Smoke billows from the scene of an air strike, in Mekelle, the capital of Tigray region, Ethiopia October 20, 2021. REUTERS/StringerADDIS ABABA, Oct 21 (Reuters) - Ethiopia carried out an air strike on the city of Mekelle for the third day this week, a government spokesperson said, in a campaign to weaken rebellious Tigrayan forces they have been fighting for nearly a year. Spokesperson Legesse Tulu told Reuters the strike succeeded in hitting a military training centre being used by the Tigrayan forces.

He is participating in the hunger strike alongside taxi drivers. “I will be on hunger strike until the end of this fight,” he said.

REUTERS/StringerSINGAPORE, Oct 20 (Reuters) - Myanmar's economic turmoil is due to political instability and mismanagement following a February coup, a U.S. official said on Wednesday after a junta minister blamed the crisis partly on foreign backers of its opponents. The military government's investment minister attributed Myanmar's economic troubles to sabotage by opponents of the junta and their overseas backers in an exclusive interview with Reuters on Tuesday. "We have to attribute the dire economic situation to the lack of political stability and all the uncertainty." A spokesman for Myanmar's military government blamed "foreign intervention" for the decision.

The 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) decided last week to invite a non-political representative from Myanmar to its Oct. 26-28 summits, snubbing military chief Min Aung Hlaing. Blocking Min Aung Hlaing was a big step for ASEAN, whose members have longed pursued a policy of staying out of each other's affairs and have discouraged sanctions and other measures to isolate Myanmar. Kagan said addressing the issues faced in Myanmar, also known as Burma, would require cooperation between ASEAN countries, as well as partners outside. "It is clear that there is growing frustration in the region with the situation with the situation in Myanmar, also growing concern. The reality is that the quality of governance in Myanmar has dropped precipitously, that the people of Myanmar are facing extraordinary challenges."

KOCHI, India, Oct 18 (Reuters) - At least 22 people were killed after heavy rains lashed the south Indian state of Kerala over the weekend, officials said. Rainfall across the state led to flash floods and landslides in several areas, with the Indian army and navy called out to rescue residents. Some 13 of those were killed after a landslide in Kuttikkal village, officials and eyewitnesses said. India, with 1.3 billion people, relies on rainfall to support its population, many of whom live rely on farming. But excessive rainfall can cause floods, landslides and water-borne diseases.

Apart from the 1.5 billion yuan ($233.21 million) pledged by Chinese President Xi Jinping as part of a new "Kunming Biodiversity Fund", the European Union also said it would double funding for biodiversity. France and Britain also promised to direct more of their climate budgets to protecting biodiversity, and Japan announced a $17 million extension to its own biodiversity fund. Huang Runqiu, China's environment minister and the president of COP15, said global environmental governance was facing "unprecedented challenges" as the rate of global species extinction accelerates. That is what will bend the curve on biodiversity loss."

TAIYUAN, China (Reuters) - Aluminium processors in China face slimmer profits this year due to surging metal prices, Shandong Nanshan Aluminium Co Ltd’s chairman said on Thursday. FILE PHOTO: An employee works at the production line of aluminium rolls at a factory in Zouping, Shandong province, China November 23, 2019. “Aluminium prices have jumped significantly ... (and) increasing freight charges, price spreads and exchange rates are all having a big impact on processors,” Lu Zhengfeng, chairman of the Shandong-based firm told a conference at Antaike’s China International Aluminium Week. The most-traded November aluminium contract on the Shanghai Futures Exchange rose to around its highest since May 2006, while three-month aluminium on the London Metal Exchange was at its strongest since July 2008. “The upstream high aluminium prices have already transmitted to fabricators, and fabricators have to transfer the costs to the downstream sector,” Lu said, adding it was uncertain whether aluminium end-users would accept that.

Getachew Reda of the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF) told Reuters by phone that the Ethiopian military and allies from the Amhara region were fighting the Tigrayan forces on several fronts, in both the Amhara and Afar regions which neighbour Tigray.

Tigrayan forces were initially beaten back, but recaptured most of the region in July and pushed into the neighbouring Amhara and Afar regions, displacing hundreds of thousands more people. Another humanitarian worker citing witnesses said Eritrean forces were fighting Tigrayans in Berhale, a town in the Afar region.
