The tunnel, located in the Ponar forest, known today as Paneriai, outside of the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius, is the site where some 100,000 people, including 70,000 Jews, were killed and thrown into pits during Nazi occupation. In the quest to find the tunnel, the team of archaeologists, geophysicists and Jewish historians from Israel, the United States, Canada and Lithuania did not want to disturb any human remains in the mass burial pits at the site. So the researchers used scanning technology called electrical resistivity tomography - the same kind used in mineral and oil exploration - to map out the path of the 34-meter - long tunnel. The prisoners were dubbed the Burning Brigade and they lived in fear that once their task was complete, they too would be killed. According to accounts, one prisoner, Isaac Dogim, was piling decomposed corpses when he recognized members of his own family, including his wife. Then on April 15, 1944, in the middle of the night, 40 prisoners filed off their chains and fled through the narrow tunnel. A Lithuanian archaeologist discovered the tunnel entrance in 2004, and the museum called on the research team to search for the entire tunnel. Last year, the same research team used ground penetrating radar to discover parts of the old Great Synagogue of Vilna, which was demolished by Soviet authorities after the war.
A Boston-based publishing company has decided to donate proceeds from Adolf Hitler's infamous manifesto Mein Kampf to a local organization that works with aging Holocaust survivors. The move comes after publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt was criticized by Jewish advocates for its plans to donate proceeds and royalties from the book to Boston-area cultural organizations, and not necessarily to those that combat anti-Semitism.
Following the backlash, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt partnered with Boston-based Combined Jewish Philanthropies to determine "how best to provide aid directly to the victims of the horrific events of the Holocaust," Andrew Russell, the publisher's director of corporate social responsibility, said in a statement.
The publisher had been donating proceeds from sales of the book to organizations that combat anti-Semitism since 2000, but last year announced they were going to widen the scope to include other cultural organizations. Hitler wrote Mein Kampf - or "My Struggle"-after he was jailed following the failed 1923 coup attempt known as the Beer Hall Putsch. Children born in developing countries this year will lose more than $177 billion in potential lifetime earnings because of stunting and other delays in physical development, scientists said on Wednesday. Children who have poor growth in their first years of life tend to perform worse at school which usually leads to poorer earning power later on.
The Harvard scientists calculated that every dollar invested in eliminating poor early growth would yield a $3 return. Poor nutrition, premature birth, low breast-feeding rates and early exposure to infection are among several causes of stunting which affects three in 10 children in the developing world.
World Bank President Jim Yong Kim recently warned that childhood stunting was "a great unrecognized disaster", adding that countries which failed to invest in early child development would be left behind in an increasingly complex, digital world. Echoing his remarks, Singer said the economic value of investing in children's early years was "absolutely humongous".
Progress in improving early childhood physical development has been slow compared to the significant achievements in reducing under-five mortality rates, the report said. The Harvard scientists arrived at the $177 billion figure after looking at indicators for the 123 million children born in 2010 in 137 low and middle-income countries.
Prince William, his wife Kate and brother Harry were set to attend a vigil at the Thiepval Memorial surrounded by the bucolic fields where about 1 million British, French and German troops lost their lives in the nearly five-month battle. Some 20,000 British forces died on that first day of the battle, the bloodiest day in the country's military history, while thousands more were maimed and wounded. Vernon said he was coming to remember his great-uncle - also named William - a banker who died aged 26 in the Battle of the Somme on July 16, 1916. Vernon's son - 33-year-old William - said he felt it was important to pay tribute to his relative who died "in the most horrendous conditions. For the first time France and Britain, which fought side by side in the battle, are holding a joint commemoration ceremony at the site. Beleaguered British Prime Minister David Cameron - mired in a battlefield of his own after Britain voted to leave the European Union - has confirmed he will attend alongside his French President Francois Hollande. Hollande made a last-minute change to his schedule to attend and show that "beyond what is happening at a European level, the United Kingdom remains a friend with which France wants to keep a relationship," a source close to the president told AFP. Prince Charles will also attend the main ceremony at Thiepval on Friday, while 20,000 people are expected at tributes in the Picardy region at six different memorials, according to local authorities.
The Thiepval Memorial is the largest Commonwealth war memorial in the world, commemorating more than 72,000 men who died. On the Allied side, the battle was seen as a military tragedy not only for the British, but also for their comrades in arms from Ireland, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and Canada. In the meantime, health officials have warned couples to refrain from unprotected sex for six months after a male partner is infected.
Borrowing money earmarked for other programs, the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases has started enrolling men infected with Zika in Brazil and Colombia in the study to determine how long the virus remains transmittable in semen. Public health officials are alarmed by Zika's transmission versatility, which has the potential to expand its reach. But at least 10 countries, including the United States and France, have reported Zika infections in people who had not traveled to an outbreak area but whose sexual partners had. To protect women who are pregnant or trying to conceive, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended couples refrain from unprotected sex for six months - triple the 62 days the virus survived in the semen in one British case study.
But such strict advice is not ideal, Doctor Anne Schuchat, a CDC deputy director, said in an interview.
In the US territory of Puerto Rico, where more than 2,100 cases of infection have been reported since the start of the year, health officials are passing out Zika protection kits that include bug spray and condoms, along with the recommendation. But the warning against unprotected sex isn't going over very well, said Doctor Chris Prue, a CDC behavioral scientist who has studied the response. Teheran and Ankara asked to list the work of Jalalud-Din Muhammad Rumi as their joint heritage on the UN's "Memory of the World" register in May.
