Malaysia declares Aug 22 national day of mourning for MH17 victims

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Malaysia on Thursday declared a national day of mourning on August 22, when 16 bodies from Malaysia Airlines ( MASM.KL ) Flight MH17, downed over eastern Ukraine last month, are set to arrive from the Netherlands. The government said it would decide next week if the day will also be a public holiday, signalling the closure of public offices and financial markets. Twenty-four of the 43 Malaysians on the flight have been identified by Dutch investigators almost a month after the jetliner carrying 298 people was downed on July 17, suspected to have been hit by a surface-to-air missile #India #France #Middle East #Russia #Italy #Netherlands #Mexico #Flight

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
