Russia throws rights accusations back at U.S. with Ferguson unrest

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia pointed on Wednesday to rioting in Ferguson and protests across the United States as evidence that its detractors in Washington were hypocrites and in no position to lecture Moscow on human rights. Issuing two statements on the unrest in just one day, the Russian Foreign Ministry said the United States should "focus on large-scale domestic problems with safeguarding human rights" rather than preach to others. #Business #facebook #United States #China #Japan #Technology #France #Middle East #Italy #Argentina #Latin America #Mexico

HONG KONG (Reuters) - Hong Kong police on Wednesday cleared one of the largest protest sites that have choked the city for months, arresting scores of pro-democracy activists in a blow to those hoping to wrest greater political freedom from authorities in Beijing.

Egyptian inquiry into political violence seeks changes to protest law

CAIRO (Reuters) - An Egyptian committee investigating political violence made a rare break on Wednesday with judicial support for heavy-handed state tactics, recommending the government should amend a law restricting protest. The government-ordered inquiry is investigating acts of violence after the army toppled President Mohamed Mursi in July 2013 and cracked down on his Muslim Brotherhood supporters. Its report echoed the findings of a government-appointed panel in March, blaming much of the violence at protest sites on the Brotherhood - which maintains it espouses only peaceful methods - while placing some responsibility on the police for disproportionate use of force. #Business #facebook #Brazil #France #Russia #Government #Argentina #Latin America #Mexico

Putin says Russia is not a threat to anyone

SOCHI, Russia (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday Russia would safeguard its own security and that of its allies but posed a threat to no one. "We pose no threat to anyone and do not intend to get involved in any geopolitical games or intrigues, let alone conflicts, no matter who tries to draw us into them or how they do so," Putin told a meeting with military chiefs in his state residence in the Black Sea resort of Sochi. "At the same time, it is indispensable to securely safeguard the sovereignty and integrity of Russia and the security of our allies."
