Bomb blast kills five at bus station in north Nigeria - police

ABUJA (Reuters) - A bomb exploded at a bus station in northern Nigeria's Bauchi state late on Wednesday, killing at least five people and wounding 12, police said. The blast, which struck the town of Azare, is likely to be blamed on Islamist Boko Haram militants, casting further doubt on government reports that it had reached a temporary ceasefire with the rebels in order to secure the release of more than 200 schoolgirls they are holding hostage #Business #India #Brazil #Technology #France #Middle East #Government #markets #Nigeria #Mexico

Nigeria talks with Boko Haram but no sign of girls' release

N'DJAMENA/MAIDUGURI (Reuters) - Nearly a week after Nigeria announced a ceasefire deal with Boko Haram, which it said would include the release of more than 200 schoolgirls kidnapped by the Islamist group, there is still no sign of the girls being freed. Talks took place this week between the government and the Islamist militant group in the Chadian capital, but they are shrouded in secrecy #facebook #United States #Brazil #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #Government #markets #Nigeria #United Kingdom #Latin America #opinion

Hong Kong protesters march after fruitless talks with government

HONG KONG (Reuters) - About 200 Hong Kong protesters marched to the home of the city's Beijing-backed leader on Wednesday to push their case for greater democracy a day after talks between student leaders and senior officials failed to break the deadlock. Others continued to occupy main streets in the Chinese-controlled city, where they have camped for nearly a month in protest against a central government plan that would give Hong Kong people the chance to vote for their own leader in 2017 but tightly restrict the candidates to Beijing loyalists. A wide chasm separates the protesters and the government, which has labelled their actions illegal and repeatedly said their demand for open nominations is impossible under the laws of the former British colony #facebook #Japan #Brazil #Russia #Government #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #opinion #city

Thane Don't believe glossy real estate ads, this city is no escape from Mumbai

Thane suffers from a highly politicised municipal governance that is ineffective -- its green cover claims are dubious, it has no idea how to deal with the fastest growing population and its infrastructure is crumbling. #Thane #InMyOpinion #Mumbai #Infrastructure #Governance #realty #stray dogs #Transport #Real estate prices #Trees #Green Cover #Mumbai Metropolitan Region
