KHARKIV, Ukraine (AP) — Two more military aircraft carrying remains of victims from the Malaysian plane disaster arrived in the Netherlands on Thursday, while Australian and Dutch diplomats joined to promote a plan for a U.N. team to secure the crash site which has been controlled by pro-Russian rebels. Human remains continue to be found a full week after the plane went down, underlining concerns about the halting and chaotic recovery effort at the sprawling site spread across farmland in eastern Ukraine. Armed separatists control the area and have hindered access by investigators.

S.Korea lab fails to find out how ferry owner died

Lee Han-young, left, a head of Forensic Medicine Department of the National Forensic Service briefs to the media at the National Forensic Service in Seoul, South Korea, Friday, July 25, 2014. South Korea's state-run forensic lab said Friday it has failed to find out how a fugitive billionaire blamed for April's ferry disaster died. Police said Tuesday that a badly decomposed body found in a rural area last month was identified as Yoo Byung-eun. Police cited DNA and fingerprint tests taken by the National Forensic Service. Authorities had sought the 73-year-old, believing he owned the sunken ferry and that his alleged corruption may have contributed to the disaster. (AP Photo/Lee Jin-man) SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea's state-run forensic lab said Friday it has failed to determine the cause of death for a fugitive billionaire blamed for April's ferry disaster, amid mounting public criticism that authorities didn't identify his body for a long time and still continued a massive manhunt for him.


Groundwater levels drop in Southwestern U.S. in ongoing drought

A tire rests on the dry bed of Lake Mendocino, a key Mendocino County reservoir, in Ukiah Underground stores of water in the southwestern United States have receded dramatically amid ongoing drought that has parched states from Oklahoma to the Pacific Coast and is costing California billions in lost crops and jobs, a new study shows. The study released Thursday by the University of California, Irvine, shows that groundwater in the Colorado River basin has dropped by 40 million acre-feet over the past five years, the equivalent of two of the nation's largest reservoirs. "If drought conditions like this continue, there is a possibility we will entirely deplete our groundwater storage," said researcher Stephanie Castle, the report's author. Using satellite data, Castle tracked the ebbing water in the Colorado River basin, which stretches through seven states.

Pope Francis blesses Sudanese Christian Meriam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag and her daughter Maya during a private audience at the Vatican, as shown in this Osservatore Romano photo from July 24, 2014 A Sudanese Christian woman whose death sentence for renouncing Islam sparked a global outcry that eventually led to an acquittal, met Pope Francis after arriving in Italy en route to the United States. Meriam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag and her family were received by the Argentine pontiff at his home for a 30-minute meeting Thursday in which he thanked her for her "courageous testament of faith" and her "tenacity", the Vatican said in a statement. Ishag and her American husband Daniel Wani in turn thanked Francis for the "great support and comfort" they had taken from "the pope's and many other believers' prayers". The White House in Washington said it was "delighted" Ishaq is now "safe and free and will soon be traveling to the United States".

Asian shares inch down from this week's three-year highs

A pedestrian holding an umbrella walks past an electronic board showing the graph of the recent fluctuations of Japan's Nikkei average outside a brokerage in Tokyo By Lisa Twaronite TOKYO (Reuters) - Asian shares pulled away from this week's three-year highs on Friday after a mostly flat day on Wall Street, though a fresh S&P closing record and upbeat U.S. employment data underpinned sentiment. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was down about 0.3 percent in early trade, though still on track for solid weekly gain of more than 1 percent, while Japan's Nikkei stock average added 0.6 percent, poised to rise 1 percent for the week. Fujito said that long-only investors have stayed on the sidelines as geopolitical concerns in Gaza and Ukraine have curbed their appetite for risk.

Japan consumer inflation eases in June as weak yen impact fades

People are reflected in mirrors at an entrance of a shopping complex in Tokyo By Leika Kihara TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's core consumer inflation eased slightly in the year to June, highlighting the challenges the central bank faces in meeting its 2 percent inflation target sometime next year. The BOJ expects inflation to pick up again as a tight labor market lifts wages. "Exports are weak and household spending - hit by the April sales tax hike - won't bounce back so strongly, which means the economy lacks a strong driver ahead," said Yoshiki Shinke, chief economist at Dai-ichi Life Research Institute. "The economy may not recover as strongly as expected, which will certainly affect price moves," he said, predicting that the BOJ may ease policy in April next year if inflation fails to approach 2 percent by then.


