Chelsea striker Diego Costa has been banned for three matches with immediate effect after being found guilty of a violent conduct charge, the Football Association announced Friday. The Spain international was suspended after a regulatory commission ruled he had stamped on the ankle of Liverpool's Emre Can in the 12th minute of Tuesday's League Cup semi-final second leg at Stamford Bridge, which Chelsea won 1-0 to complete a 2-1 aggregate victory. There is no right of appeal and Costa will now miss Premier League leaders Chelsea's match at home to title rivals Manchester City on Saturday and subsequent games against Aston Villa and Everton.
Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah said Friday his Shiite militant group is not seeking confrontation with Israel but does not fear a new war or taking the conflict beyond Lebanon's borders. Its response to any future Israeli attack will no longer be limited to Lebanese territory, he warned in an address via video link to thousands of supporters gathered in Hezbollah's southern Beirut stronghold. He said Hezbollah would no longer respect "the rules of engagement". His address came two days after Hezbollah carried out a missile strike that killed two Israeli soldiers in south Lebanon's occupied Shebaa Farms area on the border.
Gunmen fired at two US citizens Friday on a road in oil-rich Eastern Province, leaving one wounded, in the fourth anti-Western attack in Saudi Arabia in as many months, police said. The two Americans were travelling on a road in Shiite-populated Al-Ihsaa governorate of eastern Saudi Arabia, he said. A resident of Al-Ihsaa told AFP that police blocked off a part of the city where a National Guard facility and a Saudi Aramco hospital and training school are located. Last month, Saudi authorities arrested three IS supporters for allegedly shooting and wounding a Dane in his car in Riyadh.
The Obama administration on Friday proposed a plan to move most doctors, hospitals and their patients to national standards for handling electronic clinical data by the end of 2017. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), as part of an effort to propel the $2.9 trillion U.S. healthcare system away from a costly fee-for-service system, released a report draft aimed at establishing an inter operable health information technology system that can be accessed by patients and their healthcare providers. Policy experts say that national health IT standards would lead to transparency in medical data, prices and provider performance, while helping support hospitals and medical practices in pursuing care-delivery models that emphasize care quality and savings over quantity. Earlier this week, Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell announced the goal of moving 50 percent of fee-for-service Medicare payments to quality-care focused providers by the end of 2018.
