New York mayor calls for pause in protests after police killings

NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio sought to ease tensions with the police force on Monday, calling for a suspension of protests against the use of excessive force until after the funerals of two officers killed by a gunman over the weekend. De Blasio, a Democrat who has come under intense criticism from some police unions for his handling of protests over police killings of unarmed black men, asked the city to stand by families of the officers slain on Saturday. "It's a time for everyone to put aside political debates, put aside protests, put aside all of the things we will talk about in due time," de Blasio said in a speech to a charity with close ties to the New York Police Department #facebook #United States #India #Japan #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #markets #Mexico #author #opinion

Russia watchdog blocks web pages calling for Navalny support protest - activists

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's Internet watchdog is working to block social networking sites rallying support for a mass protest next month backing Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny, activists said on Monday. Navalny, a leader of the 2011-12 Moscow protest movement against President Vladimir Putin's rule, is facing charges of stealing 30 million roubles from two firms, between 2008 and 2012, in a case he has dismissed as politically motivated. Putin's popularity reached record-highs this year, on patriotic sentiment after Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine, but a currency crisis driven by Western sanctions and an oil price slump threatens economic stability and could strengthen his critics #facebook #Japan #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #markets #United Kingdom #Latin America #opinion

Al Jazeera suspends Egypt channel as Doha, Cairo mull closer ties

CAIRO (Reuters) - Qatari-owned Al Jazeera suspended broadcast of its Egypt-focused channel on Monday, citing a product restructuring, as Doha and Cairo seek to mend ties that deteriorated last year after the army toppled elected Islamist President Mohamed Mursi. Qatar was one of the main supporters of Mursi and his Muslim Brotherhood during their year in power. Ties between Egypt and Qatar have been strained since then-army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi ousted Mursi in July 2013 after protests against his rule #facebook #India #Japan #Brazil #France #Russia #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #opinion

Exclusive: WHO says Syria approves medicine deliveries to Aleppo, other areas