The register, falling under the UN's cultural organization UNESCO, was formed in 1997 to protect the world's documentary heritage - archives, correspondence and writing - especially in troubled or conflict-ridden areas. But the Afghan government has denounced the bid, which mainly concerns the 25,600 verses of Masnavi-i-Ma'navi, one of the most influential works in Persian literature.
He is one of the best-selling poets in the United States, and his works have been translated into more than 23 languages. The poet and philosopher "was born in Balkh in Afghanistan and made us proud," the Ministry of Information and Culture insisted.
UNESCO "never asked us" about the proposal, Harron Haklimi, the ministry's spokesman, said, acknowledging that Kabul had been beaten to the punch but hoping they can yet convince the organization that Afghanistan has the better claim to the poet. For Afghans, who learn his poems in primary school, Rumi is "Maulana Jalaludin Balkh" or "Maulana" (literally "our master"). Most researchers agree he was born in Balkh, Afghanistan in 1207 - though this too has been the subject of debate: a few argue he was born just across the border, in what is modern day Tajikistan, in a region also known as Balkh. Today, the Afghan town of Balkh is a small provincial settlement, but back then it was an ancient religious capital and center for Buddhist and Persian literature. The young Rumi and his family fled to Turkey, where he spent most of his life - he died in the city of Konya in 1273. But for Afghans, he remains a child of their country and it is still possible to visit the house in which they believe he was born. The powerful governor of Balkh province, former warlord General Ata Mohammad Noor called on Afghanistan's representative to the United Nations to protest. To accede to it without mentioning Afghanistan would be unacceptable, said the director of Balkh's provincial cultural department, Salih Mohammad Khaleeq. The two-time Oscar winner and five-time Academy Award nominee came to embody the elegant glamour of the silver screen in the 1930s and 1940s.
But she also made waves with a landmark legal battle against the Hollywood studios and a secret feud with her equally famous sister, Joan Fontaine. The 1939 box-office blockbuster Gone with the Wind brought de Havilland wide acclaim for her role as the noble, long-suffering Melanie, starring opposite Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable in the US Civil War epic. Her performance as love rival to the fiery Scarlett O'Hara, played by Leigh, led to de Havilland's first Oscar nod for best supporting actress. But she lost out to costar Hattie McDaniel, who played the character of Mammy and became the first African-American to win an Academy Award.
The film sealed de Havilland's reputation as one of Hollywood's top leading ladies, but with her doe-eyed looks she soon felt frustrated at the roles she was offered, fearful of being typecast as a sweet, innocent young thing. Her screen debut had come as Hermia in A Midsummer Night's Dream in 1935 after director Max Re inhardt spotted her in a local theater production of the play. She won accolades for her role opposite swashbuckling actor Errol Flynn in Captain Blood later the same year, and their on-screen chemistry persuaded studio bosses to cast her alongside Flynn in seven other movies. De Havilland incurred the wrath of the bosses at Warner Bros, who at that time effectively owned their stars, by rejecting script after script she felt stereotyped her. In what was a shocking move for the era, she sued the studios to be released from her seven-year contract and won, in a far-reaching 1945 ruling which gave actors the right to choose their own roles and career paths.
Turkey on Thursday detained 13 suspected Islamic State extremists over the deadly Istanbul airport attack, as chilling details emerged of how suicide bombers launched their assault. The death toll from Tuesday's gun and suicide bomb rampage at Ataturk airport has risen to 43, with 13 foreigners among the dead and 239 people injured. Turkey has been plunged into mourning over the carnage, the deadliest of several attacks to strike the country's biggest city this year. Police carried out 16 raids across Istanbul early on Thursday, an official said, with three foreign nationals among the detained. Turkey has suffered a string of deadly attacks in the past year blamed on either IS or Kurdish rebels, and the airport attack comes just at the start of the crucial summer tourist season. Interior Minister Efkan Ala told reporters late on Wednesday there was an ongoing "serious and comprehensive investigation" into who was behind the attack. CIA Director John Brennan said on Wednesday that the attack has the earmarks of strikes by IS militants and that the group is likely trying to hit the United States in the Middle East and on US soil. Details are emerging of how the attackers arrived at Turkey's busiest airport by taxi before indiscriminately firing at passengers with automatic rifles and detonating suicide bombs.

In seven of 15 countries outside of the United States polled by Pew Research Center, Trump's ratings are in the single digits. He polls best in China, where there is a split between 40 percent who have no confidence in Trump and 39 percent who do not offer an opinion.
The survey, which examines international attitudes toward the US, gauged opinions from 20,132 people in Canada, the US, 10 nations in Europe and four in the Asia-Pacific between April 4 and May 29. Pew said that in many of the countries where polling trends were available, views of former secretary of state have improved significantly since 2008 when she was running for the Democratic nomination against Barack Obama.
The countries surveyed were Canada, the US, Sweden, Germany, Netherlands, France, Britain, Spain, Greece, Italy, Poland, Hungary, Australia, Japan, China and India. Obama and the leaders of Mexico and Canada pushed back forcefully on Wednesday against the isolationist and anti-immigrant sentiments that have roiled Britain and been championed by Trump.

Johnson, whose support for the campaign to leave the EU was widely considered one of the decisive factors in the campaign, had been bookmakers' runaway favorite to succeed David Cameron, who quit last week after failing to persuade British voters to stay in the bloc.
Johnson's unexpected departure from the race, announced just minutes before the party unveiled the list of candidates, shows the speed with which the political landscape is being reshaped.
