REUTERS/Agustin MarcarianBUENOS AIRES, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Argentina on Tuesday raised the country's minimum wage to 31,104 Argentine pesos ($316.51) a month starting in September, as persistent inflation eats away at purchasing power.

Overall in 2021, the minimum wage will have risen 55.3%, Economy Minister Martin Guzman said on Twitter. The increase in the minimum wage is in line with inflation.

REUTERS/Carlos Garcia RawlinsWASHINGTON, Sept 21 (Reuters) - The International Monetary Fund on Tuesday said it is closely following developments surrounding China Evergrande Group (3333.HK), but believes Beijing has the tools to prevent the situation from turning into a systemic crisis. IMF chief economist Gita Gopinath told Reuters the real estate sector was a big part of China's economy, and China Evergrande's potential default could have implications for China's economic activity and financial stability. "We are following the developments in China very closely," Gopinath said, underscoring the need for regulatory reforms to address the heavily leveraged property sector. "We still believe that China has the tools and the policy space to prevent this turning into a systemic crisis."

Witnesses last saw Petito on Aug. 24 as she left a Salt Lake City hotel. An FBI spokesman has said the body was "consistent" with the 5'5, 110-pound Petito. The autopsy scheduled for Tuesday was expected to identify the remains and determine a cause of death. Petito sobs in the video as she describes a quarrel with Laundrie that she says became physical at times. The officers did not detain the couple but insisted they spend that night separately, Petito in the van and Laundrie at a hotel.

The two members of the Islamic Jihad militant group were apprehended before dawn from a house in the Palestinian city of Jenin in the occupied West Bank, Israeli Police Commissioner Yaakov Shabtai said. Palestinians see members of armed groups jailed by Israel as heroes in the struggle for statehood in the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem, territory Israel captured in the 1967 Middle East war. Palestinians in Jenin clashed with Israeli troops as they raided the city early on Sunday, residents said. Palestinians hurled rocks and explosives towards Israeli troops and shot live fire as the troops exited the city, the military added. There was no immediate comment from the Palestinian Authority, which exercises limited self-rule in the West Bank and coordinates with Israel on security in the territory.

That works for larger businesses that can negotiate with payment processors, but Adobe wanted a simpler service for smaller merchants, Peter Sheldon, senior director of commerce strategy at Adobe, told Reuters in an interview. Payments are a big part of the e-commerce business. In 2020, more than two-thirds of Shopify's $2.93 billion in revenue came from its merchant services segment that includes payments. For Adobe, the payments move follows a partnership with FedEx Corp (FDX.N) earlier this year that helps Adobe merchants manage shipping and logistics services. Sheldon told Reuters that the processing deal with PayPal is not exclusive, and as Adobe expands further internationally after 2022, it may work with other processors.

REUTERS/Toby Melville/PoolSept 10 (Reuters) - British finance minister Rishi Sunak has directed Treasury officials to explore with the insurance industry new financial products that would help people cover their share of costs for social care, a Treasury source said on Friday. Social care refers to long-term health care outside hospitals. Sunak has asked officials to work with insurers to consider "new products" that can help with social care costs, the treasury source said. "We’re hopeful that in time the cap on costs will provide the clarity insurers need to create new products,” the source said. Johnson's move to raise taxes broke a promise made in that manifesto to not raise such levies to fund social care.
