Gaza conflict to dent, not break Israel economy

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel's war against Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip is expected to cost it billions of dollars, temporarily hurt economic growth and put pressure on the government's finances. Analysts and officials compare the current operation to a one-month war between Israel and Hizbollah guerrillas in Lebanon in the summer of 2006, as well as to conflicts in Gaza in 2009 and 2012, when the economy took a hit but bounced back quickly, except for tourism #United States #Economy #Technology #France #Israel #Government #markets #Mexico #opinion

China says investigating powerful former security chief for graft

BEIJING (Reuters) - China is investigating former domestic security chief Zhou Yongkang, one of the most powerful politicians of the last decade, on suspicion of corruption, the government said on Tuesday, in what could become China's biggest graft scandal. The ruling Communist Party is investigating Zhou for suspected "serious disciplinary violations", the party's graft watchdog, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, said in a brief statement, using the usual euphemism for corruption. The decision was made in line with the party's constitution and anti-corruption regulations, the statement added, without giving details #India #China #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #Government #markets #United Kingdom #Latin America #Entertainment #Mexico

Report on NGO funds: Is the Intelligence Bureau on a witch hunt?

The first thing first. All NGOs should be made accountable. They must make full and public disclosure of their funding and expenditure. They must also be made answerable under the RTI Act.