Cameron's replacement will face tough talks with the EU to mend a broken relationship - balancing a desire to reduce immigration to Britain while trying to secure the economy by maintaining access to European markets. Johnson's departure from the race followed swiftly after another leading ally in the pro-Brexit campaign, Justice Secretary Michael Gove, put himself forward as a candidate, saying he had withdrawn support for Johnson.
Gove will face off against Theresa May, the interior minister, who campaigned to remain in the EU, as well as other candidates for the ruling party's leadership.
Work and pensions minister Stephen Crabb announced his candidacy on Wednesday, while right-wing former defense minister Liam Fox is also expected to run.
The Brexit vote has sent the pound plunging and prompted economists to slash their growth forecasts for the one of the world's biggest economies.
US President Barack Obama warned on Wednesday that Brexit raised "longer-term concerns about global growth". The result has exposed deep divisions in the United Kingdom and triggered anger among those who wanted to remain in the EU, many of whom believe "Leave" voters were misled and that a second referendum is needed.
However, 58 percent of Britons believe the result should stand against 31 percent who think the vote should be rerun, according to a YouGov poll. European leaders, keen not to encourage burgeoning anti-EU movements across the continent, have warned that Britain will not be able to pick and choose the cosiest terms of divorce. The Airbus A320 plunged into the eastern Mediterranean Sea en route from Paris to Cairo on May 19, killing all 66 people on board.

The opposition Mongolian People's Party has won a decisive victory in parliamentary elections in the landlocked nation where a fall in commodity prices has sent the economy into a sharp decline.
A vocal critic of Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak was charged with corruption on Thursday in a further blow to the divided opposition, which alleged that the case was politically motivated. A fire in a pharmacy engulfed residential quarters of a Mumbai suburban building early on Thursday, killing eight people, police said. An Australian teenager accused of discussing packing a kangaroo with explosives and setting it loose on police is facing life behind bars after pleading guilty on Thursday to planning a terrorist act.
Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has permitted registered Afghan refugees to remain in the country until the end of the year, the government said as an earlier deadline was set to expire.
A teacher conducts a lesson for internally displaced children inside a cave in the rebel-controlled village of Tramla in Idlib province, Syria. Syrian student Ali Khaled Stouf has to walk down several steps into a hole in the ground to get inside his school - a cave. There for four hours each morning, he studies subjects like Arabic, English, math and religion, sitting on a rug with dozens of children in the underground space in Tramla, an opposition-held village in Syria's northwestern Idlib province. His teacher Mohamed and his wife, also from Hama, have opened up their underground home to teach some 100 children, whose families have been displaced by the Syrian conflict. More than five years of war, which began as a peaceful protest against President Bashar al-Assad and has since drawn in foreign military involvement and allowed for the growth of Islamic State, has displaced millions of Syrian children and limited their access to education.
With schools themselves at times attacked, teachers make do with the basics to provide education. Mohamed said the primitive, six-month-old school floods when it rains, forcing him to teach outside or in a tent, although he prefers the security underground.
Idlib province is a stronghold of insurgent groups including the al-Qaida-linked Nusra Front and has been regularly targeted in airstrikes by the Syrian government, whose war effort has been boosted by the Russian air force. At the Souriya al-Ammal (Syria the hope) school, in the town of Maarat al-Numan, corridors and classrooms are bullet-ridden and sometimes crumbling. In the nearby town of Saraqib, a mobile caravan serves as a classroom, run by a group aiming to reach children who have no access to schooling in the area. In the rebel-held town of Douma, outside Damascus, Mounir Abdelaziz, a member of the opposition-run education body, said local schools were using old textbooks, but with changes. A worker from the Casa da Moeda do Brasil (Brazilian Mint) prepares a Rio 2016 Paralympic medal in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Tuesday. The 500-gram Olympic gold medals that Usain Bolt, Michael Phelps and other athletes will be competing for in Rio de Janeiro are nearly 99 percent silver. Each of the 5,130 Olympic and Paralympic medals takes about 48 hours to make, said Berbert, who has an 80-strong team working shifts around the clock.
Nike, the winged goddess of victory in Ancient Greece, is minted on one side below the five Olympic rings, while the discipline for which the medal has been won is engraved along its edge.
Demonstrators show London's solidarity with the European Union following the recent EU referendum, in Trafalgar Square, central London, on Tuesday. European leaders met on Wednesday without Britain for the first time in 40 years to prepare for life after the Brexit bombshell.
Highlighting the seismic shock from last week's referendum, one person who was in Brussels however was Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, "utterly determined" to see Scotland remain in the EU. At a summit described as "sad" on Tuesday, British Prime Minister David Cameron won some breathing space from the remaining 27 leaders of the bloc five days after Britain rocked financial markets by voting 52 to 48 percent to leave the bloc.
Juncker warned Britain did not have "months to meditate" before triggering Article 50 - the EU treaty clause that begins the two-year withdrawal process - after Cameron's successor takes office in early September. German Chancellor Angela Merkel earlier warned that London could not "cherry-pick" the terms of the exit negotiations.
Cameron flew back to London after Tuesday's summit, as Sturgeon headed in the opposite direction to test the waters in Brussels for her country joining the bloc as a separate entity. Scotland overwhelmingly backed "Remain" in last Thursday's vote, and the combative Sturgeon has said she was "utterly determined to preserve Scotland's relationship and place within the EU".


