Dutchman praised for MH17 crash handling in race for top EU job

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Frans Timmermans, the Netherlands' nominee to join the European Commission, is an experienced Brussels hand who represents his country's last best hope of securing a top job in the European Union's executive. The Dutch foreign minister and career diplomat, who was entered as a last-minute candidate over eurogroup chair Jeroen Dijsselbloem, is a staunch pro-European and a talented linguist even by the standards of the famously polylingual Dutch. The most popular Dutch politician, he served as a junior officer at the Dutch embassy in Moscow and has worked at the European Commision before, serving on the private staff of a previous Dutch commissioner during the 1990s #facebook #United States #India #Japan #Brazil #France #Russia #Argentina #Latin America #Netherlands #Mexico #european

Child abuse revelations divide "most shameful town in Britain"

ROTHERHAM England (Reuters) - Swapping cigarettes and chewing gum, the teenage girls outside Rotherham's Centenary Indoor Market are not engrossed in the conversations students should be having on the first day of term. Instead of timetables and summer gossip, theirs is a new school year dominated by revelations that as many as 1,400 children in this northern English town were sexually abused by gangs of predominantly Asian men over a 16-year period. #facebook #United States #Business #Japan #Arabic #Argentina #Latin America #Mexico #british #opinion

Israel raises alarm over Islamist militants on its frontiers

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel's frontier with Syria, where militants have kidnapped 45 U.N. peacekeepers, has become a magnet for Islamist activity and Israel itself is now a target, the defence minister and security analysts said on Tuesday. The Nusra Front, an al-Qaeda-linked group fighting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, has established a major presence in the region, analysts said, and is poised to carry out attacks across the barren borderlands where Syria, Israel and Jordan converge #facebook #Japan #Brazil #Arabic #Middle East #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico

Girl who fatally shot Arizona gun instructor said weapon was too powerful

PHOENIX (Reuters) - A 9-year-old girl who fatally shot a gun range instructor with an Uzi submachine gun last week told her mother immediately afterward that the weapon was too much for her to handle and had hurt her shoulder, said a sheriff's report released on Tuesday. The girl's family also did not realize right away that the instructor, 39-year-old Charles Vacca, had been struck by a round from the gun, the Mohave County Sheriff's Office report said. Vacca had been showing the girl how to fire an Uzi at the Arizona Last Stop gun range in remote White Hills last week when the recoil caused her to lose control of the high-powered weapon, the sheriff's office has said. #India #Business #France #Russia #markets #Italy #Argentina #Mexico
