REUTERS/Mohammad Ponir Hossain/File PhotoDHAKA, Oct 22 (Reuters) - At least six people were killed in an attack at a Rohingya camp in Bangladesh's Cox Bazar on Friday, a police official said - the latest incident of violence in the world's largest refugee settlement. "A drive is underway to arrest those responsible for the incident," Khan told Reuters, adding one Rohingya man with weapons and ammunition had been taken into custody. More than a million Rohingya live in a cluster of refugee camps in southern Bangladesh, with most having fled neighbouring Myanmar during a military crackdown in 2007. Late last month, gunmen shot and killed a prominent Rohingya Muslim leader in the camps.

More than 1 million people including security personnel, health care staff and tourism industry workers will be given third shots of the Pfizer vaccine beginning Nov. 1, the president's office said in a statement. The country depends on international tourism, and partially rolled back COVID-19 restrictions late last month, allowing fully vaccinated travellers with a negative test to enter without quarantine. An estimated 400,000 people are employed in the tourism industry.

REUTERS/Eduardo Munoz/Pool/File PhotoNEW DELHI, Oct 21 (Reuters) - Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will attend the U.N. climate summit in Glasgow, the country's environment minister said on Thursday, in a boost for global efforts for steeper emission cuts to fight global warming. India is the world's third-biggest emitter of greenhouse gases after China and the United States, and Modi's participation at the COP26, beginning later this month, was considered critical amid uncertainty over whether Chinese President Xi Jinping would attend. "PM is going to Glasgow," Environment Minister Bhupender Yadav told Reuters in an interview.

REUTERS/Amit DaveNEW DELHI, Oct 21 (Reuters) - For Delhi resident Suman Milind, rising prices in India are casting a long shadow this year over the upcoming Diwali festival of lights. For months India's consumer-price-based inflation stayed above the central-bank's comfort level of 6% driven by a rise in food prices. In September the consumer price index eased to 4.35%, helped by a softening of food prices which make up nearly half of the index. He said a rise in prices of metals like steel and copper had pushed up prices of utensils, cookers, festival lighting and gift items by 15%-20% in the last four-five months. Because of rising prices and other market uncertainties, Delhi-based company auditor Lalit Vats said his family had downgraded to non-branded products and visited the wholesale markets to hunt for bargains.

REUTERS/Dado Ruvic/Illustration//File PhotoNEW DELHI, Oct 20 (Reuters) - Future Retail must take part in arbitration over a commercial dispute with Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O), a Singapore arbitration panel ruled on Wednesday, rejecting the Indian retailer's bid to avoid the process. Amazon is trying to block Future's $3.4 billion sale of its retail assets to Indian market leader Reliance Industries, accusing it of breaking contracts. In an order on Wednesday, which is not public but has been reviewed by Reuters, the panel disagreed with Future. The three agreements were of "composite nature", "wide and comprehensive enough" and the tribunal "has jurisdiction over FRL (Future Retail) in this Arbitration," said the 69-page order. Amazon brought proceedings against Future before a Singapore arbitration panel, and the dispute is also being fought at various Indian legal forums.

After the Singapore arbitrator put the deal on hold last year while it heard the matter at length, Future Retail had argued it should be excluded from the proceedings as Amazon had initiated the case under a contract it signed with another Future group company. The panel in an order on Wednesday, which is not public, disagreed with Future Group. It said three agreements at the heart of the Future Group-Amazon dispute must be read together, and not separately, as Future had argued.

Bangladeshi activists join in a torch procession demanding justice for the violence against Hindu communities during Durga Puja festival in Dhaka, Bangladesh, October 18, 2021. The violence began on Friday when hundreds of Muslims protested in the southeastern Noakhali district accusing Hindus of a blasphemous incident involving the Koran. Authorities have filed 71 cases in connection with the violence during the Hindu festival of Durga Puja, a Bangladesh police spokesman said. The unrest is among the worst in Bangladesh since Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's Awami League party came to power in 2009. "Recent attacks on Hindus of Bangladesh, fuelled by hate speech on social media, are against the values of the Constitution and need to stop," tweeted Mia Seppo, the United Nations' resident coordinator in Bangladesh.

