Iraqis fleeing Mosul to Syria, up to 50,000 anticipated - UNHCR | Reuters

GENEVA More than 4,200 Iraqis from Mosul fled to Syria in May, the United Nations refugee agency said on Friday, adding it is gearing up for up to 50,000 people to leave the Islamic State-held city and cross the border. Driving the exodus appear to be reports that IS militants have stepped up executions of men and boys in Falluja since Iraqi government forces launched an offensive to re-take the city, where people are also dying of starvation, the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said. #India #Business #Syria #Middle East #Russia #Argentina #Foreign policy

BOGOTA The Colombian Marxist rebel group, the National Liberation Army, is responsible for the disappearance of three journalists who disappeared in recent days near the border with Venezuela, Colombia's defence minister said on Thursday. The reporters vanished while working in El Tarra municipality in Norte de Santander, where the group, known as the ELN, earns money from illegal cocaine production in the lawless region about 400 km (250 miles) north of Bogota. The government did not classify the disappearances as kidnappings, but the group has held hundreds captive during more than 50 years of war #United States #Economy #Business #Europe #Argentina #kidnapping #article

Al Qaeda still reaping oil profits in Yemen despite battlefield reverses | Reuters

DUBAI/LONDON/CAIRO Al Qaeda may have been pushed out of the enclave it carved out in Yemen as the country descended into civil war, but the militants are still entrenched in other parts of the country's south, reaping profits from smuggled fuel. Scores of militants were killed in a Gulf Arab-backed offensive on Al Qaeda's de facto capital of Mukalla, Yemen's third largest seaport, but hundreds fled to neighbouring Shabwa province and beyond. A month later, al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) is thriving by joining diverse armed groups in taxing fuel delivered illicitly to remote beaches along the Arabian Sea coast, security, tribal and shipping sources say #Business #France #Argentina #United Kingdom #Entertainment #Foreign policy #article

Egyptian crash investigator says French vessel joining black box search | Reuters

CAIRO Egypt's air accidents chief said on Thursday that a vessel provided by French company ALSEAMAR, which specializes in marine wreckage searches, will join within hours the hunt for the black boxes from crashed EgyptAir flight MS804. A week after the Airbus A320 crashed into the Mediterranean with 66 people on board, including 30 Egyptians and 15 from France, investigators have no clear picture of its final moments. Search teams are working against the clock to recover the two black box flight recorders that will offer vital clues to investigators, because the signals that help locate them in deep water cease transmitting after about 30 days. #Business #markets #Argentina #Entertainment #Foreign policy #article

Netanyahu signs coalition deal, names far-right Lieberman defence chief | Reuters

JERUSALEM Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his choice for defence minister, ultranationalist Avigdor Lieberman, signed a coalition agreement on Wednesday and issued assurances that the most right wing government in Israel's history would act responsibly. Once Lieberman is sworn in, Netanyahu will have a government of 66 legislators, widening his current one-seat majority in the 120-member parliament, a goal the Israeli leader has said he has sought since winning a fourth term last year. Lieberman's return to office - he was previously foreign minister - has raised questions at home and abroad given his past criticism of Israel's Arab minority, U.S.-sponsored peace talks with Palestinians and regional powers Egypt and Turkey. #Politics #Economy #India #Middle East #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom
