  • McDonald's probes copycat burger joint in separatist east Ukraine

    By Anton Zverev and Maria Kiselyova MOSCOW (Reuters) - The McDonald's fast food chain said its lawyers were investigating after entrepreneurs in separatist-controlled eastern Ukraine started selling McDonald's-style hamburgers out of a restaurant that the company shut down two years ago. The company said it pulled out of the Ukrainian city of Luhansk in May 2014 for security reasons after pro-Russian insurgents mounted an armed uprising there against Kiev's rule, and unilaterally declared the region's independence.

  • Gold climbs nearly 1 percent after Fed, BoJ stand pat

    Gold rose 1 percent on Thursday to its highest in a week as the Bank of Japan held policy steady, boosting the yen versus the dollar, and after the Federal Reserve signalled that it was in no rush to tighten monetary policy. The Fed left interest rates unchanged after its latest meeting on Wednesday and, while keeping the door open to a hike in June, showed little sign it was in a hurry to tighten policy amid an apparent slowdown in the U.S. economy. Spot gold (XAU=) was up 0.7 percent at $1,254.96 an ounce at 1155 GMT, off an earlier one-week high of $1,258.70, while U.S. gold futures (GCv1) for June delivery were up $6.70 an ounce at $1,257.10.
