Members of al Qaeda's Nusra Front gesture as they travel through the town of the northwestern city of Ariha, after a coalition of insurgent groups seized the area in Idlib provinceInsurgents who captured the last government-held town in Syria's Idlib province celebrated inside on Friday and made more advances in surrounding areas, in a further blow to the stretched army and allied militia. The "Army of Fatah" alliance which includes al Qaeda's Syria wing Nusra Front, the Islamist Ahrar al-Sham group and other factions, captured Ariha town on Thursday night as the Syrian military pulled back. The army has lost large parts of the northwestern province to insurgents since late March, when the provincial capital fell to Army of Fatah, a name which refers to Islamic conquest.

Both women wear white headscarves, subtle markers of their membership of the 2,000-strong stateless Zimbabwean Shona community who have been living invisibly among Kenyans for more than 50 years. Maposa moved to Kenya as a two-year-old with her parents in 1963.

By William Schomberg and David Ljunggren DRESDEN, Germany (Reuters) - Greece and its creditors need to quickly agree on a broad deal to address the Greek debt crisis and then work out the details before Athens hits deadlines for repayments, U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said on Friday. Lew, speaking to reporters after a meeting of policymakers from the Group of Seven economies, said a speedy deal would reduce the chances of an "accident" and he wanted to see a pragmatic outcome to the protracted crisis. Greece and its creditors from the euro zone countries and the International Monetary Fund are trying to hammer out a cash-for-reforms deal that would prevent the country from defaulting on its debt and potentially leaving the euro zone.
