By Kizito Makoye DAR ES SALAAM (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - When Halima Rahim became a mother for the first time, friends and acquaintances in Tanzania's commercial capital, Dar Es Salaam, were quick to offer advice and help. Had Rahim listened to them, she would have raised her baby on porridge rather than breast milk, not realising the risk to her daughter's health. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), infants who are partly breastfed or not breastfed at all may face a higher risk of death from diarrhoea and other infections.
Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Wednesday that his government would not implement reform measures beyond what was agreed with lenders at a euro zone summit earlier this month. "I know well the framework of the deal we signed at the euro zone summit on July 12," Tsipras told Sto Kokkino radio. Nothing beyond that." Tsipras also said the country would report a primary budget balance that breaks even or registers a deficit this year, depending on the financial situation.
