  • Europe Stocks Gain on Solid Data; Oil Edges Lower
European stocks advanced as data from Germany and France signaled that the region’s economic recovery remains on track. U.K. assets showed resilience in the wake of a suicide bomb attack.
Technology companies helped spur the Stoxx Europe 600 Index after Nokia Oyj settled a litigation with Apple Inc., while S&P 500 futures extended gains. U.K. equities rose a third day, the pound pared its decline and gilts were steady after a terrorist attack killed at least 22 people at a concert in Manchester. Brazil’s real weakened after S&P Global Ratings said it my cut the country’s credit rating amid a political scandal. Oil dropped, halting a four-day rising streak that took the price of crude above $51 a barrel.
Confidence is building in the European economy, with data on Tuesday confirming the German economy is firing on all cylinders and France’s is gathering momentum, while a euro-area Purchasing Managers’ Index showed manufacturing in the bloc expanded at the fastest pace in more than six years. That’s bolstering the case for investing in the region as political turmoil in Washington rumbles on, diverting attention from President Trump’s spending and tax plans.
“Europe’s growth numbers aren’t knocking the skin off the ball, but they are less volatile and it’s doing relatively well compared to the U.S., U.K. and Japan,” said Bill Blain, head of capital markets at London-based Mint Partners. “More than a few global investors have lost faith in the U.S. recovery and Trump jump.”
The U.S. president in March asked Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats and NSA Director Michael Rogers to publicly deny existence of any collusion between his campaign and the Russian government, the Washington Post reported, citing unidentified current and former officials.

Army kills most wanted cultist in Rivers

Troops of 6 Division, Nigerian Army, in the early hours of Tuesday shot dead a notorious cultist during a gun battle in Sime community, Tai Local Government Area of Rivers.
Col. Aminu Iliyasu, the division’s Deputy Director of Army Public Relations, made the disclosure in a statement issued to newsmen on Tuesday in Port Harcourt.
He said that the deceased cultist was the leader of Dey Bam secret cult group fingered in extra judicial killings.
He added that the late cultist was on the wanted list of Rivers Police command.
Iliyasu said one suspected cultist was arrested while several others fled the scene with gunshot wounds in the operation that lasted several hours.
“Troops of 29 Battalion deployed to Ebubu, Eleme LGA and the anti-robbery team deployed along Port Harcourt–Akwa Ibom road conducted a successful raid operation in Sime community.
“During the operation, the troops engaged in gun duel with members of the notorious Dey Bam cult group led by one Mr Supreme, who has been on the wanted list of Rivers government.
“Supreme was shot during the gun battle and later died as a result of excessive bleeding while several others (suspected cultists) escaped with gunshot wounds.
“One SIGP228 pistol with registration number 299MME225 and ten rounds of 9mm ammunition were recovered during the raid,” he said.
Iliyasu said one suspected cultist was arrested and handed over to Rivers Police command for further investigation.
The spokesman said the raid was part of the army’s clampdown on persons and groups involved in criminality in the state and its environs.
According to him, the division has already deployed troops to strategic locations to safeguard lives and properties of residents of the state.
“Cultists and other criminal elements are hereby warned to desist from wicked acts and embrace the amnesty programme currently being offered by Rivers government.
“The division urges the residents to assist it with credible information that will lead to the arrest of criminals in their domain,” he pleaded.
Iliyasu said informants could reach the division through the following numbers: 09072509436, 09072509437 and 09072509438.
