At least six dead in attacks on southern Yemen army posts

ADEN (Reuters) - Militant attacks on two army outposts in southern Yemen killed at least eight people early on Sunday, local officials said, two months after the government said it had cleared that area of al Qaeda fighters in an offensive. Yemen, with help from the United States, is battling an insurgency by Islamist militants including members of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), which has also planned attacks on international airliners and other foreign targets. The area of Mahfad in Abyan Province of southern Yemen was the scene of some heavy fighting in May between the army and militants in a government campaign to reclaim territory under effective AQAP control #India #China #Business #Brazil #Technology #Government #markets #Mexico #opinion

Venezuela leader rallies socialists at first post-Chavez congress

CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela's ruling Socialist Party began a six-day congress on Saturday with President Nicolas Maduro seeking to fire up militants and quell dissidents who say he is failing to fix the economy or end graft. It was the party's third congress since formation in 2008, but the first without its charismatic founder, former president Hugo Chavez who died last year of cancer after ruling the South American OPEC nation for 14 years. #facebook #Economy #Business #Brazil #Arabic #Venezuela #Government #Latin America #Mexico

And this is precisely why languages have always played a dominant role in shaping our histories and have influenced the way we think and perceive things. #Modi #Hindi #Narendra Modi government

Report on NGO funds: Is the Intelligence Bureau on a witch hunt?

The first thing first. All NGOs should be made accountable. They must make full and public disclosure of their funding and expenditure. They must also be made answerable under the RTI Act. The voluntary sector is a den of corruption and needs to be set straight. #Greenpeace #Modi government #PM Narendra Modi #IB report on NGOs #Greenpeace NGO
