Cult of personality: Turkmen leader gets park tribute on birthday | Reuters

ASHGABAT Turkmenistan, which rights groups view as one of the most repressive countries in the world, celebrated President Kurbanguly Berdymukhamedov's 58th birthday on Monday by opening a park in the capital Ashgabat bearing his name. It was the latest tribute to the leader who took over the Central Asian nation after the death of his predecessor in December 2006. Last month, Turkmenistan unveiled a gilded 6-metre-high statue of Berdymukhamedov on horseback perched on a white cliff. #Business #Economy #Entertainment #markets #Middle East #science

Factbox: Gulf Arabs on the rise in Islamic State | Reuters

REUTERS - Islamic State, which claimed responsibility for Kuwait's worst militant attack last Friday, has built a network of militants in Gulf Arab states responsible for a campaign of suicide bombings against the Arabian Peninsula's Shi'ite minority. Some of the Sunni Muslim group's leaders hail from the Gulf, and its Saudi branch, called Wilayat Najd (Najd province), has called for clearing Shi'ites from the Peninsula and especially from Saudi Arabia, its largest country and home to Islam's holiest places. Islamic State subscribes to a puritanical school of Sunni Islam that considers Shi'ites as heretics and wants to sweep away a hereditary monarchy it regards as un-Islamic #Business #India #Iraq #Kuwait #Latin America #markets

Defiant Greeks rally behind rejection of creditor terms | Reuters

ATHENS Thousands of Greeks rallied on Monday behind a 'No' vote in a referendum called for July 5 on the terms of an aid deal offered by Greece's international creditors, a result that risks pushing Athens out of Europe's currency union. With Greece set to default on a 1.6-million-euro loan repayment to the International Monetary Fund on Tuesday, at least 20,000 defiant supporters of Alexis Tsipras' left-wing government packed the main avenue in front of parliament, rallying behind his call to reject the package and more austerity. #France #India #Latin America #markets #opinion

Greek crisis pushes oil to around $62, hits three-week low | Reuters

LONDON Oil fell more than $1 to around $62 per barrel on Monday, touching its lowest in three weeks, as Greece shut its banks and imposed capital controls, causing investors to flee from riskier assets and darkening the demand outlook. Brent crude was down $1.18 at $62.08 a barrel by 1316 GMT. It fell earlier to $61.35, its lowest since June 5, and was heading for its weakest closing price since April 15 #Economy #Europe #India #Latin America #Technology #United Kingdom
