Tsipras to form anti-bailout Greek... By Renee Maltezou and Costas Pitas ATHENS (Reuters) - Greek leftwing leader Alexis Tsipras struck a deal with a right-wing party to form a government to confront international lenders and reverse years of painful austerity following a crushing election victory by his Syriza party. The success of the anti-bailout party reignites fears of a new financial troubles in the country that set off the regional crisis in 2009. Fresh from trouncing conservative Prime Minister Antonis Samaras on a campaign of "Hope is coming!", the 40-year-old Tsipras quickly sealed a deal on a coalition with the head of the small Independent Greeks party which, like Syriza, opposes Greece's bailout deal. The Independent Greeks give a vote of confidence in Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras. Posted on 26 January 2015 | 5:00 am

KIEV (Reuters) - Seven Ukrainian servicemen have been killed and 24 wounded in fighting in separatist eastern territories in the past 24 hours, Kiev military spokesman Vladislav Seleznyov said on Monday. Fighting in eastern Ukraine is at its worst level since a ceasefire was agreed last September.

Assad seeks agreement over U.S.... President Bashar al-Assad has said U.S.-led air strikes against Islamic State militants in Syria should be subject to an agreement with Damascus and Syrian troops should be involved on the ground. Assad was speaking in an interview with the U.S.-based Foreign Affairs Magazine published on Monday. "With any country that is serious about fighting terrorism, we are ready to make cooperation, if they're serious," Assad said, when asked if he would be willing to take steps to make cooperation easier with Washington. Washington supports opposition forces fighting for the past four years to topple Assad, but its position has become complicated since Islamic State and other hardline groups emerged as the most powerful rebel factions.

Rain on India's parade, but Obama... By Sanjeev Miglani NEW DELHI (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama watched a dazzling parade of India's military might and cultural diversity on Monday, the second day of a visit trumpeted as a chance to establish a robust strategic partnership between the world's two largest democracies. It rained on the parade through the heart of New Delhi, but excitement nevertheless ran high over Obama's landmark visit, which began on Sunday with a clutch of deals and 'bromance' bonding with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Most significant was an agreement on two issues that, despite a groundbreaking 2006 pact, had stopped U.S. companies from setting up nuclear reactors in India and had become one of the major irritants in bilateral relations. The bonhomie was a remarkable spectacle, given that a year ago Modi was persona non grata in Washington and was banned from visiting the United States for nearly a decade after deadly Hindu-Muslim riots in a state he governed.

No retaliation following ban on... By Amy Sawitta Lefevre BANGKOK (Reuters) - Former Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's Puea Thai Party vowed on Monday it would not retaliate a five-year political ban imposed on the ousted leader, and a party heavyweight said they could survive without the powerful family. Following a similar path to her billionaire brother, Yingluck was last week banned from political office for five years and indicted on criminal charges over her involvement in a state rice buying scheme that cost Thailand billions of dollars. Yingluck's supporters say the charges against her are an attempt to limit the political influence of her brother, ousted former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, and weaken his Puea Thai Party. Anusorn Iamsa-ard, spokesman for the Puea Thai Party, said the decision to ban Yingluck from politics would not be a trigger for unrest. Posted on 26 January 2015 | 5:07 am
