Spanish Socialist Party (PSOE) leader Pedro Sanchez gestures during a press conference at the PSOE headquarters in Madrid following his resignation as party head during an extraordinary meeting of the PSOE Federal Committee on October 1, 2016The embattled head of the Spanish Socialists Pedro Sanchez resigned Saturday after losing a vote among top party members, in a move that could pave the way to unblocking the country's political paralysis. Since December 2015, the country has been without a fully-functioning executive as rivals have failed to agree on a government following two elections in which none of the main parties won an absolute majority. Sanchez's announcement came after 17 of his 35-strong executive quit together on Wednesday in a bid to force the 44-year-old Socialist Party (PSOE) leader out.

The six-member Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) demanded on Saturday that the U.N. intervene in Syria to stop aerial bombardments of the city of Aleppo that it said were killing hundreds of civilians. The Sunni Muslim dominated council - representing Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and Qatar - said a Syrian government offensive on the city was systematically destroying neighborhoods and a "flagrant aggression contrary to international laws." "The Secretary-General ... demands that the UN Security Council intervene immediately to stop the aggression on the city of Aleppo and end the suffering of the Syrian people," the GCC said in a statement on Saudi state news agency SPA. It called on the United Nations to "implement relevant council resolutions over the Syria crisis." For 10 days a Russian-backed Syrian government offensive has been underway to capture eastern Aleppo and crush the last urban stronghold of a revolt against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad that began in 2011.
