Yemen president calls for settlement on third day of clashes

SANAA (Reuters) Yemeni President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi called on Saturday for a U.N.brokered political settlement with Shi'ite rebels as some of the worst violence seen in the capital for years raged for a third day. The fighting, which intensified on Thursday after weeks of protests and clashes, appeared to be the biggest challenge yet to a U.N.backed transition to democracy launched after veteran ruler Ali Abdullah Saleh stepped down in 2012. #facebook #United States #Business #Japan #France #Argentina #United Kingdom #opinion

Brown says London must keep promise to Scotland as political truce ends

EDINBURGH/LONDON (Reuters) Former prime minister Gordon Brown urged British leaders on Saturday to keep their promise to grant further powers to Scotland after it voted to remain in the United Kingdom, as a consensus between London's main parties evaporated. All the three biggest parties had promised to rapidly expand Scotland's autonomy in a lastminute push to shore up support for the union just days before Thursday's referendum, which came down 5545 against independence. But within hours of the result, Britain's Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron had reshuffled the cards by promising not only to fulfil the pledge to Scotland but also to make it part of an overhaul of the balance of powers across the rest of the United Kingdom, within the same timeframe of a few months #facebook #China #Business #Japan #Brazil #Technology #France #Russia #Argentina #United Kingdom #Mexico #british
