Some of London's brightest financial technology talents have begun weighing a future elsewhere, worried Britain will lose its hard-won position as an industry hub if it opts out of the European Union in four months, according to Reuters: http://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-britain-eu-fintech-idUKKCN0WA237

According to a by-lined piece in the Washington Post: 'In the best case, doing so [Brexiting] would hurt their [Britain's] economy for the next 5 to 10 years, and leave them no better off after that. And in the worst, it would send political shockwaves through Europe that would dwarf the economic ones hitting Britain': https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2016/03/03/everything-you-need-to-know-about-britain-leaving-the-european-union/

The President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday told the European Union that his administration was doing its utmost best to protect the fundamental human rights of persons in the ongoing counter-terrorism operations against Boko Haram insurgents, reports the Biafra Herald: http://www.thebiafraherald.co/2016/02/buhari-assures-eu-of-commitment-to.html
