  • Frenchman shouts "Allahu Akbar" as he stabs UK woman to death in Australia - police

    By Matt Siegel SYDNEY (Reuters) - A 29-year-old Frenchman shouted "Allahu Akbar" (God is Greatest) as he stabbed a British woman to death and wounded two people at a backpackers' hotel in northern Queensland, police said on Wednesday. The man was in Australia on a valid tourist visa and had no known links to radical groups such as Islamic State, which has urged its followers to attack civilians with knives or other readily available weapons, police said. "Initial inquiries indicate that comments which may be construed of being of an extremist nature were made by the alleged offender," Queensland Police Service Deputy Commissioner Steve Gollschewski told reporters.

    On Monday, Ryan Lochte's bizarre robbery story during the Rio Olympics seemingly hit rock bottom when all four of his sponsors dumped him as a spokesperson. If it seems as if the four companies — Speedo, Ralph Lauren, Airweave, and Gentle Hair Removal — acted fast in dumping Lochte, it's because they did.

  • Inadequate euro zone reforms could force ECB to act - Coeure

    A failure of euro zone government to enact badly needed fiscal and structural reform could force the European Central Bank to ease policy further to meet its inflation mandate, Executive Board member Benoit Coeure said on Tuesday. Growth is picking up and will continue to accelerate but the recovery is not as strong as the ECB would like and governments' fiscal policy has not matched the Bank's monetary stimulus efforts, Coeure, a top lieutenant of ECB President Mario Draghi told a conference. Hoping to stave off deflation and kick start private sector growth, the ECB has cut rates deep into negative territory, given banks free loans and is buying 80 billion euros worth of assets per month.

  • Scottish economy to see 2-11 billion pounds Brexit hit, government says

    Leaving the European Union will sap Scotland's economy by between 1.7 and 11.2 billion pounds ($14.76 billion) by 2030, depending on which new trade relationship Britain chooses, the Scottish government said on Tuesday. Presenting the figures, Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said she was seeking "in good faith" to negotiate the Scottish chapter of the terms under which Britain leaves the EU, but would keep Scottish independence from the UK as an option. "The old argument that the UK somehow delivers financial security for Scotland no longer holds water," she told a news conference.
