U.S. blames Houthi battlefield moves for renewed Saudi strikes | Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States squarely blamed Houthi fighters on Monday for renewed Saudi-led bombings, accusing them of using a relative lull in airstrikes meant to help set the stage for peace talks to instead pursue battlefield advances. Saudi-led aircraft pounded Iran-allied Houthi militiamen and rebel army units on Monday, dashing hopes for a pause in fighting to let aid in as relief officials warned of a catastrophic humanitarian crisis.

Exclusive – Deutsche’s radical revamp foiled by ECB stress test | Reuters

FRANKFURT (Reuters) - A radical plan for Deutsche Bank ( DBKGn.DE ) to become a pure investment bank and corporate lender was dropped after stress tests demanded by the European Central Bank concluded the model would not withstand a severe financial crisis, sources said.      Deutsche Bank, Germany's biggest lender, has spent much of this year looking at ways of reconfiguring its business to boost returns and had narrowed the choice to two possible models. The bank's co-chief executives, Anshu Jain and Juergen Fitschen, originally favoured shedding its entire retail business and becoming Europe's answer to Goldman Sachs ( GS.N ), sources familiar with internal discussions told Reuters. But they and other decision-makers later changed their view in the wake of the stress tests and a raft of demands by trade unions and political interests in Berlin. #Africa #Business #France #Italy #markets #Middle East #United Kingdom #United States

For hard-hit silver miners, gold is the silver lining | Reuters

VANCOUVER (Reuters) - Pure-play silver miners, a niche investment market popular with retail investors, are moving up the endangered list. Buffeted by a 68 percent plunge in the price of silver since 2011, miners who traditionally made most of their money from silver are increasingly diversifying into gold, buying mines that have been put up for sale and looking to acquire more. In addition to spurring deals in the precious metals space, the trend is reducing investment avenues for those wanting to take a bet on a commodity that often outperforms gold when bullion is rising. #Africa #Argentina #Business #France #Latin America #lifestyle #opinion #science #Sports #Technology #United Kingdom #United States
