  • Oil slips towards $60, Saudi Arabia sees steady market

    Brent crude oil slipped towards $60 a barrel on Wednesday as a stronger dollar pressured commodity prices, while Saudi Arabia's oil minister said he expected the market to balance itself and for prices to recover. Oil Minister Ali al-Naimi said he expected supply and demand would soon match and oil prices, which hit a near six-year low of $45 in January, would stabilise, adding to signs OPEC's largest exporter is confident consumption is growing. Naimi said it was not Saudi Arabia's responsibility to "subsidise" higher cost oil producers. The speech followed news that Saudi Arabia had raised its official selling prices (OSPs) for oil deliveries to Asia and the United States on Tuesday.

  • Federal agents target industry that helps Chinese women have American-born babies

    Federal agents searched three dozen homes Tuesday in California during a crackdown on so-called maternity tourism operators who arrange for pregnant Chinese women to give birth in the U.S., where their babies automatically become American citizens. The investigation of three alleged birth tourism rings may be the biggest yet by federal homeland security agents who say that, while pregnant women may travel to the United States and deliver their babies here, they cannot lie about the purpose of their trip when applying for a visa. Authorities believe people from other countries are carrying out similar schemes but recent cases in California have catered to wealthy visitors from China, most likely due to the country's large population, recent economic boom and ties to the region. It is unclear how many women travel to the United States for maternity tourism.

  • Bible story: Israeli PM packs potent religious symbolism in US speech

    The powerful religious symbolism packed into a speech by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to U.S. Congress would have been self-evident even to someone lacking training in Jewish theology. What followed was a modern version — in which Netanyahu was cast in the role of protector, Persians were still the enemy and the unwitting king in need of a wake-up call was Barack Obama, the U.S. president believed to be on the verge of a historic nuclear deal with Iran. He looked up to the gallery and applauded Holocaust survivor and Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel. —He condemned details he's heard about a possible nuclear deal with Iran.
