Market news:

  • CIA chief pulled from Pakistan; drones kill 54 Dec 17, 2021 06:42 PM

    • ISLAMABAD - The CIA yanked its top spy out of Pakistan after his cover was blown and his life threatened, and 54 suspected militants were killed in a U.S. drone missile attack Friday in stark new signs of the troubled relationship between mistrustful allies locked in a war on terror groups.
    • The CIA's decision to remove its Islamabad station chief comes at a pivotal moment.
    • A lawsuit filed last month in New York City in connection with the 2008 terror attacks in Mumbai, India, also may have raised tensions, by naming Pakistan's intelligence chief as a defendant.
      • Russian whistle-blowing doctor fears dismissal Dec 17, 2021 06:29 PM

        • MOSCOW - A Russian cardiologist said he feared dismissal and beating after phoning Vladimir Putin to say that an impressive hospital display for the premier was faked.
        • Ivan Khrenov told Putin during a live call-in show Thursday that his bosses instructed doctors and nurses to show fake pay slips and pose as recovering patients surrounded by new equipment during the premier's November visit to a hospital in the central town of Ivanovo.
        • Khrenov told Putin that the equipment was borrowed from other hospitals and the doctors were forced to say their salaries were about $1,000 a month - far less than their real income.
          • NKorea warns SKorea to stop live-fire drills Dec 17, 2021 06:29 PM

            • SEOUL, South Korea - North Korea warned South Korea on Friday not to stage artillery drills on a front-line island the North bombed last month, saying it would hit back even harder than in the previous attack that killed four South Koreans.
            • The North warned the South against similar drills before the Nov. 23 shelling that destroyed homes and renewed fears of war on the divided peninsula.
            • South Korea has said it plans one-day, live-fire drills sometime between Saturday and Tuesday on Yeonpyeong, a tiny island that is home to fishing communities and military bases and sits just seven miles (11 kilometers) from North Korean shores.
              • Pakistani officials: US missiles kill 54 in NW Dec 17, 2021 06:29 PM

                • PESHAWAR, Pakistan - Three American missile attacks killed 54 alleged militants Friday close to the Afghan border, an unusually high number of victims that included commanders of a Taliban-allied group that were holding a meeting, Pakistani officials said.
                • That could indicate a possible expansion of the CIA-led covert campaign of drone strikes inside Pakistani territory.
                • The Obama administration has intensified missile attacks in northwest Pakistan since taking office, desperate to weaken insurgent networks there that U.S. officials say are behind much of the violence against U.S. troops just across the frontier in Afghanistan.
                  • Bones found on island might be Amelia Earhart's Dec 17, 2021 06:18 PM

                    • NORMAN, Okla. - The three bone fragments turned up on a deserted South Pacific island that lay along the course Amelia Earhart was following when she vanished.
                    • Now scientists at the University of Oklahoma hope to extract DNA from the tiny bone chips in tests that could prove Earhart died as a castaway after failing in her 1937 quest to become the first woman to fly around the world.
                    • "There's no guarantee," said Ric Gillespie, director of the International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery, a group of aviation enthusiasts in Delaware that found the pieces of bone this year while on an expedition to Nikumaroro Island, about 1,800 miles south of Hawaii.
