Asian stock markets fall, doubts about recovery in China
Nikkei at minus 2.13; Hong Kong and Shanghai negative. Consumer confidence in the U.S. falls, forecasts for growth in China reduced from 1.7 to 0.3 (April). Yen strengthens, penalizing exports from Japan.

Hong Kong (AsiaNews / Agencies) - Asian stock markets are down after heavy falls yesterday on Wall Street and in Europe. According to analysts, there are doubts about recovery in the U.S. but also in China, problems surrounding the euro and a soaring yen that penalizes exports from Japan.

By mid-morning Hong Kong was down to minus 1.14, the Shanghai market had opened at minus 0.7, at midday the Tokyo Stock Exchange was minus 2.13, minus 1.42 in Seoul.

Optimism has been curbed by fears that the U.S. recovery is much slower than previously thought. A research institute, the Conference Board found that consumer confidence in the U.S. fell from 62.7 in May to 52.9 in June, while it had been expected that the index would remain virtually unchanged.

The economic index even fell for China. In April, it showed a growth of 0.3%, while it had been estimated at 1.7%. China's growth is constrained by a reduction in Government incentives and the European debt crisis.

In Tokyo, exports have been affected by a high value of the yen, which yesterday gained strength on 16 currencies, while the euro continues to fall to its lowest in eight years. One euro is trading at 107.98 yen, the U.S. dollar at 88.53 yen.

Paris Massacre highlights the failure of Muslim integration in Europe
by Catherine FieldThe attack in the heart of France highlights the crisis of Europe’s model of coexistence. Social unrest, poverty and marginalisation feed youth extremism and radicalisation. A New Zealander journalist, expert on expertise in religion and interfaith dialogue, talks about it after undertaking a journey through the French Muslim world.
For Nîmes imam, Islam should not be held hostage by extremists
by Hochine DrouicheFrench imams condemn the Paris terrorist attacks and disassociate themselves from violence committed in "the name of our religion." At the same time, they ask Muslim communities to dare leading a life of dialogue and friendship with Europeans, without fear or arrogance. For centuries, Muslims have ruled out reason from their religious life. The vice president of French imams bears witness.
AsiaNews marks 12 years: Persecution and hope
by Bernardo CervelleraDespite a worldwide increase of ignorance, indifference and superficiality, many signs of love and hope resist even in the most gloomy situations: the Iraqi mother who gives birth to her child in a refugee camp and smiles even though she has nothing; the Indonesian Muslim mother who blesses her son who became a Christian and a priest; the Chinese Christian families that welcome children thrown away because of the one-child law.
