Ambulances arrive to transport people injured in a suicide bombing in the centre of RamadiBy Stephanie Nebehay GENEVA (Reuters) - Both Islamist fighters and Iraqi government forces have killed civilians and committed atrocities in three months of fighting, senior U.N. officials said in an emergency debate on the conflict on Monday. There was "strong evidence" that fighters from Islamic State and linked groups had carried out targeted killings, forced conversions, abductions, sexual abuse and torture, U.N. Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights Flavia Pansieri told the session. Iraqi police have executed detainees while Iraqi soldiers have shelled towns and carried out air strikes killing and injuring many civilians, Pansieri said, opening the meeting of the U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva. Pansieri voiced deep concern at persecution of Christians, Yazidis, Shia, Turkmen and other ethnic groups by Islamic State forces that have swept through western and northern Iraq since June, driving 1.2 million Iraqis from their homes.

Both parents were arrested and the boy, Ashya King, was taken to a hospital, a Spanish police spokesman said.

By Gwladys Fouche and Joachim Dagenborg OSLO (Reuters) - Normal operations are resuming at a major gas plant in Algeria, 18 months after a raid by Islamist militants killed forty employees, with full output expected in a few months, one of the plant's operators said on Monday. Norway's Statoil had kept its permanent workers away from the In Amenas plant, which it operates jointly with BP and Algeria's Sonatrach, after gunmen raided the site deep in the Sahara desert in January 2013. "The corporate executive committee has decided that ordinary rotation (of staff) is to be resumed at the plant as all defined security measures have been implemented," Statoil said in a statement. Security at the plant, which produced about 11.5 percent of Algeria's natural gas output before the attack, has been heightened, Statoil told Reuters.
