Egypt sends robot submarine to help plane crash search | Reuters

CAIRO Egypt has sent a robot submarine to join the hunt for an EgyptAir plane which crashed in some of the deepest waters of the Mediterranean Sea with 66 people on board, President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said on Sunday. Ships and planes scouring the sea north of Alexandria have found body parts, personal belongings and debris from the Airbus 320, but are still trying to locate the black box recorders that could shed light on the cause of Thursday's crash. #France #Middle East #Europe #markets #article #graphics

Turkey's incoming PM Yildirim says new constitution top priority | Reuters

ANKARA Turkey's incoming prime minister said his new government's top priority would be a new constitution to create an executive presidency, a move that would give President Tayyip Erdogan the broad powers he has long sought. Binali Yildirim also told a special congress of the ruling AK Party on Sunday that he would continue the fight against Islamic State and Kurdish militants at home and in Syria, saying the change in leadership would not affect the campaign. "The problems of this nation and the love of this nation are the president's responsibility," he said. #Politics #Business #France #Argentina #United Kingdom

PARIS/CAIRO The EgyptAir jet which crashed in the Mediterranean on Thursday sent a series of warnings indicating that smoke had been detected on board, shortly before it disappeared off radar screens, French investigators said on Saturday. A spokesman for France's BEA air accident investigation agency said the signals did not indicate what caused the smoke or fire on board the plane, which plunged into the sea with 66 people on board as it was heading from Paris to Cairo. #France #Europe #markets #Entertainment #article #graphics

Europe's neutral anomaly fetes 200 years beyond borders | Reuters

KELMIS, Belgium A small town in Belgium that spent a century living outside the map of Europe's great power system celebrates the 200th anniversary of the quirky autonomy it secured in the wake of the Napoleonic wars. Neutral Moresnet was the name given to the sliver of land, barely a square mile, that was home to a key deposit of the zinc ore calamine. It inspired tourists and anarchists - and utopian enthusiasts for the world language Esperanto - before succumbing to another round of the European bloodshed that gave it birth #India #Business #France #Europe #United Kingdom #Belgium #Netherlands

Cooler weather welcomed in Canada's fire-stricken energy heartland | Reuters

CALGARY Firefighters battling a massive blaze in Canada's energy heartland were aided on Friday by a second day of light rain and winds that held flames back from oil sands facilities, as producers signaled a gradual increase in operations. The wildfire in northern Alberta has blackened more than 500,000 hectares (1.2 million acres) of land, six times the size of New York City, since it erupted earlier this month. It also triggered a prolonged shutdown that has cut Canadian oil output by a million barrels a day. #Economy #France #Middle East #science #Argentina #United Kingdom #article

Paris attack suspect refuses to speak at first French court hearing | Reuters

PARIS The man prosecutors believe is the sole survivor of the Islamist group that attacked Paris in November appeared in a French court for the first time on Friday, but refused to speak. Salah Abdeslam was brought to court in central Paris from his cell in a high-security prison outside the city, but the hearing was cut short after it became clear he would not talk. "From the start he made clear he would be exercising his right to silence, refusing to respond to questions from the judge," a spokesman from the prosecutor's office said in a text message to Reuters #France #Middle East #markets #United Kingdom #Entertainment #article
