The conflict in Syria is a struggle between the United States and Iran whose outcome will decide whether the Middle East follows the path of an Iran-inspired Islamic movement or U.S. influence
"Mohsen Rezaie, secretary of the Expediency Council that advises supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, was quoted as saying by the Mehr news agency.

At least 18 killed in Yemen attack on intelligence HQ
"Suspected al Qaeda-linked militants killed at least 18 Yemeni soldiers and security guards on Saturday in a car bombing and grenade attack on the intelligence service headquarters in Aden, the Defence Ministry and witnesses said.
The ministry said more bodies were believed buried under the rubble of the building, part of which was leveled in the attack in the southern port city. At least seven others were wounded before the militants fled.
But Islamist militants have carried out deadly suicide bombings on high-profile military and security targets since June, exposing the government's vulnerability."
"The attack in the heart of the port city underscored Al Qaeda's ability to launch deadly strikes despite a two-month Yemeni military offensive backed by the U.S."
