U.N. to hold new Libya talks, gunmen kidnap deputy foreign minister

BENGHAZI/TRIPOLI (Reuters) - A new round of talks between rival Libyan factions will take place in Geneva on Monday, the United Nations said, even as gunmen kidnapped the deputy foreign minister of the recognised government. Nearly four years after a NATO-backed revolt ousted Muammar Gaddafi, Libya is in turmoil with two rival governments and two parliaments backed by armed factions who Western governments fear may drag the country into civil war. The internationally-recognised government of Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni and the elected House of Representatives have worked out of the east after one faction, Libya Dawn, took over Tripoli in the summer, set up its own government and reinstated the old parliament known as the GNC #Politics #United States #Brazil #France #climate change #United Kingdom #Latin America #opinion

Three protesters killed on anniversary of Egypt uprising as tension grows

CAIRO (Reuters) - Three people were killed during pro-democracy protests in Egypt and a bomb wounded two policemen on Sunday, the anniversary of the 2011 uprising that toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak, security sources said. The anniversary is a test of whether Islamists and liberal activists facing one of Egypt's toughest crackdowns have the resolve to challenge the U.S.-backed government once again. #Business #India #Japan #Brazil #France #climate change #Argentina #United Kingdom #opinion
