Yemeni rebels clash with Saudi troops

President calls for Arab Marshall Plan to help rebuild his nation


The Israeli settlement of Har Homa (foreground), built in East Jerusalem, is seen in front of the West Bank city of Bethlehem (background) on September 1, 2014. Israel said it would expropriate 400 hectares (988 acres) of Palestinian land around Bethlehem, and allowed 45 days for any appeal. The Israeli army said the move stemmed from political decisions taken after the June killing of three Israeli teenagers snatched from a roadside in the same area, known to Israelis as the Gush Etzion settlement bloc.
