Macedonia's embattled leader rallies supporters in show of force| Reuters

SKOPJE Macedonias embattled prime minister rallied thousands of supporters on Monday in a show of force a day after opponents held their own mass protest to demand his resignation over months of damaging wire-tap revelations. The crowd in central Skopje appeared comparable in size to Sundays opposition rally when tens of thousands called for Nikola Gruevski to quit over a flood of disclosures that the West says have cast serious doubt on the state of democracy in the former Yugoslav republic. #Business #Economy #India #France #Middle East #Greece #markets #Argentina #Entertainment #Mexico

SKOPJE Western powers on Monday questioned the Macedonian government's commitment to democracy and European values over its failure to address allegations of abuse of power, piling pressure on leader Nikola Gruevski following a weekend of bloodshed. The unusually strong rebuke follows months of damaging opposition disclosures from taped conversations involving Gruevski and his closest allies that the West says raise serious questions about the state of democracy in the ex-Yugoslav republic #Business #Economy #United States #India #France #Greece #markets #Africa #Argentina #Latin America #Mexico #lifestyle

Italy says 10 migrants die, 4,800 rescued in ongoing mission| Reuters

ROME (Reuters) - About 4,800 migrants were plucked from boats off the coast of Libya over the weekend and 10 bodies were recovered, Italy's coast guard and navy said, in what looked to be the biggest rescue operation of its kind so far this year. Two weeks after nearly 900 boat people drowned in the worst Mediterranean shipwreck in living memory, the flow of people desperate to reach a better life in Europe has accelerated as people smugglers take advantage of calmer seas. #Economy #United States #Egypt #Middle East #Greece #science #markets #Africa #Italy #Latin America #Austria #lifestyle

Three migrants dead after boat sinks off Egypt's coast| Reuters

CAIRO (Reuters) - Three people died when a boat carrying migrants to Europe sunk on Saturday off of Egypt's coast, security sources and state media in Egypt said. The deaths of as many as 700 people attempting a similar trip from Libya last month brought renewed international focus to the plight of migrants, thousands of whom attempt the dangerous trip across the Mediterranean Sea every year to seek a better life in Europe. In addition to the three who died at sea on Saturday, 31 other migrants were rescued by Egyptian authorities and subsequently arrested, including 13 Syrians, 15 Sudanese, two Eritreans and one Egyptian, the state-run Al Ahram newspaper said on its website #Business #Economy #India #Egypt #France #Middle East #Greece #science #markets #Argentina #Mexico
