Dylann Roof, charged with murdering nine worshippers at a historic black church in Charleston last month, listens to the proceedings with assistant defense attorney William Maguire during a hearing at the Judicial Center in CharlestonBy Harriet McLeod CHARLESTON, S.C. (Reuters) - A friend of the suspected gunman accused of slaying nine black parishioners in a 2015 attack on a South Carolina church pleaded guilty in a federal court on Friday to lying to investigators and concealing knowledge of the crime. Joseph Meek, 21, had agreed in a deal with prosecutors to plead guilty to withholding information about a crime and making false statements to authorities investigating the massacre in Charleston, according to court documents filed this week. Under the agreement, Meek could be called to testify against his childhood friend, Dylann Roof, 22, who has been accused of opening fire during a June 17 Bible class at the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal church.

Syrian opposition figure Riad Hijab said on his Twitter account on Friday negations about the political future of Syria cannot take place while truce violations continue. "The situation is not suitable for talking about a political process in light of the horrific massacres and systematic violations of the truce, which no longer really exists on the ground," said Hijab, who is chairman of the opposition High Negotiations Committee (HNC) after a phone call with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. "(Kerry) stressed he is holding calls with Moscow to urge the regime to cease hostilities, respect the truce and enable an environment suitable for a political process by establishing a transitional body not containing Bashar al-Assad who has lost his legitimacy," Hijab said.
