Kazakh leader sails to re-election with stability mantra| Reuters

ASTANA (Reuters) - Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev was set to renew his 26-year grip on power on Sunday, offering the multi-ethnic Central Asian state economic and social stability in return for what rights groups call systematic suppression of opposition. Nazarbayev, 74, officially titled "Leader of the Nation", called presidential elections more than a year early in a move that could quash any speculation about a successor #Business #United States #China #Technology #France #Middle East #science #Argentina #Entertainment #Ukraine #opinion #lifestyle

Eyeing Arab ties, Israel to observe nuclear pact meeting| Reuters

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel will take part as an observer in a major nuclear non-proliferation conference that opens at the United Nations on Monday, ending a 20-year absence in hope of fostering dialogue with Arab states, a senior Israeli official said. Assumed to have the Middle East's sole nuclear arsenal, and having never joined the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, Israel has stayed away from gatherings of NPT signatories since 1995 in protest at resolutions it regarded as biased against it #India #Technology #France #Israel #Africa #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #opinion

Philippines calls on ASEAN to urge China to halt land reclamation| Reuters

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - The Philippines called on its Southeast Asian neighbours to unite in urging China to halt reclamation of land in the South China Sea, but the call failed to raise widespread support ahead of a regional summit. China claims 90 percent of the South China Sea, which is believed to be rich in oil and gas. Its claims overlap with those of Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam and Taiwan. #Economy #Sports #United States #Technology #France #Middle East #science #Taiwan #Entertainment #lifestyle

Quake overwhelms Nepal's weak healthcare system| Reuters

KATHMANDU (Reuters) - A massive earthquake in Nepal has exposed the woeful state of its medical facilities as hospitals struggle to treat vast numbers of injured with limited supplies and staff. The country of 28 million has only 2.1 physicians and 50 hospital beds for every 10,000 people, according to a 2011 World Health Organization report. The situation is worsening a humanitarian crisis triggered by Nepal's worst earthquake in 81 years. #Politics #Technology #France #markets #earthquake #Italy #Latin America #Mexico #opinion #lifestyle
