World - Abbas`s Fatah opens first congress since 2009


Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas`s Fatah party opened its first congress in seven years Tuesday as the 81-year-old seeks to fend off opponents while talk of who will eventually succeed him mounts. The election of members of Fatah`s parliament and its central committee beginning Friday will signal the direction the oldest Palestinian party will take at a time when Abbas is weakened by his own unpopularity and internal dissent. Abbas, whose position as party head is not threatened at the congress, will give an address at 6 pm (1600 GMT) on Tuesday.

World - Kuwaitis vote in austerity-focused poll, energized by opposition


By Sami Aboudi and Ahmed Hagagy KUWAIT (Reuters) - Kuwaitis voted on Saturday in an election energized by the participation of opposition candidates for the first time since 2012 and focused on recent government austerity measures aimed at tackling the oil-rich nation`s deficit. The parliament of Western-allied Kuwait was due to run until July 2017, but the emir, Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah, dissolved it in October, saying `security challenges` in the region - an apparent reference to wars in Iraq and Syria - should be met by consulting the popular will. `I hope we will have a better parliament than the previous one,` said a 22-year-old Islamic Waqf Affairs ministry employee after she voted for the first time at a girls` school in the upper middle class al-Rawda district in southern Kuwait City.

Business - U.S. health spending in 2015 rose at fastest rate since 2007


Growth rose 5.8 percent to $3.2 trillion, or $9,990 per person, according to federal data published in the independent journal Health Affairs and compiled into a report by officials with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. After five years of historically low growth between 2009 and 2013, spending picked up in 2014 and 2015 as the Affordable Care Act - sometimes referred to as Obamacare - expanded health insurance coverage through marketplace insurance plans and Medicaid, the report said. Over the two-year period between 2013 and 2015 the number of people with private health insurance rose 2.5 percent on average to 9.7 million.

Business - Oil softens after OPEC decision prompts big weekly rally


Oil prices fell 1.5 percent to steady at around $53 a barrel on Friday after the biggest weekly rally since 2009 following OPEC`s decision this week to cut crude output in order to rein in a global glut.

Front-month Brent crude futures were down 81 cents by 1153 GMT (6:53 a.m. ET) from their last settlement at $53.12 per barrel.
