US President Barack Obama (2nd L) speaks to Indian child rights activist and 2014 Nobel Peace Prize winner Kailash Satyarthi (C), as his wife Sumedha Satyarth (L) and US First Lady Michelle Obama look on, in New Delhi, on January 27, 2015President Barack Obama said the United States could be India's "best partner" as he on Tuesday wrapped up a three-day visit to New Delhi by highlighting the shared values of the world's biggest democracies. Speaking to an audience of young people, the US president reiterated that the relationship between Washington and New Delhi "can be one of the defining partnerships of this century" but warned the battle against climate change would be doomed unless India was fully on board. The speech was the finale of a packed visit which has seen a dramatic upturn in an often troubled relationship, including the signing of a new "friendship" declaration between Obama and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The right-wing premier was persona non grata in Washington less than a year ago but has developed a close bond with Obama, with their two countries both keen to counter-balance the rise of China.

One of Mali's most senior military officers survived an assassination attempt in the capital, Bamako, on Monday, three sources told Reuters. General Mohamed Ould Meydou, adviser to the chief of staff of Mali's army and the most senior Arab officer in the military, was shot by unknown gunmen, but was only lightly wounded in the incident, two of the sources said. One of the sources, a medic at the Gabriel Toure hospital in Bamako, said Ould Meydou was well enough to leave hospital after receiving treatment on Monday evening. Taureg-led separatists and a mix of Islamist groups with links to al Qaeda occupied northern Mali for most of 2012 until a French intervention in early 2013 scattered them into the desert.

By Magdalena Mis LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - The three West African countries worst hit by Ebola risk a "double disaster" unless a multi-million dollar plan is put in place to help their economies recover, Oxfam said on Tuesday. In Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone people were struggling to make ends meet having seen their incomes plummet, the aid agency said. "The world was late in waking up to the Ebola crisis, there can be no excuses for not helping to put these economies and lives back together," Mark Goldring, Oxfam's chief executive, said during a visit to Liberia.
