By Alissa de Carbonnel TEHRAN (Reuters) - Europe's energy chief will seek to reassure Iran's top ministers on Saturday that the European Union wants to keep trade open despite the U.S. withdrawal from the nuclear deal.

The Queen arrives at the Royal wedding
The Queen's arrival at St George's Chapel for her grandson's wedding marked a key moment in the day's proceedings: that the entire guestlist were now present at the venue. Tradition dictates that Her Majesty is the last to arrive at Royal engagements, visits and events - and the protocol even extends to her family's weddings.  She will watch Meghan Markle walk down the aisle to royalty and an awaiting Prince Harry. And guests will have to be on their guard for another tradition which means when the The Queen stops eating, others must do the same.  The protocol usually relates to banquets, and with 200 guests set to sit down for an evening meal as part of the celebration, it is understood the custom will have to be adhered to.  Royal wedding day pictures: Best photos from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's ceremony and reception But those worried about scoffing down their food as soon as it lands on their table might not need to worry given that the Queen has been known to push a morsel of food around on her plate to allow people to finish. Last week, the official document signed by The Queen granting permission for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to marry was released, incorporating the symbols of America onto traditional vellum to represent the bride. The ornate Instrument of Consent, the official document confirming the approval of the Queen, features emblems for Ms Markle including a rose, the national flower of the United States, two golden poppies from her home state of California, and olive bran

Saudi Arabia arrests seven for suspected links with foreign entities
Saudi authorities have arrested seven people for suspicious contacts with foreign entities and offering financial support to enemies overseas, state news agency SPA said on Saturday. Citing a state security spokesman, an SPA statement said the suspects arrested "had suspicious contacts with foreign entities to support their activities, recruited people working in sensitive government sites and offered financial support of hostile elements overseas." They aimed at undermining the security and stability of the Kingdom and dividing national unity, the statement said, adding that work was still underway to identify everyone involved in their activities and take all legal measures against them. Saudi Arabia has arrested at least five people, mostly women who previously agitated for the right to drive and an end to the kingdom's male guardianship system, rights activists said on Friday.

Two North Koreans defect in latest upset for diplomatic thaw on Korean peninsula
Two North Koreans, including a military officer, defected to the South early on Saturday morning in the latest upset for Pyongyang after a fractious week in which Kim Jong-un threatened to pull out of June talks with Donald Trump, the US president.  The officer and a civilian defected by boat and were picked up by the South Korean military in the Yellow Sea, near the inter-Korean sea border, after expressing willingness to defect, reported the South's newswire, Yonhap.  The defection, the first of a North Korean military officer since 2008, is awkward timing for Seoul, which has a longstanding policy of accepting any North Korean defectors who want to live in the South. Moon Jae-in, South Korea's president, has been at pains to keep this year's diplomatic détente between North and South on track, particularly in the run up to June 12 summit in Singapore between Kim and President Trump, which aims to make progress on denuclearisation and peace on the peninsula.  But despite a friendly first meeting between Kim and Mr Moon at the end of April, during which they held hands as they crossed their shared border, the diplomatic thaw that began in January showed the first signs of a breakdown last week, and the latest defection could raise tensions further.  Thae Yong-ho, the highest ranking North Korean official ever to defect Credit: AFP/AFP In a stinging rebuke on Thursday, North Korea's chief negotiator, Ri Son Gwon, called the South Korean government "ignorant and inc

Cougar kills mountain biker and wounds another in Washington state
Two friends on a morning mountain bike ride 30 miles (48 kilometres) east of Seattle were attacked by a cougar, killing one of the men and leaving the second hospitalised. The cougar was later found up a tree near the dead man's body, where agents for the state's Fish and Wildlife police shot and killed it hours after the Saturday attack, the Seattle Times reported. The names of neither man were immediately released. The 31-year-old survivor said he and his friend were mountain biking in the Lake Hancock forest area at about 11am when they realised they were being chased by the big cat. "So they stopped and they made a lot of noise, said Capt. Alan Myers of the state department of Fish and Wildlife, ''which is exactly what we counsel people to do.

Islamic State fighters 'evacuate Damascus enclave' as Bashar Assad moves to reclaim western Syria
A war monitor said buses evacuated Islamic State fighters from an enclave south of Damascus on Sunday in a withdrawal deal, though state media denied the report and said the Syrian army was fighting to finish off the insurgents. The recovery of the enclave south of Damascus will mark another milestone in President Bashar al-Assad's war effort, crushing the last besieged rebel enclave in western Syria. Swathes of territory at the borders with Iraq, Turkey and Jordan, however, remain outside state control. Syrian government forces and their allies have been battling to recover the enclave south of Damascus since defeating rebels in eastern Ghouta, also near the capital, in April. The area is centred around the al-Hajar al-Aswad district and the adjoining Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk. In a live broadcast, a reporter with Syrian state TV said the Syrian army operations in the Hajar al-Aswad area were nearing their end and insurgent lines were collapsing as columns of smoke rose from the area behind him.

