Tepco, the operator of Japan's wrecked Fukushima atomic plant, said it had successfully removed spent uranium fuel from a damaged reactor building in a key step in its clean up of the site after a nuclear disaster a decade ago. Formally known as Tokyo Electric Power, Tepco said it had transferred around 170 tonnes of spent uranium fuel from high up in the building to a safer location -- the second successful operation of its kind and the first to be carried out by remote control, due to the high radiation in the reactor building.

JERUSALEM — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday accused Iran of attacking an Israeli-owned ship in the Gulf of Oman last week. Netanyahu spoke to Israeli public broadcaster Kan and said that “it was indeed an act by Iran, that’s clear.” “Iran is the greatest enemy of Israel, I am determined to halt it. We are hitting it in the entire region,” Netanyahu said. The mysterious explosion struck the Israeli-owned MV Helios Ray, a Bahamian-flagged roll-on, roll-off vehicle cargo ship, as it was sailing out of the Middle East on its way to Singapore on Friday. The crew was unharmed in the blast, but the vessel sustained two holes on its port side and two on its starboard side just above the waterline, according to American defence officials. The ship came to Dubai’s port for repairs on Sunday, days after the blast that revived security concerns in Mideast waterways amid heightened tensions with Iran. It remains unclear what caused the blast. The Helios Ray had discharged cars at various ports in the Persian Gulf before the explosion forced it to reverse course. It docked in Dubai on Sunday for repairs and inspection. In recent days, Israel’s defence minister and army chief had both indicated they held Iran responsible for the attack. Overnight, Syrian state media reported a series of alleged Israeli airstrikes near Damascus, saying air defence systems had intercepted most of the missiles. Israeli media reports said the alleged airstrikes were on Iranian targets in response to the ship attack. Israel has struck hundreds of Iranian targets in neighbouring Syria in recent years, and Netanyahu has repeatedly said Israel will not accept a permanent Syrian military presence there. The Israeli military declined comment. There was no immediate response from Iran to the Israeli allegations. Iran also has blamed Israel for a recent series of attacks, including a mysterious explosion last summer that destroyed an advanced centrifuge assembly plant at its Natanz nuclear facility and the killing of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, a top Iranian scientist who founded the Islamic Republic’s military nuclear program two decades ago. Iran has repeatedly vowed to avenge Fakhrizadeh’s killing. Iranian threats of retaliation have raised alarms in Israel following the country’s normalization deals with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. ___ Associated Press writer Isabel DeBre in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, contributed to this report.

Metallic sparkle, second-screen visuals and turtlenecks galore help add sizzle to the virtual event.

Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo took the stage at the world's largest energy conference in 2019 to declare an age of U.S. dominance after a decade of rapid shale development made the United States the world's top oil and gas producer. Two years later, the oil industry is recovering from the worst recession it has ever experienced after measures to contain coronavirus stopped billions of people from traveling and wiped out one-fifth of worldwide demand for fuel. The U.S. fossil fuel industry is still reeling after tens of thousands of jobs were lost.
The continuing hostility and steadily worsening ties is serving little strategic purpose, particularly for Pakistan, and to some extent, for India.
A look at some of the key business events and economic indicators upcoming this week: SPOTLIGHT ON CONSTRUCTION The Commerce Department issues its latest tally of U.S. construction spending Monday. Economists project that spending increased by a modest 0.7% in January. That would follow a 1% increase in December, as strength in spending on residential projects, particularly single-family homes, offset a sustained weakness in nonresidential construction. With mortgage rates at historic lows, housing has been a star performer over the past year even as the pandemic ravages other parts of the economy. Construction spending, monthly per cent change, seasonally adjusted: Aug. 2.0 Sept. -0.2 Oct. 2.5 Nov. 1.1 Dec. 1.0 Jan. (est.) 0.7 Source: FactSet UNHAPPY HOLIDAYS Wall Street expects another lacklustre quarterly report card from Nordstrom. The upscale department store chain has been struggling to grow its sales through the pandemic, though it managed to follow up two quarterly losses with a smaller profit in the August-October quarter. Analysts predict the company will report Tuesday that its earnings and revenue fell in the November-January quarter versus a year earlier, reflecting a sharp decline in sales during the holiday shopping season. ALL ABOUT JOBS Economists predict hiring in the U.S. rebounded strongly in February after a dismal showing the previous month. They expect the Labor Department will report Friday that nonfarm employers added 200,000 jobs in February. That would follow a gain of 49,000 jobs in January. That tepid increase made scarcely any dent in the nearly 10 million jobs that remain lost since the coronavirus intensified about a year ago, underscoring the pandemic’s ongoing grip on the economy. Nonfarm payrolls, monthly change, seasonally adjusted: Sept. 716,000 Oct. 680,000 Nov. 264,000 Dec. -227,000 Jan. 49,000 Feb. (est.) 200,000 Source: FactSet The Associated Press
