In first UK election TV encounter, Labour's Miliband shrugs off 'geek' accusations

In first UK election TV encounter, Labour's Miliband shrugs off 'geek' accusations

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's opposition Labour leader Ed Miliband rejected criticism that his image as "a geek" made him an electoral liability for his party, saying he didn't care what the country's mostly right-leaning press said about him. Opinion polls indicate neither Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservatives nor Labour will win an overall majority on May 7 as millions of voters turn to Nigel Farage's anti-EU UKIP party and the separatist Scottish National Party (SNP). With most of the British press set against him, Thursday's TV appearance -- which covered everything from immigration to economic policy -- was a rare opportunity for Miliband to talk to voters directly. #Business #facebook #United States #Brazil #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #Italy #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico
Airlines introduce two-person cockpit rule after Alps crash

Airlines introduce two-person cockpit rule after Alps crash

BERLIN/PARIS (Reuters) - Airlines rushed on Thursday to change rules to require a second crew member in the cockpit at all times, hours after French prosecutors suggested a co-pilot who barricaded himself alone at the controls of a jetliner had crashed it on purpose. The United States already requires two crew members to be in the cabin at all times, but many other countries do not, allowing pilots to leave the flight deck, for example to use the toilet, as long as one pilot is at the controls. That is precisely what French prosecutors suspect happened on the Germanwings flight on Tuesday #Business #facebook #United States #France #Russia #markets #Argentina #Latin America #Mexico

Yemeni leader Hadi leaves country as Saudi Arabia keeps up air strikes

SANAA/ADEN, Yemen (Reuters) - Yemen's President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi left his refuge in Aden for Saudi Arabia on Thursday as Houthi rebels battled with his forces on the outskirts of the southern port city. Throughout the day, warplanes from Saudi Arabia and Arab allies struck at the Shi'ite Houthis and allied army units, who have taken over much of the country and seek to oust Hadi. #Business #United States #Brazil #Arabic #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Entertainment #author

Niger, Chad troops pursue Boko Haram in Nigerian border area

DIFFA, Niger (Reuters) - Troops from Chad and Niger pursued Boko Haram fighters across a northern Nigeria border area on Thursday, driving them out of a village they held there and causing some to flee into Niger, two senior Niger military officers said. Niger and Chad are participating in a joint offensive along with Nigeria and Cameroon aimed at ending the Nigerian Islamist group's six-year insurgency, which has spilled across Nigeria's borders to threaten regional stability. #United States #India #China #Brazil #Arabic #Russia #Nigeria #Latin America #opinion
