A threat by US President Barack Obama that more sanctions would befall Moscow if the agreement, reached Thursday with Ukraine and the EU, failed was "absolutely unacceptable," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Russian television.

Actress and presenter Kim Novak arrives in the press room during the 86th Academy Awards on March 2, 2014 in Hollywood, CaliforniaVeteran actress Kim Novak has lashed out at the "bullies" who mocked and criticized her appearance at the Academy Awards last month.

"However, I will no longer hold myself back from speaking out against bullies. Addressing what she called "the elephant in the room," she added in the posting: "Years ago, I walked away from Hollywood partially because I didn’t stand up to the bullies.

Obama-Abe summit to aid trade talks, not seal deal: U.S. official

Amari speaks to the media after meetings with Froman in TokyoBy Krista Hughes and Kaori Kaneko WASHINGTON/TOKYO (Reuters) – Next week's meeting between U.S. President Barack Obama and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is a good opportunity to give impetus to Pacific trade negotiations but will not seal a deal, a senior U.S. administration official said on Friday. Talks between the United States and Japan seen as vital to a broader regional trade pact had narrowed to a few critical areas and will resume again on Monday, officials of both countries said, as negotiators hustle to prepare for Thursday's summit. Breaking a U.S.-Japan deadlock over access to Japan's farm and auto markets is seen as key to finalising the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a 12-nation trade bloc that would stretch from Asia to Latin America. When the leaders meet, they are likely to review progress so far on the trade talks and give some impetus to negotiators to move on to the next stage, the senior official said.

US delays decision on Keystone pipeline project

Activists march during a protest of the Keystone XL pipeline on March 7, 2014 in WashingtonThe United States indefinitely extended the review process for a controversial Canada-to-US oil pipeline Friday, potentially delaying a final decision on the project until beyond mid-term elections in November. The US State Department said eight federal agencies — which had been given until the end of May to submit views on the matter — would now have a longer window to weigh in on the long-delayed Keystone XL pipeline. "This project will create tens of thousands of jobs on both sides of the border, will enhance the energy security of North America, has strong public support and the US State Department has, on multiple occasions, acknowledged it will be environmentally sound," the statement added. Analysts say President Barack Obama, who has the final say on the pipeline, is caught in a classic no-win dilemma — facing the prospect of losing votes in critical November 4 mid-term elections whatever he decides.

Dissident Irish republican shot dead in Belfast

A prominent dissident Irish republican was shot dead in Northern Ireland on Friday, the latest incident in some of the highest levels of violence since a 1998 peace deal in the British province. Northern Ireland has been largely peaceful since the “Good Friday” agreement largely ended more than three decades of sectarian violence but there are sporadic outbreaks of violence, particularly in the last 18 months. Tommy Crossan, a leading opponent of the peace deal, was shot on Friday afternoon in west Belfast and died at the scene. More than 3,600 people died in sectarian strife between mainly Catholic Irish nationalists, seeking union with Ireland, and predominantly Protestant unionists who want to remain part of the United Kingdom.
