Russia's new military doctrine names NATO as key risk

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a new military doctrine, naming NATO expansion among key external risks, the Kremlin said on Friday, days after Ukraine made fresh steps to join the Atlantic military alliance. Moscow's previous military doctrine, signed by Putin in 2010, also identified NATO expansion as a top risk to Russia, but the stakes have risen sharply over the past year. Russia said this week NATO was turning Ukraine into a "frontline of confrontation" and threatened to sever remaining ties if Ukraine's hopes of joining NATO were realised. #Business #United States #Japan #Brazil #Technology #France #Middle East #Latin America #Mexico #author

Iran expands "smart" Internet censorship

DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran is to expand what it calls "smart filtering" of the Internet, a policy of censoring undesirable content on websites without banning them completely, as it used to, the government said on Friday. The Islamic Republic has some of the strictest controls on Internet access in the world, but its blocks on U.S.-based social media such as Facebook ( FB.O ), Twitter ( TWTR.N ) and YouTube ( GOOGL.O ) are routinely bypassed by tech-savvy Iranians using virtual private networks (VPNs) #Business #facebook #United States #Brazil #Russia #United Kingdom #Mexico #opinion

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