That may require a new referendum on Scottish independence, with Sturgeon saying that the Britain from the last vote in 2014 "does not exist any more" following the Brexit vote. Top of the agenda at Wednesday's EU meeting was how the remaining 27 members can bolster unity after the shock of the British vote. Meanwhile, thousands protested in London on Tuesday, waving EU flags and placards saying: "Stop Brexit" and chanting "Fromage (cheese), not Farage!", a reference to Nigel Farage, a key figure in the "Leave" camp.
Britain's Conservative party launched the race on Wednesday to succeed Prime Minister David Cameron after last week's stunning Brexit vote, with former London mayor and top "Leave" campaigner Boris Johnson tipped as the front-runner. With turmoil surging through both of Britain's main parties, defiant opposition Labour chief Jeremy Corbyn faced a looming leadership challenge after Thursday's referendum. Johnson, who led the "Leave" campaign, tops the opinion polls along with interior minister Theresa May for the Conservative leadership, and therefore the keys to 10 Downing Street.
But in Brussels on Tuesday, at least for the cameras, the British prime minister cut a relaxed figure, one who shared his regret with other leaders but one who was resigned to offering advice from the sidelines on how to fix a broken relationship. For the others at the table, summit protocol - and a dash of genuine fellow feeling for another highflying career undone at the ballot box - ensured a formal politeness.
Outside, however, as Cameron aides told British reporters that he felt easy EU migration policy had cost them Britain's membership - and Cameron his job - EU officials hit back, accusing the British leadership of reaping the whirlwind of years of anti-EU rhetoric and making vows to cut immigration he could not keep. After relinquishing his premiership when Britain voted for a Brexit against his advice, Cameron came to Brussels as a caretaker leader, one who wanted to help "shape" Britain's future ties with the EU for a new prime minister.
As he shook hands with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and European Council President Donald Tusk and others, there was occasional awkwardness but also, his aides said, he was pleased that he had won some "understanding" that he had to resign. And despite irritation that he has reneged on a promise to trigger the withdrawal process immediately, an EU official also acknowledged that Cameron's move to leave that job to whoever succeeds him was the mark of "a clever tactician to the end". Hours after the tense march held under tight security, the right-dominated Senate approved its version of the hotly contested legislation aimed at reining in unemployment by freeing up the job market. Police made 38 arrests, including 27 people who were prevented from marching mainly because they were carrying potential projectiles. Minor scuffles were reported during this 11th demonstration against the reforms since a wave of protests began on March 9. Many have descended into violence, reaching a peak in Paris on June 14, just four days after the start of the Euro 2016 soccer championships in France, when around 40 people were hurt and dozens were arrested.
On Tuesday, some 2,500 riot police were deployed for a crowd estimated by officials at between 14,000 and 15,000 people, while organizers put the figure at 55,000. Seven unions, meanwhile, submitted what they called partial results from a public survey on the draft labor law, with 92 percent of 700,000 respondents calling for its withdrawal. French President Francois Hollande said last week that his government would "go all the way" to enact the reforms, which are seen by critics as too pro-business and a threat to cherished workers' rights.
Prime Minister Manuel Valls was scheduled to meet union leaders on Wednesday and Thursday but has already signaled he is not open to further modifying a text that has already been watered down.
Valls, who has been a lightning rod for criticism because of his unrelenting stance on the reforms, conceded little by agreeing to the meetings. The prime minister's office said "it is not a matter of reopening a cycle of negotiations". Philippe Martinez, secretary-general of the hard line CGT union, said he hoped the meeting would not be a mere "courtesy call just to have a coffee". Unions said the main sticking point is a measure giving precedence to agreements negotiated between companies and their staff over deals reached with unions across entire industrial sectors - notably on working hours. The two sides have not met since early March, although Valls telephoned union leaders on May 28. Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday sought to heal ties in their first phone call since Ankara downed one of Moscow's jets in Syria last year. A statement from the Turkish presidency said Erdogan and Putin "highlighted the importance of the normalization of bilateral relations between Turkey and Russia".
Putin also condemned the "heinous" attack at Istanbul's Ataturk airport on Monday that killed at least 41 people and offered condolences to the Turkish people, the statement said. The phone call came after Erdogan on Monday sent a letter to Putin that Moscow said contained an apology. The downing of the plane in November ruptured relations and saw Moscow impose a raft of sanctions, including an embargo on Turkish food products and a ban on charter flights and the sale of package tours to the country. It also sparked a bitter war of words between the leaders with Putin calling it a "stab in the back" and demanding an apology from Erdogan. Ankara has said Erdogan expressed his "regret" over the incident in Monday's letter to Putin and asked the family of the pilot who died to "excuse us", but has not explicitly confirmed he apologized for shooting down the plane. Kremlin has described the letter as an "important step" but warned that "there is no need to think that in several days it will be possible to normalize everything". Premier Li Keqiang meets with representatives of business leaders attending Summer Davos Forum in Tianjin on Tuesday.
Klaus Schwab: Premier Li Keqiang, thank you for sharing with us such a comprehensive and integrated vision of China's economy.
When the size of China's economy has become so big, if we still blindly pursue a high growth speed, it will only put more pressure on our resources and the environment, and such growth is unsustainable. In the meantime, we will not underestimate the "variables" in the global economy, nor the potential risks and challenges in China's economy.
Klaus Schwab: Maybe with the industrial revolution, in five to ten years, we will have implanted microphones.
