RT News - January 02, 2017 (17:00 MSK)

An Islamic-State car bomb in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad kills 39 people and injures 60 more, on the day French President Francois Hollande visits the country to review the war on terror. ISIL also claims responsibility for the massacre at the Istanbul night club that left 39 people dead, and dozens more wounded, on New Year's eve. Anti-"fake news" crusader The Washington Post is accused of generating fake news itself - after retracting a false story about Russia hacking America's power grid.

Dear readers and commenters,

We have implemented a new engine for our comment section. We hope the transition goes smoothly for all of you. Unfortunately, the comments made before the change have been lost due to a technical problem. We are working on restoring them, and hoping to see you fill up the comment section with new ones. You should still be able to log in to comment using your social-media profiles, but if you signed up under an RT profile before, you are invited to create a new profile with the new commenting system.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and looking forward to your future comments,

RT Team.
