Pro-Russian rebels erected new barricades on the streets of Donetsk on Monday, preparing to make a stand in the city of a million people after losing their bastion in the town of Slaviansk in the worst defeat of their three-month uprising. Occasional bursts of gunfire could be heard in the distance from the centre of Donetsk, where residents said they were now living in fear of a potential battle between government forces and the separatist gunmen now out in force. Ukraine's richest man, Rinat Ahmetov, pleaded with the government on Monday not to bomb his home city. Local authorities say thousands of residents have left Donetsk, but most have nowhere to go. The Kiev government has said it will act quickly to seize back more territory from the rebels after re-taking Slaviansk over the weekend in what President Petro Poroshenko called a turning point in the conflict. Rebels retreating from Slaviansk, some driving armoured vehicles flying Russian flags, drove 110 km (65 miles) south into Donetsk over the weekend. More»

Afghan presidential contender Abdullah Abdullah's camp rejected preliminary results of last month's run-off election on Monday as a "coup" against the people, putting him on a dangerous collision course with his rival, Ashraf Ghani. The Independent Election Commission announced on Monday that Ghani won the June 14 second round with 56.44 percent of the vote, according to preliminary results. The tally might change when the final official numbers come out on July 22. Abdullah's camp responded angrily, saying the result was invalid because it did not throw out all the fraudulent votes. "We don't accept the results which were announced today and we consider this as a coup against people's votes," said Mujib Rahman Rahimi, a spokesman for Abdullah's campaign. His rejection sets the stage for a possible bloody standoff between ethnic groups or even secession of parts of the fragile country, which is already deeply divided along tribal lines. More»

Hundreds of flights were cancelled in Japan and more than 500,000 people urged to evacuate as a powerful typhoon brought torrential rain and high winds to southwestern islands and was forecast to reach Tokyo later in the week. Typhoon Neoguri weakened from its original status as a super typhoon but remained intense, with gusts of more than 250 km per hour (155 mph). It was powering towards the Okinawa island chain where emergency rain and high-seas warnings were in effect. The storm will be at its most powerful as it passes Okinawa, some 1,600 km (1,000 miles) southwest of Tokyo on Tuesday, but the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) warned of heavy rains and potential flooding in Kyushu, the westernmost of Japan's main islands, as well as heavy rain in the rest of the nation as the storm turns east. "People must take the utmost caution," Keiji Furuya, state minister in charge of disaster management, told a news conference. One man was missing after his boat was swamped by high waves, NHK national television said. Several people suffered minor injuries from falls. More than 50,000 households in Okinawa lost power and an oil refinery halted operations. Television footage showed street lights rocking in high winds and branches being blown down largely deserted streets. More»

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Monday allegations that a German man worked as a double agent for U.S. intelligence were serious and, if true, were a clear contradiction of what cooperation between partners is supposed to be about. The case risks further straining ties with Washington, which have been sorely tested by revelations last year of large-scale snooping on Germany by the U.S. National Security Agency. "If the reports are correct it would be a serious case," Merkel told a news conference in Beijing, standing next to Chinese Premier Li Keqiang. "If the allegations are true, it would be for me a clear contradiction as to what I consider to be trusting cooperation between agencies and partners." The White House and State Department have so far declined to comment on the arrest of a 31-year-old employee of Germany's BND foreign intelligence agency. According to intelligence and political sources, the man admits passing documents to a U.S. contact. More»

China's economic growth quickened in the second quarter from the previous three months, but further modest government support measures will still be needed, Premier Li Keqiang said on Monday. Speaking at a news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who is visiting Beijing, Li said the Chinese economy still faces downward pressure and that the government will increase its usage of targeted measures to boost growth. His cautiously optimistic remarks may boost market confidence ahead of China's second-quarter economic report due on July 16. Analysts polled by Reuters expects China's growth for the April-June period to have steadied at 7.4 percent. "China's economic performance in the second quarter has improved from that in the first quarter. However, we cannot lower our guard against downward pressures," Li said. More»

Afghanistan will announce preliminary results of a June 14 presidential election run-off as planned on Monday, an election commission spokeswoman said, seeming to quash speculation that the announcement might be delayed again. The two candidates, Abdullah Abdullah and Ashraf Ghani, have clashed over the vote, and refusal by either of them to accept the outcome could plunge Afghanistan into a dangerous crisis and split the country along ethnic lines. The results have already been delayed once to give the authorities more time to investigate allegations of mass fraud and speculation has been rife that the announcement might be put off yet again. But on Monday, the Independent Election Commission said it would stick to its original plan. "The Independent Election Commission will announce preliminary results of the Afghan Presidential runoff today at 2 p.m. (0930 GMT),” said Marzia Seddiqi Salim, an IEC spokeswoman. More»

Global economic activity should strengthen in the second half of this year and accelerate in 2015 although momentum could be weaker than expected, IMF chief Christine Lagarde said on Sunday, adding that the Fund did not expect a sharp slowdown in China. Lagarde said central banks' accommodative policies could have only limited impact on demand and that countries should also act to boost growth by investing in infrastructure, education and health, provided their debt stays sustainable. The IMF's update of its global economic outlook, expected later this month, will be slightly different from the forecasts published in April, she said. "Global activity is picking up but the momentum could be less strong than we had expected because potential growth is weaker and investment ... remains subdued." Lagarde estimated that growth in China this year would be between 7 and 7.5 percent. More»

Gunmen killed at least 29 people in two separate attacks in coastal Kenya overnight, the interior ministry said on Sunday. "There were two attacks in Lamu and Tana River last night. In Lamu we have nine people dead and in Tana River we have 20. The number could rise," Mwenda Njoka, a spokesman for the ministry, said by telephone. More»

Ukrainian forces routed pro-Russian rebels in a flashpoint area of eastern Ukraine on Saturday and raised the country's blue and yellow flag again over what had for months been the separatist redoubt of Slaviansk. A Reuters reporter saw a convoy of about 20 military transport vehicles and buses filled with armed rebels driving out of Kramatorsk where they had gone after apparently fleeing Slaviansk 20 km (12 miles) to the north. About 100-150 Ukrainian troops patrolled the center of Slaviansk and some soldiers were bringing out weapons and ammunition from one of the administration buildings the rebels had been using as a headquarters. Shooting could be heard from the outskirts of the town which had served as a stronghold for rebel forces command, and one Ukrainian soldier said the city was not yet fully under government control. Newly-appointed Defense Minister Valery Heletey appeared confident in reporting to Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. More»

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on Saturday ordered the army to raise the national flag in the separatist stronghold of Slaviansk, eastern Ukraine, after hearing reports of military successes there, the presidential website said. Earlier, Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said a large number of pro-Russian separatists had fled the flashpoint city following sustained fire from Ukrainian forces. Poroshenko's website said the newly appointed head of the armed forces general staff had told him separatist fighters came under mortar fire as they tried to break through government forces' lines. The separatists had lost one tank and other armored vehicles. "The President gave the order ... for the state flag to be raised on Slaviansk's town council offices," the website said, referring to one of the main buildings where the rebels had been based. More»
