Now that we have our sailors back from Iran's regime, it seems like we can expect economic sanctions on Tehran's nuclear program to be lifted soon, provided Iran continues to fulfill its obligations under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

Riyadh (AFP) - Saudi Arabia accused Iran of sponsoring terror and undermining regional stability, as a diplomatic spat between both countries escalated Saturday over the kingdom's execution of a prominent Shiite cleric.

"The Iranian regime is the last regime in the world that could accuse others of supporting terrorism, considering that (Iran) is a state that sponsors terror, and is condemned by the United Nations and many countries," said a foreign ministry spokesman in a statement carried by the official SPA news agency.

London, 27 Aug - The main suspect in the 1996 bombing of the Khobar Towers residence at a U.S. military base in Saudi Arabia has been captured after more than 19 years on the run, a Saudi-owned newspaper reported on Wednesday.
