Syrian rebel groups in Aleppo enter alliance - monitoring group

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Rebel groups fighting in Syria's northern Aleppo province have agreed to form an alliance, a group monitoring the country's civil war said on Thursday. A lack of unity among Syria's opposition groups has undermined the revolt against President Bashar al-Assad and made foreign powers wary of intervening in a conflict now in its fourth year. Many of the strongest factions are hardline Islamists such as Islamic State and the Nusra Front, al Qaeda's affiliate in Syria, who have clashed with one another and with more secular rebel groups #United States #India #Japan #Syria #Brazil #Middle East #Argentina #United Kingdom #author

Arsonist sets fire to Swedish mosque, injuring five - police

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - An arsonist set fire to a mosque in the Swedish town of Eskilstuna on Thursday, injuring five people, police said, an incident which comes amid an intense debate over immigration. The immigration debate has pitted the far right, which wants to cut the number of asylum seekers allowed into Sweden by 90 percent, against mainstream parties intent on preserving the Nordic country's liberal policy. Between 15 and 20 people were in the mosque, located in the ground floor of a building in a mainly residential area, when the fire erupted. #India #China #Brazil #France #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #opinion

UK's Queen Elizabeth urges reconciliation in post-referendum Scotland

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's Queen Elizabeth used her annual Christmas Day broadcast on Thursday to advocate reconciliation, especially in Scotland where an unsuccessful independence referendum earlier this year polarised public opinion. Channelling the spirit of a brief World War One Christmas truce between British and German soldiers 100 years ago, the 88-year-old monarch held the historic moment out as an example of how irreconcilable differences can sometimes be bridged. "Of course, reconciliation takes different forms. #Business #facebook #United States #India #Brazil #France #Arabic #Middle East #markets #United Kingdom #Mexico

Thousands pray at Indonesian mosque that survived, 10 yrs after tsunami

BANDA ACEH, Indonesia (Reuters) - Thousands of Indonesians gathered on Thursday to pray at a mosque that was one of the few buildings left standing in Banda Aceh, the city flattened by the Boxing Day tsunami that killed at least 226,000 people 10 years ago. Pictures of the 135-year-old mosque left isolated in a plain of desolation after almost everything around it was wiped away were among the most memorable from the disaster, caused by a freak wave triggered by a 9.1-magnitude earthquake off the coast of Indonesia's Sumatra island in 2004. #facebook #United States #Japan #Brazil #Arabic #markets #Italy #Latin America #Christmas #author #opinion
