Turkey's Erdogan says new constitution priority after 2015 election

ISTANBUL (Reuters) President Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday forging a new constitution after a parliamentary election next year would be a priority for Turkey, signalling no letup in his drive to create an executive presidency. Erdogan, who became Turkey's first popularlyelected head of state in August after 12 years as prime minister, has made no secret of his ambition to change the constitution and bolster the powers of the presidency, a move opponents fear will herald an increasingly authoritarian rule. "Immediately subsequent to the 2015 elections, all parties in the parliament should free themselves from prejudice and come together to write a new constitution based on reconciliation," Erdogan said in a speech at the opening of parliament #facebook #United States #Brazil #Technology #France #markets #Italy #United Kingdom #Turkey #opinion

Nazi hunters seek German probe of WW2 death squad suspects

BERLIN (Reuters) The Simon Wiesenthal Center has sent the German government a list of 80 people it believes murdered Jews while serving in Nazi death squads in World War Two and who may be still alive, the head of the Israel office of the organisation said. The push for an investigation into members of Einsatzgruppen, or death squads, was triggered by a landmark conviction in 2011 of John Demjanjuk, a guard at the Sobibor death camp, said the Wiesenthal Center's Efraim Zuroff. #facebook #Business #Technology #France #Israel #Mexico #german #article

Hong Kong's embattled leader believes protests could last weekssource

HONG KONG (Reuters) Hong Kong authorities will not immediately move to clear tens of thousands of prodemocracy protesters occupying large areas of the city, and will let them stay for weeks if need be, a source with ties to leader Leung Chunying said on Wednesday. In contrast, students spearheading the protest movement ratcheted up pressure on Leung, saying they would occupy more government buildings unless the Beijingbacked chief executive stepped down by Thursday night. Hong Kong protesters are angry about China's decision to limit voters' choices in a 2017 leadership election, and, in a major challenge to Beijing's authority in Hong Kong and beyond, have brought much of the financial hub to a standstill. #United States #Brazil #France #Arabic #Government #markets #Argentina #Latin America #chinese #opinion #city
