Russia, facing widespread criticism, denies bombing civilians in Syria | Reuters

MUNICH France led international criticism of Russia on Saturday for bombing civilians in Syria, a charge Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev rejected as major powers bickered openly just a day after they agreed a pause in combat in Syria. The differences between the stakeholders in a Syria settlement highlighted their lingering divisions despite Friday's "cessation of hostilities" agreement, which was not signed by any of the warring parties on the ground - government forces and the opposition - and does not take effect for a week #Syria #Pakistan #Middle East #Russia #Latin America #crisis

North Korea to halt search for Japanese abductees - KCNA | Reuters

TOKYO North Korea has declared void an agreement to reopen a probe into the fate of abducted Japanese citizens after Japan imposed sanctions in the wake of Pyongyang's rocket launch, according to North Korea's official KCNA news agency. North Korea planned to disband a committee set up in 2014 to look into the whereabouts of Japanese abductees, KCNA said, adding that Japan's "provocative acts of hostility" toward North Korea would ensure further countermeasures. "The Abe regime has to hold full responsibility for causing such a grave consequence," it said. #India #Middle East #science #markets #Latin America #article
