Warsaw says Russian ban on Polish produce is revenge for EU sanctions

MOSCOW/WARSAW (Reuters) - Russia announced a ban on most fruit and vegetable imports from Poland on Wednesday and said it could extend it to the entire EU, a move Warsaw called Kremlin retaliation for new Western sanctions over Ukraine imposed on Russia a day earlier. Moscow, which buys more than 2 billion euros worth of EU fruit and vegetables a year making it by far the biggest export market for the produce, said the ban was for sanitary reasons and denied a link to the sanctions. Moscow has frequently been accused in the past of using food safety inspections to restrict trade from countries with which it has political disputes. #facebook #United States #China #Business #France #Arabic #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Polish

Iraqi militias execute, hang 15 people - police

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Shi'ite militia forces executed 15 Sunni Muslims and then hung them by electricity poles in a public square in a town northeast of Baghdad on Wednesday, police said. A police officer at the scene in Baquba, a mixed Sunni and Shi'ite town 65 km (40 miles) from Baghdad, said he believed the action was designed to keep Sunnis from supporting the Islamic State, an al-Qaeda offshoot which seized swathes of land in an advance through northern Iraq last month #facebook #Japan #Brazil #Technology #France #Arabic #Italy #United Kingdom #Latin America #Entertainment #opinion
