Members of the Iraqi army and Shi'ite fighters launch a mortar toward Islamic State militants outskirt the city of FallujaBAGHDAD/BEIRUT (Reuters) - Islamic State poured more fighters into Ramadi as security forces and Shi'ite paramilitaries prepared to retake the Iraqi city that fell to the Islamists a week ago in a major setback for the government. In Palmyra, the Syrian air force struck at buildings captured by the Sunni militant group, whose arrival has raised fears that the city's famed Roman ruins will be destroyed. The air force leveled Islamic State "hideouts" and killed a large number of its members around Palmyra's military air base, Syrian state media said.

Barcelona en Comu leader and mayoral candidate for Barcelona, Ada Colau (L), celebrates her party's victory in Spain's municipal and regional elections, on May 24, 2015 in BarcelonaSpain faced a dramatically changed political landscape on Monday after voters in local elections abandoned traditional parties, with an anti-austerity protest movement topping polls in Barcelona and possibly taking power in Madrid. The political shakeup following Sunday's elections comes amid voter anger over a sky-high unemployment rate of 24 percent, government spending cuts and corruption scandals that have rocked both Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy's Popular Party (PP) and the main opposition Socialists. In a test of the national mood ahead of general elections expected in November, the PP managed the most votes but still lost its absolute majorities in most regions and even fared poorly in historical strongholds.
