AMSTERDAM, Oct 26 (Reuters) - A Dutch appeals court ruled on Tuesday that a collection of ancient Crimean gold artefacts, claimed by Ukraine and museums in the Russian-annexed territory, should be returned to the Ukrainian state. "The Allard Pierson Museum is no longer obliged to return the pieces to the Crimean museums," the ruling said. "The rights of the Ukrainian state, based on the Law of Museums ... take precedence." The appeals court partially reversed the lower court's decision in 2019, finding that it had wrongly ruled that only governments could claim objects as cultural heritage. The University of Amsterdam, owner of the Allard Pierson Museum, has said the museum will continue to keep the objects in storage until all appeals are settled.

Explainer: Climate change: what are the economic stakes?
  + stars: | 2021-10-25 | by ( Mark John | ) www.reuters.com   time to read: +6 min
The stakes for the planet are huge - among them the impact on economic livelihoods the world over and the future stability of the global financial system. Here are 10 climate change-related questions that economic policy-makers are trying to answer:1) HOW MUCH DOES CLIMATE CHANGE COST? From floods and fires to conflict and migration: economic models struggle with the many possible knock-on effects from global warming. But so far only a fifth of global carbon emissions are covered by such programmes, pricing carbon on average at a mere $3 a tonne. That's well below the $75/tonne the IMF says is needed to cap global warming at well below 2°C.

Saudi imports from UAE jump back up in August

DUBAI, Oct 25 (Reuters) - The value of Saudi Arabia’s imports from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in August increased by about 31% month on month, official data showed on Monday, jumping back from a steep decline in July after the kingdom imposed new rules on imports from other Gulf countries. Imports from neighbouring UAE rose to 4.1 billion riyals ($1.09 billion) from 3.1 billion riyals in July, according to data from the General Authority for Statistics. On an annual basis, UAE imports increased by about 47%. The monthly increase follows a 33% decline in July, when Saudi Arabia amended rules on imports from other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries to exclude goods made in free zones or using Israeli input from preferential tariff concessions, a move seen as a challenge the UAE’s status as the region’s trade and business hub.

On Saturday, Erdogan said he had ordered the envoys be declared 'persona non grata' for seeking philanthropist Osman Kavala's release from prison. The lira hit a fresh all-time low in early Asian trade, weakening 1.6% to 9.75 per dollar in a move that bankers attributed to Erdogan's comments. Kemal Kilicdaroglu, leader of the main opposition CHP, said Erdogan was "rapidly dragging the country to a precipice". "Return at once to our real agenda and the fundamental problem of this country - the economic crisis." Erdogan said the envoys had failed to respect Turkey's judiciary and had no right to demand Kavala's release.

Some of the suspects had travelled to the Polish border from other parts of Germany. On Saturday, dozens of people held a vigil in Guben to show their opposition to the planned far-right patrols. Seehofer said there had already been 6,162 unauthorised entries into Germany from Belarus and Poland this year.

* IMF: Sub-Saharan Africa region sees slowest recovery globally* Outlook hinges on vaccines, COVID trajectory and global factors* Danger of ‘permanent fault lines’ between region and world* Rising commodity prices provide relief to some countriesLONDON, Oct 21 (Reuters) - A lack of access to vaccines is dampening economic recovery in sub-Saharan Africa and the region will lag behind developed nations for years, the International Monetary Fund said on Thursday. Sub-Saharan Africa’s 2021 projected growth rates mean the region already suffered the “slowest recovery in the world”. South Africa - the continent’s most industrialised nation - is expected to expand by 5.0% this year before growth slows down to 2.2% in 2022. Food inflation had steadily increased since 2019 and stood at 10.9% in August across 25 countries where monthly data was available. “Without external financial and technical assistance, the divergent recovery paths of sub-Saharan Africa and the rest of the world may harden into permanent fault lines, jeopardizing decades of hard-won progress.” (Reporting by Karin Strohecker; Editing by Giles Elgood)

Flowers and tributes to the victims of the attack on Manchester Arena fill St Ann's Square in Manchester, Britain, May 29, 2017. Salman Abedi blew himself up at the end of an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena venue, as parents arrived to collect their children. Ismail Abedi, the bomber's older brother, had been summoned to give evidence at the public inquiry, which has been running for more than a year to examine issues raised by the bombing. The inquiry was due to hear evidence later on Thursday from a friend of Salman Abedi, Ahmed Taghdi. Another brother of Salman Abedi, Hashem Abedi, was found guilty of murder and jailed for at least 55 years in August 2020 for helping Salman plan the attack.

MOSCOW, Oct 21 (Reuters) - The death toll from a mass poisoning linked to illegal alcohol in central Russia has risen to 24, the RIA news agency reported on Thursday, in the second such incident this month. Russia's Investigative Committee said on Saturday that 18 people who drank liquor containing methanol, a poisonous alcohol usually used for industrial purposes, had died from alcohol poisoning in the city of Yekaterinburg, about 1,450 km (900 miles) east of Moscow.

BERLIN, Oct 20 (Reuters) - Germany is not considering closing its border with Poland to stem the flow of migrants trying to cross into the European Union from Belarus, Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said on Wednesday. "No one intends to close the border," Seehofer told journalists at a conference on the migration situation in Germany. Seehofer said Belarus, which has expanded the list of the nationalities that can enter it without a visa, is using migrants as a political threat. He called on Russia to put pressure on Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko to stop illegal migration to the European Union. Many EU states accuse Minsk of sending illegal migrants across the border into the EU to put pressure on the bloc, which imposed sanctions on Belarus after Lukashenko's disputed re-election in August 2020.
