Greece, creditors to hold more debt talks Saturday
Greece and its international creditors will meet Saturday in Paris to discuss Athens' massive debt bailout programme and reforms it must adopt in exchange for urgently needed funds, sources said. Progress in the talks has so far proved elusive while Athens is running out of money to pay its creditors, raising the risk of a default and a potentially chaotic exit from the single currency bloc. "The Brussels group is meeting this weekend as of tomorrow afternoon," European Commission spokeswoman Mina Andreeva told a press conference Friday. The Brussels group is made up of Greece, the European Union, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund, plus the European Stability Mechanism, which issues bonds or other debt instruments on the financial markets to raise capital to aid member states.

Terror arrests in Australia over planned Anzac Day attack
Two men were arrested in Australia on Saturday for allegedly planning an Islamic State-inspired terrorist attack using "edged knives" on a ceremony commemorating Anzac soldiers who have fought and died for their country. Seven search warrants were executed in Melbourne by a joint counter-terrorism team, two months after Prime Minister Tony Abbott warned the threat from home-grown extremists was worsening. "It is alleged both men were undertaking preparations for planning terrorist acts in Melbourne, which included targeting police officers," Victoria state and federal police said in a joint statement. The arrests also come just days after Australia began deploying 330 more troops to Iraq for two years to train local soldiers fighting jihadists including the Islamic State group, joining an aerial and special forces contingent in the region.
