Greek flag flutters in the wind above tourists visiting the archaeological site of the Acropolis hill in Athens, GreeceATHENS/BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Conflicting statements and denials flew between Athens and Brussels on Tuesday in a war of nerves highlighting the depth of mutual mistrust over a new round of negotiations on an 86 billion euro bailout that started this week. Any hope of a fresh start in fraught relations between Greece's leftist government, purged of its most radical members, and the institutions representing its creditors, appeared to be dashed by the flurry of assertions and rebuttals. Differences included the pace and conduct of bailout talks, whether or not Greece needs to enact further laws before a deal, the reopening of the Athens stock exchange, and the activities of former finance minister Yanis Varoufakis, who continues to heap abuse on the creditors in his blog.

By Mohammed Ghobari and Mohammed Mukhashef SANAA/ADEN (Reuters) - Warplanes attacked Houthi militia in control of Yemen's largest air base north of Aden on Tuesday, seeking to expand territorial gains made by Saudi-led coalition forces since they captured the southern port city last week. Witnesses said big explosions were heard at the al-Anad base, 50 km (30 miles) from Aden, which has been held by the Iranian-allied Houthi movement for much of a fourth-month-old civil war and commands the approaches to Aden. A Saudi-led Arab coalition allied with southern secessionist fighters retook much of Aden last week in the first significant ground victory in their campaign to end Houthi control over much of Yemen and restore exiled President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry testifies before a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on the Iran nuclear agreement in WashingtonBy Patricia Zengerle and Doina Chiacu WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Secretary of State John Kerry intensified efforts on Tuesday to beat back criticism of the Iran nuclear deal and convince U.S. lawmakers that rejecting it would give Tehran a fast track to a weapon and access to billions of dollars from collapsed sanctions. Days after tough questioning by lawmakers at an emotional Senate hearing, Kerry sharpened his response to criticism that the deal's provisions were temporary and would not prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon in the long run. "Iran has agreed to refrain from producing or acquiring highly enriched uranium and weapons-grade plutonium for nuclear weapons forever," he told the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee.

Bowe Bergdahl Charged With Desertion, Could Face LifeAmerican soldier and former Taliban captive Bowe Bergdahl has been charged with desertion over his disappearance from an Afghan outpost in 2009 and could face life in confinement, the Army announced today. As part of the deal, the Taliban five were relocated to Qatar.

Lawmakers to Question Top Officials about Controversial Visa Program for Wealthy ForeignersRepublicans in Congress voiced strong objections Tuesday in response to a scathing Homeland Security investigation that found a senior official appeared to give special treatment to politically-connected applicants when he ran a little-known federal program that offers visas to those who invest $500,000 in a job-creating business. U.S. Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, the committee chairman, said he viewed the findings of the Homeland Security Inspector General “extremely concerning” and said he will hold hearings Thursday to determine if further investigation is needed. The Inspector General’s investigation focused on the leadership of Alejandro Mayorkas, who served as director of the immigration program known as EB-5, an obscure but increasingly popular method for obtaining highly-sought-after American Green Cards. In late 2013, Mayorkas was promoted by President Obama to Deputy Secretary of the department over objections from Republicans who had already begun to hear rumblings of problems with his handling of the immigration program.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell speaks to the media before Super Bowl XLIX in PhoenixBy Steve Ginsburg WASHINGTON (Reuters) - NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday upheld the four-game suspension handed to quarterback Tom Brady for his role in a scheme to deflate the footballs in the conference championship game that put the New England Patriots in the 2015 Super Bowl. Goodell said he affirmed the suspension in the scandal known as "Deflategate," in part because of fresh revelations made during Brady's 10-hour appeal on June 23 at NFL headquarters in New York. The commissioner said the league discovered that the quarterback, a four-time Super Bowl champion, had destroyed his cellphone weeks earlier even though he knew investigators had requested access to text messages stored on the device.

Tom Brady #12 of the New England Patriots warms up prior to playing in Super Bowl XLIX at University of Phoenix Stadium on February 1, 2015 in Glendale, ArizonaTom Brady's four-match ban over the "Deflate-gate" scandal was upheld on Tuesday as it emerged the New England Patriots star had ordered the destruction of a cellphone containing potentially crucial evidence. In a bombshell ruling which followed speculation that Brady's ban would be slashed or even cancelled, National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell said the original punishment would stand. Brady, one of the most high-profile athletes in American sport, had been suspended in May after an inquiry found he was at least "generally aware" of a plot by Patriots staff to tamper with the air pressure of balls used during the AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts earlier this year.

