With election near, Tsipras faces widening rift within Syriza| Reuters

ATHENS Greek leftist leader Alexis Tsipras has seen off a threat from far-left rebels but his anti-austerity-turned-pro-bailout Syriza party is struggling through a deeply divisive identity crisis weeks before a national election. Just hours after Tsipras resigned as prime minister last week to pave the way for early elections, a sixth of Syriza's lawmakers broke away to form their own party to fight the 86 billion euro bailout package their former boss signed up to. The break-up initially allowed Tsipras to clear out his party's ranks of the vocal, anti-bailout faction that openly defied him in parliament. #Business #Technology #Middle East #science #markets

Thousands protest in Philippines over religious freedom| Reuters

MANILA Thousands of people belonging to a powerful local indigenous Christian organisation occupied a busy portion of the main highway in Manila on Friday to protest what they allege to be government's meddling over internal affairs of their church. Members of Iglesia ni Cristo (Church of Christ) or INC also called for the resignation of Justice Secretary Leila de Lima, who was investigating an illegal detention case filed by a dismissed church minister against Iglesia's leaders. Waving church flags and holding anti-government placards calling for religious freedom, Iglesia members chanted "Hustisya" (Justice) and "INC" as they blocked two busy intersections, causing late Friday night traffic jams. #India #Technology #science #markets #opinion
