Anti-government protesters help an injured protester when pro-government protesters threw stones during a protest in CairoBy Maggie Fick and Shadi Bushra CAIRO (Reuters) - At least 17 people were killed on Sunday in Egypt's bloodiest protests since Abdel Fattah al-Sisi was elected president, as security forces fired at protesters marking the anniversary of the 2011 uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak. Gunfire and sirens could be heard in Cairo into the night as armoured personnel carriers moved through the centre of a city where security forces had once again used lethal force against dissenters. A Health Ministry spokesman said at least 17 people had been killed at protests across the country. The anniversary was a test of whether Islamists and liberal activists had the resolve to challenge a government that has persistently stamped out dissent since the then-army chief Sisi ousted elected Islamist president Mohamed Mursi in July 2013 after mass protests against his rule.

Malian soldiers train for an ambush at the EU training mission headquarters in KoulikoroUnidentified gunmen clashed with Malian security forces in the northern region of Timbuktu on Sunday, killing at least three soldiers, officials said. The fighting took place between Timbuktu and the town of Goundam after security forces came across gunmen who had seized and were robbing a group of travellers on the remote desert road. Oumar Abocar Toure, the mayor of the nearby commune of Douekire who was among the group initially seized by the gunmen, said the major in charge of the Malian military unit and two other soldiers were killed in the exchange of fire. Colonel Souleymane Maiga, spokesman for Mali's armed forces, said a pickup truck with a mounted machinegun had been recovered and the situation was now under control.

U.S. President Obama and India's PM Modi wave towards the media during a photo opportunity ahead of their meeting at Hyderabad House in New DelhiBy Sanjeev Miglani NEW DELHI (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama watched a dazzling parade of India's military might and cultural diversity on Monday, the second day of a visit trumpeted as a chance to establish a robust strategic partnership between the world's two largest democracies. It rained on the parade through the heart of New Delhi, but excitement nevertheless ran high over Obama's landmark visit, which began on Sunday with a clutch of deals and 'bromance' bonding with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Most significant was an agreement on two issues that, despite a groundbreaking 2006 pact, had stopped U.S. companies from setting up nuclear reactors in India and had become one of the major irritants in bilateral relations. The bonhomie was a remarkable spectacle, given that a year ago Modi was persona non grata in Washington and was banned from visiting the United States for nearly a decade after deadly Hindu-Muslim riots in a state he governed.
