By Kylie Gumpert and Alexander Besant NEW YORK (Reuters) - Spectators packed Manhattan sidewalks on Thursday to watch the marching bands, floats and giant balloons of Macy's annual Thanksgiving Day Parade, held under tight security two weeks after deadly attacks in Paris. President Barack Obama sought to reassure Americans on Wednesday they were safe to take to roads, trains and planes over the holiday. Police walked alongside many of the parade groups and helicopters hovered overhead amid the enhanced security following the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris.
By Kirstin Ridley LONDON (Reuters) - A High Court judge on Thursday delayed the trial in a drawn-out battle between Royal Bank of Scotland and shareholders, criticising the lender and its legal advisers for being "unfocused" and swamped by 25 million documents. Thousands of shareholders are claiming around 4 billion pounds in compensation and alleging that RBS's 12 billion pound ($18 bln) investor cash call in 2008 - launched just before the bank's near collapse - contained misstatements and omissions. Judge Robert Hildyard adjourned the date for the high-profile trial by three months to March 6, 2017, saying he wanted to ensure fair and orderly legal proceedings in the case.