Li Keqiang: As I said in the special address, to crack the hard nut of the sluggish global economic recovery, we must address the issue at its root. Mankind has the wisdom of embracing such new hope, hope of the new round of industrial revolution. Second, we need to implement fiscal and tax incentives to support innovation and development of new industries. Third, we will implement differentiated industrial policies to support the new round of scientific revolution and industrial transformation.
To conclude, I want to emphasize that next time when we meet again, whether you are engaged in transforming a traditional industry or developing a new one, you are all the new champions.
Feike Sijbesma, Chairman and CEO of Royal DSM: Premier Li, in recent years, the Chinese government has made vigorous efforts to pursue structural reform, including reforms of the SOEs and functions in the government, and cut in taxes and fees, etc.
Li Keqiang: Before answering your question, I want to first express my high appreciation to the World Economic Forum for forging such a close partnership with the Chinese side. In recent years, the Chinese government has made hard efforts in advancing all-around reform to create the necessary conditions for structural reforms and use structural reform in return to underpin sustained and steady economic growth. In pursuing structural reforms, especially supply-side structural reforms, we have focused on streamlining administration, delegating government power and lifting the undue restrictions on companies and the market.
The endeavor of streamlining administration and delegating power and encouragement of mass entrepreneurship and innovation have also contributed to the improvement of the economic structure. Second, we have introduced significant tax cuts and eliminated the undue administrative fees. Third, we have continued to reform SOEs, including large SOEs, to make them leaner but healthier and to ensure that they focus on main businesses, cut the excessive tiers of management and introduce mixed ownership in order to enhance their core competitiveness.
In one word, reform is the fundamental driving force for China's economic development, and we will stay firm on this course.
Li Keqiang: China is the world's largest developing country and a country that is still in the process of industrialization.
Second, in upgrading China's manufacturing sector, we need to use the internet+ to pool intellect and resources globally to offer solutions to various problems. Third, in upgrading the manufacturing sector, we must be highly responsive to the market changes. In carrying out this task, we need to be firm in the resolve, and follow a market-driven and law-based approach.
Li Keqiang: It is hard to describe the biggest challenge China's economy faces in one sentence. China needs to use reform and innovation to achieve economic transformation and sustainable, healthy development.
During China's economic transformation, the new economy is developing, the service sector is growing and traditional industries are going through upgrading. Li Keqiang: It is true that the result of the Brexit vote has sent jitters across global financial markets.
On China's part, it will do its best to maintain the stability of its domestic capital and financial markets. The Chinese people have a long-standing propensity to save, and savings in China account for nearly half of the GDP.
In developing capital markets, we will guard against systemic and regional financial risks and prevent cross infection of different financial markets. Klaus Schwab: I would like to acknowledge the presence of such high-level government delegation, the esteemed members of government that have accompanied you. Li Keqiang: I want to thank you, Professor Schwab and all present for your tremendous effort in making the Summer Davos Forum this year a success. Turkey's president has apologized for the downing of a Russian military jet at the Syrian border, the Kremlin said on Monday, an unexpected move that could open the way for easing a bitter strain in Russia-Turkey ties.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan's letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin comes seven months after the incident, which has triggered a slew of Russian sanctions that have dealt a severe blow to the Turkish economy. Erdogan's office was keen to describe the letter as an expression of regret, not an apology.
In a speech delivered during a Ramadan fast-breaking dinner in Ankara, Erdogan said he had written to Putin expressing his "regrets" over the incident and reminding the Russian leader of the "potential for regional cooperation".
The Kremlin said on Tuesday that Putin will on Wednesday hold his first phone call with Erdogan since the downing. Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim on Tuesday went back on an earlier offer of compensation to Russia. Putin had denounced the downing of the Russian warplane at the Syrian border on Nov 24 as a "treacherous stab in the back". The letter comes at a moment when Ankara's relations with the European Union and the United States have also been strained over the migrant crisis and other disputes.
French authorities opened a manslaughter inquiry on Monday into the May crash of an EgyptAir plane that killed 66 people, saying there is no evidence so far to link it to terrorism.
Republic of Korea on Tuesday rejected the Democratic People's Republic of Korea's proposal to hold a meeting of political parties and social organizations from the two neighbors around Aug 15 marking the 71st anniversary of the Korean Peninsula's liberation from Japan's 1910-45 colonial rule. A least eight people, including a Chinese citizen, were injured in an explosion in Kuala Lumpur early on Tuesday.
Police charged seven people including a senior opposition official over the murder of an Italian aid worker last September, an officer said on Tuesday. Lebanese troops raided makeshift refugee camps near a predominantly Christian village on the border with Syria on Tuesday a day after two waves of suicide attacks. Rescuers launched an air and sea search on Tuesday for a boat missing in Pacific waters off Tonga carrying 11 people, including up to five children.
But on this chilly, windy Saturday in April, after 12 hours out in the Gulf of Maine, he has caught exactly two cod, and he feels far removed from the 1990s, when he could catch 900 kilograms of the fish in a day.
Though no waters are immune to the ravages of climate change, the Gulf of Maine best illustrates the problem. For the fishermen of the northeastern United States, whether to stick with fishing, adapt to the changing ocean or leave the business is a constant worry. Robert Bradfield was one of the East Coast's most endangered species, a Rhode Island lobsterman, until he pulled his traps out of the water for the last time about a decade ago.
The number of adult lobsters in New England south of Cape Cod slid to about 10 million in 2013, according to a report issued last year by an interstate regulatory board.
Bradfield, a father to three grown children, said his decision was more about economics than science.
