World cities, home to most people, to add 2.5 billion more by 2050 - U.N.

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - More than half of the world's seven billion people live in urban areas, with the top "mega cities" - with more than 10 million inhabitants - being Tokyo, Delhi, Shanghai, Mexico City and Sao Paulo, according to a United Nations report on Thursday. That proportion is expected to jump, so that more than six billion people will be city dwellers by 2045, the UN's World Urbanization Prospects report said. The jump will be driven by a "preference of people to move from rural to urban areas, and the overall positive growth rate of the world's population, which is projected to continue over the next 35 years," John Wilmoth, director of the Population Division in the UN's Department of Economic and Social Affairs said at a news conference Thursday at the UN #facebook #India #Technology #France #Arabic #markets #Italy #United Kingdom #Entertainment #opinion

YANGON, July 10 (Reuters) - Four journalists and a newspaper boss were sentenced in Myanmar on Thursday to 10 years' jail with hard labour for reporting about an alleged chemical weapons factory, legal and media sources said.
