Crude Oil Lower; OPEC Disputes and Virus Cases Weigh

Oil markets slipped Friday as the resurgence of Covid-19 cases, particularly in the U.S., the largest consumer in the world, threatened the recovery of crude demand. At 7:30 AM ET (11:30 GMT), U.S. crude futures traded 1.2% lower at $40.15 a barrel. The international benchmark Brent contract rose 1.3% to $42.58. The U.S. has recorded around a quarter of the almost 11 million cases worldwide, according to data from Johns Hopkins University, and the number is growing rapidly. The U.S....

Dollar Rises as Risk Appetite Tempered by Rising COVID-19 Cases in U.S.

The dollar edged up on Friday but was set for its biggest weekly fall since the start of June, as a sentiment boost from better-than-expected jobs data in the United States was tempered by surging coronavirus cases. The U.S. Labor Department said on Thursday that payrolls surged in June but the reaction in currencies was limited. Even after two months of job recovery from May, the U.S. economy has regained just over a third of an historic plunge of 20.787 million jobs lost in April. Against...

US Senate Passes Bill Targeting Entities Over China's Hong Kong Security Law

The U.S. Senate approved a bill Thursday that would penalize individuals or companies for conducting business with Chinese officials responsible for implementing Beijing's new national security law on Hong Kong. The Republican-led Senate unanimously passed the Hong Kong Autonomy Act one day after the Democratic majority House approved the measure without opposition.

Colombia Arrests 8 More Suspects in Police Academy Car Bombing

Colombia has captured eight leftist rebels accused of killing at least 22 people in a bombing attack on a police academy. The National Liberation Army (ELN) claimed responsibility for the January 2019 car bombing in the capital Bogota. The rebel group claimed the attack was in retaliation for President Ivan Dugue™s refusal to respect a unilateral cease-fire declared by the leftist group in 2018. Duque on Thursday praised police and prosecutors for arresting those behind the terrorist...

Protesters in Kosovo Oppose President's Nominee for Prime Minister
Friday, 29 May 2020 17:54 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Protesters supporting Kosovo's ruling Self-Determination Movement, or Vetevendosje!,  took to the streets of Pristina, the capital, Thursday to oppose President Hashim Thaci's nominee to be the country's new prime minister after the Constitutional Court upheld his decree for the nomination.

A poster read ''We want elections,'' and a banner said, ''On the side of justice, not the president.''

Arlind Manxhuka, a spokesperson for Vetevendosje!, said the peaceful gathering of a few thousand supporters was intended to show the party's ability to organize a protest while respecting coronavirus pandemic restrictions.

''Taking into consideration the many requests we received from activists and citizens to organize a protest against the latest political developments in our country [Kosovo], we felt obligated to demonstrate a way in which an eventual protest could be held in this new condition of the COVID-19 pandemic,'' he said.

Thaci nominated Avdullah Hoti, from the center-right Democratic League of Kosovo, or LDK, to replace acting Prime Minister Albin Kurti, who lost a no-confidence vote in March.  That vote was spurred by the LDK, then a junior partner in governing coalition with Vetevendosje!

The movement argues Hoti's nomination to form a new government is unconstitutional, saying that it is the only party entitled to do so because it won the most seats in Kosovo's October parliamentary election. It has further said that if it cannot form a government, the country should hold new elections.

The LDK says it has at least the 61 votes in the 120-seat parliament, required for his confirmation.

Kosovo's Constitutional Court had suspended the nomination decree until May 29.
