Military: `Eerily quiet'

The US military says Iraq's two main guerrilla fronts appear to be "eerily quiet" today. Residents of the besieged city of Fallujah left their homes to shop amid weekend negotiations between the Americans and local leaders. An Iraqi delegation entered Fallujah for new talks today. No word on whether the Americans are taking part in this round of talks. Meantime, a rebel Shiite Muslim militia loyal to a renegade cleric is sticking to a cease-fire called in the south. US forces say they're in no hurry to retake the city of Najaf from the followers of cleric Muqtada al-Sadr. The cleric yesterday called a two-day cease-fire to mark the anniversary of the death of the Prophet Muhammad. He also ordered a halt to attacks on Spanish troops based in the area. That follows Spain's decision to withdraw its forces from the country as soon as possible.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, Finland, Monday, July 16, 2018.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
