Russian mourners gather at the spot where opposition leader Boris Nemtsov was shot dead near St Basil's Cathedral in Moscow, on February 28, 2015President Vladimir Putin vowed to punish the killers of Kremlin critic Boris Nemtsov as Russian opposition figures denounced what they called a "political murder" and Western leaders called for a full probe. The 55-year-old former deputy premier, a vocal Putin critic prominent at opposition rallies, was shot in the back several times just before midnight Friday as he walked across a bridge a stone's throw from the Kremlin walls. The brazen assassination is the latest in a string of murders of opposition figures in Putin's 15 years in power and recalls the shooting of anti-Kremlin reporter Anna Politkovskaya, gunned down on Putin's birthday in October 2006.

Timothy McAlevey looks out of a window while searching for debris from missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, over the Indian Ocean off the coast of western Australia. Australia, Indonesia and Malaysia will lead a trial to enhance the tracking of the aircraft over remote oceans, allowing planes to be more easily found should they vanish like Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, Australia's transport minister said Sunday, March 1, 2015. The announcement comes one week ahead of the anniversary of the disappearance of the flight, which vanished in 2104 on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board. No trace of the plane has been found.

An employee works at a logistic center in HuaibeiBy Pete Sweeney SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Hours after China's central bank cut interest rates to battle slowing growth and rising deflationary risk, an official survey showed on Sunday that activity in China's factory sector contracted for a second straight month in February. The new reading ended a four-month streak of declining numbers, and the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said the rise should be viewed more positively as it occurred despite the week-long Lunar New Year holiday, during which PMI usually contracts. Accounting for 48 percent of China's $10.2 trillion economy last year, the services sector has weathered the growth downturn better than factories have, partly because it depends less on foreign demand. MIXED NEWS IS BAD NEWS From the breakdown of factory data, economic performance is uncertain.
