  • Rise in Nigerian sex slavery in Italy fuelled by violence and "juju" magic

    By Tom Esslemont CATANIA, Italy (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - When Nigerian teenager Beauty arrived in Sicily after crossing the Mediterranean from North Africa last year, she had only hours to phone the man who trafficked her - or risk lethal repercussions for family members back home. Before her journey through Niger to Libya, a spiritual priest practicing a form of black magic known in Nigeria as "juju" had forced her to swear an oath of obedience to her trafficker. The threat of a "curse" if she broke her oath and the possibility of violence by her traffickers at home in Benin City, a southern Nigerian hub for human trafficking, were enough to trap her into sex slavery.

  • Germany risks becoming 'world's greatest ATM' after Brexit - Liam Fox

    Germany risks becoming the world's biggest cash machine after Brexit because it may end up paying for a failing European Union that is in danger of imploding, Britain's trade minister said on Thursday. Liam Fox, a leading pro-Brexit campaigner during the referendum campaign, is one of several ministers in Prime Minister Theresa May's cabinet who are expected to lead London's formal divorce talks from the European Union. Fox said that after Britain, the EU's second largest economy, leaves the bloc, Berlin will lose a key ally in enforcing "economic rigour" and could end up paying for other EU nations.

  • Toyota drops diesel from new model, signals likely phase-out

    By Laurence Frost PARIS (Reuters) - Toyota has decided to drop diesel engines from its new C-HR compact in the wake of Volkswagen's emissions scandal and will probably do the same for future model renewals, the carmaker's second-ranking global executive said on Thursday. The Japanese automaker decided "within the last six to 12 months" not to offer a diesel version of the car, unveiled at the Paris auto show, because demand for the powertrain technology is falling sharply, Executive Vice President Didier Leroy told Reuters in an interview. If faced with a renewal decision today for other models up to and including the larger Auris compact, a Toyota staple, "we would probably do the same thing", Leroy added.

  • 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.

  • U.S. 9/11 law exasperates Saudis, government silent

    By Katie Paul and Hadeel Al Sayegh RIYADH/DUBAI (Reuters) - A U.S. law allowing lawsuits against Saudi Arabia over the Sept. 11 attacks met a stony silence from Riyadh on Thursday but some Saudis bristled, saying the kingdom should curb business and security ties in response. The Senate and House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly on Wednesday to approve legislation that will allow the families of those killed in the 2001 attacks on the United States to seek damages from the Saudi government. Riyadh has always dismissed suspicions that it backed the attackers, who killed nearly 3,000 people under the banner of Islamist militant group al Qaeda.

  • Nissan sets 'hard Brexit' compensation condition for new UK investment

    By Laurence Frost and Costas Pitas PARIS/LONDON (Reuters) - Nissan wants Britain to pledge compensation for any tax barriers resulting from its decision to leave the European Union, or the Japanese automaker could scrap a potential new investment in the country's biggest car plant, its CEO said on Thursday. Carlos Ghosn's remarks indicate growing concern among global carmakers that Britain could be heading towards a so-called 'hard Brexit', which would leave them paying tariffs to export UK-assembled cars to EU markets. Nissan , which builds around a third of Britain's total car output at its plant in Sunderland, northeast England, is due to decide early next year on where to build its next Qashqai sport utility vehicle.

  • Experts warn some painkillers ‘increase the risk of heart failure’

    Common painkillers used by millions of people in the UK can increase the risk of developing heart failure, according to medical experts. A study published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) found that non-selective non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) - like ibuprofen - could increase the risk of being admitted to hospital with a heart problem. Previous studies have linked the drugs to abnormal heart rhythm - which can cause heart failure, and an increased risk of heart attack and stroke if taken regularly.
