U.S. only training 60 Syrian fighters, far below expectations| Reuters

WASHINGTON The United States was only training about 60 Syrian opposition fighters to battle Islamic State as of July 3, far below expectations, Defense Secretary Ash Carter told Congress on Tuesday, citing rigorous U.S. vetting of recruits. The program, which launched in May in Jordan and Turkey, was designed to train as many as 5,400 fighters a year and seen as a test of President Barack Obama's strategy of engaging local partners to combat extremists. #Business #Islam #Greece #Latin America #opinion

Air strikes kill nearly 100 in Yemen, cast shadow on truce talks| Reuters

DUBAI/ADEN Nearly 100 people were killed on Monday in air strikes across Yemen, the Houthi-run state news agency reported, as a Saudi-led coalition stepped up attacks that are likely to weigh on efforts to broker a humanitarian truce.

Pope draws half million to outdoor Mass in Ecuador| Reuters

GUAYAQUIL Pope Francis said Mass for more than half a million Ecuadoreans on Monday and hinted he wanted a major Vatican gathering this year to find ways to reach out to Catholics who feel excluded by the Church. On the first full day of a three-nation "homecoming" trip to South America, the Argentine-born pontiff was in Ecuador's second city Guayaquil, a steamy port sometimes referred to as the world's "banana capital," given its bustling fruit trade. #Greece #markets #Italy #Paraguay #Christianity #Ecuador

BERLIN The Greek economy may face more trouble after voters delivered a defiant no to the terms of a bailout, but tourists remain undeterred and the prospect of rock-bottom prices may even be increasing interest. Travel associations in Britain, Germany and France report no cancellations so far and say bookings have been strong. In fact, searches for flights to Greece from Britain and Spain are up in recent days, says travel search engine Skyscanner. #Business #Greece #Europe #Entertainment #opinion

Britain's EU 'outers' see opportunity in wake of Greece's 'No'| Reuters

LONDON For British opponents of the European Union, Greece's turmoil offers an opening: the chance to tempt voters away from what they cast as a crumbling European project, before a looming referendum on Britain's EU membership. Greeks voted against the terms of a bailout on Sunday, delivering one of the biggest blows to Europe's monetary union since the euro was launched in 1999. "The European Union is dying before our eyes," said Nigel Farage, leader of the UK Independence Party, an anti-EU party which won 12.6 percent of the vote, but just one seat, in Britain's May 7 general election. #Business #India #Greece #Russia #Latin America
