Italy says 10 migrants die, 4,800 rescued in ongoing mission| Reuters

ROME (Reuters) - About 4,800 migrants were plucked from boats off the coast of Libya over the weekend and 10 bodies were recovered, Italy's coast guard and navy said, in what looked to be the biggest rescue operation of its kind so far this year. Two weeks after nearly 900 boat people drowned in the worst Mediterranean shipwreck in living memory, the flow of people desperate to reach a better life in Europe has accelerated as people smugglers take advantage of calmer seas. #Economy #United States #Egypt #Middle East #Greece #science #markets #Africa #Italy #Latin America #Austria #lifestyle

Three migrants dead after boat sinks off Egypt's coast| Reuters

CAIRO (Reuters) - Three people died when a boat carrying migrants to Europe sunk on Saturday off of Egypt's coast, security sources and state media in Egypt said. The deaths of as many as 700 people attempting a similar trip from Libya last month brought renewed international focus to the plight of migrants, thousands of whom attempt the dangerous trip across the Mediterranean Sea every year to seek a better life in Europe. In addition to the three who died at sea on Saturday, 31 other migrants were rescued by Egyptian authorities and subsequently arrested, including 13 Syrians, 15 Sudanese, two Eritreans and one Egyptian, the state-run Al Ahram newspaper said on its website #Business #Economy #India #Egypt #France #Middle East #Greece #science #markets #Argentina #Mexico

Greek PM says working hard for deal but disagreements remain| Reuters

ATHENS (Reuters) - Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said his government was working hard to reach an interim deal with EU and IMF lenders to unlock aid but that the two sides still disagreed on issues like labour reform and a proposed value-added tax hike. The lenders are also asking for pension cuts and urging the government to enact a law making it easier for companies to carry out mass layoffs, Tsipras told Star TV in an interview #Sports #India #Technology #France #Middle East #Greece #Africa #Mexico

EU rescue ships head for Libya, as migrants die also in Balkans| Reuters

BRUSSELS/SKOPJE (Reuters) - British and German warships made ready to sail for waters off Libya as Europe ramped up rescue operations in the Mediterranean after up to 900 desperate migrants drowned last weekend on a boat heading for Italy. Yet hours after European Union leaders agreed in Brussels on Thursday to treble funding for EU maritime missions and pledged more ships and aircraft, 14 clandestine migrants were killed when a train ploughed into dozens of Somalis and Afghans making their way in darkness along a rail track in a Macedonian gorge #Politics #United States #India #Greece #Afghanistan #Russia #science #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Entertainment

Greece's Tsipras to meet Merkel in Brussels as cash squeeze tightens| Reuters

ATHENS (Reuters) - Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras will meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel on the sidelines of an EU summit in Brussels on Thursday, the eve of a crucial meeting of euro zone finance ministers to assess progress made by Athens in its reform pledges. Since taking power in January, Tsipras's leftist government has been locked in talks with its EU/IMF lenders over a deal that will disburse further aid to the country, but risks running out of cash within weeks if the two sides fail to agree. Germany is the European Union's main paymaster with the strongest influence on how Greece's crisis would be resolved #India #Technology #France #Greece #markets #Africa #Argentina #Entertainment #lifestyle