The challenges climate change have brought to commercial fishing are perhaps most noticeable in New England's cod fishery, which has dwindled from more than 1,200 boats in the 1980s to only a few dozen today. Goethel, also a marine scientist, doesn't bemoan the ocean's changing temperature as much as the rules he must play by. The changes have been difficult emotionally for Goethel, whose sons, Daniel and Eric, are a fisheries biologist and a tugboat captain. Elijah Voge-Meyers carries cod caught in the nets of a trawler off the coast of New Hampshire on April 23. Jewish and Soviet prisoners were brought to the Ponar forest from Stutthof concentration camp.
Guards quickly discovered them and many were shot, but 11 prisoners managed to escape to the forest, reach partisan forces and survive the war. Moving forward, the proceeds from Mein Kampf will be donated to Jewish Family& Children's Service of Greater Boston for "direct support of the health and human services needs of (Holocaust) survivors," Russell said. Chan School of Public Health said their research represented the first in-depth study of the economic impact of poor early growth in low - and middle-income countries.
I feel it's important to remember these things," said 73-year-old Irishman William Vernon, arriving at the tiny train station of the village Albert under rainy skies to attend the main commemoration ceremony set for Friday. The extraordinary recommendation, based on a single report of Zika surviving 62 days in semen, could affect millions. The study could take years to complete, but interim results could help public health officials fine-tune their recommendations on sex.
It is primarily spread by Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, as are the dengue and chikungunya viruses.
This ability to spread through sex could help Zika gain a further foothold outside the warm habitats of its most effective agent, the mosquito. A bid by Iran and Turkey to do so has exasperated Afghanistan, country of his birth eight centuries ago. Hollywood is planning a Rumi biopic - also mired in controversy after rumored plans for Leonardo DiCaprio to play him were met with accusations of "whitewashing".
It was there that his son founded the Order of the Whirling Dervishes to perpetuate his father's teachings. No one thought I would win, but I did." In a real-life Hollywood drama, de Havilland was estranged for many years from her sister Joan Fontaine.
In a twist of fate, de Havilland fell ill as a girl leading to an initially short stay in California that stretched into years. Large majorities in 11 of the countries have little or no confidence in the prospective Republican presidential nominee ability to manage international affairs.
Trump, who has advocated trade protectionism and temporarily banning Muslims from entering the US, records his highest ratings in Europe among supporters of political parties that are anti-immigration or oppose European integration. A median of 59 percent in Europe have confidence in the Democratic contender - compared with just 9 percent for Trump. In all countries surveyed other than Greece, half or more of those polled express confidence in the US president. The leaders warned against easy solutions peddled by "demagogues" who feed on economic anxiety. The head of the national election commission said on Thursday that the MPP won 65 out of 76 seats in the national legislature. Lim Guan Eng has repeatedly demanded that Najib explain a massive financial scandal that engulfed his administration last year.
A fire official said the victims were asleep when the fire broke out and were trapped on the first floor of the building in Andheri district in India's financial and entertainment capital. Sevdet Besim was arrested in Melbourne last year when he was 18 and accused of planning to run down police officers with a car, behead them and then shoot other people at an April 25 Anzac Day parade for Australia's soldiers. In a statement late on Wednesday, the government said Sharif directed authorities to immediately engage the UN refugee agency and the Afghan government for the gradual relocation of refugee camps in Pakistan to Afghanistan. Several people who live in the cave have set up a school in it for the children during the day.
In one less damaged area, walls have been repainted and the school now has some 250 pupils.
Teachers in Idlib said they relied on charities or used books printed in neighboring Turkey by the opposition run Directorate of Education. And this morning it looks like they aren't sitting at the table any more", European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said as he arrived on Wednesday. But outside the room many leaders, and their spin doctors, made clear they blame Cameron for driving the Union to the brink of collapse. The November incident froze relations between the two nations and saw Moscow slap sanctions on Ankara. The truth is, a medium-high growth is good enough for us in adding jobs, increasing personal income and improving the environment.


I hope that all the business people present here will be long-term investors in China's market and a force for boosting such a trend. The Chinese government has made a strong call for innovation-driven development, including both technological innovation and institutional innovation to create more room for everyone to be an innovator. The central government has adopted a series of preferential tax measures and provided financial support.
We will upgrade traditional industries, enforce stricter environmental, safety and product quality standards to cut overcapacity and eliminate backward capacity. Could you share with us the priorities in those structural reforms and the progress China is making? In particular, we have reformed the corporate registration system and investment review system.
In this process, micro businesses and SMEs have been the largest contributor of new jobs, and made the service sector the biggest sector in the economy. We are creating conditions and the environment for SOEs and private companies to compete as equals on a level playing field. My company is investing in cloud computing infrastructure across China with our partner Baidu. To upgrade China's manufacturing sector and elevate China's 200+ industrial products, the output of which is the largest in the world, to a new level, we need to rely on the internet, cloud computing, big data and other technologies to make China's manufacturing smarter and more digitized. In my special address yesterday, I gave the example of a local Tianjin company of cloud computing which serves the manufacturing sector. I have a question that goes on the "cloud" to the heavy industry that sometimes produces a lot of clouds. Now we need to turn our attention to the traditional heavy industries standing on the ground.
