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

Iraqi PM orders easier access to Baghdad's Green Zone as protests surge| Reuters

BAGHDAD Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi on Friday ordered security forces to ease access to Baghdad's fortified Green Zone and main streets, in an apparent bid to improve daily life for ordinary Iraqis as fresh protests erupted across the country. The capital and many southern cities have witnessed demonstrations in recent weeks calling for provision of basic services, the trial of corrupt politicians, and the shakeup of a system riddled with graft and incompetence. Tens of thousands of demonstrators filled Baghdad's Tahrir Square on Friday in what a senior security official called the biggest protest of the summer #India #Islam #Technology #Crime #Latin America #crisis #Entertainment

ANKARA Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu appointed nationalist and pro-Kurdish opposition politicians to an interim power-sharing cabinet on Friday, but left his finance and economy ministers unchanged in a team dominated by ruling party loyalists. Feridun Sinirlioglu, undersecretary at the foreign ministry since 2009, was named as the new foreign minister, a critical post as the NATO member takes on a frontline role in the U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State. #Business #India #Technology #Middle East #Europe #Argentina #United Kingdom
