Colombia's FARC rebels suspend unilateral ceasefire| Reuters

BOGOTA Colombia's Marxist FARC rebels suspended a unilateral ceasefire after government troops killed 26 of its fighters, the guerrilla group said on Friday, a move that will likely ratchet up tension at peace talks to end five decades of war. The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, said it lifted the ceasefire because of the attack, one of the deadliest confrontations since the two sides began negotiations in Cuba at the end of 2012. President Juan Manuel Santos said his armed forces are ready for the renewed offensive #Economy #Sports #India #France #Middle East #Health #Africa #Italy #United Kingdom #Latin America #Cuba #Colombia

Irish vote on gay marriage in landmark referendum| Reuters

DUBLIN Ireland voted on Friday on whether to allow gay marriage, just two decades after decriminalising homosexuality, with reports of a high turnout likely to favour the 'Yes' side. With the once mighty Catholic Church's influence ravaged by child abuse scandals, opinion polls indicated the proposal would pass by as much as two-to-one, making Ireland the first country to adopt same-sex marriage via a popular vote. Irish national broadcaster RTE estimated turnout was likely to reach 60 percent in Dublin, which would be the highest in a referendum for years. #Business #India #Technology #France #Health #Italy #United Kingdom #Entertainment #Mexico #opinion

DUBAI A suicide bomber killed 21 worshippers on Friday in a packed Shi'ite mosque in eastern Saudi Arabia, residents and the health minister said, the first attack in the kingdom to be claimed by Islamic State militants.
