More violence in China's Xinjiang, prominent academic indicted

BEIJING (Reuters) - China formally indicted a prominent ethnic Uighur professor for separatism on Wednesday, as security forces flooded into the far western region of Xinjiang amid more reports of violence following what the government called a terrorist attack. Police in Beijing in January detained Ilham Tohti, a well-known economist who has championed the rights of the Muslim Uighur community, who come from Xinjiang. He was subsequently taken to the regional capital Urumqi and accused of promoting and supporting Xinjiang's independence from China, a red line for Beijing which views the region as an inseparable part of the country #facebook #India #China #Japan #Brazil #Technology #Russia #Health #Government #United Kingdom #Entertainment #Mexico

U.S. restricts travel by Venezuelan officials

WASHINGTON/CARACAS (Reuters) - The United States imposed travel restrictions on Wednesday on some Venezuelan government officials it accuses of rights abuses in a crackdown on protests against President Nicolas Maduro this year. Three months of demonstrations led by hard-line opposition and student leaders earlier this year led to violence that killed 43 people in the South American OPEC member nation's worst unrest for a decade. Demonstrators said they were protesting economic hardships and dictatorial government, but Maduro, who replaced the late Hugo Chavez last year, called them a cover for a U.S.-backed "coup" attempt against him. #facebook #India #China #France #Arabic #Health #Government #Latin America #Netherlands #Mexico

Air Algerie jet plunged rapidly from altitude before crash - official

DAKAR (Reuters) - The Air Algerie flight that crashed in Mali last week appears to have plummeted to the ground from an altitude of 10,000 metres in just a few minutes after flying into a storm, a senior official involved in the investigation was quoted as saying. French officials have said they believe bad weather was most likely to blame for the crash, which killed all 118 passengers and crew when the McDonnell Douglas MD-83 aircraft smashed into the ground south of the Malian town of Gossi, near the border with Burkina Faso. Pilots of the plane, which left the Burkinabe capital Ouagadougou en route for Algiers in the early hours of Thursday morning, asked for permission to alter their route due to poor weather as they flew north. #United States #India #Business #Technology #France #Arabic #Health #markets #Entertainment
