  • Oil up 2 percent despite U.S. crude build; set for best third quarter since 2004

    Golocal247.com news

    By Julia Simon NEW YORK (Reuters) - Oil prices settled up 2 percent on Wednesday despite a rise in U.S. crude inventories, with the market heading for its largest third-quarter gain in 13 years after the Iraqi oil minister said OPEC and its partners were considering extending or deepening output cuts. Brent crude futures rose $1.06, or 1.9 percent, to $56.20 a barrel, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures gained 93 cents, or 1.9 percent, to $50.41. U.S. crude oil stockpiles jumped last week as imports and production increased, the U.S. Energy Information Administration said, as operations resumed from the impact of Hurricane Harvey which hit the Gulf Coast on Aug. 25.

  • Watch moment Russian helicopter 'accidentally fires rockets at bystanders'

    Golocal247.com news

    Dramatic video footage has emerged of a helicopter accidentally firing a rocket at bystanders watching Russia's military drills. At least two bystanders were injured and two cars burnt down in the incident that occurred during the Zapad 2017 military exercises, the 66.ru news website reported Tuesday, citing an unidentified source familiar with the situation.  According to the Yekaterinburg regional news website 66.ru that first broke the story and published a video of the incident, two military helicopters were chasing a target when one of them accidentally fired air-to-ground rockets at bystanders.  The video of the incident, published by 66.ru, depicts a helicopter firing a shot at a man walking near three cars. “[The helicopters] were 500 meters away from the target. They activated the weapon chain, but something malfunctioned, and rockets went down [earlier],” the source told 66.ru and added that two people – “most likely journalists” – were hospitalised with serious injuries. The incident was reported to have taken place at the Luzhski range right outside of St. Petersburg. It remains unclear when it happened, but the 66.ru report suggests that it wasn’t long before Russian President Vladimir Putin visited the range on Monday. Later on Tuesday the RBC news outlet reported that the incident happened on September 16, citing an anonymous source close to Russia’s Defence Ministry. The source claimed three people got injured in the incident, and none of them were civilians. RBC published another video of the incident, showing the helicopter firing rockets at a military truck parked near three apparent civilian cars.   The Defence Ministry refuted claims that the shot was fired at bystanders who were watching the Zapad exercise. The video posted by 66.ru depicts an incident that happened “at a different period of time,” during another army aviation exercise, the Ministry spokespeople told RBC.   They confirmed the fact that a helicopter accidentally fired a rocket at a parking lot, and said that an empty military truck was damaged as a result. Information about “many people heavily injured” is either “deliberate provocation,” or “someone’s personal silliness,” the Ministry officials said. Zapad 2017 is a large-scale joint military exercise of Russia and Belarus that raised concerns in neighboring European countries as a potential threat to regional security. 12,700 troops are officially said to be participating, together with some 140 tanks, up to 150 artillery and air defence units and more than 40 planes and helicopters.

  • U.S. cracks down on debt collection of private student loans

    (This September 18 story corrects amount to $21.6 million from $26.1 million in first, 10th paragraphs) By Lisa Lambert WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. consumer financial watchdog on Monday ordered National College Student Loan Trusts and its debt collector, Transworld Systems Inc, to pay at least $21.6 million for attempting to collect on possibly non-existent or out-of-date loans. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau alleged that the companies sued borrowers without being able to prove the debt was owed or pursued collection on loans that were too old to sue over, and relied on false and misleading legal documents. The CFPB said the trusts had filed at least 486 lawsuits on debt where the statute of limitations for collections had expired.
