**Israeli Troops Demolish Homes of Kidnapping Suspects**
Israeli troops have demolished the homes of two Palestinians suspected in the kidnapping and killing of three Israeli teens in June, which helped sparked a war that has left more than 2,000 people dead.
The army said it demolished the homes Monday and sealed off the home of a third suspect.
One of the men, Hussam Kawasma, was taken into custody in July, while the other two remain at large.
The demolitions come as the two sides near the end of a five-day cease-fire during which negotiators have not been able to agree on a lasting end to the fighting.
The truce runs out at the end of the day Monday.
Israel has been seeking the demilitarization of Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip, while Palestinians want Israel to end its eight-year blockade of Gaza.
Pope Francis Issues Farewell Message of Peace on Korean Peninsula
Pope Francis ended his first visit to Asia Monday with a call for reconciliation between South Korea and its bitter communist rival, North Korea.
The pontiff issued his call for peace on the troubled Korean peninsula at a Mass at Seoul's Myeongdong cathedral that was attended by South Korean President Park Geun-hye. He said reconciliation would only come through forgiveness, even though it may seem "impossible, impractical and even at times repugnant."
Catholic officials in South Korea urged Pyongyang to send a delegation from the state-run Korean Catholic Association to Seoul for the Mass, but the regime rejected the invitation, citing the annual joint military drills between South Korea and the United States, which also began Monday.
The North has vowed to launch a "merciless" preemptive strike against the South if the drills take place.
