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

Insight - Jordan takes no chances in confronting homegrown Jihadis

AMMAN (Reuters) - At Jordans State Security court, Islamic State militants, clad in green military fatigues with long, unkempt beards, stood impassively, awaiting sentence inside a black iron cage. The barred enclosure was very much like the one in which their fellow jihadis in Syria burned alive Jordanian pilot Mouath al-Kasaesbeh, igniting a storm across a troubled kingdom in an uneasy alliance with the West against Islamic State (IS). The defendants did not blink when the military judge handed down sentences ranging from three to 15 years with hard labour. #Yahoo! #content #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #values #rco #aut #rch #typeof-registered #cnt

Ukraine heaps on economic pressure as central bank confuses, truce takes hold

KIEV/MAKIYVKA, Ukraine (Reuters) - Ukraine came under greater economic pressure after unexpectedly banning most currency trading and then abruptly reversing course, wreaking havoc on the hryvnia, just as a truce in the east took hold on Wednesday with no combat fatalities reported.With the long-awaited ceasefire coming into force, Russian President Vladimir Putin once again threatened gas supplies for the fourth time in a decade if Moscow did not receive advance payment. In rebel-held eastern Ukraine, pro-Russian separatists were withdrawing heavy guns from the front. Kiev said it was too early to do likewise, but its acknowledgement that most of the front was quiet suggested it, too, could implement a truce that had appeared stillborn in the midst of a major rebel offensive last week. #Yahoo! #content #wcnts #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #cookie #values #rco #aut #rch #cnt

North Korea, running scared from Ebola, bans foreigners from marathon

SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea has banned foreign runners from participating in an international marathon scheduled to be held in the capital in April, citing fears about the spread of the deadly Ebola virus, a Beijing-based travel agency said on Monday. North Korea is thousands of miles from the epicentre of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and has reported no cases of the virus, which has killed more than 9,000 people. Nonetheless, its borders have remained closed to foreign tourists since last October, for fear the virus might spread, and it imposes a strict 21-day quarantine for foreign aid workers and diplomats, who have been told to stay in embassy compounds #Yahoo! #content #wcnts #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #values #rco #aut #rch #typeof-registered #cnt
