A court sentenced three Muslim militants to death Saturday for killing 26 police officers. Two of the men were sentenced in absentia, however, and will have to be retried if they are captured. The sentences must be approved by Egypt's senior Islamic cleric, largely a formality. Executions in Egypt are usually carried out by hanging.

GAZA CITY - Rival Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas on Wednesday announced a reconciliation deal to end their seven-year schism, in a further blow to U.S.-led efforts to broker a peace agreement between the Palestinians and Israelis. Leaders of the groups said they will form a unity government within five weeks, solicit a vote of confidence from the Palestinian parliament, then schedule elections in six months. "This is good news to tell our people: The era of division is over," Ismail Haniyeh, prime minister of Hamas, declared at a news conference here.

CAIRO - Chickens huddle in crates near the butcher's block. A shopkeeper stacks mangoes, his hands sticky, drawing flies. Laborers linger in thinning shade and mothers tilt toward home with groceries. A thirst rises. It will be hours before it's quenched. Even the ice man, bent and dripping, hurrying through Koran verses spinning from an old radio, does not allow water to pass his lips. He waits - like everyone else in this listless street market off the Nile - for the heat to ease and the shadows to lengthen.

Security forces in tiny but strategic Bahrain launched a brutal assault early Thursday against at least 1,000 defiant anti-government protesters, including women and children, camped out in tents in the capital's Pearl Square. A barrage of tear gas canisters thundered across the square about 3 a.m. as dozens of police cars, armored security vehicles and ambulances converged on the makeshift tent city in the center of Manama that was beginning to resemble a smaller version of Tahrir Square in Cairo, where Egyptian protesters overthrew their president.
