CHITTAGONG, Bangladesh (Reuters) - Bangladesh naval vessels carried some 1,600 Rohingya refugees towards a remote island in the Bay of Bengal on Friday despite complaints by refugees and humanitarian groups that some were being coerced. But refugees and humanitarian workers say some of the Rohingya had been coerced into going to Bhashan Char a flood-prone island that emerged from the sea 20 years ago. A naval official said the Rohingya were aboard seven boats, with two more carrying supplies, that set out from the southern port of Chittagong. Bangladesh has built more than a thousand cinderblock housing units on Bhasan for the Rohingya refugees. More than 300 refugees were brought to the island earlier this year after several months at sea in an attempt to flee Bangladesh.

DHAKA (Reuters) - Bangladesh has begun preparations to move thousands of Rohingya refugees to a remote island off its coast, officials said on Wednesday, despite opposition from many refugees and human rights groups who have termed it an “island detention center”.

More than 730,000 Rohingya fled Myanmar in 2017 following a military-led crackdown that the U.N has said was executed with genocidal intent.

New York (CNN Business) President Donald Trump repeatedly warned Americans that if they failed to reelect him, the stock market would implode . You are so lucky to have me as your President," Trump wrote on September 2 . "The stock market has this great ability to look through immediate headwinds to a future that appears brighter." Yet the V-shaped recovery on Wall Street is another example of how the pandemic is worsening inequality. And the surging stock market is likely exacerbating the divide between rich and poor because affluent families have far more skin in the game.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Group of 20 major economies should work to provide trillions of dollars in trade financing for developing countries to ensure the recovery of the global economy from the COVID-19 pandemic, a top official with the World Trade Organization said on Saturday. FILE PHOTO: World Trade Organization (WTO) Deputy Director-General Alan Wolff speaks at a news conference following the "1+6" Roundtable meeting at the Diaoyutai state guesthouse in Beijing, China November 21, 2019. REUTERS/Florence LoWTO Deputy Director General Alan Wolff told G20 leaders it was critical to utilize trade to help underwrite the economy, facilitate trade in essential medical supplies, and reform the institutional framework for world trade. The lack of access to trade financing hits least developed countries hardest that already suffer from the high cost of financial transactions. The Geneva-based world trade body is in turmoil as the administration of outgoing U.S. President Donald Trump has blocked both selection of a new director general and the functioning of a dispute settlement body.

Now a seven-time Formula One world champion, the Englishman equaled Michael Schumacher's record with a stunning victory at a wet and tumultuous Turkish Grand Prix on Sunday. He is F1's first and only Black world champion in its 70-year history and a racing great from a humble background. PA media's F1 correspondent Phil Duncan believes the sport is fortunate to have had even one champion of the caliber of Hamilton. The same goes for Hamilton's fellow seven-time world champion SchumacherSchumacher's bricklayer father Rolf reportedly built his son's first kart from scrap. Without Hamilton, Schumacher and Vettel, F1 loses the winners of a combined 18 world championship over the last 27 years.

(CNN) Lewis Hamilton has become accustomed to making history and, at a rain-soaked Turkish Grand Prix, the Englishman put his name in the record books once again as he equaled Michael Schumacher's record of seven world titles. Last month Hamilton, 35, surpassed Schumacher's all-time record of 91 Grand Prix wins to become the sport's most successful racer and had long since broken the German's career pole-positions record. Should he remain in the sport, Hamilton will be widely expected to add to his tally of world titles. No driver has been as successful on the track as Hamilton, and no F1 world champion has used his stature like Hamilton, the sport's first and only Black world champion in its 70-year history. Ahead of the Turkish Grand Prix, Hamilton said campaigning for equal rights had made him "much prouder" than the prospect of a seventh world title.

Two Federal Reserve economists recently examined the evidence and concluded the gap is getting even wider. "The before-tax profits share of U.S. corporations has shown a dramatic increase in the last few decades," the authors wrote. While the wealth gap has been growing for decades, Johnson lays part of the problem at the feet of the Federal Reserve, who he says has been propping up stock prices for years. "Twenty percent of U.S. companies are zombie companies — they only survive because the Federal Reserve is propping them up. Broader wealth statistics recently published by the Federal Reserve are not much more encouraging.
