Obama visits Hiroshima to ponder 'terrible force unleashed'
By Minami Funakoshi HIROSHIMA, Japan (Reuters) - Barack Obama became the first incumbent U.S. president to visit Hiroshima on Friday, laying a wreath at the site of the world's first atomic bombing in a gesture Tokyo and Washington hope will showcase their alliance and invigorate efforts to end nuclear arms. The two governments hope Obama's tour of Hiroshima, where an atomic bomb killed thousands instantly on Aug. 6, 1945, and some 140,000 by the year's end, underscores a new level of reconciliation and tighter ties between the former enemies. "We come to ponder the terrible force unleashed in a not-so-distant past," Obama said after laying a wreathe at a peace memorial.
G7 vows growth efforts as Japan's Abe warns of global crisis
By Tetsushi Kajimoto ISE-SHIMA, Japan (Reuters) - The Group of Seven industrial powers pledged on Friday to seek strong global growth, while papering over differences on currencies and stimulus policies and expressing concern over North Korea, Russia and maritime disputes involving China. G7 leaders wrapped up a summit in central Japan vowing to use "all policy tools" to boost demand and ease supply constraints.

Islamic State advances against Syrian rebels near Turkish border: monitor
BEIRUT (Reuters) - Islamic State fighters captured territory from Syrian rebels in an area near the Turkish border on Friday and were close to cutting off an insurgent-held town, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported. The jihadists seized a number of villages around the town of Marea, north of Aleppo, and had almost fully encircled it, the British-based monitoring group said. The advance also brought them closer to Azaz, a town 6 km (4 miles) from Turkey. ...
French vessel containing black box probes arrives to EgyptAir search zone
A French vessel carrying specialist probes designed to detect black box pinger signals has arrived to the search area where an EgyptAir jet is believed to have crashed last week, sources on the investigation committee said on Friday. ALSEAMAR, a subsidiary of French industrial group Alcen, is providing equipment that includes three of its DETECTOR-6000 systems, designed to pick up black-box pinger signals over long distances up to 5 km (3 miles), according to the company's website. The French company will conduct a deepwater search in "four or five" areas within the 5 kilometer search zone believed to contain the two black boxes, with the possibility of expanding the search zone should no signal be detected, the source said.
China faces headaches from warming Vietnam-U.S. ties
By Greg Torode and Megha Rajagopalan HONG KONG/BEIJING (Reuters) - At a stroke, the U.S. and Vietnam have complicated the strategic outlook for China over the disputed South China Sea. As U.S. President Barack Obama marked one of his last trips to Asia by the historic lifting of Washington's arms embargo on Vietnam, he repeatedly insisted it was not directed at Beijing. Operationally, China faces the short-term prospect of Vietnam obtaining U.S.-sourced radars and sensors, surveillance planes and drones to better monitor and target Chinese forces, the analysts say.

Dollar rises as world stock markets hold steady
By Sudip Kar-Gupta LONDON (Reuters) - The U.S dollar rose on Friday while world stock markets were steady, as investors braced for the likelihood of a hike in U.S. interest rates in coming months. "Markets are doing remarkably well given that a U.S. interest rate rise might happen as early as next month," said Lex Van Dam, hedge fund manager at Hampstead Capital. The dollar index rose 0.1 percent and was on track for its best monthly performance since last November, after a string of U.S Federal Reserve officials raised expectations for a hike in interest rates as early as June, given signs of strength in the world's biggest economy.

U.S. business spending mired in weakness, but economy picking up
U.S. business spending intentions weakened in April for a third straight month amid soft demand for machinery, but a surge in contracts to purchase previously owned homes to a 10-year high supported views economic growth was gaining speed. The growth picture was further boosted by another report on Thursday showing the number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits fell more than expected last week, pushing them back to near cycle lows. The Commerce Department said orders for non-defense capital goods excluding aircraft, a closely watched proxy for business spending plans, fell 0.8 percent after slipping 0.1 percent the prior month.
U.S. rates may rise 'fairly soon,' Brexit a concern: Fed's Powell
Federal Reserve Governor Jerome Powell, a voting member of the U.S. central bank's rate-setting committee, said in a speech in Washington that he felt the economy was on a "solid footing" and within reach of the Fed's inflation and employment goals. The Fed will hold another policy meeting on July 26-27. Powell, however, struck an overall positive tone about the U.S. economy in an appearance at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, becoming the latest Fed policymaker in recent days to say it may be time to notch rates higher.
Short sellers circle Alibaba amid SEC probe
By Jennifer Ablan NEW YORK (Reuters) - Alibaba Group Holding Ltd , which disclosed it is under investigation for its accounting practices, has emerged as one of the short-selling community's favorite targets in the relatively short time it has been in the public market. Noted short-sellers Jim Chanos of Kynikos Associates and John Hempton of Bronte Capital have been raising red flags since last year about the Chinese e-commerce giant's accounting practices. Hempton told Reuters in an email on Thursday that Alibaba, which went public in September 2014, is "a real company" but "with questionable accounts." He added: "The ability to value it from the accounts is, thus, tricky." Hempton said he believes shares will eventually "go down a lot - and get a takeover bid".
