Dzeko rescues point at Bologna as Barca clash distracts Roma.

Edin Dzeko rescued a 1-1 draw at Bologna on Saturday as Roma were hit by a Radja Nainggolan injury that could compromise their Champions League quarter-final clash at Barcelona in midweek. Second-half substitute Dzeko headed in after 76 minutes at the Stadio Dall’Ara after Erick Pulgar had given Bologna the lead on 18 minutes. Roma were chasing a fourth straight Serie A win to consolidate third place, but Inter Milan and Lazio can close the gap when they play bottom two Verona and Benevento respectively later on Saturday. “It’s difficult to explain what went wrong,” said Dzeko. “We were too slow in the first half, without movement, despite creating some interesting chances. They had one shot on goal and scored. “In the end we got an important point, even if we think that we ultimately dropped two here today.” Roma lacked speed with Bologna’s third-choice keeper Antonio Santurro proving the unlikely hero for his side. Santurro, 26, was appearing in first Serie A game with Antonio...

EU urges independent probe into Gaza deaths.

EU urges independent probe into Gaza deaths.

The EU’s diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini on Saturday called for an independent investigation into the use of live ammunition by Israel’s military following clashes in Gaza that left 16 Palestinians dead. “The EU mourns the loss of life. Our thoughts are with the families of the victims,” Mogherini said in a statement a day after the clashes, which also left hundreds wounded. “The use of live ammunition should, in particular, be part of an independent and transparent investigation,” she said. “Freedom of expression and freedom of assembly are fundamental rights that must be respected,” added Mogherini, a former Italian foreign minister who speaks on behalf of the European Union’s 28 member states. Friday’s major protest — the conflict’s worst single day of violence since the 2014 Gaza war — saw demonstrators including women and children gather at multiple sites throughout the blockaded territory, which is flanked by Israel along its eastern and northern borders. Smaller numbers approached within a few hundred metres (yards) of the...

Salah sinks Palace, Sanchez ends goal drought.

Mohamed Salah was Liverpool’s hero yet again as the Egypt star clinched a dramatic 2-1 win at Crystal Palace, while Alexis Sanchez ended his Manchester United goal drought in a 2-0 victory over Swansea on Saturday. Despite the huge Champions League quarter-final first leg against Manchester City looming on Wednesday, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp named his strongest side for the Premier League trip to south London. Luka Milivojevic drove struggling Palace into a 13th minute lead from the penalty spot after Loris Karius fouled Wilfried Zaha.But Senegal winger Sadio Mane levelled four minutes after the break with a close-range finish. Despite having one of his quieter games of an incredible debut season at Liverpool, Salah proved the match winner as he smashed home in the 84th minute. Salah, who has 37 goals in 42 games in all competitions this term, has scored in the joint-most Premier League matches (21) in a single 38-match season. That ties the mark set by Robin van Persie in 2012-13...

Turkey says France sending troops to Syria would be ‘invasion’.

Turkey on Saturday warned France against increasing its military presence in Syria, saying it would be an “invasion”, as tensions between Paris and Ankara remained high. Temperatures were raised after French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday met a delegation of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) made up of Kurdish and Arab fighters. Kurdish officials said afterwards that France was planning to send new troops to Manbij a northern Syrian town held by the Kurdish YPG militia which Paris denied. “If France takes any steps regarding its military presence in northern Syria, this would be an illegitimate step that would go against international law and in fact, it would be an invasion,” Turkish Defence Minister Nurettin Canikli said. “Especially if they intend to support terror group elements or give direct or indirect protection with armed forces, this would be a really calamitous step,” he added during a visit to the northeastern province of Giresun. Turkey itself sent troops into Syria and launched an operation against the...
