The Conservative party election bus faces the Liberal Democrat bus before a day of campaigning in LondonBy David Milliken LONDON (Reuters) - Less than two weeks away from a knife-edge election, Britain's biggest economic problem, stagnant productivity, has barely surfaced in the political debate. Whoever wins on May 7 will struggle to keep their promises unless Britain can find a way to follow up on the strongest job creation in a generation by getting people to produce more once they are in work, generating more profits and tax revenues. After an initially slow recovery from financial crisis, Britain last year had the fastest growth rate of any major advanced economy. Prime Minister David Cameron, seeking to break ahead of the opposition Labour Party in the polls, touts his economic successes.

Ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi gestures after his trial behind bars at a court in the outskirts of CairoEgypt said on Saturday it had extended by three months a state of emergency imposed on parts of northern Sinai in October after Islamist militants stepped up attacks in the peninsula bordering Israel, Gaza and the Suez Canal. Insurgents have killed hundreds of soldiers and policemen in Sinai since mid-2013, lashing out after then-army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi ousted Islamist President Mohamed Mursi following protests. The decision, announced in a statement from the presidency, will be implemented in Rafah, al-Arish, Sheikh Zuweid and surrounding areas starting on Sunday. The measure was first introduced after 33 security personnel were killed in an attack in late October at a checkpoint in northern Sinai.
