Trump administration may expand drone strikes, curb aids to crack down on Pak-based militants

Some US officials, however, are skeptical of the prospects for success, arguing that years of previous US efforts to curb Pakistan`s support for militant groups have failed, and that already strengthening US ties to India, Pakistan`s arch-enemy, undermine chances of a breakthrough...

British PM Theresa May tries to quell public anger after deadly London fire
London, June 17(Agencies): British Prime Minister Theresa May`s government sought on Saturday to quell anger over a deadly tower block fire by pledging to support the victims of the blaze after protesters jeered her when she visited local residents.
