Flooding leaves mess in oceanfront Massachusetts after storm

MARSHFIELD, Mass. (Reuters) - Ocean Street in the waterfront Massachusetts town of Marshfield was littered with lobster traps, downed wires and chunks of houses on Wednesday, after a massive blizzard hammered New England. Notably absent was much of the 2 feet (30 cm) of snow that blanketed much of the Boston area, since for much of the storm, Ocean Street was under water because of flooding from a breached sea wall. #facebook #United States #India #Brazil #Technology #Russia #United Kingdom #Latin America #author

Australian court rules detention of Sri Lanka asylum seekers at sea lawful

Doubts arise over crucial Philippine autonomy law after rebel clash

MANILA (Reuters) - Work to set up an autonomous Muslim region in the Philippines to end a 45-year insurgency has been suspended and may be abandoned altogether because of a clash in which more than 50 people were killed, legislators said on Wednesday. A top official described the clash between police and rebels on Sunday, which shattered a three-year ceasefire, as a "misencounter" during a bid to arrest two militants who had taken refuge with Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) fighters. The rebels, operating in the south of the largely Roman Catholic country, have agreed to disarm in exchange for an autonomous government #Business #India #China #Japan #Technology #Middle East #Russia #markets #Argentina #Mexico #opinion

Kazakhstan bans rallies, fearing Ukraine-style turmoil - U.N. report

ALMATY (Reuters) - Kazakhstan says it has clamped down on peaceful rallies out of fear of a repeat of the protests that brought chaos to Ukraine, a United Nations special rapporteur said in a critical report on the central Asian state.
