Kiev reports no combat casualties for second straight day

KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine's military reported no combat casualties at the front for a second straight day on Thursday, a sign that a ceasefire deal has held at last after rebels initially ignored it to launch one of the biggest battles of the war last week. After initially spurning the truce to advance, the pro-Russian separatist rebels have been withdrawing heavy weapons from the front under the ceasefire deal for the past two days. #facebook #Japan #Arabic #Middle East #Italy #Latin America #author #article

Reuters journalist Maria Golovnina died of asphyxiation - autopsy

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - An official autopsy report on the death of Reuters journalist Maria Golovnina has concluded that she died of asphyxiation, the cause of which "at this stage cannot be established." Golovnina, 34, the Reuters bureau chief for Afghanistan and Pakistan, was declared dead in an Islamabad hospital on Monday after she collapsed in the Reuters news bureau. Pakistan authorities are conducting a further toxicology report, which is expected to take about a month. "We fully support Maria's family, the doctors and others who are reviewing her case, and will provide them any information we can," Thomson Reuters, the parent company of Reuters, said in a statement. #Business #facebook #United States #Japan #Brazil #Arabic #Russia #Italy #Argentina #Latin America #Entertainment #article

Abused, imprisoned Vietnamese slave away in UK's cannabis farms - TRFN

LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Criminal defence lawyer Philippa Southwell points to the thick ring binders that line her desk in a small office above a bookie's and fast food joint in south London. More folders are neatly stacked on the floor, in a bookcase and a metal filing cabinet, a hint of her growing caseload. In recent years, Southwell has specialised in representing a particular kind of client: the mainly young men and boys who are trafficked to Britain from Vietnam to labour in cannabis farms. #facebook #United States #Japan #Russia #Argentina #United Kingdom #Mexico #author #opinion
