  • Losing another final with Argentina is torture - Mascherano

    By Felipe Iturrieta SANTIAGO (Reuters) - Losing a second major final in a year was absolute torture for Argentina, midfield general Javier Mascherano said after Chile beat them on penalties to win the Copa America on Saturday. Argentina were beaten by Germany in the World Cup final last July and Saturday's 4-1 loss on penalties following a 0-0 draw after extra time left them still looking for a first major trophy since the 1993 Copa America. "Losing is torture, it’s a huge sadness," said Mascherano, one of the few Argentina players to talk to reporters after the final at Santiago's National Stadium.

  • German anti-euro party marks shift to right with new leader

    Germany's Alternative for Germany (AfD) party ousted its co-founder and frontman Bernd Lucke Saturday to elect a new leader from its right wing, signalling a shift in focus to immigration from its anti-euro origins. Frauke Petry, who heads a national conservative faction within the fledgling AfD, won a clear majority at a two-day extraordinary party congress in the western city of Essen, which gathered about 3,500 members. The party had been riven by a months-long power struggle between Lucke, 52, its economic neo-liberal leader and founder, and 40-year-old Petry, with analysts even warning it could implode.

  • Serena v Venus at Wimbledon as Djokovic, Sharapova cruise

  • Greece votes on high-stakes bailout referendum

    Greeks started casting ballots early Sunday in the closely watched bailout referendum, with opinion polls showing people evenly split on whether to accept creditors' proposals for more austerity in exchange for rescue loans, or defiantly reject the deal. Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is gambling the future of his 5-month-old left-wing government on the snap poll, called last weekend — insisting that a "no" vote would strengthen his hand to negotiate a better deal with the country's creditors, and a "yes" would be a capitulation to their harsh demands. The opposition accuses Tsipras of jeopardizing the country's membership in the eurozone and says a "yes" vote is about keeping the common currency.

  • Fatal fire on Japan's airtight bullet train exposes lapses

    A fatal fire on Japan's bullet train, started by a man who self-immolated this week, has revealed blind spots in a system renowned for its speed, punctuality and safety record. On Tuesday, Haruo Hayashizaki, a 71-year-old retiree, poured a flammable liquid over himself and lit it while riding a bullet train heading to Osaka from Tokyo. Experts say it was a wake-up call to something more disastrous, potentially a terrorist attack, and it's time to step up risk management ahead of the G-7 summit in Japan next year and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

  • Federer still not happy with Hawkeye

    By Pritha Sarkar LONDON (Reuters) - If it is so dark that Hawkeye stops working, then matches should be called off at Wimbledon, Roger Federer said on Saturday. For the second year running, Tomas Berdych found himself playing into the night at Wimbledon even though technology had given up the ghost. Twelve months ago, Berdych was left fuming after he slumped to a third round defeat by Marin Cilic that finished at 9.38pm local time -- the latest finish at the All England Club outside of Centre Court.

  • Greek villagers' secret weapon: Grow your own food

    Ilias Mathes has protection against bank closures, capital controls and the slashing of his pension: 10 goats, some hens and a vegetable patch. If Greece's financial crisis deepens, as many believe it must, he can feed his children and grandchildren with the bounty of the land in this proud village high in the mountains of the Arcadia Peloponnese. "I have my lettuce, my onions, I have my hens, my birds, I will manage," he said, even though he can no longer access his full pension payment because of government controls imposed six days ago.

  • Airstrikes hit multiple IS targets in Syria stronghold

    US-led coalition forces said they carried out a series of 16 airstrikes Saturday on the Islamic State in its Syrian stronghold of Raqa, in one of the biggest assaults on the extremists. "The significant airstrikes tonight were executed to deny Daesh (IS) the ability to move military capabilities throughout Syria and into Iraq," spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Gilleran said in a coalition statement. "This was one of the largest deliberate engagements we have conducted to date in Syria and it will have debilitating effects on Daesh's ability to move from Raqa." Coalition forces "successfully engaged multiple targets" throughout Raqa -- the extremists' de facto capital -- the statement said, destroying IS structures and transit routes.

  • Brave dog Leo honored with monument in Serbian town

    Normally, Leo would run away at the sight of a bigger dog. When a raging bull-mastiff cross-breed last year attacked a 10-year-old girl, Leo fearlessly jumped to her rescue, barking and biting at the dog way above his size and strength. Leo paid with his life, but the citizens of this northern Serbian town have not forgotten.
