Egypt’s government has unexpectedly resigned, the prime minister announced Monday. There was no reason behind the decision. The country has been continuing down its political roadmap with the presidential election on its way.
Thai prime minister Yingluck stands firm as she states she won’t resign with protest calls for her to do so, all the while she flees the Bangkok capital due to growing unrest violence. Over the weekend, an explosion killed 2 and injured more than 20 near an anti-government rally in Bangkok. Gunfire has also been reported as occurring.
Planned meetings between the Venezuelan government and opposition leaders Monday may help ease protests. At least eight have died in weeks of protest violence across the nation.
As per documents seen by Reuters, the Iraq government is to purchase $195 million dollars worth of arms from Iran. This would break the arms embargo the United Nations has on Iran.
