Earlier today, opposition parties except PPP decided to field the JUI-F chief for the post of the country’s president as the deadlock persisted over the nomination of Ahsan for the post. The three presidential candidates submitted their nomination papers in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) as the deadline ended at noon. • Um Louay and her nine children are returning to the Syrian city of Raqqa. Most of it was destroyed in the Western-led campaign to remove the Islamic State group from the city. They say living in their partially-destroyed house is better than being displaced in a camp.
