    Australia is set to introduce new counter-terrorism laws, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said Sunday, with the package expected to include stripping dual nationals who are linked to terrorism of their citizenship. There has also been speculation that the plan to amend citizenship laws, which was disclosed in February, could affect second-generation Australians who carry only one passport. "It's long been the case that if you have served with the armed forces of a country at war with Australia, you automatically lose your citizenship," Abbott told reporters.

  • Rosberg takes Monaco hat-trick after Mercedes gaffe

    Germany's Nico Rosberg celebrated a surprise hat-trick of Monaco Grand Prix victories on Sunday after Mercedes blew championship-leading team mate Lewis Hamilton's chances with a needless pitstop. The result, with double Formula One world champion Hamilton finishing third just when victory seemed assured, slashed Hamilton's overall lead to 10 points after six of the season's 19 races. "I've lost the race haven't I?" the disconsolate Briton enquired over the team radio after rejoining in third place behind Rosberg and Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, neither of whom pitted.

  • Eiffel Tower reopens after staff walk out over pickpockets

    Paris's iconic Eiffel Tower was shut to tourists for several hours on Friday as staff walked off the job to protest a surge in gangs of pickpockets roaming around the monument. The closure of one of the busiest tourist attractions in the French capital ahead of a long holiday weekend recalled a similar strike at the Louvre museum in 2013 as staff protested against the often violent pickpockets stalking the halls of the palace. Workers at the 126-year-old iron lattice tower -- a glittering symbol of Paris -- finally went back to work at around 4:00 pm (1400 GMT), after hundreds of disappointed tourists were turned away throughout the day.

  • Abandoned Tube station used by Churchill awaits new tenant

    An abandoned Underground station used by Winston Churchill as a bunker during World War II could become London's latest go-to bar or gallery under a plan launched by the city's transport agency. The facade has lost its sign but kept the traditional crimson-red tiles once used for stations on the Underground, the oldest metro system in the world. Now Transport for London (TfL) hopes it will be the first of seven or eight off-limits empty stations under the capital to be leased for commercial use.

  • Next-generation plane engines take a LEAP towards delivery

    If there's one key selling point that aerospace giants Airbus and Boeing have both been using in marketing their new aircraft, it is fuel efficiency. It is in fact largely down to French company Safran and GE, whose joint venture CFM International is making the LEAP motors that will power most of the next-generation of the planes which will be the future workhorses of airlines. The promise of 15 to 20 percent fuel savings moved closer as LEAP engines made their first flight tests that are a key step for the Airbus320neo to enter service next year and Boeing's B737 MAX in 2017 as planned.

  • Iraq regains ground from Islamic State; mass deaths reported in Palmyra

    BAGHDAD/BEIRUT (Reuters) - Iraqi forces recaptured territory from advancing Islamic State militants near the recently-fallen city of Ramadi on Sunday, while in Syria the government said the Islamists had killed hundreds of people since capturing the town of Palmyra. The fall of Ramadi and Palmyra, on opposite ends of the vast territory controlled by Islamic State fighters, were the militant group's biggest successes since a U.S.-led coalition launched an air war to stop them last year. The near simultaneous victories against the Iraqi and Syrian armies have forced Washington to examine its strategy, which involves bombing from the air but leaving fighting on the ground to local forces in both countries.

  • Australian Dollar Recovery May Resume After US-Linked Interlude

    The Australian Dollar turned lower last week, breaking the win streak against its US counterpart established in early April. As we suspected, the move appeared to reflect repositioning ahead of the release of minutes from last month’s FOMC meeting and April’s CPI report. Meanwhile, the greenback launched a broad-based recovery against all of its top counterparts including AUD, presumably amid bargain-hunting after five consecutive weeks of losses on the off-chance that either FOMC rhetoric or a pop in price growth might fuel rebuilding Fed rate hike speculation.
