World - Turkey hosts Internet forum despite `abysmal` web freedom record

Turkey on Tuesday began hosting a major UN-backed forum on Internet governance despite criticism of its `abysmal` record for limiting Internet rights. The Internet Governance Forum (IGF) is an annual global gathering that aims to bring together governments, activists and business to discuss how to regulate and encourage use of the web. `We need to spread knowledge and share the benefits of the Internet through bridging the digital divide,` said UN Assistant Secretary General Thomas Gaas as the four-day meeting opened. Yet the choice of Istanbul as the venue for the meeting has been highly contentious, given Turkey`s patchy record on Internet freedoms which included temporary bans on YouTube and Twitter this year.

Business - Bullish U.S. manufacturing, construction data bolster growth outlook

The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) said on Tuesday its index of national factory activity rose to 59.0 last month, the highest reading since March 2011, from 57.1 in July. Separately, the Commerce Department said construction spending increased 1.8 percent to an annual rate of $981.31 billion, the highest level since December 2008. July`s percentage rise in construction spending was the largest since May 2012 and reflected gains across all categories, with the exception of federal government. Economists had forecast construction spending increasing 1.0 percent after a previously reported 1.8 percent drop in June.

World - Top Asian News at 10:00 a.m. GMT

BEIRUT (AP) — Al-Qaida-linked Syrian rebels holding 45 Fijian peacekeepers hostage have issued a set of demands for their release, including the extremist group`s removal from a U.N. terrorist list and compensation for the killing of three of its fighters in a shootout with international troops, an official said Tuesday. The Nusra Front seized the Fijians on Thursday in the Golan Heights, where a 1,200-strong U.N. force monitors the buffer zone between Syria and Israel. The rebels also surrounded two Filipino units, but those U.N. troops escaped over the weekend.

World - Scientists use E.coli bacteria to create fossil fuel alternative

British and Finnish scientists have found a way of generating renewable propane using a bacterium widely found in the human intestine and say the finding is a step to commercial production of a fuel that could one day be an alternative to fossil fuel reserves. `Although we have only produced tiny amounts so far, the fuel we have produced is ready to be used in an engine straight away,` said Patrik Jones of the department of life sciences at Imperial College London, who worked on the research. He said while work is at a very early stage, possibly 5-10 years from the point where commercial production would be possible, his team`s findings were proof of concept for a way of producing renewable fuel now only accessible from fossil reserves. It is already produced as a by-product during natural gas processing and petrol refining, but both of these are fossil fuels that will one day run out.

World - Nishikori beats Raonic in record-tying late finish

Japan`s Kei Nishikori booked a US Open quarter-final berth on Tuesday morning with a five-set victory over Milos Raonic that equalled the latest-finishing contests in the tournament`s history. Nishikori, the 10th seed, defeated the fifth-seeded Canadian 4-6, 7-6 (7/4), 6-7 (6/8), 7-5, 6-4 and will face Australian Open champion Stan Wawrinka for a place in the semi-finals. The 2:26 am (0626 GMT) finish equalled the record for the latest at the US Open shared by two prior contests: Philipp Kohlschreiber`s 6-4, 3-6, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 third-round win over John Isner on September 3, 2012 and Mats Wilander`s 7-6 (7/3), 3-6, 1-6, 7-6 (8/6), 6-4 win over Swedish compatriot Mikael Pernfors in a second round match in 1993. Nishikori, the first Japanese man to break into the top 10 in the world rankings, avenged a loss to Raonic in the fourth round at Wimbledon and reached the last eight of a Grand Slam for the second time after his quarter-final run at the 2012 Australian Open.

World - Attack on army convoy kills 10 in Egypt`s Sinai: security sources

An attack on an army convoy in Egypt`s Sinai Peninsula killed 10 soldiers on Tuesday, security and medical sources said. Militants in the Sinai have stepped up attacks on policemen and soldiers since then-army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi toppled President Mohamed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood in July 2013. The attacks initially targeted security forces in Sinai -- a remote but strategic part of Egypt located between Israel, the Gaza Strip and the Suez Canal -- but they have since extended their reach, with bombings on the mainland.
