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

Libya PM hopes for deal with rivals, Tripoli delays| Reuters

VALLETTA Libya's internationally recognised prime minister said he hoped to reach a power-sharing peace agreement on Thursday with his rivals during U.N.-backed talks to end a conflict that threatens to break up the country. Libya has two governments and parliaments, with the recognised government operating out of the country's east since an armed alliance known as Libya Dawn took over the capital Tripoli, in the west, and declared its own government last year. Abdullah al-Thinni, who leads the government based in the eastern city of Tobruk, flew to Malta on Wednesday for talks with the Maltese prime minister, Joseph Muscat #Business #Technology #Middle East #Security #Entertainment
