Iraqi Shiite Muslim fighters hold a position on the Jurf al-Sakhr front line, the scene of heavy fighting against advancing Jihadist militants and fighters of the Islamic State (IS), south of the capital Baghdad, on August 18, 2014Iraqi officials worked Saturday to calm soaring tensions after the killing of 70 people at a Sunni mosque, as Washington branded the beheading of an American journalist a "terrorist attack." The attack at the mosque in Diyala province on Friday, which most accounts said was the work of Shiite militiamen, threatens to increase already-significant anger among Iraq's Sunni Arab minority with the Shiite-led government and to undermine an anti-militant drive that requires Sunni cooperation. It came as the US, which is carrying out air strikes in Iraq against Islamic State (IS) jihadists, ramped up its rhetoric over the grisly killing of journalist James Foley, carried out by the group and shown in a video posted online. Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes said the beheading of Foley "represents a terrorist attack against our country".

CAIRO (Reuters) - Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called on Saturday for a swift resumption of the Cairo-mediated talks between Israel and the Palestinians that failed last week to put an end to the Gaza crisis. "My main goal is for the truce talks to resume in Egypt as soon as possible to avoid more casualties and sacrifices," Abbas told a news conference after meeting Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.
