Libya recovers 105 bodies after migrant boat sinks, more feared dead| Reuters

ZUWARA, Libya Libya recovered 105 bodies after a boat packed with migrants sank in the Mediterranean Sea and said almost 100 more people were missing and feared dead. The vessel sank on Thursday after leaving Zuwara, a major launchpad for smugglers shipping migrants to Italy by exploiting a security vacuum in Libya where rival governments are fighting for control four years after the ousting of Muammar Gaddafi. #Middle East #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #Entertainment #Foreign policy #opinion

French Socialists see reason to hope with Greens in turmoil| Reuters

LA ROCHELLE, France French Socialists welcomed a decision by two senior Green lawmakers to split away and create a new movement to support them, saying on Friday it would strengthen the Left's hand in regional and presidential elections. The extra support could be key for Socialist President Francois Hollande's chances to get re-elected in 2017 as well as for regional elections in December. The Greens were a junior ally in Hollande's government until they decided last year to leave, angered by what they said was a move toward more centrist economic and social policies #United States #Middle East #United Kingdom #Latin America #Entertainment
