Hardline Buddhists in Myanmar, Sri Lanka strike antiIslamist pact

COLOMBO (Reuters) A Myanmar monk accused of inciting violence against Muslims and a hardline Buddhist group in Sri Lanka said on Tuesday they would work together to rally other Buddhist groups and defend their faith against militant Islamists. Ashin Wirathu, who once called himself "the Burmese bin Laden" said the agreement with Sri Lanka's Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) or "Buddhist Power Force", was the first step in a broad alliance against conversions by Islamists in the region. The deal gave no detailed indication what the groups were planning to counter what they said was the risk of Buddhists becoming "victims of conversions by extremists", but the agreement could stoke antiMuslim attacks in both countries #Power #Faith #Muslims #editing #Buddhist #said-on-tuesday #Ashin Wirathu #lanka #group-on-sunday

Latins, Europe unite at U.N. to back persecuted gays

GENEVA (Reuters) Latin American and European countries united on Friday to push a resolution on ending violence against homosexuals through the United Nations Human Rights Council, despite strong opposition from Islamic and African states. The resolution, passed by 25 votes against 14 in the 47member body, ensured that the issue remained on its agenda in the face of what its backers said was a rising global tide of discrimination and physical abuse against gay men and lesbians #facebook #United States #Business #Russia #markets #Africa #Italy #Argentina #Latin America #Muslim #european
