Gulf tensions escalate - with the US sending troops to Saudi Arabia, and imposing new sanctions on Iran over Tehran's alleged attack on an oil facility. More chaos in Hong Kong - where anti-Beijing protesters clash with police, who respond with rubber bullets and tear gas. Deadlock in Israel - after a second election fails to give any side a majority to form a government with both prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his main rival vying to lead any coalition. Thousands of children as young as five have been held without charge in cramped detention centers in Nigeria. Human Rights Watch says the arrests were made as part of an anti-terror crackdown.


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.
