State media in Egypt are reporting that a former prime minister, Kamal Ganzouri, has provisionally agreed to form a new government after talks with the ruling military council. If he takes the job, Mr Ganzouri would still be accountable to the military council, which has rejected calls to step down immediately. Youssef Taha has this profile.

Mr Ganzouri's cabinet introduced some economic liberalisation measures. Many Egyptians still view him as an official who was not corrupt. He was nicknamed the "minister of the poor" because of his way of looking after the interests of people in low income.

The Indian cabinet has approved its biggest economic reform in years: the opening up of the country's vast retail market to foreign supermarkets. The move paves the way for companies such as Wal-Mart, the world's biggest retailer, to gain access to India's lucrative retail sector which is worth an estimated $450bn a year. The move had been bitterly opposed by millions of small traders who fear they'll be put out of business by the retail giants. Dharmendra Kumar is a spokesman for a lobby group which opposes foreign investment in India.
印度内阁同意数年内实施最大规模的经济改革:向外国超市开放本国广阔的零售市场。这就为诸如沃尔玛之类的世界最大零售商铺平了道路,进入印度利润丰厚的零售业,据估计每年价值4500亿美元。数百万小商人强烈反对,他们担心自己被零售巨头赶出市场。Dharmendra Kumar是一个游说组织的发言人,该组织反对外国投资进入印度。

"It's a threat to the grass roots sector which caters for poor consumers; and it's also a threat to their supply sources, to the smaller markets and smaller farmers. So it would be dangerous for the established retail sector if it's not regulated properly."
“对于那些服务穷人的底层零售店来说,这是个威胁。这对供应方、小市场和农场来说也是个威胁。所以,如果管理不当,这对已成立的零售部门来说很危险。

Trinidadian police have so far given few details of the threat to the prime minister, but local media are speaking of an assassination plot against Ms Persad-Bissessar and some of her ministers. Those detained are reported to include two former soldiers. Trinidad and Tobago has been under a limited state of emergency since August because of a surge of violent crime linked to drugs gangs.

They were abandoned in three vehicles on one of the busiest roads of the city. Although groups like the Sinaloa cartel have operated in Guadalajara for years, it is still considered one of the safest destinations in Mexico, and it hasn't been as affected by the violence of the drugs war as other large cities like Monterrey or Acapulco.
