Asian shares, oil fall as U.S.-China trade spat escalatesTOKYO/SYDNEY (Reuters) – Asian shares fell to a 2-1/2 week low on Monday after U.S. President Donald Trump cranked up trade tensions by going ahead with tariffs on Chinese imports, prompting Beijing to immediately respond in kind.

Spreadbetters suggested a subdued start for European shares, with FTSE futures off about 0.1 percent.

Pope calls for dialogue as Nicaragua violence escalatesPope Francis called Sunday for dialogue in Nicaragua after new clashes killed at least seven people, the latest bloodshed in weeks of anti-government protests that have left more than 100 dead. The Church has tried to mediate the crisis in the Central American country, but called off peace talks with President Daniel Ortega’s government last week after a march led by victims’ mothers was met with gunfire, killing at least 16 people. Violence erupted again Saturday, as protesters fired homemade mortars to fend off police crackdowns in the cities of Masaya and Tipitapa, both near the capital Managua.
