  • Trump deepens attack on former Miss Universe, Clinton calls him 'unhinged'

    By Doina Chiacu WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump deepened his attacks on a former beauty queen Alicia Machado on Friday, calling her "disgusting" and alleging the existence of a sex tape as he refused to back away from an issue that threatens to damage his already weak standing among women and Hispanics. Trump was quickly and sharply rebuked by his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, and by Machado, a Venezuelan-born former Miss Universe who was criticized by Trump for gaining weight after she won the crown in 1996. Clinton called the Republican candidate "unhinged." Clinton had raised Trump's treatment of Machado during the two candidates' first debate on Monday night as an example of how he views women.

  • Bosnian Muslim politician wages veiled fight against prejudice

    By Daria Sito-Sucic ZENICA, Bosnia (Reuters) - Politicians across Europe are calling for a ban on the Islamic veil but Bosnian Muslim Indira Sinanovic is defying the trend as well as widespread prejudice in her own country, becoming the first fully-veiled woman here to run for public office. Sinanovic, 37, wears the niqab - a garment that covers the hair and all the face apart from the eyes - and her aim if elected to the council in her central Bosnian hometown of Zavidovici is to battle prejudice and social exclusion. Bosnia has no laws against the public wearing of the niqab and the burqa, clothes that have come to be associated with a fundamentalist reading of Islam, but a ban on court officials wearing headscarves has made Sinanovic and other activists wary.

  • London to launch inquiry into foreign property ownership - report

    London's mayor Sadiq Khan will launch an inquiry into foreign ownership of property in the British capital which has helped push up housing costs, the Guardian newspaper cited him as saying on Thursday. "It's clear we need to better understand the different roles that overseas money plays in London's housing market, the scale of what's going on, and what action we can take to support development and help Londoners find a home," the Guardian quoted Khan as saying. "That's why we are commissioning the most thorough research on this matter ever undertaken in Britain – the biggest look of its kind at this issue – so we can figure out exactly what can be done." London property prices rose more than 12 percent in the 12 months to July after notching up annual gains of around 20 percent in mid-2014, according to official data.

  • UK consumer confidence surges to pre-Brexit levels - survey

    British consumer morale rocketed back to pre-Brexit levels in September, a survey found, confounding expectations that the vote to leave the EU would wreak more lasting damage on Briton's willingness to spend. Market research firm GfK's gauge of consumer confidence suffered its sharpest drop in over 26 years in July as economists said Brexit would pitch the economy into recession, but data suggests Britain has avoided a rapid slump. The GfK index, based on an online poll of 2,000 people, rose to -1 in September from -7 in August - the biggest increase since June last year and restoring levels seen in the months before the June 23 referendum.