Family feud sparks revolt at grocery store chain

Shoppers encounter empty shelves as they shop Thursday, July 24, 2014 at the Market Basket supermarket in Haverhill, Mass. A decades-long family feud, which brought about the ouster of Arthur T. Demoulas as CEO of the privately held company, led to a worker revolt, customer boycotts and empty shelves in the grocery chain's stores in Maine, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. More than 100 Massachusetts legislators and mayors, Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley, and New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan have publicly supported the employees. (AP Photo) WEST BRIDGEWATER, Mass. (AP) — It's been called a David vs. Goliath story, a "Tale of Two Arthurs" and even the "ultimate Greek tragedy," but the characters in this drama are not Biblical or literary figures.

In this photo taken July 15, 2014, Pastor Tao Chongyin, left, speaks with church member Fan Liang'an in front of the Wuxi Christian Church with the words "Church of Jesus" in red, in Longwan, Wenzhou in eastern China's Zhejiang province. Across Zhejiang province, which hugs China’s rocky southeastern coast, authorities have toppled, or threatened to topple, crosses at more than 130 churches. “I won’t let them take down the cross even if it means they would shoot me dead,” said Fan Liang’an, 73, whose grandfather helped build the church in 1924. (AP Photo/Didi Tang) WUXI VILLAGE, China (AP) — The battle started when a government-hired crew tore down the metal cross atop the one-room church in this village surrounded by rice paddies last month.


Colorado appeals court denies bid to block gay marriages in Boulder County

By Keith Coffman DENVER (Reuters) - A Colorado appeals court on Thursday denied a motion by the state's top lawyer seeking to block a county clerk from issuing same-sex marriage licenses until the long-running legal battle is resolved by higher courts. In its ruling, the Colorado Court of Appeals said Attorney General John Suthers had not "established the factors required" for it to reverse a lower court's decision allowing a county clerk to issue licenses to gay couples. The decision by the three-judge appeals court panel comes after judges at the state and federal level have both ruled Colorado's ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional, but stayed their decisions pending challenges to higher courts. The ruling is the latest twist in a legal spat between Suthers, a Republican, and Hillary Hall, the clerk in Democratic-leaning Boulder County.

Federal inspector to examine Alaska tour train derailment site

By Steve Quinn JUNEAU Alaska (Reuters) - A federal inspector has been sent to examine the Alaska site where a tourism train derailed this week, leaving 19 people with minor injuries, a U.S. Transportation Department spokesman said on Thursday. Department spokesman Kevin Thompson said the agency had yet to determine whether a full-fledged federal investigation into the White Pass & Yukon Route Railway’s Wednesday afternoon accident was warranted. "Any injury connected to our rail operations, whether to our passengers or employees, is always considered serious," company president John Finlayson said in a statement. The accident happened during a round trip between Skagway, Alaska, and Canada, a route taken annually by thousands of tourists along the region’s historic Klondike Gold Rush.

PetroChina reconsiders sale of natural gas pipeline assets: sources

File photo of PetroChina's logo at a gas station in Beijing By Chen Aizhu and Charlie Zhu BEIJING/HONG KONG (Reuters) - PetroChina is reconsidering a plan to auction off its multi-billion dollar natural gas pipeline unit, and could instead sell it to an affiliate, three people who were briefed on the matter by the Chinese energy giant told Reuters. Selling PetroChina Eastern Pipelines Co Ltd to the affiliate, 50 percent owned by PetroChina, would enable China's largest energy producer to maintain control over the national gas grid as well as raise cash to fund oil and gas exploration. PetroChina controls more than 80 percent of China's natural gas grid, and some privately owned domestic gas companies have complained this monopoly hurts their business. "It's almost a done decision to let the joint venture... acquire Eastern Pipelines," said a Beijing-based energy industry executive, who declined to be named as the matter remained confidential.

