Ukraine rebel commander says will not pull out of Donetsk

DONETSK Ukraine (Reuters) - An enigmatic Russian leading separatist rebels in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk made a rare appearance in public on Thursday to say he would not abandon the city though he defended his decision to pull out of the stronghold of Slaviansk. Igor Girkin, a Muscovite who has the nom de guerre of Igor Strelkov, has been criticised by some other rebel commanders for withdrawing from Slaviansk last weekend and allowing government forces to savour a major victory #facebook #Politics #Japan #Technology #Russia #markets #Argentina #Mexico #Ukraine #opinion #city

Singapore says citizens participate in Syria conflict

SINGAPORE (Reuters) - A handful of Singaporean citizens have gone to Syria to participate in the conflict there, raising concern about a terrorist threat in the city-state, a senior government official was quoted by a state-owned TV network as saying.

Iraq's Maliki rejects pressure to give up premiership

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki refused on Friday to give up his quest for a third term in power, defying a chorus of critics demanding his replacement as the country faces an existential threat from Islamist insurgents. Maliki has come under mounting pressure since militants of the group now calling itself the Islamic State rampaged through swathes of the country last month and declared a mediaeval-style caliphate on land they have captured in Iraq and neighbouring Syria. "I will never give up my candidacy for the post of prime minister," Maliki said in a statement read out on state television by an announcer #United States #Army #Government #Muslim #FACE #city #town #Sunni #iraqi #minister-nuri

Mass Hong Kong protest looms as democracy push gathers steam

HONG KONG (Reuters) - Hong Kong is bracing for its largest protest in more than a decade after nearly 800,000 voted for full democracy in an unofficial referendum, a move likely to stoke anti-China sentiment in the former British colony. The annual July 1 rally, marking the day the territory returned to China in 1997, will focus on pressuring Beijing's Communist Party leaders for full electoral freedom, organisers said, and could draw the largest turnout since 2003, when half a million people demonstrated against proposed anti-subversion laws which were later scrapped. Several groups have indicated they will stage overnight vigils after the march in a possible prelude to a planned campaign to shut down the city's financial district #facebook #India #China #Technology #France #Russia #Italy #Mexico #city

As euphoria fades, Mosul wonders what ISIL rule will bring

BASHIQA/MOSUL Iraq (Reuters) - Two weeks after Sunni insurgents overran northern Iraq's biggest city Mosul, shrines lie smashed, non-Sunnis have fled and armed men have warned women not to walk in the streets unescorted. Residents who welcomed the expulsion of the Shi'ite-led government's soldiers and police from the mostly Sunni city are now asking what life will bring under the al Qaeda offshoot calling the shots, the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). #Japan #Brazil #Technology #France #Arabic #markets #Latin America #Mexico #city
