Ibrahim Munir, a senior Brotherhood official based in London, told Reuters the departures did not mean a rupture in ties between Qatar and the Brotherhood. #Yahoo! #wcnts #wcntn #cookie #values #rco #rch #cnt

Russia faces new U.S., EU sanctions over Ukraine crisis

BRUSSELS/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - European Union governments agreed on Thursday to begin their new sanctions against Russia over the Ukraine crisis on Friday but could lift them next month if Moscow abides by a fragile truce, while the United States prepared its own fresh sanctions.

EU must keep up pressure on Russia over Ukraine, Britain says

MILAN (Reuters) - The European Union must keep up pressure on Russia over its involvement in the Ukrainian war because sanctions are having an effect, British Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said on Tuesday. EU ambassadors delayed implementation of a new package of sanctions on Russia on Monday to allow time to see if a ceasefire in Ukraine will hold. The unexpected decision laid bare divisions within the 28-nation EU over how energetically to pursue sanctions against Russia, which has already taken trade reprisals and threatened more if the EU tightens sanctions further #Yahoo! #content #wcnts #wcntn #typeof-social #cookie #values #rco #aut #rch #typeof-registered #cnt

Ebola spreads exponentially in Liberia, many more cases soon-WHO

GENEVA/FREETOWN (Reuters) - Liberia, the country worst hit by West Africa's Ebola epidemic, should see thousands of new cases in coming weeks as the virus spreads exponentially, the World Health Organisation (WHO) said on Monday.

The WHO believes it will take six to nine months to contain and may infect up to 20,000 people. #Yahoo! #wcnts #wcntn #undefined #cookie #values #rco #aut #typeof-registered #cnt
