A fire at an aged care home in China's central Henan province killed 38 people, state media said, the latest disaster in a country with a poor record on work safety. The fire broke out late on Monday at a private nursing home in Lushan county, the official Xinhua news agency said on Tuesday, citing local authorities. The cause of the fire, which injured six people, was unclear, Xinhua said.
By Marc Jones LONDON (Reuters) - Greece's financial crisis and signs of growing opposition to austerity in Spain sent the euro to its lowest level in a month on Tuesday, while shares and commodities took a knock as the dollar powered higher. Europe's main markets returned to action after a long weekend with the mood unsettled by Sunday's strong local election showing by anti-austerity parties in Spain, while bets were put back on a U.S. rate hike this year after having been all but canceled over the past two months. Europe's stock markets fell between 0.5-1.3 percent as early resistance gave way and a fall by the euro back below $1.09 mirrored signs that contagion from the region's debt problems was creeping back into bond markets.
