JAKARTA, Oct 18 (Reuters) - Indonesia, the world's biggest exporter of coal used for power generation, is facing challenges in hitting its output target for the fuel because of heavy rains that have slowed activity at key mines in recent months. Global coal prices have soared to records this year on a recovery in industrial fuel demand and constrained mine output in top coal consumer China. Indonesia targeted a jump in output and exports to capitalize on the boom, but heavy rains have slowed mine and port operations, mining executives told Reuters. The Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry in April raised its 2021 output target to a record 625 million tonnes, 11% higher than 2020 output, from an initial target of 550 million tonnes, with the higher supply intended primarily for exports. But through September output has risen by only 8.7% from a year earlier to an estimated 456.77 million tonnes, energy ministry data showed, while exports dropped 4.6% to 230.45 million tonnes … [Read more...] about Indonesia’s higher coal output target thwarted by heavy rains
It’s been over eight years since Laura Saxton’s 21-year-old pregnant daughter Kelsie Schelling vanished. Saxton still doesn’t have all the answers she’s searched tirelessly for. From the moment she realized Schelling was missing, Saxton led the fight to find her daughter. She questioned her daughter’s boyfriend Donthe Lucas on the phone herself, organized community searches as the case went cold and followed up on leads through the “Help Find Kelsie” Facebook page -- including one that claimed the young expectant mother was still alive. “Now that she is gone, I’ve had to turn into a fighter,” Saxton told “20/20.” When the time came, Saxton even took the stand against her daughter’s killer. Though Lucas has been sentenced to life behind bars for her murder, the exact location of Schelling’s remains have not been revealed and Saxton still hasn’t been able to lay her to rest. “I'm never going to recover without getting her back,” Saxton said. “I still have nowhere to go to … [Read more...] about Mom fights to bring pregnant daughter’s killer to justice 8 years after she disappeared
Miami — Venezuela's government said Saturday it would halt negotiations with its opponents in retaliation for the extradition to the U.S. of a close ally of President Nicolás Maduro who prosecutors believe could be the most significant witness ever about corruption in the South American country. Jorge Rodríguez, who has been heading the government's delegation, said his team wouldn't travel to Mexico City for the next scheduled round of negotiations. The announcement capped a tumultuous day that saw businessman Alex Saab placed on a U.S.-bound plane in Cape Verde after a 16-month fight by Maduro and his allies, including Russia, who consider the Colombian-born businessman a Venezuelan diplomat. A few hours after news of Saab's extradition blew up Venezuelan social media, six American oil executives held on house arrest were taken back to jail by security forces — a sign that relations between Washington and Caracas could be upended after months of quiet diplomacy since … [Read more...] about Venezuela halts talks after Maduro ally’s extradition to U.S.
