Royal Dutch Shell launched a long-anticipated sale of most of its stake in Australia's Woodside Petroleum Ltd on Tuesday, looking to reap about $5.7 billion as it moves to focus on developing its own gas assets in Australia. The selldown, which reduces Shell's holding to 4.5 percent from 23.1 percent, removes uncertainty that has weighed on Woodside's share price since Shell sold a third of its stake in 2010 and flagged it was not a long term holder. As part of the deal, Woodside will buy back and cancel half the shares that Shell is selling, which Australia's top petroleum producer said would effectively boost its earnings per share by 6 percent. "It's probably good. It removes the overhang and gets rid of a lazy balance sheet and they can get on with life," said Pengana Capital portfolio manager Tim Schroeders. The reduction in Shell's stake marks a milestone in a long retreat from a company that it had tried to take over in 2001. That deal was ultimately blocked by the Australian government after Woodside argued that Shell may focus on offshore developments at the expense of Australian projects. More»

President Barack Obama considered options for military action to support Iraq's besieged government on Monday but made no decision on the U.S. response to a Sunni militant onslaught that has threatened to tear the country apart. Obama, who discussed the crisis with his top national security advisers, has made U.S. action contingent on Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's taking steps to broaden his Shi'ite-dominated government. "The president will continue to consult with his national security team in the days to come," the White House said, without elaborating. A senior U.S. official said Obama had not yet decided on a course of action. Militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant group have routed Baghdad's army and seized the north of the country in the past week, threatening to dismember Iraq and unleash all-out sectarian warfare with no regard for national borders.

China sentenced three people to death on Monday for a deadly attack at Beijing's Tiananmen Square last October, state television reported, an incident blamed by the government on Islamist militants. Another attacker was given a life sentence, and four others received jail terms ranging from five to 20 years. Five people were killed and 40 hurt when a car plowed into a crowd at the northern edge of Tiananmen Square and burst into flames. Those killed included two bystanders and three people in the car. Two of those sentenced, named in a state media report, appeared to have ethnic Uighur names. The western province of Xinjiang is the traditional home of the Turkic-speaking Uighurs, and China has blamed previous knife and bomb attacks on separatists who seek to establish an independent state there called East Turkestan. China has been on edge since a suicide bombing last month killed 39 people at a market in Xinjiang's capital of Urumqi. More»

The death toll in an attack by gunmen on the Kenyan coastal town of Mpeketoni rose to at least 48 people, the Kenya Red Cross and police said on Monday. Militants targeted two hotels, a bank and a police station with guns and at least one explosive device. The assault on Sunday night was the latest in a string of attacks that have hurt Kenya's tourism business, a key source of foreign exchange. Mpeketoni lies north of Kenya's main port of Mombasa.

Russian gas exporter Gazprom said on Monday Ukraine had failed to pay at least part of its gas debts by a 0600 GMT deadline and would now have to pay up front for deliveries, suggesting that supplies could be cut. Kiev and Moscow failed to agree overnight on the price of future gas deliveries in a deal needed to secure flows to Ukraine and safeguard onward supplies to the European Union. A gas cut would further complicate efforts to try to end the worst crisis in relations between the two neighbors since Soviet times and find a truce in eastern Ukraine, where Ukrainian troops are fighting pro-Russian rebels. Russian officials said Alexei Miller, Gazprom's chief executive, and Energy Minister Alexander Novak would meet President Vladimir Putin later on Monday and then a decision would be taken on the gas issue.

President Barack Obama on Saturday intervened to end a transit strike in the greater Philadelphia area, establishing an emergency board to force the two sides to negotiate. The move, at the behest of Republican Governor Tom Corbett, came hours after about 440 engineers and electricians who operate trains that connect Philadelphia and its suburbs walked off the job. “That’s it. The strike is over," said Arthur Davidson, spokesman for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, one of the two unions on strike. The strike began at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, when a mandatory 30-day cooling off period expired in contract talks between the workers' unions and the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority. The 13 regional rail lines stopped by the strike normally provide about 126,000 trips per weekday, with service stretching from the city's northern suburbs to Wilmington, Delaware. More»

China respects Taiwan's social system and values, a senior Chinese leader said on Sunday, in the wake of sweeping protests in Taiwan over a controversial trade deal. Yu Zhengsheng, China's top political adviser and a member of the elite Politburo Standing Committee, said problems in cross-Straits relations should be resolved by China giving "more understanding, respect and consideration from the perspective of a family" to Taiwan, the official Xinhua news agency reported. Yu made the remarks at a forum on cross-Strait ties in the coastal city of Xiamen. "We respect their identification with the current social system, values and lifestyles; and we know that some friends still harbor misgivings on the development of the cross-Strait relations," Yu said, according to Xinhua. China's top official in charge of relations with Taiwan is to make his first visit to the self-ruled island this month. More»

Eleven people, including election workers, were killed in Afghanistan when a roadside bomb blew up their bus, the governor of the northern province of Samangan said on Sunday. The blast came on Saturday evening, after polls closed in a second-round, run-off vote to elect a successor to President Hamid Karzai, in what is hoped will mark the country's first democratic transfer of power.

Volkswagen Middle East has reported record growth across its retail network with the opening of six showrooms and a series of service facilities in the first half of 2014. The $20 million development of the brand's retail network saw sustained demand across the model line-up in the region, the German car maker said in a statement. The company said it has opened six new showrooms in Beirut, Doha, Dubai, Erbil, Fujairah and Sharjah alongside new service centres in Erbil, Muscat, Fujairah and Sharjah. The network will continue to expand throughout 2014, as Volkswagen Middle East starts construction on the world's largest Volkswagen showroom and service facility in Kuwait this summer. In Abu Dhabi, ground will also be broken for a third Volkswagen showroom in the UAE capital with future facilities marked for development in Oman. More»

Forty-nine Ukrainian military personnel were killed when rebels shot down a cargo plane during the night over the airport of the eastern city of Luhansk, a military spokesman said on Saturday. Luhansk is one of the centers of a pro-Russian separatist movement in Ukraine's east which has risen up against the pro-European government in Kiev. "On the night of June 13-14, the terrorists...fired from an anti-aircraft weapon and a large caliber machine gun, shooting down an Il-76 military transport aircraft ... as it was about to land," the Defence Ministry said in a statement. It gave no death toll but a military spokesman, Vladislav Seleznyov, later said by telephone that 49 had been killed. The toll would be the biggest suffered by government forces in a single incident since Kiev started a military operation to try to defeat the insurgency in east Ukraine, which the rebels want to be part of Russia. Scores of people, including rebels, civilians and government troops, have been killed in the violence since April. More»
