Flooding in Chilean desert region kills six

Flash floods in a normally bone-dry region of northern Chile killed six people and left 19 missing, officials said, prompting the government to declare a state of emergency and send in the army. The downpour began late Tuesday in the Atacama region, home to the world's most arid desert, and lashed the area for hours, turning riverbeds that had been dry for years into torrents. The interior ministry declared a state of emergency late Wednesday and invoked a constitutional clause transferring power from the regional government to the military. The weather forced state copper company Codelco, the world's largest copper producer, to temporarily halt operations in Atacama and the neighboring region of Antofagasta.

England's Richard III finally gets burial fit for a king

England's slain king Richard III, exhumed from an undignified grave beneath a car park, will finally be buried with honour on Thursday in an unprecedented ceremony filled with pageantry and poignancy. Some 530 years on from his brutal demise, the last English monarch killed in battle will be laid to rest in Leicester Cathedral, across the street from where his remains were located in 2012 in a feat of archaeology. The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the spiritual head of the Church of England, will preside over the reinternment, while Queen Elizabeth has sent a personal message that will appear inside the order of service. Her daughter-in-law Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, will attend on the sovereign's behalf, as will the queen's cousin Prince Richard the Duke of Gloucester, patron of the Richard III Society and a blood relative of the slain king.

Exclusive: U.S. bets on Brazil, extends new invitation to Rousseff

By Brian Winter SAO PAULO (Reuters) - The Obama administration has again invited Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff for a state visit to Washington, a diplomatic breakthrough that both sides hope will lead over time to greater trade between the two biggest economies in the Americas. Rousseff had originally been scheduled to make a state visit, which involves a black-tie dinner at the White House and is considered the strongest expression of friendly ties between allies, in October 2013. The dust-up led one former top aide to President Barack Obama to describe Brazil and the United States as "two countries that just fundamentally don't understand each other." Yet, after more than a year of efforts by both sides to heal relations, Vice President Joe Biden re-extended the invitation to Rousseff in a phone call on March 13, sources with knowledge of the conversation told Reuters on condition of anonymity. Biden offered Rousseff a choice between a state visit in 2016 or a high-profile but less formal trip this year, the sources said, since this year's calendar of state visits is already considered full with leaders from Japan and China.

Libyan pro-government warplanes launch strikes near Tripoli

Military spokesman Colonel Ahmed al-Mesmari said "the air strike targeted a weapons storage facility belonging to Libya Dawn" in Tarhuna, some 80 kilometres (50 miles) southeast of Tripoli. Libya Dawn is a militia alliance that includes Islamists and has installed a rival government and legislature in opposition to the country's internationally recognised government. Sadly this is their strategy, to kill civilians and claim to the international community that they are after weapons," he said, referring to the Western-backed government. Mesmari said that, after the air raid, members of Libya Dawn attacked the house of a military officer and "killed his wife, his daughter, his son, his brother and other people who were there" in retaliation.

Indonesia's president says China has no legal claim to South China Sea - newspaper

Indonesian President Joko Widodo says China's claims to the majority of the South China Sea have "no legal foundation in international law," Japan's Yomiuri newspaper reported. The comments, in an interview published on Sunday ahead of visits to Japan and China this week, were the first time Widodo, who took office in October, has taken a position on the South China Sea dispute. Indonesia, the largest country in Southeast Asia, has been a self-appointed broker in the myriad territorial disputes between its neighbours and China over the South China Sea. "So we support the Code of Conduct (of the South China Sea) and also dialogue between China and Japan, China and ASEAN." Widodo also confirmed that he and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, whom he meets later on Monday, would sign a defence cooperation agreement that would cover "how to work with" Japan's military, and "search and rescue operations, humanitarian assistance, and cyber defence", the Yomiuri reported.[ID:nL3N0WL3Y2] Japan has already bolstered partnerships with the Philippines and Vietnam, the two countries most at odds with China over territorial rows in the South China Sea.

World powers hail resumption of Libya political dialogue

European powers and the United States welcomed renewed dialogue between Libya's rival political factions, amid UN-mediated talks aimed at reaching an agreement to form a unity government in the strife-torn country. In a joint statement, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Britain and the United States urged the participants in the talks to "enter into the discussions constructively and in good faith in order to reach agreement on a national unity government and arrangements for a ceasefire as quickly as possible." "We call on the Libyan political leaderships to act responsibly and to make clear their support for the dialogue and call on them to exercise authority over military and militia leaders and ensure civilian oversight and control of their actions and disavow military actions not taken in that framework," they added. "We are deeply concerned about the growing threat from terrorist groups in Libya, including Da'esh, who have expanded their presence in Libya as a result of the absence of a strong, united, central government in the country," the world powers said, using an Arabic acronym for the IS group.

Pope heads into mafia territory in crime-ridden Naples

Pope Francis heads deep into mafia territory Saturday with a one-day trip to Naples to visit jailbirds and the poor, amid heightened security against a possible attack by Islamist militants. Up to 800,000 people are expected to gather in the southern Italian city to welcome the Argentine pontiff, who declared war on organised crime last year by "excommunicating" all mafiosi from the Catholic Church. Francis will begin the day at the ancient Roman city of Pompeii, before taking a helicopter to the violent, poverty and crime-ridden Scampia neighbourhood in Naples, where he will meet with local residents. He will then hold mass in the Piazza del Plebiscito in the historic centre, a stone's throw from the Gulf of Naples, before visiting the city's overcrowded Poggio Reale jail, where 2,500 prisoners are squeezed into a space for 1,400.
