One such village is Bisara, 50 km from the capital New Delhi, where a crowd of assailants broke into Mohammed Akhlaq's home last Monday night, beat him to death and dragged his body out into the street.

    Oil rose more than 2 percent on Monday after Russia said it was ready to meet other producers to discuss the market, where prices have more than halved from last year's highs due to a supply glut. Russia, one of the world's top three oil producers, has been unwilling to cut output to support prices and last November declined to cooperate with the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries in order to defend its market share. Russian oil output hit a new post-Soviet monthly high of 10.74 million barrels per day in September, despite a drop in global crude prices to 6-1/2-year lows in August.

  • India look to bounce back in second T20 against South Africa - The Economic Times

    CUTTACK: Handed a defeat in the first Twenty20 International, a determined India will look to plug the loopholes in bowling and bounce back in a must-win second T20 of the three-match series against South Africa here tomorrow. It's an unfamiliar situation for India to start a home series on a losing note, and the manner of the defeat in Dharamsala would put the hosts under tremendous pressure, especially the bowlers. Back after a break of three months, the onus would be on limited overs skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni to bring the team out of the rut and ensure India get back to winning ways. Unlike Dharamsala, the conditions are expected to be ideal for Dhoni's men here and the third T20 in Kolkata as the surface is likely to be low and slow in nature with rains and thundershowers in past few days.
