A Yemeni walks past a vehicle which was damaged the day before during an air strike by Saudi-led coalition warplanes on the nearby base on Fajj Attan hill on April 21, 2015 in the capital SanaaA Saudi-led coalition declared an end Tuesday to four weeks of air strikes in Yemen, saying it had eliminated the threat of Iran-backed rebels, as Washington welcomed the move and urged talks to end the crisis. The coalition said its operations have entered a political phase but left open the option of resuming strikes if the movements of the Huthi Shiite rebels warrant it, while adding that a naval and air blockade on the strategic country at the tip of the Arabian Peninsula will continue. A coalition of Sunni Arab nations launched the strikes in a bid to restore the authority of Hadi, who fled to the Saudi capital as the Shiite rebels advanced on the key southern city of Aden. While the White House said it "welcomed" the decision to halt air strikes, it urged talks to end the crisis that threatened to draw regional powers into direct conflict.

The sun sets on the address where Nav Sarao Futures Limited is registered, in HounslowA high-frequency trader was arrested in London over his alleged role in the May 2010 "flash crash" that briefly wiped out nearly $1 trillion in market value, the first time authorities have blamed manipulation for the turbulence. The U.S. Justice Department said on Tuesday that it had criminally charged Navinder Singh Sarao, 36, of London, with wire fraud, commodities fraud and manipulation. "His conduct was at least significantly responsible for the order imbalance that in turn was one of the conditions that led to the flash crash," said Aitan Goelman, head of enforcement at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, which filed parallel civil charges against Sarao on Tuesday. The case marks the first time U.S. regulators have alleged that market manipulation played a role in the flash crash, in which the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged more than 1,000 points before recovering somewhat toward the end of trading.
