Bus bomb

BEIRUT - A bomb blast killed eight people and injured 16 others on a bus in Syria's Homs on Tuesday, state media said, citing the city's health authority. Many of the passengers were university students, Homs Governor Talal Barazi told state-run Ikhbariya TV.

Egypt arrest

CAIRO - Former Egyptian interior minister Habib al-Adly has been arrested after failing to attend his sentencing in a trial over corruption charges, two security sources said on Tuesday. Mr Adly, who served under ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, was due to attend the final hearing in April and hand himself over to authorities, but did not show up and had been missing since then.

IS target

MOSCOW - Six Russian long-range bombers struck Islamic State targets in Syria's Deir al-Zor province, Russian news agencies quoted Russia's Defence Ministry as saying on Tuesday. The TU-22M3 bombers took off from a base in Russia, flew to Syria and bombed IS targets as well as weapons and ammunitions depots, they said.

320 detained

RIYADH - Saudi Arabia's public prosecutor said on Tuesday most of the people detained in a sweeping anti-corruption campaign launched last month have agreed to settlements to avoid prosecution while the rest could be held for months. In a statement, the public prosecutor said a total of 320 people had been subpoenaed.

10 in court

ISTANBUL - A Turkish court on Tuesday adjourned for four months the trial of 10 academics who signed a letter to the Turkish government last year calling for violence against Turkey's Kurds to end.
