World - Indian landslide kills 10, scores feared trapped

By Sruthi Gottipati NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Heavy rain triggered a landslide in rural western India that killed at least ten people and trapped up to 150 more after thick mud came crashing down on thatch huts and brick houses on Wednesday, a national disaster official said. Seven teams of 42 rescue workers each arrived at the disaster site, a village 60 km (37 miles) from the city of Pune, but rain, mud and poor communications hampered efforts, Sandeep Rai Rathore, inspector general of the national disaster force, told Reuters. `The figure, it could be up to 150.` At least 30 brick houses and thatch huts were badly damaged in the village in the Ambegaon sub-district, he said. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi directed the home minister to rush to Pune to take stock of the situation.

World - Up to 150 people feared trapped in landslide in India

Heavy rain triggered a landslide in India on Wednesday burying up to 150 people and rescuers were struggling through mud to try to reach them, a disaster official said. The first batch of emergency workers had arrived at the scene, 60 km (37 miles) from the western city of Pune, but the rain, mud and poor communications were hampering rescue efforts, Sandeep Rai Rathore, inspector general of the national disaster force, told Reuters. Rainy season downpours, though vital for India`s agriculture, often bring disaster. Unprecedented rain in June last year wreaked havoc across India`s Himalayan state of Uttarakhand, causing rivers and lakes to burst their banks, inundating towns and villages and killing thousands of people.

Business - BSkyB to pay $9 billion to create Sky Europe

By Kate Holton and Leila Abboud LONDON/PARIS (Reuters) - Britain`s BSkyB has agreed to pay $9 billion to buy Rupert Murdoch`s pay-TV companies in Germany and Italy, taking its hunt for growth into Europe by creating a media powerhouse with 20 million customers. BSkyB, in which Murdoch`s 21st Century Fox is also the largest shareholder, will pay for the deal using cash, debt, its stake in a TV channel and a placing of shares that represents around 10 percent of its issued share capital. BSkyB had flagged a possible deal for Sky Deutschland and Sky Italia in May. The price announced on Friday was slightly lower than expected by some analysts and the cost and revenue benefits laid out by BSkyB were greater than anticipated.

Business - Murdoch`s 21st Century Fox pledges to extend buybacks

Rupert Murdoch`s 21st Century Fox said on Friday it would renew a share buyback program using the proceeds from its partial exit from European pay-TV, regardless of any acquisitions the media group undertakes. The company made the pledge in a statement announcing the sale of Fox`s Italian and German pay-TV units to BSkyB for $9 billion in cash and assets. `For fiscal 2015 we will continue our share buyback program and will communicate the details of a renewed share buyback authorization upon the announcement of fiscal 2014 earnings results on Wednesday, August 6, 2014.` In August 2013, Fox`s board authorized a $4 billion share buyback over the next 12 months. Murdoch, chairman and CEO, added: `Our renewed authorization for our share buyback program will be executed regardless of any potential acquisition or investment activity by the Company.` Fox recently made an unsolicited $80 billion bid for media conglomerate Time Warner, which was rejected by its management as too low.

World - Food scare driving away Yum, McDonald`s diners in China

A food safety scare in China is testing local consumers` loyalty to foreign fast-food brands, including McDonald`s Corp and Yum Brands Inc, which owns the KFC and Pizza Hut chains. Yum said on Wednesday that the scare, triggered by a TV report earlier this month showing improper meat handling by a supplier, Shanghai Husi Food, caused `significant, negative` damage to sales at KFC and Pizza Hut restaurants over the past 10 days. `If the significant sales impact is sustained, it will have a material effect on full-year earnings per share,` Yum said in a regulatory filing. Shares in Yum, which counts China as its No. 1 market, tumbled nearly 7 percent on Thursday.
