Kazakh leader sails to re-election with stability mantra| Reuters

ASTANA (Reuters) - Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev was set to renew his 26-year grip on power on Sunday, offering the multi-ethnic Central Asian state economic and social stability in return for what rights groups call systematic suppression of opposition. Nazarbayev, 74, officially titled "Leader of the Nation", called presidential elections more than a year early in a move that could quash any speculation about a successor #Business #United States #China #Technology #France #Middle East #science #Argentina #Entertainment #Ukraine #opinion #lifestyle

LONDON (Reuters) - Ukrainian-born billionaire Len Blavatnik has become Britain's wealthiest man, a "rich list" published annually by The Sunday Times newspaper showed on Sunday, but Queen Elizabeth slipped down the rankings despite her net worth growing. Boosted largely by rising stock markets, the newspaper said the super-rich had doubled their collective wealth since the 2009 economic crisis and that the wealthiest 1,000 people based in Britain were now worth 547 billion pounds ($830.67 billion), up from 258 billion in 2009, an increase of 112 percent. #Politics #Business #India #Technology #Middle East #science #markets #Africa #Italy #Argentina #Mexico #opinion

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel will take part as an observer in a major nuclear non-proliferation conference that opens at the United Nations on Monday, ending a 20-year absence in hope of fostering dialogue with Arab states, a senior Israeli official said. Assumed to have the Middle East's sole nuclear arsenal, and having never joined the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, Israel has stayed away from gatherings of NPT signatories since 1995 in protest at resolutions it regarded as biased against it #India #Technology #France #Israel #Africa #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #opinion

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

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.

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
