Paris protesters urge Greeks to say 'no' to austerity| Reuters

PARIS Thousands of French protesters on Thursday urged Greek voters to reject austerity imposed by the European Union in an implicit call for them to vote "no" in a weekend referendum on a cash-for-reform deal with creditors. The protest in Paris, organised by left-wing rebels within the ruling French Socialist party, goes against the line pushed by President Francois Hollande's government that a "no" vote would be a dangerous step towards a possible exit from the euro zone. Police put the number of protesters in the Bastille Square, a focal point of the 1789 French revolution and a traditional rallying place for protesters, at around 3,000 #Business #United States #Europe #markets #Latin America #Entertainment #opinion

U.S. probe sees no links among black church fires in South| Reuters

WASHINGTON Federal law enforcement officials have found no links among any of several recent fires at African American churches in the U.S. South and have determined that two were started by natural causes and one was due to an electrical fire. "All of the fires remain under active investigation and federal law enforcement continues to work to determine the cause of all of the fires," Justice Department spokeswoman Melanie Newman said in a statement."To date the investigations have not revealed any potential links between the fires." The investigation into the fires follows the June 17 shootings at a historic African American church in Charleston, South Carolina, in which nine black people were killed and a white man linked to racist views was charged in their deaths #Economy #Middle East #markets #Argentina #Latin America

LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - As a schoolgirl in North Korea, Hyeonseo Lee was forced to watch executions, denounce her friends for fabricated transgressions and dig tunnels in case of a nuclear attack. But Lee and her classmates grew up convinced they lived in the "greatest nation on earth" run by a benevolent god-like leader whom they loved in the way many children love Santa Claus. #Books #India #markets #North Korea #United Kingdom #Latin America
