  • Separatists say will allow 'trapped' Ukrainian forces to withdraw

    By Alexei Anishchuk and Anton Zverev MOSCOW/DONETSK Ukraine (Reuters) - Pro-Moscow rebels fighting in Ukraine said on Friday they would comply with a request from the Kremlin and open up a 'humanitarian corridor' to allow the withdrawal of Ukrainian troops they have encircled.

Kiev has accused Russian troops of illegally entering eastern Ukraine and, backed by its U.S. Russia stands accused of pushing troops and weapons into the former Soviet republic to shore up a separatist rebellion that a week ago appeared to be on its last legs.

The Islamic State's campaign of extreme violence and abuses against both civilians and rival opposition groups has prompted a backlash across rebel-held Syria, where many hope the US air campaign next door will be extended.

    After the riots, Ferguson businesses long for normal

    By Edward McAllister FERGUSON Mo. (Reuters) - When Ferguson business owner Chantelle Nickson-Clark spoke at a St. Louis County council meeting this week, her voice shook with anger. The Swiish Bar and Grill she owns in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson was forced to shut for 17 days after the police shooting of an unarmed black teen on Aug. 9 sparked violent clashes between police and protesters and led law enforcement to close the area in front of her building. "We are hurting and it's unfair." Clark's concerns are echoed by small independent business owners along the half-mile (0.8-km) stretch of West Florissant Avenue, the four-lane street that became the epicenter of protests after 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. While the protests have died down in recent days and many businesses are trying to return to normal, store owners whose properties were looted during the unrest or who have lost trade because of it fear they will not survive.
