Knife-wielding attacker slashes face of U.S. ambassador in South Korea

The U.S. ambassador to South Korea Mark Lippert leaves after he was slashed in the face by an unidentified assailant at a public forum in central SeoulBy James Pearson and Ju-min Park SEOUL (Reuters) - U.S. ambassador to South Korea Mark Lippert underwent two-and-a-half hours of surgery after he was slashed in the face by a Korean nationalist in an attack at a breakfast forum in Seoul on Thursday to discuss Korean reunification. In 2010, Kim tried to attack the Japanese ambassador to South Korea by throwing a piece of concrete and was given a suspended jail term, according to police. The attack was a protest against joint military exercises by South Korean and U.S. troops, which Kim said interfered with reconciliation between North and South Korea, according to police following an interrogation. U.S. President Barack Obama called Lippert to wish him a speedy recovery, a White House official said.




Islamic State torches oil field east of Tikrit: witness
Islamic State militants have set fire to oil wells in the Ajil field east of the city of Tikrit to try to hinder aerial attacks aimed at driving them from the oilfield, a witness and military source said. Black smoke could be seen rising from oil field since Wednesday afternoon, said the witness, who accompanied Iraqi militia and soldiers as they advanced on Tikrit from the east. Before the Islamic State took over the field in June it produced 25,000 barrels per day of crude that were shipped to the Kirkuk refinery, as well as 150 million cubic feet of gas per day piped to the government-controlled Kirkuk power station. An engineer at the site told Reuters last July that Islamic State fighters were pumping lower volumes of oil from Ajil, fearing that their primitive extraction techniques could ignite the gas.

AbbVie boosts cancer drug pipeline with $21 billion Pharmacyclics deal

A screen displays the share price for pharmaceutical maker AbbVie on the floor of the New York Stock ExchangeThe deal -- the latest example of a big drugmaker swooping on a biotech firm to refill its medicine pipeline -- confounds expectations that Pharmacyclics would sell out to Johnson & Johnson . AbbVie will pay $261.25 per share in cash and stock, a 13 percent premium to Pharmacyclics stock's closing price on Wednesday. AbbVie failed last October to buy Dublin-based Shire Plc for $55 billion after the United States took steps to deter such tax-lowering deals. Deutsche Bank analyst Robyn Karnauskas said the deal was positive for AbbVie as Pharmacyclics' blood cancer treatment Imbruvica would diversify the business beyond Humira.

Traders work at their screens in front of the German share price index DAX board at the stock exchange in FrankfurtBy Marc Jones LONDON (Reuters) - The euro hit an 11-year low against the dollar and the region's stocks nudged higher on Thursday, as the European Central Bank prepared to provide the finer details of its soon-to-be-launched 1 trillion euro stimulus plan. The common currency fell to as low as $1.1026, its lowest level since September 2003 and the region's stock and periphery bond markets [GVD/EUR] opened up as hopes for the ECB's policy meeting in Cyprus lifted investors' spirits.

For the last six week's the ECB has been working on exactly how it will choreograph the massive quantitative easing plan sketched out in January amid lingering resistance from countries such as Germany and technical issues that need ironing out.




Citigroup's past losses may have helped it win Costco business

A woman walks past a Citibank logo displayed outside the Citibank Plaza in Hong KongBy David Henry NEW YORK (Reuters) - Citigroup Inc had at least one advantage in its successful bid for the exclusive right to issue credit cards for Costco Wholesale Corp, rivals and tax specialists say: it lost so much money during the financial crisis that it has billions of dollars of tax credits.     Citigroup and Costco have not disclosed terms of the deal, and outsiders can only speculate about the reasons Citigroup bid aggressively enough to win the business. They declined to be identified because the negotiations were confidential.
