World - Ten migrants die in Mediterranean, a thousand rescued

By Steve Scherer ROME (Reuters) - At least 10 North African migrants died when their rubber boat overturned in the southern Mediterranean while almost a thousand more from a total of seven vessels were rescued in a single day this week, Italian and Tunisian authorities said on Wednesday. The Italian coast guard said in a statement that one of its ships in the area had rescued 121 people after their boat capsized on Tuesday some 50 miles north of Libya. Several merchant ships assisted in migrant rescues from seven separate boats in a 24-hour period, bringing to safety almost 1,000 migrants, including 30 children and 50 women, one of them pregnant, the coast guard said. Last month, more than 300 people died in a one-week period trying to cross the sea from Libya to Italy, whose southern island of Lampedusa is just 300 kilometres (186 miles) from the Libyan capital of Tripoli.

World - Egypt confirms jail terms for police over activist death

An Egyptian court upheld Wednesday 10-year jail terms against two policemen convicted of killing an activist whose death rallied protesters in the 2011 revolt that toppled ex-strongman Hosni Mubarak. In March 2014, a lower court handed the two policemen the jail terms after a retrial for the manslaughter and torture of Khalid Saeed in 2010 at an Internet cafe in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria. The Court of Cassation rejected the policemen`s appeal against that verdict, a judicial official said, adding that Wednesday`s ruling was final. A Facebook group entitled `We are all Khaled Saeed` helped organise the 18-day protests that drove Mubarak`s police force from the streets and forced him to resign in February 2011.

World - China says 2015 defense budget to rise about 10 percent

China`s defense budget this year will rise about 10 percent compared with 2014, the spokeswoman for the country`s parliament said on Wednesday, outpacing the slowing Chinese economy as the country ramps up investment in high-tech equipment.

World - Day after Netanyahu warning, U.S. and Iran make `some progress` on nuclear talks

By Arshad Mohammed MONTREUX, Switzerland (Reuters) - The U.S. and Iranian foreign ministers wrapped up three days of talks over Iran`s nuclear programme on Wednesday, a day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the deal being negotiated was a serious mistake. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Iran`s Mohammad Javad Zarif have negotiated for more than 10 hours since Monday in the Swiss lakeside town of Montreux, hoping to work out a framework deal by late March. `We expect that we (and the Iranians) will regroup bilaterally, with the European Union present as well, on the 15th of March, location to be confirmed but most likely Geneva.` Asked if he thought they had made progress, Zarif told reporters: `We have, but a lot of work remains.` However, Netanyahu`s controversial speech to the U.S. Congress on Tuesday, where he harshly criticised the diplomatic efforts to resolve the dispute, may make it harder for the Obama administration to sell the potential deal back home.
