European policymakers struggle for united front to save Greece | Business European policymakers struggle for united front to save Greece | Business Leaders of the 17 eurozone countries, plus European central bankers and commissioners, will hold an emergency summit in Brussels on Thursday in the latest, probably the biggest, effort to settle Europe's sovereign debt crisis. The stakes are huge, with the leaders under enormous pressure from the markets, the Americans and the vulnerable parties in the eurozone to agree a new rescue package for Greece and more broadly to ringfence the euro. After 15 months of ad hoc measures, muddling through, and playing for time, Europe's leaders may be facing a date with destiny. But with deep divisions over how to resolve the long running crisis, it is not clear that they can summon the political will to supply persuasive answers to the big questions they are being asked. Frantic efforts were under way on Monday to try to reach a deal that will be blessed by the leaders on Thursday.
Afghanistan government under threat after second assassination in a week | World news The assassination of a close ally and mentor of Hamid Karzai a week after the killing of the president's powerful half-brother has raised new questions over whether Afghanistan's precarious power structure could collapse even before the departure of western combat troops in 2014. Jan Muhammad Khan was killed when two gunmen stormed his walled compound in Kabul on Sunday night, holding off Afghan security forces until Monday morning. The attackers also gunned down an MP from Khan's home province, Uruzgan, before being killed themselves. The assassinations of the two powerful warlords, who once seemed unassailable, have caused widespread shock. Ahmed Shah Behsad, an MP from Herat, said: "These killings show the weakness of failure of Karzai's politics. Afghanistan government under threat after second assassination in a week | World news
Ed Miliband has demanded the breakup of Rupert Murdoch's UK media empire in a dramatic intervention in the row over phone hacking. In an exclusive interview with the Observer, the Labour leader calls for cross-party agreement on new media ownership laws that would cut Murdoch's current market share, arguing that he has "too much power over British public life". Miliband says that the abandonment by News International of its bid for BSkyB, the resignation of its chief executive, Rebekah Brooks, and the closure of the News of the World are insufficient to restore trust and reassure the public.

US debt crisis: Obama warns of 'tax rise for all' if deal cannot be done | Business US President Barack Obama during a press conference on the debt ceiling in which he said Republican proposals for a budget deal without tax increases were not credible. Photograph: Mandel Ngan/AFP/Getty Images Barack Obama has warned that the US is "running out of time" to raise the limit on US government borrowing and that failure to do so will lead in effect to a tax increase for all Americans, because a downgrade of the country's credit rating would cause an interest rate rise. The president's warning was reinforced by a threat from the ratings agency Standard & Poor's to strip the US of its AAA standing if no long-term political deal is reached to tackle government spending and debt.

The fight to rescue the Arab spring | World news The historic revolutions that have rippled through the Arab world this year were in danger of eclipse on Friday night as protesters returned to the streets to profess their disgust at how the movement is being stymied by regimes old and new. Six months after the Arab spring claimed its first dictator, the main squares of Cairo and Tunis were again alive with protest, teargas and fury at the resistance to change shown by interim authorities. In Syria activists said at least 19 people had been killed in the latest crackdown against protests that have convulsed the country for more than four months. At least seven people were killed in Yemen amid a political limbo that appears no closer to resolution. And in Jordan a heavy security presence policed pro- and anti-reform demonstrations which turned violent. The fight to rescue the Arab spring | World news

Senior British police officials are talking to the FBI about an international database to hunt for major criminals and terrorists.
