The Taliban stormed a police checkpoint in a northwestern province in Afghanistan and killed nine border guards, while a roadside bombing killed six civilians in the country's southwest, Afghan officials said Thursday. The checkpoint in Badghis province, one of the most dangerous in Afghanistan, came under attack on Wednesday morning, said Mirwais Mirzakwal, the spokesman for the provincial governor. The Taliban raided the site in Bala Murghab district, killing nine border guards inside, he added. Before they fled the scene, the insurgents planted mines around the checkpoint. More»

German train drivers are on strike for a second day, causing scores of cancellations around the country. German rail operator Deutsche Bahn was able to keep some trains running, but the dpa news agency reported Thursday that two-thirds of its long-distance trains and between 40 percent and 85 percent of its local trains were cancelled, depending on the region.  The GDL union, which wants a 5 percent pay increase and shorter working hours, said last week talks with Deutsche Bahn had broken down. The main sticking point has been GDL's insistence that it negotiate not just for train drivers but for other railway staff who are traditionally represented by a larger rival union. The strike is due to end Thursday night for passenger trains and Friday for freight traffic.Source: Associated Press (AP) More»

European Union leaders gathering for an extraordinary summit are facing calls from all sides to take emergency action to save lives in the Mediterranean, where hundreds of migrants are missing and feared drowned in recent days. The leaders will examine a plan to respond to the crisis, after more than 10,000 migrants were plucked from seas between Italy and Libya in a week, and are widely expected to approve swift action.

When is a deadline not really a deadline and a deal not really a deal? When it's to do with Greece's bailout, apparently. The country had an end-of-April date to agree to more reforms in exchange for rescue money its creditors had set aside. But as the country prepares to confront its European creditors on Friday at a meeting in the Latvian capital of Riga, all sides say an agreement is a long way off. More»

Manufacturing activity in Asia's top two economic powerhouses slowed further in April, a disappointing outcome that calls for yet more stimulus and puts pressure on the United States and Europe to do more of the heavy lifting to drive global growth. The flash HSBC/Markit Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) for China fell to a one-year low of 49.2, from 49.6, pushing deeper below the 50-point level that is supposed to separate growth from contraction. "The worse-than-expected PMI suggests downside risks to China's 2015 growth outlook," analysts at Barclays wrote in a note to clients. "We believe downside risks to growth and inflation are materializing given the disappointing Q1 growth rate, and maintain our below-consensus 6.8 percent growth forecast for 2015." The soggy outcome illustrated why the People's Bank of China (PBOC) on Sunday cut the amount of cash that banks must hold as reserves to help spur lending. It slashed the reserve requirements by a bigger-than-expected 100 basis points (bps). More»

Hillary Clinton's family's charities are refiling at least five annual tax returns after a Reuters review found errors in how they reported donations from governments, and said they may audit other Clinton Foundation returns in case of other errors. The foundation and its list of donors have been under intense scrutiny in recent weeks. Republican critics say the foundation makes Clinton, who is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, vulnerable to undue influence. Her campaign team calls these claims "absurd conspiracy theories." The charities' errors generally take the form of under-reporting or over-reporting, by millions of dollars, donations from foreign governments, or in other instances omitting to break out government donations entirely when reporting revenue, the charities confirmed to Reuters.

Pakistan's military says its warplanes have pounded a militant hideout in a troubled tribal region along the Afghan border, killing 22 "terrorists." In a statement released Wednesday, the military said the airstrikes were carried out the night before in the North Waziristan region, where the military launched a major offensive last year. The latest strikes came weeks after the military said it had cleared most of the region of militants, who use the mountainous border area to launch attacks in both countries. The military says it has killed more than 1,200 militants since launching the June 15, 2014 operation in North Waziristan. The North Waziristan tribal region is one of seven tribal regions near the Afghan border where local and foreign militants had found safe haven for years. Source: Associated Press (AP) More»

Much of the transport in Europe's capital, Brussels, came to a halt Wednesday as public sector workers held a one-day strike over Belgian government austerity measures. International train lines like Thalys and Eurostar, the national SNCB railway system, bus and underground services were all hit hard by the strike, which is to run until late Wednesday. The big Brussels Nord station was fully closed and the trains to Brussels from Paris and London were also severely affected, although those between London and Paris were running as normal. Thalys fast trains to Amsterdam, Cologne and Paris were also be hit. "I had a lot of meetings today in Paris," complained Nicolas De Kerangal, a French traveler. "I need to reschedule everything right now, and I will go to there tomorrow." Brussels airport authorities warned travelers to show up early and look for alternative transport, since although flights were unaffected getting to the airport was proving difficult. Postal workers and teachers, as well as some police and fire services, are also set to join the strike. Source: Associated Press (AP) More»

China's work safety watchdog is blaming this month's explosion at a chemical plant in southeast China on the factory's management and failings in local government supervision. The April 6 blast and ensuing hydrocarbon fire at the paraxylene plant in Fujian province left six people hospitalized and renewed discussion on China's social media about the potential dangers of factories that produce the toxic chemical. Huang Yi, spokesman for the State Administration of Work Safety, told reporters Wednesday that the bosses of the Goure PX Plant chose the cheapest bidder to build the facility at the expense of safety. He said a furnace was too close to storage tanks, so when unspecified materials leaked into the furnace because of a broken tube, the blast tore into a tank and caused the fire.

An Islamic extremist with an arsenal of heavy weapons planned an imminent attack on one or more French churches, France's top security official said Wednesday, announcing the arrest of the man who is also accused in the death of a young mother. The 24-year-old computer science student was flagged as a risk by security officials last year, said Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve. More»
