Nazi hunters seek German probe of WW2 death squad suspects

BERLIN (Reuters) The Simon Wiesenthal Center has sent the German government a list of 80 people it believes murdered Jews while serving in Nazi death squads in World War Two and who may be still alive, the head of the Israel office of the organisation said. The push for an investigation into members of Einsatzgruppen, or death squads, was triggered by a landmark conviction in 2011 of John Demjanjuk, a guard at the Sobibor death camp, said the Wiesenthal Center's Efraim Zuroff. #facebook #Business #Technology #France #Israel #Mexico #german #article

Eyeing 2015 vote, British PM Cameron pledges 7 billion pounds in tax cuts

BIRMINGHAM England (Reuters) Prime Minister David Cameron promised to hand almost half the British population a tax cut if reelected next year, a pledge he hopes will win over millions of voters and refocus debate away from a schism inside his party over Europe. The promise, which will cost over 7 billion pounds (11.35 billion US dollar) to fund, was a calculated gambit to try to shift the narrative from one which has focused on the damage the antiEU UK Independence Party (UKIP) is doing to Cameron's reelection hopes by siphoning off voters and lawmakers. #facebook #Politics #United States #Business #United Kingdom #opinion #conservative #article

Indonesia president manages hopes as hostile parliament convenes

JAKARTA (Reuters) Incoming Indonesian president Joko Widodo is trying to manage the expectations of his supporters and investors as an oppositiondominated parliament likely to obstruct his ambitious reform programme convenes on Wednesday. Widodo, the popular former governor of the capital, Jakarta, narrowly won an election in July, becoming the first businessman to become president of Southeast Asia's biggest economy, which had previously always been led by members of political elites. Widodo's simple, direct approach and success in cutting red tape appealed to ordinary voters and investors who welcomed his victory by pushing the stock market .JKSE up to a record high. #facebook #United States #India #Business #Arabic #Russia #markets #United Kingdom #Latin America

Syria raids show Saudi, UAE ambition to extend regional authority

DUBAI/RIYADH (Reuters) The decision by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to join air strikes in Syria reflects an increasingly muscular foreign policy by the Gulf Arab heavyweights that has already started to reshape the balance of power in the Middle East. With Egypt, Syria and Iraq where the Arab world's armed might has usually rested all now immersed in civil wars or internal political turmoil, the emergence of Gulf states as military players asserting an unremitting hostility to Islamists could alter the region's political equation. While neither country appears likely to move towards the habitual use of military power to settle disputes or impose interests, the strikes in Syria demonstrated a growing comfort with the use of hard power alongside diplomacy. #United States #India #China #Business #Technology #markets #Italy #Argentina #Mexico

Divided Chinese eye Hong Kong protests with admiration, anger

HONG KONG (Reuters) For some mainland Chinese in Hong Kong, the sight of thousands of people on the streets protesting for greater democracy is an alien one that has prompted comparisons with the relative lack of political freedom back home. Others are less impressed, and see the mass show of defiance as a dangerous tactic that has shut down large parts of the city and raised the risk of serious confrontation with Hong Kong police. "For the first time in my life I feel close to politics," said a Chinese tourist from Beijing who gave only her surname, Yu #United States #Obama #China #Business #Japan #Brazil #Arabic #Government #chinese

Gritty streets of Mong Kok a potential Hong Kong flashpoint

HONG KONG (Reuters) The dark alleyways and triadrun bars of Mong Kok are a long way from the glittering towers of Hong Kong island, the hub of prodemocracy protests that have brought tens of thousands of people on to the streets over the last five days and nights.
