Starbucks to phase out plastic straws as opposition to them growsBy Alana Wise and Caroline Hroncich NEW YORK (Reuters) – Starbucks Corp said on Monday it will begin phasing out use of plastic straws at its restaurants by 2020, giving environmentalists a sizeable victory in their campaign to convince restaurants to abandon plastic utensils.

Zimbabwe opposition says "no election" without ballot paper deal

Zimbabwe opposition says "no election" without ballot paper dealZimbabwe’s main opposition leader Nelson Chamisa made a veiled threat on Wednesday to boycott elections on July 30 if there is no agreement between the independent election agency and political parties on ballot papers.

The MDC is wary of any attempt to put it at a disadvantage to Mnangagwa and the ruling ZANU-PF party, insisting there be a deal on how to design, print and store ballot papers.

South Sudan opposition accuses government of breaking ceasefire
