  • GlaxoSmithKline beats profit forecasts despite Advair hit, lower margins

    A further slide in sales of lung drug Advair and lower profit margins following a business overhaul hit GlaxoSmithKline (GSK.L) in the second quarter, although core earnings per share fell by a less than expected 9 percent. The drugmaker recently sold its marketed cancer drugs to Novartis (NOVN.VX) and bought the Swiss group's vaccines, while increasing its consumer health business through a joint venture. The revamp is designed to ensure sustainable growth, after past profit misses, but the strategy will take time to pay off and GSK on Wednesday reiterated its forecast for a high-teens percentage decline in 2015 earnings, at constant exchange rates.

  • Yakub Menon case: Facts show how badly legal system failed

    It would be a national tragedy of epic proportions and a significant miscarriage of justice if Yakub Memon hangs for his role in the 1993 Mumbai blasts. Facts now emerging (or re-emerging) in the public domain show how badly the legal system has failed in Memon's case. A letter written by B Raman, a former intelligence involved in Memon’s return and now published posthumously by Rediff.com, and a 2007 report by journalist Maseeh Rahman about how the Memons led by Yakub returned to India after the bombings, make it amply clear that most of the Memon family may have participated only passively in enabling the bombings. There is good reason to believe that after the initial anger over the Mumbai communal riots of 1992 evaporated, most of them did not want to stay prisoners of Pakistan's ISI, which helped mastermind the blasts.

  • Hours before Yakub Memon due to hang, court rejects final appeal

    By Suchitra Mohanty and Aditya Kalra NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Yakub Memon's last hope of avoiding the hangman's noose for his role in the 1993 Mumbai bombings was dashed on Wednesday, after the Supreme Court threw out his final plea for mercy hours before he was due to be executed. Memon could go to the gallows before 7 a.m. (0130 GMT) on Thursday, his 53rd birthday, for his role as the "driving spirit" in a series of bombings that killed at least 257 people. The case has aroused controversy because police considered Memon's brother, "Tiger" Memon, and mafia don Dawood Ibrahim to be the masterminds behind attacks designed to avenge the destruction of an ancient mosque by Hindu zealots in 1992.
