Head of Church of England hopeful vote will back women bishops

LONDON (Reuters) - The Archbishop of Canterbury said he was hopeful that the Church of England's governing body would approve women bishops when it votes on the issue this week. Justin Welby, spiritual leader of the world's 80 million Anglicans, said the general public would find it "almost incomprehensible" should the General Synod fail to support the move on Monday. #Yahoo! #wcnts #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #cookie #values #rco #aut #typeof-registered

Israel deploys more missile interceptors, Gaza death toll up to 125

GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel rushed an eighth missile interceptor battery into service on Saturday to counter stronger-than-expected rocket fire from Gaza as the military pounded positions in the Palestinian enclave for a fifth day, killing 19 people, medics said. The Jewish state kept options open for a possible ground offensive into densely populated Gaza despite international pressure to negotiate a ceasefire in the conflict, which has killed 125 people in the Islamist-ruled enclave since Tuesday.

Magnitude 6.8 quake, small tsunami hit east Japan, no damage

TOKYO (Reuters) - A magnitude 6.8 earthquake hit off eastern Japan on Saturday morning, the Japan Meteorological Agency said, with minor tsunami of up to 20 cm but no reports of damage along the northeast coast that was ravaged by the catastrophic March 2011 tsunami. No irregularities were reported at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, which was damaged in the 2011 disaster in the worst nuclear accident since Ukraine's Chernobyl in 1986. The quake registered a moderate 4 on the Japanese seismic scale of 1-7, meaning that major damage was unlikely. #Yahoo! #content #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #cookie #rco #aut #rch #typeof-registered #cnt
