Tunisians skeptical on eve of historic election

Renault chief sees Europe auto market slowing in 2015

French carmaker Renault chairman, Carlos Ghosn, said Saturday that he expects slower growth in Europe's auto market next year as it continues to recover from the global economic crisis. Ghosn, who is also Renault's chief executive officer, said the European market was growing at six percent so far this year -- the best since the 2007 crisis. "I'm expecting in 2015 this recovery to continue," Ghosn told journalists on the sidelines of an industry forum in China's commercial hub Shanghai. I think the increase will probably be more moderate than six percent... in line with GDP (gross domestic product) growth," he said, but gave no estimates for Renault alone.

Brazil poll rivals clash over corruption claim

Brazil's presidential candidates clashed over corruption allegations in a final debate, as incumbent Dilma Rousseff rejected a report that she knew about a kickback scheme at state oil giant Petrobras. The last debate before Sunday's run-off election was heated from the start as the report in conservative newsweekly Veja dominated opening exchanges before the candidates moved on to the economy and political reform. Center-right challenger Aecio Neves demanded to know what his leftist rival knew about Veja's claim that she and her predecessor Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva were personally aware of embezzlement within Petrobras, whose board Rousseff once chaired. "Veja magazine has presented no proof -- this magazine has a habit of trying to pull off an electoral coup right at the end of campaigning," Rousseff stormed as both candidates prepared to field questions from undecided voters from around the country.

Hundreds of thousands of Ebola vaccine doses could be rolled out to West Africa by mid-2015, the World Health Organization said, after a new case of the virus was reported in New York and a two-year-old girl died in the first case in Mali.

Steps include mandatory quarantine 21 days of any individual who has had direct contact with an Ebola patient while in Guinea, Liberia or Sierra Leone, including medics who treated Ebola patients.
