Three missing journalists being held by Colombia's ELN rebels -government | Reuters

BOGOTA The Colombian Marxist rebel group, the National Liberation Army, is responsible for the disappearance of three journalists who disappeared in recent days near the border with Venezuela, Colombia's defence minister said on Thursday. The reporters vanished while working in El Tarra municipality in Norte de Santander, where the group, known as the ELN, earns money from illegal cocaine production in the lawless region about 400 km (250 miles) north of Bogota. The government did not classify the disappearances as kidnappings, but the group has held hundreds captive during more than 50 years of war #United States #Economy #Business #Europe #Argentina #kidnapping #article

Chile's students clash with police as protests intensify | Reuters

SANTIAGO Police clashed with student demonstrators in the streets of Chile's capital Santiago on Thursday, in the latest protest by university and high school pupils who say the government is moving too slowly on planned reforms. During the march, which authorities had not authorized, students attempted to walk along the Alameda, Santiago's main artery, and demonstrate in front of La Moneda presidential palace. But heavily armoured police officers dispersed the crowd with water cannon and tear gas, as protesters threw stones and set up flaming barricades. #United States #Economy #Middle East #Health #Chile

Netanyahu signs coalition deal, names far-right Lieberman defence chief | Reuters

JERUSALEM Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his choice for defence minister, ultranationalist Avigdor Lieberman, signed a coalition agreement on Wednesday and issued assurances that the most right wing government in Israel's history would act responsibly. Once Lieberman is sworn in, Netanyahu will have a government of 66 legislators, widening his current one-seat majority in the 120-member parliament, a goal the Israeli leader has said he has sought since winning a fourth term last year. Lieberman's return to office - he was previously foreign minister - has raised questions at home and abroad given his past criticism of Israel's Arab minority, U.S.-sponsored peace talks with Palestinians and regional powers Egypt and Turkey. #Politics #Economy #India #Middle East #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom
