Warplanes knock out Aleppo hospitals as Russian-backed assault intensifies

A man inspects damage outside a field hospital after an airstrike in the rebel-held al-Maadi neighbourhood of AleppoBy Ellen Francis and Tom Perry BEIRUT (Reuters) - Russian or Syrian warplanes knocked two hospitals out of service in the besieged rebel sector of Aleppo on Wednesday and ground forces intensified an assault in a battle which the United Nations said had made the city worse than a slaughterhouse. Two patients died in one of the hospitals and other shelling killed six residents queuing for bread under a siege that has trapped 250,000 people with food running out. "The warplane flew over us and directly started dropping its missiles ... at around 4 a.m.," Mohammad Abu Rajab, a radiologist at the M10 hospital, the largest trauma hospital in the city's rebel-held sector, told Reuters.




U.S. to send more troops to Iraq ahead of Mosul battle

Members of the Shi'ite Badr Organisation undergo training before the upcoming battle to recapture Mosul in Diyala provinceBy Stephen Kalin and Yeganeh Torbati BAGHDAD/ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (Reuters) - The United States will send around 600 new troops to Iraq to assist local forces in the battle to retake Mosul from Islamic State that is expected later this year, U.S. and Iraqi officials said on Wednesday. The new deployment is the third such boost in U.S. troop levels in Iraq since April, underscoring the difficulties President Barack Obama has had in extracting the U.S. military from the country. Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said in a statement that his government asked for more U.S. military trainers and advisers.




Duterte declares upcoming Philippines-U.S. war games 'the last one'

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte arrives at Camp Tecson to talk to soldiers in San Miguel, Bulacan in northern PhilippinesBy Martin Petty HANOI (Reuters) - Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte plunged one of the United States' most important Asian alliances deeper into uncertainty on Wednesday by declaring upcoming U.S.-Philippines military exercises "the last," and ruling out any joint navy patrols. The firebrand Duterte pledged to honor a longstanding security treaty with the United States, but said China opposed joint marine drills in the Philippines starting next week and there would be no more war games with Washington after that. "I am serving notice now to the Americans, this will be the last military exercise," Duterte said during a visit to Vietnam.




Exclusive: Pakistani rebel chief says would welcome help from arch-rival India

A general view of the market in central QuettaBy Asad Hashim ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - The elusive leader of a major rebel group fighting for independence in Pakistan's Baluchistan province said he would welcome cash and other help from India, words likely to alarm Islamabad which accuses New Delhi of stirring trouble there. In his first video interview in five years, Allah Nazar Baloch, head of the ethnic Baluch group Baluchistan Liberation Front (BLF), also vowed further attacks on a Chinese economic corridor, parts of which run through the resource-rich province. The planned $46 billion trade route is expected to link western China with Pakistan's Arabian Sea via a network of roads, railways and energy pipelines.

OPEC agrees modest oil output curbs in first deal since 2008

OPEC logo is pictured ahead of an informal meeting between members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) in AlgiersOPEC agreed on Wednesday modest oil output cuts in the first such deal since 2008, with the group's leader Saudi Arabia softening its stance on arch-rival Iran amid mounting pressure from low oil prices. "OPEC made an exceptional decision today ... After two and a half years, OPEC reached consensus to manage the market," said Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh, who had repeatedly clashed with Saudi Arabia during previous meetings. OPEC estimates its current output at 33.24 million bpd.




Oil prices, stocks up on surprise OPEC deal though gains seen fizzling

Businessmen stand in front of electronic boards showing the exchange rate between Japanese yen against the U.S. dollar outside a brokerage in TokyoOil prices extended gains in Asia on Thursday, boosting stock markets, after OPEC members agreed to curb output in a surprise deal, though investors were wary of chasing markets higher as the U.S. presidential election nears. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up 0.8 percent by mid-morning, thanks to a bounce in energy shares, but other markets such as Hong Kong were starting to cede some of their initial gains. "Despite the favorable oil deal, foreign institutional investors are sticking to their favorite counters before the U.S. elections results as there is simply too much market uncertainty," said Andrew Sullivan, managing director, sales trading at Haitong International Securities Group in Hong Kong.

Fed's primal divide: Is economy overheating or stuck in a rut?

Chicago Federal Reserve Bank President Evans takes a question during a round table with the media in ShanghaiInvestors may be expecting a U.S. interest rate increase in December, but Federal Reserve policymakers remain divided over whether the economy is mired in a rut, strong enough to withstand an immediate hike or hovering somewhere in between. The Fed raised rates last December for the first time in nearly a decade, and many investors currently expect it to raise rates again this December - but only with about a 55 percent probability, according to data from CME Group. "The low interest rate environment is not just a U.S. phenomenon, or simply a situation engineered by Federal Reserve policy," Chicago Fed President Charles Evans said in a speech to a community banking conference in St. Louis on Wednesday.
