Ten years on, tsunami survivors in Indonesia hope to move on

BANDA ACEH, Indonesia (Reuters) - A decade after a 10-metre (32-foot) tsunami washed away two of her three children, her home and business, Salawati is finally getting her life back on track in Indonesia's western-most Banda Aceh province. The 47 year old survivor of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, which killed 226,000 people around the region, is one of thousands who have gradually rebuilt their livelihoods from scratch with the help of billions of dollars in aid. "Our feelings are not like 10 years ago when I would feel sad if I talked about my tsunami experience," Salawti told Reuters in her hometown of Merduati on the island of Sumatra ahead of the 10th anniversary of the disaster. #Business #United States #India #China #Pakistan #France #Arabic #markets #United Kingdom #Mexico #author #opinion

Rafael Hui, 66, who headed Hong Kong's civil service from 2005 to 2007, was found guilty of three counts of misconduct in public office and two counts of conspiracy to commit misconduct. #Business #India #China #Pakistan #Brazil #Technology #France #Middle East #Russia #markets #United Kingdom #Latin America

Iran honours nuclear deal with powers, IAEA report shows

VIENNA (Reuters) - Iran has continued to meet commitments under an interim nuclear agreement with six world powers, a confidential U.N. agency report showed, though Tehran temporarily halted conversion work that makes higher-grade uranium less suitable for bombs. The monthly update by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), seen by Reuters, said Iran was not enriching uranium above a fissile concentration of 5 percent, far below the 90 percent level needed for atomic arms #facebook #United States #India #China #Pakistan #France #Russia #Argentina #Mexico

Russian prosecutors want 10 years in jail for Kremlin foe Navalny

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian prosecutors said on Friday Kremlin foe Alexei Navalny should be imprisoned for 10 years for stealing 30 million roubles ($500,000) in a case dismissed by critics of President Vladimir Putin as part of his campaign to stifle dissent. Navalny, who led mass protests against Putin three years ago, denies guilt, as does the other defendant in the case, his brother Oleg, for whom the prosecution is seeking eight years in jail.

Cuba's Raul Castro steps out of brother's shadow with U.S. deal, support surges

HAVANA (Reuters) - Stepping out of his legendary brother's shadow, President Raul Castro has scored a diplomatic triumph and a surge in popular support with the deal that ends decades of open hostility with the United States. For many Cubans, the restoration of diplomatic relations and President Barack Obama's promise to dismantle economic sanctions against the communist-run island have raised hopes of a more prosperous future. Just as important, in exchange for one American prisoner and dozens of little-known Cubans, Castro won the freedom of three Cuban spies widely exalted at home as heroes who were wrongly imprisoned in the United States for 16 years #United States #India #China #Pakistan #Brazil #France #Russia #Freedom #United Kingdom #Latin America #author
