COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (AP) — Sri Lanka's disputed prime minister resigned on Saturday, saying he wanted to end a long political impasse over his appointment and allow the president to form a new government. Mahinda Rajapaksa signed a letter of resignation, flanked by lawmakers from his party and blessed by Buddhist and other religious leaders in the presence of media. It was not immediately clear if the letter had been handed over to President Maithripala Sirisena. "Since I have no intention of remaining as Prime Minister without a general election being held, and in order to not hamper the President in any way, I will resign from the position of Prime Minister and make way for the President to form a new government," Rajapaksa said in a statement.

Qatar says Gulf Arab bloc needs reform to give it teeth

Qatar said on Saturday it remained committed to the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) but the bloc needed to enforce its own rules better, signalling a reformed alliance could help end a row between Doha and some of its neighbours. Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani said Qatar was still counting on Kuwait and other regional powers to help solve the row that has seen Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and non-GCC member Egypt impose a political and economic boycott on Doha since June 2017.

The Latest: Paris police: 21 people detained before protests

Paris police say 21 people have been detained in the French capital before protests by the "yellow vests" movement. Thousands of police and other members of the security forces have been deployed in Paris for the fifth straight weekend of demonstrations and the government has called for calm after previous protests turned violent. The "yellow vest" movement, which takes its name from the fluorescent safety vests French motorists must all have in their vehicles, emerged in mid-November as a protest against fuel tax increases.

Australia recognises West Jerusalem as Israel's capital

Australia has recognised West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, it has been confirmed. The decision, announced by prime minister Scott Morrison, follows a similar move by the US last year when President Donald Trump reversed decades of American foreign policy and switched the country’s embassy there from Tel Aviv. Mr Morrison said Australia would not move its own embassy until a peace settlement between Israel and the Palestinians was achieved.

Hunt says version of PM May's deal can get through parliament

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said on Saturday that the British parliament could back Prime Minister Theresa May's deal if lawmakers received assurances from the European Union, but warned that a no deal Brexit was still on the table. "When the dust has settled, the only way we're going to get this through the House of Commons ... is to have a version of the deal that the government has negotiated," Hunt told BBC radio. Following a summit in Brussels on Friday, May said it was possible that the EU could give further guarantees that the backstop would be temporary although the bloc's other 27 leaders told her they would not renegotiate the treaty.

At least seven civilians were killed and nearly two dozens injured when government forces fired at anti-India protesters in disputed Kashmir following a gunbattle that left three rebels and a soldier dead on Saturday, police and residents said. Indian troops surrounded a village in the southern Pulwama area on a tip that militants were hiding there, police said. As the soldiers began a search operation, militants jumped out of a civilian home and took position in a vast apple orchard while firing at soldiers and counterinsurgency police, said Muneer Ahmed Khan, a top police officer.

Wisconsin, Michigan Republicans enact lame-duck limits

Republicans in Wisconsin and Michigan enacted last-minute limits on Democratic power Friday, with outgoing GOP governors in both Upper Midwest states signing measures protecting their priorities before leaving office in less than a month. Democrats derided the moves as desperate power grabs, while Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder downplayed the scope of their actions while defending their rights to do it.

Yellow Vests march down heavily guarded Champs-Elysées

Thousands of France's "yellow vest" demonstrators took to the streets again on Saturday, a month after the start of their protest movement which has plunged President Emmanuel Macron's government into its biggest crisis. The number of protesters who turn out could determine the fate of the movement, five days after Macron announced a series of tax and wage concessions in a bid to end the unrest. The last three Saturdays have been marked by violent demonstrations, with barricades being set on fire on the Champs-Elysees.

It's the year that celebrities were held to account. Are we outraged too easily?

Kevin Hart, left, and Will Ferrell in Get Hard. If 2016 was the year of the celebrity death, and 2017 the year of the celebrity sex scandal, then 2018 has been the year celebrities have been held to account for things they said in the past that no longer wash in these suddenly, if somewhat belatedly, enlightened times. Many high-profile comedians have come under this kind of fire, from Sarah Silverman to Amy Schumer to Ricky Gervais, and last week it was the turn of Kevin Hart.

Turkey will keep attacking PKK in Iraq, foreign ministry says

Turkey will keep striking Kurdish PKK fighters in northern Iraq, the foreign ministry said on Saturday, a day after Baghdad formally complained that repeated Turkish air strikes violated its sovereignty and endangered civilians. The Turkish military said on Friday it killed eight Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militants, prompting Iraqi authorities to summon the Turkish ambassador in Baghdad. Turkey regularly hits PKK bases across its southern border, saying the militants use the remote and mountainous northern Iraqi region as a base for deadly attacks inside Turkey, where the outlawed group has waged an insurgency since the 1980s.

US federal judge rules Obamacare unconstitutional

A federal judge in Texas ruled late Friday that the US health care law known as Obamacare is unconstitutional -- a ruling that opposition Democrats vowed to appeal. US District Judge Reed O'Connor's 55-page ruling came in a lawsuit filed by several Republican state attorneys general opposed to the federal government health plan, known officially as the Affordable Care Act. Conservative Republicans have long opposed the plan, signed into law by president Barack Obama in 2010.

Jurgen Klopp out to end Man Utd hoodoo as Liverpool look to prove gulf in class

It would be fair to say that the 201st meeting of Liverpool and Manchester United represents a clash between two teams heading in completely different directions. A look to the Premier League table ahead of Sunday’s game shows a 16-point gap separating the sides after as many fixtures, with no statistical expertise required to extrapolate that over a 38-game season. Consequently, Jurgen Klopp’s team find themselves in the midst of a rare league title bid, while their rivals are already facing an uphill battle to secure Champions League qualification.

Transport for London said that Tube is an "extremely safe" environment and that trains and stations were professionally cleaned throughout the day and night. The findings highlighted the difference in infection rates for commuters from boroughs better or worse served by Tube lines. For instance, infection rates in residents of Islington, who often change lines at crowded King's Cross St. Pancras, were nearly three times higher than in commuters from Kensington, who mostly take direct trains.
