Kerry tries to reassure Iran's Gulf rivals on nuclear talks

RIYADH (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry reassured Gulf Arab states on Thursday that Washington was not seeking a "grand bargain" with Iran, in reference to wider political and security cooperation, and said a nuclear deal with Tehran would be in Gulf interests. The United State's Gulf allies, particularly the Sunni Muslim kingdom of Saudi Arabia, are concerned that Shi'ite Muslim Iran will be left empowered by a mooted agreement to end years of dispute over its nuclear ambitions. #Business #India #China #Brazil #Arabic #Russia #markets #United Kingdom #Latin America #Entertainment #author

Afghan men don burqas, take to the streets for women's rights

KABUL (Reuters) - A group of Afghan men marched through the capital, Kabul, on Thursday to draw attention to women's rights by donning head-to-toe burqas that for many people worldwide have come to symbolise the suppression of women. The hardline Taliban forced women to wear burqas in public during their rule in the 1990s and concern is growing in Afghanistan and among its allies that gains for women made since the 2001 U.S.-led ouster of the Taliban are at risk. The men marched under a leaden sky, with the bright blue burqas falling over their heads down to muddy sneakers and boots #United States #India #China #Japan #Brazil #Technology #Italy #Argentina #Mexico #opinion
