North Korea said Sunday it had successfully put a satellite into orbit, with a rocket launch widely condemned as another defiant step towards developing a missile capable of striking the US mainland. The launch, which violated multiple UN resolutions, amounted to the North doubling down against an international community already struggling to punish Pyongyang for its nuclear test barely a month ago. The UN Security Council met behind closed-doors in New York to issue unanimous condemnation of the rocket launch, but a new sanctions resolution under negotiation for weeks has yet to be put to a vote.

Tens of thousands of Syrians were stranded at the border with Turkey on Monday after escaping a Russia-backed government offensive in Aleppo, as Germany's chancellor prepared to visit Ankara to press for tighter border controls. Turkey has vowed to help the crowds of people, including many women and children, but has not opened its borders and aid agencies have warned they are facing a "desperate" situation as they wait for help. "Turkey has reached the limit of its capacity to absorb the refugees," Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus told CNN Turk television.
By J.R. Wu TAINAN, Taiwan (Reuters) - A woman was pulled alive from the rubble of a collapsed building in the southern Taiwan city of Tainan on Monday and another man has been found alive trapped inside more than 48 hours after a deadly earthquake struck, officials said. Rescue efforts are focused on the wreckage of the 17-storey building, where 117 people are listed as missing and are suspected to be buried deep under the rubble. Wang Ting-yu, a legislator who represents the area, told reporters the woman, Tsao Wei-ling, was found lying under her dead husband.
As the Lunar New Year of the Monkey swings into action Monday, fortune tellers foresee 12 months of political and financial turbulence at the hands of the mischievous, unpredictable creature. Hong Kong's respected feng shui masters expect an incendiary mix as the monkey combines with the fire element, but also say the year ahead will be a boom time for clever innovation and women will be in the ascendant. The monkey is seen as belonging to the hard metal element, while fire represents the sun, says Hong Kong-based celebrity feng shui master Alion Yeo.

By Syed Raza Hassan GWADAR, Pakistan (Reuters) - A heavy police presence, guarded convoys, new checkpoints and troop reinforcements have turned parts of the southern port city of Gwadar into a fortress, as Pakistan's powerful military seeks to protect billions of dollars of Chinese investment. Securing the planned $46 billion economic corridor of roads, railways and pipelines from northwest China to Pakistan's Arabian Sea coast is a huge challenge in a country where Islamist militants and separatist gunmen are a constant menace. The armed forces and interior ministry have sent hundreds of extra soldiers and police to Gwadar, the southern hub of the so-called China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), and more are on their way.
Global markets have been in turmoil since the start of the year, with stocks and commodities prices reeling, eroding inflation and making central banks increasingly dovish - a trend that could continue with more weak economic data. China, a focus of much of the recent market concern, released foreign reserves data on Sunday which showed the central bank dumped dollars to defend the yuan and prevent an increase in capital outflows. The country's foreign reserves fell $99.5 billion to $3.23 trillion in January, the lowest level since May 2012, central bank data showed.
French carmaker Peugeot is to provide Iran Khodro with 427 million euros in debt waivers, bonuses and discounts under their first post-sanctions deal, the Iranian manufacturer said Sunday. Iran Khodro signed a deal with Peugeot during President Hassan Rouhani's trip to France last month to form a joint venture that is expected to invest up to 400 million euros ($436 million) over five years. Peugeot is the first Western carmaker to announce a return to Iran since many economic sanctions against it were lifted last month upon implementation of a landmark nuclear deal with world powers.
By Jessica Macy Yu BEIJING (Reuters) - A new breed of small investor is riding China's rollercoaster stock markets, looking for a quick buck and thriving on the volatility that has sent others scurrying to the exit clutching their stomachs. Last summer's 40 percent crash and a 20 percent drop so far in 2016 have sent trading volumes tumbling on the Shanghai and Shenzhen bourses, where retail investors account for 85 percent of the business, unlike more developed markets, where institutions dominate.
China’s foreign exchange reserves have fallen to their lowest level in more than three years, the central bank said Sunday, as Beijing sells dollars to stop the yuan from depreciating further. The world's largest currency hoard shrank by $99.5 billion in January to some $3.2 trillion, the People’s Bank of China said on its website, the lowest since May 2012. Worries about China's economy have pushed the yuan to a five-year low.
Government subsidies are fuelling a boom in electric vehicles in China, driving hopes for the industry's global future as the world's biggest car market offers economies of scale that could make the technology mainstream. Sales of electric cars, though still modest, have rocketed four-fold in a year -- thanks in part to lavish government handouts -- as Beijing looks to cut down on dangerous air pollution that shrouds urban areas. The sector has been a contrast with the rest of the market for cars in China, where growth has slowed markedly alongside the wider economy.

By Larry Fine SANTA CLARA, Calif. (Reuters) - Denver Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller was named the Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl 50 following his team's 24-10 triumph over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

By Deborah M. Todd and Rory Carroll SANTA CLARA, Calif. (Reuters) - Coldplay headlined at Sunday's Super Bowl halftime show, but it was R&B super stars Beyonce and Bruno Mars who delivered the sizzle with a lively, upbeat production that paid homage to previous halftime performers. After Coldplay crowd-pleasers "Paradise" and "Adventure of a Lifetime," a black-leather-clad Mars, who headlined the halftime show in 2014, bounced through "Uptown Funk!," with producer Mark Ronson on DJ decks on stage. Prior to the game, some fans speculated on social media that Beyonce would deliver a politically charged performance.
Coldplay and Beyonce went both retro and inspirational on Sunday as they put on a colorful Super Bowl halftime show full of flowers and happy children. While Coldplay was nominally the headliner at the American football championship game, it was Beyonce who made news -- moments after the show finished, a brief television advertisement announced that she will head on a world tour. With more than 100 million people estimated to be tuning into the Super Bowl, likely the top US television event of the year, Beyonce was ensured of maximum exposure.
By Steve Keating SANTA CLARA, Calif. (Reuters) - The Denver Broncos won their third National Football League championship with a 24-10 upset victory over the top-seeded Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 on Sunday. The Broncos scored early and never trailed as they held the league's highest-scoring offense in check en route to capturing their first Super Bowl title in 17 years. Denver's Peyton Manning, 39, playing in what could be the final game of his storied NFL game, added another line in the record books as he is now the oldest quarterback to play in a Super Bowl and first to reach 200 wins in the NFL.
By Anjali Athavaley and Melissa Fares NEW YORK (Reuters) - PepsiCo Inc's Doritos brand and Allstate Corp's Esurance unit were early winners on social media in the annual high-stakes battle of Super Bowl commercials. The Doritos ad, which featured a man crunching on chips while his wife gets an ultrasound, prompted 140,040 posts associated with the brand on Twitter in the first quarter, the most around any brand advertising during the game, according to Amobee Brand Intelligence, a marketing technology company. Meanwhile Esurance, which opted for a spot before kickoff, drew 221,319 tweets thanks to the company's push on social media to promote a sweepstakes under the hashtag #EsuranceSweepstakes.
Japan's Hideki Matsuyama outlasted Rickie Fowler by tapping in for par on the fourth hole of a marathon sudden-death playoff to win the US PGA Tour's Phoenix Open. The 23-year-old Matsuyama grabbed his second US tour title and improved on his runner-up finish to Brooks Koepka at last year's tournament in the Arizona desert. In his first appearance in Phoenix two years ago he finished in tie for fourth.