In the next few years, we plan to eliminate 100-150 million tons of excess steel capacity and 800 million tons of coal-making capacity, involving the employment of some two million people. We will enforce stricter environmental, safety and product quality standards to meet our goal. Veihmeyer, Chairman of KPMG: Premier Li, thank you for your very open, clear and direct answers to the questions. As I said in my special address yesterday, now is the time for all of us to work together to strengthen confidence, to prevent the spread of panic and to maintain stability of the global capital markets. The relationship between our two sides is indeed an interesting one: you could be said to be the host of the Forum and so could we, as the Forum is held on Chinese soil. The formal apology, which the Kremlin had requested, came hours after Turkey and Israel announced details of an agreement to repair their strained relations. Russia rejected the Turkish claim that the plane had violated its airspace, and responded by deploying long-range air defense missiles to its base in Syria, warning that they would destroy any target posing a threat to Russian aircraft.
It came on the same day that Turkey and Israel released details of a deal to reappoint ambassadors and end six years of acrimony over Israel's 2010 deadly raid on a Gaza-bound Turkish aid ship.
Prosecutor's office spokesman Agnes Thibault-Lecuivre said the inquiry was launched as an accident investigation, not a terrorism investigation.
The explosion hit a bar where people were watching the Euro 2016 soccer match and was believed to be caused by a hand grenade. The killing near the capital's diplomatic zone was the first in a wave of attacks claimed by the Islamic State group, and was followed days later by the gunning down of a Japanese farmer.
Five people were killed and 15 wounded when four suicide bombers attacked the village before dawn on Monday. Police said the boat set off from Nuku'alofa on Monday and was due to arrive overnight in Fonoifua island.
The gulf, where fishermen have for centuries sought lobster, cod and other species that thrived in its cold waters, is now warming faster than 99 percent of the world's oceans, scientists have said. He is glad he's still on the water, but he misses lobstering and the community of fishermen he used to see in Newport. He is glad he left the business, as painful as it was to leave a piece of his identity behind. But the catch these days is different; with cod in jeopardy and catch quotas at all-time lows, he tries to eke out a living by supplementing cod with just about anything else. In that time, the catch of cod has plummeted from more than 53 million kg in 1980 to just over 2.3 million kg in 2014. Fishermen in the northeastern United States are struggling with warming waters that have transformed some of the country's oldest and most historic commercial fisheries.
With their legs chained, they were forced to dig up the mass graves, collect bodies and burn them. Their quest is the subject of a forthcoming documentary by the science series NOVA, premiering in the United States next year. A study of sexual transmission risk is one example of science that health officials said can't wait for politics.
She also gets positive marks in Canada, Australia and Japan, although views are mixed in China, where 37 percent say they have confidence in her and 35 percent say they do not. That includes more than 80 percent in Sweden, the Netherlands, Germany, France and Australia. The ruling Democratic Party won just nine seats while independents and smaller parties won two seats.
The gold is free of mercury, which is often used to separate gold from ore and can poison local ecosystems if not carefully disposed of. We should not underestimate the challenge related to leading such a large economy]]> On Monday, Premier Li Keqiang answered questions from Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum Klaus Schwab after delivering a special address at the opening ceremony of the 2016 Summer Davos Forum in Tianjin. As I said in the special address, the central government debt ratio is pretty low and there is room for us to do more in implementing the proactive fiscal policy. We will use fine-tuning measures to address short-term problems, just as I was fine-tuning my earplug to see if the audio services at the meeting venue have satisfied your need. Your mentioned the importance of the fourth industrialization for the future of China's economy. This new round of industrial revolution, however one may call it, is now booming and it is a force that no one can afford to overlook. We are championing mass entrepreneurship and innovation in a bid to bring out as much potential of each individual as possible. Yesterday I was briefed by the Tianjin local officials and learned that the Tianjin municipal government has provided guarantee support and risk compensation for the financing extended to innovation-oriented companies. We will introduce supportive measures to boost the growth of new industries and provide new forms of business reasonable space for growth.
What happened in the past couple of years has shown that the Chinese government has not resorted to massive stimulus measures.
As a result, in the last couple of years, as many as 40,000 new market entities get registered on an average daily basis. Consumption has been on the rise, fast yet steady, and it has exceeded investment in terms of contribution to GDP growth.
The activity rate of newly registered companies this year is higher than last year, standing at above 70%. The priority now is to transform and upgrade the manufacturing sector from low-medium to medium-high level. I hope that CloudFlare will not just work with big companies like Baidu, but also consider partnering with new growth cloud computing companies in China. The middle-income class has diverse needs, so we must ensure that the manufacturing sector is customized and suited to customers' individual needs. Without heavy industries, where do we get the materials for the cellphones and other products? We are firm in our determination to carry on with this effort, not only to meet our domestic need, but also to do what we should for the international community as a responsible major country. Yet it is encouraging that with mass entrepreneurship and innovation, new industries and new forms of business have flourished and added more jobs than we expected, so we are able to ensure that the affected workers will not lose their job but will get re-employed.
China has an incredible economic success and you have depicted China's future economic blueprint on many occasions.
One is the sluggish global economic recovery, which means China's economy, one that is deeply integrated into the world economy, now confronts an uncertain and unstable external environment. We welcome more foreign companies to invest in China and will further ease market access and level the playing field.
China will continue to enforce financial reforms to develop its multitiered capital markets, because on the whole capital markets in China are not yet well-developed, some markets are not yet mature, and the capital markets and direct financing each only takes up a small percentage in China's financial system and in total social financing. We have taken steps to gradually bring down the high ratio by developing multitiered capital markets, market-based debt restructuring, merging and bankruptcy. Your Excellency Premier Li, when I was teaching business policy, I said a successful future has to be based on a grand vision.
I agree with you, Professor Schwab, that we have presented both a grand vision for China's development and concrete details supporting the operationalization of this vision.
