China cuts key interest rate as recovery falters

From the BBC World Service: China's economy hasn't bounced back from the pandemic and now its central bank is stepping in, cutting one of its key interest rates for the second time in three months. Protests over economic hardship in Syria’s southern province of Sweida are continuing and there are calls for President Bashar al-Assad to step down. As the most successful Women's World Cup finishes, the infrastructure and facilities for the women's game lags behind the enthusiasm.
