The mortar barrage came as Pompeo was preparing to meet with representatives of the Afghan government and the Taliban, who are holding talks in the Arabian Gulf nation of Qatar, though progress has been slow. Abdullah Abdullah, the Afghan government's chief negotiator in peace talks, condemned Saturday's attack in a tweet calling it a "cowardly" act. Members of Taliban's peace negotiation team met with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in the Qatari capital Doha, on Saturday.

Tolkien known for "The Lord of the Rings" fantasy trilogy are in for an unexpected treat. Previously unseen collections of writings from the author will be published next year and shed new light on works including "The Lord of the Rings," "The Silmarillion" and "Unfinished Tales," U.S. publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt said Thursday. Brody said it was not well-known that the author continued to write about Middle-earth right until the years before his death in 1973. Tolkien published "The Hobbit" in 1937 and "The Lord of the Rings" in three parts between 1954 and 1955. "For those of us who dive over Tolkien's writings, to have something totally new and fresh, which no one has read before is very exciting," he said.

LONDON — Prince William has welcomed an investigation into how Britain's public broadcaster secured a bombshell interview with his mother, Princess Diana, 25 years ago, following accusations she was tricked into taking part. Late Wednesday, the prince's office issued a statement saying that the Duke of Cambridge "tentatively welcomed" an independent inquiry into the 1995 BBC Panorama show interview with his mother. "The independent investigation is a step in the right direction," William said in the statement. The BBC interview came under fresh scrutiny this month after a new documentary, "The Diana Interview: Revenge of a Princess," alleged that Bashir used dishonest tactics to earn the princess's trust. Journalist Martin Bashir interviews Princess Diana in Kensington Palace for the television program Panorama in 1995.

BALLINA, Ireland — Some 3,000 miles east of Delaware, nestled inland from Ireland's wild Atlantic coast, lies the small town of Ballina, the ancestral home of President-elect Joe Biden. Blewitt emigrated after the Irish Potato Famine of the 1840s to Biden's birthplace of Scranton, Pennsylvania, now a sister city of Ballina. Clodagh Kilcoyne / ReutersBut Biden's Irish roots, although a boon for Ballina, may be causing some in London to bristle. After officially leaving in January this year, Johnson's government is now in the midst of negotiating a trade deal with the bloc. Biden has cautioned London to honor the 1998 agreement or there could be no separate post-Brexit U.S. trade deal, which Westminster craves.

LONDON — More than two decades after her death in a car crash shocked the world, Britain's Princess Diana is back in the headlines. Released on Sunday, "The Crown" follows Britain's royal family from the 1970s as an "appropriate" bride for the heir to the throne is sought to safeguard succession, before the fairy-tale union spins out of control. "Princess Diana was an icon, and her effect on the world remains profound and inspiring," British actress Emma Corrin, who plays the royal, said in a news release. The royal family seemed "complicated" because the human need to "feel fulfilled and feel loved" often "jars" with the demands of being a royal, Corrinsaid in a separate interview with NBC News. It was so important because it was the first time that Diana put on record feelings about her royal life and marriage.
