At least 17 people died in a fire that swept through a market warehouse in south Moscow early on Tuesday, Russia’s emergencies ministry said. “We believe they were migrant workers who lived at the market,” a ministry spokesperson said. “We are now trying to determine which republic they came from.” Unconfirmed media reports said the migrants all hailed from the former Soviet republic of Tajikistan, an impoverished Central Asian state that supplies large numbers of Moscow’s migrant workers. Many work in poor conditions, often illegally. “The bodies are being identified, but this is difficult as they are all badly burnt,” a Moscow migration service spokesperson said. More»

President Rafael Correa of Ecuador says he will boycott this month's Summit of the Americas in Colombia because Cuba is not invited. Mr. Correa announced the move in a letter to President Juan Manuel Santos of Colombia. He called Washington's veto of Cuban participation "intolerable", saying its exclusion was not by consensus. US President Barack Obama is among regional leaders due to attend the summit, held every three years. "After some reflection I have decided that while I am the president of Ecuador, I will not attend any Summit of the Americas until it begins to make the decisions required," Mr. Correa said in his letter. "There has been talk of lack of consensus, but we all know that this is the veto of foreign powers." More»

Bill Clinton has said he would be “happy” if his wife Hillary ran for president in 2016, despite her insistence that she will bow out of politics next year. “It’s entirely up to her,” Mr Clinton said. “I believe that she’s being absolutely honest with you when she says she doesn’t think she’ll go back into politics. But if she comes home and we do this foundation stuff for the rest of our lives, I’ll be happy. If she changes her mind and decides to run, I’ll be happy.” His comments offer a glimmer of hope for supporters of the former first lady, who suggest she would be the best candidate to prevent a Republican claiming the presidency in 2016.

China will provide Nepal with technology and assistance to build a border land port that will boost trade and serve as a transit point on a proposed railway line, Chinese officials have said. Chinese Ambassador to Nepal Yang Houlan told Nepali officials last week that China is taking forward plans for a “dry port” at Tatopani near the border with Tibet, following discussions held during Premier Wen Jiabao's brief half-day visit to Kathmandu in January. During the visit, both countries also discussed plans for a railway line connecting Nepal and the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR), and agreed to have more frequent high-level visits. Mr. Wen's visit was the first high-level visit since that of the former Premier, Zhu Rongji, in 2001. More»

Union leaders in Britain have accused the British government of cheating hundreds of thousands of low-paid workers out of a £250 pay rise as the 2012 budget has been described as a budget “for millionaires.” Britain’s biggest public sector trade union, Unison, has accused British Chancellor George Osborne of “fooling” hundreds of thousands of low-paid carers, school dinner ladies, cleaners, and teaching assistants across Britain out of a pledged £250 pay rise..  Unison has said that over a year ago Osborne promised a £250 pay rise to the public sector workers who earned less than £21,000 a year.  However, the union has maintained that the low-paid workers have not received the pledged pay rise.  More»

Australia has made a plea for American plumbers, electricians and builders to move down under to fill chronic shortages of skilled workers as the economy struggles to keep up with a resources boom fuelled by demand from China. Industry projections from Australia's employment department show Australia will need 1.3 million extra workers over the next five years, including almost 200,000 more workers for the construction sector. Australia will also need around 320,000 more health care and social assistance workers. More»

The South African government late on Sunday announced it collected more than 742 billion rands (about 98 billion U.S. dollars) tax revenue in 2011-2012 fiscal year. The tax revenue collected by the South African Revenue Service (SARS) has exceeded its target by four billion rands for the fiscal year that ended on March 31, over 68 billion rands more than the previous fiscal year, said Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan in the administrative capital Pretoria. The tax revenue increase in the fiscal year was driven by the strong performances of import taxes, recovery of the corporate profits and resilient consumption, the South African official Bua News Agency reported on Sunday.

Flood-ravaged Fiji declared a state of emergency on Sunday and warned tourists to stay away for the time being, as heavy rain and high winds continued to pound the South Pacific nation. Officials said they could not guarantee visitors' safety in the wake of flash floods that have killed at least two people and forced more than 5 000 to take shelter in evacuation centres. With roads to the international airport in Nadi cut off and extreme weather expected to continue until Tuesday, officials asked airlines not to bring in any more tourists until Monday at the earliest.
