Yemen rebel attack sparks fire in Saudi gas plant: Aramco
An attack claimed by Yemeni rebels sparked a fire in a Saudi gas plant Saturday but caused no casualties or disruption to production, state-owned energy company Saudi Aramco said. "Saudi Aramco's response team controlled a limited fire this morning at the Shaybah natural gas liquefaction facility," the energy giant said. The Huthi rebels have carried out a spate of cross-border missile and drone attacks targeting Saudi air bases and other facilities in recent months in what it says is retaliation for the Saudi-led air war in Yemen.

Photograph: Mark Graves/APAs Portland prepared for what may be one of the biggest political demonstrations of the US summer, longtime rightwing leader Joey Gibson turned himself in to city authorities.Outside the Multnomah County Justice Center, Gibson told reporters, and his supporters via Facebook, the arrest warrant against him was "without a doubt an assault on the first amendment"."I have never been violent," he said.The 35-year-old is one of six men associated with rightwing rallies in the Oregon city to be arrested or charged since 7 August, relating to a violent incident on 1 May at Cider Riot, a bar favored by the left.Video shows men who have attended Gibson's Patriot Prayer rallies in the city, and who arrived at the bar in his company, exchanging pepper spray with bar patrons, striking people with batons and fighting.Gibson claimed the charges against him were "completely political. This is [Portland mayor] Ted Wheeler doing everything he can because he's been caught." He accused Wheeler of "coordinating with" and "protecting" anti-fascist demonstrators or "antifa", a refrain in his speeches since 2017.Gibson's attorney, Multnomah county Republican chair James Buchal, said in a statement the charges were "part and parcel of the dishonest campaign by Portland leaders to blame out-of-

Moscow was set for fresh protests Saturday, the latest in a wave of demonstrations that has seen tens of thousands take to the streets after opposition figures were banned from local elections a month ago. The rallies, which have taken place every Saturday since the ruling, are the biggest since mass protests broke out in 2011 against President Vladimir Putin's return to the Kremlin after a term as prime minister.

US lawmaker Tlaib scraps West Bank trip over Israeli demands
Palestinian-American lawmaker Rashida Tlaib on Friday turned down Israel's offer to let her visit her grandmother in the occupied West Bank, owing to restrictions she termed oppressive. It was the latest twist in a saga hinging on Israel's war against those who would boycott it over its treatment of the Palestinians. On Thursday, Israel barred from entry the US Congress' first Muslim female lawmakers, Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, on the grounds that they support the boycott movement, and after President Donald Trump urged the Jewish state to block the two Democrats.

UN expert: Executions in Iran among the world's highest
The U.N. expert on human rights in Iran says last year saw increasing restrictions on the right to freedom of expression and continuing violations of the right to life, liberty and a fair trial in the Islamic Republic, including 253 reported executions of adults and children. The significant decline, he said, is attributed to enforcement of a 2017 amendment to Iran's anti-narcotics law that saw the number of executions for drug-related offenses drop from 231 in 2017 to at least 24 in 2018.

Sinclair's Eric Bolling Lands First TV Interview With New White House Press Secretary (Video)
Well over a month into her new gig, Stephanie Grisham did her first television interview as White House press secretary this week, bypassing Fox News for rival right-leaning network Sinclair and its "America This Week" host (and former Fox News staffer) Eric Bolling.In the interview, broadcast Wednesday night, Grisham sidestepped a question about plans to bring back daily press briefings. "The president is his best spokesperson," she said. "He is the most accessible president in modern history, so I don't know what any of the press could complain about."Also Read: Stephanie Grisham to Replace Sarah Sanders as White House Press SecretaryHer interview followed an appearance by Anthony Scaramucci, the former White House communications director who has turned on President Trump in the last few days and says he no longer supports his re-election bid.
