By Toby Sterling AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - A Dutch court ruled on Tuesday that a 38-year-old man can be extradited to Canada to face charges of using a computer to harass and blackmail a teenager who later committed suicide. Judges said Aydin Coban, who denies harassing Amanda Todd or any other wrongdoing, can be sent to Canada after he stands trial in the Netherlands in another cyber extortion case, due to start in early 2017. The Canadian teenager committed suicide in October 2012, a month after releasing a widely-viewed YouTube video in which she detailed her suffering. ...

Schneider chairman of the management board of Fresenius SE attends annual news conference in Bad HomburgNestle's surprise appointment of former Fresenius chief Ulf Mark Schneider as its new CEO could trigger a series of acquisitions by the Swiss food giant to further its ambitions in nutrition and medical foods. Shares in the company rose 3.5 percent to 73.60 Swiss francs on Tuesday as analysts and investors digested the previous day's announcement of Nestle's first external hire as CEO in nearly a century and the potential for expansion of its relatively small but highly profitable health and wellness business. With estimated sales of about 4 billion Swiss francs ($4.09 billion) out of Nestle's total 88.8 billion francs in 2015, the health business is seen as faster growing and more profitable than Nestle's traditional food and beverage operations, which include Nescafe instant coffee and KitKat chocolate bars.


Rachel Bergstrom-Carlson, the Health Center Manager at Planned Parenthood South Austin Health Center in AustinBy Jon Herskovitz AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - Abortion providers in Texas reacted with surprise and elation on Monday to the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to throw out the state's restrictive abortion law and said they aimed to reopen some clinics shut down since the measure was passed in 2013. Since the law was passed by a Republican-led legislature and signed by a Republican governor, the number of abortion clinics in Texas, the second-most-populous U.S. state with about 27 million people, has fallen from 41 to 19. "I am honestly surprised by the Supreme Court decision," Rachel Bergstrom-Carlson, health center manager at Planned Parenthood of Austin, said at the clinic that performs about 250 abortions per month in the Texas state capital.


Zimbabwe's main opposition leader and President Robert Mugabe's chief rival for the last 17 years said on Tuesday he has been diagnosed with cancer of the colon and is undergoing treatment in neighbouring South Africa. Morgan Tsvangirai, 64, who was Zimbabwe's prime minister in an uneasy coalition government with the 92-year-old Mugabe from 2009 until 2013, said it was important for national leaders to disclose their health status. Mugabe routinely denies local media reports that he is suffering from prostate cancer and says his frequent trips to Singapore are for routine medical checks.
