Clashes in Maldives as thousands call for president to quit

MALE/COLOMBO (Reuters) - Clashes broke out in the Maldives on Friday after thousands gathered to protest against the arrest of former president Mohamed Nasheed and demand that current leader Abdulla Yameen resign. Tensions have escalated on the cluster of tropical islands off southwest India since Nasheed was arrested last weekend on charges of terrorism relating to an incident when, as president, he ordered the arrest of a judge. Nasheed, who appeared in court on Monday, has said he was forced to resign at gunpoint over the judicial row in 2012, and allies say he was ousted in a coup #Yahoo! #wcnts #typeof-social #undefined #cookie #values #rco #rch #typeof-registered #cnt

Argentine judge throws out cover-up allegation against president

BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - An Argentine judge on Thursday dismissed allegations that President Cristina Fernandez tried to cover up Iran's purported involvement in the deadly bombing of a Jewish centre in 1994. The judge "discontinued" the case brought by prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who was found dead in mysterious circumstances in January the day before he was to appear in Congress to discuss his criminal complaint.

Food supplements crucial to reduce child malnutrition - TRFN

LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - The addition of highly nutritious foods and supplements to the diets of poor mothers could help reduce child mortality and malnutrition in Africa and South Asia, food experts said on Thursday. With breastfeeding, fortified foods, including wheat-based products like porridge and micronutrient powders, are critical for children in the first two years of life, according to the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), a group of governments, businesses and non-governmental organisations working to reduce malnutrition. "Poor families often share one meal prepared for the whole family without taking a child's nutritional needs into account," GAIN's executive director Marc Van Ameringen told the Thomson Reuters Foundation #Yahoo! #content #wcnts #undefined #values #rch #typeof-registered #cnt

Russia's Khodorkovsky: Putin is a 'naked king' facing economic ruin and discord

LONDON (Reuters) - Former Russian tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky warned Vladimir Putin on Thursday that the Kremlin chief was a "naked king" presiding over an economy that will weaken further, eventually provoking a battle between rival clans in Moscow. "Putin with bare chest isn't a mighty leader: He is a naked king," Khodorkovsky, once Russia's richest man who was arrested in 2003 after falling foul of Putin only to be released in 2013, told an audience in London. Khodorkovsky, who once controlled Russia's biggest oil company, said the Russian economy would weaken further and that eventually its weakness would provoke a battle between the powerful clans which dominate Russia. #content #wcnts #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #cookie #values #rco #aut #rch #typeof-registered #cnt
