More than 90 people were wounded, the Saudi health minister told state television. Islamic State said in a statement that one of its suicide bombers, identified as Abu 'Ammar al-Najdi, carried out the attack using an explosives-laden belt that killed or wounded 250 people, U.S.-based monitoring group SITE said on its Twitter account.

General Motors is negotiating what could be a record fine with US justice authorities after a federal investigation into a defect linked to at least 104 deaths uncovered criminal wrongdoing, the New York Times reportedGeneral Motors is negotiating what could be a record fine with US justice authorities after a federal investigation into a defect linked to at least 104 deaths uncovered criminal wrongdoing, the New York Times reported. The Times cited people familiar with the inquiry as saying that a settlement likely to surpass the $1.2 billion paid out by Toyota over sudden unintended acceleration could be reached in the next few months.

After four weeks of negotiations at the United Nations on ways to improve compliance with the pact, there was no consensus among its 191 signatories.
