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.

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
