Brown says London must keep promise to Scotland as political truce ends

EDINBURGH/LONDON (Reuters) Former prime minister Gordon Brown urged British leaders on Saturday to keep their promise to grant further powers to Scotland after it voted to remain in the United Kingdom, as a consensus between London's main parties evaporated. All the three biggest parties had promised to rapidly expand Scotland's autonomy in a lastminute push to shore up support for the union just days before Thursday's referendum, which came down 5545 against independence. But within hours of the result, Britain's Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron had reshuffled the cards by promising not only to fulfil the pledge to Scotland but also to make it part of an overhaul of the balance of powers across the rest of the United Kingdom, within the same timeframe of a few months #facebook #China #Business #Japan #Brazil #Technology #France #Russia #Argentina #United Kingdom #Mexico #british

More than 300 Kurd fighters cross into Syria from Turkey monitor

BEIRUT (Reuters) More than 300 Kurdish fighters have crossed into Syria from Turkey to help push back an Islamic State advance on a Kurdish border town, a group monitoring Syria's conflict said on Saturday. "They crossed over last night, they are more than 300," said Rami Abdulrahman, who runs the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights that monitors the war using sources on the ground. He said it was not clear which group the fighters belonged to but said they had joined Kurdish forces in Syria who are fighting Islamic State around the town of Ayn alArab, known as Kobani in Kurdish. #China #Business #Japan #Syria #Technology #Arabic #markets #Turkey #Mexico

Kurdish leader urges world to protect Syrian town from Islamic State

DIKMETAS Turkey (Reuters) Iraqi Kurdish leader Masoud Barzani called on Friday for international intervention to protect a Kurdish town in neighbouring Syria from Islamic State fighters who have forced many Syrian Kurds to flee across the border into Turkey. Thousands of Kurds crossed the frontier on Friday, fearing an imminent attack on the border town of Ayn alArab, known as Kobani in Kurdish, as Islamic State (IS) fighters advanced after seizing dozens of nearby villages over the past two days. "I call on the international community to use every means as soon as possible to protect Kobani," Barzani, the president of Iraq's autonomous Kurdish region, said in a statement #facebook #China #Japan #Syria #Technology #markets #United Kingdom #Turkey #Mexico
