East Ukraine rebels deny threat to ban OSCE from crash site

KIEV (Reuters) - Rebels in eastern Ukraine on Tuesday denied they had threatened to ban the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) from the crash site of Malaysian flight MH17. The self-proclaimed "Donetsk People's Republic" (DNR) said in a statement that information published in some media that it was refusing to cooperate with the European rights and security body was not true. #United States #India #Business #Japan #Brazil #France #Arabic #markets #Latin America #Entertainment #opinion

Gaza conflict to dent, not break Israel economy

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel's war against Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip is expected to cost it billions of dollars, temporarily hurt economic growth and put pressure on the government's finances. Analysts and officials compare the current operation to a one-month war between Israel and Hizbollah guerrillas in Lebanon in the summer of 2006, as well as to conflicts in Gaza in 2009 and 2012, when the economy took a hit but bounced back quickly, except for tourism #United States #Economy #Technology #France #Israel #Government #markets #Mexico #opinion

EU agrees first broad sanctions on Russia; Ukraine fighting kills dozens

BRUSSELS/DONETSK Ukraine (Reuters) - The European Union agreed for the first time on Tuesday to impose broad sanctions against Russian oil companies, banks and defence firms, by far the strongest international action yet over Moscow's support for rebels in eastern Ukraine. The measures mark the start of a new phase in the biggest confrontation between Moscow and the West since the Cold War, which worsened dramatically after the downing of Malaysian flight MH17 over rebel-held territory on July 17 by what Western countries say was a Russian-supplied missile. Diplomats said ambassadors from the 28-member European bloc agreed to restrictions on trade of equipment for the oil and defence sectors, and "dual use" technology with both defence and civilian purposes #India #Business #Arabic #markets #Africa #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America
