World - Calls for Roche to cut price of breast cancer drugs


Pharmaceutical giant Roche was on Wednesday urged to cut the cost of a groundbreaking breast cancer drug that the NHS is set to phase out in 2016. NHS watchdog NICE recommended that the use of trastuzumab emtansine be stopped due to its £90,000 cost, even though it can add months of life to women dying of breast cancer. It is currently available in England under the Cancer Drugs Fund, but this will end in 2016. The drug, which attacks cancerous cells from within thus avoiding many of the side effects of chemotherapy, could potentially help a fifth of breast cancer sufferers.

World - 20 years on, Mandela`s party faces tough test in South Africa


Twenty years after the euphoria of South Africa`s first democratic elections swept liberation hero Nelson Mandela to power, the ruling party faces its toughest test at the polls next month. Rampant corruption and a failure to erase apartheid`s enduring legacy of abject poverty have sown social and political discontent in what is one of the most unequal nations on earth. Rocked by scandal and bereft of the iconic Mandela after his death in December, the African National Congress (ANC)is still expected to win the elections easily but could see its majority trimmed. A group of formerly stalwart ANC supporters led by high-profile former intelligence minister Ronnie Kasrils last week urged voters to signal their disappointment by voting for one of several small opposition parties or spoiling their ballots.

World - U.S. to deliver Apache helicopters to Egypt, relaxing hold on aid


By Phil Stewart and Arshad Mohammed WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States said on Tuesday it will deliver 10 Apache attack helicopters to Egypt, relaxing a suspension of aid imposed after Egypt`s armed forces ousted President Mohamed Mursi last year and cracked down violently on protesters. U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel informed his Egyptian counterpart of the decision to lift a hold on delivery of the helicopters, which would support Egypt`s counterterrorism operations in the Sinai Peninsula, the Pentagon said. `We believe these new helicopters will help the Egyptian government counter extremists who threaten U.S., Egyptian, and Israeli security,` Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said in a statement, recounting Hagel`s conversation with Egyptian Defense Minister Colonel Sedki Sobhi. Behind the move was a decision by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to certify to Congress that Egypt met key criteria allowing Washington to free up some aid, suspended last year after Egyptian authorities used violence to put down protests after the military ousted Mursi in July.
