Russia throws rights accusations back at U.S. with Ferguson unrest

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia pointed on Wednesday to rioting in Ferguson and protests across the United States as evidence that its detractors in Washington were hypocrites and in no position to lecture Moscow on human rights. Issuing two statements on the unrest in just one day, the Russian Foreign Ministry said the United States should "focus on large-scale domestic problems with safeguarding human rights" rather than preach to others. #Business #facebook #United States #China #Japan #Technology #France #Middle East #Italy #Argentina #Latin America #Mexico

Egyptian inquiry into political violence seeks changes to protest law

CAIRO (Reuters) - An Egyptian committee investigating political violence made a rare break on Wednesday with judicial support for heavy-handed state tactics, recommending the government should amend a law restricting protest. The government-ordered inquiry is investigating acts of violence after the army toppled President Mohamed Mursi in July 2013 and cracked down on his Muslim Brotherhood supporters. Its report echoed the findings of a government-appointed panel in March, blaming much of the violence at protest sites on the Brotherhood - which maintains it espouses only peaceful methods - while placing some responsibility on the police for disproportionate use of force. #Business #facebook #Brazil #France #Russia #Government #Argentina #Latin America #Mexico
