                               Golan Heights (Reuters) - Violence erupted on Israel's borders with Syria, Lebanon

                               and Gaza on Sunday, leaving at least eight dead and dozens wounded, as

                               Palestinians marked what they term "the catastrophe" of Israel's founding in 1948.



                               Israeli troops shot at protesters in three separate locations to prevent crowds from

                               crossing Israeli frontier lines in the deadliest such confrontation in years.



                               Israeli and Syrian media reports said Israeli gunfire killed four people after dozens

                               of Palestinian refugees infiltrated the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights from Syria,

                               along a disputed border that has been quiet for decades.



                               Witnesses on the nearby Lebanese frontier said four Palestinians were killed after

                               Israeli forces fired at rock-throwing protesters to prevent them from crossing the

                               border.



                               On Israel's tense southern border with the Gaza Strip, Israeli gunfire wounded 60

                               Palestinians as demonstrators approached Israel's fence with the Hamas Islamist-

                               run enclave, medical workers said.



                               In Tel Aviv, Israel's commercial hub, a truck driven by an Arab Israeli slammed into

                               vehicles and pedestrians, killing one man and injuring 17 people.



                               Police were trying to determine whether the incident was an accident or an attack.

                               Witnesses said the driver, who was arrested, ran amok with his truck in downtown

                               traffic. Continued...



                               The relations between First Quantum and the Democratic Republic of Congo have

                               gone from bad to worse in recent months, after the country expropriated the

                               miner’s $765 million Kolwezi copper tailings project in September.



                               When some of the most influential figures in emerging markets finance spoke to a

                               group of Reuters editors, they were asked about top picks for growth beyond the

                               so-called BRIC countries of Brazil, Russia, India and China.



                               The giggles started when the seventh journalist in a row said that his question was

                               for Egypt’s water and irrigation minister, Mohamed Nasreddin Allam.



                               It has debt levels to die for and huge amounts of oil, but economically it’s lagging

                               and political concerns remain. Speakers at a Libyan trade and investment forum

                               this week saw the North African country as a mixed bag.



                               If Guinea can pull off free and fair elections this weekend, it will lay the foundations

                               for what could be one of Africa’s most unexpected and significant good news

                               stories.
