Oxfam's annual income has risen to £401.4m, up £12m, despite the charity seeing a fall in money from its shops. The 3% rise in total income in the year to 31 March included £100.8m from public fundraising, which rose 2.5%, according to Oxfam's annual report. But there was a 2.5% fall to £22.9m in shop income, which Oxfam blamed on a shortage of high quality donated goods. Oxfam GB's head Mark Goldring said the scale of disasters during the year had "stretched" the organisation. The charity said it cut administration and fundraising costs during the period, with 84p in the pound now spent on emergency and development work, up 2p from the previous year. More»

The UN chief Ban Ki-moon has urged the world to get rid of nuclear weapons at a commemoration ceremony marking the 70th anniversary of the US nuclear attack on Nagasaki – the second, and so far the last – bombing in the history of nuclear warfare. “Nagasaki must be the last. We cannot allow any future use of nuclear weapons. Their humanitarian consequences are too great,” Ban Ki-moon’s message said as he addressed thousands through his representative at the Peace Memorial Ceremony. “I wholeheartedly join you in sounding a global rallying cry: No more Nagasakis. No more Hiroshimas,” he added. Demilitarization should be put “back on the agenda of international politics,” believes Ban Ki-moon. “This includes a reduction of military budgets, a moratorium on the development of new types of weapons and a prohibition on militarizing space.” More»

China's consumer inflation rate hit its highest level this year in July, but is still well below the government target of about 3%. The rate edged up to 1.6% from 1.4% the month before because of rising food prices, the government said. Producer prices, which include wholesale and factory price inflation, fell for the 40th month in a row. Analysts say the data points to the need for measures to stimulate the world's second-largest economy. The producer price index was down 5.4% from a year earlier - it had been expected to fall by just 5% in July. More»

South Korea's military threatened retaliation against North Korea on Monday after it accused the North of planting land mines inside the Demilitarised Zone border that wounded two soldiers last week, calling it a cowardly act of provocation. There was evidence to conclude that soldiers from the North crossed the Military Demarcation Line recently to plant the mines, and Pyongyang would be made to "pay a severe price", the South's military said at a news briefing. "We strongly condemn this cowardly act, which would be unthinkable for a normal military," Major General Ku Hong-mo of South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said, calling it a violation of the armistice agreement that ended the 1950-53 Korean War.

At least 21 are dead after Typhoon Soudelor slammed into southeastern mainland China and Taiwan, official agencies said. The storm left 14 people dead in the eastern Chinese cities of Wenzhou and Lishui, where heavy rains triggered mudslides and caused houses to collapse, state news agency Xinhua reported. Across the strait in Taiwan, seven others have been confirmed dead. The storm reached super typhoon status over the ocean, recording peak winds of 180 miles per hour but weakened to a tropical storm before it made landfall. The West Pacific Basin has seen 10 typhoons so far this year. More»

Two attackers opened fire on the U.S. consulate building in Istanbul on Monday while 10 people were injured in a car bombing at a police station overnight, weeks after Turkey launched what it described as a "synchronised war on terror". Police armed with automatic rifles cordoned off streets around the U.S. consulate in the Sariyer district on the European side of the city, following the gun attack there. Local media reports said two attackers, one man and one woman, fled after police fired back. There were no immediate reports of civilian injuries. Broadcaster NTV said police later detained the female suspect, who was wounded in the gunfire. Overnight, a vehicle laden with explosives was used in the attack on the police station in the Istanbul district of Sultanbeyli at around 01:00 on Monday (2200GMT on Sunday), injuring three police officers and seven civilians, police said. Broadcaster CNN Turk said two gunmen and a senior officer from the police bomb squad, who rushed to the scene, were killed in a firefight that continued into Monday morning in the district on the Asian side of the Bosphorus waterway dividing Istanbul.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Sunday marked the 70th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki by renewing his commitment to a nuclear weapons free Japan, following criticism for not making the same pledge on the anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing last week. "As the only nation in the world to have suffered a war-time nuclear attack, I have renewed my resolve to play a leading role in pursuing a world without nuclear weapons and maintain the three non-nuclear principles," Abe said in Nagasaki Peace Park. The "three non-nuclear principles" are Japan's long-standing policy of not possessing or producing nuclear arms and not letting others bring them into the country. Japan's defense minister triggered a new row over controversial security legislation on Wednesday when he said the bills under consideration by parliament would not rule out the military transporting the nuclear weapons of foreign forces. Abe's cabinet adopted a resolution last year reinterpreting the pacifist constitution, drafted by Americans after World War Two, to let Japan exercise collective self-defense, or defend an ally under attack.

A typhoon battered China's east coast on Sunday, killing eight people and forcing authorities to cancel hundreds of flights and evacuate more than 163,000 people. Typhoon Soudelor killed six people in Taiwan earlier on the weekend then moved across the Taiwan Strait and slammed into the mainland's Fujian province late on Saturday. It churned towards the neighboring provinces of Zhejiang and Jiangxi on Sunday, the Xinhua state news agency said. The Tropical Storm Risk website downgraded Soudelor to a tropical storm as it moved inland. Eight people were killed in Hangzhou city, CCTV state television reported, as heavy rain and wind toppled trees and triggered flash floods and mudslides. More»

Indonesia wants the U.S. Federal Reserve to hurry up and raise interest rates because uncertainty over when it will tighten has created downward pressure on the rupiah, the country's chief economics minister said. Sofyan Djalil, coordinating minister for economics, told Reuters that he did not see the rupiah dropping when the U.S. easing does come because the move has been built into market expectations, and in fact the currency is now undervalued. The Federal Reserve has kept rates at a near-zero level since December 2008 as part of its effort to spur the recovery from the 2007-2009 financial crisis. Fed officials are still undecided on whether to raise rates next month. However, data released on Friday showed U.S. non-farm payrolls increased by 215,000 in July, pointing to an improving economy and bolstering the case for a September hike. More»