Woods of the U.S. acknowledges the crowd as he walks off the 18th green during the second round of the British Open golf championship on the Old Course in St. Andrews, Scotland(Reuters) - Time is fast running out for Tiger Woods to salvage what he describes as a "frustrating" PGA Tour season after three missed cuts, a withdrawal and just one top-25 finish in eight starts. The former world number has plummeted to a mind-boggling 266th in the rankings, making him ineligible for next week's elite WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio where he has triumphed a record eight times. Woods attributes his woes to a "perfect storm" of trying to work through the latest swing change of his career while still recovering from back surgery, but he said on Tuesday things were "starting to come together".

U.S. President Barack Obama shakes hands with dignitaries at the end of his remarks at the African Union in Addis AbabaBy Katy Migiro NAIROBI (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - U.S. President Barack Obama, wrapping up a visit to the continent of his father's birth, toured an Ethiopian factory making baby food on Tuesday to show how investment in farming can cut hunger and stunting. Child stunting has fallen by up to one-third over the past few years in African countries targeted by the U.S. government's global hunger initiative, Feed the Future, a report released on Tuesday said. Obama has made food security a priority of his development agenda, saying in 2013 it was a "moral imperative" to end hunger on the world's poorest continent.

A piece of debris is seen near the crash site of Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo near CantilBy Irene Klotz CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (Reuters) - Federal investigators cited inadequate training of test pilots by a Northrup Grumman Corp subsidiary on Tuesday as a leading factor behind last year's fatal crash of an experimental Virgin Galactic passenger spaceship over the Mojave Desert. The premature unlocking of the hinged tail section on Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo triggered a midair breakup of the ship during its fourth powered test flight on Oct. 31, the National Transportation Safety Board said. Blame for the accident falls to Scaled Composites, the Northrop Grumman unit that developed the craft and employed its test crew, the NTSB said.

File photo of a boy looking inside the skull of a Tyrannosaurus Rex replica at the Egidio Feruglio Museum in Trelew, ArgentinaBy Will Dunham WASHINGTON (Reuters) - If you want to know the secret behind the success of Tyrannosaurus rex and its meat-eating dinosaur cousins, look no further than their teeth. Scientists on Tuesday unveiled a comprehensive analysis of the teeth of the group of carnivorous dinosaurs called theropods, detailing a unique serrated structure that let them chomp efficiently through the flesh and bones of large prey. Theropods included the largest land predators in Earth's history.

U.S. scientists have used high-tech detective work to identify the remains of four leaders of Jamestown, the New World's first successful English colony, more than 400 years after they died, the Smithsonian Institution said on Tuesday. The research also provided new insight into life and death and the importance of religion in the Jamestown settlement in Virginia, about 80 miles (130 km) south of Washington, the Smithsonian said. The men were identified as the Reverend Robert Hunt, Captain Gabriel Archer, Sir Ferdinando Wainman and Captain William West.

U.S. graduate students scrape soil into a dustpan as they try to uncover implements fashioned from quartz that were used 100,000 years ago to prepare animal hides, at Swartkrans cave, northwest of JohannesburgBy Ed Stoddard KROMDRAAI, South Africa (Reuters) - Crouched in a shallow square grid dug into the red African earth, American graduate student Sarah Edlund uses a hand brush to scrape soil into a dustpan. "We have found a lot of quartz and this is important because it is not natural to this area ... It must have been brought here," Edlund said as she topped up her bucket with soil before taking it to a sifting device, where the dirt is separated from the quartz and other potential scientific treasures. "In this area we have what are mostly called scrapers, a certain form of stone tool," said Travis Pickering, a professor of anthropology at the University of Wisconsin.

Pluto photo from four images from New Horizons' Long Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) combined with color data from the Ralph instrumentBy Irene Klotz CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (Reuters) - A stunning silhouette of Pluto taken by NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft after it shot past the icy orb last week show an extensive layer of atmospheric haze, while close-up pictures of the ground reveal flows of nitrogen ice, scientists said on Friday. New Horizons became the first spacecraft to visit Pluto and its entourage of moons and so far has returned about 5 percent of the pictures and science data collected in the days leading up to, during and immediately following the July 14 flyby. The latest batch of images includes a backlit view of Pluto with sun, located more than 3 billion miles away, shining around and through the planet’s atmosphere.

Oldest Panda in Captivity Celebrates 37th BirthdayA female panda in Hong Kong celebrated her 37th birthday today (July 28), becoming the oldest panda in captivity, and setting two new Guinness World Records in the process. The giant panda, named Jia Jia, now holds the title for "oldest panda ever in captivity" and "oldest panda living in captivity." The panda's advanced age is equivalent to 111 human years, according to officials at the Guinness World Records organization. Jia Jia lives with the world's second-oldest panda, An An, who is approaching his 29th birthday, at Ocean Park, an animal and amusement park in Hong Kong.

