Logo of the state-run bank Ziraat Bank is pictured at its headquarters in Istanbul March 15, 2015. Under President Tayyip Erdogan, an authoritarian leader with roots in Islamist politics and an aversion to usury, Turkey is hoping it can turn disdain for traditional banks among the pious into a boom in Islamic finance, where, instead of interest, banks charge service fees and depositors share in bank profits. Two state-run banks - Halkbank and Ziraat Bank - are pushing ahead with plans to launch Islamic units this year, joining four existing private Islamic lenders. Ziraat, Turkey's largest unlisted lender, is due to launch its Islamic business in May. To match TURKEY-BANKS/ REUTERS/Murad Sezer (TURKEY - Tags: BUSINESS LOGO)

Men rest after salvaging metal on the 30th floor of the "Tower of David" skyscraper in Caracas
Men rest after salvaging metal on the 30th floor of the "Tower of David" skyscraper in Caracas February 3, 2014. It boasts a helicopter landing pad, glorious views of the Avila mountain range, and large balconies for weekend barbecues. Yet a 45-storey skyscraper in the center of Venezuela's capital Caracas is no five-star hotel or swanky apartment block: it is a slum, probably the highest in the world. Dubbed the "Tower of David", the building was intended to be a shining new financial center but was abandoned around 1994 after the death of its developer - banker and horse-breeder David Brillembourg - and the collapse of the financial sector. Squatters invaded the huge concrete skeleton in 2007, then-president Hugo Chavez's socialist government turned a blind eye, and now about 3,000 people call the tower their home.

President Ma Ying-jeou says the pact with Taiwan's main export market is essential for the island's prosperity. However, the main opposition party says it could hurt small service companies, and many others are reluctant to let China expand its influence over a fiercely independent and democratic territory that China still sees as a renegade province.

Mount Sinabung continued to spew volcanic ash on Thursday as thousands of residents remained in temporary shelters fearful of more eruptions. Mount Sinabung's last eruption on Tuesday lasted about 20 minutes and sent volcanic ash 3,000 metres into the sky from its crater, authorities said, adding that there were no casualties as everyone in the nearby villages had been moved to shelters.

Police officials expel members of the public after they wore red clown noses during the debate to vote on a motion of confidence in Lisbon July 30, 2013. Portugal's Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho ruled out any backtracking on its bailout terms on Tuesday as his revamped government easily won a confidence vote intended to show it has repaired an internal rift over austerity. A dozen protesters in the parliament's gallery put on red clown noses to show their disdain for the vote. REUTERS/Rafael Marchante (PORTUGAL - Tags: POLITICS BUSINESS CIVIL UNREST)

Hun Sen has been premier for 28 years, bringing stability after years of war and the genocidal late-1970s regime of the Khmer Rouge but, his critics say, he has shown disdain for democracy through the intimidation of opponents and electoral fraud.

A view showing one of the entrances to Bab al-Aziziya, Muammar Gaddafi's former Tripoli compound July 17, 2013. The 6 sq km (2.5 sq mile) complex, a city within a city from which Gaddafi orchestrated eccentric defiance of Western powers and disdain for his own people for four decades, is to be turned into a public park, Tourism Minister Ikram Abdusalam Bash Imam said on July 16, 2013. The complex was first bombed by U.S. jets in 1986 in retaliation for the Libyan bombing of a discotheque in Berlin - but finally pulverised in August 2011 when NATO warplanes bombed it to help rebels to seize control of the capital.
