  • S.Korean prosecutors raid family home of ill-fated ferry's owner

    A family member of a missing passenger of capsized passenger ship Sewol, cries after she checked a list of missing victims on a noticeboard at makeshift accommodation in JindoBy Miyoung Kim SEOUL (Reuters) - Prosecutors investigating the fatal sinking of a South Korean ferry have raided the home of Yoo Byung-un, the head of a family that owns the Chonghaejin Marine Co. Ltd, the company that operated the ship. South Korean prosecutors and agencies tend to adopt a blanket approach in raids, rather than targeting specific lines of inquiry. They raided the home of one of Yoo's sons on Wednesday, but found that he was away and the door was locked and they could not enter the house. The finances of Chonghaejin and its complex share structure have come into the spotlight after the ferry disaster, which has shocked South Korea.

  • Ukraine's leaders say have U.S. backing to take on "aggressors"

    An armored personnel carrier is seen near a barricade around the state security service building in SlavianskBy Pavel Polityuk and Alastair Macdonald KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine's government relaunched a security operation to crack down on pro-Russian armed groups after an Easter pause on Wednesday and said it had the backing of the United States. Prompted in part by the discovery of the body of a Ukrainian politician who appeared to have been tortured, officials in Kiev decided to renew what they call an "anti-terrorist operation" against separatist militias who have seized control of about a dozen public buildings in eastern Ukraine. But it was unclear what steps, in reality, Kiev could take to restore its authority in the mainly Russian-speaking east, without wrecking an international deal, signed last week in Geneva, designed to defuse the stand-off. The crisis over Ukraine, now in its fourth month, has dragged Russia's relations with the West to their lowest level since the Cold War.


  • Netanyahu tells Abbas to choose peace partner: Hamas or Israel

    Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu speaks during cabinet meeting in JerusalemBy Jeffrey Heller JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cautioned Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday over just-revived unity talks with Hamas, saying he had to choose between peace with Israel or its Islamist enemy. Amplifying Netanyahu's warning, Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Abbas's signature on a unity accord with Hamas would be tantamount to "signing the termination of negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority".

  • Australia, Malaysia vow to keep searching to solve plane mystery

    Handout of crew aboard the Australian Defence Vessel Ocean Shield moving the U.S. Navy’s Bluefin-21 into position for deployment, in the southern Indian Ocean to look for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370By Byron Kaye PERTH Australia (Reuters) - Australia and Malaysia vowed on Wednesday to keep searching for a missing Malaysian plane despite no sign of wreckage after almost seven weeks, and as bad weather again grounded aircraft and an undersea drone neared the end of its first full mission. But Australian authorities said unidentified material washed up on the coast of Western Australia was being investigated for possible links to missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370. Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott had earlier acknowledged that the search strategy could change if seabed scans taken by the U.S. Navy drone failed to turn up a trace of the plane, which vanished on March 8 with 239 people on board.
