"Highway of Heroes" bears slain Canadian soldier home

HAMILTON Ontario (Reuters) - The body of a Canadian soldier shot dead while guarding the country's war memorial in Ottawa returned to his hometown on Friday, after thousands of his countrymen paid tribute along the nation's "Highway of Heroes." Crowds of people lined much of the roughly 500-km (310-mile) route along Lake Ontario while a black hearse accompanied by dozens of police vehicles bore the slain soldier, Corporal Nathan Cirillo, 24, back to Hamilton, Ontario. Police said a home-grown radical, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, killed Cirillo on Wednesday before running into the Parliament building where he was shot dead near where Prime Minister Stephen Harper was meeting with lawmakers #Business #facebook #China #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #markets #Italy #Argentina #Latin America #opinion

NYC police say hatchet attack by Islam convert was terrorism

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The hatchet-wielding man who wounded two New York City police officers, one of them critically, was a self-radicalized convert to Islam who is believed to have acted alone in what law enforcement officials on Friday called a terrorist attack. The suspect, Zale Thompson, who was shot dead by two other officers on Thursday afternoon on a street in the borough of Queens, had made anti-Western postings on social media and visited websites associated with several radical Islamic groups, police said at a news conference. #India #Islam #Brazil #Technology #Arabic #Russia #markets #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #opinion

Libyan army claims control of large Islamist camp in Benghazi

BENGHAZI Libya (Reuters) - Libya's army and its allies have taken control of one of the largest camps of Islamist forces in the eastern city of Benghazi, military officials said on Friday. Gaining control of the camp, the first to be set up by rebels who helped topple Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, would mark further significant progress for the army after taking Benghazi's airport. Libya is divided between rival tribes and political factions with two governments vying for legitimacy since an armed group from the western city of Misrata seized Tripoli in August, forcing the internationally-recognized Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni to move to the east. #facebook #India #Japan #Brazil #Arabic #Army #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #opinion

As Ebola hits, New Yorkers maintain wary calm

NEW YORK (Reuters) - News of New York's first case of Ebola was met with worry and even anger on Friday, but for this city of eight million residents, seasoned by everything from terror attacks to superstorms, there was little sign of panic. Dr. Craig Spencer, 33, who treated Ebola patients in West Africa, was moved with elaborate precautions from his Harlem apartment to Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan with a fever and tested positive for Ebola on Thursday, sparking concern about the spread of the disease in the country's most populous city #facebook #India #China #Brazil #Technology #Arabic #Argentina #United Kingdom #Mexico #city

As Cuban economy stagnates, economists press for deeper reforms

HAVANA (Reuters) - Some of Cuba's best-known economists are openly questioning the very core of the Soviet-style command economy and saying market reforms under way are too modest to boost weak growth. Emboldened by freer debate in the country, they are increasingly vocal in criticizing rigid instructions coming down from the top and the uneven management of policies across the economy, from banking to agriculture. Their influence on government policy-makers is difficult to gauge due to the secretive nature of the ruling Communist Party, but they clearly have been given leeway to call for changes. #Economy #facebook #Japan #Technology #Arabic #Middle East #Argentina #Mexico #opinion
