England paceman James Anderson hopes to overcome a side injury in time for next month's fifth and final Ashes Test at The Oval. Anderson, England's most successful Test bowler with 413 wickets, had to leave the field midway through his ninth over on the second day of the third Test at Edgbaston. An England and Wales Cricket Board statement issued before play on Friday also ruled Anderson out of next week's fourth Test at Trent Bridge -- a ground where he has taken 53 wickets in eight Tests at an average of 19.24.
By Ali Sawafta DUMA, West Bank (Reuters) - Suspected Jewish attackers torched a Palestinian home in the occupied West Bank on Friday, killing an 18-month-old child and seriously injuring his parents and brother, an act that Israel's prime minister described as terrorism.

Ibrahim Dawabsheh, a Duma resident, said he heard people shouting for help from the house and rushed to it.
