  • S. Korean firms begin pull-out from industrial park in North

    South Korean companies prepared Thursday to begin pulling out of a jointly-run industrial zone in North Korea after Seoul shut it down to punish Kim Jong-Un's regime for its recent nuclear test and rocket launch. Wednesday's announcement to close the Kaesong complex took many by surprise, given that South Korea had always allowed it to remain open despite serious provocations in the past. Defending what it called an "unavoidable" decision, the South said North Korea had been using the hundreds of millions of dollars in hard-currency cash that it earned from Kaesong to fund its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programmes.

  • Pope faces Mexicans worshipping skeletal 'Death Saint'

    Two weeks after baptizing her at a Catholic church, baby Adriana's parents put her in a white gown again for a second sacrament: This time, with Mexico's skeletal "Death Saint." As they held the sleepy three-month-old child, a priestess sprinkled holy water infused with rose petals on her in front of 300 people under a 22-meter (72-foot) statue of the Grim Reaper-like "Santa Muerte" in a Mexico City suburb. When Pope Francis arrives in Mexico for a five-day visit on Friday, he will find a country where devotion to Santa Muerte is growing fast despite the Vatican's rejection of the figure as blasphemous. Every Sunday, a big crowd comes to Enriqueta Vargas' outdoor temple in Tultitlan to pray in front of the black fiber-glass statue, which was erected in 2007 in a lot and can be seen from a busy boulevard.

  • 'Uncertainty' over China's yuan fuels market turmoil: Yellen

    US Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said Wednesday that China's unclear policy over its yuan currency was stoking turbulence in global markets and exacerbating global economic growth concerns. The yuan's recent declines "have intensified uncertainty about China's exchange rate policy and the prospects for its economy," she said in testimony to Congress. "This uncertainty led to increased volatility in global financial markets and, against the background of persistent weakness abroad, exacerbated concerns about the outlook for global growth." Although she expressed confidence that China's economy was not facing an abrupt stall, the US central bank chief said the overall uncertainty emanating from the world's second-largest economy was behind some of the steep falls in global commodities prices, in turn stressing the economies of exporters.
