Impatient European leaders pressed a humiliated Prime Minister David Cameron on Tuesday to speed up Britain's divorce from the EU, warning that the UK cannot expect special treatment outside the bloc. Five days after Britons shocked the world by voting to leave the 28-nation EU, British domestic political chaos spiralled with the leader of the opposition Labour party losing a no-confidence vote but refusing to resign. US President Barack Obama warned however against "hysteria" as stock markets and the pound staged a tentative recovery after days of losses that saw sterling slump to a 31-year low.
Furniture giant Ikea said Tuesday it was recalling more than 35 million chests of drawers in the US and Canada after six children were killed when the dressers tipped over. The recalled furniture is "unstable if they are not properly anchored to the wall, posing a tip-over and entrapment hazard that can result in death or injuries to children," Ikea North America said in a statement. The recall affects 29 million units sold in the United States and a further 6.6 million units sold in Canada, Ikea said.
