Insight In al Qaeda attack, lines between Pakistan military, militants blur

KARACHI/ISLAMABAD (Reuters) Months after Owais Jakhrani was sacked from the Pakistan navy for radical Islamist views, he led an audacious mission to take over a warship and turn its guns on a U.S. naval vessel in the open seas. The early September dawn raid at a naval base in the southern city of Karachi was thwarted, but not before Jakhrani, two officers and an unidentified fourth assailant snuck past a patrol boat in a dinghy and engaged in an intense firefight on or around the ship. #facebook #Obama #Economy #Pakistan #Technology #markets #Argentina #Mexico

Kurds seize Iraq/Syria border post; Sunni tribe joins fight against Islamic State

ARBIL Iraq/MURSITPINAR Turkey (Reuters) Iraqi Kurdish troops drove Islamic State fighters from a strategic border crossing with Syria on Tuesday and won the support of members of a major Sunni tribe, in one of the biggest successes since U.S. forces began bombing the Islamists. The victory, which could make it harder for militants to operate on both sides of the frontier, was also achieved with help from Kurds from the Syrian side of the frontier, a new sign of cooperation across the border #facebook #United States #Economy #China #Japan #Arabic #Russia #Argentina #United Kingdom #Climate

Myanmar investment message undermined by politics, sanctions

NEW YORK (Reuters) The rapid economic transformation of Myanmar, less than two years after transitioning from military control and opening itself to the world, is not without its rough patches, the nation's top economic minister said on Wednesday. At the same time, George Soros, one of the earliest investors in Myanmar's economy and even more so its social reform, said he was troubled by the slowdown in reforms ahead of next year's elections. #Economy #Elections #France #Russia #Government #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #opinion

Rousseff regains edge in Brazil presidential race as Silva slips

BRASILIA (Reuters) President Dilma Rousseff has regained a slight edge in Brazil's presidential race after weeks of aggressive campaigning against environmentalist Marina Silva, who is losing some voter support in the campaign's homestretch, a poll showed on Tuesday. Rousseff would have 42 percent of the votes against 41 percent for Silva in a secondround runoff if the election were held today, a one point advantage that amounts to a statistical tie as it is within the margin of error of the survey by polling firm MDA #facebook #Economy #India #Brazil #France #Russia #United Kingdom #Latin America #Election #opinion