Special Report: Inside Xi Jinping's purge of China's oil mandarins

File photo of then China's Public Security Minister Zhou reacting as he attends the Hebei delegation discussion sessions at the 17th National Congress of the CPC in Beijing By David Lague , Charlie Zhu and Benjamin Kang Lim BEIJING/HONG KONG (Reuters) - Oil executive Jiang Jiemin rose to power in Communist China in time-honored fashion: by hitching his star to a mighty mentor. In Jiang's case, that patron was another oil man, Zhou Yongkang, who went on to become the chief of China's internal security apparatus and one of the country's most powerful men. Like Zhou before him, Jiang rose to the top of country’s biggest oil producer, China National Petroleum Corporation. In March last year Jiang ascended even higher, when he was named to run the agency that oversees all of China's biggest state-owned companies.


Rise of Islamic State tests Syrian army strategy

Militant Islamist fighters on a tank take part in a military parade along the streets of northern Raqqa province By Sylvia Westall BEIRUT (Reuters) - The growing power of the ultra-hardline Islamic State means the Syrian army is now having to confront a group it has until now been reluctant to attack for political reasons. The emergence of the al Qaeda offshoot, formerly known as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), has so far allowed President Bashar al-Assad to present himself to the world as a bulwark against Sunni Islamist radicals. At the same time, the group's tendency to fight more moderate rebel forces also helped to divide the opposition, making it easier for Assad's forces to recapture territory lost in earlier periods of Syria's civil war. Now that Islamic State's fighters have gained momentum in Syria, boosted by equipment seized in a rapid offensive next door in Iraq, the army may need to become more confrontational with the group if it wants to avoid losing territory to it.

Gunmen kill 15 civilians travelling in central Afghanistan

Three former Taliban fighters carry their weapons during a government peace and reconciliation ceremony in Herat on January 11, 2014 Suspected Taliban gunmen stopped two vehicles in central Afghanistan and shot dead 15 passengers at the side of the road, officials said Friday, in the latest attack to highlight the growing civilian toll from violence. Only one man escaped after the gunmen held up two vehicles on a road in Ghor province and shot dead 11 men, three women and one child. "Armed gunmen stopped two vehicles and shot dead the passengers," Abdul Hai Khatibi, spokesman for the governor of Ghor province, told AFP. Afghan politics is mired in a bitter election dispute between poll rivals Ashraf Ghani and Abdullah Abdullah that threatens to trigger instability and revive ethnic tensions that ravaged the country during the 1992-1996 civil war.

Official at center of Chinese oil purge was a politic businessman

By Charlie Zhu and David Lague HONG KONG (Reuters) - Throughout his career at China's biggest oil producer, Jiang Jiemin was careful to put politics before business, say colleagues who worked closely with the purged executive. In strongly supporting government energy strategy, often at the expense of profitability, the former chief of China National Petroleum Company was a vocal proponent of what he called national and social responsibility for state-owned enterprises, according to his speeches and public statements. Jiang's former colleagues say the Shandong University-trained economist is a sharply different personality than some of the rough and tumble engineers and geologists at the top of CNPC. "More of a politician than an oil man." His polish set him apart from colleagues like current CNPC boss Zhou Jiping, a garrulous engineer widely known and liked in the global oil industry.

Indonesia's constitutional court ready to take on election result challenge

Head of Constitutional Court Zoelva speaks with Reuters during an interview in his office in Jakarta By Fransiska Nangoy and Randy Fabi JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesia's top court is prepared to hear a case challenging the result of this month's presidential election, well aware that its reputation is on the line after its top judge was jailed for corruption, his successor said. The losing presidential candidate, Prabowo Subianto, has alleged mass cheating in the closely fought July 9 election and has said he will challenge the result in the Constitutional Court. "We realize that scrutiny of the Constitutional Court is high and that after Akil's case there are doubts about us," the head of the Constitutional Court, Hamdan Zoelva, told Reuters in an interview late on Thursday. He was referring to his predecessor Akil Mochtar who was sentenced to life in prison last month for accepting bribes related to judgments on other election disputes.
