Hillary Clinton says 'sorry' for confusion over email account| Reuters

WASHINGTON Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton said on Friday she was sorry that her use of a personal email account while secretary of state caused confusion, in her most contrite comments yet about an issue that is plaguing her White House bid. Clinton, the Democratic front-runner ahead of the November 2016 presidential election, did not apologize for her own behavior but said she was wrong not to use a government email account when she was serving as the nation's top diplomat. "At the end of the day I am sorry that this has been confusing to people and has raised a lot of questions but there are answers to all these questions," she told MSNBC in an interview #Technology #Middle East #Argentina #Latin America #clinton #Economy #India

Grand corruption is big stumbling block for new development goals - campaigners| Reuters

PUTRAYAYA, Malaysia (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - The most serious forms of corruption are one of the biggest threats to the new development goals due to be adopted by world leaders this month because they deprive the poor of millions of dollars, campaigners said. Nearly $1 trillion in illicit finance, much of it amassed by those in positions of high authority, is estimated to leave poor countries each year, money that could help replace shrinking aid budgets and support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). "Grand corruption is a big problem for development because of the massive amounts of money involved," Akaash Maharaj, executive director of the Global Organisation of Parliamentarians Against Corruption (GOPAC), told the Thomson Reuters Foundation on the sidelines of an international anti-corruption conference in Malaysia #United States #Europe #Africa #United Kingdom #Latin America

Special Report: Thai junta hits royal critics with record jail time| Reuters

BANGKOK Just minutes after being locked up for 30 years for insulting Thailands monarchy, Pongsak Sriboonpeng described what he thought was the cause of his capture: a poorly chosen Facebook friend. For at least a year, the self-described "red shirt" supporter of exiled former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra had posted angry commentary on the social networking site, including six postings that were later deemed to have defamed the royal family. He had also made an online acquaintance: a young man who seemed to share his views, and who invited him to visit. #Technology #Middle East #markets #military #Latin America #opinion #Crime
