Brazil's Rousseff ousted in end to impeachment process

Brazil's former President Dilma Rousseff, who was removed by the Brazilian Senate from office earlier, speaks at the Alvorada Palace in BrasiliaBy Maria Carolina Marcello and Anthony Boadle BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil's Senate removed President Dilma Rousseff from office on Wednesday for breaking budgetary laws, ending an impeachment process that has polarized the scandal-plagued country and paralyzed its politics for nine months. Senators voted 61-20 to convict Rousseff for illegally using money from state banks to boost public spending, putting an end to 13 years of leftist Workers Party rule in Latin America's largest economy. Conservative Michel Temer, the former vice president who has run Brazil since Rousseff's suspension in May, was to be sworn in by the Senate at 4 p.m. local (1900 GMT) on Wednesday to serve out the remainder of the presidential term through 2018.

(Reuters) - The first regularly scheduled commercial flight between the United States and Cuba in more than half a century was set to depart on Wednesday, opening another chapter in the Obama administration's efforts to open trade and travel with the former Cold War foe. The first of several U.S. carriers to begin serving Cuba in the coming months, JetBlue Airways Corp was due to fly from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to Santa Clara, a central city known for its monument to revolutionary leader Ernesto "Che" Guevara.

Key Islamic State leader killed in apparent U.S. strike in Syria

IS spokesman and head of external operations Abu Muhammad al-Adnani is pictured in this undated handout photoBy Angus McDowall and Phil Stewart BEIRUT/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Islamic State said on Tuesday one of its most prominent and longest-serving leaders was killed in what appeared to be an American air strike in Syria, depriving the militant group of the man in charge of directing attacks overseas. A U.S. defense official told Reuters the United States targeted Abu Muhammad al-Adnani in a Tuesday strike on a vehicle traveling in the Syrian town of al-Bab. Adnani was one of the last living senior members, along with self-appointed caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who founded the group and stunned the Middle East by seizing huge tracts of Iraq and Syria in 2014.




Turkey wants to 'cleanse' strip of territory on Syrian border

A member of Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) patrols in the border town of JarablusBy David Dolan JARABLUS, Syria (Reuters) - Turkey wants to clear Islamic State from a 90-km (56-mile) stretch of territory on the Syrian side of its border, an official said on Wednesday, a week after it launched an incursion that has strained ties with the United States. Operation "Euphrates Shield", in which Turkish troops and tanks entered Syria in support of rebels for the first time, began on Aug. 24 with the swift capture of Jarablus, a town a few km (miles) inside Syria that was held by the militant group. The bulk of Turkish-backed forces have since moved further south into territory held by militias loyal to the Kurdish-aligned Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a coalition supported by Washington in its bid to defeat the jihadists.

Irish cabinet delays decision on Apple tax appeal

File photo of Ireland's national flag flying above a statue in DublinBy Padraic Halpin and Conor Humphries DUBLIN (Reuters) - Ireland's cabinet could not agree on Wednesday whether to fight a European Commission ruling against Dublin's tax dealings with Apple , raising questions over any appeal and the government's stability. Finance Minister Michael Noonan has insisted Dublin would appeal any adverse ruling ever since the EU investigation began in 2014. Dublin has just over two months at the latest to make an appeal against the Commission's ruling that the U.S. tech giant should hand over to Ireland unpaid taxes of up to 13 billion euros ($14.5 billion) ruled to be illegal state aid.




U.S. private payrolls rise solidly; pending home sales jump

A U.S. military veteran applicant holds his resume at a hiring fair for veteran job seekers and military spouses at the Verizon Center in WashingtonU.S. private employers maintained a steady pace of hiring in August and contracts to buy previously owned homes surged in July, suggesting the economy was regaining sufficient momentum for the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates this year. Other data on Wednesday showed a sharp moderation in factory activity in the Midwest this month amid shrinking order books, indicating the manufacturing sector continued to be hobbled by the residual effects of a strong dollar and oil price slump. "This should give the Fed confidence that the economy is strong enough to generate new employment and importantly, that the economy has enough forward momentum to withstand an interest rate hike," said Chris Rupkey, chief economist at MUFG Union Bank in New York.
