A […]

September 11, 2015 By Sharon Bernstein SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Reuters) – Three men who foiled an attack by a suspected Islamist militant on a high-speed train headed to Paris were honored as hometown heroes in California’s state capital of Sacramento on Friday with a street festival and parade that drew thousands despite scorching heat.

September 11, 2015 (Reuters) – Republican Rick Perry, struggling to raise money and languishing near the bottom in presidential opinion polls, said on Friday he will drop out of the 2016 White House race. Perry, the former Texas governor, was excluded from the first two prime-time Republican debates and had been forced to stop paying many members of his campaign staff recently after his campaign funds ran low. “Today I am suspending my campaign for the presidency of the United States,” Perry said during a speech in St. Louis, Missouri, adding the party had a “tremendous” field of candidates. “I […]

September 11, 2015 By Steve Bittenbender MOREHEAD, Ky. (Reuters) – The calm that returned to Morehead, Kentucky – home to the county clerk who had refused to issue marriage licenses to gay couples – could be short-lived when Kim Davis returns to work on Monday, along with crowds of demonstrators and the media. Davis has been absent from work since she was released on Tuesday from a six-day stint in jail for her refusal to issue marriage licenses because it conflicted with her religious beliefs. Supporters and critics alike are wondering what Davis will do on Monday, and whether her […]

September 11, 2015 By John Irish and Louis Charbonneau PARIS/UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – United Nations inspectors will be present with Iranian technicians as they take samples from a key military site, two Western diplomats said, undercutting an objection by U.S. Republicans to the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.

Iran has denied that allegation, but agreed to accept comprehensive International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspections […]

September 11, 2015 By Patricia Zengerle WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The House of Representatives defeated a resolution on Friday backing the nuclear agreement with Iran in a symbolic vote engineered by congressional Republicans who object to the deal. House members defeated the measure 269 to 162 in a strongly partisan vote, part of an effort by Republicans to underscore their objections to the international accord despite a vote on Thursday in the Senate that blocked a Republican-led effort to kill it by passing a resolution of disapproval. “This deal is far worse than anything I could have imagined,” John Boehner, the […]

A third passenger confirmed their version of events, which Reuters could […]
