"Highway of Heroes" bears slain Canadian soldier home

HAMILTON Ontario (Reuters) - The body of a Canadian soldier shot dead while guarding the country's war memorial in Ottawa returned to his hometown on Friday, after thousands of his countrymen paid tribute along the nation's "Highway of Heroes." Crowds of people lined much of the roughly 500-km (310-mile) route along Lake Ontario while a black hearse accompanied by dozens of police vehicles bore the slain soldier, Corporal Nathan Cirillo, 24, back to Hamilton, Ontario. Police said a home-grown radical, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, killed Cirillo on Wednesday before running into the Parliament building where he was shot dead near where Prime Minister Stephen Harper was meeting with lawmakers #Business #facebook #China #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #markets #Italy #Argentina #Latin America #opinion

Attacks in Egypt's Sinai kill 33 security personnel

ISMAILIA (Reuters) - Two attacks in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula killed 33 security personnel on Friday, security sources said, in some of the worst anti-state violence since Islamist President Mohamed Mursi was overthrown last year. The violence prompted Egypt to declare a three-month state of emergency in parts of North Sinai, where the violence took place, the state news agency reported. The attacks are a setback for the government, which had managed over the past few months to make some progress in the struggle against an Islamist militant insurgency in the Sinai as it focuses on trying to repair the economy #Economy #India #Japan #Technology #Russia #markets #United Kingdom #Mexico #opinion
