A Tunisian soldier opened fire on colleagues at a military base in the capital Tunis on Monday, killing a colonel and wounding eight other soldiers before he was shot dead himself, an army spokesman and a security source said. It was not immediately clear what had triggered the shooting at the Bouchoucha base in Tunis, but it caused alarm in a capital city still on edge after an attack in March by Islamist gunmen on the Bardo national museum.

Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert hugs a friend during his trial on May 25, 2015 at Jerusalem's District CourtFormer Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert was sentenced to eight months in prison for corruption on Monday, the latest legal blow in a spectacular fall from grace. Lawyers for Olmert, who served as premier from 2006 to 2009, crowning a political career spanning decades, immediately announced they would appeal. The Jerusalem district court convicted Olmert of fraud and corruption in March following a retrial over allegations that he had received envelopes of cash from a US businessman while trade and industry minister in the early 2000s.

CORRECTS FROM CHIARA ROSE TO CHIARA D’ANGELO- In this Friday, May 22, 2015 photo provided by Reese Semanko, a woman identified as Chiara D’Angelo has suspended herself in a climbing harness from the anchor chain of the Royal Dutch Shell support ship Arctic Challenger in the harbor at Bellingham, Wash. Rob Lewis, spokesman for protest organizers Rising Tide Bellingham, said she was protesting Shell's plan for Arctic drilling. The Coast Guard said it has no plans to remove her but has impounded the activists' support vessels. The ship isn't scheduled to leave the port for several days. (Reese Semanko via AP)SEATTLE (AP) — One of two protesters who affixed themselves to an Arctic oil-drilling support ship parked north of Seattle left the vessel Sunday, but the other remained suspended from its anchor chain in an effort to draw attention to climate change and the risks an oil spill could pose in the remote waters off northwestern Alaska.
