LONDON — Facebook’s chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg, escaped tough questioning during congressional testimony this month in part because American lawmakers weren’t well versed about how the social network functions. On Thursday, one of his deputies faced a decidedly sharper inquisition from a panel in Britain.
The dueling experiences highlight the different approaches taken on both sides of the Atlantic toward oversight of personal data and the social media giants who hold it. While the United States has largely eschewed regulating companies li..
Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has been summoned by the country's lawmakers over a spate of killings in the country's middle belt and other parts of the country.
Energy giants told they have to address competition concerns or deal will be referred for full investigation
A planned merger between Npower and SSE could push up electricity prices for customers, the competition watchdog has warned.
The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) told the two energy giants they have to address its concerns or it will refer the deal for a full investigation.
Several of UK’s “Big Six” gas and electric companies have come under fire in recent weeks after hiking prices.

Rachel Merelie, senior director at the CMA, said: “We know that competition in the energy market does not work as well as it might.

10 South Sudan Aid Workers Are Abducted, U.N. Says
Ten relief workers traveling in South Sudan have been abducted by an armed group, the United Nations said Thursday. The kidnapping underscores the risks to humanitarian aid providers in the war-torn African country.
A statement from the United Nations said the aid workers, all from South Sudan, disappeared on Wednesday during a trip through the southern part of the country. The statement gave no details on the armed group that seized them or its demands.
This is the third time in six months that a group of aid workers has been held by militants in South Sudan, the world’s youngest country. At least 98 aid workers have been killed in South Sudan since it devolved into civil war in 2013, just two years after it was founded. The majority of the aid workers killed since the conflict began are South Sudanese.
The United Nations statement called for the release of the workers “without condition so that their work can continue.”
A charge placed on disposable coffee cups in select Starbucks outlets has led to a 150 per cent increase in reusable cup use, according to a preliminary assessment by the company.
As part of the coffee giant’s efforts to tackle disposable coffee cup waste, it has added a 5p charge to all paper cups sold in 35 shops across parts of central and west London.
The increase, measured by the number of customers redeeming the 25p reusable cup discount, was observed just six weeks into the company’s three-month trial in the selected outlets.

All money made from the charge goes to environmental charity Hubbub.
“We are encouraged by the initial results of our trial that show that by charging 5p and increasing communication on this issue, ..
