In blow to PM Cameron, Britain's anti-EU UKIP party wins second parliamentary seat

ROCHESTER/LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservatives lost a second parliamentary seat to the anti-EU UKIP party on Friday, an embarrassing defeat heralding a possible fragmentation of Britain's two-party system in next year's national election. With distrust of mainstream parties and anxiety about immigration rising, UKIP, the UK Independence Party, overturned a majority of almost 10,000 to beat Cameron's party in a special election in the southeast English constituency of Rochester and Strood six months before an unusually close-run national vote #United States #China #Technology #Arabic #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #opinion #conservatives

Canadian gunman toured Parliament weeks before attack

OTTAWA (Reuters) - The man who shot and killed a Canadian soldier in October and then stormed the country's Parliament with a rifle before being shot down himself, had taken a tour of the building less than three weeks earlier, a parliamentary spokeswoman said on Friday. The information suggests that Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, a Muslim convert who struggled with drug addiction, may have planned the Oct. 22 attack well in advance #Business #facebook #United States #India #Technology #Middle East #Russia #markets #Italy #Argentina #opinion #conservative
