Thousands of government supporters, some wearing clothing adorned with Mugabe's image, converged in Matabeleland on Saturday for a birthday bash and show of strength for the ruling ZANU-PF party, beset by squabbling in the past year as the elderly president weakened and factions, one including his wife Grace, sparred ahead of an expected power vacuum. The government has endured other crises, rejecting decades of opposition and Western allegations about human rights violations, voting irregularities and economic mismanagement. The memory of that episode prompted some anti-government activists to denounce the selection of Matopo Hills for Mugabe's birthday party, though ruling party figures said it will promote tourism in the area. Some ruling party members who support him have criticized Grace Mugabe, a leader in a rival faction who recently said her husband should run as a "corpse" if he dies before the next elections.

Iraqi intelligence officials estimate dozens of IS fighters and sympathizers remain in hiding in eastern Mosul's more than 60 square kilometers (23 square miles) of dense urban neighborhoods. A handful of clothing shops have reopened and residents have begun rebuilding homes damaged by airstrikes, car bombs and small-arms fire.

Under al-Maliki Iraqi security forces conducted raids inside Mosul and surrounding villages, arresting dozens of suspected militants at a time, in 2013 and 2014. "Right now we have the goodwill between the people and the security forces," said a Mosul resident and former officer in Saddam Hussein's military, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear for his safety.
Siti Aisyah also told authorities she did not want her parents to see her in custody, Andriano Erwin, Indonesia's deputy ambassador to Malaysia, said one day after Malaysia revealed that VX nerve agent was used in the bizarre killing at Kuala Lumpur's airport. The revelation that VX nerve agent killed Kim has boosted speculation that North Korea had dispatched a hit squad to Malaysia to kill Kim, whose younger half brother is Kim Jong Un. The thick, oily poison was almost certainly produced in a sophisticated state weapons laboratory, experts say, and is banned under international treaties. North Korea, a prime suspect in the case, never signed that treaty, and has spent decades developing a complex chemical weapons program. Senior police official Abdul Samah Mat, who is handling the investigation, did not specify what authorities found there, but said the items were being tested for traces of any chemicals.