Mumbai, Oct 16 (Reuters) - Police investigating the killing of a Sikh man at the site of an ongoing farmers' protest in New Delhi said on Saturday they had arrested a suspect from a Sikh warrior sect, after the mutilated body was found strung up on a police barricade. The 35-year-old victim was beaten to death on Friday by a group of men who had accused him of desecrating Sikh holy texts, according to media reports. Police superintendent Jashandeep Singh Randhawa said a member of a Sikh warrior sect called the Nihangs had been taken into custody after the attack close to Singhu village, on the northwest border of the capital. The Samyukt Kisan Morcha, an umbrella group for farmers organisations, issued a statement condemning the killing. Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party said Friday's murder showed that farm leaders were losing control of their campaign.

China also suffered an unspecified number of casualties, in the first combat losses for both countries on the border in 45 years. The two countries, which fought a border war in 1962, have over-lapping claims to large areas of territory along the frontier.

A weaver works on a power loom in Varanasi in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, India, September 22, 2021. Sales of the heavily brocaded silk sarees made in the ancient city on the river Ganges are currently down 70% from the pre-pandemic period, locals say. Brocaded with gold, silver and copper, the heavy Banarasi silk sarees made in Varanasi, which is also called Benaras, are sold across India and overseas for women to wear at weddings and special occasions. Weavers say they are struggling with shrinking demand as the expensive sarees they make are substituted with cheaper varieties, as well as the high prices of raw silk and brocade. He said earnings from about 6.5 million annual tourist inflows, estimated at 50 billion rupees in 2019/20 before the pandemic, could revive to 10-15 billion rupees this fiscal year if there was no surge in virus cases.

AstraZeneca is one of the key providers to Britain's vaccination program, along with U.S. peers Moderna (MRNA.O) and Pfizer (PFE.N).

NEW DELHI, Sept 24 (Reuters) - Three people were killed in a suspected gangland shooting inside a Delhi courtroom on Friday, police said, causing panic in the premises. The incident occurred when a suspected gang leader appeared in court and two men who were sitting inside dressed as lawyers fired shots at him, police said.

Mobile phone images captured by people in the court premises in Rohini, in western Delhi, showed people running for cover while shots rang out. Arun Kumar, an official at the Rohini court, said lawyers should be given a special ID card to reduce the risk of impersonation.

A bird flies past the logo of Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) at one of its offices in New Delhi, India September 14, 2021. While the government is planning to allow foreign investors to participate in what is likely to be the country's biggest-ever IPO worth a potential $12.2 billion, it is leery of Chinese ownership, the sources said. The trust deficit has significantly widen(ed)," said one of the government officials, adding that Chinese investment in companies like LIC could pose risks. The sources declined to be identified as discussions on how Chinese investment might be blocked are ongoing and as no final decisions have been made. A third option being explored is barring Chinese investors from becoming cornerstone investors in the IPO, said one government official and the banker, although that would not prevent Chinese investors from buying shares in the secondary market.

REUTERS/Henry NichollsNEW DELHI, Sept 21 (Reuters) - India's foreign minister on Tuesday urged Britain to remove a rule requiring Indians visiting there to quarantine even if they are fully vaccinated. Britons vaccinated in the United Kingdom with the same Indian-made doses are not required to quarantine. The British High Commission (embassy) in New Delhi said the United Kingdom was working with India to resolve the issue. "It is offensive to ask fully vaccinated Indians to quarantine," he said. A smaller number have taken an indigenous vaccine developed by Bharat Biotech, which is not in use in Britain.

"(Both sides should) work together to maintain peace and tranquility in the border areas, and stop border incidents from recurring." As two major emerging economies, China and India should push bilateral ties back to a healthy and stable track, a statement from the Chinese foreign ministry cited Wang as saying. China and India went to war over their border in 1962 and have never resolved the dispute. "It is also essential that China does not view its relations with India through the lens of a third country," he said he told Wang.
