UK special forces in Iraq have reportedly been handed a list of 200 British members of terror groups, most notably Daesh, to kill before they attempt to return to Britain. The British daily The Sunday Times says the commando unit known as SAS has been told to “use whatever means possible” to kill or capture the militants who are seen as a threat to the UK security as they might return any time to the country. “A kill list has been drawn up containing the names of hundreds of very bad people. A lot of them are from the UK. The hunt is now on for those who have effectively gone off-the-grid," the newspaper quoted a senior British military source as saying.

Ortega put an end to years of US-backed insurgency in his country back in the early 1980s.

The pro-EU Bulgarian diplomat believes that Moscow is trying to weaken Europe and divide it. Is this going to be the new norm between Russia and the European bloc for the new future?