An ageing airliner carrying 110 people crashed shortly after take off from Havana airport in Cuba on Friday, leaving just three survivors in the country's worst aviation disaster in three decades. The 39-year-old Boeing 737 had taken off on an internal flight when it went down into a cassava field not far from the end of the runway just after midday,  bursting into flames and leaving huge plumes of black smoke. A local resident told Granma, the Cuban state newspaper, that the plane crashed after it attempted to return to the airport - making a turn and clipping electricity cables, then plummeting to the ground. Miguel Diaz-Canel, the Cuban president, visited the scene immediately and said: "There is a high number of people who appear to have died.

Duke and Duchess of Sussex - Harry and Meghan's new Royal titles explained
When Meghan Markle marries her fiancee Prince Harry on Saturday 19 May at St George's Chapel, Windsor, like all brides she will be joining a new family. But this is not any family. Just like her sister-in-law-to-be Kate Middleton, the former American actress will be making the transition from "commoner" to "royal" complete with a new title. Here's everything you need to know about the British peerage and their new titles - the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as confirmed this morning. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex Ms Markle becomes the first Duchess of Sussex as she marries Prince Harry.  By tradition, male members of the Royal family receive a title from the monarch on their wedding day, and the vacant title Duke of Sussex is regarded as the most likely choice for the Prince. The only previous Duke of Sussex was married twice, but neither of his marriages was approved by his father, George III, meaning they were considered unlawful.

Erdogan holds controversial election rally in Bosnia
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday addressed thousands of expatriate Turks in Sarajevo at his only election rally outside Turkey after other European countries banned such events. The Bosnian capital was chosen for the event -- ahead of Ankara's presidential and parliamentary elections next month -- after European Union states such as Germany, Austria and the Netherlands barred Turkish politicians from electioneering in their countries, stoking tensions between Ankara and Brussels. Turkey is scheduled to go the polls on June 24, with three million expatriate Turks allowed to vote, including 1.4 million in Germany.

Cleric Moqtada al-Sadr's bloc wins Iraq election
By Raya Jalabi and Michael Georgy BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A political bloc led by populist Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, a long-time adversary of the United States who also opposes Iranian influence in Iraq, has won the country's parliamentary election, the electoral commission said on Saturday. Sadr himself cannot become prime minister because he did not run in the election, though his bloc's victory puts him in a position to have a strong say in negotiations. The Victory Alliance, headed by incumbent Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, trailed in third place with 42 seats, behind the Al-Fatih bloc, which won 47 seats.

Trump nominates Pacific commander Harris as U.S. ambassador to Seoul
U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday nominated Admiral Harry Harris, head of the U.S. Pacific Command, as U.S. ambassador to South Korea ahead of a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un scheduled next month but since called into question by Pyongyang. If confirmed by the Senate, Harris would fill a post that has been vacant since Trump took office in January 2017. Harris was initially nominated by Trump to be U.S. ambassador to Australia but was asked last month by Mike Pompeo, now secretary of state, to take the post in Seoul instead, as diplomatic efforts to resolve the crisis over North Korea's nuclear weapons intensified.

The Hollywood kiss: Meghan Markle asks Prince Harry if they should embrace - and groom answers 'yeah'
Prince Harry and his American bride shared a "Hollywood kiss" on the stone steps of St George's Chapel, just moments after exchanging vows. The newlyweds emerged into the sunshine, and shared an embrace to the delight of the waiting crowd. Meghan Markle asked her new husband: "Do we kiss?" to which he replied with a discreet "Yeah", according to lip reader Tina Lannin. Judi James, a body language expert, said: "The timing of the kiss was perfect and it looked like Meghan's idea to do it on the steps, as she was the one who murmured to him. "It almost seemed like her theatrical experience may have influenced the decision to do it early, as the more time you wait the more tension and pressure builds up. Whereas she signalled to do it early to keep things calm." The kiss outside St George's Chapel Credit: Danny Lawson/PA She added: "It was a really smart move from her. It showed the poise she had carried throughout the ceremony and that she was able to lead the day. "It was a very Hollywood kiss. They just slightly leaned their heads to a right angle and Harry went for the lower lip which is popular on screen technique as it minimises the amount of damage done to the make-up. It was a very clever way to ensure there were no problems and that it all went smoothly.&

Cleric Sadr meets Iraq PM Abadi, hinting at coalition
By Raya Jalabi BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi met with Moqtada al-Sadr on Saturday, less than 24 hours after the Shi'ite cleric's bloc was declared winner of Iraq's parliamentary election, the clearest sign yet they could work together to form a coalition. "During our meeting, we agreed to work together and with other parties to expedite the process of forming a new Iraqi government," Abadi said at a joint press conference. "It will be a strong government, capable of providing to its citizens services, security and economic prosperity." Sadr, a long-time adversary of the United States who also opposes Iranian influence in Iraq, cannot become prime minister because he did not run in the election.

Cleric Sadr wins Iraq poll but forming government far off
Final results from Iraq's election confirmed Saturday that an alliance spearheaded by populist cleric Moqtada Sadr has triumphed, but the fiery preacher faces a huge task to form a governing coalition. Sadr's Marching Towards Reform bloc won 54 of the 329 seats in parliament in a major upset at a May 12 vote that saw a record level of abstentions as Iraqis turned their back on a widely reviled elite. The nationalist -- whose Shiite militia battled US troops after the 2003 invasion -- faces a deeply fragmented political landscape and opposition from key player Iran after he called for foreign influence in Iraq to be cut.
