CNN: Somalia’s government signed an agreement Monday with an opposition alliance calling to end violence and withdraw of Ethiopian troops, whose presence has stoked an increasingly bloody Islamic insurgency.

The deal is an important step toward peace, but it remains to be seen if it will be respected by hardline members of the opposition who have denounced those who took part in the U.N.-led talks in Djibouti.

CNN: Prime Minister Han Seung-soo and the South Korean Cabinet offered to resign Tuesday amid an uproar over an unpopular deal to resume importing U.S. beef, the Yonhap news agency reported.

Washington Post: Mayhill Fowler says she never planned to ask Bill Clinton the question that unleashed a decidedly unpresidential tirade.

But in the crush of the crowd in South Dakota last Monday, when she raised the topic of “that hatchet job” on him in Vanity Fair, the former president called the article’s author “slimy,” “sleazy” and a “scumbag,” tightly gripping Fowler’s hand the whole time. “I’m sure he had no idea who I was,” the 61-year-old Tennessee native says.
