The Anglican Church has slapped sanctions on its liberal U.S. branch for supporting same-sex marriage, a move that averted a formal schism in the world's third largest Christian denomination but left deep divisions unresolved. The Anglican communion, which counts some 85 million members in 165 countries, has been in crisis since 2003 because of arguments over sexuality and gender between liberal churches in the West and their conservative counterparts, mostly in Africa.

Abe picked two veteran lawmakers with friendly ties to China for top party posts on Wednesday in an apparent signal of hope for a thaw in chilly ties with Beijing and a summit with Chinese leader Xi Jinping. Abe also gave women almost a third of the posts in his 18-minister cabinet to show his commitment to promoting women as part of his "Abenomics" growth strategy. The female ministers are: (L-R) Economy, Trade and Industry Minister Yuko Obuchi, Gender Equality Minister and minister for promoting women Haruko Arimura, Justice Minister Midori Matsushima, Minister-in-Charge of the Abduction Issue and head of the National Public Safety Commission Eriko Yamatani and Internal Affairs and Communications Minister Sanae Takaichi.

Masako Mori (4th L), Japan's minister for boosting birth rate and gender issues, speaks to reporters after a meeting with top Japanese business leaders at Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's official residence in Tokyo June 24, 2014. Abe is set to unveil measures ranging from phased corporate tax cuts and public pension reforms to proposed dance hall deregulation, but the latest salvo from his three-pronged strategy for economic revival may disappoint some investors urging more radical steps. Abe, who took office 18 months ago pledging to end persistent deflation and generate sustainable growth with a trifecta of monetary, fiscal and reform steps, will on Tuesday deliver the latest instalment of his so-called "Third Arrow" of long-term economic policies.

A street vendor sings a prayer during a wake for Silvia Dinora Rivera in the market stall where Rivera used to work with her mother, in La Libertad in San Salvador June 22, 2013. Rivera was 37 years old when her husband tied her to a chair, poured gasoline over her and set fire to the house. She later died in the hospital. Central America encompasses some of the countries with the world's highest rates of femicide, defined as the murder of a woman for reasons connected with her gender. El Salvador has the highest incidence of femicide in the world, and Guatemala has the third highest rate, according to a study published by the NGO, The Academic Council on the United Nations System. According to UN Women, in Honduras femicide is thought to be the second most common cause of death among women of reproductive age. The organisation also states that an average of two women are murdered every day in Guatemala. November 25 marks the UN's International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.
