Ukraine's Mariupol holds its breath for next rebel move

MARIUPOL, Ukraine (Reuters) - Scanning the sky for incoming artillery fire has become a force of habit for Ukrainian beetroot-seller Svetlana Kumurzhi, who dived under her wooden stall in government-held Mariupol when shells rained down a month ago. While a fragile two-week-old ceasefire shows signs of holding, Kiev says pro-Russian separatists are using the truce to regroup their forces, especially around Mariupol, a strategically important port city in Ukraine's southeast. Control of the industrial hub would help the rebels form a corridor to the Crimea peninsula which Russia annexed from Ukraine last year. #Business #Economy #facebook #Brazil #Arabic #markets #Argentina #Entertainment #author #opinion

Mali signs peace deal, rebels want more time for consultation

ALGIERS (Reuters) - Mali signed a preliminary peace deal on Sunday to end fighting with northern separatist fighters, but the Tuareg-led rebels asked for more time for consultations before signing the agreement. The United Nations-brokered deal seeks to tackle decades of uprisings and instability in northern Mali, where Western and regional powers worry Islamist militants could return two years after French military intervention drove them out. "This accord is not intended to immediately resolve all the problems of a deep, multifaceted, cyclical crisis. #Business #facebook #Brazil #Technology #France #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #opinion #political

Egypt court ruling opens way for possible election delay

CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt's Supreme Constitutional Court ruled on Sunday that an article in an election-related law was unconstitutional, paving the way for a possible delay in a long-awaited March-April parliamentary poll. Egypt has been without a parliament since June 2012, when a court dissolved the democratically elected main chamber, reversing a major accomplishment of the 2011 uprising that toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak. #Business #India #China #Japan #Brazil #Technology #France #Investment #Russia #markets #Entertainment #Mexico

Egypt courts list Hamas as terrorist group, give Brotherhood leader life

CAIRO (Reuters) - An Egyptian court listed the Palestinian group Hamas as a terrorist organisation, judicial sources said on Saturday, part of a sustained crackdown on Islamists in the most populous Arab state. In a separate case earlier in the day, a court sentenced the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood's top leader Mohamed Badie to life in prison while other members received the death penalty. Hamas is an offshoot of the Brotherhood, which the authorities have also declared a terrorist group in Egypt and have repressed systematically since the army ousted one of its leaders, Mohamed Mursi, from the presidency in 2013 #Business #India #China #Egypt #Brazil #Technology #France #Investment #Argentina #Latin America #author #opinion
