Former British Prime Minister John Major arrives for a memorial service for the broadcaster David Frost at Westminster Abbey in London(Reuters) - Former British Prime Minister John Major will urge voters on Tuesday to reject a "weak and unstable" Labour government subjected to a "daily dose of political blackmail" by the Scottish National Party (SNP), the Times reported. Opposition leader Ed Miliband would be dragged to the left and sacrifice the interests of the rest of the United Kingdom to keep SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon's support, Major will say, the newspaper reported. British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Sunday that he was getting advice from Major, who took to the streets on a soapbox to secure a shock win against a confident Labour in 1992. Polls indicate that a hung parliament is the most likely outcome of the May 7 election, with neither Cameron's Conservatives nor the opposition Labour Party likely to win an outright majority.

By David Bailey MINNEAPOLIS (Reuters) - U.S. authorities have charged six young Somali-American men from Minnesota with planning to join Islamic State and fight for the militant group in Syria, the U.S. attorney for Minnesota said on Monday. The six, all U.S. citizens, were part of a larger group of friends and relatives who had been conspiring for the past 10 months, many trying multiple times to leave the country, federal prosecutors alleged. Their arrests on Sunday capped a yearlong FBI investigation into would-be Islamic State recruits seeking to journey abroad, and there was no evidence the accused had plans to carry out any attacks inside the United States, prosecutors said. Dozens of people from the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, many of them young Somali-American men, have traveled or attempted to travel overseas to support Islamic State or al Shabaab, a Somalia-based militant group, since 2007, according to U.S. prosecutors.
