  • Rwandan president says he is not ready to rule out third term
    Rwandan president says he is not ready to rule out third term Wed, Apr 23, 2014

    By Richard Valdmanis BOSTON (Reuters) - Rwandan President Paul Kagame said on Tuesday it was too early to say whether he will seek a third term as head of the east African state, adding "whatever will happen, we'll have an explanation." Articles in pro-government newspapers in recent years have raised the prospect of him staying on after his mandate expires in 2017, a move that would anger his critics and require a change to the constitution. Whatever will happen, we'll have an explanation." He was responding to a student's question about how he imagined his political role in Rwanda after his term ends. He accused the "international community" of destabilizing neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo by allowing people who committed the Rwandan genocide to later escape into Congo's eastern hills and giving them guns. Millions have died in eastern Congo, home to myriad rebel groups, since the end of Rwanda's genocide. More »

  • Roma enjoying revival under U.S. owners Tue, Apr 22, 2014

    By Keith Weir LONDON (Reuters) - AS Roma's American owners see a return to the Champions League next season as only the the first step in creating a club that can compete regularly with the best in Europe. Roma are seeking to follow the example of Italian rivals Juventus by building a new stadium of their own that would boost matchday revenues and create new commercial opportunities to host events like concerts. Roma, controlled by the Boston-based Raptor Group, are already blazing a trail as one of the few leading Italian football clubs that are under foreign ownership. At the end of the day, it's Rome, one of the greatest cities ever," said Raptor founder James Pallotta, who has been club chairman for the past two years. More »

  • Man United act to halt slide as power shifts back to Liverpool
    Man United act to halt slide as power shifts back to Liverpool Tue, Apr 22, 2014

    By Keith Weir LONDON (Reuters) - The balance of power in English football has shifted from one famous U.S.-owned club to another, with Liverpool on course to win the league for the first time in 24 years while rivals Manchester United are in disarray and seeking a new manager. The Glazer family who own United showed their ruthless streak on Tuesday when they sacked manager David Moyes after less than one season in the job. Moyes inherited a Premier League-winning team from Alex Ferguson last year but a dismal campaign means United will miss out on a place in the UEFA Champions League - Europe's top club competition - next season for the first time since 1995. Failing to qualify will cost United upwards of 30 million pounds next year but the Glazers will have been prompted to act by fears of a long barren streak of the kind from which Liverpool are emerging.

    An American who wrote the names of the victims from last year's deadly Boston Marathon bombing on his runner's bib has become the first US citizen to win the event in over three decades. Meb Keflezighi was the first men's runner to cross the finish line on Monday, just yards from the site where twin blasts killed three people one year ago.

  • Ackman, Valeant team up to bid for Allergan in unusual pairing
    Ackman, Valeant team up to bid for Allergan in unusual pairing Tue, Apr 22, 2014

    By Svea Herbst-Bayliss, Rod Nickel and Olivia Oran BOSTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Activist investor William Ackman teamed up with Canadian drugmaker Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc to make a joint run at buying wrinkle-treatment maker Allergan Inc , according to security filings on Monday. The move to acquire Allergan, which is worth around $42 billion (25 billion pounds), is highly unusual as activist investors typically buy stakes and then agitate for strategic change, such as a sale of the company. One source familiar with their plans said it comes after Valeant tried for over a year to court Allergan but was turned away. Ackman and his $13 billion hedge fund, Pershing Square, have a long record in pushing companies to do his bidding, which could help Valeant buy Allergan. More »

  • Boston Marathon men's champ says inspired by bomb victims Mon, Apr 21, 2014

    By Richard Valdmanis BOSTON (Reuters) - American runner Meb Keflezighi said memories of the victims of last year's bomb attack carried him through the last, difficult miles of this year's Boston Marathon. "Those four victims, we can't get them back, and those people that were injured by the same token, I wanted to use their energy to win it," said Keflezighi, who ran with the names of three bombing victims and a university police officer who authorities say was shot dead by the bombers three days later, written on his race number in marker. He broke off from the pack early, leaving himself vulnerable to the brutal uphills just outside Boston's city limits. "I kept thinking Boston strong, Boston strong, Meb strong, Meb strong," he said, referring to the city's unofficial motto since the bombing. More »
