PARIS (AP) — French authorities are taking steps to crack down on the flow of young would-be jihadis embarking to fight in Syria's civil war.

By Gabriela Baczynska DONETSK, Ukraine (Reuters) - When a group of pro-Kiev activists decided to hold a rally in Ukraine's eastern city of Donetsk, they found that no shops stocked ribbons in blue and yellow, the colors of the Ukrainian flag. Instead, they had to use social media to appeal to supporters in other parts of Ukraine to send the ribbons to their improvised headquarters, in a cellar near Donetsk's Lenin Square. "I speak Russian and grew up in a region that, compared to other parts of Ukraine, may seem less patriotic. But I know that the flag of my country is in yellow and blue and I have no other flags, or nostalgia for other symbols." Since pro-Russian activists and gunmen in unmarked uniforms took over about a dozen public buildings around Ukraine's eastern Donbass region this month, they have grabbed international attention and dominated the debate in the east about Ukraine's future.

The Euro logo pictured in front of the European Central Bank (ECB) building in Frankfurt am Main, central Germany, on September 5, 2013Eurozone public finances improved in 2013 as the economy finally turned the corner on a record recession but total debt levels remained dangerously high, official data showed on Wednesday. The overall figures are broadly in line with signs that the causes and impact of the eurozone debt crisis, which at one point threatened to destroy the euro, are fading. Total accumulated debt, however, increased to 92.6 percent of gross domestic product, up from 90.7 percent, rising even further above the European Union 60-percent limit. The continued increase in debt levels reflects the high cost of the economic slump and debt crisis as governments borrowed heavily in an effort to stabilise their economies.
