Obama to make history, stirs debate with Hiroshima visit | Reuters

HIROSHIMA, Japan Barack Obama will on Friday becomes the first U.S. president to visit Hiroshima, site of the world's first atomic bombing, a gesture Washington and Tokyo hope will showcase their alliance and breathe life into stalled efforts to abolish nuclear arms. Even before it occurs, though, the visit has stirred debate, with critics accusing both sides of having selective memories, and pointing to paradoxes in policies relying on nuclear deterrence while calling for an end to atomic arms. #United States #Economy #Middle East #Foreign policy #article

Al Qaeda still reaping oil profits in Yemen despite battlefield reverses | Reuters

DUBAI/LONDON/CAIRO Al Qaeda may have been pushed out of the enclave it carved out in Yemen as the country descended into civil war, but the militants are still entrenched in other parts of the country's south, reaping profits from smuggled fuel. Scores of militants were killed in a Gulf Arab-backed offensive on Al Qaeda's de facto capital of Mukalla, Yemen's third largest seaport, but hundreds fled to neighbouring Shabwa province and beyond. A month later, al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) is thriving by joining diverse armed groups in taxing fuel delivered illicitly to remote beaches along the Arabian Sea coast, security, tribal and shipping sources say #Business #France #Argentina #United Kingdom #Entertainment #Foreign policy #article

Egyptian crash investigator says French vessel joining black box search | Reuters

CAIRO Egypt's air accidents chief said on Thursday that a vessel provided by French company ALSEAMAR, which specializes in marine wreckage searches, will join within hours the hunt for the black boxes from crashed EgyptAir flight MS804. A week after the Airbus A320 crashed into the Mediterranean with 66 people on board, including 30 Egyptians and 15 from France, investigators have no clear picture of its final moments. Search teams are working against the clock to recover the two black box flight recorders that will offer vital clues to investigators, because the signals that help locate them in deep water cease transmitting after about 30 days. #Business #markets #Argentina #Entertainment #Foreign policy #article
