Last week, the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) charged Israel for its latest invasion of Gaza calling its aerial bombing of civilian areas "disproportionate and indiscriminate"; by July 22, the bombing had killed over 650 civilians. The Council, convened at the request of Palestine, Egypt and Pakistan, voted to launch an investigation into Israel's military offensive.

In a well-lit office with red window frames in downtown Bucharest, Romania's first bitcoin ATM attracts many who until it opened in May had to buy or sell the digital currency face-to-face or through wire transfers. The interest in bitcoin in Romania stands out in a region where national currencies are widely seen as poor substitutes for the euro.
As new chief concierge at a top "palace" hotel in Paris, Sonia Papet is part of a tiny elite of women who have entered the traditionally male realm. She took on the job last month at the prestigious Hotel Le Bristol on the chic rue du Faubourg St Honore, which is decked out with Baccarat crystal chandeliers, Carara marble and Gobelin tapestries and boasts a chef with three Michelin stars. Few other women have broken through the hospitality glass ceiling.
This is the second of a two-part series discussing the IMF third staff report as well as the Letter of Intent submitted by the government with respect to commitments made by the government to the Fund and their likely impact on sectors and the general public.
Corporate America can learn a lot from a chicken burrito. As many companies struggle to boost prices without alienating consumers, they may want to study Mexican-food chain Chipotle, which has managed to do both. Companies including Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc, Apple Inc and PepsiCo have shown they're able to take advantage of quality, trendiness, and, in the case of Pepsi's snack foods, market dominance, to maintain high prices or even raise them faster than the inflation rate, now at about 2.1 percent in the US Chipotle raised chicken-dish prices by 5 percent this year after leaving them untouched since 2011, and sales went up 29 percent last quarter.
India sits on one of the world's biggest coal reserves, yet its power stations are starved of the fuel with some idle and others running dangerously low on supplies. Coal accounts for nearly 60 percent of India's electricity, and the country's biggest utility company warned the government this month that supplies at many plants were severely depleted.
Ever since the establishment of Pakistan on 14, August 1947 its relations with India have been at best cold and at worst hostile. All attempts by both the civilian and military governments and all shades of political parties of Pakistan have not broken the ice with either of the two main political groups in India; the Congress and the Hindu Mahasabha (BJP).