After centuries of weathering overfishing, pollution, foreign competition and increasing government regulation, the latest challenge is the one that's doing them in: climate change. The lobster catch in the region sank to about 1.5 million kg in 2013, from a peak of about 10 million kg in 1997. Such a growth has been achieved when the size of the Chinese economy has reached 10 trillion US dollars. Now what policies will the Chinese government introduce to fully leverage the potential of this fourth industrial revolution?
We have seen such examples in our real world that even an intellectually challenged person may demonstrate a genius' talent in certain areas.
This way, the financial institutions, venture capital and angel capital can provide stronger support for developing new industries and upgrading traditional industries. Instead, we have focused on structural reforms, especially supply-side structural reforms to bring out the creativity of each and every individual and potential of the market. My question is about China's strategy to upgrade its manufacturing industry and boost its internet development, specifically the Made in China 2025 and internet+ initiatives.
Hence we introduced the Made in China 2025 and internet+ action plan, which have much commonality with the theme of this year's forum - the fourth industrial revolution.
We need to use the internet to get a better feeling of their needs and make our products accordingly.
Cloud computing is playing a greater role in transforming and upgrading traditional industries by collecting and analyzing massive data to find new pathways to renovate and upgrade traditional industries.
I want to emphasize that China's heavy industry capacity is mainly oriented toward the domestic market, not for large exports.
The central government has allocated 100 billion yuan for this purpose, and asked local governments to come up with matching funds for the re-employment and resettlement of affected workers.
The other challenge is the entwining of our own long-standing problems, the historical extensive mode of development and institutional barriers.
Whether making investment or working in partnership with local companies, the overwhelming majority of the foreign investors would have had reasonable or even fairly high returns when they tally the total scores. I want to emphasize that in the first five months this year, Chinese corporate profits in the industrial sector rose by 6.4%. Just as China's economy, capital markets in China may also experience short-term fluctuations, which are hardly avoidable.
I hope all the business representatives here may try the reverse way: to use the details in your respective industries to prove that China's vision can become a reality. So, the 6.7% growth has generated more additional output than a double digit growth several years ago.
That means there is still more that we can do to pursue financial reform, harness existing funds and enhance the transmission mechanism for the financial sector to better serve the real economy. It seems that we share such an impression among us that if you go to a place dominated by traditional companies or industries, you may see a lot of problems and find the situation disheartening, but if you go to a place or a company which has seized the opportunity of the new round of industrial revolution and where new industries are booming, you feel that the new economy and new drivers are bringing not just hope but powerful strength. These efforts have improved China's economic structure and supported a medium-high growth of the economy. There is also need for interactions with customers, and this will open up a broader market for the manufacturing sector and integrate products with services. As China is taking massive actions to address the issue, how are you going to deal with the economic and social impact of the changes?
And traditional industries are one of the basis for the birth and growth of cloud computing.
Such excess capacity is the result of the sluggish global economic recovery and anemic growth of global trade, so it's a global issue that requires a global solution.
I believe you all have a strong awareness of fulfilling corporate social responsibilities in your business operations.
As CEOs like myself and others being here, is there a way that we can partner with you and how can we help you eliminate these obstacles and challenges? The involvement of foreign companies will introduce new technologies and managerial experience, which can be of help to Chinese companies and industrial upgrading. China is still the most promising investment market in the world and should be the world's most attractive investment destination. That means there is the basis and room for us to bring down the leverage ratio of nonfinancial companies and raise their efficiency.
And you also shared with us this growth rate is quite stable, but there are still very substantial downward pressures. And we have focused on advancing structural reforms and succeeded in sustaining medium-high growth. In a word, we are prepared with a good "toolbox" of macro policy instruments to deal with greater challenges. We live at a time of fast changing market demands and a time when the potential of each individual can be brought out through mass entrepreneurship and innovation and internet+.
Meanwhile, to heed and adopt the views of companies will help us improve our institutions and provide them with better services. We will follow market principles and international practices, and deal with the isolated default cases in accordance with the law.
I think we are all impressed by the picture of China's economy you showed us yesterday and how much it is operationalized.
Now, my question would be: are there any special measures which the Chinese government will take to secure healthy and sustainable economic development? I can also tell you that since last year, growth of Chinese exports has on the whole been in the negative territory. I wish to emphasize that the market should view those short-term fluctuations in China's economy in a calm way. This presents a challenge to the manufacturing sector, but more importantly, an opportunity. We've seen a latest example of that this past week in the aftermath of the Brexit vote in the UK, just how dependent and interconnected our capital markets are.
All in all, we will continue to develop the capital markets to make them more mature and better play their role in underpinning economic development.
We have relied on our internal drivers to spur growth and our domestic market to provide the room for development. When viewed in the whole of the year and in the long run, China's economy will stay within the proper range and maintain steady growth, and we will be able to strike a balance between steady growth and structural adjustment and, by pursing structural reforms especially supply-side structural reforms, achieve more sustainable development. So there is tremendous interest outside of China in the strength and continued development of China's capital markets.
So to summarize, I can only say there are very often, in the world, particularly in the media, doubts and questions.
And we have achieved such growth while tackling the long-standing problems in China's development.
What can the Chinese government continue to do to strengthen and further develop capital markets and the financial system here in China?
But I think you have given great answers to all the questions and I think we will all act as ambassadors for what we have heard here and support the development of China in any way we can. So it is in our interest to carry the message which you shared with us in the last two days.
