British lawmaker Cox was killed because of her political views - husband | Reuters

LONDON British lawmaker Jo Cox, who was shot and stabbed in the street last week, died because of her strong political views, her husband said on Tuesday. Cox, a supporter of Britain's European Union membership who had also campaigned for Britain to do more to help refugees, was killed in her northern English electoral district by a man heard shouting "Britain first". "She had very strong political views and I believe she was killed because of those views," her husband Brendan Cox told broadcasters. #Economy #India #Europe #United Kingdom #political

Political future on line, Italy's Renzi launches referendum campaign | Reuters

ROME Prime Minister Matteo Renzi launched his campaign on Saturday to win an October referendum on constitutional reform, staking his political future on an attempt to finally give Italy stable governments. Recent opinion polls suggest the electorate will reject his proposal to streamline the parliamentary system and strip Italy's regions of some of their decision-making powers. The 41-year-old prime minister has said he will stand down if he loses, a gamble that could usher in a new era of political chaos and revive market turbulence in the euro zone's third-largest economy. #Economy #Italy #Argentina #Entertainment #political

Mali signs peace deal, rebels want more time for consultation

ALGIERS (Reuters) - Mali signed a preliminary peace deal on Sunday to end fighting with northern separatist fighters, but the Tuareg-led rebels asked for more time for consultations before signing the agreement. The United Nations-brokered deal seeks to tackle decades of uprisings and instability in northern Mali, where Western and regional powers worry Islamist militants could return two years after French military intervention drove them out. "This accord is not intended to immediately resolve all the problems of a deep, multifaceted, cyclical crisis. #facebook #Business #Brazil #Technology #France #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #opinion #political

Malaysia's Anwar faces final judgement in sodomy case

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Malaysia's highest court will deliver a decision on Tuesday on an appeal against a sodomy conviction by opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, with a ruling against him likely meaning a five-year prison term that would stymie his political ambitions. Anwar was the ruling party's rising star in the mid-1990s before he fell out with then Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad. Since then, the former deputy prime minister has been beset by legal problems and spent several years in prison after being convicted of corruption and an earlier sodomy charge. #India #China #Business #Brazil #markets #author #opinion #political
Swedish PM calls first snap vote in 50 years after far-right force budget defeat

Swedish PM calls first snap vote in 50 years after far-right force budget defeat

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Sweden called its first snap election for more than half a century in March after a far-right party helped defeat the centre-left minority government's first budget in parliament on Wednesday. Formed after a fractured September election that handed the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats the balance of power, Prime Minister Stefan Lofven's Social Democrat-Green coalition has been widely viewed as Sweden's weakest government in decades. Shunned by mainstream parties, the Sweden Democrats have threatened to make Sweden effectively ungovernable unless the country adopts tough immigration policies like those of nearby Denmark, including a 90 percent cut in asylum seeker numbers. #United States #Business #Brazil #Middle East #Russia #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #Sweden #political
