Donald Trump should help kick 'Russia's ass': Republican Senator Lindsey
Bavaria, Feb 19 (Agencies): US President Donald Trump should come clean and back moves to "kick Russia`s ass" for its alleged meddling in last year`s US election, senior Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said on Sunday. Trump has been embroiled in questions over his ties with Russia and this week his national security advisor Michael Flynn was forced to resign over contacts with Moscow`s ambassador in Washington. The president has repeatedly said he wants to improve relations with Russia but Graham said Trump should be much more focused on hitting back at Russia over its alleged hacking of the Democratic Party`s network to discredit candidate Hillary Clinton in his favour. "My goal is to put it on Trump`s desk and I hope he`ll embrace the idea that as the leader of the free world he sh...

350,000 children trapped in west Mosul
London, Feb 19 (Agencies): Around 350,000 children are trapped in western Mosul, Save the Children warned today as Iraqi forces launched a fresh offensive on jihadists defending the strategic city.

He warned that escape is not an option for most families, who risk summary execution by fighters from the Islamic State group, sniper fire and landmines, but they are also running out of food, water and medicine.

Obama ranks 12th best leader in US presidential history
Washington, Feb 18 (Agencies): Barack Obama ranks as the 12th best leader in US presidential history, according to a new survey. The survey of 91 presidential historians conducted by C-SPAN placed the 44th president just below Woodrow Wilson (1913-1921) and just above James Monroe (1817-1825), NBC News reported on Friday.

Obama scored particularly high on the "equal justice" scale, coming in third behind only Abraham Lincoln (1861-1865) and Lyndon Johnson (1963-1969). But Obama ranked fifth from the bottom...
