Top 3 Political Stories of the Day

The United States is planning to impose sanctions on individuals on both sides of the South Sudan conflict in the coming days, U.S. and other diplomatic sources told Reuters on Monday. The sources, who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity, said that the sanctions would involve a ban on travel to the United States and the freezing of any assets under U.S. authority. People on both the rebel and government sides will be targeted, the sources added, without disclosing names. The United States said on Monday it would recognize the main opposition Syrian National Coalition offices as a diplomatic foreign mission, and announced plans for a $27 million increase in non-lethal assistance to rebels fighting to oust President Bashar al-Assad. The announcement came at the start of a visit to Washington by a Syrian opposition delegation led by Ahmad Jarba, president of the coalition, also known as the Syrian Opposition Coalition. He is set to meet U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the former Egyptian army chief expected to win a presidential election this month, said he has already faced two assassination attempts, confirming rumors of plots to kill the general who deposed Islamist president Mohamed Mursi. Asked in a televised interview how many assassination attempts had been uncovered so far, Sisi replied: "Two attempts to assassinate me. I believe in fate, I am not afraid."
