Iran Nuclear: Iran says it is no longer considering a Russian proposal aimed at diffusing the standoff over Tehran's controversial nuclear program.
Moscow had proposed enriching Iran's uranium in Russia to allay international concerns Tehran could use the process to make atomic weapons.
But at a news conference today (Sunday), Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza said the plan will no longer be considered now that the nuclear case is being handled by the U.N. Security Council.
The International Atomic Energy Agency sent its report on Iran's nuclear activities to the Security Council Wednesday, saying it could not determine if Tehran was enriching uranium for military purposes.
Iraq: Iraqi officials say at least 11 people were killed in a series of attacks in Baghdad today (Sunday), hours before the trial of deposed leader Saddam Hussein resumed.
Authorities say a roadside bomb that targeted a police patrol killed six people today (Sunday) on a busy street in the Iraqi capital.
In other attacks, insurgents fired on a car, killing its three occupants. And a mortar shell struck a building in an eastern district, killing two people.
More than 20 people, including several Iraqi soldiers, were wounded in the various attacks.
The violence came hours before the trial of Saddam and seven others resumed in Baghdad.
Afghan Attack: A senior Afghan politician targeted in a suicide bombing today (Sunday) in Kabul is accusing Pakistan's secret service agency of planning the attack.

Mojadidi told reporters that Afghanistan has information that six foreigners entered the country to kill him. He did not offer any proof. Pakistan has rejected the accusation.
