  • 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 loved ones 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.

  • 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.

  • Congress rejects Obama veto, Saudi Sept. 11 bill becomes law

    By Patricia Zengerle WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Congress on Wednesday overwhelmingly rejected President Barack Obama's veto of legislation allowing relatives of the victims of the Sept. 11 attacks to sue Saudi Arabia, the first veto override of his presidency, just four months before it ends. The House of Representatives voted 348-77 against the veto, hours after the Senate rejected it 97-1, meaning the "Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act" will become law. The vote was a blow to Obama as well as to Saudi Arabia, one of the United States' longest-standing allies in the Arab world, and some lawmakers who supported the override already plan to revisit the issue.

  • Hammond confirms end to support for high loan-to-value mortgages

    British finance minister Philip Hammond said on Thursday he planned to close a government-backed mortgage guarantee scheme, part of its Help to Buy housing programme, at the end of 2016 as previously scheduled. Hammond, in a letter to Bank of England Governor Mark Carney which was published on the government's website, said the high loan-to-value mortgage market had become less reliant on the scheme while the government remained committed to the overall Help to Buy programme and other supports for the housing market. The government of former prime minister David Cameron launched the Help to Buy mortgage guarantee scheme in late 2013 to help home-buyers who could afford mortgage repayments but lacked a large deposit.
