Syrian government not serious about political solution - rebel leader | Reuters

BEIRUT Intensifying military offensives show the Syrian government and its allies are not serious about finding a political solution to the five-year-old conflict, the new leader of a major rebel group said on Friday. In his first interview since becoming leader of Syrian insurgent group Jaish al-Islam after the former chief was killed in December, Issam Buwaydani said it was clear "the regime and its allies are not convinced of a political solution." "The biggest proof is that they continue to bomb Syrian cities and impose sieges on hundreds of thousands of unarmed civilians," Buwaydani said in the interview with opposition activist news website Syrian Revolution Network. United Nations-sponsored Syrian peace talks stalled this week after the opposition delegation objected to intensified Syrian government offensives supported by Iranian allies and heavy Russian air strikes. #Business #Technology #Russia #Argentina #opinion #article

Heavy clashes in southeast Libya, 30 killed | Reuters

Two days of clashes in southeastern Libya between a local armed faction and Sudanese fighters have left more than 30 people dead, a local mayor said on Friday. The commander of the Libyan Subul Assalam faction, Abdurrahman Hashim, said the Sudanese fighters were rebels from Sudan's Darfur region who had moved into the area around the town of Kufra following the uprising that toppled Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. He said his group was retaliating for armed robberies and attempted attacks on Kufra, in Libya's desert south-east which shares a border with northwestern Sudan #Africa #Security #Argentina #United Kingdom #Entertainment #opinion #article

Sanders supporters banned from Tinder after campaigning on dating app | Reuters

Stumping for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Tinder is getting some women banned from the online dating app after sending campaign messages to prospective matches. Two women - one from Iowa and the other from New Jersey - confirmed to Reuters on Friday that they received notices from Tinder in the previous 24 hours that their accounts were locked because they had been reported too many times for peppering men on the site with messages promoting Sanders' candidacy. #United States #Business #Middle East #Argentina #United Kingdom #Entertainment #Election

Delta CEO-designate - Zika has not impacted flight bookings | Reuters

The rapidly spreading Zika virus has not impacted bookings on Delta Air Lines Inc ( DAL.N ) to Latin America and the Caribbean, its president and CEO-designate said on Thursday, but added that customers' future plans were tough to predict. "Candidly, it would be hard to see much change," given that Delta's unit revenue to Brazil has already fallen sharply because of the country's economic slowdown, said Ed Bastian, set to become the carrier's new chief executive in May. #Brazil #markets #Argentina #Latin America #opinion

Churches offer sanctuary as U.N. criticises Australian asylum policy | Reuters

SYDNEY The United Nations on Thursday strongly criticised an Australian court ruling that paves the way for the deportation of dozens of infants born to asylum seekers as church leaders offered sanctuary to refugees at risk of abuse if they were returned to a South Pacific island detention centre. The High Court on Wednesday rejected a legal test case brought by an unidentified Bangladeshi woman that challenged Australia's right to deport detained asylum seekers to Nauru, about 3,000 km (1,800 miles) northeast of Australia. Some 267 people who were brought from Nauru to Australia for medical treatment, including up to 80 children, are now at risk of being returned to the detention centre that houses around 500 people #United States #India #Brazil #Technology #Argentina #Christianity #article
