Syrian government forces will march to Raqqa soon, Iranian official says
Located in Anbar province, al-Qaim was the most important population centre in Iraq to remain under IS control. Deir Ezzor was also fully liberated on Friday, according to Syrian state media outlet SANA.

Dina Wadia is survived by her son and Wadia group chairman Nusli N Wadia, daughter Diana N Wadia, and great-grandsons Ness and Jeh Wadia, the spokesperson said in a statement, Times of India reported. Born on the night between August 14 and 15 in 1919 in London, Dina's relation with Jinnah suffered when she chose to marry a Parsi man against her father's wishes. Their marriage, however, lasted for only a few years and Ms Wadia moved to NY after her separation with Neville Wadia.

The 36-year-old was named as a substitute for the game, meaning that Marseille could start with the full complement of 11.

She was 98-years-old at the time of her passing. One of the photos shows Dina standing with Jinnah and aunt, Fatima. She and Neville lived in Mumbai and had two children before the couple divorced. She visited Pakistan twice, once in 1948, for her father's funeral, and the second time, in a much documented visit, in 2004. Dina moved to Bombay with Neville and became a mother of two, a girl and a boy. Detailing this visit, the report said she visited the mausoleum and wrote: "This has been very sad and wonderful for me". The distance between father and daughter grew after Ruttie's death in 1929, and it came as no surprise that she stayed back in India after Partition. "May his dream for Pakistan come true".

Browns Receiver Josh Gordon Reinstated Again, Eligible to Play in Week 13
The veteran wideout was reinstated Wednesday by National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell on a conditional basis. The team has a pressing need for a playmaker at wide receiver and Gordon can fill that void - if he can stay clean.

I was fortunate enough to have met the elegant and spirited personality, Zinta said in a tweet while admiring her. In the early 1990s, Dina staked her claim to Jinnah House, the grand mansion in Malabar Hill where she grew up, and which the government considered to be "evacuee property'".
