  • Trump urges Russia to find Clinton's 'missing' emails, drawing ire

    By Steve Holland and Emily Stephenson MIAMI/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican Donald Trump on Wednesday invited Russia to dig up tens of thousands of "missing" emails from Hillary Clinton's time at the U.S. State Department, prompting political foes to accuse him of dangerously urging a power abroad to spy on the United States. "Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing," Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, told reporters. Clinton, a Democrat who faces Trump in the Nov. 8 U.S. presidential election, responded with a campaign statement alleging he was posing a possible national security threat by encouraging Russian espionage to try to influence the vote.

  • Britain Facing EU Migrant 'Surge', Warn MPs

    Britain could face a "surge" in migration from EU nationals rushing to come in before restrictions are imposed, MPs have warned. The Home Affairs Select Committee is urging Theresa May to impose a "cut-off date" for them to settle permanently in the UK to avoid a spike in applications. In a report published today, the MPs say moves to restrict immigration - as expected after Brexit - will invariably lead to a sharp rise in numbers before the deadline.

The 31-year-old missed out on gold at London 2012, settling for a bronze in the time trial, but looks almost unbeatable at present and will be the man to overcome in the Rio road races. Froome's victory in the Tour's individual time trial last week, a brutal 17km uphill slog, was so dominant that he finished 21 seconds ahead of second-placed Dutchman Tom Dumoulin who could miss Rio after breaking his wrist in France.

  • GlaxoSmithKline invests 275 million pounds in UK despite Brexit

    By Ben Hirschler LONDON (Reuters) - GlaxoSmithKline plans 275 million pounds of new investments at three drug manufacturing sites in Britain, signalling its confidence in the country despite last month's vote to leave the European Union. The decision came as Britain's biggest drugmaker reported better-than-expected quarterly earnings on Wednesday, buoyed by new drug sales and currency gains from a falling pound, which it said could pump up full-year results by 19 percent. GSK, which had argued against Brexit before the referendum, said the UK remained an attractive place for making medicines, thanks to a skilled workforce and relatively low tax rates.

  • Airbus Group takes 1.4 billion euro hit for troop plane, A350 problems

    By Tim Hepher and Cyril Altmeyer PARIS (Reuters) - Airbus Group took a 1.4 billion euro (£1.1 billion) hit for problems with Europe's troubled A400M troop plane and its A350 jetliner on Wednesday, clouding better than expected quarterly profits. Delays in deliveries of another keenly awaited jet, the revamped A320neo jetliner, which competes with Boeing's upcoming 737 MAX, also weighed on Europe's largest aerospace group, whose core profits fell 4 percent in the second quarter. Airbus Group posted 1.03 billion euros of charges for the A400M following gearbox problems and fuselage cracks and 385 million for the A350, whose deliveries have been held up by shortages of seats and, most recently, botched toilet doors.
