Philippines calls on ASEAN to urge China to halt land reclamation| Reuters

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - The Philippines called on its Southeast Asian neighbours to unite in urging China to halt reclamation of land in the South China Sea, but the call failed to raise widespread support ahead of a regional summit. China claims 90 percent of the South China Sea, which is believed to be rich in oil and gas. Its claims overlap with those of Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam and Taiwan. #Economy #Sports #United States #Technology #France #Middle East #science #Taiwan #Entertainment #lifestyle

Ukraine's ceasefire under pressure as one more serviceman killed | Reuters

KIEV (Reuters) - A fragile ceasefire between Ukrainian government forces and pro-Russian separatists came under renewed pressure on Sunday with the Ukrainian military reporting a serviceman had been killed and seven others wounded in rebel attacks. The casualties, which follow the death on Saturday of another serviceman in shelling in the south east, occurred as the Ukrainian military and the rebels accused each other of violating a peace deal signed in Minsk, Belarus, in February. The latest violence has revived concerns that the deal, brokered by the leaders of Ukraine, Russia, Germany and France, could collapse, even though international monitors say violations were relatively limited #United States #Technology #Middle East #Russia #Africa #Argentina #Latin America #Entertainment #Ukraine #opinion

Pockets of violence erupt in Baltimore after march to protest black man's death| Reuters

BALTIMORE (Reuters) - Thousands of people marched through downtown Baltimore on Saturday to protest the unexplained death of a black man in police custody but the demonstrations turned violent when some protesters threw metal objects at officers and broke windows. Saturday's protests began peacefully, with at least 2,000 demonstrators marching to City Hall for a rally, the biggest since 25-year-old Freddie Gray died six days ago, a week after his arrest. But later, as darkness fell, some protesters fanned out across the city and damaged stores and cars #Business #Sports #United States #Technology #Middle East #science #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #opinion #lifestyle
