Pakistan widows, "second" wives flee fighting but are denied aid

BANNU Pakistan (Reuters) - Thousands of women displaced by fighting in Pakistan are struggling to get food and other aid because they lack identity cards and conservative Muslim elders have forbidden them from going to distribution centres. The women are among nearly a million people who registered for aid after the army began an offensive against the Pakistani Taliban in North Waziristan, a mountainous region on the Afghan border. The army ordered most civilians to leave before the offensive began in June #facebook #Business #Brazil #Technology #France #Arabic #Middle East #Entertainment #Mexico #opinion

Nine months on, Philippines plans $3.9-billion effort to relocate typhoon Haiyan victims Haiyan victims

MANILA (Reuters) - The Philippines will spend 170 billion pesos ($3.89 billion) to rehouse some 200,000 families displaced by last year's super typhoon Haiyan that killed 6,100 people, the government said in a masterplan released on Friday. It has taken a startling nine months to hammer out the plan because crippling bureaucracy entailed lengthy vetting, say government consultants, and sparse technical data on geological hazards and land use plans held up relocation decisions. Thousands of displaced families remain in makeshift tents or substandard temporary shelter areas, but all-out reconstruction will begin soon after President Benigno Aquino approves the plan, although it is not clear when this will happen. #India #China #Business #Technology #Middle East #Government #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #President #Entertainment #opinion

Iraqi foreign minister blames Maliki for Islamist insurgency

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and his security officials are to blame for the rise of Sunni Muslim insurgents who have seized parts of Iraq, the country's foreign minister said. The comments by Hoshiyar Zebari, a Kurd, are likely to worsen relations between Maliki's Shi'ite Muslim-led government and the Kurds, complicating efforts to form a power-sharing government capable of countering Islamic State militants #facebook #India #Technology #Arabic #Middle East #Argentina #United Kingdom #Entertainment #Mexico
