Picture: PETROS GIANNAKOURIS/AP PHOTO ATHENS: World powers have urged Greece to move quickly as coalition talks inch towards a possible national unity Cabinet after an election win by pro-bailout parties that eased fears of a Greek eurozone exit. The Harvard-educated conservative leader Antonis Samaras won the election with his New Democracy party and held coalition talks after President Carolos Papoulias told parties that a deal by last night was a categorical imperative. The country cannot remain ungoverned even for an hour, Papoulias said. The 61-year-old Samaras, a former foreign minister, said: We need to resolve the question immediately. But his most likely coalition ally, Evangelos Venizelos of the socialist Pasok said he want ed a national unity Cabinet including other leftist parties. The best thing would be to form a government of national responsibility . . . Discussions on the formation of a government should be completed on Tuesday. Samaras said after the meeting that he had struck an agreement with Venizelos on the formation of a government of national salvation by Wednesday. Second-placed radical leftist Syriza, which has called for an unpopular EU-IMF bailout deal that has imposed harsh austerity conditions on many Greeks to be torn up, has already ruled out joining any coalition led by New Democracy. Samarass conservatives won 129 of the 300 parliamentary seats in Sundays historic vote. Execution for murder, rape pair RANGOON: A court has sentenced two men to death for the rape and murder of a woman whose killing sparked a wave of communal violence in Burma that left more than 50 people dead. The Myanma Ahlin daily reported yesterday the 27-year-old Buddhist woman was killed by Rohingya Muslims on May 28. On June 3, a Buddhist mob dragged 10 Rohingyas off a bus and killed them. The incidents helped set off almost a week of violence between ethnic Rakhine Buddhists and Rohingyas, whom many view as illegal Bangladesh immigrants. Earthquake risk in carbon capture plan WASHINGTON: A proposed method of cutting harmful carbon emissions in the atmosphere by storing them underground risks causing earthquakes and is unlikely to succeed, a US study says. The warning in a Perspective article in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, came just days after an independent US study warned carbon capture and storage (CCS) risked causing earthquakes. CCS is currently considered a viable strategy by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for pollution control from coal-based electric power. Burma rights activist star of Dublin concert Aung San Suu Kyi DUBLIN: Aung San Suu Kyi has received a rock star welcome in Ireland, with U2 singer Bono among those performing at a concert to honour the Burmese democracy leader after flying in with her on his private jet. Nobel Peace laureate Suu Kyi took to the stage with Bono to receive a prize from Amnesty International at the rights groups concert in Dublin. She was later given the freedom of the city of Dublin at a special ceremony and crowds joined in singing happy birthday as she received a cake to mark her 67th birthday. Bono thanked Suu Kyi for being at the concert, saying: We understand the signal your pres ence here sends out and we are humbled, we are grateful. Suu Kyi sat alongside Bono who has long supported her freedom struggle and dedicated the song Walk On to her after the pair travelled from Oslo, Norway, where they had co-hosted a peace forum. This award reminds me that 24 years ago I took on duties from which I shall never be relieved but you have given me the strength to carry out, Suu Kyi said. I have discovered how much more people care. The concert was attended by 2000 people.
