Syrian insurgents seize 3 towns

23 July 2014 07:54:09 WN.com - Mideast News

Fighters from the Nusra Front, Al Qaeda’s official affiliate in Syria, have seized three strategic towns on the border with Turkey in a major blow to US-backed moderate rebels. Nusra’s seizure of Izmarin, Salkin and Harem in Syria’s Idlib province came only four days after the group seized Darkoush, another border town, from the Syrian Revolutionary Front, a moderate group that is part of the Western-backed Free Syrian Army. The move appears to be part of an effort by Nusra to add new area to what it has called its emirate in northern Syria — a designation the Qaeda-affiliate made in response to the declaration last month of an Islamic caliphate in Iraq and Syria by...

The secret world of Baghdad's tattoo parlours

23 July 2014 07:54:09 WN.com - Mideast News

To get to Dante's lair, you have to walk down an alley, up the stairs and along a corridor of a dilapidated shopping center in Baghdad's central Karrada district. Inside a dimly lit room there on a recent, sweltering night, I found a group of tough-looking young men and teenagers gathered around a comrade who was struggling to remain stoic despite the pain. Dante, 24, our protagonist, was hard at work, drilling a tattoo of the Shiite saint Ali into the young man's arm. Photographer Max Becherer and I had come to meet Dante - with the help of our young driver, Osama - to see a different side of Iraq than its grinding political violence. Of course, almost no place in Iraq is immune from the...

MH17: What the black boxes will reveal

23 July 2014 07:53:04 WN.com - Europe News

The final five minutes recorded on the black boxes of doomed Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 will be critical to the analysis conducted by air-crash investigators, experts believe. After nearly a week missing in action, the black boxes were finally handed over to international investigators on Tuesday night. There are two components to the black box; the cockpit flight recorder which records audio in the pilots' quarters, and the data recorder - which takes in all technical details of a flight, including altitude, pressurisation and flight deviations, among thousands of other details. "It would have recorded the sound of the explosion, which under forensic analysis, would...

SEC poised to end $1 a share for some money funds

23 July 2014 07:51:29 WN.com - World News

WASHINGTON — Regulators are expected to vote Wednesday to end a longtime staple of the investment industry — the fixed $1 share price for money-market mutual funds — at least for some money funds used by big investors. The idea is to minimize the risk of a mass withdrawal from the funds during a financial panic. The Securities and Exchange Commission may also vote to let money funds block withdrawals during periods of stress or impose new fees for withdrawals. The "breaking of the buck" by a large money fund during the 2008 crisis stoked a run on some other funds and forced the government to intervene to restore confidence. Under the new rules, the share prices...
