With election near, Tsipras faces widening rift within Syriza| Reuters

ATHENS Greek leftist leader Alexis Tsipras has seen off a threat from far-left rebels but his anti-austerity-turned-pro-bailout Syriza party is struggling through a deeply divisive identity crisis weeks before a national election. Just hours after Tsipras resigned as prime minister last week to pave the way for early elections, a sixth of Syriza's lawmakers broke away to form their own party to fight the 86 billion euro bailout package their former boss signed up to. The break-up initially allowed Tsipras to clear out his party's ranks of the vocal, anti-bailout faction that openly defied him in parliament. #Business #Technology #Middle East #science #markets

Thousands protest in Philippines over religious freedom| Reuters

MANILA Thousands of people belonging to a powerful local indigenous Christian organisation occupied a busy portion of the main highway in Manila on Friday to protest what they allege to be government's meddling over internal affairs of their church. Members of Iglesia ni Cristo (Church of Christ) or INC also called for the resignation of Justice Secretary Leila de Lima, who was investigating an illegal detention case filed by a dismissed church minister against Iglesia's leaders. Waving church flags and holding anti-government placards calling for religious freedom, Iglesia members chanted "Hustisya" (Justice) and "INC" as they blocked two busy intersections, causing late Friday night traffic jams. #India #Technology #science #markets #opinion

INSIGHT - Rouhani faces pressure for release of Iran's political prisoners| Reuters

BEIRUT Having struck a historic nuclear deal to end decades of enmity between Iran and the West, President Hassan Rouhani faces a fresh challenge at home, to win the release of leading political prisoners whose case has polarized the Islamic Republic. Former presidential candidates Mir Hussein Moussavi and Mehdi Karroubi, along with Moussavis wife Zahra Rahnavard, have been under house arrest since 2011. Securing the release of the high profile trio would fulfill one of Rouhanis biggest campaign promises two years ago, but it is fraught with risks and could lead to an outright showdown with Iranian hardliners, experts say #United States #Middle East #science #United Kingdom #Latin America

Scientists solve mystery of polar bear Knut's death| Reuters

BERLIN Knut, the star polar bear who was hand-reared at Berlin zoo after his mother rejected him, had a type of auto-immune inflation of the brain that is found in humans, scientists said on Thursday. Knut, who was just four when he drowned at the zoo in 2011, was reared by his keeper Thomas Doerflein. Fans from around the world came to watch them play together, earning the zoo millions and inspiring a dizzying range of merchandise. #Business #United States #Technology #science #Argentina #Entertainment #lifestyle
