    Conservative Ivan Duque won Colombia's presidential election Sunday after a campaign that turned into a referendum on a landmark 2016 peace deal with FARC rebels that he pledged to overhaul. Duque, 41, polled 54 percent to his leftist rival Gustavo Petro's 42 percent with almost all the votes counted, electoral authority figures showed. Tensions over the deal became apparent in the immediate aftermath of Duque's victory, after the president-elect lost no time in pledging "corrections" to the peace deal.

    Yemeni pro-government forces, backed by Saudi Arabia, battled Huthi rebels around the key port city of Hodeida on Sunday, as a top UN envoy held crisis talks with the insurgents in the capital. Saudi Arabia and its allies in a regional military coalition on Wednesday launched an offensive aimed at retaking the Red Sea city of Hodeida, home to the country's most valuable port which is controlled by the Iran-backed Huthis. The United Nations has warned the offensive could spark a fresh humanitarian crisis in a country already hit by war and impending famine, sending its envoy for Yemen to the capital Sanaa in a bid to come to a solution with the rebels.

    The Taliban on Sunday ordered its fighters in Afghanistan to avoid gatherings of security forces and civilians, a day after a suicide bomber killed 25 people including members of the militant group celebrating an unprecedented ceasefire. It was the first formal nationwide ceasefire since the 2001 US invasion and the display of jubilation and unity has fuelled hopes among war-weary Afghans that peace is possible. The attack on a crowd celebrating the truce in Rodat district also wounded 54 people and was blamed by officials on the Islamic State group.

    A taxi mounted the pavement near Moscow's Red Square on Saturday evening, ploughing into a group of people and injuring eight. Early reports say that Mexico fans are among the injured, as some of those involved were wearing Mexican team colours. Police said the driver likely lost control of the vehicle and has been detained. Two ambulances quickly arrived at the scene and seven people were taken to hospital.  There were no immediate details on the severity of the pedestrians' injuries, although a medical source told local media that none of them were grave. The driver, a citizen of Kyrgyzstan, said he did not act on purpose, according to Moscow authorities.  The taxi lost a bumper and toppled a parking sign during the incident Credit: Twitter Interfax media reported sources saying the driver may have been drunk. The accident took place on Ilinka Street, about 650 feet from Red Square and Moscow's famous GUM shopping arcade. Russia is currently hosting the World Cup and Moscow is one of 11 Russian cities where tournament games are being played.  Although it did not initially appear to be deliberate, it will hardly lessen fears of a terrorist threat during the World Cup.  Ambulances take injured people away in the aftermath of the accident Credit: Twitter Russia has earned the enmity of jihadi groups with its bombing campaign against the Islamic State and rebels in Syria, and Islamists have reportedly threatened fans at the tournament. Last year, 16 people were killed when a lone wolf attacker blew himself up in the metro in St Petersburg, the World Cup host city near where the England team is based for the tournament.  An ambulance parked near the damaged taxi that injured seven when it mounted the pavement  Credit: Jack Stubbs/Reuters Moscow has struggled for years with a simmering Islamist insurgency in the Caucasus region, where it fought two bloody wars in Chechnya.    Tens of thousands of police have been deployed to World Cup cities, along with national guardsmen and Cossacks, the traditional caste of horse warriors. The taxi is towed away from the scene of the crash, just a few hundred yards from the Kremlin Credit: Reuters Anti-aircraft missiles and drone-jamming devices have been protecting the skies near stadiums.  The influx of police into World Cup cities has been so great that police in at least one other city have worried crime could go up there.
