French Economy Minister Emmanuel Macron speaks during the questions to the government session at the National Assembly in ParisBy Michel Rose PARIS (Reuters) - French Economy Minister Emmanuel Macron launched what he called a "Great March" on Saturday, a door-to-door campaign across France to collect voters' grievances ahead of 2017 presidential elections, in a new sign of his political ambitions. Some 60 teams of 10-40 volunteers will knock on voters' doors in about 50 cities across France, asking questions such as "What do you think doesn't work in France?", a spokeswoman for "En Marche" party told Reuters. Macron unveiled his movement in April, saying he wants it to be neither of the left nor the right.

By Tife Owolabi YENAGOA, Nigeria (Reuters) - Militants attacked the major Nembe pipeline in Nigeria's Delta region, two officials said on Saturday, hours after the Niger Delta Avengers militants claimed a strike on the facility.

With the June 23 vote looming, British "hacks" who had paid thousands of pounds to watch Cameron's every move in Japan and to try to quiz him and his team on "Brexit", were frustrated to be swept off to a Japanese dance and music show miles from the summit venue. "This time we've got neither, it's a bit of a joke." The situation was compounded by the fact that Cameron's media team, determined to concentrate on the official agenda of the Group of Seven talks, lacked his head of communications, who had been seconded to the "In" Europe campaign.
