By Gul Yusufzai QUETTA, Pakistan (Reuters) - Militant group Islamic State said on Tuesday that fighters loyal to its movement attacked a police training college in Quetta in southwest Pakistan in a raid that officials said killed 59 people and wounded more than 100.

By Kylie MacLellan and Sarah Young LONDON (Reuters) - Britain on Tuesday backed a $22 billion (18 billion pounds) expansion of Heathrow Airport, ending 25 years of indecision and promising to boost global trade links following the vote to leave the European Union. Heathrow, Europe's busiest airport, defeated a proposal from smaller rival Gatwick and will secure the first new full-length runway to be built near London in 70 years after environmental and political protests scuppered previous attempts. Prime Minister Theresa May, a former critic of Heathrow expansion, said she had opted for a plan that would boost the economy, create jobs and provide access to global markets.
