An armoured Israeli military vehicle drives along Israel's border with Egypt's Sinai peninsula, near the Nitzana crossing in this picture taken January 30, 2014. An Islamist insurgency boiling in the desert peninsula has claimed casualties among the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO), requiring new and often cumbersome precautions. And while participating countries do not say so publicly, there has been some behind-the-scenes debate over the MFO mandate at a period of unprecedentedly close Israeli-Egyptian security cooperation. In northeastern areas of Sinai once strictly demilitarised, Egypt, with Israel's consent, now routinely brings in troops,tanks, fighter jets and helicopters to fight insurgents.

A truck drives past crosses placed in memory of accident victims along highway BR-163, also known as the Highway of Death, in Lucas do Rio Verde, Mato Grosso state, September 27, 2012. Investment in Brazil probably grew at the fastest pace in three years in the first quarter, official data should show on May 29, 2013. But as much as two thirds of the rise may have come from the construction of heavy trucks - hardly the steady capital spending that Brazil so badly needs. Brazil's meager growth since 2011 is due in large part to that dismal investment rate, which President Dilma Rousseff is struggling to boost toward her goal of 25 percent of GDP. While consumer spending has kept the economy plodding along, a lack of capital spending and a host of transportation bottlenecks makes it hard to satisfy demand without stoking inflation. Last year Rousseff announced more than $100 billion in private road, rail and port concessions - a clear shift in strategy from the cumbersome state programs that disappointed in recent years.
