TORONTO Cowboys Randy Gregory Jersey , Sept. 26 (Xinhua) -- Canada's main stock market rebounded Friday from recent loses with Bombardier and BlackBerry shares leading the jump, boosted by the news that negotiations have concluded on Canada's long-sought free trade deal with the European Union.

Toronto Stock Exchange's benchmark S&PTSX Composite Index advanced 133.20 points, or 0.89 percent, at 15,026.77 with energy and info-tech shares leading the charge.

At the Canada-EU summit in Ottawa and Toronto, the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement has been signed Friday and the final text has been released.

Hailing the bilateral free trade pact as a historic milestone, participant leaders said the trade agreement will create 80,000 new jobs and will boost Canada-EU trade by 20 percent.

Info-tech shares were the biggest gainer on the Toronto exchange, up 2.00 percent to 41.36 Canadian dollars (36.92 U.S. dollars) with Blackberry Ltd. gained 5.15 percent to 11.44 Canadian dollars (10.21 U.S. dollars).

The smartphone company's latest financial report showed that it lost 207 million U.S dollars or 0.39 U.S. dollars per share for the second quarter, which was a smaller quarterly loss in an early sign that its drawn-out turnaround efforts might be working.

Industrials stocks were also up 1.44 percent to 194.07 Canadian dollars (173.27 U.S. dollars) with Bombardier Inc., the world's only manufacturer of both planes and trains, advanced 3.42 percent to 3.63 Canadian dollars (3.24 U.S. dollars) Friday after saying that aircraft leasing company Macquarie Air Finance had signed an purchase agreement for up To 50 C-series Aircraft.

Investors were also encouraged by data that U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis reported on Friday morning. The U.S. economy increased an annual rate of 4.6 percent in the second quarter of 2014. In the first quarter, real GDP decreased 2.1 percent.

Meanwhile, energy stocks climbed 1.48 percent to 293.56 Canadian dollars (262.10 U.S. dollars), with the price of U.S. crude oil showing a similar gain. Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. rose 2.59 percent to 44.33 Canadian dollars (39.58 U.S. dollars), and Suncor Energy Inc. added 0.99 percent to 40.69 Canadian dollars (36.33 U.S. dollars).

In other sectors, financials, the most heavily weighed sector, gained 0.81 percent to 253.80 Canadian dollars (226.60 U.S. dollars). Metals& mining sector surged 1.42 percent to 815.67 Canadian dollars (728.27 U.S. dollars); Utilities rose 0.70 percent to 215.86 Canadian dollars (192.73 U.S. dollars).

Also on Friday, the Canadian Department of Finance reported that there was a budgetary deficit of 1.2 billion dollars in July 2014, compared to a deficit of 2.0 billion in July 2013; and the government remains on track to balance the budget in 2015.

In the currency market, the Canadian dollar moved down to 0.8965 U.S. dollars from Thursday's 0.9003 U.S dollars.

ABUJA, May 6 (Xinhua) -- At least 200 people were killed in a fresh attack by insurgents in a border town in Nigeria's northeastern state of Borno, an official said on Tuesday.

Dressed in military uniforms, the insurgents attacked Gamboru, a remote town located at the Nigeria-Cameroon border late Monday, shooting indiscriminately at residents, said Ahmed Zannah, a representative of the area at the Nigerian Senate.

According to the national lawmaker, the attackers stormed the town when some of the residents were fast asleep, setting ablaze houses while shooting at residents who tried to escape from the fire.

"About 200 persons were confirmed dead after the incident, with several others injured. Almost all the houses in the town were destroyed by the hoodlums who threw improvised explosive devises ( IEDs) at the buildings," Zannah told reporters in the state capital Maiduguri.

Eyewitnesses said the insurgents set ablaze some 17 trucks at a cattle market in the town, while damaging about 100 vehicles, especially cars.

As of the time of filing this report, security agencies were yet to make any official comments on the attack. Residents blamed Boko Haram for the attack, although there was no immediate claim by the group for the mass killing.

Nigeria, Africa's most populous country, is currently grappling with security challenges, one of which is the insurgency of Boko Haram, a sect which seeks to enshrine the Islamic Sharia law in the constitution.

Last Thursday, at least 20 people were killed in a blast in the capital Abuja, where the World Economic Forum on Africa will kick off on Wednesday.

BEIJING, March 6 (Xinhua) -- The latest developments on the Korean Peninsula have further complicated the situation in Northeast Asia, and highlighted an imperative need for all the concerned parties to return to peaceful negotiations within the framework of the Six-Party Talks.

On Monday, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) reportedly test-fired four ballistic missiles into waters off its east coast, the second of its kind in less than a month if confirmed.

A report by the South Korean news agency Yonhap said Pyongyang's latest missile test is in "an apparent reaction to huge military drills by Washington and Seoul that Pyongyang insists are an invasion rehearsal."

The latest missile test took place two months after top DPRK leader Kim Jong Un warned in his New Year's message of more missile tests aimed at improving Pyongyang's capabilities to defend its security interests.

Those include deterring hostilities from Seoul and Washington, such as their two-month-long joint military drills described by the DPRK as military provocations and the planned deployment of the U.S. THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) system in South Korea.

The U.S.-South Korean planned deployment of THAAD has also sparked strong dissatisfaction and firm opposition from both Russia and China as. Cheap Jerseys   Cheap Jerseys   Cheap Jerseys   Cheap Baseball Hats   Cheap College Hats   Cheap Soccer Jerseys From China   Cheap Authentic NHL Jerseys   Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys   Cheap Replica Soccer Jerseys   Wholesale College Jerseys
