Ukraine's Mariupol holds its breath for next rebel move

MARIUPOL, Ukraine (Reuters) - Scanning the sky for incoming artillery fire has become a force of habit for Ukrainian beetroot-seller Svetlana Kumurzhi, who dived under her wooden stall in government-held Mariupol when shells rained down a month ago. While a fragile two-week-old ceasefire shows signs of holding, Kiev says pro-Russian separatists are using the truce to regroup their forces, especially around Mariupol, a strategically important port city in Ukraine's southeast. Control of the industrial hub would help the rebels form a corridor to the Crimea peninsula which Russia annexed from Ukraine last year. #Business #Economy #facebook #Brazil #Arabic #markets #Argentina #Entertainment #author #opinion

Three arrested at Hong Kong anti-China protest, scuffles with police

HONG KONG (Reuters) - At least three people were arrested as a group of about 400 people in Hong Kong clashed with police in the latest sign of ongoing tensions caused by China's influence in the city. Protesters in Yuen Long, in Hong Kong's New Territories just a stone's throw from mainland China, chanted to "cancel the multiple-entry permit" and "topple the Chinese Communist Party" as they complained against so-called parallel traders, who buy goods in Hong Kong to sell at a profit across the border. Demonstrators blocked the area's main street with garbage bins, halting traffic. #Economy #facebook #United States #India #Brazil #France #Arabic #United Kingdom #Entertainment #chinese #opinion #city

The United Nations-brokered deal seeks to tackle decades of uprisings and instability in northern Mali, where Western and regional powers worry Islamist militants could return two years after French military intervention drove them out.

Egypt court ruling opens way for possible election delay

CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt's Supreme Constitutional Court ruled on Sunday that an article in an election-related law was unconstitutional, paving the way for a possible delay in a long-awaited March-April parliamentary poll. Egypt has been without a parliament since June 2012, when a court dissolved the democratically elected main chamber, reversing a major accomplishment of the 2011 uprising that toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak. #Business #India #China #Japan #Brazil #Technology #France #Investment #Russia #markets #Entertainment #Mexico

Netanyahu takes Iran campaign to Jerusalem holy site

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli Prime Benjamin Netanyahu took his campaign against a nuclear deal with Iran to Jerusalem's sacred Western Wall on Saturday, on the eve of his departure to Washington to address Congress on the issue.