Smells Fishy: Putrid 'Corpse Flower' BloomsMore than 2,300 visitors queued up on Saturday (July 25) to meet Trudy, an enormous "corpse flower" that was in bloom. Corpse flowers (Amorphophallus titanum, which means "giant, misshapen penis") burst into enormous purple-and-yellow blooms only once every few years. "It's very difficult to describe the smell," Paul Licht, UC Botanical Garden director, said in a statement.

Identities of Mysterious Jamestown Settlers RevealedFour lost leaders of the first permanent English settlement in the Americas have been identified, thanks to chemical analysis of their skeletons, as well as historical documents. The settlement leaders were mostly high-status men who were buried at the 1608 Jamestown church in Virginia. "They're very much at the heart of the foundation of the America that we know today," said Douglas Owsley, a forensic anthropologist at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., who helped identify the bodies.

Deadly SpaceShipTwo Crash Caused by Co-Pilot Error: NTSBThe fatal breakup and crash of Virgin Galactic's first SpaceShipTwo space plane last year was caused by a co-pilot error, as well as the failure of the spacecraft's builders to anticipate such a catastrophic mistake, federal safety investigators say. SpaceShipTwo crashed in October when co-pilot Michael Alsbury unlocked the commercial space plane's re-entry "feathering" system too early during a test flight over California's Mojave Desert, investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board said in a hearing today (July 28). The aerospace company Scaled Composites, which built the spacecraft, also "set the stage" for the accident through its "failure to consider and protect against the possibility that a single human error could result in a catastrophic hazard to the SpaceShipTwo vehicle," NTSB Chairman Christopher Hart said as he read the board's findings.

Ancient Huts May Reveal Clues to Earth's Magnetic Pole ReversalsThe fiery demise of ancient huts in southern Africa 1,000 years ago left clues to understanding a bizarre weak spot in the Earth's magnetic field — and the role it plays in the magnetic poles' periodic reversals. Patches of ground where huts were burned down in southern Africa contain a key mineral that recorded the magnetic field at the time of each ritual burning. "It has long been thought reversals start at random locations, but our study suggests this may not be the case," John Tarduno, a geophysicist from the University of Rochester in New York and lead author of the paper, said in a statement.

One Tough Bite: T. Rex's Teeth Had Secret WeaponSecret structures hidden within the serrated teeth of Tyrannosaurus rex and other theropods helped the fearsome dinosaurs tear apart their prey without chipping their pearly whites, a new study finds. Researchers looked at the teeth of theropods — a group of bipedal, largely carnivorous dinosaurs that includes T. rex and Velociraptor — to study the mysterious structures that looked like cracks within each tooth. The investigation showed that these structures weren't cracks at all, but deep folds within the tooth that strengthened each individual serration and helped prevent breakage when the dinosaur pierced through its prey, said study lead researcher Kirstin Brink, a postdoctoral researcher of biology at the University of Toronto Mississauga.

A Florida man has been charged in an alleged backpack bomb plot he planned to carry out on a public beach in Key West to show his support for the Islamic State militant group, the Department of Justice said on Tuesday. Harlem Suarez, also known as Almlak Benitez, 23, of Key West, was arrested on Monday as part of an FBI sting operation and charged with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction, the department said. According to the criminal complaint, the FBI was alerted to Facebook posts made by Suarez in April of this year in which he expressed his support for Islamic State.

Israelis hold placards depicting Pollard during a protest calling for his release from a U.S. prison, outside U.S. Secretary of State Kerry's hotel in JerusalemJonathan Pollard, a former U.S. Navy intelligence analyst convicted of spying for Israel, will be released on parole on Nov. 21 after 30 years in prison, a federal parole board ruled on Tuesday. Pollard's planned release, which was quickly welcomed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, would remove a longstanding irritant in U.S.-Israel relations at a time of increased friction between the two close allies over President Barack Obama's landmark nuclear deal with Iran. Pollard, who has remained jailed for decades despite numerous efforts by Israel to secure his early release from a life sentence, will be required to remain in the United States for five years under the terms of his parole, his attorneys said.

Seif al-Islam has been sentenced to death in his absence by a Tripoli courtA Libyan court Tuesday sentenced a son and eight aides of slain dictator Moamer Kadhafi to death for crimes during the 2011 uprising, in a verdict denounced by rights campaigners. The United Nations also said it was "deeply disturbed" by the outcome and criticised the trial for failing to meet international standards. Seif al-Islam, the strongman's one-time heir apparent who is also wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC), was tried in his absence because he is held by militia opposed to the Tripoli authorities.
