A South Korean professor of climate change economics will lead the Nobel Prize-winning group of climate scientists who keep track of global warming.
Hoesung Lee, elected chairman Tuesday of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, told The Associated Press that the United Nations-affiliated science group will do more to examine the effects of man-made global warming on more local levels, "especially in developing countries."
In his campaign for the job, Lee pledged to work more closely with business and industry and pay special attention to job creation, health, poverty reduction and technology development.
Western governments have condemned Badawi's treatment, and rights groups including Amnesty International have campaigned for his release.
The Foreign Office said in a statement that ministers "regularly raise human rights cases with the Saudi Arabian government at the highest levels, including the case of Raif Badawi."
Fenton, a former Oxford University professor of poetry and war correspondent, said Badawi's punishment represented "a world of inconceivable cruelty, but intimately linked to ours by business, strategic interests, military and diplomatic ties."
Officials in rebel-controlled eastern Ukraine announced Tuesday they will postpone local elections that were going to be held shortly, sidestepping a contentious issue that had blocked progress toward a resolution for the war in Ukraine.
U. S. State Department spokesman Mark Toner also welcomed the rebels' decision.
