An airport worker walks between Malaysia Airlines planes at Kuala Lumpur International AirportBy Al-Zaquan Amer Hamzah KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Malaysia Airlines , the country's loss-making flag carrier, will cut 30 percent of its workforce as part of a sweeping restructuring that will cost 6 billion ringgit ($1.90 billion), majority investor Khazanah Nasional [KHAZA.UL] said. Malaysia Airlines will be de-listed from the Kuala Lumpur exchange by the end of 2014, Khazanah said, adding that it aims to return the carrier to profitability within three years of the de-listing. "Recent tragic events and ongoing difficulties at MAS have created a perfect storm that is allowing this restructuring to take place," Khazanah Managing Director Azman Mokhtar told reporters in Kuala Lumpur. Ahmad Jauhari Yahya will stay on as chief executive until July next year, Khazanah said, adding that the search for a new CEO has begun.

Protesters gather outside the venue where Britain’'s Prime Minister David Cameron is addressing the CBI Scotland Annual Dinner, in Glasgow, on August 28, 2014Support for Scottish independence is increasing three weeks ahead of a referendum, a poll published Friday showed, amid attempts by British Prime Minister David Cameron to make the business case for retaining the union. Cameron on Thursday urged Scottish people to reject independence in a rare speech in Glasgow in which he argued the union was a strong economic advantage. A Survation survey found 47 percent of respondents would vote "Yes" to independence, compared to 53 percent who would vote "No", excluding people who were undecided. "Yes" campaign leader and Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond was widely seen to have won the debate against "No" campaign leader Alistair Darling.
