Pakistan widows, "second" wives flee fighting but are denied aid

BANNU Pakistan (Reuters) - Thousands of women displaced by fighting in Pakistan are struggling to get food and other aid because they lack identity cards and conservative Muslim elders have forbidden them from going to distribution centres. The women are among nearly a million people who registered for aid after the army began an offensive against the Pakistani Taliban in North Waziristan, a mountainous region on the Afghan border. The army ordered most civilians to leave before the offensive began in June #facebook #Business #Brazil #Technology #France #Arabic #Middle East #Entertainment #Mexico #opinion

Putin wants monasteries, church rebuilt inside Kremlin

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin has called for two monasteries and a church that were demolished during Soviet times to be rebuilt in the Kremlin, the largest overhaul of the site's architectural landscape in nearly a century. Putin has cultivated strong ties with Patriarch Kirill, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, adopting more conservative policies and prompting some critics to suggest the line separating state and church has become blurred. #United States #Business #Japan #Technology #Arabic #Russia #markets #Italy #Argentina #Latin America #Entertainment #Mexico

Iraqi foreign minister blames Maliki for Islamist insurgency

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and his security officials are to blame for the rise of Sunni Muslim insurgents who have seized parts of Iraq, the country's foreign minister said.
