Pockets of violence erupt in Baltimore after march to protest black man’s death | Reuters

BALTIMORE (Reuters) - Thousands of people marched through downtown Baltimore on Saturday to protest the unexplained death of a black man in police custody but the demonstrations turned violent when some protesters threw metal objects at officers and broke windows. Saturday's protests began peacefully, with at least 2,000 demonstrators marching to City Hall for a rally, the biggest since 25-year-old Freddie Gray died six days ago, a week after his arrest. But later, as darkness fell, some protesters fanned out across the city and damaged stores and cars #Argentina #Business #Italy #lifestyle #Middle East #opinion #science #Sports #Technology #United Kingdom #United States

India starts up 300,000 bpd Paradip refinery – sources | Reuters

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Indian Oil Corp ( IOC.NS ), the country's biggest refiner, on Sunday began crude processing at its 300,000 barrel per day (bpd) Paradip refinery and aims to fully commission the plant in six months, two company sources said, potentially adding to the glut of oil products in the region.

Syrian jets pound insurgent-held town – monitor | Reuters

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syrian jets carried out at least 20 air strikes on the town of Jisr al-Shughour in northwestern Syria on Sunday, a group monitoring the war said, one day after it was seized by Islamist fighters closing in on government-held territory by the coast. Syrian state television said the military had ambushed some militants close to Jisr al-Shughour, which was captured on Saturday for the first time in the four-year conflict by a hardline Islamist alliance including al-Qaeda. Syrian television also reported that the insurgents had slaughtered civilians, but the Observatory said only government supporters had been detained and no one killed. #function-check #function-shr #table #var-local #var-paragraph #var-symbol #var-web #WebTrends #webtrends-multi

Newsmaker – Ruthless VW patriarch Piech overplays last hand | Reuters

FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Ferdinand Piech's iron-fisted rule over Volkswagen helped him build an empire spanning fuel-efficient city cars to 40-tonne trucks, but in the end he overplayed his hand and was forced out before reaching his goal of making VW the world's biggest carmaker. A grandson of Ferdinand Porsche, the founder of the sports-car maker who developed the Beetle under a 1934 contract with the Nazis, Piech devoted his life and a 51-year career in the auto industry to making Volkswagen No. 1. #Argentina #Business #Economy #France #India #Italy #lifestyle #opinion #Politics #Sports #Technology
