Afghanistan extends ceasefire after suicide attack kills 25

Afghanistan extends ceasefire after suicide attack kills 25An Afghan government ceasefire with the Taliban was extended Saturday despite a suicide bombing killing at least 25, which marred an otherwise remarkable Eid holiday that has seen militants hugging security forces and civilians in celebration of the unprecedented truce. President Ashraf Ghani made the announcement in a rare televised address, in which he also asked the Taliban to extend their three-day ceasefire, which is due to end Sunday night. “I order the security forces to remain on their defensive positions,” Ghani said, adding details of the extension would be released later.

Merck's Keytruda extends lung cancer survival in two trialsBy Deena Beasley CHICAGO (Reuters) – Merck & Co’s immunotherapy Keytruda improved survival as a stand-alone treatment for newly-diagnosed lung cancer patients and with chemotherapy for hard-to-treat squamous cell lung cancer, new data released on Sunday showed, further cementing the company’s lead in the most lucrative oncology market. Keytruda is competing with drugs from Roche, Bristol-Myers Squibb and others that also unleash the body’s immune system to attack tumors for dominance in lung cancer. The new results, presented at the American Society for Clinical Oncology (ASCO) meeting in Chicago, add to the view that Keytruda has “set the floor against which other therapies will need to be compared,” Roy Baynes, head of clinical development at Merck, told Reuters.
