2 suicide attacks in Yemen kill nearly 70 people

Yemen bombingTwo suicide bombers struck in Yemen on Thursday — one targeting a gathering of Shiite rebels in the country's capital and the other hitting a military outpost in the south — in attacks that killed nearly 70 people, officials said.

Hong Kong activists, government agree to talks

Hong Kong protestsHong Kong protest leaders have agreed to hold talks with the pro-Beijing government as their numbers dwindled and they faced growing pressure to end their sit-in.

On Tuesday morning, only a hundred or so protesters remained in the
central business district, significantly down from the tens of thousands that massed over the weekend.

Hong Kong's embattled leader Leung Chun-ying insisted late last week that government offices reopen on Monday so some 3,000 civil servants could return to work or, he warned, the government would "take all necessary actions to restore social order."
